In further support of Mental Health Awareness Week, I found a terrific article that is worth anyone's time to read:
The article was written by professional basketball player Kevin Love. You can read more about Kevin and his background here. For the record, Kevin is not some minor player in NBA who has nothing better to do than write articles while he sits on the bench; rather he is a 5 time NBA All-Star. The fact that he is using his notoriety to spread the word about an important, but uncomfortable, subject is commendable.
Two quotes that stuck out for me:
"It really makes you think about how we are all walking around with experiences and struggles — all kinds of things — and we sometimes think we’re the only ones going through them. The reality is that we probably have a lot in common with what our friends and colleagues and neighbors are dealing with."
"I’m trying to face the uncomfortable stuff in life while also enjoying, and being grateful for, the good stuff. I’m trying to embrace it all, the good, bad and ugly."
