@princesskaryllebagadomondon As people with lived experience, the idea of stigma is often twofold. First, there is social stigma, which is outside of us, and refers to the way people react or respond to us. Second, there is self stigma, which is our own internal reaction or response to ourselves and the conditions we might have.

There probably isn't an easy solution to resolving stigma, but one thing we can do is to reach within ourselves and rewrite some of the stories we tell ourselves. We can't control the way people behave towards us, which can be quite hurtful, but we can control the way we see ourselves and our sense of worth. Sending strength your way!
