At Peace or Just Numb?


Let's talk about mindset today. 

I'm one that's determined to see the glass half full. Giving the benefit of the doubt to others comes naturally... to a fault really. (Although, as I've gotten older, this has become a thinner line to cross.)

Getting older freaks me out some, too. "So scared of getting older; I'm only good at being young." So, like John Mayer, "I play the numbers game to convince myself that life has just begun." This causes the "fear" to subside on the regular. 

I often have quick panic attacks thinking I may never have a family and I'll be old and alone. But then I convince myself that I'll be the coolest 80-year-old lady ever and everyone will want to talk to me.

I honestly do try to see the (possible) good in every situation. And while I think that's a nice way to feel "at peace," it can also be a way to simply numb. 

The latter... not always the best. 

Know your safe spaces. Learn where you can comfortably "let it out," and do it when you need to.

You can still look on the bright side and keep pushing through all the crap... but don't let it eat you up from the inside out because you choose to "deal" with it alone or ignore it.

Mental health is finally starting to get attention... for good reason! EVERYONE of us has to constantly check in on ours. It doesn't take too much or too long to fall into a negative space. Don't let that happen.

There ARE people who care about you and want to hold you up when you're falling. You will find amazing humans that breathe life into you. 

I'm glad I learned that. 

I pray you have, too!

So much love, friends.
