Don’t Dismiss Broken Minds.

In honor of this being mental awareness month..

I just want to say that your mental health is just as important as your physical health. You wouldn’t dismiss broken bones so why dismiss a broken mind?

If you know you’re not in the right headspace and haven’t been for a while, get help. It’s okay! It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. There are so many people out there who want to help you and guess what? You reaching out to them is not weakness. In fact, it’s a sign of strength! Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make. Honestly, you don’t have to go through what you’re going through alone.

Let’s say you’re in a good headspace though! Everything’s cool, copesthetic and your mental health is at an all time high for the most part but every now and then certain people will come around to try and disrupt that. How? They do it with their negative energy, poor attitudes and bad vibes and sometimes they’re so aggravating that if you dwell long enough on the little petty stuff that they’re doing, you automatically compromise your mental health and any little peace that you had.

Speaking from my own personal experiences, there are over seven trillion nerves in the human body and I promise you that there are some people in my life that are capable of getting on every last damn one of them!! I am so serious when I say being around them compromises my self peace after a while! So here’s something that I’ve learned to say that helps me and it’s a really good mental reminder:

“My Peace is more important.”

Always remember that when you find yourself reacting to something that doesn’t deserve your energy. Prioritize your inner wellness and learn to cultivate an active mindset of peace by consciously deciding that you’ll elevate higher than any situation that arises, especially the petty ones. Know when to let foolery be foolery and know when to stop talking and just walk away.

There are two other things that have been a major help to me:

  1. Setting Boundaries & making people respect them.
  2. Saying “No” & meaning it. NO is a whole and complete sentence all by itself. It doesn’t need any explanation behind it!!

At the end of the day though, do what YOU need to do in order to keep the entire being of your mental health protected! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today!!

  1. I love everything you share Jessica, but has so much meaning to me. I am trying my best to set boundaries and say NO way more often! I have found setting boundaries with family difficult, but I am getting better at it. I have learned to say no at work more often, which is progress! I hope you are having a nice weekend and your son is doing much better!

    1. Girl, same here !! Sometimes I find myself having to reevaluate my boundaries and set new ones! The most important thing is that I abide by them!! β™₯️
      RJ is doing much better!! Still having some issues but getting better !! Thank you so much !! 😘😘

  2. LOVE THIS ❀️ First as a mental health counselor I love to see people creating the space for other or letting them know that it’s okay to need help/to ask for help. We all need it sometimes whether it’s a quick vent session or a couple sessions with someone we don’t know. Second the No being a complete sentence is so true it’s something I had to learn not to feel guilty about saying so thank you for this !

  3. Since I started saying no more often and actually meaning it I feel that my whole perspective and mental health has changed so much! Before I would get dragged along bc I didn’t like to say no and I was miserable most of the time however now I feel so empowered everytime I actually say what I feel, great post!

    1. Saying β€œno” is definitely a feeling of taking your power back or maybe not that … maybe it’s that feeling of respecting of what YOU actually want for yourself !! πŸ’• I totally agree!! Thanks so much for reading and commenting !!

  4. Omg yes to every single damn thing! So relatable and true! If we keep trying to please people and not put ourselves first, we are the only ones left feeling crappy and sad! If we don’t love ourselves enough to take care of us in a wholesome way, how can we expect anyone else to!
    Nicely written, hun!πŸ™‚β€

    1. Thank you!! I couldn’t agree more !! & your very first sentence in this comment made me laugh out loud !! LOVE YOUR rawness and straightforwardness!!! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜ thanks so much for reading and commenting!!

  5. This is so true! If your mind is broken then you really have nothing until it’s fixed – it leads you through all of your life and is the MOST important thing we need to take care of!!

  6. Awesome and so true post, you will find yourself going down when putting people first. We need to take care of mental health as much as physical health.
