Why You Might Want to Be Ashamed of Someone With Mental Health Issues

There is not one person I have talked to in my lifetime who isn’t mentally struggling. Mental health issues are a natural part of a human experience. Shame and stigma related to this matter is another sign of its existence even in us, who consider ourselves “normal”. Fear of being judged, our mind wants to disown the label.

The way I see it, we all have issues and all issues are mental. After all, if it isn’t bothering the mind then what is it bothering? So, every person who has a mind and issues, also has mental health issues. It’s time we stop the shame and start understanding how similar we are on the inside.
