M’s Musings on Mental Health

I hope you remember to show more empathy,

I hope you try to listen without prejudice,

I hope you’re there when your friends tell you they want to end it all.

I hope you’re not afraid to open up about your struggles,

About the demons you’ve faced, and the ones you’ve destroyed.

I hope you are a safe space for others,

I hope love flows out of you, unforced.

I hope you are someone’s sunshine,

I hope you’re a light that beckons to others,

A light that reminds them that the darkness isn’t forever.

I hope you heal,

I hope you laugh again,

And I hope you find the reason to enjoy life again.

As we recognize World Mental Health Day, I hope you recognize that you matter more than words can say.

Love,

M.

How do you comfort a friend going through a rough patch?

Many of us have either been depressed/anxious/suicidal or we’ve known people who are. So how do we talk to them when they’re going through these rough times? How do we help them out??

November Writing Challenge- Prompt 5

Hiya!

Welcome to Day 5 of the writing challenge.

No Single Truth

Today’s topic is a little philosophical. Matter of fact, it cuts through theology, philosophy and psychology (Yup! Had to do a little reading on that). It’s on the concept of ‘no single truth’. Some argue that having a single truth, means the rest are false. But then again how can they be false if those who follow it claim it’s true? Well, I’m not gonna bore you with all that.

Here’s what I think:

We are all trying to seek the truth and meaning of our existence. I hope your truth is absolute, and I hope it charts your way and I hope it gives you life. -M.

We all need a navigation system to get through life. Without it, we’d be lost. That’s why Jesus assures us that He’s the way, truth and life. This is the truth we believe, the path we follow to the father and inevitably the abundant life we’re called to have. Isn’t that just beautiful?! ❤️

Here’s one truth you must know to be true—God loves you just the way you are. And He loves to have a relationship with anyone who would accept Him. ❤️

Love,

M.❤️

Day 29: Good Company

She loved the night.

She loved the vulnerability that was found under the moonlight;

The silver tears and muffled cries on squeezed pillows.

She loved the night.

She loved how the face was bare of every makeup and pretense,

How the body was unclothed from luxury and status,

She loved the night.

Because that’s how she could see the raw and uncut version of you.

You were truly good company.

So she said, “One night, let’s just refill our coffee mugs and talk till the sun comes out.”

DTM: Of Froyos and Sunshine

of froyosI remember our first date. We were having coffee. I sat across from him, miles away. He didn’t even know me, but to me, he was an open book ready to be feasted upon by my ever curious eyes. I searched through depths of his mind- reading post after post. He was intriguing, I thought to myself. He became the muse and today, I’m borrowing his concept to bring DTM.
