Every day is tough!
My psychiatrist is trying to re-build rapport with me, after my meds were notably ineffective during a major life event.
I appreciate his efforts, and we will “get there again,” I’m sure.
More on my difficulties…
I am anxious an awful lot! But, what I describe as anxiety is much more than that. It’s psychosis (as far as I can tell), but I am not a mental health professional.
The people in my life seem to be there because they want to be, and since none of them are causing any harm, they are all welcome!
It has taken me years to fully understand and appreciate a non-toxic life. And, this has included years of learning how to implement boundaries, and know the difference between what is healthy and unhealthy for me.
Interestingly enough, politics has helped in clarifying what I personally believe and what others do as well. This matters a lot when it comes to protecting my mental health.
So, while I don’t discard the people who aren’t causing any harm, I do adamantly disagree with my friends who follow Conservative politics.
But, just because we disagree, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t get along.
Some of my best friends and closest family members and I share different politics, and that’s okay!
As I spend every day, doing some kind of reading up on the state of our world, I do consider myself fairly well-informed.
But, that just means I’m not taking anyone’s crap!
Anyway, am I happier this way?
For being informed, yes. For what it is doing to me, probably not.
Are you informed and truly so? Do you consider yourself happy amid the world’s troubles?
Thanks for reading and I hope whatever holidays you celebrate or don’t celebrate, go well for you!
