Inspire Me Mondays: Vulnerability Doesn’t Make You Weak…

strong

Peace Soulstars,

That moment may be different for each person.  Usually a moment means a “short period of time”.  Well, I think it’s safe to say that a moment can be months or years even.  The point is that despite being knocked down you eventually get back up.  It’s not “weak” to show emotion or to be vulnerable.

Last week, I stepped out of my comfort zone and into the seat of vulnerability by sharing my experience with postpartum depression.  It wasn’t easy and I had put it off for a long time because I wasn’t sure I wanted to share my story.  Since I’ve been embarking on my spiritual journey and healing myself I thought I’d share what motivated me to go into the mental health field.  It was my own battle with depression that made me want to look into this further and help others.  I made it my mission, my motivation to get my Master’s degree in social work because of it.

 

Love and light,
