Feeling a little Better but its still a work in progress

lovesbeachesandbooks profile image

I am very proud of myself. I went today to a temp agency to get help with finding a job. I have two job interviews tomorrow and a doctors appointment and I have a social worker meeting on Friday. I even finally after two long as years found a career I am excited for. I am slowly feeling the way I want to feel and just be better prepared. I am hoping to get a job so I can save and get my license and get a car but also be able to move out. I am ready to be able to work on myself and not have to care for others. It may seem selfish but I have done nothing but make sure everyone else is okay and their stuff gets done before I can handle and deal with my health. I have not had time to just be a young adult who wants to take better care of myself. I am wanting to eat better, exercise more and just be a better me. I also need to reconnect with myself and God. I have lost touch with not only with myself but God too and it sucks. I am determined to just slowly start to focus on myself.

Thank you

It’s ok to be selfish if that means taking care of yourself :) Remember, in order to care for others property, you must care for yourself first. Blessings to you!

I am so proud of you! I agree with mrsmandy that you have to take care of yourself so that you can take care of others. How do you intend on reconnecting with God? If i can make a suggestion, set aside some time each day say 20 minutes. Spend that time reading the Bible and in quiet reflection. I suggest you start with the Psalms. Find yourself a positive church and join it.

I am praying for you!

My plan to reconnect with God is to make it a routine in the morning and before bed to read the bible and reflect. Then once I get a car go back to church since my parents don't really want to go back. Thank you for the advice! <3
