I’m home and tired as hell!
And there are 20 random plans running in my head fighting for preference like..me first me first!
Well. There’s one plan I know for sure.
Last year May was mental health awareness month. And in April our lives were seared by bipolar disorder with diagnosis of a family member.
That’s what encouraged me to start the whole thing.
I have always been vocal about mental health awareness, for validation to the fighters and education to everyone.
168 compassionate people joined me in this effort. Even though I couldn’t do anything tangible but I have noticed some change.
Every time we reblog a post of a fighter, fellow bloggers flock around them and try to console and be there for them.
Sometimes people look for help and they can’t find any support at all.
It’s comforting to see a cry being heard.
Trust me I know what it’s like when you have no one.
The stigma around mental disorders won’t go soon. It’s a bitter truth and it depends on nation to nation, in some places it’s still shunned and vastly misunderstood. They are still blaming it on ghosts and whatnot.
So, coming to the point. I went by the list on my mental health post and covered 54 bloggers already.
By covering I mean I send them a request if I can reblog their post, the one they feel is most important.
I will ask rest of them and schedule all the posts for the month of May.
Meanwhile if there’s anything regarding the subject you want me to share please let me know, I will gladly reblog your suggested post.
It’s an invisible yet brutal battle. We, the people who understand need to stick together.
I have learned something. Sometimes you need to fight for others.
You need to lend your voice to the ones who have lost theirs. And it will earn you the solace you secretly crave for.
That’s all folks!
Have a good day.
