In reality there no shame of admitting to having moments of humanity and vulnerability, I am just a human and I’m not supposed to be always strong.

Lately I experienced bouts of depression that range from simple sadness to life re-considerations. And while the women/men I knew never demonstrated the reality of depression in their lives, the reality of my experience tells me that there had to have been tears in the dark, moments of surrender, wishes of ending lives over life struggles.

I have been given the chance to discuss issues that I may find uncomfortable to bring up in other situations, or even with our my families and friends.

The feeling of distress and confusion in a transitional phase is a normal feeling which everyone has felt it at least a couple of times but recently I realized that no one knows what’s going to happen next. We just occasionally like to pretend we do because it allows us to feel safe.

During my life time, I’ve pushed people away, I’ve come closer with others, I cried, I laughed, I suffered and I enjoyed myself at the same time without feeling ashamed.

Unfortunately, the more we compromise our values, the more of a negative impact it has on our mental wellbeing.

I always said to myself I’m going to make it on my own. Taking a stand – saying that I will not tolerate or put up with certain attitudes or behavior – means being willing to accept the responsibility of making that choice and thus shouldering the consequences.

Doing the right thing or standing up for my believes may not be easy mission as many think, but when I do, I know that I’ll be able to look myself in the mirror and feel good about myself

The truth is, we wouldn’t be human if we didn’t make mistakes, but learning from those mistakes and standing for what we believe in the vast majority of time is what is most important.. We’re all human, and it is up to us stand up for ourselves or for one another.

Today is the “World Kindness Day” so be kind to yourself and to someone else.

Puss & Kram, J
