Mental Health Monday – 01.02.23

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness Quick write to start the year. One thing first;these posts aren't meant to be instructive. I can't tell you what to do. These posts are me trying to reinforce things in my own head, for myself. I'm just trying to find ways to cope with the world and my place in it, and writing … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 01.02.23

Mental Health Monday – 12.19.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness Christmas week. We're going to be pushing -40°C here this week. Things break at this temperature. Skin freezes in minutes. It is certain death, if you are stuck outside. Look after yourself, and if you have the means, look after someone else. We don't always know what it is we need, but we need … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 12.19.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness "Slow and steady wins the race." We all know the story of "The Tortise and the Hare." Recently, I've seen a lot of fitness trainers promoting the idea of consistency over intensity. I tend to agree, that the things we do consistently over time become habits, which become part of who we are, good … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 12.05.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness The secret that's not a secret. I mean, it's got to be pretty obvious by now that even those at the highest levels of our power structures are completely clueless as to where to go next, sometimes. Most of us in Regular People World face problems day to day that we don't have any … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 11.28.22

Mental Health Monday – 10.10.22

The Future. Not looking like we thought it would a few years ago. Shit, to be honest,  I don't think that the world at a macro level looks much the same as it did a few years ago. Feels different, too. Like someone really messed up the timeline and now we're all left scrambling to … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 10.10.22

Mental Health Monday – 10.03.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness We're all struggling. Every one of us. We all have doubt, and fear, and stress. We all have too many bills and not enough income. We all have trouble with our relationships. We all have a clock in the back of our heads ticking away at the moments we have, while the mountain of … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 10.03.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness "I don't care". I hear this a lot from people from my generation. Gen X, 90's kids. All grown up, now. This was our claim to fame. A semi-detached form of neo-nihilism that colored our generation. We got it from our older brothers and sisters. The 80's kids. The "Me" generation. The 50's, 60's, … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 09.26.22

Mental Health Monday – 08.22.22

#mentalhealthmonday#mentalhealthawareness Hate and anger. These days we see them played out as emotional currency. Rage of the oppressed and the perceived oppressed alike doled out like fiat dollars to the broke masses. The idea that negative emotion is a bargaining chip has poured a destructive energy gasoline into our socially collective campfire, and now we're … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 08.22.22

Mental Health Monday – 08.15.22

#mentalhealthmonday #mentalhealthawareness Comfort. Pride. Ego. The downward spiral of "Good enough". It's a trap we all fall into, like a cunning spider's web we cannot avoid. We want to think that the work we have done is sufficient. We want to believe that we know the way, and the path, and that we are far … Continue reading Mental Health Monday – 08.15.22

You Are Weak

You are weak. Always given over, yet you never change at all. Just stay a punk, keep sucking up to some other motherfuck, who won't be there to catch you when you fall.   You're so afraid, fear's driven you crazy. Salvation ain't that easy, at least not when you're me. Survival is not the … Continue reading You Are Weak
