It was pointed out to me that we are more than our mental health conditions, so, don’t let your illness define you.
We in the services go from fear to courage. If we didn’t the job would never get done. However, we need to get better at saving ourselves.
Yesterday, you found yourself too heavy to get on with the day. Well, yesterday’s gone so let today be your day.
The fire service and I suspect it’s true of all emergency services, it’s both really easy to both love and loath, all at the same time.
When in a depressed state of mind, it’s even more imperative that we take stalk of all that we can extract gratitude from.
