Maat E's Mental Health Message:
Loving others is a way to heal thyself. When we are in the midst of our own stress and pain life seems overwhelming and it is all about us. Little do we know that the love and attention we wish someone would show us is the same loving energy that we have to give. Directing love and care toward someone else helps us come out of our own head, our own judgments, our own resentment and own pain. The fact that we hold on to negative thoughts is part of what keeps us from healing. We can turn the negativity around by choosing to come from a place of love. Of course it is not easy. Life's greatest rewards usually come with some difficulty. Let love out today. Heal thyself.
