I am a very transparent person. I truly believe transparency helps people dealing with similar issues who are not ready [to share what they are going through. Well, I woke up the morning boo hoo crying due to my health situation. It has been becoming too much lately and my mind told me that I couldn’t do this anymore.
I got up, sat in my chair and guess how I handled it.
I allowed the tears to flow. Tears are natural, we have tear ducts for a reason, to cleanse. So I am allowing myself to cleanse emotionally. After that I will get up, wash my face and continue to get things done.
Sometimes people take out the human element. Being stoic is great, but being human is greater. Key point “DON’T BEAT YOURSELF UP FOR FEELING, CRYING, ETC…” they are natural human reactions. Tears don’t make you weak, it’s what you do next that matters most.
Whatever you are not changing you are choosing. I chose to change my mind because I refuse to believe that I can’t conquer this! I know you have heard the saying that the battle field is in your mind. Whelp, it is! So make sure that as soon as the negativity shows up you escort them and their friends to the exit.
There is too much life to live and experience to allow yourself to stay in a funky place. Acknowledge, Feel, Accept and Keep Moving Forward.
