It’s All About Perception

Good Day Friends! Today I’m thinking about how we perceive certain things in our lives and how much perception makes a difference in whether or not we have a good day or a bad day. Sometimes, we are unable to avoid bad days, but overall, I believe perception determines whether we allow those bad days…

For the Easily Offended

It seems as though when dealing with mental illness, it is easily to take constructive criticism the wrong way.

Do I Lack Compassion?

Hey Friends, So, I’ve been thinking a lot about compassion and how much I’ve lacked it over the years. I mean, in my opinion, I haven’t been an extremely judgemental person, but I have had moments where I would hear a rumor and “shake my head” at it, thinking to myself how much of a…

Why You Should Get Yourself A Mentor

Hey Friends, The past few days, I’ve been struggling with mental illness stuff. Nothing too dramatic, just everyday life situations.

What Are Gods Truths About Us?

Hello Friends, There are many days that we can get stuck in our heads and believe what Satan says about us. When Satan tells us lies, in order to convince us, he’ll put his thoughts in “I” statements so it could seem like they are our thoughts and not his. I want to share with…
