Generally my anxiety and depression are quite well managed and under control. At the moment, specifically, my depression is misbehaving.
I don’t think that there are any particular triggers at the moment. I just know that it is hard. Part of me is telling myself to carry on regardless to just fight through. The wiser part of me knows that the best thing to do is pause, acknowledge that this particular battle is a difficult one. This part of me knows that there is no shame in taking a breather, giving myself space and cutting myself some slack. I will not lose my war, but I am going to retreat from battles that I cannot win. And that is a victory on its own.
