Prayer is honestly one of the best things I can do for my self care. If I am unhappy… pray. Fearful… pray. Need guidance… pray. Feel amazing… pray. It grounds me and helps me reach out beyond myself regardless of where I am.
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks. 1Thessalonians 5:16-18
It is okay to not be okay because this is a journey not a race. Enjoy the process and just know you are a work in progress and loved just the way you are.
Reach out if you feel you need help. Talk to your family, your church, your school, your counselor, your friends, call a help line… There is always a way. I can say this because my journey has oftentimes felt like I was trudging through the mud, sinking deep and fast but I kept going. I am a work in progress and my faith and my family have helped pull me through. This thing called life can be tough… just keep swimming and it will be okay.
