This is me. This is the journey I’ve been on, the journey I’m going through, and the journey I will go on. I’ve been to the dark places in my head and I’ve worked my way out to find joy in discovering the best me. This is #mebeingme…
This blog will not be a place where I complain about people in my past or present. It will be a place where I talk about how I’ve learned to take control of my own happiness so maybe my journey can help you on your journey. We are all different and so beautifully created that what works for me may not fully work for you but everyone can find happiness.
The things that I have gone through have been hard. I could easily say that many have gone through hard things so I should just suck it up and get on with my life but that would diminish my pain. My pain is real, as is yours and it must be accepted and processed so you can move on. It is when we push our pain to the side that it builds and ends up taking control of us.
I have been to the point that a broken tea pot has made me fall to the ground in complete tears and despair. Calling my mom because the pain is too much for me to handle. Seriously, A TEA POT! We all know the saying “Don’t cry over spilt milk,” well that’s what we’re working towards. Because when we don’t process our pain and work through the hard stuff, spilt milk or a broken tea pot can feel like the end of the world.
During that broken tea pot phase, I was in the process of working through my pain. It is so true that it will get worse before it gets better. But when you finally face the demons within, life is so much brighter and beautiful.
I’m not a psychologist, therapist, or doctor (if you need one, find one that listens for longer than 30 min). This is my journey and the things I have learned along the way. I know I will be learning more, because bringing out the best me will always be a work in progress.
