    Journey to Mental Health: Finding Peace After Trauma

    Journey to Mental Health: Finding Peace After Trauma

    ```htmlHey, and good morning to another episode of the Knucklehead Chronicles podcast. It is your man, Terry. It has been a minute since I've done one of these. And, you know, I'm going to try to dive into the mental health portion of this. I know I've gone through a lot and my mental health has gone up and down. And be that this month is minority mental health month. So I really want to get into that and just talk about some things that I've gone through.Welcome to another episode of the Knucklehead Chronicles podcast. This podcast was designed to let you know that you aren't the only one that took forever to get it together. So the rabbit hole that you have stumbled down will hopefully help you understand that just when you think it's over, it's only the beginning. Just because you were dealt a bad hand doesn't mean you have to keep it. Welcome to the Knucklehead Chronicles podcast.All right, I'm back, man. Yo, happy July. Man, this year is going by extremely fast. Like, if you guys have noticed, January 1st came in, man. Now we're looking down the barrel of August, man. Jesus Christ, kids back in school here next month. Man, so much stuff is going on. But I am going to get into a little bit of my mental health update. A lot of things have happened. And just to give you guys who haven't listened to this podcast a little bit of a recap. Went through a divorce in July. Or not. But January, first of the year. And it was tough. It was tough on a brother who, you know, made some bad choices. But still has a good heart.So now, here in July. A lot of things have changed. I had to change my mentality and the way I moved and the way I did things. And I had to put some folks in my rear view. Sometimes putting people in your rear view is the hardest thing to do, but it's the most necessary thing to do. Because you have to, you know, I had to get to a place where I had to protect my peace. Because nobody's going to protect your peace, but you. Ain't nobody going to do it for you. You got to pick your own beat.And so I woke up one morning and like I said, those of you who have been listening know that I dealt with some, you know, depression and, you know, some suicidal thoughts. And I had to text 988 a couple of times. And those of you listening, if you don't know what 988 is, that's the suicide prevention hotline. And if you're going through anything and need somebody to talk to, you can definitely, you know, it used to be back in the day, you used to have to call them. But now they have it to where you can text them and you can text the number at 988 and you can get someone on the line that will walk you through, you know, talk you through things. And they'll even call the police for you if need be. So I suggest that. It helped me out of a couple of bouts of depression that I had. And I had some very, very, very dark thoughts and I had to, you know, text that number to get some help.But, you know, a couple months removed from that, you know, now I just work. I work to keep my mind up with a lot of things. I do try to go out and, you know, put my face out there and just kind of get that outside interaction. And, again, everything that I'm going to say today is for those who are battling right now. Because the problem that we have is that we don't want to help other people. Excuse me, we don't want to tell our story. We don't want to, you know, because we feel like we don't do it out of fear of rejection or fear of judgment from people.And for me, it doesn't matter because I have a story to tell. Now, whether you judge me, laugh at me, whatever it is that you feel about me, you know you can kind of you know you can have it you know I'm saying because it's still my at the end of the day it's still my story and it's still your story and despite whether or not you believe, that what your story that your story can help somebody it absolutely can it absolutely can, I've gotten dms and inboxes from people that said you know your la
