Often times, I start conversations with people by asking a simple question: "how's your mental health?". A year ago, people thought it was a weird question. Now when I ask, people smile. I don't know what's changed, but it seems like it's becoming more acceptable and that's awesome.
Recently, someone asked me how I respond to that question. And my answer is some days I feel like a bird and sometimes I feel like a statue. Sometimes both. When I'm a bird, I have good mental health that day. When I'm a statue, that just means I've been getting shit on and/or I feel like shit. And there are days, where I feel like both.
So ya. Yesterday, I was a statue. Today, I'm a bird. That's life I guess.
That being said, I wish you all great mental health. May we all work on our mental health and strive to be a bird everyday.
