DISCLAIMER: I am not a certified doctor OR psychiatrist in any way. I am pregnant though and I have done my research on this topic and feel very passionate about it. My mental health and the health of my baby is the most important to me. The information in this article will be from my own research, conversations with my OBGYN at NYU and my experiences with my own anxiety/depression thus far in my pregnancy. Thank you.
There will be many times in life where things may not appear like what they seem. We live in a world where no one has an example. Their example is either dead or alive. And some might even say that their example is a famous person, who they know nothing about. This idea of living bothers my soul because if you really think about it logically, we are all fake. We are all copying and pasting our lives to be like people we don't know. Including myself. How can I say that I live a life of control, but I'm underneath it? This kind of control is formed by society and I'm tired of adapting to it. I'm here to help y'all break this chain.
Lately, I've been dealing with a lot of inconsistency and quite frankly, I don't want to be. I am consistent. I surround and want to be around people that are consistent. I am someone that I do what I see, but when it comes to certain situations, I don't feel like it's an obligation only because I am also a person who gives you what you give me. (Like consistency). If you don't practice being consistent with everyone and everything you do, consistency will never be an aspect in your life. When it comes to understanding people or understanding yourself even, you have to allow yourself to understand that it's OKAY if you don't do things the right way and it's OKAY if you don't do things how your family/people in higher power say that you should do what you do best.
