Hey blog! Its been a while.
I’ve been busy with school, life and figuring out what it means to be happy.
Even though I’ve been thinking I had the absence of self-loathing I needed to be truly happy, sometimes life hits you like a ton of bricks and everything comes crashing back in.
Sometimes, even though I’ve tried my hardest to right my wrongs and make peace, some memories don’t seem to fade.
Sometimes, forgiveness is hardest when you realize you have to forgive yourself.
Sometimes growing up is hindered by being held back by regrets.
Sometimes life isn’t the walk in the park we thought it would be in our younger days.
All of these things are okay, or will be! Its okay to realize your flaws because thats what makes us unique and human.
Its alright to acknowledge that you need help. Although, I’ve read some quotes saying “people that don’t realize they need/seek help are weak.” I find this to be simply untrue. Most people that don’t seek help are held down by the stigma and fear of judgement. Most people that don’t seek help don’t have the necessary support systems that promote healthy behaviours. So next time you’re judging someone for feeling afraid or ashamed of their mental illness and failing to seek help, DON’T. Its really not your place to shame anyone for anything to do with their own health whether you see it as right or wrong. Encouraging others and being supportive is always welcome though, don’t underestimate the power you can have by loving someone unconditionally.
Thanks for taking the time to read my short rant, I love you guys!
Keep on working through the tough times, who knows when the sun will shine on you? 🙂
