Hello readers, an impromptu, rather short post here.
If you haven’t guessed by the title, I’ve been doing a little bit of Yoga lately. Now I’ve only had 2 sessions, but I’ve had lots of fun and I want to continue doing it. I don’t know all the proper terminology, but the stretches and positions I’ve done have helped me mentally and physically already. I’m looking forward to seeing what comes from this in the long run.
My reason for taking part in this, is to silence the overwhelming troubles I have with my mental health. I’ve fluctuated a bit the past few months, but lately it’s not been very nice. I’m trying my hardest to address things, as opposed to bottling things up, but it’s slow progress.
Tonight we did some Yoga, and I hoped to clear my mind from this week’s struggles. Despite the intention being for everyone to feel happy and stress free, all I felt was an overwhelming sadness. Pure, raw pain. I’d unlocked everything I’d hidden away for a long time. It was hard not to cry.
At some point, I may do a “tell-all” post series, where I speak up about certain things, get it out there and off my chest. But for now I’m going to work on fixing my brain (again).
That’s all for now – I’ll possibly write updates on my Yoga progress, and I’ll definitely talk more about my mental health soon. If you can relate, just know you’re not alone and I love you all.
