As many of you know who follow my blog, I am involved with a local mental health organization. One activity I am involved in is telling my story to others.
Yesterday, there was an email sent out that there is a new location that wants regular speakers. At first, it sounded great. Telling my story twice a month would get so much out there and maybe allow someone else to come forward.
Then I took overnight to think about it. I have applied to start a degree in social work. The content of the classes may be challenging and I am sure that there are going to plenty of assignments.
Stress triggers so much. Even though I want to get out there and tell my story, I think that it is best if I focus on school and my ultimate goal.
I am still going to think about this some more, yet I need to make sure to fit in time for self care.
