Why you matter more than you’ll ever know

Dec 27, 2017

Life has its fair share of ups and downs. If you are struggling with depression, please hear this – it’s going to be OK! You matter and are worthy. It is OK to reach out and ask for help because no one – not one single person – has it all figured out. Everyone struggles from time to time.

One of the things that is so wonderful about you, is that you are the only you! Be proud of you who you are.

If you are struggling, reach out and ask for help. There is zero shame in that.

Everyone needs a little help some time. Reach out to a family member, friend or one of us at Healthy Futures. Just reach out because you matter!

Curiosity is the key to learning about life around you

Curiosity is truly a great thing. It is the perfect antidote to boredom. Look around you and there are things you can be curious about. If you see something that you want to know more about – great! Grab your computer or phone and research it.
