I just finished reading #autumn
by Ali Smith and unfortunately I haven’t enjoyed as much as I hoped I would. I thought the whole prose style to be a bit redundant and pretentious. It read a lot like a slam poem to me, more than a story. I wonder if it’s just the way Ali Smith writes, as this was the first novel I read by her.
On another note, today is #mentalhealthmonday
and as last week I forgot to post, this time I want to share something that happened to me last week. -
Long story short, I had a bad anxiety attack. I hadn’t had one like it since... Well, I can’t even remember when the last one was. I felt quite bad about it, I thought all that hard work had been for nothing. But I pushed through it and the next I went gym, I saw the friend I stood up the night before because of the attack, and I went to work. 48hours later I was even in another country. -
This is to say, never believe your thoughts when you’re in the midst of anxiety or panic. They never say the truth. The lie to you as your worst enemy would. I know it’s hard, cause they’re YOUR own thoughts, but surprisingly, they can lie to. Believe me. Don’t believe them.
Lastly, I shoutout to @wherebookscollide who started this beautiful #mentalhealthawareness
