I’ve hit the wall and that’s ok.

I’m really great at being self employed. I manage my time well, I’m efficient and disciplined, and I always get the work done to a high standard. And of all that I’m proud.

Today, like many others I’m sure, I’m off it. I can’t be arsed doing ANYTHING. I’m not low in mood or anxious, I just can’t be bothered.

So for this morning, I’ve moved my chair into the sun, I’ve made a fresh coffee, and I’m basking like a cat in the warmth.

I’m not going to batter the wall, hurdle it or “crush it”.

I’m going to rest comfortably against that wall and enjoy a rest. Ahhhhh ❤️#ivehitthewall #covid_19 #ivehadenough #rest #recovery #imokay #permission #selfcare #acceptance #practicalmindset #occupationaltherapy #mentalhealth

Anyone else ever feel like this? 🤔

Today has been truly humbling and emotional.

Today we witnessed real mental distress and overwhelm. All I could do is sit with the person and give him space to calm. I let him know he was being heard, and validated how he was feeling. I asked permission to give him a hug. I sat and waited. I needed him to feel safe and supported.

It’s really difficult not to cry along with the person at times like this.

It is a privilege to have this trust and to help someone find a moment of calm.

We can all do this - listen quietly, without judgement. Just be there when someone needs strength. Offer a kind word or hug.

Mental health is a challenging journey. You are a warrior ❤️#mentalhealth #mentalwellbeing #metoo #overwhelmed #emotions #iamlistening #imhere #support #youarenotalone #occupationaltherapy #thisstuffmatters #practicalmindset
