I got the idea for this post because I had my music on shuffle, Kelly Clarkson you’re a babe. Thanks for the blog inspo!
Anyway if you follow me on Twitter, things have been slightly up and down for me, especially the last 6 months. For various reason which I won’t go into I was struggling with my mental health, however I’ve given myself a bit of a wake up call. We all vent on social media at some point in our lives, I tend to vent in my blog posts too, I mean we all need an outlet don’t we?
Lately I’ve been looking back on where I was around 5 years ago, if you know me, you will know that I have had a massive struggle with anxiety, depression and agoraphobia. It is a battle that I continue to fight to this day, but I am in a much better place than I was, but it is one of those things that is a never ending struggle.
Going through that journey honestly got me to my lowest point ever, I mean I don’t think I could have got any lower, my motivation for life was severely lacking but I was lucky to have my husband, because honestly I don’t know what I would have done without him. Yes I had days where I didn’t even want to get out of bed, let alone put up this big fight.
However I’m the kind of person that believes that you’re only dealt with what you can deal with. Even though at the time I didn’t realise it, it was a struggle, it was a battle I had to have with myself.
There is a reason for my post which I will get to.
We all have strength inside of us, we are all stronger than we realise, especially when we have no other choice. At the time when I was fighting with my mental health, the only option I really had was to get down to my lowest point and try to build myself back up again. We can all have times where we are quick to tell ourselves that we can’t do it, or we aren’t strong enough to do something but incredibly slow on the uptake to tell ourselves we are strong as hell and can take on the world.
Over the last 5 years, I’ve had the chance to learn so much about myself, about my emotions, about who I am as a person and also be able to deal with things from my past. Something which I would never have done before. I was the kind of person that brushed it under the rug and hope for the best basically. That mountain got so big due to certain issues, it basically came crashing down.
I’m beyond excited for where my future is now going to go and what exciting times are ahead. Yes there might be bad days, but do you know what, I’m prepared for that.
It’s time for me to show the world that I am a force to be reckoned with – and so are you!
When you’re feeling like you’re not strong enough, trust me you are and that strength you need is inside of you!
