#MentalHealthMonday: The constant fight can be exhausting. That’s why it’s important to arm yourself with the coping tools that help you the most. #Repost @mentalhealthamerica with @get_repost・・・
Learn from your experiences. The more experience someone has with something, the better they usually are at dealing with it. Treat every experience you have as a learning one. If you have made a lot of progress and then have an episode, don’t think of it as taking a step back. Try and think of it as the next foot forward.
For example, if you are hospitalized, try not to think about it as a disruption of your progress but rather a lesson about what triggers you to get to that stage. Think of it as having a toolbox, and each time something happens, take something from the experience and put in your toolbox for the next time you feel something coming over you.
It’s important to equip yourself with information and tools to manage your symptoms if and when they return. You can’t always predict when these bad days will happen, but you can predict how you will react.
