This month's quote is by an anonymous romantic





Mental health and romance

Anxiety and depression are sneaky. They crawl into every aspect of your life and block your ability to be your true self. This is especially true of your relationships.

Unfortunately, many people are hesitant to share their mental health experiences with that special someone. It's no surprise to learn that:

-22 percent of individuals who start a new relationship wait about six months before opening up to their partner about mental health issues.

-48 percent of men and 26 percent of women never disclose mental health issues to their partners.

Communication is key to a healthy and successful relationship. Take steps to discuss mental health with your partner. This article can help with that.

This video may provide additional insight.

My take on Valentine's Day...


Well, it's February, and that means Valentine's Day. The day when lovers express their love and devotion to one another. If you're not in a relationship, it can also be an especially hard time.

Here are my thoughts on the matter.

Roses, candy, and romantic dinners are great.

But remember that those things are not a measure of your self-worth. Having anxiety or depression doesn't mean you're not worthy or undeserving of love.

Fall in love with yourself.
