Why World Mental Health Day is every day

Every day is different, from one day to the next we can be up and down. With World Mental Health Day, we got to throw a spotlight on the fact that it’s okay to not be okay. But that wasn’t just yesterday – that’s a message for every day.

We all have mental health and to varying degrees we will all be affected by something in our lives that will have a detrimental effect on our mental health.

So if you’re struggling right now, it’s okay, it will pass and it may become your pivotal experience in your life. And when you’re in the storm it’s okay to not be okay.

Why infertility is the symptom of your emotional distress

Rarely will you question your purpose, your very existence, more so than when you’re trying to conceive, considering life itself is inherently in question. Therapists call this kind of life crisis an ‘existential crisis’. It comes with deep and profound impact on the psyche.

What we’re talking about is SHAME, and it’s deep rooted and insidious.

Shame is a powerful force with infertility. Shame is a powerful emotion on our psyche.

Shame says “I’m WRONG!” At my deepest core I am not right, I am not okay. And we don’t want people to see it, or to know it. Because we feel unworthy of love and belonging.
