I spend a lot of time on my smartphone. I spend time on Facebook and games. Half the time it’s because I enjoy it, but half the time it’s because I’m too tired to do anything else, and I need a distraction from the pain.
Sometimes I binge watch Netflix, YouTube, or mindless videos over and over, because I can’t stand to be with my own thoughts. I’m distracting myself from me. My phone has become a tool in my mental health and support for all of my health issues. Within reach are people who are going through the same issues as me and understand the struggles. It’s amazing how it can be a life saver to have someone to confide to when you are having a difficult day.
“At the end of the day, I’m a good woman. I’m not perfect by any means, but my intentions are good, my heart is pure and I love hard with everything I’ve got. And because of those things, I’m worth it. Always have been and always will be.” – An Empowered Woman
