Priority. April 26, 2010.
"Your mental health is your first priority." -Dr. Abraham Low
* * *
This morning I got a call from the bank that I had made a mistake on my account. I had to pay a fine AND I was late to work. So I went into that "default" place I always go - I'm stupid, I'm worthless, I HATE myself. I had forgotten about my pledge to always put my mental health FIRST before anything else.
If I am anxious and depressed, then I can't cope with daily life. The more healthy I am emotionally, the smoother everything else goes. What I have to do is forgive myself, learn from my mistake, and do better next time. What can YOU do for your mental health today?
