What is Emotional Health?

What is Emotional Health?

My sophomore year, I had a lot of breakdowns. I found myself overrun by anxiety and unable to do life well because I was so overwhelmed. I made myself do everything all the time; I never said no to anyone and I believed that, in order to "be successful" I had to act as invincible as Wonder Woman. I think it goes without saying that, at one point, I hit a wall. I crashed, completely exhausted and unsure of what to do. I thought I was healthy; I was in counseling, I was in a good place with Jesus, I was physically healthy, but I still wasn't okay.

On Failure

On Failure

In my experience, I've learned that the best solution is to embrace it, because learning from failure and allowing it to teach you is a lot better than letting it knock you down. There are a lot of steps to how this can happen, and they can't be learned all at once, but today, as a person that fails often, I'm going to walk you through them.
