Creative 4 The Mind

I don’t usually talk about my mental health but I’ve always kept it in and now that I’ve created this blog I can actually start to tell someone. In the end i just want to be happy and help others in my situations.

Mental health is something that occurs in most peoples lives at least once in their lifetime. In these times now we are more open about mental health and more aware of it which is good that because when I was younger I didn’t really understand why I was feeling sad and down and now I am more aware and i can understand how to cope with it.

If I was to write everything going on in my head right now, I really wouldn’t know where to start. I created this blog to get thoughts off my mind and to explain my feelings and how i got to…

Why it is a waste of time to have a clean house when crazy

Coping with Crazy

One of the hardest things when I am experiencing any kind of episode is keeping the house clean. I must admit that even when I am in a normal mood I am not very clean, and I really need to get rid of about 50% of the stuff in my flat (unfortunately my partner objects to me getting rid of his stuff for some reason).

If you’re seriously ill I would advise letting go of most cleaning. It doesn’t matter. Don’t do it and don’t beat yourself up over it. Don’t give it a second thought.

Some of you are probably thinking that it is extremely important to clean your bathroom and vacuum and mop and so on. It’s not. I once didn’t clean my bathroom for 2 years between house inspections. Do you know what happened? Nothing. I didn’t get sick, the bathroom wasn’t damaged, it wasn’t even that…

Shopping addiction: Oniomania

Education, Goal, mysimplegoal, Personal finance

My Simple Goal

Shopping is daily need and to meet it every consumer develops a behavior. Sometimes it is as per need while sometimes it is opportunistic. This opportunistic behavior of shopping is exploited and utilized by marketing czars.

images (1)Most common is display effect. All around advertisements try to influence a consumer. Normal shopping turns to occasional splurges. If not controlled addiction develops making ideal case of “Oniomania”.

Nature of flaunting aggravates it – allure of getting what everyone else seems to have. Loud noise of spending to save more is getting consumerism a measure of social worth. Shopping under influence leads to temporary high and very soon turns to emptiness and unsatisfied with their purchases by visualizing what was not purchased – that must be a better one and they turn to shopping. Cycle goes on and situation worsens. Level of dissatisfaction may be harmful to the extent that addicts may lose…

Teach Your Kids About Death.

children , death , grief , mentalhealth

Rosalie Writes

Here is an unpopular opinion: telling your kids their dog ran away, or frantically replacing the hamster with a live one before the kids return from school does more harm than good. I can hear some people now “how many kids do you have?” Well, none. “What makes you a parenting expert?” Nothing; however, my parents told me the truth, in an age appropriate manner of course. Some of my friends parents, chose not to be honest and I was more equipped to handle heartache than they were.

When I was between the ages of three to nine I had a large amount of animals. I had fish (so many fish), I had hamsters, birds, guinea pigs and even frogs. This was wonderful because it taught me responsibility and compassion for animals. I learned how to create a feeding routine and how to be gentle and patient with animals. I…

Another End of the World is Possible

You can read the whole article on Holly’s website. And here’s a link to an interview of her on Last Born in the Wilderness.

People will judge you anyway — so do whatever makes you happy

People will judge you anyway. So, do whatever makes you happy. Live your life as it’s your last. Let disappointment be the wind that pushes you up.

Above all, disappointments are a temporary bump on the road. It will be difficult as you travel through life.

But, you will be fearless and brave at the end. Think of it as a challenge. You were given that disappointment because you can handle it.

The girl that never grew up.

Khambalia

I grew up in the real world. I certainly am not an adolescent teen strung out on hormones, searching for acceptance from faceless, spineless people who are merely here due to circumstantial convenience rather than actually wanting to be friends with me.

I matured physically and intellectually because it was an inevitability, it is the course of nature that we age and ripen before we rot. That being said, I’m still totally a kid at heart. NOT AN INNOCENT INFANT, fuck no. I’m still a wild rebellious teenage little shit with daddy issues, apparently.

Appearances can be deceiving for although it may look like I grew up and out of supposed “it’s just a phase, dear,” angsty stylings, interests and quirks, I am just a master of knowing HOW TO ACTIN PUBLIC.

I really don’t need anything from you, my readership, my audience. Because it truly doesn’t matter what…

Nobody Cares About You? GOOD!

be your own boss , motivation , real talk

MAJOR MARVIN

I was not popular in school, and I was definitely not a ladies’ man. And I had a very painful adolescence, because it was all very strange to me. It wasn’t like I got beat up, but the humiliation and isolation, and the existential ‘God, I exist, and nobody cares’ of being a teenager were extremely pronounced for me.

Joss Whedon

There’s a magic trick I’ve recently picked up and it has proven successful in killing completely my desire to chase girls. Whenever I see a girl I’m attracted to and the desire to get her comes, I remember the times I’ve failed with all the girls I’ve had a crush on and it snaps me back to reality.

In other words I have quit the game on chasing women and focused more on improving myself. Chasing women will only chase them right out of one’s life. Men who are…

Good, Better, Best Perfectionism

I feel a compulsive need to be “good” and think only good thoughts, say only good words, and take only good action. And any time something goes poorly in my life, I tell myself I wasn’t good enough and I must have manifested it with some sort of negative thinking, and I must do better.
