There are rising concerns with the well being of our young people yet we allow stigma to call the shots.
So many why’s on my mind?
Why would you choose your community over your child’s well being?
Why care what others think when you need to safeguard your young person’s purpose?
Every individual is on planet earth for a purpose and if something is standing in the way, you speak up, fight it and get help!
Many psychological factors contribute to mental ill-health in our young people, such as trauma in childhood, early losses in life, neglect, detachment and exposure to the brokenness of parents, guardians or foster carers.
You don’t necessarily have control over it all. What one child perceives as pressure, another perceives as just another event in life. This is based on the way they are wired or previous life events. However you can do is love, care, pray, be present in their lives and not contribute to the pressure.
A lot of people will live more fulfilled lives if we care from the very beginning.
So I ask you today, what are you guilty of?
Understanding the essence of mental wellness?
Recognising the powerhouse of your child?
Being absent in your child’s life?
Retracting into yourself and not able to give to your child?
Keeping quiet about your own struggles and projecting it on your child?
Not managing your emotions and increase their pressure?
Let us all come together and support the well being our young people so they can stand against the pressures and brokenness around them. ”Above all ( all that life presents) guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”
