I've really been struggling with my mental health recently. The other week I cried for hours because my favourite mug ☕ got a chip in it 😂
I have signed up for therapy which will take a few months but in the meantime I have started going to mental health meet ups. Yesterday I went to a craft meet up and made these amazing rainbow pompoms of joy 🌈. I felt so sick before I went 🤢, so anxious about being around people who knew I was struggling. I hate showing any vulnerability. BUT it was great and I didn't have to make bullshit small talk with anyone (I loathe small talk) or share any deep emotional woes. I just sat there for two hours making 3 floofy Pom Poms while listening to smooth FM 🎶 and then did a silly quiz at the end (I came joint third). It was nice to get out of my own head and go into a space with zero expectations.
This week I have tried to put my happy head on even when I didnt feel it. I turned the broken mug I cried over, into where I keep my crystals. I also repotted my peace lily, which is still alive after nearly a month! (It's a miracle!).
So yeah sometimes things are shit, sometimes they're good, sometimes they're both. Go turn that sad into a Pom Pom and try not to kill your house plants 🌱💕 at Bristol, United Kingdom
