If you have been reading me since the beginning or know me in real life, then you must already be aware that I suffer from panic attacks and depression. Lately I’ve been feeling quite down and re-thinking things as I am getting tired of some people and how they treat me; therefore, I’ve retreated to my own space and I´m trying to feel better. However, I know that sometimes it seems impossible to to put a smile on my face when I am like this, so here are 9 of my go to things to do when I need to cheer up and inject some joy in my life…even if for only couple of hours!
Does it happen to you that there are some doors to the past that you keep coming back to, sometimes because you remember a small thing, even though it is not good for you? I have a huge door to something specific from my past, that I have closed some years ago, but that keeps haunting me and triggering my anxiety and depression. However, due to recent events, lots of debating and struggles, I am done.
The key to all those things is ready to be turned.
Lately, I’ve been feeling down about a variety of things. The stress of certain aspects of my life have brought up my depression and my head is being flooded with bad thoughts. Some of them are related to me not doing things I actually want or not being able to accomplish dreams. So I thought that maybe writing a list of the ones I’d like to fulfil really soon, as I am already 29 (I know…the horror!! 😛) because it might give me something to work for.
Hopefully, before the 4th of January 2019, I’d have been able to cross most of these out of my list!
And just like that, 2017 is (almost) gone. Incredible, isn’t it? Soon, we were in December and it seemed like Christmas passed in a blink of an eye, as temperatures here grew hotter and hotter. Suddenly, everybody started talking about their best moments of the year, showing their best nine on Instagram and writing their New Year’s resolutions. Slowly, I found myself thinking of every single detail of 2017 and trying to make a balance about it all.
Hello, everyone! How have you been? I deeply apologize for the lack of posts but I am sick (the Winter came and brought me a strong cold), I´ve been jumping from doctor to doctor and my mental health has not been in its brightest time. Therefore, I have been taking time out from social media and I´ve been focusing on me, my plans and my loved ones. However, I have tons of ideas and upcoming good things to show you here!
That said, today I bring you a post that I decided to do as an exercise for myself and to cheer up a bit; I have seen similar posts online and I thought that it would be a good idea to try and do it.
Loving ourselves is one of the hardest yet most important things we must do, and those around me tell me I need to do it more in order to get better. So, here is my take on The Self Love Tag!
