Supporting mental health

Choosing to spend time with people who are good for your mental health is essential.

Yes, even if sometimes those people are related to you.

Maybe it’s even more important if they are family as the emotional damage goes much deeper and is so much harder to heal.

The damage and emotional harm from abusive family is lifelong, no matter how much you think you’ve recovered.

Your ‘chosen’ family are far more likely to love you unconditionally, and on the basis of ‘its ok to have a different opinion, and ‘do no harm.’

  2. Walking away from rough road is the best way to go as long as we choose the next road.
    It is like switching off the radio when you don’t like to listen to that music or changing channel on TV.
