Hey Tribe! *throws confetti*
Today is the day to celebrate the little victories in life. If you read this, feel free to reply about all of your victories either today or in the past couple of days.
- I woke up and managed to get out of bed 15 minutes later (it takes forever for me to usually get out of bed)
- I found a CD that I haven’t seen in ages and was able to listen to it.
- I got to drink coffee without feeling super jittery.
- I managed to shower and get personal hygiene done today.
And last but not least…
5. I compromised with my parents.
For those of you who have lots of disagreements about anything with your relatives, friends, or anyone, you might be able to relate to this statement. My whole life is one gigantic compromise! So maybe it took me sitting in a pile of my hair and them overhearing me rant to one of my best friends. But we had a conversation, and they realized just how bad things had gotten with my mental health. While they aren’t completely on board with a lot of my ideas and beliefs, we are taking steps, and I thought I would sit and take the time to enjoy the good in this situation. The high of the Ferris Wheel (if you get that reference, kudos to you! Love that movie 🙂 )
What was the compromise?
A hair cut.
I don’t get the full treatment that I want (which will help me be completely unable to pull my hair . . . and no, it does not concern dismembering anyone. How could you think something like that? 😉 ), but we are fixing the issue of my neck feeling like it’s suffocating twenty-four seven.
Constantly, my life has been looking for the middle ground with my parents, and rarely do we come to an absolute agreement like this, so, I thought I’d celebrate.
Also, sunshine!!! How I’ve missed your smiling face!
*realizes there may still be people reading*
*coughs* Anyways… I’ve been trying lately to count my blessings and realize the good in my life, even if it is something as small as my eyebrows being perfectly symmetrical right after I roll out of bed (best feeling ever!). Or the ability to accidentally flick the light switch right in the middle between on and off. Silly things, important things, and trust me, there are some days when I feel like I’m putting on a mask when I say that I’m thankful for some of my victories. I need my therapist to remind me constantly of all of the small victories I have.
Thanks for listening y’all and hope you have a great week!
