The most beneficial thing I’ve learned from nature is it’s unique ability to heal you in stressful times. When surrounded by vast mountains, crashing waterfalls, or sitting beneath millions of stars, you come to the realization that life as we know it is so over complicated.
The last few months have been extremely stressful for me and as a result has caused me to struggle with my mental health for the first time in my life (boy does it hit you like a ton of bricks). Getting married, owing money, family problems, and trying to figure out a way to move to California has led to me to the brink of a mental break down. My anxiety has risen to an all time high which as a result has led me into a depressive episode. Lately, I’ve been living off about 2-3 hours of sleep a night due to racing thoughts which just adds to the anxiety. It’s a vicious circle of symptoms that leaves you feeling hopeless at times. The moral of this caption is MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES ARE REAL. Unfortunately, I’ve had to experience it in order to understand it. You’re not alone, keep chugging along, time heals all.
