Everyone Is Going Through Something
Kevin love tweeted "I've never been comfortable sharing much about myself. I thought about mental health as someone else's problem. I've realized I needed to change that."
In a long written article, Kevin Love shared all of his past experiences, about the "playbook" he learned as a child of how to be a man, "Be strong. Don’t talk about your feelings. Get through it on your own." And how those rules stuck with him as an adult with his battle with mental health.
"So for 29 years, I thought about mental health as someone else’s problem. Sure, I knew on some level that some people benefited from asking for help or opening up. I just never thought it was for me. To me, it was form of weakness that could derail my success in sports or make me seem weird or different."
Thank you Kevin Love for having the courage to speak about your battle with depression for The Players' Tribune.
