I felt this episode was necessary after the events which led to Simone Biles, U.S. gymnast, withdrawing from the competition due to her mental health. Admitting that you are not OK is not easy. She was able to admit she was not OK and that her mind was not allowing her to focus the way she needed too to safely continue competing in the event, and she did this in front of the world. So powerful! She was able to conjure up the strength to put herself and her mental health above all else at that moment.
We have to make our mental health a priority...PERIOD. It Is OK To Not Be OK. It Is OK To Admit You Are Not OK. It Is OK To Ask For Help. You matter and you are worth all of the effort!
