TIME TO HEAL
People suffering from any form of mental illness are not cowards, bewitched, demon-possessed, attention-seekers nor are they being dramatic. All forms of mental illness are real, and they’re not a weakness.
Just pause and think of a time when the sun was not shining on you and everything was just bad, when you almost lost hope – you were not being a coward, right? Instead you wished and prayed that you would be kept safe until the storm you were facing could pass.
And that’s exactly what people with mental illnesseses want too. So let’s stop judging what we don’t understand.
We have to ensure these people have a strong support structure. To those suffering from any form of mental illness, it’s okay not to be okay – cry, take all the time you need to heal and protect your peace.
It’s all about your sanity, so nurture it. God sees you, and your time to experience a mental “glow up” is coming. Until then, make your mental health a priority. NONKULULEKO SIBIYA, PRETORIA
