On the 1st of February I got a DM on Twitter by a guy saying he was battling mental illness and his goal was to help others that go through the same thing.
I suggested that he takes part in our community and feature his story here and he did.
I must admit that I didn’t expect to be so shocked with what I read…This is his story:
My thoughts on mental illness
I can’t speak in terms of a scientific approach, I am completely lost everytime I read a specific term concerning mental illness on a blog post but that doesn’t mean I don’t believe it exists.
I may not understand specific aspects of it but I do understand one thing: human feelings. What Ross went through 4 years ago might be the case for someone else this very moment!
So if there’s any chance of someone near you going through a hard time and the thought of you talking to him or her about it crosses your mind, don’t brush it off!
Worst case scenario you fail to initiate a meaningful conversation – best case scenario you may save someone’s life!
I’ve seen people being bullied in front of my eyes every day when I was still in school and I’ve always wanted to talk to them about it but I never had the courage to do so. I thought that they might become uncomfortable and close up even more, so I did the only thing that made sense to me. I tried to be a friendly presence in their life, a daily bit of carefree chat. I like to think that this alone helped them a little.
Ross is a mental health blogger and his blog is his personal journal where he shares his feelings in hope of helping others.
