I’ve been talking to a new guy who has his share of mental health problems and I said in a previous text that as far as trauma goes, it’s funny how healing and growth aren’t linear but they are still things we strive for. He asked me what I was working on. I was thrown back most people don’t ask the hard questions when it comes to bipolar or any mental illness for that matter.
Apparently he was asking me what assignments I was working on at work for school but I thought I would share the things I am healing from and growing for. It’s important to know what you’re striving for and if you don’t, you should reassess your situation and what not.
Things I am working on:
-my gambling addiction. Still sober, but it takes time to rebuild trust that was lost.
-debt. I recently went on a small spending spree but as much as that sets me back, I am trying to look at the positives and get ready for this next year 2023.
-my mental health. This kinda goes without saying. I have been in a rut for a long time but once Friday hits after Thanksgiving, I will call to get an appointment.
-my physical health. this is a hard one for me but I am just waiting on my cpap mask to get here so I can take my sleep into my own hands and actually sleep for once. As for other health, I have been eating better and in smaller quantities. I need to restart my gym membership; well, it’s still active, I just need to go to the gym.
-writing more. Whether it be on or off the blog, that way I can process some emotions in an extremely honest and candid way and be able to interpret them and find a solution.
This list is a work in progress… clearly but I wanted to get started on it. Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it ❤ I am thankful for each of you.
