Today, I want to talk about mental health. This is a big, hot topic right now.
As somebody whose role it is to support ambitious business owners, I frequently see mental health issues rise to the surface.
We have a culture in the UK of stiff upper lip - putting our best foot forward and pretending everything is good all of the time.
Add in social media hype and you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re the only one dealing with a mental health issue right now.
But you could not be more wrong. And it's very important that you understand that you’re not alone.
I have general anxiety disorder. And I've recently found out I have ADHD, which I've been in denial about. But it makes a lot of sense. And I've also had my fair share of depression over the years.
Some of the best people I know have had serious mental health issues along the way. Our ability to really touch the depths of our soul in that way creates a situation where we can much more easily connect with other people. And so some of the best coaches, some of the best mentors that I've met have had serious mental health issues along the way.
The important thing is to please know that it's okay.
It's okay. You’re okay.
I understand how that might land. But it's a sad truth that mental health issues are normal right now. Which means you’re normal. What you’re going through is normal right now. Sad, but true.
The second thing for me is you MUST reach out. I cannot tell you how important this is.
I've helped many business owners navigate various mental health issues. One of the key things that is the difference between being able or not being able to navigate is really understanding what’s going on. Reaching out and finding someone to help you navigate that is absolutely worth its weight in gold. (If you’re looking for recommendations, please private message me and I will recommend some people that you can speak to.)
The third thing for me is to be kind to yourself. When people are in this place, they start berating themselves. They're beating themselves up for not being better or having their shit together, and trust me, it doesn't help. It's the worst thing you can do.
Be really kind to yourself, take time, be gentle and help yourself to navigate this.
Understand you are not alone.
It is so important that you know that.
