…has selected my “Christmas Pain” piece to be published.
The Mighty is a website that shares stories and videos from people struggling with mental health issues and disabilities. They are partners with The Huffington Post and Yahoo so stories have the opportunity to be published there as well. It has over 1 Million users and is growing by the day. I found it about a year ago and when I get it in my email feed and an article speaks to me I don’t feel like I’m doing battle alone. It’s important. It is what I was trying to do with The Safe Nest, a blog I created that discuss personal stories on mental health.
The Mighty has become important to me because I can see the faces of people – real people – out there struggling just like me and there is comfort in that connection.
I edited and added to my piece and they selected and publish it. You can view it here (there is a stock image at the top and my title was changed).
Why is it this important to me? Because of the deep longing to be known. We all have it. This is one step closer.
Thank you, Mighty Team.
