Blog Thoughts: Breaking Open
Breaking ourselves open. Sounds scary for some and simple for others. There was a time when I would never consider this idea. That was a time of my youth locked away in the ideals of my upbringing that you don't talk about anything ever; hold it all in and never show yourself. That nearly killed me in a 14-year battle with disordered eating and body image and haunts me still in a journey walking through anxiety and depression that most individuals face; we just aren't talking about it. Hear that again; most people are struggling and productive human beings. There is no shame in mental illness. When we open ourselves up, we grow, we heal, we learn, and we become who we are meant to be. Consider these ideas today and I will bring this back more in depth next week with a blog post.
