A Product Of Wisdom
Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems (depression, anxiety, etc), your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. It could feel like tunnel vision, where you only see the B&W moments instead of full color, like the world is meant to be viewed. There is a whole community out there that goes through mental health issues “You’re not alone”. We need to stick together and support each other through moments where we might feel like its only us going through this.
In life you experience a series of moments, these moments range from good moments to not so good moments. But all of these moments mean something in some way, they are meant to be experienced, even the darkest of moments. Through this you learn who you really are and what you are truly capable of. Your true strength finds a way to shine through when you least expect it to and you become stronger than you ever imagined. When you are going through this keep that in mind, maybe it will ease the process and slowly help you get out of that darkness.
The meaning of this post is to bring awareness to mental health and brands like Philosophy which go above and beyond to raise awareness for a cause like mental health. This brand represents hope, empowerment, strength and they touch hearts to heal minds. We all know and love the brand - but did you know that Philosophy donates 1% of all USA net product sales to support community-based mental health efforts. Philosophy is more than just a beauty brand. It gives individuals hope and helps them realize that they are not in it alone. Philosophy is the first company to place a deep focus on this important cause and the first major beauty company to make a brand-wide commitment to dedicate 1% of its sales to the cause.
