Everyday Resolutions

Happy New Year! I hope you all enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones.

I never establish New Years resolutions per se; however, I believe in continuous personal growth and becoming better every single day.

Things I’m scraping:

  • Allowing others to bring me down
  • One-way friendships/giving people too many chances
  • Comparing myself to others/feeling inadequate
  • Not putting myself first (sleepless nights, etc.)
  • Pressure to be “normal” (no need to follow others’ status quo)

Things I’m embracing:

  • Spending quality time with the best people
  • More travel (duh, it’s me!)
  • Volunteering more
  • Gaining 10+ pounds

Depression

I’m going to come right out and say it: I have depression. I’ve known that something was “off” since I was about 10 years old, but things really took a turn for the worst when I was 17. And at 26, things are REALLY BAD and have been since late 2018.

During my routine spring cleaning in November, I decided to go through some old photos. While recalling memories of how my family once was, I felt numb. I kind of shrugged it off like, “well that was nice, but it’s in the past now.” What really hit me were the photos of how happy I was as a child. I was outgoing, genuinely excited about everything, and didn’t have a care in the world if others thought I was crazy. I was unapologetic 100% of the time.

When did she go on vacation and never return home? How can I get her to come back and visit me, or even stay forever? These are the necessitous things I’d like to know…
