Don't you just get tired of all the lies?

Updated: Oct 22, 2020

I talk a lot on here about being open and honest about my mental health and how it has led me to where I am today.

I don't for one second want anyone to believe I have it all figured out or I am living the dream these days.

Life is hard.

Running a business is hard without all the extra baggage I have to drag along at the same time.

I get scared a lot.

I overthink things a lot.

I have days when I can't drag my arse to the shower because I'm just going to get dirty again.

This is my reality.

It is different to everyone else's.

But today and every day are an opportunity to share my story and all of its hard fought lessons with others.

To highlight the mistakes and the faulty thinking that made me keep everything to myself because the shame was to great to admit to anyone.

The one thing I tell anyone who is struggling with mental health problems is to stop lying to yourself.

What's your one piece of advice you wish someone had given you.

So the last post was about listening to your team about what causes them stress.

Now you know what the stress triggers are you can decide whether you want to do anything about it.

To do that you need more information.

How many people are affected?

How much is the problem affecting the individuals?

What knock on effects are there?

What can you fix (immediately, soon, long term or never)?
