Hey guys! I am very sorry that I have been MIA since the last time that I posted. I am currently going into my fourth week of classes of my last semester. So as you all can imagine things have been quite hectic for me, especially with getting settled with my everyday schedule and back into the swing of things. However along with this, for the past few weeks I have also found it sort of hard to try and write. Not only have I been physically busy, but so has my mind and I’ll admit not always in the most positive ways. With my life so rapidly changing each day before my eyes, it has certainly taken a huge toll on my mental health lately. Which is why I couldn’t exactly find the motivation to sit down and write. But I decided since that is the very reason that I have been so absent lately, why not just take a shot at sitting down and writing about it to see how it goes.
Mental health is something that many of us have difficulties with keeping up with, especially when we have so much going on in our lives we may just push it off or avoid acknowledging it. To be honest, I don’t know about some of you but personally I feel that acknowledging my mental health a bit scary sometimes making it hard for me to address it. Mental health struggles are completely normal for basically everyone (even those who say otherwise) so it is okay to to the things that we need to do in order to maintain it. It becomes especially important to make sure that we do not ignore maintaining our mental stability during times of lots of life changes and stress which is something that I am still learning each day. Not to talk about it as necessarily something that can be “controlled” because it is hard to try and control our minds. Our minds go where they want, when faster than we can even process what is going on in them.
