In honor of this being mental awareness month..
I just want to say that your mental health is just as important as your physical health. You wouldn’t dismiss broken bones so why dismiss a broken mind?
If you know you’re not in the right headspace and haven’t been for a while, get help. It’s okay! It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s nothing to be ashamed of. There are so many people out there who want to help you and guess what? You reaching out to them is not weakness. In fact, it’s a sign of strength! Sometimes asking for help is the bravest move you can make. Honestly, you don’t have to go through what you’re going through alone.
Let’s say you’re in a good headspace though! Everything’s cool, copesthetic and your mental health is at an all time high for the most part but every now and then certain people will come around to try and disrupt that. How? They do it with their negative energy, poor attitudes and bad vibes and sometimes they’re so aggravating that if you dwell long enough on the little petty stuff that they’re doing, you automatically compromise your mental health and any little peace that you had.
Speaking from my own personal experiences, there are over seven trillion nerves in the human body and I promise you that there are some people in my life that are capable of getting on every last damn one of them!! I am so serious when I say being around them compromises my self peace after a while! So here’s something that I’ve learned to say that helps me and it’s a really good mental reminder:
“My Peace is more important.”
Always remember that when you find yourself reacting to something that doesn’t deserve your energy. Prioritize your inner wellness and learn to cultivate an active mindset of peace by consciously deciding that you’ll elevate higher than any situation that arises, especially the petty ones. Know when to let foolery be foolery and know when to stop talking and just walk away.
There are two other things that have been a major help to me:
- Setting Boundaries & making people respect them.
- Saying “No” & meaning it. NO is a whole and complete sentence all by itself. It doesn’t need any explanation behind it!!
At the end of the day though, do what YOU need to do in order to keep the entire being of your mental health protected! Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog today!!
