Here’s the reality of depression.
Today was rough.
Nothing bad happened, it was just a regular day. But I felt just so tired, not motivated, easily irritated, sleepy but can’t sleep. That’s depression for you. Nothing triggered it.
On Sunday, I felt motivated. I pushed myself to get my planners all done & to follow through. And I told myself to get this one errand done this week (one I’ve avoided for two weeks). I was going to do it today.
But there was so much anxiety in me and so much feelings of… (too be honest I don’t know).
I can’t do it today.
And that is okay.
It took me awhile to be okay with the fact that things can wait. If you’re feeling too sad and too anxious, you don’t have to do it right away. It can wait.
Take care of your mental and physical health first, that’s more important. I always tell myself to “sleep on it, and wake up tomorrow to a new day”.
I was going to write about my room. What I do to make my room a safe place.
But I’ll do it tomorrow.
I’m giving myself a mental break.
Tomorrow is a new day.
One thought on “Mental Health Awareness: Day 3”
Been there Mel and understand. Look after yourself.
Important you do not beat yourself up about your feelings. Let yesterday go and start afresh. If I can help let me know.
