Today, I’m talking with Britney Grover! She shares her story about the amazing change that has happened in her over the last year as she has learned some tools to help her with her mental health. She’s learned how to take care of herself first so she can continue to pour into others.
Key Points from this Episode:
- Major life changes, like having a baby or having a spouse come home for deployment can trigger major emotions.
- Finding the right counselor who can teach the baby steps that you need are key to starting to heal.
- Remember that “thoughts aren’t real.” It can help calm the anxiety about things that haven’t happened.
- Figure out what things are non-negotiable for your mental health. Examples: prayer, scripture study, exercise, and sleep.
- Let go of “should.” Maybe things “should be” exactly as they are.
- If you need help, keep looking for the right counselor until you find somebody who clicks with you.
- “The God that I’ve come to know is the God that’s telling me to accept myself and telling me to love myself as I am, where I am, with what I’m doing, with what I’m accomplishing, exactly where I am.” – Britney Grover
