Mental Monday: Reflection Pt. I

Loneliness is, to me, a double edge sword. It can be comforting, or it can be dangerous. Some of us loath it, while others find peace within it. However, the one thing we come to learn while being alone is that we use it as a time to reflect on the events that have happened... Continue Reading →

Mental Monday Special: Toxic Demons

The worse thing about having an ‘episode’ is falling back into your old habits. The one thing that put us on a dark path of separation and destruction. It was the same thing that made us best friends with the grim reaper. Begging for his cold embrace, to end our suffering once and for all.... Continue Reading →

Mental Monday: Getting Older

My birthday is three days away and this year I’ll be turning thirty years old. Yes, I know, I should be grateful to be alive where others will never get to see this age. But I am grateful, it’s just that when I sit here and think about what I have done in my twenties.... Continue Reading →

Mental Monday: Breaking Point!

Four in ten adults reach their breaking point sometime in their life. Whether that’s at home or work (mostly work), and sometimes people just don’t know what to do. They don’t know who to reach out too, whether that’s a friend or a family member. They’ll even try to seek out every outlet known to... Continue Reading →

“The child who is not embraced by the village will burn it down to feel its warmth.” Every family member has that one person that is the ‘oddball’ of the family. The ‘weird one’ or my personal favorite the ‘black sheep.’  We all have one in our families, whether you like it or not. Even... Continue Reading →

Mental Monday: Choosing You!

It has been a tough week for many of us. With everything going on with the protest, and the protest being hijacked by rioting and looting. Many, including myself, have been stuck in the middle of it all. I have watched as friends and families tore each apart ending lasting relationships over basic human rights.... Continue Reading →

Mental Monday: Memorial Day

This year, this…holiday. It hits different for a lot of us. We use this time to remember those that we lost throughout our lives. But most importantly we are celebrating this time to remember those that were lost during this pandemic. Not only to the virus itself but to those who lost their battle to... Continue Reading →

Mental Monday: Celebrating Friends

You know what’s the best way to fight your mental illness for a short while. By celebrating your friend’s achievements. Just recently I learned that my best friend passed her bar exam and now she’s going to be lawyer…or is she one already? I don’t know with these things, but the point here is that...

Mental Monday: Being Loved Pt 2

In my opinion, the most dangerous drug known to man is love. It’s addicting, it feels good, you’re not yourself. You’ll do anything in the world to hold on to it, but one wrong move and it’s gone. Your mind and body are beginning to go through withdrawals. You’ll do anything to get that love... Continue Reading →
