Hello! It’s almost the end of the month and I just want to follow up with all of you. I know I have written a post about the 21 day challenge (Cheers To New Beginnings). If don’t know about the 21 days challenge, go to my post to get the details! It can definitely help you to improve your life.
So I tried my best to stay on it. Of course there were a few days that I have falter. I can say I feel there have been progress in my life. I have been working out and eating healthier. So far I lost 10 pounds. I had commited strongly to Only Michy’s social media (especially Instagram). If you haven’t followed me on social media yet, please do. Yo will get more Only Michy’s quotes and advice. I have been more consistent as for keeping my room clean or at least decent, doing laundry, and any house chores and errands that I have to do. This past month I felt like I have adulted more than I ever had!
The only thing that have been a fall back is the fact my laptop is not working. Usually I work on my blog on my down time at work, but recently a coworker have left the company and I have taken his place to manage most of his tasks while continuing my own duties. Explains the lack of posts on this blog and interaction on my blog. I am doing my best to make sure there are posts and communication on this site. Sorry for any inconvenience, but that’s why I encourage you to follow my social media so it won’t feel like you’re missing too much.
Other than that, life is slowly getting better. And I hate to say it, I don’t feel any better. I still feel depressed, and the feeling of that makes me more depressed. Why am I telling you this? I could have end it on a happier note, right? Well, I like to be honest with my readers and let my readers knows what depression really is. I will use myself as an example. My life wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great either. Instead of sitting down and complain about it, I took action to improve it. Even with diet, exercise, keeping myself occupied, and different types of self care, I still feel depressed. Not saying all of the hard work I put in was for nothing. If I have not done what I have been doing for 21 days, I will most likely be in a worse place. But I am saying this, to prove to people just because a person seems to be a functioning person of society does not mean that can’t be depressed. Just because because someone appears to be killing it everyday doesn’t mean they’re not trying to stop to kill themselves everyday. Pretty much, just because something appears “normal”, doesn’t mean it is. This is why therapy and meds are so important to the treatment; along with selfcare.
I do acknowledgement my achievements and understand it’s something to feel excited about. I just wish I can be proud of what I have done so far. One of these days, I will. And if you’re going through the same thing, please share. Because I know I’m not alone and you’re not alone too. We can get through this together, by adulting one day at a time.
