Hey guys! Welcome back. Today I wanted to do something a little more laid back and casual. Mental health is something I strongly advocate for because as our lives get busy, our mental health is sometimes put on the back burner. So I decided to become more open with my mental health and how I am doing in my life. Many of you know that I have struggled with depression and anxiety for most of my life. So I always try to be open and talk through the things I am going through to hopefully inspire others.
My life has been crazy this past month. From moving back home, starting new chapters in my life, and hopefully seeing where things take me, I have been an anxious mess. But I have learned to cope with the things that I have gone through and get it all sorted out. The past month has not been easy and I know the next few may not be much better. I know there will be ups and downs and that things will be difficult at time.
But the more I go through this journey and learn to recognize it for what it is, the more I know that things are going to be okay. I have things put in place to help me cope with what I know is coming. I know there are things I need to do in order to put my anxiety at bay and move forward with strength in my heart. I need to remember that not everyday is good, but that doesn’t mean I have a bad life.
I feel as though my mental health has been better now that I am learning to take care of it and keep myself from traveling down those dark places. It helps me to know that everything is going to be okay and nothing is nearly as bad as it seems. Now that I am able to see what my triggers are and how things affect me, I am much better at taking care of things and being kind to myself.
It’s hard to know how to open up completely about my mental health and the things I go through on a daily basis. I don’t often know exactly how I feel or why. I’m sad and anxious for really no reason. It’s frustrating because I have everything in the world that I need to be happy so I really don’t know why I feel so off. The reason I am opening up so much is because I think it is an extremely important thing to talk about. I often get comments and messages about mental health and asking me how I’m doing. I see other people talk about what they are going through. I realize just how common mental health issues are and that we all go through something. And even though it is so common, it’s not something people like to talk about so most people feel like they are the only ones or that something is wrong with them. So if you are going through similar things, please know that you are not alone. Don’t be afraid to talk about these things and seek help if needed.
