For all humans, mental health (good or challenging) has a cost. The cost of good mental health can come in the form of making difficult decisions about happiness, joy, and/or a zest-filled life. Sometimes those decisions are easy, sometimes they are difficult, and sometimes they require the help of another or a professional. Those decisions can produce consequences that affect not only you, but your family, friends and community.
The costs of challenging mental health issues can be discomfort, irrationality, confusion, dis-ease, anger or distress, to name a few. Lack of good mental health can cost relationships, jobs, careers, education, public or personal safety. Challenging mental health issues cause personal decisions to wreak havoc in lives. Those decisions produce consequences that affect not only you, but your family, friends and community.
No matter how you perceive mental health, it does not come freely for anyone. How can it?
No one escapes the rigors of infancy and childhood where brain development, emotional connectedness, and physical safety are fragile and dependent upon a supportive environment (for parents and babies), espoused with positive genetic predispositions, and a healthy womb environment. Sometimes I think we know more about Mars than we know about the complexity of having and raising mentally healthy children who later become mentally healthy adults.
How can there be shame in seeking a mental health professional for any reason regarding one's mental health? Everyone needs a certain amount of basic counseling (the unconditional, non-judgmental, caring attention of another) in their lives. We all needed a certain amount of attention beginning the day we are born. We all gave up on getting it, and responded in many different ways.
The good news is that you can get some of that attention now. It's never too late to have what you always needed--to move on with your life in the direction you always wanted it to go.
