Things To Remember On Bad Days

Your mistakes don’t define you, not everything you think is true and you are more than other people’s opinion. Remember, Bad Days are part of life like good days are. No one is posting their failures, so you are not alone. Remember, it’s okay to have bad days or even weeks where the only thing you do is barely surviving. Sometimes mental illness can be terrifying because when one feels like they’ve lost control of their mind and world, and nothing makes sense in their life, it’s a lot to digest and accept. It’s usually defined as watching yourself on autopilot mode and having little to no control over anything that is happening. But remember, you are worthy. You don’t have to be perfect, and having a bad day is okay. Small steps are also a sign of progress. Asking for help on bad days is also a strength. Some people love you and appreciate you, more than you could ever imagine. So relax and let go, also don’t forget to give yourself some credit.
