So what I'm working on right now is really just responding better to things and trying to speak less/let the things that come out of my mouth be good things. It's really really hard. A lot of times my immediate reaction to things is anger, and it's not always justified. Sometimes it doesn't even make sense. It's different anger though, like I don't feel like I'm a cat and everyone else is a yarn ball anymore. It's more constructive than just being vindictive and manipulative as i was when my brain was cold soup. I find i get angry because of passion, and passion is really a driving force for most of my decisions.
|"I spent so long feeling guilty, feeling ashamed of my sadness, and you know what? It just made me sadder. You are allowed to be sad, you are allowed to be angry, you're allowed to be depressed. We all deserve to feel our own sadness in our own time.|
Something you will have heard before - you deserve to be happy. That, of course, is not always easy to hear, especially in the depths of depression - so let me add something. You deserve to be happy - but you don't have to be happy right now or all the time.
It is okay to be sad, it's okay to not be ready to be happy yet. One day you will be ready to recover - that day doesn't have to be today or even tomorrow, as long as you know and trust me that it will come.
It's okay not to be okay."
