Fire in the Skies

All of a sudden the leaves were gone The pages were turned, the end of the song But the Skies are still rich with fire From every colour between red and blue Maybe there are some things that never end And for those that do, there’s a new beginning instead.

Close Your Eyes

We all have battles we face, we all feel like it's too much sometimes, that's okay. Find the things that help you to deal with all that. Getting out to move, breathing techniques, closing your eyes, repeating a certain phrase, getting out of the room, etc. This is doable, we just need to find what fits us.

Relationship Crucibles

I think that there is often a misconception, that once you get into a relationship the mental health issues will disappear, cause you're happy now right? Not alone or craving love anymore cause it's at your fingertips. Alas that's not how reality works. Just because I couldn't at this point combine taking care of my mental health and thriving in a relationship doesn't mean it's impossible. There are so many people who have managed to make the combination work and given it their own beautiful form.

Alone

I think it's our responsibility as people to let each other know we're there for them. We're not made to be alone, and we can all do our part. See someone alone? Go sit next to them. Invite that person who you usually don't talk to. Be kind to each other, you don't know the battles they're facing. Feeling alone? contact someone you trust, or even here me. 

Breathe: Chaos to Calm

In the USA alone 40 million adults above the age of 18 are affected a year by anxiety and panic attacks. That's an insane number. I've had my fair share of anxiety leading to panic attacks, some that would leave me restless for days and not know which way to turn. It made me desperate to find some kind of solution because burying it definitely was not helping. I figured there's gotta be some kind of way to make this work cause I noticed in every part of my life it would crumble when I was in these modes.

Self Love and Trust

How are we supposed to love others, if we can't even love ourselves? I heard something along those lines in church and felt personally criticised. Of course I can love others, I love them so incredibly much, but myself? no that seems to be something I've never truly been able to do. I've been content with who I was, what I looked like, but loving myself had never been part of that. It seemed so easy to love others, I could give away every ounce of me loving others and I would do it in a heartbeat, but taking just a part of that for myself just didn't quite seem plausible.

What Saying Goodbye Feels Like

Goodbye's are the most inevitable things in our lives. They're the most painful yet at the same time the easiest. We are so used to saying bye to people that it becomes habit, a routine. Most of the time thinking in the back of your head, 'I'll see you somewhere again' cause that's the life we have.
