When the going gets tough...

Yowzers it's been a big couple of weeks. For those that aren't in the know, my Facebook business page has somehow disappeared from my ownership and still dealing with some very incompetent people at FB HQ. It is FRUSTRATING. And I also came off antidepressants which turned into an absolute shit show and now, back on them and feel like a million bucks.

I don't have any shame in admitting that I need help with my mental health, and no one ever should have any shame in asking or requesting help when dealing with mental health problems.

But the last couple of weeks have really tested me. REALLY tested me. The time, money and energy that I have put into my online presence gone. And no one to really help with it either. It's been tough, and no one really understands it unless they have their own business and knows what goes into it all. But I haven't let it bring me down too much. There have been days where I haven't wanted to even leave the house but I've made myself go for a walk, to go get a coffee at the local café, BOX... A LOT!! Boxing has definitely become my biggest outlet lately and makes me feel so much better.

So I guess what I'm saying is, when the going gets tough, don't sit down and feel too sorry for yourself. Yes, feel sad, feel angry, feel frustrated, feel disappointed, but then, go do something about it that will make you feel better, and if possible, get outside and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine and go for a walk.
