What I Wore To My Therapist
I shared this photo and caption
yesterday on my Instagram
thought it was important enough
to share here as well.
As I wrote yesterday
I don't do this to over share or be flippant
but rather to make a statement on how important
I think mental health is in practicing
Life can be hard and messy at times
sometimes relationships don't work out
the way we hope.
When this happens to me
I make an appointment with
sometimes it takes a professional
to help sort out the
pain and the hurt
anger doesn't become an undercurrent in my soul.
I'm not sharing this from a place
of sadness today
but from a place
of strength and confidence.
in the fact I can trust myself to
take good care of me.
Which gives me courage
to show up more fully in life.
I live a beautiful gracious life
with much gratitude
because I have worked hard to get here.
I am grateful that I have learned
the importance of
I am ever so aware
of the importance of treating myself with
love and kindness
so I can offer the same to others.
Not only that
I know if I don't invest in my own emotional reserves
I can come too close for comfort
to wreking emotional chaos
on those I love
when I am coming from a place of anger and fear.
So I am
because I am proud
for being strong enough
to seek out help
to put the pieces of my life in order.
I am also most grateful
to be going to one of my very favorite places today.
Nothing feeds my soul
like hiking in nature
with good friends at the beach.
As always my friends
I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
