Should I keep it to myself?

To anyone that reads this and suffers from any type of mental illness like myself:

Should I publicize that I have mental illness on my social media or should I just keep it to myself?

I know that I write all my thoughts and feelings on this blog. But family and friends don’t know that this blog exists.

Some friends and some family know my situation but don’t neccesarily understand what I’m going through.

But it’s Mental Health Awareness Month.

& I want people to know about it. But I feel like I need to open up about my own mental health if I’m going to post something about it.

I’m just afraid that people won’t truly understand when I post it.

Because in real life, people don’t understand it. But at the same time, people need to be aware of mental health.

I don’t know.

Should I?

 

thanks.

  1. I understand that this is a very tricky place to be in. Most of my friends and family are not aware that my blog exists either. I am always very careful about who I share the darker side of my life with because I’m never 100% positive about how people are going to react when they realize that I suffer with a mental illness.
