This is my final post during May’s Mental Health Awareness Month. This month means so much to me and I will always be an advocate to mental health awareness. I try to share as much information as I can during this month and throughout the year. The stigma regarding mental health needs to end. I want to see more people getting the help they need because life is hard. It’s OK to admit life is hard and we all have some tough times.

I attached the image above because it reminds people of different types of mental health disorders. We need to not make people feel bad about anything they are going through that leads them to being diagnosed with any of these disorders. They are not shameful. We need to stop shaming people for their mental health challenges.

I have been doing better about checking in with my friends. When I know a friend is enduring a health challenge, I check in on them. I never stop praying. This has been a big season where I have had to really be there for my friends as they have been there for me. We look out for each other.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 King James Version.

Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing.

I wanted to include this Anxiety Scale that I found by MindJournal because I think we all need a chart for ourselves. Anxiety is real and something many people will face at one point or another. It doesn’t always have to be a disorder or debilitating. I like the chart because it just recognizes that many of us will face something at some point that will give us anxiety. Acknowledging our anxiety is Step 1. Once we realize what we are facing then we can check this scale to see where we are – is it a Level 1 or Level 3 kind of day?! If it is Level 3, how do we address it so we can get back to Level 1? If it’s Level 4, then it means you need to seek out a therapist. Therapy is OK and nothing to be ashamed of at all!

Music helps me so much to deal with my own anxiety. I know everyone handles their anxiety in different ways. I love music so much and it helps me so much to the point I love sharing songs with others. The songs I share are usually jazz or classical. I like calm music.

Take care of yourselves! Peace and Love …Always!

If no one else has told you lately they love you,
