Negative Mindset (Where Have I Been?)
Hello beautiful! You may have noticed that I haven’t published a new blog post in a while. I want to be real and talk about my struggles as much as my achievements on here. So let’s talk about my negative mindset and why I haven’t posted much lately.
To be honest, I spiraled into a negative mindset lately. I didn’t feel comfortable writing in that state. There were lots of personal issues going on that I had been dealing with and it took up all of my energy in a negative way. I needed a break from social media and the internet so I took a break from blogging as well.
My Negative Mindset.
With all the stress of the pandemic and knowing there are so many suffering from sickness and loneliness as well as dealing with family issues, it has been a hard month. I know a lot of you can relate. So I wanted to talk about my break and how it affected my spiritual journey.
The truth is, breaks are necessary. Throughout life, you are going to hit some bumps in the road. Whether you are practicing spirituality or self-love or not, this is normal. But it’s important to listen to yourself while healing and moving on from certain situations. We have to figure out the ways that help us cope with stressful situations. That’s what this journey is all about; accepting our feelings and learning ways that make you feel better.
I was feeling very anxious, emotionally drained, and not motivated to get out of bed in the mornings. I even stopped doing yoga and I lost my appetite for a while. The feeling of depression was hitting me hard and it was so strong, it took so much out of me.
But I knew that it would pass. Even though I felt like it was never-ending, I kept telling myself that this won’t last forever and I will get through this. Although I felt hopeless in so many ways, I never lost my motivation to love myself. I knew I would feel happy again.
When I was ready I started doing yoga again and I tried to eat as healthy as I could because I knew I needed to push through and take care of myself. And since the pink supermoon in Canada the other night(April 26), I now feel super refreshed and recharged and back to myself more than ever!
Never Give Up!
No matter how far into your spiritual journey or self-love journey you are, there are always going to be downfalls (as there will in any journey in life). But with each downfall, you will learn to grow and cope in new ways. You will continue to become stronger and learn how to take care of yourself when these things happen.
This was not my first downfall whatsoever! You may be thinking wow you’ve handled that so well, that’s so unrealistic. But I’ve been through this before and I’ve always come back stronger and happier. When I’m feeling low, I listen to myself. I write down my feelings and get it all out and accept them.
For me taking a break from social media and my blog helped me to reflect and get back to being myself. I didn’t let my negative mindset get in the way of me feeling my emotions and accepting them. I knew I just needed a break so I took one as long as I needed. This helped me to heal.
No matter how hard it gets, don’t ever stop believe there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. If you keep believing, it will come.
It’s possible to change negative mindset into a positive one. Don’t ever give up.
