When your mind is your enemy what do you do? Do you fight it? Do you just give in to it? I can say mental health discussions are not an enemy to this blog, and if you’re familiar with my posts then you know this as well. Mental health is something that’s so important to me, not only because I’m struggling with it myself, but because I also know others who are struggling with it. Typically, you’re excepted to use your mind or listen to your brain for some of the best solutions. However, the question still stands…what if your mind is your enemy?
That’s a tricky question for a lot of us that struggle mentally, including me. Your brain is supposed to help you not hurt you, but sometimes it can be both your bestfriend and your worst enemy. It’s like feuding with someone you love. It’s tough, but in the end, you might just have to disagree or even fight with it. Your mind can tell you to do things that you shouldn’t be doing. It can tell you or make you believe you’re not worth it or you can’t do something and so on. Why is this? Just like when you have a cold, your brain is sick and needs medicine. I’m not sure about in other countries, but I know in the U.S. it can be hard to get that medicine to help win the battle.
This is when you need good friends and family by your side and a lot of prayer as well. People try to fight the battle with their brain every day and there are so many people who are losing the battle. It’s always confusing when your body goes against you because now, you’re forced to fight yourself. Keep good people by your side to help you through it. Sometimes it’s hard to trust others and we want to keep our battles to ourselves, but that’s how we get weaker.
Ultimately, the best answer to win the fight is to get professional help, but if you don’t have access to a professonal then please talk to someone. Share how you’re feeling. Let people know what’s going on and they can help you with this fight. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Your brain might tell you there isn’t, but I’m telling you there is and you will make it there.
