My tools for wellness (Intro)
I wanted to write and share today to talk about my mental health. I, like many on this site, struggle with anxiety, depression, and imposter syndrome. It has been a roller coaster for the past few years with way more spiraling downs than the fun and exciting highs. Way too often I’ve been so far down that I could not see the beauty around me. I would get a glimpse every now and then, but never really long enough for me to remember it through the lows. This roller coast has consumed so much of my life, and I am just tired of riding it. I know that I will be on this ride for the rest of my life, but I am tired of letting it control me.
I know it is going to be a fight to regain some sort of (I don’t want to use the word control but) enjoyment of my life, but I am setting off on a mission to find the appropriate tools for me that will allow me to reconstruct and reengineer this ride to better fit what I want in my life.
I understand that life and emotions are a roller coaster with many ups and downs - I just want to be able to enjoy my ups when I have them without fear of the incoming fall. I am writing this and sharing this to not only hold myself accountable but to document my journey and my findings with a hope that it might help someone also work on redesigning their roller coaster.
So I will be working on sharing the different tools, quotes, and resources I've found to be helpful to me. I hope that maybe one or two might be a nice tool for someone as well.
