The greatest key to mental health

Practicing mental health exercises and being at peace with yourself and your situation has nothing to do with the obstacles that will constantly be around you. Even if you did remove the greatest challenge of your life, another greatest challenge would present itself. Mental health is all about building yourself and removing your demands for the way the world should be. By all means, strive to make the world a better place, but don't wait for that to happen before you love yourself. What do you think?

Also, I'm so grateful for all of you and would love to get to know you all better outside of The Mighty, so if you're on Instagram, feel free to reach out at:

~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. 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 by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

Motivational Monday: Every Day is a Battle, but We're Conquerors

"Every day is an absolute battle. I don’t care what anyone says. You have to wake up and say to yourself, ‘I accept that I have diabetes, and I’m not going to let it run my entire life.’"- Bret Michaels

Every day is a battle, but with acceptance and dedication to managing this condition, you can overcome the challenges of diabetes and lead a fulfilling life. Remember, you are not alone, and with the right mindset and support, you can conquer this.

We're not defeated, we're conquerors!

I'm new here!

Hi, my name is Jellybelly32340. I'm here because
I developed prostate cancer. I immersed myself in the study of health and nutrition. FFiber is the secret Dr. Denis Burkitt 20 years in Uganda, a country of 10 million people 150 rural hospitals. 1971 Interview. Far more fiber, far more starch, far less fat, far less sugar, far less salt, abolish fried foods. Eat more brown bread. Top two. More fiber. Less fat. Western countries diet has too much fat sugar and salt cause sickness/ diseases. Western countries diet 15 grams of fiber, 80-100 grams of stool increase risk for chronic diseases. In India/ sub Sahara countries diet 100 grams of fiber 300-500 grams of stool exempt from Western diseases.

Americans eat 240lbs to 300lbs of animal products each year. Meat Consumption in the U.S. Is Growing at an Alarming Rate

The importance of falling

It's so easy to wish to redo the past or remove the trauma that hurt us the most, but if we did that, how much would we grow? The only reason I am here, running this group and with the education I have, is because of my pain. Take that away and you take all this away too. You can't have strength without weakness or growth without challenges. Are we not given the gift of immaturity so that we may also experience the gift of maturing? Are we not knocked down so that we may stand up? Do we not all have to die, so that before that, we may live?

Also, I'm so grateful for all of you and would love to get to know you all better outside of The Mighty, so if you're on Instagram, feel free to reach out at:
