I'll sit in the Dark with You #CheckInWithMe #DistractMe

When you can't see the Light

I'll sit in the Dark with you

I know this is from Alice in Wonderland but it's very apt for many of us with mental health problems and especially suicidal Ideation and suicidal thoughts.

So know that we are here for you on The Mighty.
Always n forever.
I'll sit in the Dark with you.

Love n hugs Tj #Life #Love #Hope #Family #Friends #Selfcaretoolbox #Selfcare #Bekindtoyourself #BeBrave #MightyTogether #NeverAlone

What item brings you comfort?

Sometimes small but familiar items can keep us grounded on days when we're struggling. That's why we hope you'll tell us about a tangible object that brings you comfort. Who knows, your item may be just what another Mighty needs in their coping toolkit.✨

Free Audiobooks to Help You Along Your Way :)

Hi everyone!
I love listening to audiobooks, and found a way to do it for FREE. If you have a phone and a library card, there are apps (I use one called Libby, but I encourage you to explore) that allow you to access your local library's audiobook collection from your phone. No library card? No problem; as a community resource, they're absolutely free to sign up for 📚❤

Some books that are helping me are Ask and It Is Given by Esther Hicks, and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg.

I hope this little tip helps you equip yourself with the tools, knowledge, and encouragement you need on your journey. Much love to you 🌻

Some days

Many days I think everything is my fault:

Oh. You re-worded this letter I wrote? You think my words were not enough or inappropriate?

Ah. You did not understand me when I said, please just email me your concerns instead of the meeting you requested AFTER office hours? Did I say my words wrong? Or do you have complete disregard to my end of it?

Wow. You just moved my people around without me knowing? Are you undermining my position - the one you put me in? Do you not respect me as much as I respect you? Why not?

And then today, I thought: what if I make everything someone else’s fault and shrug it off? It won’t be easy for me, of course. My default setting is that it’s my fault. But what if I slide that button over and make it everyone else’s fault? Will that make me feel differently?

Because, hey, I see Depression and Anxiety walking hand in hand in the horizon. Stepping jauntily as if in glee and moving towards a picnic. And they’re walking towards me.

I need to have my tools to protect me. Instead of creating a defense like I always do, what if I create an offense? Will that work?
