I do mental health check ins on Sunday evenings on Clubhouse, but in reality I feel like those check ins are really for me lol And I actually need to add a check in on Mondays because Mondays are A LOT! Whether you have a massive to-do list or you are hella stressed about the week to come - it calls for a mental health check in!
Last night & earlier today I was feeling bittersweet; I realized that I still have a bit of grief inside of me. Healing from grief, plus all the other emotions associated with it, isn't a quick fix. It takes time . . . so I sat with it.
It is so important to PROTECT YOUR HEART, PROTECT YOUR SPACE & BE CAREFUL OF WHO YOU ALLOW ACCESS TO YOU, more importantly who you share your story with. I've made massive mistakes with trusting the wrong people because they gave me attention, they made feel valuable, but I'm learning now.
You are precious. Your story is precious. And your feelings are valid.
People will do what they want, respond how they want, and invalidate your feelings or situations (unconsciously), merely because they don't know what to say, how it feels or they haven't experienced what you have. And it's not to their fault.
I will say this . . . when you get that feeling in your gut, listen to it because it may be the universe trying to get your attention! So BE CAREFUL and practice discernment more because your heart is begging you for PROTECTION!
Are you listening? Are you truly checking in . . . with yourself?
