Today, I am thankful.

Just before I’ve almost had a massive panic attack. Which can be pretty ‘normal’ at the evening time especially.

While about to panic the fuck out, something in my mind just screamed ITS ONLY ANXIETY!! You know exactly why this is happening, you’re tired and your body doesn’t feel great because of that! Even just acknowledging that lifted some weight off my shoulders! Then I just said to myself that I am comfortable, and guess what, I started to feel more comfortable
The panic lifted so fast as I began to be thankful for my amazing and healthy body.
All of sudden I become more mindful of all these great things that happened yesterday and that are constantly happening in my life! There are so many things that I can be thankful for right now!
Gratitude might not ‘fix’ my mental illness, but it helps me to cope so much! It is such a great self-care practise!

    Using gratitude to fight back the mental illness is a beautiful and powerful action. It’s not always easy to be positive, you must be proud of you for that.

    Gratitude makes such a difference. Also being your own best friend. Celebrate every little victory. Pat yourself on the back. Take care of yourself because you do know that it will happen more when you are tired and not eating well. There may be no cure but you can manage it with a lot of hard work.

    Today I am feeling very negative things about the way I was treated by a person with whom he had friendship for over 10 years. I expected to have had more consideration and that made me sad all day …
    But I repeat endlessly “I love Jesus” and “Thank you to be working in my life!”
