Protect your space. Guard your heart and your kind. Be careful who you let in and around you. Make sure to protect your many vessels.
It’s okay to be stingy with your time, your body , your mind and anything else that is yours and who you share it with.
Remember reciprocity is key. Watch how other treat you and speak to you in regards to how you do for them. If it’s totally left and doesn’t match what you put it in it may not be genuine.
It’s not worth your sanity to stay involved with those who don’t enrich you and help you prosper/grow in some form. Surely no man is an island, we learn n need some social interaction to a certain degree. Don’t be mistaken though, never stay in an uncomfortable space whether it be a relationship or interaction just for the sake of it. If it doesn’t help you and can possibly be changing you for the worse break it off.
Lastly protect your mind. Only allow positive thoughts and try to stay motivated. If discouraged try to get motivated. Try different avenues for uplifting your mood and sense of well being. Some suggestions I can recommend that I do: therapy(mental health is crucial), pray/meditate, read uplifting books, partake in creative activities or anything that helps to keep you going.
Side note : Nothing is wrong with you if you go to therapy. It’s okay if you feel the need to go talk to someone and sort out what’s going on in your head and your feelings etc. Therapy is very helpful when it comes to helping with health and wellness. The great takeaways I feel exist from this are: ability to vent, have someone listen and help you understand what you’re going through from a different perspective along w some possible solutions. Please don’t feel you’re less than, unworthy or crazy if you go to therapy. If perhaps you decide you don’t want to go you don’t have to. Above all else find the perfect means for you to keep your mental health in check.
