So let’s get real for a second. If you follow me on Instagram (which you should. Do it, do it now) you’ll know I often get unwanted visits from my dear friends Anxiety and Depression. Well last weekend, the formidable duo were here in full force and while I was having an internal battle with those bad boys I also had all the external stress of feeling like I wasn’t going through enough to justify feeling this way, having to explain that I ‘sometimes get sad for no reason’ to my love interest and then realising very quickly that said love interest was only interested when everything was fine and dandy. A hard pill to swallow.
But luckily for me, I have friends and sometimes you find strength from the most unlikely of places. Last weekend, a dear friend, an acquaintance I met through blogging and a stranger I’d never met pulled me through and got me out of my funk. I then took the rest of the week to go back to basics and ask myself: what am I grateful for, what makes me truly happy and what is my purpose in life. And reflecting on those three questions I found inner strength and peace that I’ll try my very best to hold on to.
