Why I am thankful this time around.. Many would not have guessed that 4yrs ago I was going through a rough fight with depression, anxiety, and what I thought to be my mind slipping away. Though I never made any attempts I was on "suicide watch" because at the time I saw no way through the anguish I felt. To be perfectly honest, I was embarrassed! The guy that could find a silver lining in any cloud was overtaken by the storm. I felt alone and I was scared, completely unsure if I would make it through the day without falling apart. Would I make it through the day to the next day.Perspective is a powerful tool when used correctly. Thanks to family and friends who stayed close through that time and thanks to the grace of God I am not in that place. I can look back and see why it all came to that point. I learned a lot! Life is worth living. I knew that all a long though, I just lost my focus for a while. I learned that in order to be accepted and loved being myself is ok, my blemished not always perfect self. Overthinking is definitely never the answer! One thing that was hard to grasp is that the actions of others are not always intentionally hurtful but sometimes it is hard to see past your self and the ramifications to others by those actions. Forgiving others is really about me, I am the one who becomes free. There is beauty in all the brokenness. Most importantly, I learned that tomorrow is always another day. Live for the moment. Breathe. Give it a day, a week, a month, and then a year – it will all change. Nothing can replace friends and family, let them in to who you are. Lastly, if nothing else find anything that makes you smile and focus on that.To my friends and family who have been with me through all this with me, it is you I am thankful for. My friends who are just joining, thank you for the support you have given me in this part of my life. I am thankful for your friendship.#happythanksgiving #latergram #repost #flasbackfriday #thankful #thanksgiving #stillthankful #still
