To share or not to share?

Ever have a day where you want someone to talk to? But for them to truly listen…. Not to react or respond. Just sit there so you aren’t alone. But I feel like now a days that’s so hard to find.

Sit with me in my darkness, even if it doesn’t make sense to you.

Dear parents/guardians: If your kid(s) is a teenager or if they become one, please listen to them | TW family, misrepresentation

I’m so sick of the common trope seen in media like many TV shows and games that portray teens as “they think they can do whatever they want”, as folks with an attitude, or as folks who just talk back to their parent(s). I’m 20 1/2 years old, I don’t have kids or teens, but even I know that this is bullcrap.

Please listen to teenagers, and for goodness sake, do not assume that them defending themselves or standing up for themselves is the pure same thing as having an attitude (my mother always made that same mistake when she used to be mentally abusive)!

Especially if they’re not fully straight/heterosexual, if they’re transgender/non-binary/genderqueer/etc., polyamorous or non-monogamous, struggling with or identifying as a part of anything else that’s outside the societal norm, struggling with illnesses, struggling with neurodivergence/disabilities, or struggling with mental health and/or trauma. Please, I beg you. Don’t ignore them or excuse them for these ignorant stereotypes!

Forgive Yourself

Choose each day to forgive yourself, you are human, imperfect, learning and growing.
There is no sense in punishing your future by living in the mistakes of your past. Forgive yourself for not knowing what you didn’t know before you learned it.
Take heart in the knowledge, strength, and growth opportunities each trial inevitably teaches you--and move on.
There is no one you will talk to more than yourself. Be kind, loving, understanding, compassionate, and supportive.
Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship that you have.
And remember:
🌻 The past can’t be changed, but the future is full of possibilities.
✋🏻 Opinions don’t define your reality.
🤗 Everyone’s journey is different
🤔 Overthinking will usually lead to sadness.
😊 Happiness is found within.
💭 Your thoughts affect everything about you.
😁 Smiles are contagious.
🫶🏻 Kindness is free.
👌🏻👉🏻 It’s okay to let go and move on.
🥠 People usually end up with what they truly deserve in the end.
⏳ Have patience. Things get better with time.
🫂 Hugs!!

Have you ever?

Have your ever felt like no one understands you?

Like you are alive but yet you feel like you are also dead

Have you ever tried to reach out or talk

But then, you are like 'nah, they won't get it'

Have you ever felt so anxious,

you masked it with ridiculously lame and 'weird' humour or sarcasm?

Just to make it look like you are super chill but you are really just nervous

Have you ever wanted to win a stranger's heart

By giving them random compliments or by trying to make them smile or laugh

Secretly thinking to yourself that this is exactly how you feel everyone should be and treat each other

Have you ever been so naive to ignore the bad in someone and focus solely on the positives and look at the good in everyone?

Have you ever been so foolish that you've tried to help and support or cheer up someone that has repeatedly hurt you and you know does not care about you and probably would not do the same in return? Yet, you do it anyways?

Have you ever just stared into space, zoned out and smile...

Imagining your perfect little dream world

Imagining Utopia

Have you ever been so naturally 'high' that people have assumed you drank or did drugs?

Have you ever felt happy inside but on the outside felt scared to express or show it because of well, so-called evil eye

Have you ever not believed in superstitions yet still been anxious and overthink your interactions due to them

Have you ever just been happy for no reason at all like a child

Have you ever... just spontaneously wrote a post like this without even thinking?

Impulsivity can be fun but it can be exhausting...

Humour can be fun but be tiring...

Good things come and go; it is okay to feel not okay and for bad times to also come, they also go.

Don't stop being you due to the bad moments or days

KEEP SMILING :) :) Your energy is contagious and is needed to make the world go round - YING YANG - hippie style

Is giving up for my wellness is wrong?#wellness #listen to your ♥ #let it go

I have tried lots of things,lots of courses. But being consistent is not so easy for me.i cant tske pressure. I cant take challenges.i cant take stress.whatever it is if i dont find my #comfortness i just give up
Might be it could be sound like worthless or looser,but when i see people dont care about others emotions or people are not understanding, then i think if they think they are right then why dont i think like that too.
Every time i start to think about career change or start up a new thing that interests me most i am very much optimistic i can do it!!!!
But at some point in the middle of the course if any thing happens like personal life problem,over work load,over stress it hits me really bad.
I start to think,i should not have taken the course at first place.i start to break inside.i cant take changes.
I get overly surroundings start to bite me.
All i want to do is stay at home,make tea and watch movie or netflix,doing house chores... I just want to enjoy my life like that.
I get criticism a lot from my parents,relative or friends.they push me,advice me,suggest me do this do that....but i know how much hollowness inside me just keep me in my bubble...

What advice do you have for parents of teens who are navigating illness?

I wanted to share a quick but Mighty listen from the “Child Life On Call” podcast with The Mighty’s very own Community Content Producer Kat Harrison!

Listen to Kat discuss what it was like as a teenager navigating living with chronic illness. She talks about the importance of letting teenagers lead the way when it comes to boundaries and conversations around mental health.

The episode also delves into being intentional with how much families should discuss medical challenges and the importance of maintaining autonomy and integrity as a person first, diagnosis second.

Listen to the episode here:

I want you to listen pls #listen #help

I feel so demotivated all the time. I don't have the energy to do anything. I am not eating enough. I don't go out often. I have fomo too I guess. I want to sleep all day long . I just want to lay on my bed forever. I live with my family, but I just stay in my room. Sometimes tears just rolls down for no reason. I am irritated all the time and because of that I speak rudely with my parents and my friends and then I feel guilty about it. I have a same old routine, get up, take classes, eat, YouTube, study, eat, sleep, I cannot change it too because apparently I have to "study" a lot.
I can talk to my friends about what I am going through but I feel they won't get it. So here I am.
