I haven’t written or shared any content since the end of April. This is because I’ve been really busy in every aspect in my life.
However, here, 24 days before I turn 30, I would like to say that I’ve almost caught up to where life has been leading me.
As you know, at the time I wrote that last post, I was in the process of getting hired by my psychiatrist’s office at their other facility. That has since happened. Now, I am on the way to getting my Paraprofessional and CPS certifications. In the middle of June through my birthday, I’ll be heading to a wonderful training course with the CPS program in Georgia, and I couldn’t be more excited! Even now, a lot of the consumers that I work with really look up to me. It was a learning process too. I’m not the one who is the best at discerning situations, and now I’m getting the hang of it. I have a very good boss who is leading me in the right way, and all of the other staff are very helpful. I couldn’t be happier where I landed.
I have to say that now that I have three months under my belt working and volunteering where I’m at, I understand the other side of the mental health world a little better. I now understand that there are some people who do fail their consumers. I also know that there are people who will always look down on people who have mental illnesses as well. It really doesn’t matter to me what they think now. I would like to take you back to last year. I was going after the 30 day writing challenge, and on one of the days, I got a really negative comment. It was someone who perhaps I had talked to in my area a bit, and this person called me a mooch, and made ignorant assumptions that I wanted to date some of the people in the entry that I made, which I’ve since deleted. I think about that scenario, and I tie it into what I hear and see on a daily basis. Like me, some of these people need an honest chance, and someone to believe in them. I don’t think someone deserves to work with people who from the start have a preordained judgment on you, and sadly, for those who are a lot more broken, that is their reality.
As you all know, I do watch anime. However, the type of anime I watch mostly are ones with an average person going in and doing something extraordinary. I’m really drawn to them in the sense that I feel like I’m like that. I used to be so flashy and flamboyant and such, but in reality, I just felt like I had to be like that in order to feel average. Now, I think with how many people are on my side now, I have to think that some how I touched them in some way. Just like those average heroes in those animes who gain a lot of followers as the episodes go on, I feel like that has happened to me today socially.
Maybe I should let them in a lot more. I’m not really the best at that. Isolation is a big enemy of mine. Maybe it’s more of I don’t know what to do, now that in a societal view, I would be called normal. I don’t know, it just seems so new to me I guess.
Now, I go into the next phase of goals for myself. As I’ve said, I want to make a splash in the fighting game community in the next few years. Also, I have been doing an okay workout, and I would like to do some more with it. So, I’m going to study a bit of Bruce Lee’s workout regimen. He always spent a lot of time on fine tuning his body for fighting. So, I’m going to be adopting some of his stuff. I think in an overall sense, I just want to be a bit more consistent in my life moving forward. I feel like, that with the way things were going, I didn’t really have a lot of control of what I was doing. Now, I have a lot more, and it feels good.
But, I think that with the things I’m looking into and this blog, I can maybe be a hero to one or two people. So hopefully, all these things will rewrite someone’s future! Keep reading guys! I got some more stuff on the horizon!
