We usually only worry about our mental health during distressing events, and don't take into consideration the many daily events that empty our mental health wallet, often without us realizing it.

Our mental image

Our self-image help determine how we react to the daily ups and downs of life. If we think of ourselves as valued, other people will also notice that quality.
