My Heart And Soul So You Know

My heart and soul are in a low place. My old self seemed to have disappeared sometime in 2018. This new version of me has been around for awhile and its a person who has made the transition from being an extrovert to more of a introvert. My self esteem is also not at its best and that has something to do with my depression.

I choose to be a different sort of man/person who will admit his/their shortcomings and how he feels. Right now I can only be who I am in the moment. Sure I have moments of joy where I laugh but for the most part I have become someone different and I suppose that’s OK. The space to be myself is something I am grateful for because I can’t fake it very well.

    1. I enjoy your blog posts and look forward to them. I afform your thoughts that it’s OK to be a “different” person. So long as you are honest with yourself (and it certainly seems from your posts that you are), then it’s none of anybody else’s business!


  1. The beauty of this is that you are growing and accepting the changes you are making. You are continuing to express, heal, and be the amazing person that you are even when it may not feel like it for you. Here’s a hug. We don’t always have good days and continue to grow so much. Continue to be kind to yourself and love yourself.


  2. Depression is a tough one. I was there a lot in my 20s but have been spared for my older years. I shall add you to my prayer wheel. Keep going one day at a time Tony.
