The Struggle Is Real


 I've thought about erasing the constant rambling that is my previous posts. But I'm not going to. I always talk about sharing the highs and lows of my illness, but, I never really do share my lows. It's hard. I try to be professional, and I think about what an employer might see when they are referred to my website. Of course I want to put my best foot forward, but, I have two feet. 

We all do. 

Every single one of us has a side we don't really want the rest of the world to see. It harbors our negative thoughts, insecurities, and feelings... Our secret hopes and dreams... It harbors the pieces of us that haven't been woven into the fabric yet. Our best foot, our best side, is what we've decided to show the world. The parts we're proud of and the things we want to share with other people. 

Carl Jung's shadow theory is an interesting read. I recommend it, especially to those who are suffering from any mental illness.

The fact is though, within my hidden self lies a million different sides. I never know who I'm going to be, what I'm going to be like, or what I'm going to like. I'm never the same person one day to the next. But you know what? That's fine. Ice been struggling for the past couple months, maybe years, to be a stronger and healthier person. I'm on a healing journey and it's not going to happen over night. There are going to be good days and there are going to be bad days. That's life. Maybe I'll have more bad days than good, but I'll work through them.

Because no matter what, we just keep going.
