    Don't miss the Opportunities #MentalHealth #giveback #Depression #Christian #beardformentalhealth #ChronicIllness #Pain #Grace

    When your past catches up to you in the best of ways!

    I am so thankful for this day, just today. I will worry about tomorrow, tomorrow. How do you respond today?

    Question;

    'Hey Bearded I heard a story from u when u used 2 use hard drugs what was the pivotal moment that made u want to change and take action. '

    Response:

    “I am not sure. I became frustrated that I was not good at dying so had to become better at living. Maybe *so, maybe God, maybe I can be cowardly deep down and it's harder facing life than death, **I needed to not be cowardly**. I hated the endless cycle of screwing up, the resulting depression/suicide thoughts and attempts, I hate the idea that I was in a hamster wheel, and had to get out, not knowing what that would entail, I did it anyway. It is still very, very hard, but have been a lot happier recently. How you been? Anything I can do to help?”

    I am so much further from perfect than I am from my 'past' yet I am proud of myself today. Celebrate the small victories, and give back.

    We are **NOT**carried through these storms without purpose, we are destined to use our stories, even our raw ones, as long as they are truthful, they can be used for good, for impact, maybe even to save another persons life.

    There is something to be said, lots actually, about receiving a lesson when giving to others.

    Enjoy your day, don't miss the opportunities.

    I am so far further from perfect than I am from my 'past' yet I am proud of myself today. Celebrate the small victories, and give back.

    How do you help others when you're stuck at home? #giveback

    #Disability and #ChronicIllness warriors: what kind of things do you find you can do at home to help other people when you can't get out? Some knit and donate; some write cards. Other suggestions? #StuckInside

    Helping those who have hurt you in the #past

    I have had to take a step back from a member of my family who has both hurt me but helped me too. Ive been doing this since last May. Things are improving a bit with less confusion in my mind about how #angry i am that they massively #letmedown . However I have been trying to practise #compassion and #Selflove towards myself and others. I helped that family member yesterday and she is elderly and cannot use computers but I managed to resolve her problem. I felt compassion for her and it was ok to help her. She will always be important to me and someone who I loved very much as a child.
    It felt good to #giveback and not feel too #resentful for the anger she has once caused me. However I still kept boundaries in place and she knows not to push it. Haha!

    I find myself overcompensating; going all out for a holiday I neither like or dislike because I know it is one others love. Sometimes what we really need from life is to give back, to make others happy, to silently thank the universe that they are still around us to celebrate the occasion - no matter what the occasion is. Sometimes the tackiness, the fake enthusiasm, the fatigue and the crash... Sometimes they're worth it.
