Today I am sharing a new post over at Every Day Life, and I would love for you to join me in this conversation. In this piece, I revealed my raw and real internal battles that rise and fall much like the hard hitting waves of a fierce ocean tide. I have days like this, where all my thoughts spiral down a self torturing path of hard criticism stripping away at my worth.
Most days I can fight those nasty bullets of self-bullying, with the weapon of inner strength that ultimately triumphs in the battle. But then there are days I surrender in defeat, succumbing to the weight of destruction leaving me a vulnerable and fragile withered mess.
On a particular day of self loathing, where the air was suffocating and the heaviness was unbearable, I decided I needed to take out my arsenal of truths…
I’d love for you to follow me over to Every Day Life to read my own personal testimony to the throes of depression and self-deprecating thoughts… I titled it “The Battlefield Within” because that is what it truly feels like at times. Do you struggle with those internal wars too? Come join me and read more about this introspective fight I have within. I take an honest journey through my own depleting mindset that sometimes tears me up and takes me down.
Do you have such a thought life? Are there days when you surrender to the discouraging attacks from within? How do you rise to be the victor? Oh, how I would love your take on this heavy topic. I wonder if we all need a bit of encouragement to find ways to hold on to the joy in our lives. I grapple with it often, and ultimately find relief and restoration in my perspective when I dig deep to uncover my misleading perceptions and fill my crumbling disposition with significance. It’s easy to pick apart the details of what we deem to be failures in our lives. But often, we twist them into such magnified self loathing indulgence… they begin to build an entirely new foundation for our outlook on life. It’s time to take down those barriers to our joy, our passion, our worth and rebuild our mindset with truth.
Oh my goodness do I EVER?!?!?! Yes, I get this completely! On my way to read more!
I just can’t tell you what a comfort it is to know you have been in this place too, Alexa!! <3
I know… I’m guessing that face is a yuck face… and yeah… yucky… but but but TRUTH will win. JOY will win. Right? I pray you are soaking in both today, Faves. <3
