There is a great article about LADY GAGA in the Summer 2016 issue of “Esperanza.” Lady Gaga encourages those of us managing mental health challenges to embrace our creativity and imagination in overcoming difficult times. Lady Gaga is one of the 100 most influential people in the world and her “Born This Way Foundation” promotes self-acceptance and debunks the stigma associated with mental illness.
Lady Gaga said, “no matter how much success you have, no matter how many people accept you to your face, the person that really needs to accept you is you.” “Lady Gaga states, I invented myself as an expression of my pain and created someone I thought was stronger than me, but nothing can fix how I was genetically made.” I am grateful for Lady Gaga’s contribution in fighting the stigma associated with mental illness and encouraging those of us managing our mental health challenges to use our creativity and imagination on our wellness journey.
