It’s time to accept the ups and downs of life. We can’t expect to ride straight all the way. Time to buckle in and ride the waves of this thing called life. Accept the good with the bad and better yourself.
One year ago today, I was doing the same thing. Not sleeping and writing a post with my thoughts. This time I know why. It is amazing when you read something and it all confirms that you are a stronger person then before. You are exceeding more than before. Yes, the alarm is going to go off in 47 mins, however this time I blame the book….
If you have been reading my personal story from the start, you would have read that I have been diagnosed with Depression and Anxiety. While on the journey of telling everyone my life, a lot of it no one knows. I can not believe my mind convinced me to think I was happy. The mind that thinks alcohol and drugs is what makes you happy is a damaged mind. No matter how much you hide behind numbing yourself, your problems will always be there. I wish for people to reach out for help, and always know, you are not alone. Many things can alter your identity. You are the only one the can alter it the right way by talking about what you have and/or are going through.
If I was to ask you to name three things that make up apart of your identity, could you?
Empathy has a somewhat ambiguous definition these days because people don’t understand the difference between higher frequency empathic abilities and our innate ability as the human species to emotionally relate to one another, wether through experience or sheer sensitivity to someone’s projected emotions. The trick here is, however, when you have anxieties and stresses of your own and you have someone in front of you freaking out, how do you differentiate between what emotions are yours and which ones are your friends, clients, partners etc?
Although there are many stories that I still need to share I feel this blog is just as important. You will notice through this blog that certain things will be skimmed over, as I have blogs planned for them. So I’ll guess I’ll start by saying:
It’s hard to know where to start, so I’m trying to just go with the flow. If it does not make sense to you, just imagine what’s in my head. Through out my real life story, I protect some of the people I will write about. I will change certain people’s names. Hoping that through this whole blog, you will get inspired to tell your own story.
