One of the biggest things we all hold ourselves accountable for is our relationship with ourselves. We are all constantly being bombarded with messages that tell us that if we aren’t in a loving relationship by the time we reach a certain age, things are going to be way, way downhill for us (and not in a good way). This is one of the most important things to remember and not just because it’s the only thing we all have control over.
This may seem weird, but the relationship between a long-term relationship and our mental health is very important. According to a recent study from Harvard School of Public Health, the more people with a bad mental health history, the higher the likelihood that we will experience a mental health issue. This is important not just because there is some sort of physical cause for this, but because people with mental health issues often have lower rates of sexual activity and suicide.
Even though I’m no expert on this, I think that having a bad mental health history is one of the reasons that a lot of people don’t have a lot of long term relationships. A study by the National University of Singapore shows that people who have had a previous mental health issue are more likely to have a serious mental health issue in the future.
In other words, if you’ve had a mental health issue in the past, and you’re in a long-term relationship with someone who has one, it’s not a surprise that you’re not seeing eye to eye on a lot of issues.
I have a friend who is in a toxic relationship, and she said if anyone has a mental health issue, and theyve made it through to a long-term relationship with someone, they are just more comfortable with problems. If youve had a mental health issue in the past, and youve made it through to a long-term relationship with someone, youre just more comfortable with problems.
She’s absolutely right. Youve only seen the surface of the issues in a long-term relationship. If youve had a mental health issue in the past, and youve made it through to a long-term relationship with someone, youre just more comfortable with problems. If youve had a mental health issue in the past, and youve made it through to a long-term relationship with someone, youre just more comfortable with problems.
I know this is going to come off as a very serious statement, but this is a very important thing to understand about mental illnesses. If youve had a mental health issue in the past, and youve made it through to a long-term relationship with someone, you just generally feel more comfortable with the problems. This is because you know your partner will accept them and you know they’ll be there to help you.
This is a point often missed, but it is important that people who have mental illnesses feel understood. We have a tendency to think that people with mental illnesses are people who are more difficult to deal with than anyone else. But, in fact, theyre more difficult to deal with because we forget that they have mental health issues and then we have to deal with our own mental health issues. I think this is another example of how we have a very hard time accepting the mental health issues of others.
Like most people who have mental health issues, I was told that I had an “episode” years ago that I have trouble remembering. I was diagnosed with a mild form of bipolar disorder several years ago. I have never had any psychotic episodes or even any major depressive episodes for that matter during my lifetime.
So why is it so hard for people to accept that mental health issues exist? I think it’s because people tend to either think that they have to “act” to be okay or have to be “like” someone else to be okay. I don’t think the latter is helpful, but in this case I think it is because for too many of us, the people around us are the ones who are in charge of managing our mental health.
