Going through a mental breakdown can be extremely frightening, not only for you but for the people around you.
It can also be an extremely positive process.
The breakdown can be a complete deconstruction of the person you have been conditioned to become, the person you know as yourself and it can strip you back to being empty and not having a clue about who you are anymore.
Although this sounds scary, once you reach this place of emptiness you can start the reconstruction. This is where you can reconnect to your inner being and to the person you are at the core of your self, not the person you have been molded into through the conditioning of your life.
You can start to really feel who you are at the depth of your being and although it is a very delicate process you can start to make the right decisions on how you would like your life to be. You can start living from your own center and from your soul.
This is transformational!
To understand this process and allow it to unfold and re build will help you let go of the fear that surrounds it.
