I'm a Sunday Girl - mental health chats

Other than the Blondie song I have no idea what the connotations of saying I'm a Sunday girl are but I'm going to give you my definition. 

I like Sundays, I now work on sundays, but I sort of wish everyday was like Sunday. I feel productive and like it's a day for preparation for the week ahead, but also a day for comfy, casual clothes, which at the moment are my favourite. I'm currently wearing Jeans and a stripey top, a bralette and glittery socks and I'm so happy. It's also a Saturday but we will ignore that bit...

On Sundays I feel calm and busy all at the same time, there's time to think on your own but also time to see other people and to work, whether it be at my actual job, or just uni work or reading or drawing or writing. 

I love Sundays. And I think the reason I love all those things about Sundays so much is that I struggle with my mental health. I cope, and I'm fine but that doesn't mean it isn't a struggle. I've had anxiety for a rather long time and recently realised I either have Seasonal Affective Disorder or Depression. I'm not just saying these things I would also like to point out, I've seen Doctors and I take medication and I suppose that makes it a serious thing? But Sundays are the one day of the week I feel good and like me and ready, the depression is still there, it doesn't go away but it doesn't bother me quite as much on Sundays.

Hence, Sunday Girl. (I'm also cold as ice cream but still as sweet)

One of my friends recently said that they believe if you can survive January, you can survive anything. After a more than hectic January I honestly could not agree more. A lot happened and a lot didn't happen and I honestly spent the entire month overwhelmed and lost in my own head. But, I survived and therefore I can survive anything and I'm going to live by this.

Here's to being a Sunday Girl and to every day being sunday for eternity.
