Welcome to the Real Small Biz Blog with Cory from Cory T Creations LLC! Here, we will go behind the scenes. You will see the nitty-gritty. You will see the challenges and share in the achievements and joy.
SO much information! Anxiety, Depression, Sinus Irrigations??? Introduction to the new website earthscoreshop.com and some more conversation about Fair Trade, sustainability, biodegradability, and plastics!
On consumerism: "Don't buy more than you need, use things for as long as you can use them, and when you can't use them anymore, find a way to recycle them."
On PTSD, anxiety and depression: "For 14 years, I've been 'trying to have a better attitude' and feeling like there's something wrong with me and that I need to be a better person because I don't have a good enough attitude."
Cory's advice: "If you feel like this, try not to be hard on yourself, because really that's what I should be telling myself. Because I do, I get really hard myself. I still do, even after 14 years. I'm like, 'Why can't you cut this out', like it's something I can just decide to stop, you know, because that's what people tell you."
On when people say, "You just have to decide.": "Okay, well yeah, I've decided. I've decided a lot of times. This isn't the kind of thing that you just decide and then you're done. This is the kind of thing that you have to decide like a hundred times a day, every single day, because it always comes back and you have to decide, again. And I do, but it's hard, it's really hard. It's just an extra thing added on that maybe isn't for somebody else, to try to still go about having a regular life."
Until next time...
Stay safe, be nice to each other and we love all of you!
