Have you ever had one of those days where you feel worthless? Lost and alone? Like nothing you ever say or do will matter to anyone?
I'm having that day. I struggle with anxiety and depression, and today is just one of those times where it kind of overtakes me. So if you're having that day, know you're not alone. When I feel like that, I take stock of the beautiful things in my life, like my daughters. Good books. Lifelong friendships. Chocolate. My obnoxious and hilarious family. A roof over my head. Tylenol for those raging headaches. The beach.
I don't know what you're thankful for, but make your list. Don't let those feelings of worthlessness take over. It's not you--you are wonderful. It's our brain chemistry messing with us.
Make your list and repeat it like a mantra. Give all the bad feels the finger. Find joy. Seek medical help if you need to, because this is nothing to be ashamed of. Your happiness is worth fighting for.
