I have a thing for wooden pencils and Singapore’s 50-cent coins, so I’ve been collecting them since I was a child
I write post-it notes of love and encouragement to myself regularly.
“Apart from my work with clients with mental illnesses, I’ve also had the honor of sharing the experience of some friends and family as they overcome their own mental illnesses. The journey was not always an easy one for them nor was it for those around them. But because they gave people who love them a chance to be there for them, everyone gets to grow together — individually in their own beautiful way, and as a family, friends alike.
It is OK to speak up and talk about our problems because it is OK to not feel okay sometimes, especially when troubles trouble us for too long. It is NOT Ok to allow ourselves to struggle alone. Having a mental illness is not a crime nor is it something to be ashamed of. So speak up now! For yourself and for those you care about. You never know how much of a difference you can make to yourself and so many others around you, with just one voice.”
