There are lyrics from the song Carried Me With You that say:
You’re the soul who understands
The scars that made me who I am
“The scars that made me who I am” are fitting lyrics for people dealing with Mental Health issues. Many people who struggle with anxiety, depression, past trauma, have scars from life that made them who they are today. What they need is a soul who understands not stigma.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. The question really is whether we are willing to be a soul that understands and not judge.
If we stop to think about it, the brain is a physical part of the body. Therefore it is possible for there to be a physiological cause of mental health issues. More and more research is coming out showing that past trauma can affect the brain.
Let’s follow the example of Jesus who is our Sympathetic High Priest. Jesus said in Matthew 11:
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Jesus wants to give rest for those who suffer. What is our response?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
