How to Love Yourself: Mental Health and Self-Deprivation

Mental health is a huge issue in today's society. So many people suffer from mental illness and don't know how to get help. This can often lead to self-deprivation, which only makes the problem worse. In this blog post, we will discuss mental health and how it correlates to self-love. The better we learn to love ourselves, the less anxiety and depression we will experience. We will also discuss ways to help improve mental health and provide helpful resources for those who need them.

Mental health is as important to the brain as water is to the life of plants

Mental illness is often stigmatized in our society. This needs to change. Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, and we need to start talking about it more openly. Too many people suffer in silence because they are afraid of the judgement of others. We need to break the stigma and help those who are suffering.

Self Deprivation

One of the biggest problems with mental illness is that it can often lead to self-deprivation. When we don't love ourselves, we are more likely to experience anxiety and depression. We may also start to believe that we are not good enough, which can lead to further mental health issues. It's important to learn how to love yourself and accept compliments from others. If someone tells you that you're doing a great job, believe them!

Help the younger generation

Growing up in today's world has many obstacles, the last thing the new generation needs is to see self-deprivation from the adults in their life. The more they see the same pattern of self-deprivation, the more they will learn that this is normal, and adjust their outlook on life to accommodate this. In order to make sure the new generation doesn't have the same problems we had growing up, we need to find self-love within ourselves, so that anytime they are listening and learning from us, they learn that self-love is the outlook they should adjust to.

What would you do differently?

Imagine being able to fix one thing in your childhood growing up, specifically at school. Some people say they would want to change their social status or how many friends they had. What do these two things have in common? Wanting others to validate where we see ourselves.

There are some people who would say they would want to change their grades, and others may be the fact that they were bullied. What do these two things have in common? Questioning our worth based on others' perception of what is right. The only way to succeed in school is to be an A+ student. Or, You aren't cool enough to be our friend, and we are going to make fun of everything we don't think is cool.

We need to help them

Unfortunately, our youth is all about comparing ourselves to others, but if we can provide them with different outlooks; such as I want to be the best version of myself every day, and I should only be comparing myself to me because that will truly show me where I am in my journey.

Therapists can help

If you're struggling with mental health issues, there are resources available to help you. Finding a therapist that works well for you is important. The process of finding a therapist can be daunting, but it is often worth the effort. There are many factors to consider, such as personality, experience, and approach. In addition, it is important to find someone who you feel comfortable talking to and who you feel truly understands your needs.

Find the one for you

Therapists can vary widely in terms of their style and approach, so it is important to take the time to find one that works well for you. However, once you find a good therapist, the benefits are exponential. A therapist can provide support, and guidance, and help you work through difficult challenges. In short, finding a therapist that is a good fit for you can be an incredibly valuable investment in your well-being.

Medications may help

You may also want to consider if medication is something that would help you. Medication often has a bad stigma and people can tend to label others that take medication for mental illnesses, but the truth is that medication can be an extremely effective treatment for mental illness, and there is a need for greater education around this fact.

It could help you

Mental illness is often thought of as an intractable problem, but the truth is that medication can make a tremendous difference for many people. Mental illnesses come from our brain chemistry as well as from past traumas and learned behaviours. It can be a challenge for some to change the way the brain perceives the world without medication, and sometimes people only need medication at the start of their self-love journey.

Time to break the stigma

The stigma surrounding mental illness is a complex and multi-layered issue. There is a danger in perpetuating the idea that mental illness is something to be ashamed of. This can lead to people feeling isolated and reluctant to seek help. In order to address the stigma surrounding mental illness, we need to encourage open dialogue and understanding. Only then can we hope to provide the support that so many people need.

There is no shame in seeking help, and there are many resources available to you. You are not alone in this, and we want to help you get the assistance you need.
