Even though I have mental health issues, I do not let that stop me from becoming who I was supposed to become. I actually take active measures to help myself and my mental health overcome and identify problems that affect me. Let’s go over a few of the things that I do to help my problems.
I listen to my body and brain
I am a big fan of listening to my body whenever I work out. However, that isn’t the only time and place where I should listen to my body. I listen to my body at all times because depending on how my body reacts and behaves to a certain situation is how I’ll address or treat myself. I’ll give you an example. The other day, my dad asked me if I wanted to watch Saving Private Ryan and I couldn’t help but to get this bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. I kept telling myself that I wouldn’t watch it because I felt like that type of violence is not good for me. So I did not watch it. I will admit it, that I I felt like a wuss just because I didn’t watch the movie that all bros watch. However, I knew for myself what my limits were and I didn’t let that stop me.
I also listen to my brain. If I feel something, an emotion, then I can quickly associate it with my brain. If I perceive things in a wrong manner, then I can associate that with my brain as well. I have to be careful as to what I subject my mind to because different things will trigger me differently.
Both of these manners is important to comprehend, not one is above the other.
I forgive and forget
I have learned that holding on to grudges and hurt and the things that people have done to hurt you is not a good way to live. I have learned that holding on to the bitterness that people leave behind with me is just going to make me a bitter person. Instead I choose to forgive and forget. Forgiving and forgetting about what people have done to hurt me, actually has just become a part of me now and I struggle with it sometimes, but I quickly manage to get back on myself.
