You are a brave soul
by Tracey Metzger
When I think of someone brave, I think of someone doing daring acts like sky-diving or climbing Mt. Everest or bungee jumping. Yes, there is risk involved, but with all of those things there is an obvious payoff. There is a rush of adrenaline and a sense of accomplishment and perhaps some accolades to come.
Putting yourself out there and owning your depression, disorder or mental illness feels like all risk and no payoff. Of course that isn’t true, but that is what it FEELS like.
Reaching out for help is quite possibly the bravest thing you will ever do.
