You might be navigating a lot of big changes: Finishing high school, pursuing post-secondary education, leaving home, and more. Some of these changes are exciting, and some may be a bit scary or overwhelming. Do not worry, we are in this together!
Any change can be stressful, and stress can have a big impact on your mood. It is normal to feel sad or low from time to time but feeling low or sad most of time may be a sign that you need extra support. You can get support from Cipla 24hr Mental Health Helpline 0800 456 789 and we offer reading material on mental wellness for free at Van Schaik stores.
Atticus once described depression as “being colour-blind and constantly told how colourful the world is.” The moment you do not see that bright cheer of colour and happiness when everything is becoming too much just visit wanatalkaboutit.com just in case you wanna be heard.
It is not all gloom and doom. Take little pleasure of joy knowing that you are not where you were 5 years ago, a week ago or just yesterday. You are growing and progressing with each day that comes. It is the little things that count, the fact that you were able to wake up this morning, that you are able to get an education even through this tumultuous time.
It is all up to us to make the best of each day! So, if you lost your motivation to study, to pursue the fun things that make you excited, things that you are passionate about, confused about your feelings and can’t explain how you feel? Remember we got your back!
