I hear you and I feel you.
Life's been hard for all of us, so I don't blame any of us if our Mental Health has been shaky as of lately. However, that doesn't mean we're all hopeless cases wasting our time on this wonderful planet.
Find out why as Jonah, a Mental Health advocate and fellow podcaster, stops by to share with me her secrets and advice on how to stay positive and hopeful, especially when the light goes out, the music starts fading, and the tunnel gets dimmer.
You are loved, and I love you all.
