Healing with B
Hey there! I’m a psychology, consciousness and healing enthusiast. I share my thoughts on here for anyone who wants to take a look. I also write fiction for fun.
How Allowing Leads to a Happy Life
As with everything, I can only write this from my current perspective. I believe that we can benefit from considering the perspectives of others but I want to encourage the awareness that someone else’s word is never above our own, and someone else’s beliefs are never more valid than our own. I encourage you to pay attention to what “rings the bell of truth” for you in everything that you read or hear.
I’ve been on twenty-six first dates. Seven second dates and zero third dates. I don’t know why I count but I do. Tonight I sit at a bar where the lights are a little too bright and the music’s a little too weird and wait for a stranger.
How Magic Mushrooms Have Helped my Mental Health Issues
For a long time, I’ve struggled with depression, anxiety and low self esteem. For years I received various diagnoses from psychiatrists and was put on medications such as lamotrogine, seroquel, lithium, and many more. Sometimes the medications would help with my symptoms for a little while, but eventually the side-effects would become unbearable. At that point I would switch to a different medication or come off of medication entirely, only to experience my usual symptoms again.
Hating the Haters
The hate in the world has been especially on display this past year. It’s driven a lot of people to try to find ways to remedy it. I’ve been noticing the ways in which people are responding to that hate, whether on social media, through angry protests or in conversation. I’ve also been noticing how those responses aren’t accomplishing what they’re intended to accomplish. The intention to heal the hate is there. It’s a beautiful intention, but the methods that are being used are only fuelling the issue.
We are all Victims
Recently I’ve been seeing post after post shaming the “victim mentality.” If you aren’t familiar with this mentality it’s the tendency to see oneself as a victim in any given situation. The post that really struck a chord with me today and inspired me to write about my own experience on the topic was a quote by Mathew McConaughey. The quote read: “Do not fall into the trap. The entitlement trap of feeling like you’re a victim, you aren’t one.” This quote reflects a widespread attitude of “stop feeling sorry for yourself” and “put some dirt on it and move on”. This is an attitude that I consider to be very outdated and more harmful than many people realize.
