Knowing that your mental illness doesn’t define you isn’t a novel concept. Each and every one of us is a unique and special person, but some of us struggle with mental illness. Even though sometimes our lives are dictated by what’s going on in our heads, such as a lack of motivation to do something in our everyday lives and an inability to get out of bed, we’re more than the thoughts that go through our heads. I think this is an important concept for anyone to know, but those that don’t struggle with mental health won’t get it until those that are struggling with it internalize it themselves. That’s why in this episode, I talk about how I’m so much more than my mental illness.
I am not a doctor, so do not treat this as therapy or medical advice. I just do this podcast with the hopes that it can help some people.
