Social Media And Mental Health

1 (3).pngAs a very introverted, anti-social woman, I have no problem admitting that I don’t enjoy social media. My reasoning is what you’d expect from someone like me. I am easily exhausted by human interaction, anxious, and sometimes prone to irritation. Social media can be a great tool for connecting or re-connecting with people, building a business, and even befriending new people with similar interests. However, social media can also be a war zone. People spew hate-speech, publicly (virtually) crucify people for their mistakes, and cyber-bully the innocent. Today, it is my personal preference to Continue reading

The Art of Not Giving A Damn

The Art.png

It’s really easy for me to tell someone that I “couldn’t care less” about whatever their problem is- especially when they’ve got a problem with me. It’s even easier for me to brag to other people about how resilient and “thick-skinned” I am. Yet, my anxiety at its core has always been the exact opposite. I’m like a fruit or vegetable with a hard outer shell, but the inside is as mushy as melted ice-cream. Anxiety makes me vulnerable.

Tomorrow marks the end of my new job. It’s crazy to think that nearly 2 months ago I said I was unhappy about starting this job, but now I’m sad just imagining it ending. I love my job. I’ve gained so much from it. Wisdom, closure for past trauma, friendship, and perhaps more. I can’t believe that it went by so quickly and not a single day was “bad”. I just can’t believe it’s almost over. I can remember the day I walked in, confused and Continue reading

7 Month Update & Why I Don’t Believe in 9 to 5’s

I’m officially 7 months out from “the big day” and I’m in need of a serious attitude adjustment. Life has been fairly good to me, so it makes no sense for me to be unhappy about anything. My classes are coming to an end and I only have a couple of actual final exams. The rest are just paper and projects that I’ll submit or present on the exam day. This was also my last semester of “real classes” as I like to call them, so from this point forward, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get by. I’ve had no social disputes with anyone and my love life is still in-tact (I’m not seeing anyone at the moment but I’m not unhappy about my love life either). So then, why am I feeling less than enthused? Continue reading
