Why Mental Health Matters to Me

I believe that for most of my life mental health has played a major role. Since I was a kid I have been well aware of what goes on in my mind. From my vivid and encompassing imagination to my unforgiving craziness, I have felt the repercussions of every thought. Mental health matters to me. And I hope it matters to others too.

I see a lot of pain in this world. People struggle and suffer every day, and for most it seems like there is no relief in sight. Of course there is external pain, but what about the internal pain? What about the pain that people tend to hide from others, their darkest secrets that likely won’t see the light of day? That pain can be just as bad as the pain forced upon us by the external, yet it seems like we don’t know how to deal with it. I think what makes the internal pain harder to deal with us that we inflict that pain on ourselves. In that instance we are our greatest enemies. We know all about our weaknesses and insecurities, and we use them to tear ourselves down. We are merciless when it comes to dealing with our faults. And I think a large part of that comes from how we deal with our mental health.

There is no one solution in dealing with our internal pain, but I believe that our handling of our minds is key in trying to achieve some relief. We need to tap into our minds and try to figure them out. Becoming more familiar with our inner workings can open our eyes to how we operate. We can become more familiar with what makes us feel pain and how we can move past that pain. It may not be easy at first, but I believe that with practice we can learn how to deal with our internal pain.

Mental health is very important, and we must continue to work towards a healthier lifestyle. Our mind controls everything, but we must learn how to control it.

The pain that we suffer through teaches us life lessons, but we must make sure that our mind can adequately process these lessons. Mental health is as equally important as physical health. We must exercise our minds and work to develop them to a higher level. When we become more in tune with our minds, we become more aware of ourselves. Mental health cannot be neglected. There is too much at stake.
