Looking At The Fragility Of Your Mental Health Before Embracing Some Life's Challenges
Over the past couple of months I've been struggling with understanding what are the most viable decision for my life and so far I've found out that I've placed my physical and mental health over prospective happiness in most of the decisions and actions I've taken and at the moment I don't know if I've been totally right or wrong. Truth is, irrespective of how we feel we don't need fear, I feel sometimes fear helps us to face our reality the way it is and even if it deadens our courage it often brings a kind of check to our excesses which people often don't reckon with. Imagine if a person has no fear of fire?
It'll mean that the danger which fire brings will have no essence of repercussions without fear coming into place to remind us that something like fire on our skin threatens our existence. I won't lie, sometimes I fear, I understand the danger of fear, I know the repercussions but then I understand my limit when it comes to fear but then sometimes it's better to kill your hope. Hope makes you expectant and expectancy can make your ability to rate your chances in life on a realistic level very high but then it's much more worse to be expectant and your expectations doesn't meet the desire outcome you eventually seek.
Lately I find myself being protective of my mental state this is because how well my mental state seems or does determines the productivity of my physical state and attracting things that cumbers my mental state is something I always run away from and this entails accepting challenges that might demean me. It's always great to stand up to challenges in life irrespective of the challenges we have but then there are moments we have to be realistic and face the fact that sometimes our abilities are below par in handling some life challenges. We can only go as fast as our stipulated abilities and anything extraordinary might put us in danger of capitulation.
Sometimes when we discontinue some mad and endless chase to achieve the impossible in life, it doesn't mean the whole reason is as a result of our cowardice. If bravery doesn't precede sensibility them we might just call it foolishness and that's the whole truth. Sometimes what people see as bravery is just stupidity backed up without rationality. It's always important for us to know when to stop, when to continue or when to retreat and that's how we maintain our longevity in life. To me I see some challenges in life as a foolhardy task. I know myself, I know how far I can go and the repercussions when I try to exceed that range but then life isn't about the mad rush, it's about thriving, it's about surviving beyond capitulations and living to tell how we've conquered beyond all odds.
My mental health is important to me and I often run from things that threatens it's stability. In 2013 I suffered severe depression and in 2014 and 2015 it became worse due to some life changing experiences I went through and then this threatened my physical health in general and I almost lost my life, In 2018 I feel I love with someone I probably shouldn't, this was something that nearly ruined me. I recognise and understand the fragility of my mental state and this is why I often look at the possibilities I have going forward in life because banking on hope only disappoints one in general. In life it's imperative we understand ourselves before embracing dangerous quests all in the name of challenges.
