Take Pride Friday June 7, 2019
A deadly sin, some believe.
Precursor to a fall, say others.
And we all know someone who has a bit too much.
But for those of us who find day to day life a struggle, for whom the black dog visits and the darkness engulfs, a little pride can go a long way. I'm not talking about running marathons; I mean pride in the everyday achievements which poor mental health can turn into such a challenge.
Pride for getting out of bed when we really didn't want to.
Pride for getting through a busy week.
Pride for saying "No" to something and instead prioritising self-care.
We have so much to be proud of, even on our darkest days, and acknowledging that can be such a positive step to recognising just how good we all are, and just how hard we fight to get through.
So go on, dear Moodscopers, puff out your chests and tell us all: what are you proud of?
