Mental health is just as important as your physical health. I have had moments where I would succumb to my thoughts and all I’ve ever thought about doing is sleep. And I’d sleep for hours and hours.
I guess that’s just my way of escaping… granted, it’s not exactly the brightest solution in the world. However, as daunting as it may be; ensuring that you take priority when it comes to your mental health, is crucial too.
And you need to understand the limits to your body too. I am not feeling depressed or suicidal, no. But there are constant thoughts about the what ifs and the maybes, and if I had done the right thing because they keep haunting me.
I’m on the road to healing. I’ve kept myself busy with different activities to keep my mind and my body active.
Praying helps, but I still find it hard to find peace from within, knowing that you’ve lost some amazing people along the way. I guess when we’ve been hurt, it’ll take a while before we are able to gain the trust we have lost… or possibly never again.
Keep telling yourself that there will be good days, and there will certainly be bad days. It is your resilience in the face of adversity, almost like a test of faith, that would define who you are at the end of the day.
Let the bitter memories be sweet, if it’s not today, then perhaps someday.
