    Are You Sick of Shame?

    Are You Sick of Shame?

    The feeling of shame is one of the most overpowering feelings you can ever experience. The definition of the emotion implies that you had to have done something, therefore, you feel humiliated or embarrassed. I'm sure we've all been there after doing something out of character, and you end up feeling shameful.

    Meeting Your Emotional Needs

    Meeting Your Emotional Needs

    I am not exactly sure how to start this article, but I think that it is important to discuss the importance of meeting one's emotional needs. In fact, for everyday life, it is vital, because if your own personal needs are not met, you start to withdraw from your interpersonal relationships, and become what some call a hermit. While every once and a while it is okay to hide in your shell, you need to make sure that this does not take over your entire life, because it is unhealthy to stay away from people for too long.

    5 Things You Should Know Before Talking About Your Mental Illness:

    While I’ve suffered from mental illness most of my life, I haven’t always understood how important it is to really be heard by the people in my life. The idea of talking about what I go through with others never seemed to be an option. Regardless, suffering alone is quite, well, lonely. Since opening up about my issues with chronic mental illness, I’ve received a bounty of love and support and also a heaping load of trash.

    Life with Abusive Parents

    Life with Abusive Parents

    Living with abusive families can really mess up a person. With a mom who is never there because of a man or work and a dad who bailed right after you were born, living with grandma and mom should be fun, right? Since mom is always at work or with a man, but no, it sometimes is not fun. At times it’s fine but at other times it is terrible. Grandmas are supposed to be loving and fun, but when you have an abusive grandmother, life can be hell. When she is always saying stuff like you can’t do anything right or you’re a hippo, life just isn’t worth living. It can be very hard to push through and continue living.

    Honesty

    Honesty

    Hello, lovely people of the world. I wanted to kind of backtrack a little bit and revisit the topic of communication skills. Near the end of that post, I mentioned that, when seeking advice for a certain situation, it’s best if we are completely honest with ourselves, and whoever it may be helping us.
