I couldn't sleep a few nights ago I decided to work on my blog and write an inspirational post. I actually started writing this post a few months ago, but I didnt finish it until the other night. As I get older, I like to think that I grow wiser. Since I have both depression and anxiety, I'm usually coping with trying to manage both. I learn so much about myself. My fears, my ambitions, and most importantly becoming a healthier (physically and mentally) better version of myself.
Trust God's Process
As always I'm not one to push my religious beliefs on anyone. With that being said, trusting God's Process isnt always easy or least for me it isn't. God has a plan for me. I've gone through things I dont understand. I'm still going through things I dont understand. It's all apart of the process. I'm a believer that you may not understand what or why you're going through certain things, but I feel eventually everything will make sense or you'll be better and stronger for things you've gone through.
Trust your process
I've never understood why do people put so much valuable time and energy into things and people that just don't matter. I'm guilty of this as well. I know that sounds harsh, but let me explain. Why do we as people allow others define how we feel about ourselves? I've learned over the years anyone or anything that adds that negativity and toxicity to my life I need to remove ASAP! You're the one who ultimately has to live your life, so why would you live it according to others? Do you and just live your life, happily.
Live your best life, not your best lie
Piggybacking off my last point, I see this so much on social media. People seeing others living extragant lifestyles etc, so you may feel you should be doing the same or even feel insecure. Living your best life isn't defined by how much money you have, in my opinion living you best life is partly defined by your happiness. You should never go into debt to keep up with others or to show off for social media.
Be the best Version of yourself, not the perfect version of yourself
No one is perfect, we all are human and we're bound to make some mistakes in the journey we call life. Forgive yourself for those mistakes and learn from them. I used to put so much pressure on myself to the point I was starting to feel unhappy. I stopped putting that type of pressure on myself years ago. I embrace who I am, and that's truly best the version of myself.
