Happy May!!! This is the month that means a lot to me because it’s #mentalhhealthawareness month!
I have been wrapped up in quite a few crazy things/feelings lately and I’ve come to realize the majority of it stems from not taking very good care of my brain. I feel a bit like a hypocrite. I talked the talk but didn’t walk the walk in terms of asking for help when I needed it most.
The statement in this meme #peopleneedotherpeople came to me via email from @twloha These 4 simple words feel like a flashing neon sign to me... I keep forgetting how important it is to need others, and most importantly- that it’s okay to need others. I have failed at this, to many times to count. In every aspect of my life I’ve always been the “one who can do it all....all by myself”.. and so it’s made me closed off in a way because in thinking I can “do it all- alone” I am alienating others who can help or who actually want to feel needed. This creates a negative feedback loop and lowers my ability to cope properly. My body is now revolting because of it. When you don’t take care of your mind, your emotions... your body becomes crippled from the inside out. A lesson I’m learning the hard way. So, I’m saying to myself it’s time to learn new lessons, better coping skills, healthier habits.. one day, one hour, one moment at a time. And I’m reminding myself and all of you- it’s a wonderful necessity to need other people. #lifequotes #wordsofwisdom
