The Monsters.

This right here is the best gift I can ever receive. There is not enough money in the world that could outweigh the feeling of helping someone and making someone happy. I want to continue that and share her blog with you guys. Go there and show her some love! We have been talking for the past few days and she is for sure one of the most down to earth people you will ever have a chance to meet/read.

The Pointless Life.

Monsters are real…

The scariest monsters that exist are the ones that lurk within our souls. They live inside all of us, and sometimes- they win. The strongest of people are the ones that have a command over their monsters.

I put this topic off a really long time and felt like there is no reason to blog about it. But the ”behind” story of this kept lingering around my brain and I had to get it out somehow. Because, all it gave me was many sleepless nights.

The truth is, I have seen this ”monster”. I have felt its presence. I have been touched by it. And eventually, it killed me. Beauty is a curse on the world. It keeps us from seeing who the real monsters are. The world is full of monsters with friendly faces.

Let’s talk about Depression.

Here is a testimony about depression from a fellow blogger. Read it. It might help you or somebody you know.

This is the last reblog about this, I do not want to bore you and be the cause of bad mood.

Let’s talk about mental health.

My first reblog but a very important one! Do not be afraid to share how you feel with those around you. Your mental health is the single most important thing in your life, do not ignore it.

Let’s talk about crying for no reason in the middle of the day. Let’s talk about going to bed at 8pm to try and sleep through the empty feelings.

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week – the one week every year that we are encouraged to talk about these things. But 7 days just isn’t enough, not by a long shot.
