Mental Health Awareness Month: My Wellness Journey with Nikki Spo

What is up, Light Beams and Truthspeakers! May is mental health awareness month, and we will talk about ALL the things- the hard things, the beautiful things, and all of the things in between. As a parent, a lover, a daughter, a friend, and a soul sister, I want us all to pay attention to the people we love. Let us take the initiative to respond to their calls rather than brushing them aside. You never know what someone might be going through, and your presence could be the source of their joy. I am happy to be here and happy that you are too.

In this episode…

  • Struggling with emotional health

  • Being honest with your kids

  • Dealing with bullies at a young age

  • Our own inner wounded child

  • Self-harming

  • Seeking attention from the adults in your life

  • Sobriety

  • Healing all broken systems

  • Knowing better to do better

  • Paying attention to the calls for help

  • Taking mental health seriously


“Many psychologists will say that we must communicate with our children about the hard things. Children are smart and think independently, and if we don't help them understand the things happening in their life, they will fill in the blanks with whatever they want.”

“I think that children acting out triggers us and our own inner wounded child more than we are often ready to admit.”

“I wanted to be heard, and I wanted to be believed.”

“My attention-seeking behavior was not having my desired effect.”

“I have been depressed in my life, I have had anxiety in my life, and I have coped in a lot of healthy ways, and I have coped in a lot of unhealthy ways.”

“I have always been on a spiritual path and seeking the truth and light within me. I really got to experience that and embrace that during my sobriety. My sobriety helped most of my relationships, but not all.”

“I am glad I get to wake up every morning and try my best at life, even when life is not at its best.”
