Whoa it has been a crazy week, so far, messed with my blogging mojo on Monday. Today’s Wisdom on Wednesday, has to deal with Mental Health. As I continue to watch the series, My 600 lb Life, it makes me so sad how many people turn to food as a comforter. Food addiction is a real thing, and is caused by many factors, but so many kids experience trauma that never gets dealt with, and food becomes their drug of choice. Society puts such a negative stigma on Mental Health, and I probably have some of my own judgement issues in that department. I also have trauma as a child, that I never really dealt with, other than leaving it behind. A Bible study I just finished, called Soul Cry, brought some of that trauma very much back to the forefront of my memory. It really is a beautiful Bible study, and I highly recommend it. We all have trauma, at some point in our lives, and if we don’t learn to take it head on and cope with it, it can lead to lots of self destructive behaviors. Don’t be afraid to seek counselling, it can make all the difference in the world. Constructive, coping skills can be learned.
Have a blessed Wednesday!
