#BreakofDawn: Mental Health & Heartbreaks

One of my faithful followers ask that I touch on the subject of 
"How I deal with my Mental Health and Heartbreak"

If you are new to this blog then let me inform you that I live with being Bipolar and I am married with five children. In my life now, I deal with heartbreak from deaths, failed friendships or business dealings. It's tough when I lose a friend or something doesn't work out for me business wise and I can be depressed for days. Losing a childhood friend/family member recently took me back a few weeks because he was only a few years older than me and died doing what he loved to do: Fishing. I felt like after losing my Grandmother, another family friend and a cousin all this summer that there was something that I did. I know it sounds insane, but I've never figured out how not to take death so personally. I rarely get depressed now over losing friends because some people have just completed their time with me. It's ok. With this transition into the Sports Industry, I have dealt with so much back-biting and heart break that I almost gave up on my dreams right before this football season starts. It's all a test. I am so used to blaming myself that I find myself saying, "WHY NOT ME? Why not right now?" You lose friends, you lose family members and you will not get the opportunity you think was set up just for you. 

YOU HAVE TO DEAL! You don't sit around blaming others because these things happened to you or around you. You don't blame yourself. I think I've done enough of that to spare four people the time and hurt. You get back to YOU! It is time that we reserve more time for ourselves and centering what our purpose in life is. I know that this saves me daily along with my love for my family. I can't let them down. I can be down for maybe a few days but I can't sit in my tears. I have to dry it up and move forward for the next experience. It will be hard, but trust me you will smile again and someone else or another opportunity will come into your life. BEGIN AGAIN! I know for many folks reading this that they're heartbreak has come from failed relationships. I know the feeling. I've lived the hurt. I am better not bitter because of it. You have to write. You have to do what makes you smile. You have to create a Mind to Body connection that will allow you to become whole again. Never allow an opportunity or person take the very thing that makes YOU: LOVE! You can continue to love through the hurt and what how God will bless you for living through that experience.
