Don’t give up on yourself

If life things will be difficult and they may not go according to how you had them planned in your mind, don’t give up on yourself. Life is a process and anything can happen, within this process. When you fall down, get back up and start over. Everyday is a fresh start a new beginning, you owe it to yourself to not let yourself down, you are stronger than you think and you can do this.

If Oprah Winfrey gave up on her dreams and gaols , she wouldn’t be inspiring the millions of people she is today (Below is a YouTube video you of her story). Now you may not want to be Oprah but I’m sure you want more from your life just as she did, despite all she went through.

Keep going, keep pushing, keep striving. You are not alone. Thanks for reading. Shar x

Why does it take time to Heal

When you are going through a rough stage in life (e.g. Mental Health Problem) I can imagine you wanting to, wave a magic wand to feel like your old self again. This is a common feeling and I have treated patients with common mental health problems who have wanted, nothing more than to feel happier again (understandable).

If this is you, you can get to that place of happiness again, but this will take time and consistency. Working and developing yourself is a process that should not be rushed and should be taken seriously and with care. When you grow you heal and this is how the process of transitioning, from the place where you are now (depressed or anxious) to the place where you want to be (happy).

For example; If you’ve been depressed for over 2 years and all you want is to feel happy, this feeling of happiness is not a common feeling for you at the moment and you may not be aware of what this feels like. Such as how you need to think, feel and behave. This will take practice and learning how to change from the person you are, to the person you want to become. Being unwell for a while you need to be able to recover in a timely manner. Everyone is different when it comes recovery, some people may take months, weeks and for other this may take years and that’s ok because you are on your own journey, finding what happiness is for you and you are not the same as others

Always remember that everything will happen in the right time, if you are working on how to become happy and you want to develop in that area, don’t stop keep going your end goal is around the corner. Don’t give up on yourself.

Thanks for reading I hope this post has inspired you all, to take time in your healing process and to not give up of this maybe a long process. Shar x
