It’s been a while. I thought that I had this whole blog thing figured out before even publishing my first post. Turns out that it’s actually quite difficult to talk about your mental health in such an unfiltered way. I want to say thank you to everyone who has given me such positive feedback and love!
I don’t really know the direction I’m trying to go in with this post, just talking about what’s on my mind & hoping others that can relate could possibly benefit from it.
It really is a struggle having such passion to make a difference inside of you, yet absolutely no motivation. I often think of all the ‘missed opportunities’ I’ve had over the last few years. All the jobs I’ve ditched, college offers I didn’t accept, everything I could have done with my life instead of doing what can sometimes feel like absolutely nothing. I know that some of you will understand this, probably many of you. it’s so easy to feel that your mental health has set you back.
However, that’s not the case. I now realise I have been working on something of much, much greater value than a new job or finishing my a levels. I have been learning about myself, about my mental health. I have let myself feel utterly terrible and enjoyed every single day that I’ve felt happiness. I have grieved. I have overcome things that never in a million years I thought I would have to go through and I am still here. That is the biggest achievement to me. Everyone has their limits and everyone needs time to heal.
To anyone reading this who has felt or feels this way, you need time to grow, to find what you love, what your passions are. It’s called self care. Embrace your emotions, overcome the bad days because there are much, much brighter ones. 🌹
