Today had been an example of an extremely positive, good and stable day. It’s the kind of day that I want to have everyday despite feeling terrified of it and still wanting to cling on to feeling sad.
I will definitely write more later as I have a lot of reflection to do – both on this day itself and the therapy session that I’ve had – but for now I’ll leave you with this.
As some of you know, I’ve been attending a series of mental health awareness workshops held on campus called the “Lifesaver Mental Health Series”. Today’s session was on “Cultivating Resilience”, co-presented by the Coordinator of the Office of Health and Wellness Promotion (HWP) as well as the Assistant Director of Outreach and Partnership of the Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS). I really love these two people, despite only knowing them for the short time during these sessions. They’re well informed, friendly, passionate and just really fun to talk to.
I had an amazing time learning about resilience and learning this really important life skill. I hope that I can keep practicing it and I can help share this with others so that we can all learn to be more resilient in life!
In another post, I’ll talk more about what I’ve learned and how you can also learn resilience.
The only sad thing is, this was the last workshop. I really enjoyed having conversations with people about mental health and hearing other people’s opinions and ideas! I am super interested in getting more experiences like these in the future and I hope to be able to have a chance to share so that others can be helped too!
