Since I started this blog I’ve come to the conclusion that I have minimal discipline and writers block.
I made some free time and I would use this to my advantage to create content and put something out there in the world.
From a young age I have suffered from mental health issues, however despite being in the child’s mental health services for 10 years I never got any formal diagnosis other than a list of symptoms. I’m now 19 and have been paying to see a therapist for about 4 months and I say he has helped me cope with my issues more than i ever got from the mental health services.
With his help I have become more of a confident person because I have learnt to momentarily pull myself mentally from a situation and evaluate its outcomes, instead of making rash decisions which would have caused me to be worse off. Acquiring this skill, I believe has been the key to my success recently, as I’m able to stop my impulsive actions (for example, in instances when I have received negative comments about myself, instead of lashing out, I ignore them and treat them like I didn’t hear the comment), and make good choices to make me happy.
Despite not practicing Buddhism I associate with it a lot and I believe in Karma, and Yin and Yang. most people know what karma is but not many know about Yin Yang
This symbol represents the good and bad. the white half means good, the black half means bad (I don’t believe it was a race thing but i can understand why people would be offended), the white dot represents the good in bad and the black dot vice versa. I definitely believe in this because your positive action could have a negative impact on yourself or someone else.
I think through my therapy sessions and realizing what I believe in I’ve become a happier person. I think a lesson to learn is you have to learn about yourself inside and out before you can truly be happy and make good decisions.
