1. You are so right! Your mind can be your own worst enemy! So glad you are trying to practice mindfulness to bring yourself out of the downward mind spiral back to the beauty that’s surrounding you in the present!


  2. I like your post and also think mindfulness is such a wonderful skill to learn – not just to cope with depression, but to be more present in the moments that count. Thanks for sharing.


  3. So much of what you said also applies to me. I thought because I was the one that left my husband I would not have to grieve, but I was wrong. I tried to “find the girl I used to be” and I finally realized, I needed to stop looking for her because she didn’t exist the way she was anymore. I had grown and become so much more and I needed to embrace who I’d become. The mind can truly be a terrible thing. I don’t understand why we are so hard on ourselves, but it is nice to know we are not alone. That others are going through the same thing. The depression for me was the worst part. I finally started to see a counselor to try to sort some things out. I realized it was too soon to date again and that I needed to heal. I still have hard days. I literally have to fight through the depression at times because I feel like it will swallow me whole. But it feels physically and painfully hard. But I really have to make myself get in a good mindset and not let the grief from the past and the loss of the future I thought I’d have get the best of me. It’s amazing the strength you have that you are not aware of until you need to draw from it.
    I wish you the best…it is a very long road, but you WILL get down it.
