My unhealthy experience with mental health.

I’ve heard that heartbreaks are good for you. They show you who you are, they make you stronger and wiser.

But no one talks about the time which comes in between. Right from your heart breaks up until you become stronger and wiser.

For me, it was an intense experience, to say the least.

I think this is the time where you realise your true potential to thrive or to drown.

Heartbreak left me in a dark, dark place. I could feel the force pulling me into a black hole which seemed to get deeper and deeper with each passing moment.

All the while I kept thinking, how can someone possibly get out from this place. And that I was screwed.

After almost 2 days of on and off crying, screaming, shit-thinking and counselling, I ran away from the place which had turned me into a borderline ill person and went home. To my safe place.

Sat alone. And made a choice.

It was quite simple actually. I chose to let it go. Because I chose to thrive.

Whatever mess you think you’re in, however deep it may be, there is always a way out. Only you can help yourself. So go ahead, give it your all. To that job, relationship or whatever it is you are struggling for.

Don’t be afraid to hit the rock bottom. But make sure when you do, you make a choice, to thrive and rise up, stronger and wiser.

Nothing in this world is worth giving a shit if it makes you unhappy. Sure people are all wired differently and it takes sacrifice and adjustments to make things work.

But if you think it’s affecting your mental health, trust me and let it all go. You are enough.

You are everything.

Lots of love,

Brown girl on a budget 🙂

    Oh well mental health issues are tricky but I speak from personal experience when I say that’s where we need to become stronger. Don’t avoid doing the important things to be through with those feelings because keeping it inside is more painful in the long run… Dealing with them is tough but brushing them under the carpet is disastrous..
