The message in that video is so powerful I think, nobody really knows what’s going on in somebody’s head, or what somebody’s been through
If I can talk about my stuff and be really open, hoping that will encourage other men to start talking
We just need that help, that spark, there’s so much to live, talking really saved my life!
The sexual abuse I suffered nearly killed me, I wanted it to kill me to take the pain away, and I now suffer with anxiety and panic attacks as a result. But I now talk about it, I want to talk about it, I want men to know that what’s happened has happened, there’s nothing I can do to change that, I live with it everyday. I’m using it to my advantage now though, using the awful things that happened to me as a child to inspire other men to share there thoughts, share there problems, don’t suffer in silence, I don’t any longer 😊😊😊
The stigma around male mental health thankfully is changing all the time, we no longer need to be embarrassed to talk, or to feel like we need to man up and stop crying. It’s ok to cry, ok to talk, and ok to reach out
Be kind to each other, have a great week 🙌🏻😊
