Last year seemed like the year of self- care and self-love.
Everywhere I turned I saw “self-love”, “self-care” and “self-awareness”. It is safe to say that 2018 was the year of “self”. Last year, I was heavily engulfed in my mental health recovery journey. I must say that 2018 was a year of intense learning and self discovery for me. It was one of the best years in terms of my own personal growth and development that I had ever experienced. 2018 was a good year for me. Along my journey I made some major changes that were conducive to maintaining mental health stability.
Maintaining a mental illness is a lifestyle change.
At least in my opinion and experience. I had to change my diet, and incorporate some form of exercise into my routine. This was in addition routine therapy appointments and visits to my psychiatrist for medication management. My therapy in the beginning of this journey was very intense. I was seeing my therapist every week until I got a handle on myself and my situation. Besides focusing on the CBT skills that were going to help me deal with my bipolar disorder and depression, I also found that I began rekindling the relationship with myself.
Rekindling the relationship with myself was an awakening for me.
I started appreciating the qualities that I had ignored for so long. After almost a year, I had discovered the wonderful person that I was. I was sad that I had neglected myself for so long and but happy that I was making the relationship with myself right. This was the true path to self-love.
I can honestly say that when I began focusing on myself, and caring for myself, I started to fall in love with myself. Self-love brought about mental clarity to me.
I have created a new 7 day challenge called “Loving Yourself to Mental Clarity”.
This is a free challenge. I created this for people who are looking to strengthen their relationship with themselves as well as gain mental clarity. Mental health disorders can leave you with low self-esteem and a diminished sense of self-worth. The challenge was designed to quiet noise of all of the outside influences in order to find the answers to your life’s questions on the inside.
