    @whyamialive you may agree or may not, but there’s more people with depression than you think, aka , many people felt the same way as you do.
    However is quite pointless feeling that way. You need to love yourself enough that you get courage and start to do things to actually change your life. Example: not happy with your job? Find another one.…[Read more]

    • I know. It’s unfortunate that those who have been abused have to live with the scars forever, while the people who abused usually find nothing wrong in what they did as they live their lives.

    • What cracks me up the most about childhood abuse, is that it comes from the people who are suposed to protect you and take care of you. Unfortunately, not everybody is aware of the damage they can really do. I’m sorry to hear you’ve gone through these experiences, Mariko. As you said, the scars are forever, but so is your strenght.

    @self-caring-grape I’m the last type. To me humour is a coping skill, it makes a topic easier to talk about. So when I do make that joke (obviously only with certain people) or others do it, I always laugh because of it.

    @m1s1m3 I have so much apreciation for nurses. You work all your lives helping others.
    Little random, but when I was diagnosed with IBS the nurses did more than doctors. Was thanks to them that I managed to find a diagnosis.
    So I’m sure your patients are in good hands and enjoying your help and company.

    Self care is the most important thing ever.
    Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
    Take care of yourself. Love yourself. Even if it means distancing yourself from others.

    • You are so right @marikofujimoto, it is important to look after yourself physically, emotionally and mentally, remember to always do what makes you happy when you are doing self care, watch something that makes you smile, read, draw, go out some place fun, eat your favourite food, spend time with people you love or with your adorable pet, do have…[Read more]

    • I couldn’t say it better. I do agree with you Mariko, we must take care of ourselves. Of course we have to take care of each other, and help people in need. Although that doesn’t mean we have to let our health be consumed so everyone else can have theirs restored. So, just as you said, never forget to take care and love yourselves!

    • Thank you. I really needed this reminder. Hope you are doing well.

    I’ve been through alot in my life. Abuse, mental health, bullying…
    However lately I notice alot of hatred towards men. So, as someone who has suffered I want to say that yes, there are evil men. But there’s also wonderful men out there.
    There’s good and bad people in both males and females.
    Just wanted to spread some love.

    • That’s an amazing and a necessary way of thinking Mariko! You are so right, there’s good and evil everywhere. There’s no use labeling a certain group of people as inherently bad, since that’s the best way to spread hate towards them. We need more love in our world. Thank you for your words! <3

    • Always focus on the good in the world @marikofujimoto, help those in need and shine a light on all the heart-warming and positive things that go on Mariko, don’t let the negativity get you down, you are correct sweetie, there is much bad in the world but like you said, spread the love, compassion, empathy and hope, you are a survivor Mariko,…[Read more]

    • Yes, so true! This needs to be said. People, regardless of who they are can be good & bad and are good and bad, though I believe most people are good when it comes to who they are & specific issues should be addressed instead of making generalizations
