Grateful Post Number Five: Fortitude

I’m grateful for my fortitude.


For this segment of grateful posts, I write about my fortitude.

There have been plenty of times in my life where I had a huge amount of fortitude, but I didn’t know what it was or that my conscience was utilizing the most important part of my character traits.

I have plenty of traumas that haunt me to this very day and I fight the demons who play them on repeat in my head.

As of late, I have been going to therapy one time a week and meeting with my psychiatrist 2 times a month for a med check. In therapy, I face the traumas I endured in this life. I pray I have enough fortitude to embrace the wrongs in my life and heal with a new perspective and a range of undying forgiveness.

If you have been a follower for a while, you know I write about my mental health. I write when I’m in distress. I write when I’m manic. I write when depression takes its turn – if it will let me. I write to process my thoughts so they are not jumbled I side my head. I write to stop the spinning memories I am trying to forget. Each day I embrace my struggles with all the fortitude I can muster. Some days it’s a little, and somedays it’s a lot. Either way it helps me be brave, strong, and helps me to remain calm when all I feel is chaos.

I am forever grateful for my fortitude.
