Mental Health: You ARE Good Enough.

Hello lovelies!

We are back with another Mental Health chit chat as I don’t know about you, but with the cold days and dark nights looming in on us, it’s very easy to fall into a trap – a dark spell as you will. If you ask them, a lot of people will explain how they struggle with the changing of seasons and that the earlier it’s darker and the colder it gets, possible signs of depression, or anxiousness begin to kick in. Something as simple as Winter on the way, as well as the media scaremongering us all with overly-exaggerated Covid news, we’re all bound to be feeling extra sensitive to the things going on around us and the things that play an important role in our every day lives.

You may be struggling to find the right job path for you (hey!🙋🏻‍♀️), or you may just be finding it difficult to “fit in” with society, or you could even be going through a messy break-up, BUT you need to remember that no matter what situation you’re in, you ARE good enough, and that as well as there being more people in the world worse off than you, you have no reason to have to please anyone but yourself in giving you the lifestyle that YOU want. There is going to be nothing worse than you persuing something in the long run that simply won’t make you happy just because it’ll make the people who aren’t in your situation, happy instead. We’re all individuals for a reason – as long as you aren’t making stupid or unsafe decisions (which you shouldn’t be doing anyway if you’re 18+ and not under parental guidance anymore), then it shouldn’t matter.

Typing this out is hard. It’s the reality I WANT but is unfortunately hard to get with the people that live in this world. The other evening I got upset because I came to the realisation that half of the people who you deem as “close” don’t necessarily have kind objectives in being a good friend. There are unfortunately people out there who will take advantage of your kindness and then move on without warning you, making you question yourself as to why you weren’t good enough for them, when in actual fact they are the ones who have the issues. I’m sharing this not to put these problems on you, but to reach out to people that may be feeling the same and don’t want to be involved in any bitchiness or foul play.

Me and a close friend met up last week and we hadn’t seen each other for over 2 years. She was my closest friend in secondary school until she left for college and I stayed to do sixth form. I picked her up that morning and it was as if we had never spent 2 years away from one another. The laughter was the same, the conversation was the same – there was lots of that, that’s for sure! and she just made me realise that there are a few gems out there who will keep your respect and hold onto it no matter how long you have to wait to see each other. Friends grow up, they move on, but some people need to learn the right ways in communicating that.

I don’t want you leaving this post thinking of negative things, or feeling defeated because you feel like you’ve been in the same situation. Regardless of who is in your life and how they make you feel, you ARE good enough, and no one but yourself is capable of changing your mindset to this way. When you can acknowledge this, you’ll go far, and those that tried to make you feel worthless or confused will be wiped out.

Have the best weekend with a positive mindset, and I’ll see you all on Monday!
