i decided to write a blog about my recovery and my struggles with mental health issues. occasionally, i write about other things, such as ideas i find interesting and think about, or random thoughts and ponderings.
i have struggled with mental health issues my whole life. i’m working on overcoming an eating disorder, dealing with my depression, ptsd, and anxiety, and trying to find my place in the world.
i’ve always written, but sharing it is new. doing so makes me feel lighter. if i share my thoughts, i no longer have to carry them with me. plus, sometimes writing things out gives me a bit of insight or teaches me something.
having a commitment to write and post is a good thing as well. it helps me to stay in the now, it keeps me accountable, and it produces a tangible result that i can point to and say “see, this is mine. i did this.”
it’s one step towards living a fuller life.
thanks for taking the time to check it out.
