Non-Religious Words Of Comfort

There are a lot of different people out there, religious and not. There are those who believe in prayer but many who don't. Sometimes, the "I'm praying for you" is meant as a kind gesture but I've found that it's a religious write-off. It's the "I'm helping you without helping you" approach. But it's not… Continue reading Non-Religious Words Of Comfort

Dealing With Winter

Mm, this comes at the perfect time, doesn't it? I plan out all my articles at the beginning of the month so I promise, I didn't know that it would snow another six inches. Or get down to a high of -17 in the next two days. I know, winter can be tough. And yes,… Continue reading Dealing With Winter

“Joy Is A Choice”

This isn't the least controversial thing I've ever said. In fact, it might be one of the most controversial things I could say in the current culture of mental health and the culture of medication. But I'm saying it anyway. Joy is a choice. At least hear me out. If you're reading this article, like any of… Continue reading “Joy Is A Choice”

Enjoy Your Life

Everything you need to know is going to be in this very first paragraph. Enjoy your life. Not because life is short. Not because you're supposed to. Not because your religion, a book, or any motivational speaker tells you. Enjoy your life because you are worthy of being happy. If you're interested in why we might not enjoy our life… Continue reading Enjoy Your Life

Wake Up When The Sun Doesn’t

Daylight savings time is ending and we're about to fall back into brighter mornings (for now) and much darker nights. That doesn't mean that it won't be cloudy, rainy, or even...snowy when we open our eyes. Fall and winter are a time in many areas where the sun doesn't wake up for a while, if at… Continue reading Wake Up When The Sun Doesn’t

Why We Need To Feel Fear

In perfect time for Halloween comes a very important lesson: we need to feel fear. Many of you might disagree with me and hey, even I disagree with me...when I'm afraid that is. It's easy for me to tell myself that I don't need to feel fear. That I can take a different way. That I… Continue reading Why We Need To Feel Fear

What I Mean When I Say

“Everybody Says…”

"Everybody says..." is a phrase I am most guilty of saying. And it has been the biggest thing to hold me back in the past. Why? Well, to answer that, we first have to discuss who this "everybody" is. So what do I mean when I say, "Everybody says..." Everybody...that's a pretty broad term. About… Continue reading “Everybody Says…”

“I’m Not Depressed”

This might not apply just to me but I'm going to act like it does because I can only ever speak for myself. When I say I'm not depressed, I mean a lot of things. I'll list them out, then we'll jump into it. I am not actively in a major depression I may be suffering from a… Continue reading “I’m Not Depressed”

“I Don’t Regret Self-Harm”

Should I have done it? No. Do I regret doing it? No. Is it important that we break down the stigma surrounding self-harm? Yes. So in my head, what I've done to myself isn't a big deal. My scars have faded quite considerably and most times I've completely forgotten about it. But occasionally, I'll get some… Continue reading “I Don’t Regret Self-Harm”
