Mental Health Self Care Spoonie Edition Thank you Pat Rothfuss and Will Wheaton
I live in the US. Why is this important? I cannot afford mental health care. Do I need it? Fuck yes absolutely. I can play a very sane and together person. Meryl Streep has nothing on me. I am VERY good at being OK.
The point? I cannot afford therapy so I do a podcast and I watch YouTube. Pat Rothfuss did a GREAT video with Will Wheaton. Yes, that one. This is some of the best advice for mental health I have ever heard.
My favorite take away? Talk to yourself as you would to the ones you love the most in your life. Seriously practice self compassion. Write a blog post? Think of a good idea? GIVE YOURSELF A VERBAL GOLD STAR.
