I have been open about being a victim of childhood sexual abuse and my daily struggle with the psychological repercussions of those acts. Recently, I got a new job and on Tuesday, a male coworker crossed the line by making very vulgar comments towards and by grabbing and pulling up my shirt….
I have been playing this seesaw game for almost 5 years now and it is time I called it quits. I need to leave this vacant playground, go back to the classroom and embrace life’s lessons. This vacillated attitude I have towards a number of situations must discontinue.I just cannot and should not…
Life puts you in bad situations, bad relationships, and bad friendships so that you can appreciate good ones when they come along. If you keep finding yourself in “bad”, maybe life is trying to get you to see and appreciate the good that’s either right in front of you, is coming to you, or that you foolishly let go of. Pay attention; life is always trying to tell you something.
Right now, I’m at a crossroads. I don’t have a compass. So I don’t know what direction to go in. So I guess I’m going different ways trying to figure out which path is best. It can be kinda scary going somewhere you’ve never been before. But it’s cool. Because once you been there once or twice, you kind of get a sense of direction.
In the world that we are in today, there is a constant sales pitch for take this or that pill to cure your depression or anxiety or other normal mental conditions. We all feel and face trials and tribulations in our life and it is normal to go through phases where you don’t feel like you are one hundred percent. But in my opinion that doesn’t mean that you have to resort to a pill to help you.
The magic bullet in my opinion for helping alleviate a lot of our mental worries and concerns is exercise and nutrition. I believe that if you know and research enough on certain supplements, nutrients, and exercises it can teach you a whole lot on how to control your emotions a little bit better.
I am not selling a “cure all” and if you exercise and eat healthy, that you will never feel anxious, depressed, or hurt again. But what I am selling you is there is a healthy alternative that is in my opinion much stronger than any pill you could ever take.
If it scares you, that’s probably a sign that it’s exactly where you need to be, what you need to be doing, or who you need to be with. We tend to be scared of the things that will take us out of our comfort zone, but sometimes, true happiness lies just outside our comfort zone. If it scares you, do it!
“When I say, “I love you,” it’s not because I want you or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a person.”—Joss Whedon (via pieties)
