Episode 3

Ep 3: You Don't Need to Be Perfect

Last week, I recorded an episode of Mental Health and Me while under what I can only call "not the best circumstances". While I could have left the episode up, I really wasn't happy with it, as you'll found out in this new episode. I'll still share the topic of the previous episode three, probably in next week's show.

Today, though, while I share what happened last week, I want to talk about why you don't need to be perfect. Why whatever you do, you should be proud of, because you actually had the courage to do it.

It's okay to do things over. It's okay to not settle for things the first time you do them. Because we're not perfect, and that means we're allowed to do things over. And over. And over again. Allow yourself to breathe, and simply try again until you feel comfortable and confident with your own results.

For more resources, please visit the Mental Health and Me website, where you'll receive nothing but a warm welcome, support, love, and reassurance.

You can also connect with me on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.

Let's keep the conversation going.

Welcome to Mental Health and Me, a safe place for people who suffer from mental illness, who want to learn to cope with it, to control it, and eventually overcome it.

My name is Jaclyn Brown and I am not a therapist. I am a mental health and wellness advocate and my experience comes from over 20 years of battling both depression and anxiety.

I have learned to manage my illness, and I want to help you manage yours as well.

If you’re looking for ways to fight and beat anxiety or depression, this is the place for you. If you’re looking to support someone with mental illness, this is the place for you.

We don’t have to struggle alone. We are in this together. Break the stigma surrounding mental health. Let’s talk about it.

I’m father to two amazing children who make me laugh, cry, hope, fear, anticipate, and cherish every single day. I’m husband to an awesome wife who supports me in more ways than she can ever know, and who I could never repay if I lived a thousand years.

When not podcasting, you can find me in the Muskoka region of Ontario, Canada, living a quiet life surrounded by trees, lakes, and wildlife, taking inspiration from the natural beauty that surrounds us.
