Welcome to Shattering Stigmas 3.0!

For me, the worst part about mental illness is when it makes you feel like you have to suffer alone (Spoiler alert: this is a lie. A LIE.).

Last year, I saw that Holly @ The Fox’s Hideaway was looking for writers for a project called Shattering Stigmas. I immediately jumped on the opportunity because it looked like fun. I’d also recently started my journey to deal with some of my mental health issues and felt really alone, so I thought this might be a way to help create some sense of community for myself. It did. It also taught me that I had a voice, that my story mattered. I am so excited to have the opportunity to help host Shattering Stigmas this year. I can’t wait to bring you personal essays and interviews over these next two weeks from some of my strongest and most amazing friends. I hope everyone will be able to come away from this event with the feeling that by openly talking about mental illness, we have contributed to destroying the stigma around it.

Please support the writers of all the posts on my blog, which are listed below. Please check out the other host’s blogs: Holly @ The Fox’s Hideaway, Shannon @ It Starts at Midnight, Inge @ Of Wonderland and Vlora @ Reviews and Cake blogs too for more posts! Taneika is also making some awesome videos on her channel Flipping Through Pages. We will be giving away six mental health reads at the end of the event, so be sure to enter in the Rafflecopter at the end of this post! I hope you’ll stick around for this awesome two weeks-we all worked super hard to bring you these heartfelt and heart wrenching stories.
