A Personal Post…
Disclaimer: This post is super personal and doesn’t have a lot to do with fashion or lifestyle but alas, here we go!
Do you ever have something that you need to do in the back of your mind but you just never get around to doing it? If you said no, I know you’re lying because we all do this! I’ve been wanting to create blog posts for you guys for the last month or so but I’ve been going through crazy life changes that I just haven’t had the mental energy to do it. I hope you guys aren’t upset and I hope you understand!
The main thing I wanted to talk about today is self care. This past month I’ve put myself through some crazy situations where I didn’t realize the outcomes would have lasting effects and when it came to the aftermath I never put my emotions or my health first. We all do this, but for me it’s because I feel like I need to please others before I can give myself closure. It’s natural for the mind to take time to heal. The situations presented to me made me realize that I want so much more from myself but in order to do that I needed to learn how to be by myself first. My biggest struggle this past month has been acceptance of the unknown. I was scared people would leave my life and even though that’s a natural thing, it still made me uncomfortable.
What I’ve come to learn is that even when you have hard situations, the people in your life who care will always be there for you to support you. While that is always needed, I learned that you ultimately need to go with your gut/heart/whatever to be truly okay because advice and opinions are just that. I have a hard time making decisions for myself because I am constantly wanting to please everyone and that is why I am here to let you know that you need to be okay with making decisions for yourself to be okay mentally!
I know this is a bigger issue and there is more to it but I just want to let you know that no matter how hard life is being to you, the things that are happening to you are happening because they are shaping the person you are meant to be. It was hard for me to understand that because I thought I had it all together when I was 18, I thought I knew who I was and what I wanted but I didn’t at all. Now that I am entering my 20s (21 to be precise) I am hoping that they are shaping me into the best person I can be and I am excited to meet her.
I hope you took something from this reading and I wish you all the best of luck with your journeys and remember, you are constantly turning into the person you are meant to be.
