Becoming Mentally Healthy by Paula Sweet at Absolute Mind

Hello, it's Paula Sweet here from Your Absolute Mind, the podcast where we dig deep into all things mental health, with a particular focus on the journey towards mental wellness.

In this episode, I take a detailed look at the language we use when we talk about mental health. I delve into the subtle but significant difference between saying "I feel anxious" and "I have anxiety". While these phrases might seem similar, they paint vastly different pictures of our mental health landscape.

Throughout this conversation, I break down these two statements and explore how they can impact not only our personal perception of our mental health but also how others might understand us. As I guide you through this discussion, we examine how such linguistic subtleties might shape our experiences and even influence our relationship with our mental health.

The discussion isn't limited to anxiety. I extend the conversation to include conditions like depression, ADHD, and other mental health disorders. Together, we consider how saying "I feel..." rather than "I have..." or "I am..." can serve as a reminder that our current state is changeable and not a permanent fixture of our identities.

Finally, I invite you to reflect on the words you use when talking about your mental health and how small changes in language can help shape our reality in a more positive and empowering way.

Join me as we explore these themes and together use language to promote a healthier conversation around mental health.
