Finally in the process of getting the help I have been needing. I know they say to trust the process, do the work... One step at a time. Why does it seem like all I'm doing is waiting? Why do I get more anxious after an appointment than I am at the beginning of it? It doesn't help that when I have a psychotic episode they seem to be lasting longer and I don't trust my own thoughts or perception... This has all been a new eye opening journey but also a scary one because I'm just learning about my disorders and the symptoms from them which is definitely giving me some clarity for certain situations that have happened throughout my life but it's also disheartening. I live with so much guilt and shame, I can't help but wonder that if I had help sooner that maybe I wouldn't have all this regret. I know I shouldn't dwell on the past and focus on creating a better future, a better version of myself (whoever the help that is) but that's easier said than done.

Make your life your friend

Working on making the present moment your friend is a practice embraced by many who seek mindfulness and inner peace. By accepting and embracing the present moment, individuals often find greater contentment, reduced stress, and increased resilience. On the other hand, resisting the present moment can lead to frustration, anxiety, and a sense of disconnect from reality. While resistance might provide temporary relief or distraction, it usually doesn't offer a sustainable solution. Ultimately, learning to befriend the present moment can be a powerful tool for personal growth and well-being. How many people work on making the present moment their friend? On the other hand, how many people resist the present moment? If so, does it work?

Change is uncomfortable

It's so easy to hold yourself back from becoming your greatest self because what is required to do so is uncomfortable. Please don't become complacent with your transcendence. I know stepping out of your comfort zone is scary and we do so much to avoid it, but it's such a great gift to give to yourself. How do you push yourself to do this?

The power of working on yourself

One of the best things I ever did was to start investing in myself. Practicing good physical and mental health is so rewarding and the more you do, the more you can do. Best of all, you can do it for free. There are loads of things you can do at home to better yourself and you can learn a lot about yourself in the process. Do you see yourself in either of the two categories mentioned in the picture? What does this tell you about yourself?

The power of mindfulness

Here's an illustration I really like about how mindfulness externalizes thoughts so that you can watch them from a place of peace instead of fixating, fighting, and resisting them, which causes so much pain. Can anyone relate to this or practice it?

Forgiveness

One of the biggest obstacles I see with people and their mental health is saying "It's not that easy." I know it's not that easy. If it were easy, you would already be doing it. Having good mental health requires you do what is hard. One of those hard things is forgiveness. Many people will never apologize to you, and many will not even know they have trespassed against you. None of us are perfect. None of us are innocent. Please forgive each other otherwise the pain will just keep on spreading.

How do you speak

Please remember that having good mental health is not just about how you treat yourself, but also how you treat others. If you think wicked things of others, you will say wicked things about them, and fill your head with wicked thoughts, and feel wicked as well. However, if you do the opposite and bless others with every breath you have, you will also bless yourself and feel that peace. Can anyone relate to this?

Be the best you

I understand the need to find a partner in life. I understand the need to build, chase, and conquer as way to find this partner. But how many are trying to better themselves so that they may love themselves? Would you rather love yourself, or have someone else love you? Your answer to this question might indicate why there is so much suffering going on in your head. What do you think?
