The Gift of Receiving

Understanding the Importance of Your Mental Health

In many cultures there is a stigma against receiving professional help.  In America there is a large cultural concept of the “self made” man or woman.  This concept ultimately neglects the fact that everyone has received help at one point in their lives; in fact, I guarantee that most people have received help more than once in their life.

We must let go of this concept of being “self made” and seek help when needed.  Many people suffer from physical alignments, illiteracy, and mental health issues because they are afraid of asking for help.  For this article I want to specifically focus on receiving help for your mental health. 

The benefits of mental health treatment

One’s mental health is important!  Your mental health is more than just feelings, emotions and thoughts.  Your mental health can greatly affect your wellbeing.  I hear many people complain about being tired, fatigued, feeling weak, irritable, snappy, or just simply angry.  While life is full of emotions, if you are feeling overwhelmingly one way for a significant amount of time you should seek help. 

Our body reacts to our emotions and thoughts often times in an undesirable manner.  Not seeking assistance for your mental health has negative consequences, such as: poor performance at work, straining personal relationships, isolation and even suicide.  A poor mental health is not something that only happens in your mind, it affects every area of your life.

Many people joke about being bi-polar, but people who are truly diagnosed with this disorder suffer greatly.  Your mental health is not a joke.  So if you need help –get it.  The strongest people in life are not the people who isolate themselves and do it all by themselves.  The strongest people in life are people who realize and understand who they are, they know when to ask for help.
