It’s Tuesday and that means that I forgot to blog on Sunday. Well, more like after midnight Sunday which means Monday. 😉
I actually have an alarm set to remind me to blog and yet here I am, blogging for Sunday on a Tuesday.
I spent the weekend with my mom. I just took the girls with me because the boys are so rambunctious and I really wanted some calm. I know it seems like I have it all together but if you are a frequent reader of my blogs then you know that’s not entirely true. I definitely have my days.
Everyone is talking about self care and how important it is but fail to realize that some people may not have support and some people have support but not in the way they need it. I really wish that people realize that there are levels to support and more importantly, when offering or giving support it is in the way that the person or people need it not just how you want to give it.
I have a whole support system but sometimes I don’t know how I need support. I have my husband who is there to support me in raising the children and maintaining the household. I have my mom who is my support in wisdom and guidance. I have my sister who is my listening ear. I have my best friend who is my cheer up buddy. But sometimes I need support in maintaining my calm.
For those who do not know I have anxiety. Like really bad. And while my doctor is my support she cannot hold my hand all the time. So, I decided, in addition to eating healthier and aiming to live a less sedentary life, to medicate. No. It’s 100% legal. 😇 It took me awhile to come to grips that there is a part of me that I cannot control because, well, it’s me. But I have no shame in addressing areas that are beyond my control… for now.
I am making this blog, not just for the regular transparency and showing that you are not alone in your daily tasks and struggles, but to also reaffirm that it is okay to get help whatever that may look like for you. Because while the world may want us to believe that we are all one in the same, we are in fact very different. Sharing our stories helps to heal and free others and this is mine.
