Are You Really OK?

“It’s easy to dream of where we want to be, but what sets health people apart from unhealthy people comes down to the steps they make to move toward change.” Debra Fileta from @truelovedates in her new book “Are You Really Ok?”

I want to be careful with this topic because I feel like modern Christian culture tells us things about therapy, medication, and mental health that are at best kinda wrong but at worst can lead to damaging results.

I’ve heard all of phrases relating to depression and anxiety and usually they are short and vapid and followed by an out of context verse. Therapy, therapists, and medications are all totally valid ways to deal with mental health. 

I was sent over an advanced copy of this book because Debra is an awesome person and I’m a fan of her work. This book is super insightful if at times hard to read because there is a lot of transparency in here. This is a very personal story and God’s love is all over it. I appreciate the frank tone but also the concrete steps and tactics outlined to deal with a multitude of issues. I’ll be picking it up on kindle because I couldn’t highlight the pdf I have. First world problems and all. 🤷‍♂️

I’ve been highly influenced by her work – this isn’t just a book for those struggling; it’s for all of us. It’s available today on Amazon!
