Without work stress I found myself with an abundance of time to think.
Time to feel.
Time to realize how unhealthy my mental landscape was.
Time to get embarrassed for ignoring scary parts of my thoughts & behavior.
Time to feel regret for thinking mental health was a character flaw.
Time to fear that I might never be ‘normal’.
Time to ruminate on how much this sucks.
Time to feel worthless.
Time to get frustrated that I’m not improving.
Time to give the process a shot.
Time to trust other’s advice.
Time to learn from others.
With time, comes growth.
