It hasn't been your day, week, month or even year!

Life has a way of making you seem so small yet so mighty. No one really understands the power you have until they see you do things they never thought possible. Now I'm not saying you're lifting cars off people or defeating the dark lord (Harry Potter fans know what's up) but sometimes just getting out of bed after having a depressing state is worthy of some celebration. The saying "you're just having a bad day not a bad life" is very accurate. People often forget that one bad day doesn't justify the rest of their life. You're allowed to be sad, or upset or moody, but don't let it control you. Everyone has bad days, that's life, but it's what you make of it that shows the strength you have. No one expects you to brush it off and move on, they also don't expect it to consume you forever. There's a happy medium somewhere, you just have to figure it out. The best thing to do when you're sad is talk it out, whether you talk to a family member, a friend a therapist or even yourself, don't hold anything in, it just makes coping with it worse. Now most people hate saying the T word, they think if you are seeing a therapist you must be crazy! That could not be further from the truth! Sometimes having someone else who doesn't know you as well as your friends or family makes it easier for you to talk to them. They can't go by who you were in the past. You're a clean slate to them and they can understand you better knowing you don't have to "cover up the crazy". therapy isn't laying on a couch while some dude in a suite over analyzes your thoughts and shows you weird ink blobs. Therapy is more about your mental well being and how to be able to cope with everyday stress, Personally I believe everyone should have someone to talk to who won't judge you, or try to change you. Just someone who is willing to listen and give advice when needed. We as a society don't realize how much we hold in until you speak to someone you have no ties to. Therapy isn't something to be ashamed of, more than 50% of the population see a therapist and many have said their lives are much better because of it. Especially during these weird times, talking to someone can really help with the everyday triggers that can mess with your mental and psychical health, such as work, school, and relationships. We don't always have to be strong, sometimes it's nice to have someone lift the weight off our shoulders. Talking to a therapist can help you in so many ways, you just have to take the first step, it starts with you! ❤
