It doesn’t feel like a Saturday, but I’m pretty sure it is.

I’ve been in an odd head space most of the day, so not sure what I should post about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. I’ve known this all month, been very aware of it. I’ve drafted a few different posts about this, about my own experiences with mental health, but I haven’t published them. We’ll see if this even makes it in. But I want to at least acknowledge this topic, even if I’m still not ready to talk about it. I may never be ready or willing to talk about my own journey. But this is an important topic and so hopefully, one day, I’ll find that courage.

Damn. I’m crying already just having written that much. I think I ought to just hurry up and hit the publish button before I lose my nerve.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, and even more important, I hope everyone realizes how important they are, how much influence they have, and that they are loved and can love.

    This was a brave share, my friend. I am sending you the biggest virtual hug if support and empathy. I see and love you, my friend. Everyone’s journey is different, but you are not alone in this struggle. You matter very much to me and are a light in my world. Perhaps unwittingly, they’re have been times when your presence in my life has helped me thorugh my own journey. I always liked the Dass quote, “We’re all just walking each other home.”
