Having Hard Conversations

Having Hard Conversations

The conversation on mental illness and mental health is opening up on a worldwide platform. Until recent years, mental illness and mental health have remained closed-door conversations due to stigma, stereotypes, and the immense amount of shame which has been associated with mental illness. Talking about mental illness is hard because describing what can feel like indescribable feelings is also hard. However, having hard conversations about mental illness, addiction, treatment, and recovery, are absolutely essential for helping someone find the growth they need in their life. Likewise, we need to have hard conversations to grow as a society. The more difficult conversations we have, the less separation we experience. Having hard conversations breaks down the barrier which convinces us that we are different from one another. Mental illness causes us to feel separated, isolated, alone, and different- therefore, worthless. Having hard conversations lets us and those talking with us know that our lives, that is, everyone’s lives, are worth talking about- struggles with mental illness and all. Our pain is worth recognizing, our recovery is worth caring about, and our struggles are worth sharing. Who we are, what we’ve been through, and where we’re going in our lives are all worth having the hard conversation about because we are worth being acknowledged, we are worth being seen, and we are worth being known.

Getting to know our family members and friends on this deeply personal and vulnerable level is difficult when we are consumed by the details of treatment and recovery. Hired Power serves families for precisely this reason. The magic of recovery is in the hard conversations, the deep conversations, the personal conversations- the important conversations. Making time for those conversations is significantly harder to do when there are details to handle. Hired Power takes care of the details so you can take care of yourself, your family, and bring recovery home.

Hired Power offers recovery services designed to make your family’s journey through the recovery process as seamless as possible. Our dynamic team of experienced recovery professionals strive to bring their personal passion and professional expertise to your every need and concern.
