You may be considering on seeking counseling services. .
Psychotherapy, talk or talking therapy, counseling, or simply therapy—no matter the name it’s known by, mental health counseling can benefit people struggling with emotional difficulties, life challenges, and mental health concerns.
Therapy can help improve symptoms of many mental health conditions. In therapy, people also learn to cope with symptoms that may not respond to treatment right away. Research shows the benefits of therapy last longer than medication alone. Medication can reduce some symptoms of mental health conditions, but therapy teaches people skills to address symptoms on their own. These skills last after therapy ends, and symptoms may continue to improve, making it less likely people will need further treatment.
Mental health issues are common. Recent statistics from the National Alliance on Mental Health show 1 out of every 5 American adults lives with a mental health condition, while 1 in 25 adults lives with a serious mental health condition.
But only about 40% of people with mental health issues get help. Untreated mental health issues often get worse and may have other negative effects. They could also lead to: 📍Inability to work or go to school
📍Difficulty in relationships or taking care of children
📍Increased risk of health issues

When hate goes untamed and is accepted as the societal norm, millions of people will lose their lives as a consequence of a government gone bad.
They have desensitized the masses so immensely that injustice is only unjust when it directly hits home.
The inhumane shit taking place on the other side of your fence is none of your business.... Until,
the imaginary borders you’ve put up in your head can no longer contain the chaos you thought you’d evade forever because turning a blind eye has gotten you this far, right?
No answer necessary.➡️The youth are dying, disappearing to organ trafficking, and committing suicide at genocidal rates in this country, families are being ripped apart by court systems in your states, and police are practicing guerrilla warfare on city blocks daily.
Why aren’t we fucked up about any of this?🤔 Does anyone seem to care?
What exactly are we allowing to exist in our presences?
Maybe you have seen this film; perhaps, you haven’t. In any case, watching it right now in your life will be edifying I promise💌

I used to give him so much hell bc I was so "independent". Always the type to hustle for what I wanted, never asking for handouts or help, never blaming anyone for my circumstances but myself.
He used to hate when I would hurry to open my own door... and the use of the phrase "I got it" became more like a broken record in our relationship. See when you've been in survival mode for so long, being Independent is something you hold close. My guard was up bc I didn't want to be hurt..I felt like that was something I could control. That no man or woman would say "because of them" is why I had the things I possessed... that included my peace and joy not just material things. I was not gonna give anyone the Power to interrupt those things either.
I wasn't the easiest to deal with, even in the beginning of our marriage..but one day God broke me down..It didn't happen overnight but I had to learn to put my selfish ways aside, and let my husband do what he wanted to do.. which was to LOVE & PROTECT me. I used to look at him trying to "protect" me as being "controlling" from things I'd been through in the past. I had to learn how to let those guards down so that I could love completely. Because I wasn't giving him my absolute best, I wasn't being vulnerable... Women allow your man to be the MAN ... that's HIS role... I'm not saying it'll be an overnight thing .. especially for those who have Independent natures, however... let him LEAD... and watch what happens ♡ We aren't perfect, FAR FROM IT .. but we are imperfectly perfect for each other♡
Be sure to check out Black Red Guard on YouTube. He talks about Maoism, settlers and ethnic revolution, the Black Panther Party, and even the fascinating political development of Martin Luther King jr.
Gospel. ♥️📖|| But also understand that no human is immune to moments of feeling down or defeated...NOT ONE. The only difference is, certain humans will not allow themselves to stay down.
Remember, all emotions are vital; feelings of sadness, anger, frustration and fear are normal. But so are feelings of joy, gratitude, contentment, and positivity.
Emotional intelligence is your ability to experience all emotions in a balanced way. Remembering that too much anger or even too much positivity can both be dangerous for your mental health and overall emotional fortitude.
We have to accept the good and bad in life, (the ying and the yang) as a reality before we can truly be free. That is the path to our most authentic selves and inner peace. You feel me? #blkgrlpeace
