“mental health problems don’t define who you are. they are something you experience. you walk in the rain and you feel rain but, importantly, YOU ARE NOT RAIN.” yep.
and sometimes it pours.
even then, you are not rain.
i shared this quote in my story a couple days ago + it resonated with many of you.
and as a person who is a FEEELER, i can confess—it’s so easy to get caught up in your emotions. a practice i do to help with some of those heavy emotions is to give myself 2 minutes to sit with it. check in. why am i feeling this way? what is triggering this? and to choose to see the joy in this.
sometimes i don’t know how to answer those check ins. some days it’s easy breezy. but wanted you to know, be gentle with yourself, love. you are not rain.
you are the sun (as christina yang would put it). shine on, babe and count it ALL joy
because YOU ARE SO WORTHY.
ps. arizona has been spoiling me with this ridiculously great weather — and palm trees. i mean, palm trees just makes life brighter. right?! - 2 hours ago
