For those that have suffered from anxiety, depression, and other mental issues over the years, It's easy for us to get swept away in our daily tasks and commitments, not realizing the reasoning behind our stress and our hard hearts. Once we take the first steps, becoming aware of the feelings within and actively work towards eliminating them from our lives by replacing them with positive attributes, our health and lives will surely improve. I am a living testimony for this, going from the girl that used to have closet fits of rage, throwing objects across the room and kicking and punching walls to someone that is now aware of the benefits of this type of change and willing to share her story with others to encourage personal growth and happiness. The elimination diet is not easy and takes a great deal of hard work and commitment but as you learn to let go of the negative emotions, things WILL get easier. Believe in yourself. You got this.
[[I apologize in advance for the vibes that may come off from this post.]]
The truth is, I am SO ANNOYED with the number of people in my life claiming to be “dead inside.”
“My heart is cold,”
“I died years ago,”
“There's no fixing me, I'm already dead.”
THIS is how you're going to spend your life?
THIS is what you're going to declare over yourself?
STOP being such a f*cking baby.
(Sorry for the language, mom, there's no better adjective for this topic).
These are the same people asking, “Why are you so sweet?” or
“How are you filled with rainbows and unicorns all the time?”
The truth is, I come off as sweet because that's how I want to present myself to the world.
Life IS hard for everyone.
It's a challenge.
We're meant to learn lessons in order to grow.
I have just as many bad days as you. I have lost just as many people to cancer and disease, have just as much debt, anxiety, worries, plain old bad stuff that happens to me too.
Life is what you make of it.
You create your own reality.
If you want to be dead inside and cut your precious time on this beautiful earth short (it's already short enough) then by all means go on and continue your sad, depressing, “woe-is-me,” negativity, feeding off of your sick-and-tired self.
You can get back on that horse (or bike) and make the decision to change your life for the better.
Be a warrior. Be strong. Be bold. Be courageous.
Release your emotions and open up your heart.
Recognize the potential within yourself.
Believe in yourself.
Make it about you.
(There are people out there willing to help).
Read a book.
Follow an uplifting blog.
Get a hobby.
Color in a coloring book.
Spend time outside in nature.
Get enough sleep.
Let go of all the negative things that happened in your past.
Forgive those that hurt you.
Stop worrying about tomorrow...
There's no need to be anxious for tomorrow or the next day.
Take life a day at a time.
Learn who you are.
Go back to your childhood.
Remember your roots.
Take control of your life.
Allow your heart to grow.
For the love of all things, please stop declaring “death” over your soul.
