We all have our moments when we feel as if the whole world is on our shoulders or that nothing can possibly get any worse. For a lot of people, these moments can turn into days, weeks, months, or even years.
We become trapped inside our own head and after a while, we start to believe that we may never get out.
Reality becomes more and more distant and everyday tasks seem almost impossible to us.
What is most important to remember when going through all the struggles and pains of life is that reality will seem like it has vanished and is completely out of reach but that is only your mind playing tricks on you. Our minds are more powerful than we think.
When someone is sick, many of us go straight to the conclusion of a physical illness like a cold, flu, strep, etc., but there can be other reasons why a person is sick.
People will tell you to keep your body healthy, but that does not just mean eating your fruits and vegetables or washing your hands. We tend to look at our bodies as a physical aspect but our mind is a part of our body too, and we must keep it healthy as well.
A person's mental health plays a ginormous role in everyday life. As human beings, we are meant to go out into the world and explore new places and meet new people. This is good for our minds because it gives them the chance to interact and actually think about things.
If we were to stay in the same place forever and never talk to anyone, our minds would eventually turn against us because we would have never given them the opportunity to think about anything besides what is around us.
It is crucial for us to exercise our minds because when we are faced with anxiety and depression it will be much easier to beat it.
We all will cross paths with anxiety and depression at some point in our lifetime and some people are genetically born with it because it runs in their family. It challenges everyone in different ways but there is a cure and that is keeping aware of our mental health.
When you have been fighting the same battle for months now, sometimes you need to take a step back and realize how far you've already come. These challenges that we are faced with can only make us stronger.
Remember that our minds like to play tricks on us and make us believe that nothing will ever get better. Well, I have dealt with anxiety and depression my entire life and still do to this day, and I'm here to tell you that it does get better.
No matter how bad you think your life is at the moment, you must remember that you were lucky enough to wake up this morning. Use today and all the opportunities handed to you to the best of your ability because you will never get this day back.
Time does not stop so why should you?
