So yes, I am sharing from one human soul to another.
Our soul is comprised of our minds, will, and emotions.
That space, at times, for a variety of reasons can be very dark.
There was a lowest of periods when one of my family members really struggled with the darkness. Her mind seemed determined to delve into the pit of worry, anxiety, panic attacks, restlessness, night terrors. There were bouts of fretful tears and worry.
No we were sad.
Truth is, this type of mental battle impacts more than individual. And on that note, it can impact any individual. By His grace, sanity belongs to us. Perhaps, you too have walked this road for yourself or held up a loved one on the journey.
This courageous soul found her way.
To each his/her own path.
My loved one did not desire to be medicated. Medication for her would have added an extra layer of fear. This is not a prescriptive piece of advisement regarding what is right for another. This was simply her journey, her choice. She beat it her way. She is still beating it. The included video gives the details of a major source of her strength.
Particularly during this time,
Be safe mentally.
And again, do it your way.
For some, that may include this resource, therapy, an accountability partner, intentional times of rebooting, a staycation, allowing yourself to need help, a release of perfectionist ways, an inhale/exhale, a few "no" responses for the time being, a good soul-cleansing cry, etc.
