I live alone. I am challenged to manage my mental health sometimes
more than others. I can take care of what I need to take care of in my day-
and yet right now, I have a disruption to my work schedule and I find
myself having a lot of free time. It's given me pause and time to
see how I struggle to keep from letting my loneliness color and influence my
behavior. I have given up drinking - but I find myself reaching for food and reaching
out to friends and family with texts and phone calls. I guess it's all pretty normal.
I can put it in perspective thinking that, now that it's evening time, I will get out again
tomorrow with the appointment I have and then will get back to work either tomorrow or the next day.
But I seriously think it's important to be in touch with others - at least for me it is - when managing my health.
Being alone for too much time also sends you down a road where you kind of get 'idiosyncratic' and 'eccentric' and that
can ultimately make you isolated more and more
but I think that I just have to remember I'll go out again tomorrow and interact with people around town
and my family and friends. It's mostly online and by phone but that kind of isolation also manifests action -
'mother necessity.' Thank god I am starting to do that. Learning to understand and be ok with the flexible nature
I want today to be clear of all that is not positive, acknowledge and let the 'its' slide away as breathing out.I want to find/think/breathe in all the good in my life.I want to take in all that is around me using all of my 5 senses.I want to change what I can, accept what I can'tI want everyone who reads this post to find peace and have a good day.I want to complete my daily chore for the week:...
I didn't know until today how truly unwanted I am here. I could totally explain but I would be stuck putting a TW on it and just no thanks! All I can say is it seriously makes leaving so much easier! I don't think I can even claim to have friends here but eh, my son and I will be out of their hair soon enough. Fresh Start! Here we come!! See? No TW lol
