    A lot has been said over the past few years about taking in as much on your plate as you can possibly complete at any given time. So this gave way to promoting the culture of saying No when it is most required. And it is an amazing thing to do to take care of your mental health. To make sure you are not slogging off more than required. It helps you focus on a lot of other things in life that need looking into. And honestly it's a great way to de-stress as well.

    Now while we have promoted the idea of Saying NO to a really large extent. No one is talking about how to “Accept” a No. Let's face it.. it does a lot of damage to your mental health as well when you are on the opposite end of that table. And that part has not been looked into as much.

    We humans have a habit of planning things way ahead. 5 year goals , 10 year goals and what not. But what do you do when you miss just one of them by a mere issue of luck or technicality or whatever you want to term it. For us highly structured creatures, the world comes crashing down. We feel that years and years of efforts and hard work have all led us to Nothing. It's really stupid how we stop looking just a step ahead. Just around the curb is the History you were meant to make. If you stop here, thinking that's the end of the road. You just never get there. And No it's not the fault of the singular person who made a decision at that point that you have not become the person you envisioned yourself to be. It is rather You. Coz Battles are not lost because of the enemy's strength. You lose your battle the moment you lose the confidence and conviction on Yourself.

    What would the world be like if Edison gave up after his first attempt? Would the world have known the Magical world of Harry Potter it so dearly loved if J K Rowling gave up the 1st time some editor rejected her manuscript? It is a very crucial skill that we need to develop in today's day. Yes, Resilience is a Skill. It is a much demanded skill as the world goes through massive recession, wars and what not. How you process a failure, a rejection or any form of a “No” is pivotal in changing the world’s economic landscape.

    Never,never,never,never give up!! You can do it.

    Mental illness is not something to be taken lightly. I've seen good people go bad as a result of their mental health, but what I'm trying to say today is that you should never let your mental health define who you are. Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement, and without it, nothing is possible. Great minds, such as John Forbes Nash Jr., an American mathematician who suffered from schizophrenia for a long time, overcame this challenge and made groundbreaking economic discoveries. Nothing can beat a determined soul; this is proof of optimism.

    You can do it!!

    Stay strong someday everything is going to be fine.

    Life hasn't been easy for me for almost eight years now. I've had all kinds of pains, starting with my stomach. I always felt as if something was burning inside my stomach, so I went to the hospital, but nothing was found, and that's when my depression began. This pain lasted three years as I tried various solutions to my problem until one day I came across a doctor who diagnosed me and treated me, but things got even worse when I had this panic attack. After witnessing a terrible situation for nearly four years now, I have suffered from a variety of mental illnesses, including depression, anxiety,occipital neuralgia, migraines, headaches, and alcoholism; at times, I even have suicidal thoughts. I've tried everything, but nothing seems to be working, but I've made a promise to myself not to give up no matter what.

    And I believe that everything will be fine someday... I am a lifelong optimist who never gives up.

    Growing Pains

    Back in the day,

    We used to play outside till dawn

    Now, we're just another government pawn

    Back in the day,

    We used to live, laugh & grow

    Now, we are forced to work our asses off bro

    What is this shit? (mind my language)

    Death is a trap to try and get us to submit?

    As kids, we couldn't wait to be adults

    Now, I reflect and I am like that was truly nuts!

    The days when we could cry and be comforted

    Childhood turned to adulthood and those days plummeted

    Now, we're struggling to make ends meet, Who would have thought, childhood was only a treat

    But it's life,

    So put away that knife

    It is what it is -

    God is good, all is his

    Better days are ahead

    So, go and continue to chase that bread!

    How do we talk to our children about our PTSD diagnosis?

    Today is National PTSD Awareness Day. I see each and every one of you and I believe you. Sending big virtual hugs your way.

    On to our topic for today:

    It may not be necessary for a parent to disclose their trauma and mental health struggles to their children. But, for many it can be helpful to explain to their children why certain behaviors may be occurring within the home. It can help alleviate fear, self blame and even stop the chain of intergenerational trauma for children to be armed with the knowledge that a parent may be experiencing their own challenges. It can also be a powerful way of eliminating the stigma associated with seeking out mental healthcare as an adult.

    Lea does just this with her own daughter:

    Have you discussed your mental health diagnoses with your own children? If so, what was helpful in doing so and how has it impacted your relationship with your own children?

    #Believe IN ONE SELF.

    Todays post is called believe in one self because if there is one thing that growing up with Cerebral Palsy has taught me it's to believe in one self.I had to over come many hard lessons as far as my Cerebral Palsy is concerned but that's ok with me because as a person with Cerebral Palsy you have many challenges and obstacles that you have to face through out your lifetime .I've had many people in my life that helped me see the bigger picture within my Cerebral Palsy and for that I'm truly blessed. Life with Cerebral Palsy isn't easy by any means and I'm not quite sure where I will end up or what the future has in store as far as my Cerebral Palsy goes but I know as long as I keep living by my new found hope and keep repeating the words believe in one self over and over to myself I can do it even if it takes sometime to get there.

    Life will never stop sending you triggers and obstacles to deal with. It is therefore up to you to conquer these challenges within yourself.

    Does anyone have tips for dealing with the seemingly endless challenges that life presents? I try to find the gold within the situation….there is always something there! And I use mindfulness to not let thoughts get me down! Can anyone relate?

    Thanks for sharing your experiences and suggestions.

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who writes a new post or comments within posts below by giving them a ❤️ I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude with a simple heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your support.

    That’s how this group can be the most helpful… “listening” to and supporting each other!
