How I Moved Away from Depression
I was eating junk. I felt like shit. I got depressed. My clothes didn't fit. I did not feel good at all. I would look in the mirror, and not that I hated what I saw, but I had done to myself...the way that I felt. I just didn't recognize myself anymore. I knew that there was something off.
It took me a while to recognize that there was something off, for me to be aware of these negative patterns that formed on a positive feedback loop. Trying to understand how to get back to feeling how good, happy, and carefree I was before. There ended up being lots of factors in my life that I recognized as contributors to this confusion I had --about who I was in those moments vs who I thought I believed myself to be.
I threw myself on a path to healing. I was open to trying new things that might help me change. I started moving my body with intention, meditating with intention, reading psychology books with intention, eating with intention, intentionally surrounding myself with good people, nourishing myself with the intention to be the person I wanted to be.
I didn’t let depression label me into certain behaviors. I didn’t want people to treat me differently because of my “diagnosis.” I knew I had to change my behavior and it started with identifying myself as a person with the habits and traits I desired (or really knew I possessed). I take action as I AM that person.
If you’re tired of feeling confused or off, and feeling like there’s more to life and that you could be doing more… Send me a message. I am here for you!
