Hope everyone is feeling ok and if you’re not, well that is ok too as you’re only human. I am still feeling a bit under the weather but powering through it, as the weekend is around the corner and I got some things to do that are out of my comfort zone that I am determined to follow through with.
I really feel like a phoenix rising out of the ashes right now, I am feeling more comfortable with this calm part of me as days go by, I no longer feel like a stranger to myself. I have started to take steps in taking back my life again from my mental illness and I am getting stronger by the day I can feel it. So even though a storm will come my way again I am no longer afraid to get wet.
So this brings me to my tip of the day –
You are going to get wet when it is raining!
Have you noticed even with you have an umbrella there is still a part of you that gets wet whether it is your feet or face there is always a part. no matter how prepared we think we are when a storm comes our way there we will always get wet and that is ok. Because that storm will soon pass and that part will soon dry off.
With any type of mental illness, there will always be some damage from a storm but that damage is not always permanent, even if at the time it feels like it will be it. I know this because I have been there, where I thought that was it I am destined to be a bitter human being who causes nothing but misery to others and myself and I will always be unlovable. But you know what that part of me that was soaked by the rain is drying up and I don’t think that right now. I have not done a total 360 but maybe 180, instead of thinking I am unlovable I now think maybe I am not so unlovable.
We can’t expect not to get wet in the rain but maybe one day we can learn to dance in the rain knowing that we will eventually be dry again.
Take care all
