The past is past, the longer you stay in shock fixated on what has not gone right for you in life, you’ll never move forward. Once you achieve a well state of mind, pat yourself on the back, and welcome back, that takes a lot of hard work, discipline, and listening to others to get well again and stay well. The more you rebel, defiant to the concerns of others, the more difficult it becomes for you to adjust to reality, you get put down, pushed aside, and left behind for a reason, not because people don’t love you, but because they need to focus on themselves and don’t have the time to waste either helping you, or redirecting your thoughts toward positives, that is something you have to figure out for yourself, you either listen or turn a blind eye to feedback along the way, don’t take anything too personally, just do your best to take into consideration the suggestions of others, you’ll likely look back on those moments in a positive way thank them later, even if at the time you feel small. Confidence takes years to build, and with practice excelling at your strengths in life, while recognizing your weaknesses in life, those experiences in life will only make you stronger, and I promise you those insecurities and awkward feelings about yourself will change. Its okay to be yourself, some are gifted in that way, affected by every little thing people say to them, sensitive, reading too much into everything … never assume as insult toward you, most people who are insulting do not mean to be insulting or insensitive to your feelings, they are usually just trying to help, if ever critical of you or others, pointing out whats wrong, instead of buffering whats going right for people in life via compliment, some are just not programmed that way, to compliment, cheer up, or bolster the esteems of others. Trust that your time to shine will come again, if youre used to being the best at everything, standing out from a crowd, then learn how to handle standing out during your worst moments too, being the best comes at a price, people expect more from you, and are harder on you expectations high of you, to impress or prove that you are who you are on paper, be everything past as you are now, that is you, and even if you have been through changes in life, that make you not feel like yourself anymore, forgive yourself and others, at some point you have to move forward, in order to live life as you are now. Theres a lot of stigma, associated to those who suffer from mental health issues, treated as drug addicts or alcoholics, blaming drug use or alcohol as a cause for their mental health issues, while those things may have contributed to incidences of mental illness or poor decision making in the past, those flamboyant episodes of confidence and grandeur will surely be forgotten the better adjusted you are to who you are now, having had those experiences in life, I’m sure people are mostly concerned with their image not yours, and their health, not your past, and the only thing people care about now is your wellness now, to determine whether or not they want to be in the company of anyone who has had a history of mental health issues, be affected.
