I hope everyone is doing ok and if you are not remember that is ok not to be ok. Sorry everyone for the little bit of the hiatus, I have flip-flopping backward and forward with my moods, things are going on that I can’t control and really sending me through a loop. Already this feels so good getting a little bit of my chest as I feel so tightly wound right now and I don’t want to snap, I am trying to loosen the ties around me but it’s proving a little tricky. There is one thing though I know deep down I am a fighter and I am more than capable to get through this storm even if it takes me a little longer than usual.
So anyway enough about me, let’s move on to something we can all take an interest in. Today’s post is a tip of the day, as you all know I love a tip of a day.
Tip of the day – Be true to yourself.
Dealing with my mental illness I can find myself telling people around me little white lies, I’m ok, everything is fine, don’t worry about me and of course, I will go out next week with you. It is like word vomit I cannot help myself it is like I am on autopilot, smiling and nodding my way through life sometimes.
I think we all guilty of these little white lies, then we can get to a point we day it so much we can believe our own lies. we have to draw a line and be honest with ourselves if we are not ok we are not ok, if we are not comfortable with something then that’s what we need to say to ourselves at least.
Being true to yourself is the first step to getting out of the vicious cycles we can get caught up in, it is the first step to the road of recovery and also the first step in self-care.
The truth is not always easy but once you accept it the easier things will be, as lies are so much harder to maintain and take more of a toll on your mental health then the truth does. You are what is important and you deserve the truth from yourself.
Take care all
