The past week or so has been physically, emotionally, and spiritually draining. Depression and anxiety has reared its ugly head way more than normal and being under the weather added an extra vexing of my spirit. I’m an introvert through and through, but my desire to tune the world out and just sit in my own head space is something that I’ve wanted to do now more than ever. I cherish my moments to myself where I can get a little more clarity without the noise and chaos of the world and I’m thankful for regular talks with my therapist who help me to rationalize it all.
I often wonder when I will ever reach my “normal”. A point where there is balance in my world and it all starts to make sense. It’s almost like a double pan balance scale and sadness and pain has had one side weighed down for a while. Although this may have been my reality for a while now, I must say that I have never nor will I ever (if I can help it) let my kids ever see or be affected by my pain. Depression is a daily battle that must be taken one day at a time and I know in due time this will all be a thing of the past. So as a reminder to myself and anyone else fighting a battle similar to mine, I say, “CHIN UP, OR THE CROWN SLIPS”👑❤️ **Artwork by sd_creative (IG)**
