I can be a stubborn person (she said, in the understatement of the year! 😉)
I will sometimes get an idea of something in my head, how awful or horrible it might be, and completely cut off the possibility of it being beneficial.
I don’t love being closed minded like that, and I actively work to be more open minded.
Acupuncture was one of those things. I heard for years all the benefits, but all I hyper-focused on was •needles• being stuck into my body •voluntarily•, as in not to check my blood sugars or anything like that.
When you get as much blood work done as I do, voluntarily being poked with needles can be DAUNTING.
But… I FINALLY relented when I realized I needed help managing what was quickly becoming depression, and I’ve never looked back. In fact, I look forward to the release acupuncture provides!
The needles don’t hurt, my acupuncturist is freakin’ amazing, and the benefits are WORTH opening up your mind towards.
I remain so GRATEFUL that although it took me a while, I gave acupuncture a chance; it’s a safe, healthy release for the multitude of emotions.
Have you tried?
