Currently, I am on a steady road to recovering. I’m working on bettering myself, physically and mentally. It’s definitely a long process but I’m willing to do anything and everything to be in the place where I wanna be, also known as happiness.
One of the first stops to this route is removing anything or anyone toxic from my life. They only bring me negative emotions rather than positive ones, so why should I keep letting them impact me like that when it’s only going to keep hurting me in the long run.
The next stop is staying off social media. Social media has had an impact on my emotions for many years. I see one thing that I dislike and immediately my mood snaps, turning into anger or sadness. It’s even been both at times.
Next is not letting things get to me. I can’t let anyone jeopardize my happiness, it won’t get me anywhere but the wrong places in my life.
The second to final one is finding what brings me joy, and what brings me out of my state of sadness. Luckily, I already know what these things are. Music, writing, reading, celebrities I look up to, family and my friends all give me happiness (including much more).
After all of these steps have been completed, it’s time for the finalization of worrying about myself and putting myself first, before anyone. I’ll work on starting to become more confident in myself and not be so insecure, which are my biggest struggles.
I’ll work on telling myself that it’s okay to feel and the only people’s opinions that should matter are the important ones. The ones that want you to be happy and succeed in life. Not the ones who only try to bring you down consistently and don’t help you grow.
This road will be a long bumpy one, but I’m ready. Ready to become the best I can be.
