Problems vs Coping

We all have problems.
It’s what we do about them that determines our outcome.

In the past, I lacked the ability to cope with my stressors.
I refused to acknowledge what I was feeling.
I didn’t set healthy boundaries around my time and personal space.
I refused to tell others that I was struggling with life.
โ€ฆ and I isolated instead of reaching out to others.

In hindsight, I can see that I was simply trying to survive.
However, instead I was digging my grave.

You don’t have to live life as a zombie.

  1. Breathe
  2. Give yourself permission to feel anything you need to feel.
  3. Protect your time, energy, and space with healthy boundaries.
  4. Share your struggles with a trustworthy friend.
  5. Find a tribe that will support your journey.

You got this bro!!!

Go out and be all that God created you to be! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ”ฅ
