While mental illness is prevalent, so is the number of people who never seek treatment for it.

It is often a harsh truth that people who need pampering are the ones that unapologetically carry the brunt of a burden. They usually put the needs of others above their own and they are ready to endure until they are on their knees. While this is honorable, it is also very unhealthy.
