I am faced with many challenges but feeling good is not one of them. This week has been the worse and my continued struggle with work and life has shown me that change is needed. What I also know to be true is my sense of purpose. All my life, I have felt as though I had no purpose, no guide, no direction. A factor that should be very important to grow but for whatever reason, I have always felt empty.
In the next few weeks, I am going to focus on my self, my writing and finding a better path to mental health and wellness. I have cleaned out all the garbage from my social media, the non essentials and feel as though one subject is enough to make me whole. I am faced with the idea that digging deeper and accepting certain factors are imperative if I am to succeed at work and live a better lifestyle.
The only way to do this is to take the necessary steps and that my readers is the big picture.
Mental health is a very serious conversation and must be taken with great patience and understanding. Some people do not know how to act around people who suffer and that is a damn shame because we are the one’s who need it the most. Out of all the people I work with, only one has reached out to me and recent events have shown me that time and money are very important but the health of one’s self is more.
I don’t know how I will cope with my life during my time off, as we all know the stress of it is getting doctors and paperwork filled out for the insurance to accept my short team leave of absence and it makes me sick to think that when a person is in need, there is not enough help out there.
It is a triage process, which I understand but I think all case pertaining to mental health issues are important.
To whom ever reads this: thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to accept people and understanding their struggle. A word of appreciation can go a long way.
