As I continue to learn more about my self awareness as a mental health blogger I have realized that I have so much more self control over myself because of this blog and the impact that it has had on my life in so many unexpected ways. My Weight Watchers Connect feed is exploding and I feel SO good knowing that I am kicking ass on the program, attending meetings FINALLY showing up!
Most of all I’m happy that despite the mini meltdown on Saturday I recovered extremely quickly by reorganization my thoughts into better constructive words and made new thoughts in my head by reinforcing teachings from ‘Feeling Good’. Overall I’m still at the same place I was two weeks ago in the book.. But that doesn’t matter.
I am better today than I was 3 months ago and it’s because of this blog and the impact that I have felt from it. As I’ve explained to my therapist last Thursday all I do now is work my career, and then focus on this blog solely and building my online YouTube community. In addition I am working on a miniseries with Weight Watchers Connect community on self help for mental health and provide a friendship to someone that is new to recovery or just needs someone to talk to.
After Tyler Hilinski’s death I’ve just thought more about it and realized just how out of touch the world is with mental illness and that it’s more important than ever before that WE the mental health community and the bloggers UNITE and make some magic happen! We need to break down these stereotypes and destroy the stigma associated with mental health. The system is completely broken and it must be fixed. We cannot afford to lose these innocent children to depression and suicide.
Thank you Followers, Visitor, whoever you are, wherever you are for taking the opportunity out of your day to spend it with me.
I’m really working on daily content! I’m happy!
