A campaign title IDONTMIND was launched yesterday as a part of Mental Health Awareness Week. Their website reads “Our mission to defeat the stigma surrounding mental illness starts with a simple phrase: IDONTMIND.
By saying IDONTMIND, you can help break down the barrier of stigma and bring hope to those who are struggling and afraid to speak up. Together, we can generate positive messaging and find creative ways of reaching those who need encouragement.”
I teach meditation in a city with a high number of people without homes. I drive these human beings almost every day. On the way home tonight I noticed a couple on the side of the road who were obviously without a home. I didn’t them on my way to class. They must have been there but I was not. I was somewhere else off in my mind.
My passion is helping people take the risk of staying true to who they are as well as bringing their unique gifts out into the world. I believe so strongly in living authentically because it has been the heart of my own transformation process.
