Addiction & Mental Illness in the Pagan Community

So many today struggle with demons, addictions, mental illnesses due to stress, food, being overwhelmed, or even genetics. 

Many of those suffering, or living with, however you come to see it, turn to the Pagan community because of our acceptance of all for who they are. It is true, Pagans are an accepting bunch of folk with little expectations except for bettering yourself and accepting responsibility for your own actions. Even though, most Pagans are this accepting, and the Path of the Goddess is filled with enlightenment, there is also that last statement many tend to forget, "accepting responsibility for your own actions".

"I'm fine, really"

I'm fine, really
When you're down, and thinking everything just sucks, it's hard to find out what got you down in the first place. You start replaying things over and over again in your mind and you just can't seem to find the right reason. You just wake up one day, completely defeated, feeling worthless and you find yourself questioning every action you make, every word you speak, all the way down to wondering if you laughed at the right time during a joke.

It sucks when you have those days, and believe me, everyone has those days don't sit there telling yourself you don't. All you're doing is hiding how you feel and that's just not good for anyone...ever.
