Nice to meet you!

Welcome to the Compassionate Love blog!

It has been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and a story is worth a thousand pictures. The focus of this blog is to draw a word picture of what love displayed with compassion looks like.

In the middle of struggles with mental illness, addiction, and abuse, you and I can find self-compassion and patience for recovery.  In this blog I will attempt to pass on what I am still learning, and how to find those supports who can actually be there for us.

Stigma (false information) and not knowing how to support an emotionally hurting loved one, friend, or co-worker are primary reasons many people do not try.  Those who face addiction and abuse often find others do not understand.

If you or someone you love lives with depression, another mental illness, addiction, or abuse,  the Compassionate Love Blog is one source of insight and information. In no way should this website be considered a replacement for professional treatment. I am not a doctor or licensed counselor. I write from the viewpoint of personal experience and research. 

Going without treatment, or relying on self-medication are two ways to remain stuck. Untreated Major Depression will most likely return worse and more frequently as you age. Addiction progresses. Abuse gets worse.

Welcome!
