Emotional health is a priority. We need to stop sweeping things under the rug.
You know what I always say…. Silence is the enemy.
My podcast The Be Ruthless Show has a recurring theme: damage is done when we continuously sweep things under the rug and avoid talking about our emotions.
It’s important to deal with things so that they don’t resurface in other ways. So that they don’t last longer. So that the intensity lessens rather than grows.
The country has been through a lot recently.
And the things we see in the news are just examples of what the world deals with every single day!
When we ignore talking about our emotions, our feelings, when we do not intentionally make it a habit to be shameless or bold about those things, damage is done. And the effects ripple, impacting those around us.
Contrastingly – When we communicate and lead by example, we give others the space to do the same.
Just saying “I’m feeling kind of off today” opens the door for honest conversation. That’s a good first step towards emotional health.
Mental Health professionals like myself are at our busiest because there are life transitions happening for all of us – and let’s not forget our teenagers and young adults. There are big life moments, real feelings that NEED to be talked about.
Sometimes that’s easier said than done. Sometimes it’s difficult to find the words. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable.
But you don’t have to navigate through it alone.
There are trained professionals, like myself, to help you through the uncertainty and discomfort.
Lean on us.
