Mandana Karimi took to Instagram to share her phase of anxiety and wrote that not so long ago she was going through a very difficult phase of her life. She said that she has been through a lot of trauma as coming from Iran she had been through a lot of struggle for herself to find her space and adjust to new places. Because of all this, her anxiety has always been high. She said that amidst all this she has tried to be positive and has support from her family. She wrote, “Conquering your mind and your thoughts is one smallest yet biggest battles we face today. It’s very easy to get lost in the negativity, at the end of the day we all have to face our demons. One of the saddest things today is the stigma attached to mental illness or mental health, people don’t treat it the same way as they would a physical injury (sic).

She believes you don’t have to stay low even if you hit rock bottom. She spoke to the ones who are struggling with mental health saying they’re not Alone and it’s ok to take professional help. She urged them to share with anyone they trust office colleagues, their parent or your close friend as its the best thing you can do.

Not so long ago I was going through a difficult phase of my life. I’ve been through a lot of trauma, coming from Iran, it’s been a struggle for me to find my space, adjust to new places, a new language and finding work. All of that has always kept my Anxiety high. But I’ve always tried to be positive and got help from family and professionals whenever i felt the need. Conquering your mind and your thoughts is one smallest yet biggest battles we face today. It’s very easy to get lost in the negativity, at the end of the day we all have to face our demons. One of the saddest things today is the stigma attached to mental illness or mental health, people don’t treat it the same way as they would a physical injury. Just because you hit rock bottom, doesn’t mean you have to stay there. For anyone who’s struggling with it, know this, you are not Alone, getting help from professionals is absolutely fine, one of the best thing you can do is to share it with someone you trust, it can be your office colleague, your parent or your close friend, you don’t have to go through it alone. Keep fighting! P.S. I know am late, but this was something important for me to share with you guys. #worldsmentalhealthday #mentalhealth #awareness
