In this episode, Adam and Jon discuss: It’s okay to not be okay Pivoting by being vulnerable How social media changes our perception Helping your child with depression How to fight depression

Key Takeaways:

  • It’s okay to not be okay.
  • Your feelings are valid, so don’t be afraid to express them.
  • It is difficult to open up, but once you do, those scars gradually dissolve and heal faster.
  • Do not be afraid to show your vulnerability. Being open about your fears and anxieties does not make you weak; rather, it is a characteristic of courageous people, and by being vulnerable, you encourage others to trust you and do the same.
  • No one’s life is perfect.

Tell your kids that social media is not real life, so don’t let others’ social media feeds make them feel inferior or that someone else’s life is better than theirs. Emotional support is the most important thing a child needs when dealing with depression. So do your best to stay present and make them feel that their feelings or what they’re going through are valid, and that they’re not alone. Try to be as active and social as possible. Do physical activities, even if they are simple, as long as you are sweating. Also, don’t be afraid to seek help if everything gets too overwhelming.

“Life is not about perfection. In fact, It think it’s the imperfection that makes us who we are.” —  Jon Giganti
