Self, when I think of self lately, I haven’t thought very highly of myself. 2018 was a very tough year for myself and those around me. Some of it because of my own doing, some of it because of my mental health and physical health issues.
2019 now has become my year of self renewal, faith renewal, and I am hoping a whole lot of self-love. Because as Rupaul Charles says, “if you can’t love yourself how the hell can you love somebody else! Can I get an amen!”
In one of the photos you see the hand that says balance, calmness, determination, confidence, willpower and self-control. 2019 has got to be the year that all six of these come to fruition for me. As an unemployed, person thriving with HIV/AIDS for 22 years not just surviving, with alcoholism and addiction issues, and no health insurance – 2018 became abundantly depressing and very scary for me. That is because I was not aware of how much help is out there if you truly reach out to your team and tell them that you are at your end mentally and physically because you’re tired.
I am very proud to say that I am now working with my team of mental health, recovery health, and my medical team to put me back together just as though I was Humpty Dumpty that fell off the wall.
That’s what’s in “My Rattled Cage” thank you for stopping by!
