When was the last time you did a little something just for you?All too often, we hear stories about the endless and tireless efforts that people go through making sure that they are pleasing others in their lives. Making sure their spouse is happy, the boss is content and the children are taken care of. But rarely do we find that people take the time to love and take care of themselves, self-nurture and make sure that they too are taken care of.Like Cinderella, a new pair of shoes can have a huge impact on your day, and may even change your life! So go ahead, get that new pair of shoes and let it brighten up your day. You deserve it. ๐Ÿ‘ ๐Ÿ‘ #MAF #mentalawarenessfoundation #MAFwalk #selflove #speakup #support #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention #seekhelp #taketime #findyourunwind #live #learn #love #QMHW ...

๐Ÿ“ Life is about contentment. Doing your best, giving your best and making the best out of what you have, in whatever situation you are in. Do not compare yourself, or your life with others.

For many of us, we are still learning about mental health and mental illnesses. There are so many facets surrounding it that it will take time to fully understand or grasp everything about it.But as long as we keep our hearts open to understanding and accepting those who are suffering from it, and we open our homes and communities to conversations that will be beneficial to it, then we can make a difference.Together, let's acknowledge the realities of mental illnesses and help provide a safe and caring environment for those who are struggling with it.It all starts hereโ€”๐Ÿ’Ÿ#MAF #mentalawarenessfoundation #MAFwalk #selflove #speakup #support #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention #seekhelp #taketime #findyourunwind #live #learn #love #QMHW ...

We must normalise conversations about mental health, PROVIDE SUPPORT to those who are struggling with mental illnesses and anxiety disorders, and PRACTICE EMPATHY.
