I’m baaaack! Only this time… a little more half-assedly? I assure you, Taylor has put in all the work in this event. I mostly failed hard at finding contributors? Look, the actual point of this event is that life is hard and sometimes things are garbage and it’s okay to talk about it, so here we are. I kind of hoped that it’d be as easy as it had been in the past: I put out a form, a certain number of people respond, guest posts acquired. Well, that isn’t what happened. I have two wonderful guest posts to share with you. I’ll be doing a couple posts myself. We’ll just call this Shattering Lite™ ?♀️
Last year, I wrote a post for Taylor’s blog for the event. Life was bananas and I absolutely couldn’t even think of hosting. Looking for a job and a place to live and legal junk out the wazoo.. yeah hard pass. Things are calmer now. You know, a little! I’ll be straight with you: working full time while raising two kids completely solo? It’s rough. I had no idea how rough it would be. But now that we’re in a routine, things are working. The kids are in counselling and doing really well. I too have found a new counselor (who happens to have a law background, so it’s doubly good) and am doing okay. Overwhelmed, but okay.
So, we shall again discuss why the bullshit stigma around mental health is so harmful. We will highlight books and other media that tries to quell said stigma. We’ll hear from others who have been affected by it all. And at the end of the day, hopefully we’ll all come away with a little more understanding, knowledge, and compassion.
TWO (2) Winners will receive a mental health book of their choice- Open Internationally!
