This time last year I was struggling with anxiety, although I hadn’t admitted that to myself, wondering if the feeling of constant panic would ever leave me. Time to Talk Day yesterday made me contemplate how much can change in one year and how far I have come. I don’t think I ever thought I would get to a stage in my life where I was truly content; a move 250 miles away to the North after living in the South for the whole of my life was at first quite unsettling, but it’s what I needed. I’ve found that morning meditation has been key to helping control any anxious thoughts and make me think rationally. Being surrounded by empathetic people who make you feel comfortable around them, who lift you up and support you, helps too. My friend told me recently healing is a long process and it’s ok to not be 100% where you want to be, yet. I’ve realised that although I feel the best I’ve ever felt, it’s still important to take the time to work on myself. This is a message to say that if you aren’t feeling great or aren’t in a good place right now, don’t ever feel like you’re being selfish to take time out to work on yourself, because for a long time, I really did.
