“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake, we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:35-37
The everyday, ordinary moments form the heart of life. They matter, especially when you treat them like they do. The same goes for New Year’s. They’re chances for something different, something better, but that only rings true if we believe in restoration.
Whether you’re recovering from loss, addiction (not necessarily involving substances), or trauma of any kind, or you’re sick and tired of being sick and tired, an end-of-year review focusing on your mental health is a priceless gift of hope. A stronger promise of renewal than merely wishing things were better. Moving forward after a mental health crisis may seem daunting as if you have changed and can’t go back to who you used to be. The truth is that good treatment, and ongoing care can help anyone struggling with mental illness restore a normal, satisfying life with friends, family, work, and a great quality of life.
Accept that you live with a chronic illness and take advantage of online counseling services; it’s convenient. Let those who care about you help as you make gradual changes for a life that includes wellness and good mental health. Acceptance is a big part of being able to move forward after going through so many trials this year. It’s not uncommon for a person who has been stabilized to assume that everything is fine, to brush the past under the rug, and to ignore the fact that they are living with a real, chronic, and serious mental illness. Know that this illness will not go away but that there are effective ways to treat and manage it so that you can move forward with family, work, and other important areas of life.
There are four things to focus on here:
- Seek a professional counselor to help you thrive.
- Work through ways of understanding what didn’t work/isn’t working.
- Repeat this next step: What did work/is working?
- What is your 2023 year focus?
Moving on with your life even though you have a serious mental illness means putting in the effort to make real and lasting changes. It’s not something you can do on your own. The most important thing you can do to make your future better is to work with professionals and really dedicate some time to learning how to live with your illness.
