It's easy to vent, dump it and leave without a plan of action. That's not fair to you or the person you unload on. Yes, i agree there is a time AND person for that type of conversation, but this self-care check-in is NOT it. This person is someone who has agreed to support my healing plan as a listener and encourager; not the fixer, dump pile or the clean-up person. My action plan has the resources i can use for that.
While reading an article about psychological distress, major depression, and suicidal ideation among Americans aged 12 to 25 after 2011 (a new study published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology), it elicited an uneasiness that i am not at all comfortable with. TODAY, i remind my beautiful sisterhood, do NOT be silent about taking positive action for your mental health self-care. You have a voice and do not have to go through alone.
TODAY, i choose to let others know that i am #healing well. In #THEMEETING this morning GOD SAYS, "I LOVE those who love ME, and those who seek ME diligently will find ME. #IAM with you always...LOVE ONE ANOTHER, just as I HAVE LOVED you...I REJOICE (CELEBRATE) over you with singing!
So i WILL BLESS (BARAK) THE LORD at all times; HIS PRAISE shall continually be in my mouth. 🙇🏿♀️🙌🏿👏🏿🙏🏿🗣
#THEMEETING is early morning Time Alone With GOD when you listen to HIM for the guidance and instructions for your day. It is the meeting BEFORE the start of your day. 📖Luke 21:38
BARAK means "to kneel down, to bless GOD as an act of adoration, to salute." FOR GOD ALONE IS WORTHY!!!
