I’ve started with a new counsellor and what always amazes me is the things that come up even when you don’t realise they even existed. There was a ‘light bulb’ moment this week when it dawned on me that I try to ‘fix people’.
A mixed bag of a weekend. Highs and lows. Bloody depression, you think you are doing great and then wallop here we go again. No where near as bad as it was but I didn’t go to the dinner, I just couldn’t bring myself to go.
If you missed the RTE Today Show you can see it on the player for the next month. I’m not sure if this is for Ireland only or worldwide, you can check it out here. I’ll be telling you all about it in the coming days.
If you’ve been following the blog you’ll know about my battle with depression. I’ve written a lot about this shadow person that kind of took over, it’s a bit mad because I woke in the middle of the night and an article came up on Facebook about Carl Jung and his theory on everyone having a shadow side. I didn’t even know there was such a thing.
Thank you to The Journal for letting me tell my story today, if it helps just one person I’ll be happy.
I’ve been plotting and planning, lots of ideas as always, and I was delighted to get the art supplies above from a voucher that the family gave me for Christmas. I love painting and drawing, it’s such a enjoyable thing to do.
