God loves you
so that you can change.
It is the inherent experience
of love that becomes
the engine of change.

God communes with and uses people not because they are perfect and antiseptically clean in life but because they have painfully discovered the way of grace. Gordon MacDonald

Mental health is
having a ruthlessly honest
understanding of yourself.
'This is me,
and this is where
I am vulnerable'


Do you really know your vulnerable spots? Your blind spots?

Mental health is ... recognising with gratitude that we need others, both seen and unseen, to help rebuild our lives.

Mental Health is ... knowing that
'Even when the way goes through
Death Valley',
you are not alone.

I was there, walked through it, felt desperate and alone - walked until I believed to my strengtht anymore.
Still kept on walking (better described with crawling).
Didn't want to give up.
Others found ways, happinesses, partnerships, companions.
Gave up looking for ... whatever ... just walked/crawled forward at last.
Didn't want to give up.
And finally I see a light at the end of the tunnel .... maybe all that effort was worth it-
I REALLY DO HOPE SO
