When you first realize you are battling a mental illness….its hard. But things start to make sense. Its like ‘oh… so thats what was happening.’ ‘Thats why I’m like that’ But as time goes on you start to lose who you are… you become your illness.
This is the new you. And sometimes it is hard to imagine what it was like before your life became so consumed with battling your demons.
I think it is important if you’re battling a mental illness, or anyone in general, to take time to rediscover themselves. To decompress. To learn what it is like to have just a few moments where you are at peace.
It doesn’t matter how you do it actually. That is the great part about it. Just do anything you love to do at least once a week. But sometimes that is not in the plans. I know life is hectic….things happen. You push your you time back and put others first. At least try to have a you time once a month.
For me….my me time involves photography. And editing photos. But it is winter so going out and taking photos is kind of hard but I do work with the site called Mendr where you can send in your photos via a phone app to have them edited. So, if you don’t like how a photo looks, like maybe there is trash in the background, you should download the Mendr app. Maybe I’ll get your photo… Or maybe comment below and i’ll tell you how I can directly edit your photo thru the Mendr app.
