Jealousy isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s human nature. It’s natural to feel jealous from time to time. Jealousy becomes tricky when we act out in jealousy or we wallow in it. It becomes questionable when it starts to consume you and creeps into every aspect of your life and you find yourself feeling bitter and angry most of the time.
When I was doing research for blog topics, I came across Mental Health American, the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all Americans, and their Million In May campaign. The goal for the campaign this year is to encourage as many people to take a free mental health screening and reach one million mental health screenings! May is Mental Health Month so I thought it would be cool if I shared my mental health story with everyone. I have talked about my mental health struggles before, but I don’t think I have gone into very much detail. Opening up about this stuff is kind of scary, but I think it will be worth it.
