#TimeToTalk day. What a fantastic idea! Breaking the stigma!
I am inspired by the people who speak out on social media about their mental health issues but I personally would never dream about opening up about my daily struggles.
1. Who cares and 2. I don’t want people I know judging me.
But it feels wrong to not voice it, to not join in with the the #timetotalk movement to end the stigma surrounding mental health issues – but I’m too scared to. I don’t want people gossiping about me, or calling me an attention seeker. Those people who don’t truly understand what it’s like to struggle with poor mental health who are so quick to pass judgement. But that’s the stigma – without speaking out, there will always be this judgment. I should join in…
I’d love to write a simple post on my private social media accounts about #timetotalk day but… I’m afraid.
So as always, I stick to being anonymous so I can’t be judged.
