The fog I was experiencing in December seems to have passed. I’m having a very successful year so far. I know that I will have struggles. Mental health will never fully go away. I’m just thankful that I have times where things are bright and cheery. It really does help me get through the slog of depression.
I think another thing that has helped is that I bought a gratitude journal that I’ve been writing in every day since New Year’s. I’m also getting better at talking out my feelings before they get out of hand. That’s something I’ve been very bad about doing in my past.
This year, I plan to continue what I started on accident. I will write some things that happened that were good and some things I struggled with. I really feel like it has been helping out very much. I may start keeping a journal in that regard so that writing it up on Wednesdays will be easier. I can’t express how thankful I am to you for reading these. It isn’t easy to write these sometimes.
Please know. You aren’t alone. If you need somebody to talk to, I am here for you. Email me anytime. Or comment. Whatever helps you.
