Hey.. Goodbye To Negative Thinking.. Hello To The Real World..Of Positive Thought’s…Again โœŒ๐Ÿผ

Hey my beautiful people…..โ™ฅ๏ธ

As you may have noticed, I’ve been away for a while… taking a break with family, and friends, and then concentrating on my new job…continuing my training..week by week I’ve been a very busy ๐Ÿ!! It’s been exhausting…

And now at last I have some free time…thank the lord.. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

What as inspired me to do this post.. is that we should focus on our goals and dreams in order not to let negative thinking ruin our lives….and get the better of us..At this precise moment I’ve found it a little difficult to feel comfortable in my new job…and I started thinking negative again and letting my brain go into overdrive.. in which I seriously hate,”yes I know it’s a very strong word” but at times it can get out of control…but all thatโ€™s about to change..again!!

But here is the million dollar answer of what I was thinking:

Maybe I’m taking things too personal again.. like I did before, can I do well in this new mental health profession, and the answer is YES… I can, maybe when I’m comfortable in my new job, I will absolutely love it…and that is why I keep pushing myself forward everyday….to succeed, as now I’ve had my promotion.. of senior care role.. and I’ve bonded with my unit I’m working on… and I adore the residents.. and they are becoming quite attached to me, so at least something feels right in my heart about this job…

I was struggling a little while ago, and trying to come to term’s with negative thinking… I kept getting emotional, depressed, and extremely tired..I thought what do they think of me, do they like me, can they see that I’m a caring person…thinking am I doing this right โ€œyou knowโ€ am I doing that right… my overthinking was definitely coming back…and spiralling out of control..๐Ÿ˜ฅ itโ€™s extremely hard when you have left your old Job… of 22 yrs, and that Iโ€™ve now come out of my comfort zone… but if your wondering why I had left my old job is because it became too hard on my own mind and became exhausting mentally..I was dealing with challenging behaviors…aswell which put a strain on my overthinking, and anxiety. leading to depression..

But I’ve worked with learning disabilities in my training.. before anything else which is what I wanted to do first.. so really it isn’t anything new to me, it’s just new a routine..and a new environment..

But what has led me to negativity again is that I’m finding it difficult to fit in.. maybe I’m thinking to soon!!!

But negativity and overthinking has control of your mind..

Don’t let it fool you one bit.. because it wins everytime..

Not for me, this is the final straw, I’ll be fine.. I know I’m good at the job that I do.. I just need to believe in myself a lot more..and I will then feel comfortable..around others and people that I look after.. because my manager wouldn’t have faith in me if she didnโ€™t believe that I could do it..and I know that she has every trust in me..to do my job that I love and enjoy, and that means everything to me in my ๐Ÿ’“ as I have for these patients I look after ๐Ÿ™‚.

I believe every word, what a good person left for me on my older blog about overthinking.. and I thank you so much for that comment.. because I looked back.. and thought โ€œyes itโ€™s so trueโ€ spend eighty percent of your time focusing on the opportunities of tomorrow, instead of the problems of yesterday..!!! โœŒ๐Ÿผand โ™ฅ๏ธ

This as helped me a great deal.. so goodbye ๐Ÿ‘‹ negativity, hello positivity ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ˜˜ thatโ€™s what I believe in ๐Ÿ˜„..

Cheerio everyone…โœŒ๐Ÿผโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ

Low self esteem,Setting A Positive Life, Of Being Yourself, And Guiding Yourself In The Right Direction, With Mental Health…….

Hello my beautiful friends….. Hope you are all well!!

We can all expect the obvious reasons, that we all can not succeed…because of our mental health, and that’s the hardest thing to do, sometimes and it’s a huge struggle to cope with because of situations that can be extremely difficult to overcome.

Low self esteem….Issue’s!!! You are not alone….

We all have times when we lack confidence and don’t feel good about ourselves…

But when low self esteem becomes a long term problem, it can have a harmful effect on our mental health and our lives…..

What causes low self esteem…….

Low self esteem often begins in childhood, teachers, friends, siblings, and even media send us messages about ourselves, both positive, and negative.

For some reason, the message you aren’t good enough, is the one that stays with you.

Perhaps you found it difficult to live up to other people’s expectations of youor to your own expectations…

Stress, and difficult life events, such as serious illness.. or a bereavement, can have a negative effect on self esteem….

That’s what happened to me in my childhood, when I was going through depression…losing my dad and being bullied…

Personality can also play a part. Some people are just more prone to negative thinking, while others set impossibly high standards for themselves..

We are good enough!!!

How does low self esteem, affect us…..

If you have low self esteem or lack confidence, you may hide away from social situations, stop trying new things, and avoid things you find challenging…..

“In the short term, avoiding challenging and difficult situations can make you feel a lot safer…”

My social anxiety… was pretty difficult as I found them challenging , my self esteem was always in the the firing line, but getting myself to go out there and change my way of thinking was to push myself, as I sometimes tended to tell myself I’m a bit lazy…I was thinking it’s not going to come my way automatically….I needed to work hard. And I did, setting my goals and dreams.. of going to university. and definitely going to travel, and pass my driving licence without fail.. creativity to me is the key… as I tend to go on a college course… to do a creative writing programme for beginner’s..

Other ways to improve low self esteem..

Here are some simple techniques that may help you feel better about yourself…

Recognise what you’re good at.

We’re all good at something, whether it’s cooking, singing, doing puzzles or being a friend. We also tend to enjoy doing the things we’re good at, which can help boost your mood.

Build positive relationships.

If you find certain people tend to bring you down, try to spend less time with them, or tell them how you feel about their words or actions.

Seek out relationships with people who are posi

Be kind to yourself

Professor Williams advises: “Be compassionate to yourself. That means being gentle to yourself at times when you feel like being self-critical.

“Think what you’d say to a friend in a similar situation. We often give far better advice to others than we do to ourselves.”

Learn to be assertive

Being assertive is about respecting other people’s opinions and needs, and expecting the same from them.

Being assertive is about respecting other people’s opinions and needs, and expecting the same from them.

One trick is to look at other people who act assertively and copy what they do.

“It’s not about pretending you’re someone you’re not,” says Professor Williams. “It’s picking up hints and tips from people you admire and letting the real you come out.”

Start saying ‘no’.

People with low self-esteem often feel they have to say yes to other people, even when they don’t really want to.

The risk is that you become overburdened, resentful, angry and depressed.

“For the most part, saying no doesn’t upset relationships,” says Professor Williams. “It can be helpful to keep saying no in different ways until they get the message.”

Give yourself a challenge

We all feel nervous or afraid to do things at times. But people with healthy self-esteem don’t let these feelings stop them trying new things or taking on challenges.

Set yourself a goal, such as joining an exercise class or going to a social occasion. Achieving your goals will help to increase your self-esteem.

You can love and believe in yourself… by having strength and faith taking step by step…..

Take care everyone!!!

A Way To Look At Things In A Different Light…Try Loving And Believing In Yourself First…๐Ÿ’œ๐ŸŒท

This year as been the hardest for me.. I’ve always had a struggle with Isolation, depression, anxiety, a number of eating disorders… low self esteem, social anxiety, binge eating, as you have read in my previous blogs… and trying to communicate in helping others… I’ve had help to overcome these situations as I’ve spent recent months in a rehab centre …๐Ÿ’”

And now I’ve found the courage to stand on my own two feet without being afraid….a lot of my past had something to do with the way that I was living, esp… with isolation.

People do have a difficult time in their lives of living and struggling with mental Illness, bipolar, manic depression, anxiety, panic attacks etc,….

This could be the hardest situation that you are in… and I get that, I really do, but you must have the courage to look at your life and think, one step at a time… do a journal of thoughts and feelings, set out your goals, things that interest you…

The picture above… shows my plan of reaching my goal that I focused on, and having trust, hope, faith, and belief… many people have a struggle setting out these goals esp with what they are facing or what they are going through….

Take social media for instance, instagram, facebook, twitter, pinterest, and the affect it does have on mental health, but in another way we can look at it, we can work harder for what we want…maybe I’m making it sound as easy as that…. but you need to believe in yourself, and love yourself more no matter the situations.

I agree it can be upsetting when we see people being happy and enjoying themselves..taking vacations, having money in their pocket, and it gets you thinking why can’t I do that…but that isn’t always the case, they could be having a more of a worse day then others..

Believe In Yourself…..

Believe in yourself and you can achieve.

Things you never thought possible.

Believe in yourself and you can discover.

New talents hidden inside you.

Believe in yourself and you can reach.

New heights that you thought immeasurable.

Believe in yourself and you can elucidate.

The problem that defies every solution.

Believe in yourself and you can tackle.

The hardest of all situations.

Believe in yourself and you can make.

The complicated things seem simple.

Believe in yourself and you can enjoy.

The beauty of nature’s creation.

Believe in yourself and you can learn.

Skills of gaining knowledge from experience.

Believe in yourself and you can discern.

New depths in your life.

Believe in yourself and you can perform.

Way beyond your expectations.

Believe in your aim and work towards it, with elation, determination and dedication, believe in yourself and you’ll feel blessed.

As you are god’s special creation……..โœŒ

Make It Happen….
MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!

When I was going through my childhood I was always considered the slow girl with no knowledge, I couldn’t even write things down on paper… or read where I was always in a foundation class than a higher education class to others… and children were cruel, my exams was always low in marks..I wasn’t good with numbers I had to find a way to learn new skills, but it was a struggle that I kept on giving up saying that I can’t do this….no no no.

Who as Inspirations… of music that helped you along the way of growing up, and believing in yourself… the video above, helped me find strength to say one day I will make it happen… I will achieve what I want…I started to go to college school to help me read and write even though at the time I had no interest, but in the long run I was happy of continuing to learn my goals..and as for others saying I’m finding it difficult… and keep giving up, need to start over again without failing I know it’s extremely hard… but you can start over each day!!! and ignore others… these happy people you are talking about you can look back and say I’m strong no matter the consequences…

No matter how hard you have had it in your life, as I have over recent months with mental Illness, things you want don’t fall into your lap I learned that this year…. push yourself to the extreme…going on vacations, on the beach, and other things.

Try setting yourself free…. as like next year, my plan is to go to university.. to start my counselling level 2 or becoming a talking therapist…Anyone struggling, tell me your interests… and goals, we all have a goal…

I’ve had to push myself so hard that I know that I can do anything without fail.. because I’ve always said to myself I’m weak and unhappy but I needed to change my way of thinking..we all have dreams, and when I’d choose the career I wanted, as a mental health profession, even though I caused a lot of stress in the long run. I’m very grateful and privileged of the way things did turn out for me… even though I have been in very dark places… with anxiety and depression, I push myself to say…..

Believe in yourself… as I’ve struggled myself, of being happy finding peace, and love….

Love will come your way, when you believe and heal yourself…It’s not going to come over night, but you will look back and say I’ve come this far ahead..And now I can help others and guide them to a new destiny…Be honest and true to yourself, and I’m sorry for the very long term of writing..But to me this is Important for you, as we all have a purpose in life.. never give up.

Easier said than done…but even though your going through a bad day!!! of unhappiness or having mood swings on and off day to day that can’t be helped…keep positive.

Okay my pals!!!

I feel better now I’ve done this blog!!!

Stay positive, Love, peace and happiness….

Cheerio….

Spiritual Healing…..In Mental Health…Poems Of Healing And Life….

Hello my lovelies, hope you are keeping well…..

I haven’t written in a while… as I’ve been going forward with new opportunities.

But I haven’t forgotten my roots of helping others to move forward, as I see a light in all of you, in healing our mental health…as some of you may never feel properly cured,and as we all can have good days and bad days……always focus on what the next day will bring…and think I’m going to stay positive today, YOU GOT THIS!!!…

Spiritual Healing…..

Powerful Poem About Life Lessons…….

Faith and courage is what will get you through this life……

In life there are people that will hurt us and cause us pain,

But we must learn to forgive and forget and not hold grudges,

In life there are regrets we will have to live with,

But we must learn to leave the past behind and realise it is something we cannot change,

In life there are people we will loose forever and can’t have back, but learn to let go and move on…

In life there are going to be obstacles that will cause interference, but we must learn to overcome these challenges and grow stronger…

In life there are fears that will hold us back from what we want, but we must learn to fight them with the courage from within,

God holds our lives in his hands, he holds the key to our future, only he knows our fate.

He sees everything and knows everything. Everything in life really does happen for a reason: “God’s Reason”…..

Before healing myself, I was in a very dark place…where I became extremely lost… and I didn’t know which way I was turning!!!….

There’s a cold dark corner in the back of my room,

It speaks to me and says I’m coming for you,

As I lie on my bed, wild thoughts run through my head,

As I lie in fetal position, my eyes are closed hoping and wishing,

Maybe that one day my dreams will come true, that I don’t have to be here so down and blue,

The corner keeps on telling me about how I’m going to die, all I can do is lie there and cry,

As the corner gets closer and takes me, my soul turns to burn as so does my skin,

My bones shall lie there turning to dust, my bed surrounding nothing but rust.

I read that poem over and over thinking that, when I heal my soul I’ll look back and think…..thank the lord I’ve survived away from that dark place….we all have strength and power to fight our demons, and we have a right to be on this earth for love and healing, even though we might face a brick wall that BRICK WALL CAN BE BROKEN!!!!!! and we can then mend our broken pieces.

Fighting with your illness, can be an extremely huge struggle when you are trying your damn hardest to pull yourself back up on the straight and narrow…. Here is a poem to establish, the difficulties many of you face!!!

Life is hard to live sometimes when the light inside no longer shines, Everything around you becomes so dark, You grab a knife and leave a mark! It makes me feel alive again! replacing fear and doubts with pain!

You hope to fill the emptiness, You fight to end of loneliness, You start to drink your pain away, drowning your sorrow day to day.

You quickly want to end your life! You sit alone holding the knife,

Failure now consumes your heart, hate and love is tearing you apart!,

The fear and pain controlling your mind, the hate inside you leaves you blind…

The bit of love you feel, someone with bipolar disorder.. it’s real It’s why you are here It’s for your love to remain, although you may fear your completely insane…….

However spiritual healing is a path of transformation, a journey that connects the body, heart and mind to free the soul….

This addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual toxins. In this way, we eliminate toxins that undercut the soul, we then release motion that splits the person away from themselves. And doing both allows the person to become whole…..

When I looked at spiritual healing myself… and my physical health, and my ways of getting healthy again I started to write down my own poetry and emotional stories on healing and faith and of course years of painful situations in my youth through childhood… I wanted to help and guide others through the healing process, as a few months ago my breakdowns spiralled out of control of loneliness and despair and going through anxiety and depression… even though I work in the mental health Industry myself, in can become very draining… even though I’m very dedicated…..

I’m going to leave you with one last poem….. a poem of healing and courage..

Having someone to help you is great,

Especially when they’re always there,

A poem can be good mate,

Lift you up when you can’t bear,

It can help you through the pain,

Never to leave you standing alone,

Guiding and healing till you rise again..

I need a healing in my soul,

Lord, give me a voice for my healing,

One that will cry out in the distance,

One that will ring out in the streets,

I need a healing for my future,

Lord give me a voice for my healing

One that can speak potential into being

One that with faith can act on your will…

Well we can heal and believe in spiritual healing as I did to help me guide my brightest future’s ahead, and believe me it can work for you guys to….never never let anybody discourage you.. because they do that honestly….

Take Care my sweetie’s…..Lots Of Love and happiness and peace coming your way…..

Cheerio!!!!….

Losing My Father, Very Young…. And How I Coped With Depression In My Childhood…. And The Grieving Process That Led Me To My Mental Health….๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

Hello my happy bloggers…..

This is about my childhood…..growing up without one parent… That I lost at the tender age of 9 yrs old….

My story……๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท

When I was Young, my father meant everything too me, I was a dad’s first born… And of course then my brother, in which he was only 2 yrs old at the time of his death…

It was a very hard intense moment for me, as I was present at the time of his death, at the age of 42 yrs I was there in that horrible experience… I remember shouting him… at the time and It was really hard, even today I can still see his face ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ž thinking I wish I was that 2 yr old…

Me, dad, mom and my family, we had lovely get together’s and holidays that I miss…. Mostly at christmas time…..We used to go to a club on a saturday evenings and going to disco’s ๐Ÿ’ƒ… That’s where the love of music comes from. ๐ŸŽถ

I was very lucky I suppose as a child, christmas time was the best, I loved opening presents ๐ŸŽ when dad was there…. to see our faces glow with excitement…. And mum ๐Ÿ˜Š

But losing him was the hardest, for me… I became shocked in my childhood, that I don’t think I ever grieved properly, as I never spoke about his death, and seeing everything that reminded me of him was utterly turmoil…. ๐Ÿ˜ž

This was difficult on my mental health issues, I was in complete denial that he was gone…. My mum had met someone new and remarried two yrs after dads death…. Which had gotten me so angry.

I’m not going to lie, I made his life a living hell, I was extremely hard to cope with, and (I see it now) that I’ve changed because I’m older.. But what became more difficult for me was that mum became pregnant… And when she told me, I was livid… I used to tell extreme lies about him to seek attention from my mum….

Me and dad ๐Ÿฅฐ

I suffered depression, grief and loss…. It was so difficult for me to express my feelings as a child, no one ever asked how I was feeling….Everything reminded me of him, like for example I was a big fan of kylie minogue and jason donovan…and I still am. But kylie was my absolute idol growing up, my mum and dad brought me her videos and records that even today I could never ever part with them….. It would absolutely break my heart ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”.

Them are my fond memories of him, listening to them songs around the house, in his presence….even though it wasn’t his type of music…and also sharing happier times with him at the movies…. ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

My mental health raised when I was at school… As you all understand I had a tough time being bullied…but I used my dads death as a comfort… So people would stop picking on me…but even though it was a struggle I did manage to cope with that.

My anxiety and depression, became worse, due to being bullied, that I needed dads guidance, even though mom tried her best, but at the time I was just to difficult… I was extremely angry… I’ve never been a bad influence in my life… But i was just in complete denial as I said before….

But I became strong, and if I didn’t have guidance in my life, I wouldn’t be as strong than I ever thought I would be, ๐Ÿ‹.

And my mom’s partner I excepted, along with my sister, as I wouldn’t be without them now…

But dad will always be in my memory.. And always in my heart.. with music too…

grieving was the hardest thing, as a child but whoever as been through hard times losing a parent….please share if you found it difficult..

I love my family now… And dad is shining over meโญ because he’s guided my life…into a whole lot more even though there as been struggles….

Miss you dad…28 yrs today ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน..xx

Take care, love โค๏ธ peaceโœŒ and happiness…๐Ÿ˜

cheerio!!! Xx

and please my lovely pals…. Read my post on my other site eternal moments… As everything is my journey of my life sooo far, I would be much appreciated…Thank you… My lovelies โค๏ธ

My Journey Of Healing, And Why I Write My Blogs……And How It Helped Me Find Stability.

Hello my lovely bloggers…..

My inspiration of doing this post, is looking of how far I have become as a human being…I’m on the way of healing myself, and I’ve succeeded my journey…. I’ve always seen the good in others, of the posts that I read of which I become sensitive too, and as of which I’m raising funds for the awareness of mental health. I’m participating in a sponsored run…… so things are brightening up for me..I see the good in all of you 100%

Blogging as changed me and the way I live my life and as helped in so many ways of typing down my thoughts and feelings as my journal, but also finding my stability above all else…

I know happiness is hard to find.. as for over the past few weeks I’ve had to find myself with my anorexia nervosa but I’m mending every little piece of my soul that as now healing… and now I’ve found the confidence again to continue my journey with you guys….

I just love writing, and one day I will follow my dreams of going to university next year, to do my counselling level 2…And do my therapy training.

These are dreams that we can follow, what are your main goals in your life, please comment and share with me… everybody as a purpose in life, no matter what we face.

Happiness, and healing is beautiful, we can find that light at the end of every tunnel, as we do despite our mental health… never give up pals, just like I haven’t we have so many dreams ahead of us, keep putting yourself on the right track… and you will get there..

YOU’LL SEE……

And this is the reason why I blog, to try and help guide others hopefully in the right direction….as I’ve struggled myself and it’s definitely not easy because we all have a shining light inside our souls…of happiness.

Love, Peace, And Happiness everyone….

Take Care peep’s

How We Can Maintain An Outgoing Life,Without Judgement On Our Mental Health……๐ŸŒน

Hi, happy blogger’s how are you today!!!

Something as inspired me to do this post, as I’m very sensitive to certain situations….. People shouldn’t be judged or intimidated by there mental health, we are only human…

When being in a social crowd, and you have a fear of social anxiety, Isn’t a choice, I wish that people knew how badly this can be, they wish they could be like everybody else, and how hard it is to be affected by something that can bring them to their knee’s every single day…

I’ve suffered with social anxiety, due to my bullying in the past I was frightened to walk past crowds in the street where I lived at the time, even to my local shops,because their would be crowds of people, esp from school who had to say something completely mean for no reason… and that brought on my fear of social anxiety for many years that always made me feel uncomfortable around others.

When having certain experiences with mental health, such as bipolar, anxiety, social anxiety, isolated, loneliness, no one to trust or talk too…. some find it hard to cope with and try to reach out to hold a hand in need, that’s why writing about our thoughts and feelings we feel a sense of release of feeling better by expressing them……

Inspiration!!!

If you are having trouble making friends, here are a few tips and tricks that might help you bring awesome new people into your life…..

1, Love yourself.

It’s so much easier to get other people to love you if you take the time to love yourself. It’s not as simple as it sounds, but it can help you make friends. You’ll also find if you feel better about yourself, it can make things easier to bear [ though I’m not suggesting this a cure for mental health]. Try focusing on your physical health, making a list of small goals or just doing something you enjoy everyday…

2,  Join a support group.

Mental health support groups,

Can be a great place to make friends because you don’t have to worry about being judged for your mental health illness. Usually, everyone in the group is going through a similar experience and is trying to find ways to reach out and connect with others. Don’t feel like you have to stay in one support group just because it’s the first one you picked. Feel free to try a bunch until you find a group of people you mesh with.

3, Take a class.

You don’t have to go back to school for this trick, find a class that offers something you’re interested in like cooking, painting, sewing, etc. These classes can be a great way to find people who have similar interests while doing something you enjoy. Plus you can hone skills at the same time.

4, Stay connected.

The trickiest part of making friendships that stick is staying connected. If you meet someone youโ€™re interested in fostering a friendship with, get some contact details. Phone numbers, Twitter handles, Facebook details โ€” the type of contact info doesnโ€™t matter. The trick is to stay in touch so you can build the friendship up. People tend to think social media is isolating us because weโ€™re all constantly staring at our phones, but recent studies have found the opposite is true. Facebook users, for example, have been found to have closer and stronger relationships than those who donโ€™t use social media. Social media can also help you stay in touch with people who might live a bit further away.

5, Ask for help.

If youโ€™re seeing a therapist โ€” or considering visiting one โ€” mention to them youโ€™re having trouble making friends. Theyโ€™ll have a better understanding of your specific situation than any random โ€œhow-toโ€ site, and they might be able to offer advice or tricks that might help you more because theyโ€™re catered to you. Therapists are there to help you, not to judge your friend-making skills, so donโ€™t hesitate to ask for help if you have the option to do so.

6, Find someone who loves you for you.

Making and maintaining friendships might seem like an insurmountable hurdle when youโ€™re struggling to just get out of bed in the morning, but itโ€™s one of the most important things you can do to help you deal with your mental illness. Build up a good support network to help you through the hard times, and youโ€™ll have an amazing group to help you celebrate all the good times as well.

Try these strategies by taking a few steps at a time…. and I know it isn’t the easiest thing but believe in yourself, love yourself, never mind what others think or say…… we are all meant to be here on this earth… and above all deserves love…

Take Care Cheerio!!

Love, peace, and happiness above all…โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜
