So, after yesterday’s post, you have the picture that I don’t go half way, or half ass. If I am going to do something, I am going to give it my all. I am not going to lie, the healing process might be a bigger obstacle to overcome than you realize. It may take you longer, it may be way harder than you think, and there may be so many things to sort through that you don’t know when it will end.
It has been an ordeal, healing simultaneously while my husband heals, while my children heal, while we navigate the normal things in life, and the hard things life dishes out. Life has a way of leading us as we go, assisting our desire to process, heal and grow. What we don’t consider is the time spent in this endeavor, and the time consumed trying to breakthrough.
We may pursue our mental health and well being with a fervor unrivaled, we may just relax in to it, and we may cry or scream our way through it. However we go about mental wellness, support, caring, and communication can be key. Open curiosity about ourselves and our journey can aid us in our quest, it can also help us to be present for others on their journey. The biggest thing though, is the desire to feel our best, and to know that we need to work through things to get there.
If you are struggling, know that you are not alone. If you are having a difficult time with some sort of trauma in your life, you are not alone. If you have suffered a loss, you are not alone. If you need someone to help you sort through some stress, you are not alone. There are people and resources available to you, you should never have to pursue your best mental health alone.
I personally believe in Adena Counseling Center and Mares Cares. I am sure there are other places locally that others can attest to, but these two places have great people that are qualified to help you, they want to help you, and they have helped many people that I love and care for.
