I’m Resting my Soul & You Can Too if you Dare!!
To be successful on Social Media you are meant to post comments quite often so you stay in people’s minds. You also need to be active on more than just one.
So in true organised style I thought I should devise a plan of what day and time I will post things and schedule all posts. I’ll make a list of all the ones I need to learn about. I really do not understand Twitter and periscope is up and coming and I need to know about that.
In reality I’ve ended up getting quite flustered. I feel overwhelmed with this whole supposedly amazing idea and am wondering what on earth I was thinking.
I’m guessing at times you feel the same.
You start something but get frustrated because you can’t make it as perfect as you want it so you get gloomy feelings and feel bad about yourself.
So this message is for you and this message is me.
Be proud of what you achieve. It is not a race. And you will win. Maybe not today or tomorrow but you will win.
I have been working in mental health for many years now helping people with their feelings. Mental health is of paramount importance and it is worth protecting it at any cost.
I am fine. I am not about to have a break down.
BUT I am overwhelmed and exhausted. And I know too well it is a slippery slope.
So, to look after myself I need to turn this ruddy computer off, and spend time with family. It goes against what I have learnt about social media and I’m fighting ridiculous thoughts of ‘failure if I don’t post’.
I’m signing off for the weekend. If a post comes to mind I might post it, I might not. But it’s my choice. I’m not going to be a slave to it because I need rest.
So fellow exhausted friends. What are you going to do because I know you feel the same? Nothing is more important than your health.
So you can cancel the party. You can eat take away instead of the 3 course affair you planned. You can cut some corners and say no!
Your dream will be there on Monday (and the laundry) as will mine. And we will all be better off for it (perhaps not the laundry).
So see you Monday after your peaceful weekend.
No call to join my page, no pressure, just lots of love and huge hopes for your future. You can do it.
