You are fucking important!

Hey everyone,

Hope everyone is feeling ok and if you’re not, well that is ok too as you’re only human. Well, guess who has had a positive start to this week… Yes, it is I!
I am just as shocked as you are as I had already conceded I was the human version of Daria. I know I shouldn’t moan that I have had a positive day but understand it just feels weird to me. When I spend a lot of my time under a dark cloud or I have the bitch of anxiety rooming with my mind, it is a strange feeling to have such positive thoughts with only a few negative. Am I the only one who feels like this? Is this the reason why I feel so uncomfortable around really positive people? I thought it was just because I was a natural grumpy cow!
I am serious though, overly positive people really make me nervous and I am not judging as good for them for being like that, but it just sets my nerves on high and I start planning an escape route if I am around them too long.
Anyway, enough of my weirdness, I feel like I am now firmly on the right track with tackling my food issues, I have stopped hiding and not only am I helping myself I have asked for help. This definitely deserves a self-high-five and who knows maybe one day I will be able to look in the mirror and smile at the person looking back.

Today’s tips of the day –

You are fucking important!

Over the last month or so I have really made sure to make time for self-care even when I am feeling okay. Making the time for my self-care really has had a massive impact on my life. Not only have I learned a lot more about my triggers and my mood cycle’s, I have also learned a lot more about me. Without giving ourselves the times to take care of our mental wellbeing we may always feel weird when feeling positive.
You can’t run from a storm but making sure you are doing some self-care is like putting an umbrella up in the storm, you are still in the storm but you have some protection.
Many of us can feel a huge amount of guilt and shame when it comes to self-care as it can interfere with our day-to-day life but we can’t listen to those negative thoughts as we are fucking important. Think about it taking a day or two off work for self-care is better than pushing them feelings aside and running the risk of taking longer off sick in the future.
Recovery starts with you and you alone.

Take care all,

Vixxy Rose

  1. It weird, but depression feels comfortable. It’s all I knew for so long, if I don’t let it completely consume me I feel like I betraying myself. And I shouldn’t feel like that, but I do. And I know I’m not the only one who feels this way.

    Yes, you deserve that self high five! But you also deserve a normal high five, so let me be the one to high five you 😃 high five!
