Tell Me Something! Let’s Do This Thing!


secret

As we heal through our grief, depression, anxiety, or other pain, we often think extremely low of ourselves.  Perhaps, the word failure is one that pops into our heads daily, if not hourly.  The thoughts of we are not good enough plague our very existence.  This is part of the process of depression, grief, and anxiety.  Our brain is telling us that we are this way, when our soul wants to tell us that we are beautiful people who can do anything if we don’t listen to these voices.  It is very hard not to focus on those thoughts.  I have been there.  I am there now.  But, my dear readers, I want to do something with you that will help us remember who we are as people.  Are you willing to do this with me?  I hope you are.  Let’s not be strangers.  Let’s heal together.  Here it goes…..

The rule is to comment with the good things about you.  You can write what you are good at, what you think is special about you, what good things other people notice about you, etc.  Basically, just comment with at least one good thing about yourself.  It may be hard, but let’s do this.  The healing process begins with this step.  Let’s see how many comments we can get about good things about us.  Let’s get to know how beautiful and special we as people really are.  I want to get to know you, so don’t be afraid to comment!  Say something good about yourself!

One good thing I am good at:  Writing.  Writing is my passion and I was studying journalism for two years before I switched to education.  If I could write all day, I would.  It is sort of my outlet for stress.

Oh gah…..let me just tell you, I was writing like crazy, but when I got to that comment about the good thing about me, I literally just stopped and stared blankly at my computer for a long time.  It is very hard to do, but it’s doable.  Let’s do this thing! Let’s get the positive conversation going!  🙂

  1. I have been following your blog for some time now. I don’t usually comment. But I do understand grief. I might not understand what it is to lose parents and the enormity of that. But I have faced loss in other ways.

    I found that making people laugh helped me. I would joke around and people would have a few lighter moments away from their daily troubles. This, in turn, helped me channel my grief into something productive. The fact that I can make someone happy, made me happy.

    1. Thank you for your comment! Making people laugh is huge in helping a person feel better. I agree that making someone happy makes you happy in return. I try to ensure that I am helping my students who are in need. When I give them something they need and the smile lights up their face, I get happy in return. Giving a kiddo a pair of shoes or jacket is no big deal!
