It’s been a hard day. I’ve been on a mental emotional roller-coaster. I feel so drained right now. Glad that one of my loved ones is ok for the moment and I hope out of the woods soon. Someone close to me who was always there for me when I was a little kid, and one of the warmest people I know.
I am totally spent.
Just a reminder once again not to take anyone for granted – and that includes yourself. We often forget to take care of ourselves as well.
I don’t like to be labelled as emotionally weak as I tend to express my every emotion, but I do know that I am more fragile and sensitive than most.
I am writing this to remind myself to be more emotionally prepared for life’s more distressful times. Wish they would never come, but they increasingly do as we get older and I am in a poor state to handle them. Always toyed with the idea of talking to a therapist, but the stigma and lack of trust on my part to open up to anyone holds me back. Especially in Singapore where I wonder about confidentiality. Well, I hope to get over that hump soon.
Just wanted to write this for anyone out there going through the same kind of emotions I am going through, because it’s always reassuring to know you’re not alone. I am very grateful for the very supportive readers out there, and you probably know who you are.
