My mental health has been significantly more stabilized this year, but it’s still a struggle. I am still going through the cycle of grief with my divorce, both of my kid’s experiencing big emotions because of their world changing, and my eating disorder has been flairing up. All of these things take up a lot of mental space.
I have weekly therapy sessions and ketamine infusions. I put a lot of effort into keeping up the momentum of progress because I’m terrified that I’ll slip back into another depressive episode.. but all that effort is exhausting. I forgot that resting is also a part of healing.
For the next week I’m going to focus more on resting and self care and putting less pressure on myself to grow.
Be well, be kind, remember to rest
