Transparency & self medication

I have started to write quite allot of late as a means of self medicating. A few of my close friends may have noticed that I have been a little more transparent and ….yes that is correct ! I have chosen to try my best to be a little more open and not feel like I have to hide my feelings especially times when I am struggling or going through difficult situations. I am choosing to be more open and honest and I tell you it takes courage. This is not something that has come overnight…it has been and is an on going process.
Too much head space is taken up worrying what people may think, what they will say….will they judge…….I will just leave it their for you to ponder on that one….
I am not saying I tell everyone my business but simply if someone asks me how I am doing I give a honest answer instead of trying to fluff it up, and quite frankly doing that is only for the other persons benefit !
I wonder how many times we say we are fine when we are far from it ourselves ?
I feel we really have to get to a point in life where we just need to what I call ‘do me’
and I mean completely and wholeheartedly be comfortable in your own skin. Be a little bit more confident each day and grow into being the best version of you.
We all deserve to be happy and free but a part of this starts with us realising the limitations we put on ourselves and our potential that is waiting to rise.
Recently experiencing grief at the loss of a very close family member has had me wanting to live the best version of me even more in a weird kind of way. Its given me a little nudge and push..in a positive light.
Life is simply too short and lets face it… tomorrow is not guaranteed for any of us. So why not live your best life today ? For me an element of it means taking a deep breath, being open and honest and getting my thoughts out in some way or another. Writing and blogging has helped me so much, and so happy my passion has started again for writing poetry.
I (no longer choose and yes it is my choice) to hide away or feel I cant express myself when I am not feeling 100% or not myself. I will find some way of releasing what is in my head and for me it is helping a whole lot writing and sharing with you all.
Truth be it life is not always the happy picture and the perfect life. Sometimes we go through real tough stuff. Its not a negative thing…its a real life thing. And that’s fine as In every situation there is something that can either pull you up or down.
And its ok to pause for a short while….but make sure you GET BACK UP !
Lots a love xx
