Parenting is hard, I’m depressed..

“If you are ever unsure of the choices in life or scared of the future, look to me & I’ll help you” – God

I am sorry I haven’t posted a couple of days but I am not myself at the moment. This feeling is mostly coming from a situation at work. I was given a temporary position in an new department of my company and now this position is ending next week. I know some of you might be thinking “How is that depressing”. My old position was a piece of shit and I despised it with all soul. The thing is that this temporary position gave me peace of mind, if you can see it that way. I don’t mind a customer service position but sometimes your customers can push you over the edge. I enjoyed my time and it had plenty of benefits I liked.

Besides this situation at work, what sparked my depression was my thoughts on the future. I never wanted to be in a position where I worked long hours with no time for myself or my child. I often feel a corporate work environment is not for me. I do consider myself a free spirit who doesn’t want to be controlled by anyone. I’ve always wanted to work in an environment where I could do my own thing and still get paid. I don’t want to live a normal lifestyle and be like everyone else. I have always felt like I was set aside to be different and stand out. I have a lot of goals I would love to accomplish this year and I am determined to get them done.

One of my goals was actually to start a blog. I have always wanted to start one and once I got over my fear, this site was established. I want to gain more consistency and I know this will help out.

If anyone is willing, I would love for someone to comment on how you deal with depression or when you feel inadequate. What are some things you do to lift your spirits?

  1. Bless you ✨ in terms of dealing with depression for me it has taken constant hard work and effort. Constantly pushing myself to look after myself (which starts with speaking kindly to myself) -probably the hardest Cos it’s so automatic to be negative. It is also effort in physically loving myself, eating good healthy food and drinking lots of water (even if I have to force it) lots of ‘cleansing’ in the way of salt baths and drinking water, smudging, detoxing from social media and exercising. When depressed even having to get up feels like the hardest thing ever but that’s what I mean in it being hard work and effort is required! Having your son hopefully helps, I have found being around children is also another cure ✌🏽♥️
