Taking care of yourself goes beyond eating healthy, exercising daily, going to all your annual checkups, or getting the proper amount of sleep. But taking care of you also includes taking care of your mental health. We all experience struggles, tragedies, and emotional pain that can put us in a dark place, cause us to behave out of character, or negatively force us to act out.
Can others emphasize or sympathize? “Yes,” because we all understand what it means to struggle or experience emotional pain. Either through personal experience or what we witness from others. However, everyone experiences struggles, tragedies, and emotional pain differently because we are not the same mentally, physically, or spiritually.
But did you know the very people that we love and trust? Can be the very people who trigger unwanted emotions, not knowingly? I’m not saying the people close to you are not your biggest supporter. But what I am saying is we can also benefit from becoming mentally healthy with no one’s help but our very own.
Our most prominent supporter, in the end, is ourselves.
Therapy works, don’t be afraid to lay on a couch. It will bring peace of mind.
