I’ve Been having a hard time with my depression recently. I’ve taken some time out and realised I have a lot of habitual negative thoughts about myself that if I was feeling abit run down or tired, I would let get to me and the thoughts would get out of control.
I would get into a pattern of questioning myself all the time and beating myself up. I’d feel the pressure whenever someone would call me a ‘role model or an inspiration’ I’d think to myself ‘but I’m not perfect I cannot live up to those things’. ????
These things and ways of thinking are not good for me, do not bring the best out of me nor do they help me to grow.
I am grateful for everything I have, but I do struggle and I am committed to changing things and letting go of anything that doesn’t help me to become a better person. Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy and no one can change that but ourselves.
It all starts within.
If anyone else is giving themselves a hard time or feeling the pressure to live up to anything. I hope that you know that you are not alone, take each day as it comes and work on letting go of anything that doesn’t encourage you in a positive way. Those things include your own toxic ways of thinking and bringing yourself down.
It also helps to be around people who bring the best out of you. You owe it to yourself to commit to making that change. It will be worth it. ❤️????. @natashakbenjamin
