Heal Yourself First.
Six proven shifts you can start today that will lower your stress and start YOUR healing.
There is such loneliness.
Loving a man who is haunted by mental illness.
You are trying so hard to love him back to health.
Desperately long to be heard. To be seen. To be loved.
Unable to speak your truth. Unable to share your pain.
The fear, frustration, guilt… few understand.
It’s a hopelessness that can’t be explained.
So here we are. Warrior Sisters. On the front line. Every day.
Taking on all the responsibilities. Feeling all alone.
Hoping, trying, praying to hold it all together.
We are trying so damn hard.
We get excited when one good day turns into two.
Devastated when we begin to see the signs of sickness again.
We stop trying to plan. Stop trying to truly live.
Our entire life has become defined by how he is feeling.
We want so badly to heal him.
And we wonder who is going to take care of us.
We rise each day and push forward but inside…
Inside we feel more and more lost.
We feel more and more alone.
After a lifetime of loving men with mental illness,
I am sure of one thing.
The one person you must heal first, love first, is yourself.
I encourage you to walk with me.
Walk with me down the path of healing.
Healing for yourself.
