The #TotalHonestyTuesday Roundup, Vol. 7

Total-Honesty-Tuesday_V6Every week, we’re participating in #totalhonestytuesday, sharing the things we’d usually keep off of social media, and giving a little more insight into our real (and very un-perfect) lives. Hopefully, in doing this, we can all feel a little less pressure to appear a certain way online, and remember that everyone around us is much more than just the highlight reel we normally see.

And every Wednesday, we’re collecting stories shared on the hashtag here, so we can read them together and start our mid-week mornings with a little honesty.

#totalhonestytuesday inspired. I really like this quote. "Not everyone will understand your journey. That's fine. It's not their journey to make sense of. It's yours." So many people struggle with mental illness and because of the negative stigma society puts on it, most of them struggle alone. They are afraid to share their deepest struggles for fear of judgement or backlash or being deemed unfit to be successful. Sadly, many leave us before we get the chance to tell them it's okay and that they aren't alone or weird or so different. They are human and we all have our struggles. So be kind to people and remember we still have a long way to go when it comes to acceptance especially of those struggling with mental illness. Not all people who struggle with it are bad or evil, remember that. Mental illness doesn't create bad people…bad people do so don't let that be an excuse to pass judgement on others. There are plenty of people who struggle with it and don't kill people but rather are highly functioning members of society. So if you ever feel alone…you can always reach out to me I will never judge and be happy to listen. Also remember that not everyone will understand your journey but that's okay because it's yours. 🌻❤️ #strong #mentalillness #struggle #human #kindness #love #notalone #bekind #life #inspiration #quotes #change #awareness #nojudgement #acceptance #itwillbeokay #strength #staystrong #truth #sharingideas #thoughts #realtalk #serious
