There are people who are strong enough to overcome emotional or psychological distress. However, this doesn’t mean you should not address these issues honestly take another level of courage.
This is extremely important to address it because it gets worst with the passage of time. “Anything that goes untreated will eventually get worse,” Kiaundra Jackson, LMFT, a licensed marriage, and family therapist and author of Staying Sane In An Insane World, was quoted as saying by Bustle.
There are several reasons because of which some people put off dealing with their mental health. The most common reason is the perception that one needs to be ‘tough’ while dealing with such a situation. But this can lead to a lot of problems and therefore never ignore these signs:
Here are some signs that show you are not addressing issues related to mental health:
