"tears of joy"
When was the last time you felt joy? Do you know that some of us feel uncomfortable when we experience joy? Being able to experience and express joy can be difficult for people experiencing mental health issues.
Finding joy during mental health crisis can be challenging, but it’s important to remember that it’s okay to prioritize your own happiness. Some strategies that may help include practicing self-care, seeking support from loved ones or a therapist, engaging in activities that bring you pleasure, and focusing on gratitude and positive thinking. Remember to take things one day at a time and be gentle with yourself as you navigate your mental health journey.
