Self Therapy Session 11

Hello and welcome to another session of Self Therapy!

The past week has been quite happening. The best thing about it was that I have finally adjusted into a routine. I follow this routine rigidly even on the weekend. Having a routine is vital specially if you are soneone who struggles with mental health. Here is how my day looks like:

I wake up, have a powerful breakfast and hit the gym straight. Days that start with a good workout are happy days. Then I get home, get ready and go for work. Things at work are shaping up as well. I am getting a grip of it and my manager says I am doing a good job. So far so good.

Mental health wise eveything is all set

Overthinking ❌

Time waste ❌


Positivity ✅

Hard work ✅

Routine ✅

I am almost 2 months into the plan that I have for myself. It completes at 6 months. It gets me really excited when I think about my dream coming true. I am working day and night to make it happen. I am not alone in this journey. There is someone who is very supportive and keeps me grounded. We work hand in hand to make things happen for the both of us.

One last thing I’d love to mention before I sign out is journaling. Journaling helps me keeping track of myself and the progress I make. It is so simple to do, you just need 10 minutes at the end of the day to recall your day and write and down. I prefer doing this with pen and paper. I mention both the good and bad things about my day and brainstorm on areas of improvement.

I’ll end this session here, see you next week on another session. If you do anything specific to keep yourself going, please do mention in comments 😊

Self Therapy Session 10

Typing a speedy update from the gym. That’s how busy I am imagine. A guy who had nothing to do 24 hours does not have 10 minutes to make a blog post.

Which is why this sessions is going to be about hope. Hope which keeps all of us going.

My mental health improves every week by the grace of God. The amount of uninterrupted sleep I am getting now is amazing. Due to which I am able to get on with my day. The first thing I do is that I hit the gym. I cannot stress enough on the importance of going to the gym or for a run. It literally makes your day!

Things at work are going well. However I’ve been doing 2 hour overtime which makes it a 11 hour work day. Obviously it gets tiring but you got to do what you got to do. Can’t really complain #blessedlife

I really wish to give more time to my blog and I will definitely work on it. Talking about my travel goal, I am one month closer to it 😁

So 5 more months of sheer hardwork to go before I can make my dream trip. Here is hoping I make it through with the person I want to 😊

Please leave updates of your week in comments. See you next week on another session 🤞🏻

Eid Mubarak

Hello to my lovely blogger community. I wish you all a very happy Eid!

Today was the last day of fasting and the entire Muslim community celebrates Eid tomorrow!

The month of Ramadan was a very good month for me. It was my first month at my new job and it went smooth. I managed to control my overthinking and was able to kick ass at work left, right and center!!!

Spiritually as well I seemed to regain the connection with God which seemingly got lost somewhere in between the hustle of life. I expect to keep this connection in the months to come.

The time hereon will not be easy and I do realize that. However I want to scream and shout that I AM ONE MONTH CLOSER TO LIVING MY DREAM!!!

So one month down but 5 more to go. It is important that I keep my calm in the coming months. I want to remind myself that nothing is black and white. With everything bad there is always a silver lining. May I always have the strength to identify that.

Just two months before I did not have the strength to get out of bed and fave the day. Today I have a secure job, an income and a lover. Life could not have been any better (touchwood).

The point I am trying to make is that no matter how bad it may seem right now, things will change for YOU. I know some of you have started to believe that life has issued you a death sentence and this is how you will survive till you die. Let me tell you none of you are meant to jist survive, you all are meant to live. So spread your wings and fly! Learn to fly if you have to but do it. Each and everyone of us is talented and has a purpose. Yes, it might not be a clear at the moment, but that does not mean that there isn’t one. If I could overcome all the shit I went through, so could you. Yes it took the life out of me, yes it broke me, yes I gave up but here I am writing this post.

My struggle happened for a purpose, it did not go to waste. I can now hold someone’s hand and tell them it is not over for them. I can help someone and there is someone out there waiting for me to save them. I was not able to save myself alone, there were others who supported me and pulled me from the dark place I was in. I want to thank each and every one of them. I want to keep going.

Stay happy and blessed and keep fighting the good fight! 👊🏻
