Let’s Talk About Mental Health
For a lot of us, 2020 has been the most challenging year. For me, there's been the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. Currently I'm experiencing the lows.
This may not even be the right time or place to talk about this. It may even be all too personal for you to care. I should probably just take all of this to therapy (trust me, I'm gonna do that too). However, I spend everyday with you on the air. When I'm on the air, I always try to be real - it's like main philosophy being radio personality. The truth is though, reality isn't always positive. So I since I'm here to keep real, I just want to say that I'm not okay right now.
I deal with a lot of anxiety that sometimes feels like it's far too much for my little self to handle. I quite literally feel like there's so much built up inside me that it overflows and then that's when I start crying. It's hard to focus on anything else when you're sad af. Seriously, it took me four hours to write this. Of course, some days are easier than others but when it hits it hits!
In efforts to stay positive, I'm really trying take care of myself, aka self care. Self care comes in many forms and that includes going easy on ourselves during hard times like this. We have to ease up on the some of the pressures we impose on ourselves because life is hard sometimes. It's okay to admit that. It's okay to not to be okay. Peace and love, ya'll.
