Mental health peptalk

Hi honey,

I want to start this article by saying it’s okay to reach out for professional help. It’s easy to get caught up by everyone’s opinion. You have to keep in mind that everything is subjective. It took me a long time to realize there is no right or wrong. You have to do what feels right for you. My advice is to start by setting boundaries and guidelines that match the person you want to become. Don’t let anyone, not even the member of your family, make you feel guilty for the choices and decisions you take for your wellbeing. Other people will come to different decisions because they come from different realities. 

Don’t be naive, keep having a critical point of view

About a year ago, I started to work on myself and my mental health. I started listening to many podcasts about self-improvement, wellbeing, and yoga. I was super exited and inspired by what they were saying. I started being more aware of my own thoughts and actions. I started making little changes in my life. I don’t regret a single thing, but a few months ago I started to feel a type of psychological distress. I realized too much information can be very overwhelming to take in. Also, the people around and online who are giving advice are often not trained professionals and what they say can be delivered the wrong way. They can also telling opinions instead of true facts. In brief, what I have learn is everything is subjective. What feels good at the moment might feel wrong later on and it’s totally normal. It means you are growing as an individual. Keep making mistake keep being wrong. By being wrong you allow yourself to grow.

Don’t isolate yourself

I will sound like an old mom but just because it works for someone else, does not mean it will work for you. Don’t hesitate to consult a professional to help you navigate and appropriate to yourself the things you listen to. Diversify the people you listen to. Everything that touches mental health and spirituality is very subjective, so if the content doesn’t resonate with you, you are not the problem. It is completely normal. 

 Don’t forget to be kind with yourself. Nobody will love you as much as you can. It is really important to heal yourself to be able to help others.

    I have been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all web
    owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful
    than ever before.
