Welcome back to crazy little things!
I am a believer in timing and how certain things happen for a reason, and if I wasn’t thankful about being back in therapy before, then I am certainly thankful after this weekend. I wouldn’t have gotten through this weekend without being back at therapy. For one, I am starting to learn and understand so much about my mind after only 2 weeks and secondly, I am going to have plenty to fill my therapist in on about this weekend. I was triggered this weekend and usely I would have just retreated and beat myself internally about it, but instead, I remembered what my therapist told me this week. this helped me process things easily and in turn helped me go out.
The bitch of anxiety was causing havoc inside my mind and also she was joined by mother nature, which meant all the signs were telling me to stay safe in my bubble. What pushed me out the door is, defiance, I am not apologising anymore for being who I am. I have beaten myself up enough and I’m tired of others piling in on that fight.
So my tip of the day is –
We are who we are.
I have fought tooth and fucking nail to get to this point in my life, to finally start accepting who I am. We are all on a journey and many of us with mental illness or mental health issues probably get told more than most how they should live their lives.
- You should exercise more that will help with depression.
- It is all in your head.
- Get a hobby.
- Get over it.
- Let it go.
- You are too sensitive.
- You are dramatic.
- You are crazy.
I bet they sound familiar. We are not meant to clones of each, we are met to be individuals and individuals have flaws and positives. Don’t comprise who you are because other people tell you to. If people want to label you as weird because you are not like them, well let that weird flag fly. How are we ever going to learn to accept ourselves and grow as people, if people keeping telling us how to live our life’s. Life is a journey, we all have our own path to follow, and that path is going to have smooth parts and rough parts. We make mistakes we achieve accomplishments, we are not always going to be wrong and we are not always going to be right.
We are just going to who we are, the good, the bad and the damn right fucking amazing warriors.
