    Days Before School Time: 🫣 or 😁??? #Fear #Anxiety or #Excitement #Confidence

    I am a few days away from starting a required mathematical logics course. When I think of the subject matter, 😯, my heart flutters. But as I focus on today while resting and watching old Poirot mysteries, I simply smile at the fact that another level of my schooling begins soon.

    Next week at this time, I WILL have homework or some class related thoughts filling my mind. However, today, days before this start date, I CAN rest, watch, and enjoy this day without any distractions thwarting my thoughts. So, I guess today’s emoji of choice will be the latter: 😁! I’m not living tomorrow or the day after, right now. Instead, I am living today, and can only live one minute at a time during this free day.

    Powerless

    I recently joined 'reddit' and posted a comment on a self harm scar. My comment was insensitive and I will not repeat it here. It was the reply that I received which really opened my eyes to my own trauma.

    The reply from the "redditor" was "I am sorry you are feeling powerless over your own body". I never thought about it this way. I know one thing for sure. The trauma took something away from me that day. It took my confidence and my care free attitude and left a bitter taste in my mouth.

    I want that happy go lucky kid back. The other side of the argument is finally growing up and entering the 'real world'. It could be a combination of both although I consider it was mostly my poor decisions catching up with me.

    12 long years have passed since I was assaulted and time has done little to heal the pain. I am just as angry and grief stricken as the day the incident occurred. I was not in control of the situation and maybe this is why I feel the way that I do?

    Revenge plays on my mind a lot and I catch myself drifting in and out of seeking vengeance. I have medication which temporarily assists in levelling my emotions and focusing on the here and now.

    My mind will play tricks on me from time to time; starting me off on a road of revenge only to lead me to grief and misery. I am of the belief that revenge will do little to heal my pain as the damage has well and truly been done.

    Confidence means feeling sure of yourself and your abilities — not in an arrogant way, but in a realistic, secure way. Confidence isn't about feeling superior to others. It's a quiet inner knowledge that you're capable.

    What makes it difficult for you to self-advocate at work or school? How about at home?

    It’s very common for folks to be comfortable advocating for themselves in certain situations more than others. There are many factors that contribute to a person’s comfort level in an advocacy situation: physical environment, previous experiences self-advocating in a similar situation, level of confidence, familiarity going into the situation, etc.

    What does your self-advocacy look like in different contexts? Do you find it challenging to advocate for yourself at work or school? What about in other situations? Why do you think that is?

    The Return/ Self Confidence

    I haven't been on this site in almost 3 years. Anyway, i was thinking about how i lack self confidence. I wasn't taught to follow my dreams or stand up for myself and it has affected me. I started a business last year and haven't done much in terms of finding clients. I've always been envious of those who have good families and are confident. Not many people i know have that.

    Does lack of self confidence hold you back in life?#Confidence #Anxiety #Fear

    Special Item

    OK. This is probably weird but I am giving it a try. So say you are going to a place, any place, doesn't matter, and you can't bring people or pets, so you have one item you are allowed to bring with you. What would your special item be? Have some fun with this, I hope! #Friends #Friendship #friendships #MightyTogether #MentalHealth #FamilyAndFriends #New #lonely #alone #NoOneFightsAlone #StrongerTogether #Together #SocialInteraction #social #wellness #EmotionalHealth #Health #relate #Chat #Share #post #safe #SafeSpace #Connections #Positivity #positive #Fun #Mindful #Mindfulness #Kindness #ActsOfKindness #ActOfKindness Self-esteem Self-worth #self -love #Confidence #Life #Lifestyle

    I found a new love!

    I recently started journaling, once a day, before I go to sleep. I usually write about what I did that day, both exciting things and typical/mediocre things. The great part is, I usually end up finding small things to be grateful for that I would otherwise not give much thought to, whether it be the people I was surrounded with that day or small, unnoticeable steps I took to reach my long term goals. I suggest every one to find a piece of paper and a pen, and just pour your heart out. I guarantee you will learn something new about yourself :) #Journaling #Gratitude #reflect #Confidence #Happiness #grateful #Writing #activity

    This group is now a private- full privacy- group!

    Hi everyone! We just made this group private instead of it being a publicly seen group.
    This means all group content will only be visible to members of the group.

    Now everyone in our group can feel completely comfortable sharing about yourself and anything about your life in here, and posting your own posts in here and no worries about letting us really get to know each other so we can achieve this group’s purpose-to grow new, genuine friendships because what’s in this group is only for us to see!

    New Friends Destination For Current And Soon To Be New Friends! #Friends #MentalHealth

    Doesn’t this image and idea look like a paradise?

    Link to join us in this new adventure:

    New Friends Ages 40-55ish

    We all came on The Mighty ultimately to make new, real connections and to grow new friendships to get rid of this terrible thing called loneliness/being alone that is not good for anyone’s mental health and we all want better mental health.

    We all want to have friendships too based on the simple fact that we are humans and humans need to feel connected to other humans.

    And the twist with this group, is to all pitch in to make this a place on The Mighty where we don’t focus on our illnesses, because we are more than our illnesses, so much more. And we don’t want to forget that about ourselves. We don’t want to have our personalities get lost, all of the different, cool, unique things that make us who we are as people.

    So let’s all pitch in and start just chatting about everyday stuff like you would with any friend, about life in general, sharing things about yourself- just a couple examples -your interests, something you found funny, etc., whatever you would think that this is something you would like to share with a friend, and having some fun being social- because we all know we need to really connect and keep growing new friendships with our mental health in mind.

    One smile emoji or even one word can start a friendship. Some of the most comforting words in the universe are “me too.” “Hello.” “How is your day?”…(if you don’t have another conversation starter or reply to join in).

    New friends can change your life and your mental health for the better.
    Add in anything to get the ball rolling and grow some new friendships here.

    We can’t wait to get to know You.
