“I Live Here, Too” : How to Survive a Toxic Relationship

Toxic, too much – Living Together

It’s no secret, and truth is out there. That living in an abusive relationship can be harmful to your physical and mental health, as well as your self-esteem, but it’s not always so easy to figure out how to get out of one. It takes time for days, months, and even years to leave a toxic relationship. Sadly, some never leave the relationship, and the abuser takes the life of the victim.

Recognize the signs of a toxic relationship
Unfortunately, we don’t always know when we’re in a toxic relationship. There are signs that can help you identify the toxicity and get out of it before it hurts your life any more than it already has.
-The person always criticizes you and never agrees with what you say or do. -They make you feel like everything is your fault. -You’re always walking on eggshells around them and they don’t seem to care how they make you feel. -No matter what you do for them, it’s never good enough. You just end up feeling frustrated and powerless.
-Nothing is ever their fault; it’s always yours.
-It feels like no matter what happens, this person will have an excuse for why things went wrong. They’ll find ways to blame you for anything and everything that goes wrong in their lives too. -Nothing is ever their fault; it’s always yours.
-Be honest with yourself about whether these behaviors happen only sometimes, frequently or all the time. If these behaviors happen all the time, then there’s a high chance your partner is not being respectful of you.

Set boundaries with your partner
In order to survive in a toxic relationship, you have to set boundaries with your partner. For example, don’t answer the phone when they call or text you. If they come over, tell them it’s not safe for you right now and that you’ll talk later. The next time they come over, say no and ask them to leave your house. You can also try changing your cell number if necessary. When they make contact again, do not speak to them. Write down everything they do and document it so you will know what repeated behaviors to look out for in the future. Seek help from friends and family who support you. Find an outlet (such as writing) to release any pent-up emotions from dealing with this situation. Keep yourself busy to avoid having too much idle time on your hands. Talk to people close to you about how they feel about what is happening because it helps and gives them peace of mind knowing they are there for you.

Create a support system
The only way you can survive an abusive relationship is by building up your support system. You need family, friends and even strangers that will be there for you no matter what. This will help you feel less isolated and like you’re not the only one going through this. If they know how bad it’s gotten, they might also be able to offer ideas on how to deal with it or ways you can get out. If these people don’t want to take on the burden of being involved in your life all the time, find some who do! Just because he doesn’t want to fix his problems doesn’t mean you have to stay at home crying and waiting for him. Spend time with friends, join groups, go online- anything that gets you out of the house.

Seek professional help
If you are in an abusive or toxic relationship, it is time to get help. You deserve happiness and shouldn’t have to stay in a relationship with that kind of environment. We encourage you reach out for the help you need. There is always someone there for you if you need them; whether it be family, friends, or professionals who can help with your situation. Remember, life isn’t meant to be miserable. Make sure that if you decide to leave a relationship like this, do so safely and don’t take anything from the other person that may jeopardize your safety – including social media passwords. The first few days after leaving will feel like the end of the world, but know that they will pass and things will start to seem better. Find new hobbies that make you happy, as well as meet new people who will support your decisions (even if they’re not perfect).
You deserve happiness and don’t have to stay in a relationship where you’re constantly unhappy because this is how it’s supposed to be. Life isn’t meant to be miserable! Know that you deserve happiness and shouldn’t be staying in a relationship where you’re constantly unhappy because this is how it’s supposed to be. one day soon you’ll realize all of this has been worth it.

Know when to walk away
There are many reasons why you may need to end your relationship. Are you being mistreated? Has your significant other been unfaithful? Does he/she refuse to do anything with you? The list goes on and on. It can be hard to make the decision, but know that there is life after the breakup. The first step is acknowledging the problems in your relationship, then deciding if it’s worth trying for change or if it’s time for him/her to go. To reach this conclusion, ask yourself these questions:
-Does your partner get jealous easily and try to control what you wear, who you talk to, etc.?
, stay in the relationship. If they’re not respecting your boundaries, they don’t deserve you. If they’re not respecting your boundaries, they don’t deserve you. If their not respecting your boundaries,they don’t deserve you. I live here too. When love goes bad, sourness fills the room daily. Pain of cheating, abuse, and demands. But I live here too, it is my favorite word. No love, just anger, and tears. Not married or married, or together for too long. It’s hard but it passes in time. You are a priority, you matter most. Sometimes overtime, we wake up and know it’s time to go. May tomorrow be your day, so happiness fills your soul once again. You deserve love, peace, and happiness. 💕

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

Structure: Fail, Fail, Fail

Structure,- Fail, Mental Health- Fail

Our Future and Mental Health

It’s no secret that our world is changing. The way we live, the way we work, and the way we interact with each other is all evolving at a rapid pace. And while there are many incredible things about this moment in time, there is also a lot of uncertainty. One of the things that we can be certain about, however, is the importance of mental health. The future can be a scary place. We don’t know what’s going to happen or how we’re going to handle it. But one thing we can do is take care of our mental health. It’s more important than ever to make sure we’re taking care of our minds. Our mind is the foundation to “what’s next” in our future. We must make it a priority to stay on top of our mental health. In this post, I will explore why mental health is more important than ever and what we can do to promote it.

The world is always changing and with that comes new challenges. We don’t know what the future holds, but we can be prepared by taking care of our mental health. It’s more important than ever to take care of our minds and be proactive about our well-being. Perception around us and the challenges of what’s ahead of us.

 Mental health is important at all stages of life, but it’s especially important as we navigate the ups and downs of life. It’s more important than ever to take care of our minds and be proactive about our well-being. We don’t know what the future holds, but we can be prepared by taking care of our mental health. Mental health is something we all have to deal with.

Mental health is vital for our overall well-being. How we make choices, how we view those around us, how our behavior and action play into our relationships. The overall obstacle is how we overcome those challenges. Right now, right now my friends, there is no Structure to face challenges. We have eliminated all the positive perspectives on mental health in the past. Right now, we are struggling with our own demons because of judgement, criticism, and embarrassment. Our ancestors have taught us that it’s okay to not be okay, – Life goes on. Being productive on a negative level is creating a bigger problem. A sense of being forced to move forward when we are crippled by mental illness or mental health problems. Our mind is pushing us, when actually there is – No Structure to help us overcome those challenges.

Deeper into Mental Health The stigma of “crazy”, “psycho”, or “nut case” has scared us of that label. What have we done? I will tell you we have failed in Mental Health. Knowing our mind is everything, we gapped the “crazy stage” and landed straight into “psycho” status. An inability to even establish a consistent mental health pattern of Hope. Criticism has over powered the whole to selfish assholes. When we should help our neighbors, friends, and family. But once again- the generation has lost the structure. Work ethic has no value, if you show up your going above and beyond. It’s okay to question that last sentence. My friends, COVID-19 in 2020 lock down “Rocked our World”. Yes, “Rocked our World”. No Structure has left us confused, scared, and bitter. It’s not your fault, it’s the world we created.. Everyone here is responsible for the creation of mental health failure. The ability to correct right from wrong has passed boundaries and unacceptable limits, that are now okay. Where are morals and values?

No Better than Your Neighbor Keeping up with Roger, your neighbor is ineffective for 2022. The house looks great from the outside. New landscaping, new cars, nice patio furniture, and everything modern. Roger and his family are consistently smiling in public. My friends, what’s on the inside – contents to mental health, just like everyone else. Just because the display is awesome or glamorous, doesn’t exclude anyone from mental health issues. We all have a point of understanding ourselves. How we handle challenges and how we overcome them. No one is better than anyone else, but our mental health provides us knowledge and understanding to get through life. Thinking inside the box to move forward can be a struggle. Thinking outside the box gives more resources to educate our minds to higher quality mental health. So have you been stuck thinking in the box lately? Maybe try to expand the resources to help promote better quality of life. Better quality of thinking outside the box is rewarding in every aspect to mental health challenges.

Without realizing, when you open your ability to educate your mind- mental health improves to promote a healthier and happier – You. Make your mental health priority, Structure, Win, Win, Win✔️

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter-Della 💞🦋

“Please Don’t Yell, I’m Right Here”. – How Yelling impacts your Mental Health

"STOP" Yelling - it's harmful to both parties involved

We all know that one person or maybe your own self, who adds “yelling” to their daily routine. Is yelling really, necessary? In this blog post, we learn the science of yelling, and understand effects on one’s mental health. Yelling may seem like a harmless thing to do, but there are actually many different reasons behind why people tend to do it, as well as many unexpected effects that yelling can have on our lives and relationships. If you yell regularly, this may be something that you have done without realizing the negative impact it has had on you and those around you, so read on to find out more about the reasons why people tend to yell and how yelling effects those around them in their daily life and relationships.

* The Science of Why We Yell
Yelling has serious consequences for both the person doing the yelling and the person being yelled at. It can lead to mental health problems including anxiety, depression, and PTSD. Yelling is a sign of verbal abuse that should not be taken lightly. With these consequences in mind, it’s important to consider whether or not yelling is worth it. We might feel better momentarily but after time, those who are subjected to our anger will find themselves angry with us. We must remember that people who yell are often their own worst enemy because they end up hurting themselves more than they hurt others. When we stop caring about how we make others feel, what happens next? For many people, their mental health may start to decline. They may experience frequent headaches, poor sleeping patterns, and even an increased risk of suicide. If you want to live your best life while helping others do the same, then please don’t yell!

* How Yelling Affects the Brain
Yelling at someone can cause a range of negative emotions for both the person who’s yelling and the person who is being yelled at. It may be satisfying to yell, but it won’t make you feel good afterward. Plus, repeated yelling can have some serious effects on your brain. For example, one study found that people who were yelled at showed more activity in the part of the brain responsible for fear and panic than those who weren’t. So if you’re constantly yelling at your kids, they’re going to live in constant fear and anxiety! In addition, when we are yelled at, we show increased activity in our amygdala (the fight-or-flight response), which causes stress responses like an increased heart rate or high blood pressure. Yelling also increases inflammation levels. All this means that not only does anger hurt the people around us when we yell, but it also hurts us! We need to figure out ways to communicate with each other without using aggression. when we yell, it affects how well our voice will work afterwards. Yelling at high volumes causes tiny ruptures in the vocal chords that may not be noticeable right away but they can lead to soreness or even shortness of breath later on. In addition, yelling lowers the levels of oxygen in your blood which could lead to other health complications like decreased immunity. Remember: I’m right here, please don’t yell!

  • * Yelling doesn’t work Yelling only escalates the situation and frustrates both people involved. If yelling does happen, it’s important to apologize for being out of control – no matter how difficult it is. The next time you feel yourself getting too heated, pause for just a moment. Take a couple deep breathes and relax your mood and tone of voice. Think about the situation and is it worth the effort to yell?

Yelling seems to be a momentarily relief for some. But yelling has long term health effects, that are often ignored. Not only do you hurt the one who is being yelled at, you’re hurting yourself as well. So before you get heated, take a couple deep breathes. Change your tone of voice, walk away, and calm down. So next time you start to raise your voice, breathe in and stop. Is yelling worth hurting another person? Think about it, yelling impacts lives today, tomorrow, and permanently. Are you okay with impacting your children, family, or friends because yelling is part of your routine? “Please Don’t Yell, I am right here”.

Until our beautiful minds meet again, be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

The Psychology of Addiction: How We Develop Addictive Behaviors

Addictive Behavior

Every time we get drunk or high, eat junk food, binge on TV shows, gamble compulsively, watch porn, exercise to the point of injury, or commit any other kind of self-destructive behavior, we’re engaging in addictive behavior. And like everything else in life that we engage in too much of (sex, eating candy bars) there are negative consequences.

* Adolescent Behavior – Identifying Addictive
The psychology of addiction is not about the how, why, when, what, and where behavior. The behavior that triggers the response to more.
What happens to promote addiction is the root. (creations of) That come alive within our minds during adolescent years and developmental growth are normal. Experimenting with drugs and alcohol, trying different things sexually, smoking cigarettes – all these things can cause a person to become addicted. It is hard for us as humans to have control over anything in life but this one thing which has power over us is most often the result of people’s pain or disappointments in life. Addictions can be a way of coping with negative emotions. When you feel really angry, scared, frustrated, lonely or sad it’s easy to cope by using your addiction as an escape mechanism and temporarily forgetting about those bad feelings. With long-term use an addict will feel like they need the drug just to survive because it alters their brain chemistry so that feeling good becomes synonymous with using the drug.

*Understanding Addiction Behavior – What Goes on Inside?
There are two systems in the brain that regulate how we behave and respond to substances. One is the reward system, which is fueled by neurotransmitters like dopamine. The other is the inhibitory system, which inhibits our impulses and desires for substances. When a person’s brain has been altered by chronic substance use, their balance between these two systems changes. The reward system becomes more active and the inhibitory system becomes less effective at regulating behavior. As this continues, the addict needs more and more of the substance to produce an effect—even if they start with small amounts. It becomes harder to stop using, even when they want to or know they should stop.

* Why Does Addiction Occur?
While there is no one single cause for addiction, some risk factors may include genetics or a history of trauma. Genetics plays an important role in the development of addiction, because it can influence our brain’s reward system.
For example, people with a family history of alcohol use disorder are more likely to develop this disorder themselves, and people who have experienced trauma as children are more likely to struggle with drug use disorders.
Other risk factors that may lead to addiction include environmental influences such as peer pressure and availability. In other words, living in a community where substance abuse is prevalent can increase your chances of developing an addiction. These environments affect how we think about drugs and make them seem appealing.

* When Do Addictions Occur?
Addictions typically start during adolescence, which is when the brain has a lot of development going on. Experiments with drugs and alcohol can be seen as normal at this point in life, but it is important to remember that addiction can take hold before the adolescent is even aware. In fact, 90% of cases are reported to start by age 18. With mental illnesses like depression or bipolar disorder being common among those who struggle with addiction, treatment for these conditions may help to lessen or stop the use of substances. Lastly, there have been recent studies showing that social media apps like Instagram and Snapchat can serve as triggers for those struggling with addiction due to their constant need for instant gratification. There are other factors such as biology and genetics, stressors such as trauma or abuse, and more that play into the psychology of addiction.

* What Triggers It?
In a study by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, they found that nicotine is an addicting drug because it stimulates the release of dopamine in reward areas of the brain. Studies also show that people with mental illnesses, such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, may abuse drugs and alcohol to help relieve symptoms. In other cases, people might start using drugs or alcohol because friends or family members use them. Other possible triggers for addiction include depression, anxiety, physical pain or discomfort, boredom, and stress. People who experience these conditions are more likely to turn to drugs or alcohol for relief. Some people find that when they drink alcohol, their problems seem less important than before; some report being able to forget about past mistakes while others say they feel more social while drinking; some report feeling more confident and outgoing when under the influence of substances. For others, substances are used to self-medicate serious conditions like chronic pain.

* Where Do Addictions Come From?
Addictions are the result of a complex interaction between genetic vulnerability and environmental factors. It is important to note that there is no single gene for addiction, but it does seem to be more prevalent in families with a history of addiction. In addition to genetics, childhood trauma, stress and neglect have been shown to have an effect on the development of an addiction. Stressful situations release cortisol and other hormones into the body which can lead to addiction if not dealt with properly. However, any person can become addicted regardless of their environment if they use substances regularly.

* Expanding Consciousness – Solutions
What starts out as a small, seemingly harmless habit can quickly spiral into full-blown addiction. Many factors contribute to the development of addiction, and one crucial factor is the individual’s sense of self. When people feel disconnected from their true selves, they may seek temporary relief from this disconnection through substance abuse. When people are able to connect with their core selves and feel more aligned with who they truly are, they are much less likely to develop an addiction. Once a person does start using substances in an unhealthy way, it becomes harder for them to stop on their own without professional help. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) reports that 90 percent of those addicted to alcohol or other drugs need help getting sober but only 10 percent actually receive treatment. Fortunately there are many avenues for support if you or someone you know needs help managing or overcoming addiction.

The truth of addictive Behavior, easy to start, is hard to quit. One may struggle for sobriety daily, changing routine and finding the root cause is the solution. Facing the issue will help find peace to self contentment. Addiction is real and it’s one day at a time. Recovery isn’t easy, but starting is the first try.

Until our beautiful minds meet again be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

🚿 Starting Your Day With A Smile: Why Your Shower Routine Matters 🚿

Shower Routine Matters

Your morning shower routine can set the tone for your entire day. You may not think your shower has much to do with how you feel as you go about your daily business, but it does. Your morning shower should be one of the first things you do when you wake up in the morning, and it should be relaxing, invigorating and even fun so that you can get on with your day with a positive outlook and without becoming stressed out or burned out by the end of the day.

✔️ How to get up early
The morning routine consists of a few key components. Start by getting up at the same time every day, even on weekends and vacations. Once you’re up, drink a glass of water and do some light stretching or go for a short walk to help you wake up. After that it’s time to get ready for the day ahead. Wash your face with cold water to tighten your pores and give your skin a refreshing jolt, then apply moisturizer or eye cream. Now it’s time for breakfast! Make sure to include protein in your meal. Protein will keep you full until lunchtime and promote weight loss in the process. Throw in an avocado toast or Greek yogurt if you need more sustenance before heading out the door. If you don’t have time for breakfast, pack a healthy lunch before heading out into the world – this will keep hunger pangs at bay throughout the day! Make sure to stop by a coffee shop too – caffeine boosts mental energy, mood and alertness when consumed early in the day. Plus, we all know what happens when you try to function without coffee. Skip drinking caffeinated beverages late in the day because it may interfere with sleep quality later on. Stay hydrated all day long – set reminders for yourself so you never forget to drink enough water or other liquids like fruit juice or coconut water.
As soon as I’m done drying my hair, I like to make sure my teeth are clean and fresh before going back downstairs and starting my workday.

✔️ What to do before you start your day 🧼
Before you jump into your day, spend a few minutes on yourself. Take a shower, brush your teeth and comb your hair, then put on your favorite outfit or some nice cologne. Try to do this as early as possible in the morning to avoid rushing around later when you’re trying to get out the door for work. This way you’ll start off with a smile and feel better about yourself all day long. Studies have shown that people who use deodorant regularly tend to be happier and more confident than those who don’t. So make sure you use it! It will also help you feel more awake and less stressed throughout the day. When I’m feeling sluggish or worn down, I try to take a quick break for 10-20 minutes where I just sit back, relax, and focus on my breathing until I feel reenergized again. We can’t always control what happens in our lives but we can always control how we react to these things which is why starting your day with a positive attitude is so important!

✔️ How to set yourself up for success
One of the best ways to start your day off on a positive note is by starting with a shower. The scent of soap, the hot water, and the fact that you’re getting clean can all have powerful effects on your mood. Plus, it’s an easy and quick way to take care of yourself without having to do anything too strenuous. Once you’re done with your morning shower, you’ll have time for coffee or breakfast before heading out for the day. If you need some more reading material, use these tips as your guide. 1) Take some deep breaths while you focus on breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth 2) Focus on one specific thing that makes you happy 3) Count down from ten to one 4) Think about what makes you feel calm 5) Be sure to keep something fun planned for later in the evening 6) Write down five things you’re grateful for 7) Meditate

✔️ Ending your day with a smile
In the morning, starting your day with a smile is important and will help put you in a good mood for the rest of your day. In the shower, try to avoid focusing on negative thoughts or any problems that may be weighing you down. You can’t change what has happened and dwelling on it won’t help anything. Spend your time in the shower letting go of any negativity and think about all of the things that make you happy. Think about how nice it feels when you get out of the shower and how fresh and clean your skin feels. Think about waking up tomorrow morning when you’ll feel refreshed and ready to start your day off right! Focus on these positive thoughts while you’re washing yourself clean.

✔️ How an evening shower feels better than an evening nap 🚿 A nap might seem energizing when your tired. Did you know a shower is more effective? Interesting that a shower boosts mood and refreshes energy. The positive effects are remarkable just by being refreshed by a shower. The sense of a power nap, replaced by a shower. Simply effective that enhances an ability to gain quality energy, once again. Next time you’re feeling sluggish and need a boost, try taking a shower. It’s proven to promote both physical and mental health, just by showering.

A start of the day with a shower is the next step to living a clean, happy, and healthy life. When one may not believe the effects of showering. Think about this for a moment:. We have all been sick with a cold or flu. The common thing most of us do is medicate and sleep. Laying in the germs that got left behind in our bed. Sleep we believe is the cure, right? Take a shower a couple times a day while you’re sick and see how much better you feel. To reduce recovery time and increase energy levels, turn on that shower and refresh the immune system. Give it a try, Start Your Day With A Smile: Your Shower Routine Does Matters 🚿🧼

The mind-body connection: How everything we do affects our mental health

The Lizard: mind your head by Chris Downer is licensed under CC-BY-SA 2.0

It can be hard to think about our mental and emotional health in the same way we do our physical health, but it’s important to realize that everything you do affects your mental state. This can be as simple as eating unhealthy food or not getting enough sleep, but it also encompasses more serious matters like experiencing trauma or abuse, struggling with addiction, and dealing with depression and anxiety. The mind-body connection is such that if you put good things into your body and mind, you will feel better overall; conversely, if you take care of your mental and emotional health, you will see physical health benefits as well.

  • * Sleep
    A lack of sleep can also make us more susceptible to illness and injury. Sleep deprivation has been linked to weight gain, heart disease, diabetes and memory loss. It also reduces immunity which may cause colds or the flu.
    There are many things that could be keeping you up at night such as work stress, stress or financial worries. If this is happening often it’s important to see a doctor because it could lead to depression or anxiety. In addition, exercise is a great way to combat sleep deprivation! You should try going for a walk around your neighborhood in the evening hours before bedtime. When you wake up in the morning, get started with breakfast and then go outside to get some sunlight. When you’re tired during the day drink lots of water instead of coffee or soda (they contain caffeine). Lastly, stop looking at screens 30 minutes before bed time.
  • * Exercise
    Exercising daily is a must for good physical and mental health. It releases endorphins, which are hormones that make you feel good. Exercising can also help with anxiety, depression and other mood disorders. Studies have shown people who exercised were less likely to be diagnosed with clinical depression. Even if you can’t get out to exercise every day, try to fit it in at least three times per week for best results. Find what works for you – whether its walking, running or cycling – and find the time to do it. Spending just 30 minutes a day on an activity that makes your body and mind feel better will lead to benefits far beyond what you may imagine.
  • * Being Present
    To stay mentally and emotionally healthy, you need to take care of yourself. Sometimes this means taking time for yourself and doing things that make you happy. Whether it’s going for a walk or spending time with friends, the goal is to be present in the moment. One way to do this is through mindfulness—paying attention to what’s happening in your body and your thoughts without judging them. Mindfulness can also help us recognize when we’re feeling stress or anxiety so that we can get support before things get worse.
    We all experience emotions from time to time, but if these feelings last more than two weeks and start interfering with your daily life, then it may be helpful to seek professional help from a therapist who has training on dealing with depression and anxiety disorders. Depression and anxiety are both illnesses that can impact every area of our lives if left untreated. It’s important to find someone to talk to about how you’re feeling, even if that person is a friend or family member. Many people find that talking about their feelings helps them feel less alone and better understood by others who might not understand what they’re going through.
  • * Managing Stress
    Stress can lead to many other health problems and is something that should be considered when starting a new business. Identifying stressors, understanding the effects of stress on the body and taking steps to reduce stress are all ways to keep your mental and physical health in check. It’s important to understand the warning signs of high stress levels, as it may affect you mentally or physically in many different ways.
    It’s also important to understand what exactly causes you stress and what you can do to prevent it from happening again. People experience different types of stresses every day and they need to know what they are so they know how best to combat them before they happen again. One of the most common forms of stress is workplace anxiety. In order to alleviate this type of stress, one must find a way to identify their triggers for this anxiety and learn coping skills for managing it accordingly. There are plenty of tips online about combating workplace anxiety, such as listening to music while working or doing yoga during breaks.
  • As we push through everyday life, we fail to acknowledge the impact on our mental health. Making time for sleep, exercise, be present, and manage stress are priority. Being mentally healthy will improve physical health. Have you implemented the time for your mental health, lately?

😵‍💫Troubled Minds During Developmental Growth😵‍💫

Adolescent Mental Health
Learning while distracted
Learning while Distracted
Adolescent Mental Health

Adolescents Mental Health

The gift of children is a blessing in many ways. One would believe that children are happy, loving, and learning, stress- free. Far from true, sadly children struggle mentally during childhood developmental growth. Let’s take a look into the mind of our children.

Many factors play a role in developing adolescent mental health. These include healthy sleep patterns, physical activity, and coping skills. Adolescents also need to have a safe environment where they can explore their emotions. Adolescents should also develop healthy coping mechanisms and social skills to deal with challenges in their lives. Adolescence is a critical developmental period. It is a time for emotional and social adjustment. Developing healthy sleep and exercise habits, coping skills and social relationships, and protective environments are important for mental health. In addition, exposure to violence and other traumatic events can negatively impact adolescent mental health.

Depression

When a teenager is experiencing symptoms of depression, it’s critical that they get the help they need. The first step is to get them to talk to their primary care provider about the problem. These visits are often the first contact with a mental health professional, and they can help identify issues before they become serious and refer them to appropriate treatment. While many people experience some level of depression during their adolescence, symptoms of depression in adolescents are often more complex than those experienced in adults. They can include somatic symptoms, disruptive behavior, and personality disorders.

Depression in adolescents can be caused by past trauma or recent stressful events. For instance, the loss of a loved one can trigger a depressed mood. Likewise, a teen who feels isolated and unsupported may experience depressive symptoms. Moreover, social media usage and internet use can exacerbate the feeling of being left out, which can lead to depression.

Anorexia nervosa

The treatment of anorexia nervosa focuses on helping patients regain normal weight and eating habits. It often involves a medical evaluation, but it is also important to provide a comprehensive nutritional plan. A nutritional plan should address the anxiety related to eating, promote the consumption of a variety of foods, and help patients to eat regularly. In addition, it is important to note that the treatment of anorexia nervosa often takes longer than simply restoring weight.

Anorexia nervosa is a serious condition that can impact individuals of any age and gender. It affects both girls and boys, and it is common among teenagers and older adults. It affects approximately one percent to two percent of the global population. The disorder affects approximately one in every 1,000 adolescents.

Anorexia nervosa is the most common of the eating disorders. It is characterized by repeated episodes of binge eating or purging to purge the body of food. It is estimated that one in every 100 females suffers from anorexia nervosa. This condition can have devastating effects on an individual’s life. Anorexia nervosa is a psychiatric disorder and can cause physical and psychological problems.

Bulimia nervosa

Bulimia nervosa is an eating disorder that can affect a person’s mental health, physically and emotionally. Research has shown that bulimia often develops when a person experiences trauma. The symptoms of bulimia often include purging and binge eating. These behaviors are used to reduce the anxiety and hyperarousal associated with the traumatic experiences. However, they can also perpetuate a cycle of the traumatic experiences. As a result, individuals with eating disorders are more likely to experience PTSD than those without this disorder. In fact, two major national representative studies have found high rates of PTSD in those with bulimia nervosa.

Treatment for bulimia nervosa consists of a treatment program that combines individual and family therapy with nutritional rehabilitation. This treatment typically involves a series of outpatient appointments and may involve several visits per week. In addition, patients may also need to attend weekly sessions of relapse prevention. As with other eating disorders, the approach to treatment is tailored to the needs of the patient.

Anxiety disorders

Anxiety disorders in adolescents are highly prevalent and can be very harmful for their health. Fortunately, it is possible to treat this condition. There are several strategies that can be used to treat these disorders. One of these methods is exposure therapy. This method involves exposing patients to situations or stimuli that they find frightening. This can help reduce the aversive response and eventually lead to extinction.

The first step in treating anxiety disorders in adolescents is to identify the causes. Anxiety in adolescence may be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition, such as depression or other mood disorders. Using a simple measure of anxiety can help clinicians determine whether an adolescent may have an anxiety disorder.

Another important step in treating anxiety disorders in adolescents is early intervention. The most effective treatments for anxiety disorders in adolescents include psychotherapy. Cognitive behavioral therapy, pharmacological interventions, or a combination of these techniques are recommended. Anxiety disorders in adolescents typically follow a chronic course and are associated with an increased risk for other disorders in adulthood.

Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-19 year-olds

Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for adolescents between the ages of 15 and 19. Nearly 46,000 children between the ages of 10 and 19 die by suicide each year, with 1 child dying by suicide every 11 minutes. Worldwide, suicide prevention is an area that requires a great deal of attention. Suicide prevention strategies should be aimed at the underlying causes and at preventing the risk factors.

In Europe, suicide accounts for about one-fifth of the total deaths in this age group. Across the globe, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death for young people, after accidents, transport accidents, and assault. Suicide death statistics have not clearly declined in the past decades.

Pandemics

Adolescents who are resilient and healthy can cope with rapid changes. However, youth who have been affected by the pandemic are likely to be more vulnerable to the negative effects. This is largely due to the fact that they are at higher risk of developing depression and substance use.

The effects of pandemics on adolescents’ mental health are far reaching. In addition to disrupting school and interactions with peers, adolescents may also be subject to a range of challenges, including social and medical isolation. They may also be experiencing less advanced emotional development. The lack of health services in schools may contribute to this, as well as increased stress and anxiety.

This study shows that children who are exposed to COVID-19 and other pandemic-related diseases are at a greater risk for developing depression and anxiety. Further, the isolation experienced during the pandemic negatively affects adolescents’ adjustment months later. Although these findings aren’t conclusive, they highlight the importance of meeting the mental health needs of today’s youth now and developing effective treatment options for those affected by pandemics.

Wars

Several recent studies have examined the effects of war on young children and adolescents.

War’s impact on children’s mental health is widespread and can be severe. It has been associated with high rates of depression and post-traumatic stress disorder. Furthermore, children displaced by war and unaccompanied minors may have poor mental health, especially as a result of flight and forced migration. Further, armed conflicts impose enormous costs in terms of disruption to education and basic social services. They also decrease educational opportunities, disrupt schooling, and result in many other risks for children.

War impacts children in multiple ways: immediate stress-responses, increased risk of developing specific mental disorders, and separation from parents. These effects run contrary to the development needs of children. Therefore, it is essential to develop multilevel, trauma-informed mental health interventions for children exposed to war.

Traumatic events

Traumatic events can affect an adolescent’s mental health in many ways. Teenagers who have been through a traumatic event may experience a decline in mood, as well as increased irritability, sadness, and anger. Some of these symptoms may not be visible to parents, but they should be taken seriously. Adolescents who experience traumatic events are also at risk of self-harm.

Parents can help their adolescent through therapy if they know what to look for. They can begin by establishing open communication with the teen and assuring them that they are not being judged. Once the teen feels safe discussing the events that triggered these feelings, parents can make referrals to appropriate professionals. Parents should also be willing to make changes in roles and reduce pressure on the teen during the recovery process.

Education

The number of adolescents reporting poor mental health is increasing, and schools and parents have a responsibility to address this problem. Poor mental health affects many areas of a teen’s life, including school, behavior, and health. It often goes hand-in-hand with other health and behavioral risks, such as violence and drug use. It is also linked to an increased risk of HIV infection and STDs. In some cases, it may even lead to unintended pregnancy.

To address this problem, educators need to understand how different school climates affect adolescents’ mental health. One study found that positive school climate correlated with lower levels of psychopathology. The findings also showed that children in more positive schools experienced less depression and greater mental well-being. Even after adjustment for other operational variables, positive school climate remained significantly associated with lower levels of psychopathology and depression.

As our children grow troubles invade their minds. Depression, anxiety, emotional and mental concerns children face. As educators, parents, caregivers, and adults talking to our children is crucial. Keeping communication open with children can reduce mental health concerns. It’s important to listen to your child’s concerns. Establish a relationship to communicate in a way of helping them feel safe and secure. Listen and be understanding of their feelings and intentions. Children depend on us. Do your part protect our children and their future.

Until our beautiful minds meet again. Be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember, Everyday Minds Matter -Della 💞🦋

🖇️ Liver function: The Connection between a Sluggish Liver, Fatigue, and A Fogging Mind 🖇️

Eat Well – Live-r Longer

Did you know that your liver’s functions go far beyond processing alcohol, drugs and medications? In fact, your liver plays an integral role in how you think, how you feel and how well your entire body functions. A sluggish liver and fatigue are linked, as are fogging mind and liver function issues like constant fatigue, brain fog and more. To learn more about why this is happening to you right now, I invite you to read on.

What is the liver?
The liver is one of the largest organs in your body and performs many functions. It produces bile that helps you digest food. It stores sugar for when your blood sugar level drops. It removes toxins from your body such as alcohol, drugs or poisons. Your liver also produces proteins needed to make new blood cells. And it makes clotting factors to help stop bleeding when you get injured. If any of these tasks are interrupted, other parts of the body can start to malfunction. People who have a sluggish liver often experience symptoms like fatigue and a foggy mind. When people drink alcohol, their liver’s ability to remove toxins decreases so they feel drunker than they actually are. Because their brain doesn’t sense how intoxicated they actually are, their judgment is impaired which may lead them to do things they might not normally do. These effects on the liver could be seen in an increase in risky behaviors such as unprotected sex and driving under the influence.

What causes a sluggish liver?
A sluggish liver can be caused by many things, such as an unhealthy lifestyle or diet. The most common cause is alcohol abuse. Chronic infections in the body also have a negative effect on the health of your liver. Stress is also known to damage your liver if it’s continual and long-term. It can lead to cirrhosis if left untreated. Cirrhosis is scarring of the liver tissue. There are two types of cirrhosis: Alcoholic Cirrhosis which is related to excessive drinking, and Nonalcoholic Cirrhosis which has no relation to alcoholism.
When symptoms develop early enough, you may be able to reverse some of the effects with dietary changes and supplements for vitamin deficiencies such as B vitamins. If symptoms don’t get better after six months though, you should seek medical help. Your doctor will probably ask about your past and family history of liver disease, since there’s a chance that you’re predisposed to developing one. They’ll then do blood tests to assess how well your liver functions and check for signs of any damage. Lastly they’ll decide whether they want you to take medication or not. If so, they’ll tell you what type of medication and how often it needs to be taken.

How to treat low-functioning liver?
You might not know it, but your liver is one of the most important organs in your body. It does so much for you! Besides breaking down alcohol and helping digest food, your liver also helps keep you alive by producing bile that helps break down fats so they can be digested. When this organ is functioning properly, it’s usually easy to live life without worrying about anything. But when your liver isn’t working as well as it should, there are many symptoms that will appear. If these symptoms persist or worsen over time, then it’s time to get help from your doctor. They’ll give you medication or supplements to make sure everything runs smoothly again. The goal is always to return your liver back to normal functioning. In order for you to maintain good health, here are some tips on how you can avoid becoming ill: 1) Drink enough water every day (a gallon at least), 2) take care of yourself with exercise and rest, 3) eat healthy foods-don’t indulge in fatty foods too often (the liver doesn’t work as hard when processing them), 4) don’t drink alcohol excessively or use drugs.

How does your liver impact your mental health?
The liver is responsible for making glycogen to store in your muscles for when you need it. It also breaks down fat so you can use it as fuel. The liver regulates levels of glucose in your blood by breaking down carbohydrates and converting them to sugar. If your liver isn’t functioning properly, then you’re more likely to feel tired because your body won’t have enough energy stored. You’ll also have mood swings, trouble concentrating, and will experience symptoms such as nausea or vomiting. Mental health issues that are linked to a sluggish liver include depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbances. When the liver is not working at full capacity, the toxins accumulate and this puts stress on other organs like your heart. There are many treatments for people with a sluggish liver including various medicines like antidepressants and beta blockers which help control blood pressure. Other treatment options may be discussed with one’s doctor depending on what type of condition they have. These treatments include various medicine types such as antidepressants and beta blockers which help control blood pressure. However, it is important to keep in mind that these conditions can be temporary or chronic but there are steps one can take to make their life easier while they wait for their liver function to recover.

It can’t be proven more so than “no liver, no life”! Don’t take fatigue lightly if consistency worsens. There are no early warnings to a Sluggish Liver. Liver damage can progress all sudden and be too late for treatment. The effects of a fogging mind and liver fatigue are connected. It’s never too late to feel your best. If you think your liver is sluggish due to unhealthy habits, ask your doctor about your liver health.

🚪When Illness Comes Knocking, Beware of Unpredictable Behavior🚪

Unpredictable

Just because someone appears to be exhibiting out of character behaviors when they are sick, doesn’t mean that they are not responsible for their actions or that they can’t control themselves any longer. In fact, the opposite may be true; sometimes the stress of being sick and in pain takes people outside of their comfort zones and they seek out outlets to relieve stress and anxiety (often in ways that are negative). For medical professionals and caregivers, it’s critical to recognize the warning signs of behaviors gone rogue and take proactive steps to protect others from harm.

Mental Health
It’s not uncommon for the symptoms of an illness to make people behave in uncharacteristically out-of-character ways. The unpredictability can be attributed to a number of factors, including the severity and type of illness, as well as the person’s coping skills.
But it can also be due to something called somatization disorder. This is when a person experiences physical pain or discomfort but does not have any underlying medical explanation for it. They will often misattribute the symptom to another condition they are aware of, like irritable bowel syndrome or depression.
This may sound like the opposite of hypochondria– someone who imagines their health problems are worse than they really are– but there are some subtle differences between the two conditions.

Bipolar Disorder
A mood disorder in which the person’s moods swings from periods of over-excitement (mania) or irritability (depression) to periods of sadness and low energy.
Mood swings can be severe, with rapid changes to emotional states that may last only hours or days. These changes are often unpredictable, and may result in a person’s temperament and personality changing dramatically.
The symptoms affect a person’s thoughts and feelings as well as their physical state. An episode is also likely to have a noticeable impact on how they act and interact with others. Bipolar Disorder has some common warning signs including difficulty sleeping, restlessness, talking excessively, racing thoughts, high levels of creativity and impulsiveness. Although there is no cure for this illness it can be managed with medication if diagnosed early enough.

Personality Disorders
Some personality disorders are linked to mental illnesses that can cause severe out of character behavior. A person with bipolar disorder may act impulsively or unpredictably when manic, while someone with paranoid personality disorder might become aggressive and irrational as they worry about things that others would find trivial. It’s important to be aware that people experiencing a mental health crisis may not always make rational decisions or know what they’re doing. Talk to them calmly and offer help if you think it’s needed. Give space and provide care without asking too many questions. If the person doesn’t want to talk about what’s going on, don’t press for information—just be there for them instead. Offer the person coping skills like meditation or deep breathing exercises so they have some tools at their disposal to use when feeling overwhelmed by their emotions.

Drug Addiction
People who suffer from drug addiction are susceptible to many different types of behavior. If they are not in the middle of an episode, they may be a completely different person. They may seem friendly and outgoing but when they need their next fix, they will become aggressive and demanding. Drug addiction is hard to control because there is always that craving for the drug. People who have this addiction will try anything to get more drugs and it usually ends up being something illegal like robbery or breaking and entering. It can lead to jail time, family problems and financial problems. Alcoholism: Alcoholism also causes unpredictable out of character behavior because alcohol affects people differently. It makes some people mellow while others act out aggressively with violent tendencies.

What Can We Do to Help?
If you’re a caregiver and need to step back for a while, it’s important to have an open dialogue with your loved one. Let them know what’s going on, that you care about their feelings and that they’re not alone. Ask them if they would like help coming up with a plan for when you’re not around. It can be as simple as providing a list of friends or family members they might contact in the event they need assistance or calling ahead to let the pharmacy know how many prescriptions are needed each week. You can also explore different living arrangements such as assisted living facilities or nursing homes, both before and after there is an emergency situation where these are necessary. Knowing how much time you will be absent will make all these arrangements easier. For example, deciding whether someone needs more care now so you don’t have to rush finding something later. When choosing between alternative living arrangements, always think about what would best suit your loved one’s needs now and in the future (i.e., having access to medical care).

Mental Health Awareness
Anxiety and depression are a common occurrence in people with chronic illness. When the person is already struggling to deal with their physical pain, it can be hard for them to have a panic attack when they are struggling to cope. The mind becomes the enemy when they cannot control what is happening. Their thoughts become their worst enemies which causes an irrational fear that something bad will happen if they don’t take action.
A lot of these behaviors are often dismissed as childish or immature but this is not the case. Mental health issues should not be ignored and should not be used as an excuse to stop treatment. Educating oneself on symptoms and treatments can help reduce the stigma that surrounds mental illnesses. There are so many factors that go into mental health including genetics, medication side effects, chronic stressors such as finances, relationships and other illnesses. There is no one size fits all answer for mental health disorders.

Mental illness is a battle that can alter behavior. The nature of behavior can impact those we love. Even though one’s behavior is a mental illness state, it’s not always excusable. However, it’s important to know it is an illness. Sometimes being out of character can’t be controlled. But the help available can prevent future effects on others.

✔️Mental Mess, Life, and God🙏

🦋My Story My Version. 🦋

When you feel like you’re addicted to something, it’s because you are. If you think about it, addiction is just a symptom of a problem. It’s not the problem itself—it’s what happens when you try to solve your problems with drugs or alcohol.

There are no pain killers that ease the pain of death. There is no pain killer in drug or alcohol form that solves any problem. My personal experience raw emotions over time, struggles of addiction and time in jail. Only one pain killer that is legit and real – Deal with it face to face. The truth is not easy, its painful, and a living hell at times. The truth is, it takes a long time to heal, cope, and deal with life events. Those challenges are open wounds. No one will admit to and wants to face – pain. My pain and struggles changed my life – forever.

Time is crucial to grief as I learnt the hard way. In my world, nothing made sense. Why? I couldn’t allow myself to feel raw emotions. Until I was forced to.

To me, I knew the pain would surface. For so long, I thought dodge ball would give me time to adjust. Time had lost its value, the world moved around me. I functioned due to that’s what life teaches us to do. The world doesn’t stop because you lost two loved ones seven weeks apart. The world doesn’t stop for anyone or anything.

Honestly, the days became a blank stare, everything moved as I stood still. My job at the time, was behind a computer. Thinking of the events was not happening while working. I choose to be a picker on a cherry picker. This the physical movement would keep my mind busy. I thought the grief had passed and life went on. Until….

September 11th, 2002. Brother that passed his birthday was Sept. 10th. That morning of the 9-11 year anniversary. In honor the company had moments of silence for both plane attacks. I buckled out of no where.. Functioning didn’t make sense. I hit my knees and fell apart. Crumbled to life raw painful emotions.. Six months after, life stopped. The only thing that matter at the moments was to leave. Walking in to my supervisors office, “I quit”. Out of character, he told me that I was okay. That I had time off work and just do whatever I could. Those words were not okay on my behalf. Once again, “I quit, you have no clue”. The HR lady called my name, and said here’s FLMA papers go to your doctor. They should give you time off work. She walked me to my car and explained the process. I went straight to my doctors office at that time. This doctor had been new and my first time meeting or seeing her. Explaining my situation, asking to help with FMLA. Her choice of words, did not go over well. She thought it was bogus to need time off work. Depression or anxiety, any of that she thought I was fine, just trying to get paid. My tolerance level just ticked. It was not the right time or practice of option, to her observation. I stood up and said, ” I hope you still have your father and your brother”. Quickly her response was ” yes I do”. I said that’s why you have no right to judge me, you have not experienced what I’m going through”. As your tongue was sharp, I hope you think next time before you share your opinion. When you can’t speak without experience just do your job. I got up to exit and my regular doctor was shocked. Leaving the office, I went to a doctor close by my house. I told the office I had just left my family doctors office and the situation. By law your not suppose to do that “doctor shopping”. I had not a care in hell, I needed help now. The doctor I seen was older, experienced, he knew I needed help. He personally made a phone call to the prior doctors office. Mentally I was a mess, yet I thought I was strong enough as time passed. Then falling apart, nothing was real. Emotions were painful, the triggers I was not aware of. The day after my brothers birthday. My mind starting thinking, remembering, wondering, and it happen. The anti-depression and anxiety medication were prescribed.

My days sleeping 15 to 20 hours a day. I must have been overwhelmed with exhaustion. If I woke up to eat or use the bathroom, daylight or night was never acknowledged. To shower was a big functioning task, that didn’t matter. Why should it when I’m just sleeping all the time, right? I became non-existent to the world. My mom would open my bedroom door check in on me. She had tried to make sense of it, her words would stick through my barely open eyes. ” I love you”, I heard many times. But I could barely move or function. Antidepressants became a non-functioning zombie creation, I hated more. My struggles were deep, changing medication made it worse. At some point over a course of 6 months time – my eyes opened more often. Hopeless, helpless, I needed help.. The struggles were daily, hourly, and serious. I suppose I got enough rest, cause I no longer wanted to sleep. Something inside of me was making sense. I rarely continued the medicine. So unconsciously I slowly detoxed from prescription medications. My only option was self-help. I began to write, as I would lay awake in bed thinking. I struggled with why would depression medicine make a person sleep.. ? Actually I started to feel worse taking the medicine. In time I was going back to work, the day was approaching. My mind was all over the place.

Slowly adding to my daily task, writing was priority and waking up was too. I had to face a lot of challenges. I had woken to a pending drug charge that was mine. My charges, my fault, not the addiction, – my problem. Not grieving, not understanding, not knowing, and hiding pain with addiction drugs and alcohol.

Functioning is a real struggle when life keeps moving. – Standing still is tough. But reality being crippled, disabled, mentally stopped in the tracks of life. Numb, thoughtlesss, living in a foggy world that I could only live in. I created this fog because I never learnt to function to death. Death- a zombie trying to drag ass through life. Life that’s so painful – crawling, due to, I been beaten, rolled, tossed, and shattered inside, and out. A hot mess in reality. I stank as a person because I didn’t know my strength. Giving up defeated me. I was all that above and more. Ripped, toren, high, drunk, and a walking mental mess.

Non-existent one where problems now surfaced and facing jail time. I felt invisible to jail, traumatized by life events, there was no excuse. My problems were my responsibility to be human again. Face life as I now had challenges. Obstacles that surely did want to face.

I had to report monthly to my parole officer. I had a great job, I was drug free and I honestly felt great. My goal was to conquer my grief with positive energy. At work, I pushed my limits to excel. But I felt alone. The lonleness created another addiction – sex. The truth is I was going to the gym working out, feeling great, going to the tanning bed, I never felt so amazing with ambition, life made sense. Or did it? My sex addiction was replaced from drug addiction. I made a promise to God to keep me safe and protect me during my journey of exploring sex options.. I refused to be attached to any man. I had lost two of my favorite men in my life. Loving a man was not an option at the time. My plan of action was in form of good habit routine. I was loving yet not lovable to my inner pain. My parole was about done. Drinking started regularly as my sex addiction slowed. My habits were changing as I knew my routine was about to be disrupted. Filling a blank isn’t always easy.

The challenges of living back on track “the good life”, still has negative impacts. After completing parole, I now had a felony charge on my background and record. Career moves and education would be tested. Blessed with a hard work ethic, my felony never gave any problems. In time I had my felony expunged. That wss inner peace of my self. I furthered my education with a Bachelors of Science degree in Psychology in 2010. I was coming alive inside cause I knew how to. Overtime I Iearnt what it takes to overcome. Being defeated is temporary. I felt I wasn’t strong enough to fight, down to being defeated. Wrong was I? I built an empire that I never knew was possible. So much can be done. No that anything is possible with one tool.. The master to life is 🗝️ to the mind, and that’s time. Educating the Mind. Your mind is power. You have the world of endless dreams when you open your mind. Educating the mind to life is a promise to overcome challenges. The best defense is knowing you have the option to learn. My life is far from perfect, knowing life makes sense is what matters. Struggles are life’s tools that give us strength. Love is an opportunity to prove your worth of being human. Love is told to be a beautiful thing. Love is the most painful experience that one must face. Truth be known Death is the love to eternal life. We must feel the worst level of extreme pain. That pain of life is the sacrifice to death. Afterlife of no pain, no sorrow just pure happiness of a world created by our God. My God has shown me life that exist beyond realm. As I have felt and visioned the life through my own eyes.

Life is precious to our eternal days. We will face the good Lord with treasures of our character. If those treasures are damaged at fault of yours, overcoming might be challenging.. Life of misery and hell will be provided, as you create your destiny. Time here on earth is measured by blessing to help one another, and valued human life as you perceive it. Hurting others and offering negative energy maybe your choice to void eternal life that’s promised. Until that judgement day is face to face with death. May you be the best product to life. A product everyone is proud to know and be a part of. If those words bite or sting- you have power of the mind to educate your options to overcome actions and behaviors. You are stronger than you think. As the mind never fails if you apply the time and work. Defeat is not an option to eternal life. Challenges may be mountains but mountains can be climbed. Lace up those boots and motivate the knowledge to be your best self. Life is best when dealt with by learning to overcome with a powerful tool – the mind.

Thank you for your time and for visiting ✔️Mental Mess, Life, and God. 👣 – My Story My Version – 👣

Not everything has an immediate solution. But knowledge can help you through it. Patience and time will guide you if your willing to put in the work.

If you want to stop using, there are a few things you can do:

First, figure out what caused you to start using in the first place. Was it a traumatic experience? Was there someone who told you that using drugs or alcohol was acceptable? Was it peer pressure? Childhood environment? Life has so many hidden stressors that we are blinded by. When we think, we aren’t strong enough? Think about a plan of action to overcome. Keep the plan fresh in mind. Support yourself with enjoyable positivity. Once positivity begins to flow, it becomes a regular flow.

Once you’ve figured this out, make sure that whatever caused your addiction no longer exists for you. If someone tells you that drugs or alcohol will make your life better, try not to believe them. They may have been lead by peer pressure and may have had some sort of experience with drugs or alcohol themselves—but they’re not responsible for your decisions and can’t expect you to make the same choices they did.

The next step is figuring out how much time and money are going towards solving these problems and how many hours of sleep are being lost because of them. Identifying these things will help keep track of solving the problem. Addiction is easy.. Overcoming is a challenge but your mind is powerful to help you through. Don’t give up.. Get up and face to challenge. In time you will gain so much positivity, ambition will guide you with a peace of mind.

Love to hear your experience and rewards of overcoming challenges you experienced. Shared stories can be the best therapy for another who is challenged with life of addiction or events. Feel free to share your experience.

Until our beautiful minds meet again. Be safe out there. Many blessings and much love. Remember Everyday Minds Matter – Della 💞🦋
