Noticing beauty does not mean life is perfect

#MentalHealthMonday⁠⁠You know I always keep things real here on social media, so I just wanted to remind you that what you see in my feed is one good thing I notice and photograph each day. It does not mean that every day is rainbows and butterflies and perfection. So please don't think that, and don't think yours should be either. ⁠⁠Also, know that finding beauty does not mean ignoring your feelings and pretending everything is rosy. You have to process your stuff to ever start to heal. There's absolutely no way I could see any beauty in my life several years ago when I was at my worst with my depression... and that's okay. Things were too raw, and I had to deal with them first.⁠⁠So do the hard work, go to a therapist, take medication if you need it. ⁠⁠Then when you're ready, start noticing the beauty that is all around you. It really will help boost your mood. I'm living proof. Annddd, it has solid scientific research backing it. ⁠⁠I also highly recommend browsing through all the mental health resources my partner @mentalhealthamerica has on its website. Just click on the link in my bio and go to the Mental Health America button.⁣⁣⁠⁠As always, please reach out if you have any questions or want to chat. xx⁠⁠ @manal_murangi⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠#ichoosebeauty #littlethingsmatter #beautyinlife #noticethelittlethings #itsthelittlethings #simplethings #itsthelittlethingsinlife #simplethingsinlife #momentsoflife #beautyiseverywhere #lookaround #healingjourney #healingtools #healingyourself #healingfromwithin #healingpower #hearthealing #mentalhealthtips #mentalhealthhelp #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthishealth #mentalhealthcommunity #mentalhealthadvice #mentalhealthisreal #mentalwellness⁣⁣⁣⁣⁠ ⁠
