For the last few months the stress in my life has been through the roof and I didn't realize just how much it has affected me until last night. I broke down in tears as my partner held me and cried out the disappointment, anger and dislike of where I am in life right now. As I sat there listing every thing negative in my life right now, my partner sat there and forced me to re-evaluate what I believed by reframing each complaint and putting a positive spin on it. He validated my feelings, took my concerns seriously and then made me laugh.
The revelation came when I realized with his help just how far I have come in the 3 years that we have been together. Comparing then to now the mental leap forwards that I've taken is mind blowing. He suggested to me that maybe I am finally at a point where I have come as far as I can go mentally and emotionally with coping skills and dealing with mental health and now it is time to work on the physical. When he put it like that I felt on top of the world. I have come far, now its time to switch focuses and put it on making myself physically healthy.
Let the new journey begin.
