Working Your Issues...

People think I am "anti-meds" for things like depression, etc; but I am more "limited meds", instead.

I personally believe people are over-medicated, these days - fewer and fewer people are facing their issues without ANY medication; if they actually deal with anything, at all. I believe it should be a healthy balance.

While I admit, there were, and still are, times I may "self-medicate" with food, etc; the difference between now and earlier in my healing process, is the awareness of my feelings and choices, and how they affect every aspect of my life.

I take responsibility for my own healing - yes, under the umbrella of my Counselor; and though I AM proud to have done it without medication, I judge nobody.

The point is the title - are you, or have you worked through your issues? Honestly, if you think you've never had any - ask yourself why you do the things, and make the choices, you do.

You don't have to live in your past, just be realistic, and admit you were affected by it.

This is part of the goal with my Daily Journal Prompts; and at times, my very existence - to get people thinking.

Thank you, have a good day, and be safe... #2021LATE ****** #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes
