Healing doesn’t have to look magical or pretty. Real healing is hard, exhausting and draining.
Let yourself go through it.
Don’t try to paint it as anything other then what it is.
Be there for yourself with no judgment.
That’s the hard part isn’t it?
The no judgment part!
Because I’m already emotionally drained and exhausted but yet I need to remember to be gentle with myself.
How do I do this?
A fucking lot of practice and then I still fall short. It’s something new I’ve learned but exactly what I needed in order to survive the storm.
Mental health is what we all need to spend more time on. Our emotional intelligence, learning to heal our hearts so that we might teach others how to heal theirs as well.
I have to exercise, read, meditate, do yoga, write and hang out with friends in order to support my mental health. I’ve learned that if I don’t take time to be still every single day, even if it’s just for ten minutes then my worry will begin to take over.
I will feel tired and depleted of energy. Drained, not wanting to be around others and not wanting to be alone either.
I’ve learned the importance of making yourself do something that you don’t want to do and by doing things that scare the shit out of me I’ve been able to change my life.
I resemble this right now and I honor myself. Unless your my friend and you spend time with me consistently, you have zero clues what I’m really going through. I’m strong enough to battle the storms of life if it means there will will be love and light again.
Because I deserve the love that I give so freely 💜
