WORDS OF WISDOM FROM MENTAL HEALTH ?
We are only human after all, and nothing in our instruction manuals or in our description before we were born promises that we will always be positive or feel happy all the time. Yet, we carry this unrealistic pressure on ourselves to be so and often berate ourselves for falling short any time a bad mood strikes.
It’s tempting to only put our best foot forward. For example, on social media, we often share our best moments proudly but may be less inclined to share our feelings when we are feeling negative. If not for wanting to hide our own seemingly fruitless negativity from others and even ourselves, we might also fear spreading the bad mood to others.
It’s important to appreciate ourselves similarly for all our aspects and to forgive ourselves for even the lowest facets of our self.
