It’s World Mental Health Day today (10th October), and I usually say something about it — typically in a tweet. This time, I’m allowing myself some extra words.
It’s important to acknowledge when you’re having problems; that’s the first step. It’s important to talk about it, and I know that’s a scary prospect. It’s important to seek help — and help is available.
It’s also important not to be a hypocrite.
So: I’m having problems. It’s a different world than it was a couple of years ago, and I’m backsliding. I’m going to get some help.
If you’re having trouble too, you should do the same.
