30 Mental Health Quotes
Here is our collection of mental health quotes. Keeping your mental health in check is not something that anyone can teach you how to do, all anyone can do is help you to find your own way. What I’m about to write comes from a dark place, a place that I dare not face head-on due to the unbelievable pain it can cause when I open that never-ending can of worms. But the idea that there are other people out there with these issues has inspired me to share.
Growing up through my teenage years I suffered some mental trauma that closed me down. Put me into a desolate and dark room with no lights, trapped from the outside world by the impenetrable barrier of my own mind. There was no chance of escape, and absolutely no shred of hope to be found. The human mind can be a torturous place at times, and finding the strength to push yourself out of that dark place is no easy task and requires mental strength and conditioning that some people don’t feel like they have. But let me tell you from the bottom of my heart that you can escape that place. Mental health needs to be rebuilt from the ground up, for that exit door to finally appear.
No matter how low you are feeling there is always hope, even if it is currently shrouded from view. I had help from doctors and councilors, who my grandad who is sadly no longer with us, paid for. I was lucky to have a loving family around me who helped to slowly chip away at that dark prison, but most importantly, I had the words of people who had been through similar experiences. I found joy in inspirational writings and I was inspired to help people in my own way. It’s one of the main reason I write content for wow4u. I want people to know that there is happiness and love right outside your window if only you take the time to have a look!
If you have found this content inspiring and it has helped you in any way then please share! Together we can achieve anything, even knocking down that mental prison you have found yourself in!
