It’s hard to admit when things aren’t going well, especially regarding our mental and physical well-being. For me, that’s been especially true in the past few weeks. I haven’t felt like myself; I’m listless, unmotivated, and struggling with my health — mentally and physically. I’ve been trying to find ways to cope, but it can be hard.

I know I’m not alone in this experience — we all have days when our well-being is off balance. Sometimes it’s an external factor that throws us off, and other times it’s something going on inside us. Whatever the reason, it doesn’t make those days any easier.

I have been struggling with feelings of disappointing everyone around me. I feel that I have even let myself down. I know I need to take daily steps to look after myself.

I hope this journal will help as I document my daily-ish thoughts and work through what is going on in my mind. I think it may be a nice change of pace from literal decades of addiction to social media, especially with current events.
