My mental health journey after a traumatic event

My mental health journey hasn’t been an easy one. It all started a few years ago when I experienced a traumatic event that completely changed my life. Despite not really understanding what happened at the time, I felt incredibly overwhelmed and out of control in ways I had never before experienced.

I remember feeling like I was no longer living my own life or in control of how I responded to situations and even my emotions. After talking to some friends, they suggested professional help and I knew deep down that this was something that could really help me.

I was so incredibly hesitant at first as seeking help felt so intimidating but after taking the leap and exploring different approaches to therapy, it has been an absolutely incredible experience for me and has allowed me to explore my mentality in ways that weren’t possible before. Although it can be challenging and difficult at times, each day is another step towards bettering myself mentally and improving how I handle stressful situations and everyday life situations.

It’s now been a few years since I made that call for help and despite still having days where it feels like there’s too much going on in my head; overall, there have been vast improvements in my mental health which makes every tough moment worth it all.
