Blog post re-share: ~💚~ Welcome to Mental Mingling ~💚~ Mental Health Awareness Month Meet & Greet! #1 May 3, 2019 💚

This is something I have participated in this year.

This is something that Beckie started creating last year and is doing again this year, For “Mental Health Awareness Month” and to give other mental health bloggers a chance to meet one another via their blogs and through Beckie’s blog.

Beckie's Mental Mess

Your illness does not define you. Your strength and courage does.- - Unknown - Inspirational Mental Health Awareness Quotes #quotes #quote #happyquotes #postivequotes #inspirationalquotes

Hello!  Welcome to “Mental Mingling” The first out of five weeks where you get to meet old and new bloggers alike in the mental health community.

I had started this a year ago, and I found that it was a great resource to all bloggers that deal with mental illness/disorders to meet one another, learn about one another’s stories, show support toward your fellow blogger, make acquaintances, and in most cases… Make Very Dear Friends! 💚

Blog post re-share: “It’s rant time…” by A Dad trying to cope with the loss of his partner and becoming a single parent.

This a blog post re-share, after coming across it via another blog I follow. After reading the post myself, I definitely felt it was a re-share too. I totally agree and feel the same about the topics mentioned in this post. The post link below, will take you directly to the post.

Blog post re-share: To Hell With them — The Written Addiction

A brilliant inspiring post. Do take a read.

Moving away from the old programs, I agree, there are times when we look around, we look at ourselves, we look at our attempts to change, and then we shake our head because we think, “Why bother? It’s not working anyway.”Then we sabotage ourselves without even noticing. We create our own self-fulfilled prophecy. We fail […]

Blog post re-share: Break Free From The Stimulation Nation — MakeItUltra™ Psychology

I have talked about in the past how I don’t use apps in my phone’s for anything, other than games, which I play maybe an hour, but not every night. As for emails and blogging, which is my main use, I log into them using my browser. I log in this in way because I am choosing when to check, but also I am on only a certain amount of internet each month. But even if I was to be lucky and have a contract with unlimited internet, I would still do it this way, just like when one time I had home internet, I will check when I am ready and not be bombarded with notifications alerting me to every alert I receive. I like my quiet time, but I know people, or have seen how people cannot resist after every notification to look.

This blog post re-share asks when was the last time you sat alone in the quiet without anything, or anyone to distract you, including not holding your mobile phone and tips how to reduce stimulation and enjoy silence.

Blog post re-share: From In The Classroom: Written for The Bullied Kid

As someone who has experienced the effects of bullying and coming across this post, I share in case there is a reader who is experiencing bullying right now. I hope you find these words comforting. I wish I had read something like this when I was younger.

The Written Addiction

I know right now that everything seems crucial.
Your friends, popularity, the kids in class, the things you do, the music you like, the jokes you tell, even the clothes you wear are things that revolve around a crowd.
Not everyone is the same, which is a good thing. But even when we are different, truth is we all just want to get along.

Blog post re-share: Morning has broken — Peacock Poetry

A great post. Do take a read and get inspired.

Every morning is really a fresh, new beginning to live life according to your values. In the last couple of months I have developed a ritual of doing a short meditation before getting out of bed followed by setting myself an intention for the day ahead. This habit is really helping me to feel grateful […]
