Someone once told me that my blogs showed my ability for me to be able to work through my life with ease. It may look like that but that’s not always how it goes, but the comment did get me thinking.
There are times when I struggle too. It’s important for me to continue to understand and recognise my struggles so that I am able to work on getting past those. As a child I dealt with anxiety, stress and fear, so it was massively important that I found ways through. As an adult that is what I continue to do.
I believe that when we don’t speak out or deal with our issues, it hurts us more. Not always in the short term, because we cope, but in the longer term our thoughts and struggles can lead to low moments, or bouts of depression.
I have my down days, but I also need to find solutions for me to feel better about what I deal with. I find that writing, talking and being honest about my feelings are the best ways to come to terms with things. Expressing my feelings brings order to my life.
When other people share their feelings too, it helps us to know that we’re really not alone.
