Mental health issues are not always obvious

I came across this little gem recently and it got me thinking about the world of therapy and how being a therapist gives me an amazing insight into other people's lives. I see it as a priveledge to walk alongside others on what can be a difficult journey of self awareness and discovery. That people trust me with their fears and hopes, and struggle to overcome what are difficult issues for them is sometimes awe inspiring.  I contantly marvel at their bravery in the face of adversity and the growth and healing of the human spirit.  

The following quote really struck a chord with me and inspires empathy and understanding in a critical and judgemental world -  

"You can't begin to imagine what people are going through in their lives -  so just be nice. It's that simple."
