To learn and progress in life we have to sometimes do things that are outside our comfort, confront difficult situations and emotions. However, the more we face, the more likely we will find it easier the next time. All these “pills” are hard to swallow but even accepting one can lead to a chain reaction of being able to cope with the rest. Each one is making a small change to our lives, which will benefit us for the long term.
When someone has a mental illness such as depression and anxiety these steps can seem impossibly large and unattainable. This can be for many reasons such as past experiences, lack of support around them or current situations.
If we offer help, guidance and an ear to listen to them, we can help those whom need encouragement to take steps, take the first step.
