I wanted to start my blog by talking about the events of my life that have led to the emotional pain I feel. Instead I have been sitting here considering some reasons why I haven’t put a name to my blog. Why haven’t I put a face to my blog? And my answer simply is I am embarrassed.. I am embarrassed to admit that I have a mental illness. I am embarrassed that I have had this mental illness for little under a decade and I have not yet realized the help I need to relieve myself of these issues inside me. I am embarrassed that I am scared of what people who know me might think of me as a person if I admit to them that I am struggling. And worst of all I am embarrassed that every day I contradict myself by telling others and wholeheartedly agreeing that mental illness shouldn’t be a taboo issue anymore, that we should embrace it and learn form each other.
So why can’t I put my face to my name?
Why can’t I be one of the brave pioneers that walk without fear.
What am I so scared of?
