Hey beauties, I know its been awhile since you’ve last heard from me and I missed communicating with you all so much, but I had to work on my mental healing for a bit. You ever had that feeling like so much and nothing at all has happen? it’s a weird place to be in so I needed to take time and refocus my energy into a better me. So some of the new things that happened is I’ve traveled to Africa for the very first time😊 and right now I’m in Rwanda, Africa. First let me just tell you it’s been such a cool and long experience here and it’s really quiet, beautiful, and reserve. Next thing I’ve done is started a Youtube channel dedicated to the vlog version or my blog by showing you around Rwanda and talking to you guys through it all. My channel name is Lexi Vybez and I’m going to dedicate the rest of the channel to all things food, skincare, lifestyle, and my travels. I also have some behind the scenes ideas I’m trying to work on as well that I’m really praying can manifest into success for me. But still I wasn’t feeling like I was doing enough and a part of that has to do with my mental. I needed to be healed and renewed and its only one place I can go for that type of love, friendship, and gain. I’m working with God or better yet he’s working on me to heal from unforgiveness, removing those toxic thoughts, bitterness, revengeful thoughts, and constant replay of the hurt. Now I’ve done previous post before about forgiveness that you guys can check out but this time I need to work on the hurt creeping in and replaying in my mind.
Does that ever happen to you? out of nowhere this past hurt just creeps to the forefront of your mind and plays itself out like it was happening that very moment?. Please don’t be a shame to air it out because were not meant to keep things bottle up inside of us. We risk exploding or damaging our mental state even worst. The best come back for peace, and happiness is a renewal or your spirit and renewal of the mind. We have to seek forgiveness and then as hard as it may be give forgiveness and guess what’s the hardest part of that I’m learning? We have to often forgive them without an apology acknowledging they’ve wronged you. Now that’s the part that gets me but it’s also the part that needs to be done because I cannot have people and the hurt they’ve cost me living in my head rent free. Now how you continue to communicate with that person after lets just say I’m still trying to figure out. My approach so far is I’m going to love you from a distance. Is it the right approach? I’m not sure but I’m determined to do what’s best for me and seeking knowledge if this pleases the lord.
Mental healing come in so much different variety’s that I can’t pinpoint the area that you made need to check in with and work on but you know it. Anxiety, depression, constant anger, behaving wildly, constant need of gratification from others and the list goes on are all apart of a hurt from deep down inside that you may need to heal from. Forgive yourself for the wrongs you may have done to others and yourself and then spend time healing and improving.
I don’t have a game plan on how you can attack this mental check in because I am still practicing myself. Has things gotten better with me? I ‘am coming along and mentally those thoughts that would constantly plague me doesn’t do so as much. What am I doing now? I wish I can tell you I’m listening to motivational speeches and practicing yoga for meditation but I’m not there yet. I’m at the beginning waking up and thanking God for another day of life and protection and then making my needs known to him. Then I’m reading a bible plans from the Youversion bible app, then I’m just having conversations with myself these are like affirmations but if I feel something negative trying to surface I speak out positive thoughts only.
I don’t know about you guys but I feel better just releasing it out and I encourage you to do the same. You may think you don’t need it or your doing fine but Mental check in is not just for the hurt its for the good as well because we should be constantly growing and evolving to better versions of ourselves.
