9 of Cups (Reversed): Not Okay and It’s Okay

i’ve been feeling very emotionally drained these past couple of days. yesterday i shed a couple of tears over it and today as well. it’s also mercury retrograde.


some things that are coming up for me:

  1. distrust of people and their intentions
  2. the want to be vulnerable around others + private and over it at the same time
  3. loneliness
  4. loneliness + thoughts of ex
  5. feeling stepped over and manipulated
  6. tired & drained. feeling physically, mentally, emotionally heavy
  7. insecurity, anger & short temper
  8. very busy mind. lack of sleep
  9. wanting to ignore my mind & feelings.
  10. overwhelmed

some things i’ve noted:

  1. i feel overwhelmed when i give my time to others more than i give to myself
  2. i feel better when i dance & drum. i usually avoid these when feeling overwhelmed
  3. i feel better when i am honest and vulnerable around the right people and myself
  4. it’s important to keep harmonious relationships w/ people who care about me
  5. i am surrounded by people who love and care about me

some things that might help with being overwhelmed:


  1. ending projects i’ve already started before starting new ones
  2. remembering that i am love and that i am surrounded by love
  3. remembering that people who really care about me will always accept me at the end of the day
  4. saving money
  5. spending more time taking care of myself alone (no social media) + relaxed
  6. playing meditation music at night
  7. not carrying so much on my shoulders: if i need help, get help
  8. writing things down
  9. spending time in nature
  10. accepting myself and how i feel
