End the Stigma #bellletstalk

by John Paul Gomez January 25, 2017

End the Stigma #bellletstalk

I am living with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I cope with it by focusing my energies on 3 things- Family, Freemasonry, and Muaythai. I document my journey as a husband and a father with mental health issues on my Instagram page.

Today is #bellletstalk day and I am feeling obliged to share a piece of my story. Instead writing a wall of text, I'll just summarize how I feel today by borrowing words from the following. 

"Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold." -Bob Marley

"Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it." -Rumi

"We build too many walls and not enough bridges." -Isaac Newton

"I don't want to believe. I want to know." -Carl Sagan
