Who am I?
The common belief is the warrior is a big, strong, mentally and physically tough individual who is able to handle things on their own without help. This is not the case at all. A warrior centres themselves around their community. Warrior cultures and warrior groups evolved out of love. They emerged and evolved into society for the protection of their communities. The warriors themselves work together as a team to achieve their mission. The strength and courage is not their own, but borrowed. It is borrowed from the others around them. A soldier who has fallen in battle wouldn't hesitate to reach for a comrade for help but when it comes to mental health there is a fear of reaching out. THis is what we want to focus on and change.
"Don’t be ashamed to need help. Like a soldier storming a wall, you have a mission to accomplish. And if you’ve been wounded and you need a comrade to pull you up? So what?"
IT IS OK TO SUFFER! It is ok for things to be hard and to be challenging! Those trying times in our lives both physically and mentally are when the growth happens.
