Staying Afloat

There has been many ups and downs the past 6 months. All the changes and stress brought about great anxiety and depression. I was really glad that I was able to seek help in time and now, things has been under control.

It has always been breaking out of the thought process for me. I believe this is the same for most suffering from mental health issues. We tend to spiral into this oblivion and get stuck in a loop.

Sometimes it is the distractions and keeping oneself busy that we are able to break out of that vicious thought process. The idle mind is the devil’s playground they’d say.

Many things can offer a new perspective. Doing something different is a good start. Albert Einstein did define insanity as doing the same thing expecting different results.

The recovery process takes time like everything else in the world.

As the year end approaches, there has been many movies being released. One of those are Frozen 2. Many of us dread the sequels to movies because very often they are not as good as their predecessors. Like many, I received a mixed review of Frozen 2 but went ahead to watch it with the family anyway.

[Spoiler Alert]

“The Next Right Thing”

The gist of the movie is the inspiration Anna provides for the down trodden and those faced with challenges in life. I felt that the creator of the movie has really put a lot of thought to bring about consolation and offer solution to a common problem faced by humanity today.

Most of us especially those battling mental health issues can relate to what Anna has to say/sing about overcoming predicaments.

“You are lost, hope is gone, but you must go on and do the next right thing” is the statement that sums up the entire movie for me.

Often times, we are not able to envision where life is heading to. We cannot change the past and the future is yet unknown. All we can do is take a day at time by doing the next right thing.

I hope you’ll find the light at the end of the tunnel if you are currently facing challenges in life.

We all need to heal somehow…
