Doesn’t My 4 year old niece take the most flattering pictures of me 🤣👌🏻❤️.
I’ve said it before , and I’ll say it again .
Starting counciling was one of the best choices I have ever made .
I don’t struggle with chronic depression or chronic anxiety .
But . Physical illness, does not just affect you physically .
It affects every aspect of your life ,
It affects your relationships with people , your perspective on your self , and how you interact with the world .
I was honestly nervous to do my counciling appointment today .
( because well Lately in my life I’m just nervous . All the Dang time 🤣😅)
And I thought I completely and utterly FAILED the assignment he gave me .
But talking to him I did exactly what he wanted me to do .
Funny enough a lot of today was spent talking about perfectionism .
He doesn’t know things just thought of how I have personally grown FINALLY making my mental health a priority.
Finally not just throwing traumas in my life to the side with a laugh .
But ACTUALLY having to deal with them .
And .. well I’m still an absolute train wreck of a human 🤣 .
But I’ve come so dang far .
And it hasn’t been easy .
I mean I tell you all ALOT.
But not every battle is shared on social media .
And I’m naturally more of a private person by nature .
But it has been WORK , and continues to be work to improve some of the things I struggle with.
But the work has been worth it .
I’m SO grateful that I have really good medical insurance that makes this possible.
And I honestly wish in America we took #MentalHealth more seriously.
Because it truly does impact everything.
It’s just important as physical health ❤️.
If you have the opportunity to do counciling while you are battling illness .
I highly recommend it .
