Accepting our emotions

The person who’s wearing a purple shirt is showing both hands. Hands are filled with words that describe a variety of emotions and personalities and say “Just Me” in the middle.

When you think about depression or anxiety, what kind of image do you have about them? You may think that they are problematic or bad emotions that you would like to get rid of.

In the spirit of Mental Health Awareness Month, I would like to challenge that idea! I believe feelings of sadness, worries, and anger are all normal human emotions. What we may want to try is accepting them to manage them, rather than rejecting them.
