“My Mental Health Philosophy”
I believe passionately that each person was created for a purpose. Therefore, each person is deserving of love, respect and dignity. We are all healthier, stronger people when we can find and live out the purpose for which we were created. However, doing so means identifying negative thought patterns, understanding where they come from, and working to change them. Each of us have the tools at our disposal to do so. I hope that the information provided here at BetterHelp will guide readers in overcoming harmful thought patterns and claiming the life of joy that they deserve.
