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.

Pushed to get out and see nature #Depression #stuckindoors #FriendsForSurvival

I have been in a deep dark hole. I haven't seen my friends in over two months now. They came & picked me up. Took me to this secluded park to just take in the view & breathe the fresh air. First smile in a while... I think I popped my head out...

#Flashback on Double Date Night

Everything was going great. From all accounts we were about to wrap up the night. Last thing I remember is being ok. Next thing I remember is crying my eyes out to the point of actually throwing up.

We weren't planning to spend the night but did because it was nearly morning before I calmed down enough to accept that I was safe. Honestly I think I was just too exhausted to register fear. But the panic had finally stopped.

I woke up so embarrassed the next morning. My boyfriend assured me I was the only one who was. My friends acted like nothing off had happened. They insisted the whole incident was no biggie and just chilled till I was ready to start the day and talk about what happened.

Y'all I threw up on their porch. I kept everyone up hours past plans. I cried uncontrollably. I writhed in pain. I was disgustingly emotionally naked. I relived my worst traumas in their living room.

We talked over breakfast about what could have been the trigger. We tried to piece together the part my brain won't remember. And they listened again as I tried to figured out what warnings I must have missed. All in the hopes of me possibly recognizing early enough to try to stop it next time. It's not a guarantee. It's a baby step forward. It's trial and error.

And they want to know when the next double date night is.

This is why I call him my brother.
This is why I call her my sister.
This is why I call him my boyfriend.
They are part of my support group.
And they are more than I have ever dared wish for.

Looking for friends! #FriendsForSurvival #journey through life

Friends help shape you, inspire, comfort, let's you know that you are not alone. All things important! #Friends #Support


Is anyone wanting to talk? I'm just looking for a friend who understands. I suffer from fibromyalgia & another illness (docs are running more tests)



#FriendsForSurvival Hi guys could you help please?

Could you please describe what makes a friend, what makes a relationship work, how you interact, does it make you feel good more often than not?
Thank you in advance.

Who did you confide in today and why?

Since being diagnosed my circle has changed drastically. I realized that my family were not the best individuals to vent to. Talking to certain friends allowed a lot of unsolicited opinions and bad advice. It was heartbreaking. I believe that having someone to talk to throughout the day helps you heal. It eases the loneliness. It provides some comfort. Having people you can count on gives you a different kind of peace.

Today, I talked to my friend Brittany. She woke me up this morning with a motivational text that said “Never regret a day in your life. Good days give you happiness and bad days give you experience” i needed that! #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Depression #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder #Anxiety #supportsystems #FriendsForSurvival


funny the way the world works

I'm currently studying at tafe and haven't really made many connetions to my other classmates. like I'm not looking for friends, i already have them and they are the best!!! im just looking for people to talk to during the course like a colleague. But everyone's pretty unresponsive to my personality. even though my friends all say im the kind and thoughtful one. anyway there is one girl who comes to tafe one day a week and that is my fave day! she's only 19 and im 25 but we have so much in common that its amazing. from the moment i first spoke to her i felt like i found an actual friend, cos the way we met happened the exact same way as me and my bestie!!!!!

we both have toxic parents and we both have depression and anxiety. on different levels and i have epilepsy but we can talk about our problems at home and relate to one another. I've never had that happen before. we clicked from the very start...and i have a saying that i tell people "you can't force anything, if we don't vibe then we don't vibe".
anyway thanks to anyone who reads this i just wanted to share this because it makes me so happy #GoodVibes #Anxiety #Depression #FriendsForSurvival
