Really I think this is just gonna be a short posting today, like a short marker on my own mental health status. First off I was on another site that asked me to create one of those “about me” postings that I find so annoying. This time though I drew one up that I’m pretty proud of ;
“Who am I? I am a product of my generation, family, culture, and experiences. The person you see before you is not a perfect work nor will I ever be. I have fallen, been discarded, abandoned, and left alone. Each time, I get back up and move on. You want to know me? I am faulty, broken, and weathered. Does this bother me? I would be lying if I said no but such is life. I live, I learn, and I search. Search for what I believe is right and what is me in this ever expanding and shrinking world. During this process I hope to find someone who I can call my best friend, partner, wife. A person that will be my support, my influence, my passion. To stand beside me as my equal. I search not for that elusive Perfect Love, but the Love that is Perfect for me. Who am I? I.Am.Me.”
Life is going good I think at the moment. Work is starting to get a grove for me and I am really starting to solidify a social life. I would be lying if I said work doesn’t drain me but I think I’m beginning to cope. For example, it seems not only am I, hopefully, affecting my client’s lives towards a more positive outlook, but I am beginning to try and grow my life. I am still socially responsible for my actions and responsibilities but I have been getting out more and doing more. Recently I completed my first 10k run in a long time, and I got third place! I wouldn’t have had the drive if it wasn’t for a recently new friend of mine named Nina. She knew I liked to run and convinced me to be her running partner. We trained sporadically but made our goal of doing the 10k in under 70 minutes! In addition, I’ve been spending more time with my family and letting them know how appreciative I am of everything they do for me or have done for me. Heck I have even gotten back into dating again…kinda sort of. What I mean is since starting my new job, I began dating but it ultimately ended on New Years of all days. But meh it’s done and over with. On the up and up though, by doing this run, I met someone who has caught my interest. We’re talking but that’s all I’ll say at the moment since this is still fresh. All in all, when I take into account my downfalls and positive events, I think life is looking up.
