I stress the importance of taking care of one’s mental health, especially during times as these. If you weren’t depressed before, I’m sure you may have experienced it since the pandemic. I’ve suffered from depression for years, and although the hardships I’ve faced in recent months were hard on me, I was able to manage. Unfortunately, many people aren’t so lucky. It can be extremely difficult going from something to nothing. It can be even more difficult when you’re suffering in silence and you’re alone, with the latter being the worst.
Rather than ask for help or tell someone how you feel, instead you tell yourself it’s over! However, it doesn’t have to be! There are so many ways you can survive and cope with unforeseen circumstances, so don’t think that “checking out,” is your only way out! There are people who can help you, and guess what? They WANT to! Things may look bad, but whatever you do, don’t give up! A quote I love by Franklin D. Roosevelt says, “When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot in it and hang on.”
Are you feeling troubled or overwhelmed by your problems? Take a deep breath, regroup, and tell the enemy, “knot today!” 🙂
Until next time my NOTE takers!
