Our life wisdom for today...
Your mental health is more important than any relationship, job, or friendship. Take care of you.
I am a person who serves women. As I am working with more and more women, I often see we do not prioritize the health of our mind.
And I think it's because, especially from a cultural standpoint, there's a bad wrap around therapy. But I want you to know - you can have Jesus and you can have therapy, too. In fact, I would strongly suggest that you prioritize the health of your mind to maintain a healthy mental state.
Even though I work with women, it’s important to understand “coaches need coaches”. I’m sure you've heard that before. I have people plugged into my life that help me keep my mind in check. And I understand this is my responsibility to prioritize and pursue.
It's easy to make other things more important than our mental wellbeing because many of us have figured out how to reason through difficulties all our lives. But I want you to know there is a safe place for you to rest your head and get the help you need.
Now, in my case, I have a few relationships that I have forged that challenge me in many ways to stay mentally fit and healthy.
I, too, often want to quit.
I, too, often want to give up.
I, too, get frustrated with relationships.
I, too, get frustrated with life.
But I have people around me to help navigate and I am intentional about them being in my life.
I have a life coach, and when I speak with her, we talk about the things that I am dealing with. What I have found just by having that intentional conversation, the pressure valve is released from everyday stress. We have everyday occurrences of things that can get us wrapped up, and we need a safe place to go to help us navigate through.
I also have a relationship with a family member, my dear cousin. I can go to her and just really be open and honest about where I am and what I'm dealing with. That's a very prized relationship to me. She is a safe place. She's a place where there's no judgment, but there is always understanding and sometimes challenge and correction.
I have a mentor in my life that comes along to help me understand the standard of where I want to go and how I need to grow. You see all these relationships work together and are necessary because I am a complicated person.
And before you judge me, I want you to know that you are complicated, too.
Your mental wellbeing is important. Oftentimes we make it a lower priority than everything else going on in our life. And like today's life wisdom said, “It is more important than any relationship.”
Don't give up your mental strength to any relationship. Your mental health is more important than your job. You don't need to give up your mental health to your job. It's more important than any friendship. You do not need to give up your mental health to any friendship.
Here's my challenge for you today,
Really assess how you’ve been prioritizing the needs of your mental health.
What relationships are necessary to help you get to a safe and healthy place, getting the support that you need? And how are you prioritizing & pursuing them?
That's what makes a difference.
Here's our affirmation.
I am divine. I am connected. I am expressive. I am loved. I am strong. I am creative. I am safe.
You’re Good, Sis.
