Be A Friend-Mental Health

Hey guys, I hope you are finding that even with everything going on it is important to take care of yourself and check in with those you care about.

Not everyone has a lot of free time I understand that… but it take less than 5 minutes to type “hey, how are you?”

Being a distant friend is okay.

Being a friend that has their own problems is okay.

What is not okay, is being a shitty friend and then complain when you get left behind.

I make it a point every week or so to check in with a few people. Make sure they are okay mentally. To let them know hey, Im here.

Sometimes its what saves the day. I know for me when my girls check in on me it helps to keep my on track. Like perfect someone cares, someone wants me to be okay.

Im not sure I guess this is just a reminder to be a decent person. It shouldn’t always be about you. Others need a mental check too.

#BlackLivesMatter

In a world so dark and shitty, I know my babies will grow up and be kind.
My boys are mixed. White. Black and Japanese.
I may not fear like mothers/families because they are so asian and white in complexion.

But I do fear for the world they are growing up in and will have to navigate someday.
This is the time to talk to your kids and explain what is going on. Teach them to love all colors and stand up for what is right.  Teach them to not be colorblind because right now we need to see color and love it.

As a mother, my heart hurts for the black mothers and fathers. I hope this all ends soon. We can not sit by and let more lives be taken.

2020 Mental Health

May is half way over already! Time has been flying by this year. How are you holding up? Is this time at home giving you a struggle with mental health? Are you more stressed, or maybe more tired…

Its okay. This isnt a normal life right now. It can be challenging and hard. If you have kids you might be battling a few issues at once. Maybe you dont have kids but are struggling because of a loss of a job.

No matter what is going on, please know there are resources, there are people to help!

Mental disorders; there’s more than just anxiety and depression. OCD is super common, but it can be an issue! Phobias, ugh I have a few. They can make certain tasks harder than need be. Bipolar disorder often times goes misdiagnosed…eating disorders… they may be triggered by stress.

What ever the problem is, know that you deserve to be happy. You deserve to enjoy life. If you are struggling, reach out to me and i can help find the right people to talk to.

You are not alone.

You are loved and cared about.
