I’ve been in a slump lately. I haven’t been feeling myself. This week especially has been rough. With XXXTentacion being shot and killed on Monday, I’ve had a heavy heart. His music got me through a lot in the past few months. I know he had some mistakes in life, but nobody deserves to die like that. Rip.
Anyway, I’ve been lacking the motivation to do anything. But here I am. I wanted to post something on here that opened my eyes. Last night I was scrolling through Facebook and I came across this picture:
This made me open up my eyes. Over the years, I’ve noticed I have a healing aura. A lot of people look towards me to help them or vent. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. I love helping others and talking to others about their problems. It does drain me though. I recharge by being alone and taking time to myself.
There come times where some people I have in my life drain me to my max and I can’t handle it. I start losing myself. I look to the others in my life who help me stay balanced. They remind me that I don’t have to help this person or people if it’s too much for me. I need to worry about myself sometimes so I don’t do anything.
I guess to the moral to this story is, take care of yourself. Once you’re mentally alright, you can help others. You don’t have to help everybody.
