September’s keepsakes and memories|3mins read

Hey there,

I am totally excited about how far we have come,actually Thank God for the far He has brought us.

Happy October loves,

What keepsakes and memories did August bring your way?

Let me totally honest by saying I feel naked and vulnerable by writing this.

Because I am staying true to self and the  purpose of this blog, which is to connect and find blessings and bliss regardless of the situation.

I can say this with absolute honesty borrowing Najwa Zeiban’s words,

“You can be a fighter and have pain inside of you.You can be a hero and live with trauma.You can be brave and still need a break.”

I felt unbridled depression last month.The depressing part of depression is that it is very depressing.I am very good at building walls and repress whatever hurt I am experiencing.Sometimes it is way easier to smile through it than to admit my pain before others.If only the judgmental looks were exchanged with faces of people willing to listen or someone to be there.

So how I handled it?I attended several mental health meets that helped me with my healing.I am still healing ;infact  life lately is about travel and spaces not forgetting my constant ,God.

I am doing a mental health series with Jade the Novelist that will be concurrently up this month and my friends and I will be having a mental health awareness week at my university.I am so psyched.

Like Najwa Zeiban writes,

You can’t erase what happened to you but you can always decide to put it behind your behind you,under your feet and rise like the hero you are.

The thought of rising like the hero I am

 

But you know the most beautiful thing about this depression is , how dark it is.

It is in this darkness I have found and keep finding light.

From this wealth of experience , I implore you not to bottle up pain within you.You are not alone.Seek healing with somehow (like I am doing).I thank God for keeping me afloat at a time such as this.

I have poems inside of me waiting to be written as I heal.

I am really feeling #fortheJesusChallenge.

I hope you realize when you are in need of healing and never have to repress things and I pray you find the light of healing within your voice.

It will be okay.I hope you believe this too.

    Our healing starts when we agree that there’s a problem. Thank you for sharing Patsy.
    When you’re in the thick of it, just remember to breathe, in and out….and tell yourself that you’re okay. 😊
