‘What if… ‘

One example of how our thoughts affect our mental health.

Day 20: Something you wonder “What if…?” about.

Doing “Mindfulness” based therapy has helped me to rid this little question from my brain…of which I am grateful. The “what ifs” in life can truly pummel you to a pulp if you let them.

The only “what if” I have is regarding my mental health issues.

What if I never had Bipolar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, or anxiety/panic attacks?

I guess if I question the “what if”, I would have to question who I would be today??

Would I be a poet? Would I love to write? Would I feel so passionately? Would I have all four of my amazing children??

I would keep these disorders because I wouldn’t want to change a thing about the above mentioned.

Besides, I am beginning to like me. ♥

    thanks for this example of how our thoughts affect our mental health – and the importance of acceptance, being comfortable in our own skin.
