Do you ever feel like you're running on #Anxiety and #IcedCoffee ?

This sounds kind of funny... But ever since I started my new job.. my anxiety has been through the roof. It has been a #struggle for me because my level of stress is high because of all the events that happen. Working inside of a car dealership is difficult sometimes. I #Love what I do, but my #Job can sometimes be draining.

What do you do?

#Love yourself

we tend to always put others first when its convenient..we need to always remember to be gentle with ourselves as we matter..we do make a difference in this world and to others..we are loved and we are love..

its so important to remember that positive self talk goes a long way and i personally want each and every one of you to know that your loved 💗💯

Power of love #Depression #Anxiety #Relationships #Caregiving #FamilyAndFriends #Love #MentalHealth

I have been at the Orphanage in Indonesia for 6 days now. I am pretty exhausted. As well as teaching staff I have been conducting one on one financial counselling appointments with the staff, utilising my skills from my financial planning days.

Yet, energy seems to be replenished from interaction with the amazing children and staff. They are so grateful for the support and nurturing they receive. Some of their history is quite distressing but they focus on tomorrow and are grateful for today.

These has been an amazing opportunity and I am so gratified for the opportunity to be part of changing lives.

People having mental health issues are not aliens!!

“I wish people could understand that the brain is the most important organ of our body. Just because you can’t see mental illness like you could see a broken bone, doesn’t mean it’s not as detrimental or devastating to a family or an individual.”…. Demi Lovato

I personally always try to keep in mind, try to help, try to understand the problems faced by those who are fighting with mental health issues. l, myself, dealing with anxiety, panic attacks and depression so I can say that I understand these conditions better than other mental health issues.

I’m not debating here or exaggerating the fact which is worse mental health issues or physical health issues, but the ground reality, we all know that , stigma related to physical health issues is less than that related to mental illnesses.

Its my personal observation, experience and perspective that mostly family and friends avoid those who are dealing with mental illness, reason is ‘coz of stigma attached to it , that such people are always in negative zone and funny part is they think mental illness is contagious too. If they keep in touch with such people during their low levels, they get infected too, by negativity and toxicity.

Nobody wants that, though its not practically possible for anyone to be in zone full of positivity and optimism, but ‘coz being positive, optimistic are so much overrated concepts these days and yes, its part of social status too, the ‘in thing’ to talk/show in so called intellectual lobbies of society. But,everyone of YOU, who avoid us don’t know that ” We, who suffer from mental illness are stronger than you think. We fight to go to work, care for our families, be there for our friends and act ‘normal’ while battling unimaginable pain”.

Even in cases, where we are being neglected, leave us alone…most of us, are there for people around us ,’coz we believe that everyone is fighting their own battles, we respect it even if we are not able to understand it and above all, we know better than others that whether its being asked or not, we all need someone by our side. We believe its not okay to leave someone alone in their negative phase of life just ‘coz we want to safeguard our so called positivity!!

We don’t need much from you, What we need is your little understanding and acceptance that people dealing with mental health issues are not faking it, we have no intentions to drag you in our negativity or toxicity zone , we just need you by our side during our low phase, sometimes a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on, hands who hold ours to give warmth, love, feeling and assurance that we are not alone. What we need is your empathy and not sympathy.

And in case, if you can’t do this much, its a humble request that, please leave from our lives, it will be less painful than the dealing with situations where you stay with us during positive times and vanish during low phases…. pratyaya singh#MentalHealth #Stigmas #Love #Acceptance #help #Anxiety #Beingalone #mentalwellbeing

Since my recent time in the hospital I have been contemplating my life path & I have decided to step away from any activity in this group for awhile

I am choosing to shift my focus from my health to new opportunities. Through my recent ordeal with 9 days in the hospital I realized I don't want to spend so much time thinking and talking about my health. I have decided that in sharing my story repeatedly here and in my life I have been caught living in my past, and this has taken so much of my time & energy. My plan is to concentrate on being & living in the present and then use my energy to search and find things that give me joy and nourish my spirit and my soul.

I am thankful and proud that I have survived some very difficult times with serious health challenges and found the strength and spirit to fight through, however I just came to realize that this blessing of life has with it opportunities for new experiences, journeys and paths to explore, and I can't do that when I’m talking and thinking about being a survivor and even using the term professional patient to describe myself. I am so much more than that.

I am choosing to step aside from this group and try to create a life that isn’t focused on sharing about my health. Therefore I will be taking a break from being on The Mighty and leading this group. I appreciate all your support throughout this time and if you would consider keeping me in your thoughts and prayers I'd be very grateful.

There are now over 2,700 members in this group and I trust that you can all be there for each other and this will continue to be an active peer-to-peer community. Please read each other’s posts, respond with replies & comments, offer support and empathy, and don't be afraid to ask for help when you need it too.

Sending blessings for good health, peace, serenity and abundance to you all, and big virtual hugs,
