How to stay healthy during social distancingHello, dear people!
Welcome back to GuidingLightProject !
This is my first guest journal I have ever written, and I feel honoured to publish this here!
Considering the current events and the crisis we are all going through due to Covid-19 and the consequent precautions and restrictions, I thought it would be a good time for some helpful hints how to cope with this unprecedented and for many of us anxious situation.
For some of us, it might be even a good 'excuse' for staying (alone) at home and not having to go somewhere. However, for others it might be frightening and also threatening with social isolation. But be aware that 'social distancing' does not mean 'social isolation'.
Depending on where you are located, the rules and restrictions might be differently stringent, but more or less we are stuck at home most of the time.
So in this journal, I would like to share with you a list of 8 things to help you make the best out of it!
Of course in the end we will have plenty of ro

Membership requests are automatically approved, and you can now submit your work to our gallery as well as pitch us an idea for collaborations on journals, check out the guidelines for both here. We have some awesome plans, so stay tuned! We'll keep you updated on what's to come!

Much love,

If anyone needs someone to talk to or a shoulder to lean on feel free to message me! I am dealing with Panic/Anxiety attacks and PTSD my whole life and had the privilege of meeting people who helped me through these tough times.
I am not a Psychiatrist or a medical worker but I still love to help people.
Just know that you are special and there are people who love you no matter what!
Have a nice day, internet stranger! I can do it! We believe in you!

This is absolutely beautiful to find on dA, a community of such clear support and love. I am so happy to have found this group thanks to another lovely member. (:

I wanted to share that any time, to anyone, my inbox is wide open so I can do my very best to help brighten someone's day and bring hope back to them. I have a lot of experience with depression, self-harm, and suicidal thoughts, as well as anxiety and relationship-oriented PTSD. But anyone who needs anything really can reach out to me and I will try to help! ♥

I am really lonely. I have Mental Illness and I am not able to go to my Clubhouse due to Covid 19. If anyone would like to be an e-mail friend please send me a note. I am a good listener and I also like to share. I need a new friend.

My name is Destini I'm a 19-year-old female soon to be a college student. I'm a writer of poems and stories. I have often struggled with my self-esteem and self-confidence due to my parent's treatment of me.  Due to my folks, I developed my writing skills as a form of escapism but one day I hope to turn it into my living. Showing everyone that despite my handicaps I'm not as worthless as they may think. Some of my friends suffer from mental health issues as well and I try to help them where I can. I'm here to be an encouragement to others or at least give them a brief escape from their troubles.

Guys where's the join button

Hey, thank you for accepting my request to join the group. Mental Health is my cause and Art is my medicine. Did you know that there is a way to get Art Supplies donated to your Mental Health organizations? The secret is Simple- you just have to ask the right people. Sadly, my idea worked too well and now "professional artists" are profiting by my Program. But that doesn't get me down because my goal was free supplies for low-income people (specifically my Mental Health Clubhouse) and I have so much Art Supplies the staff started worrying about where to put everything. And I became an Artist. I had just been donated a Sewing Machine when this Covid-19 happened and now I can't go get it. The one thing about becoming a materialist is that there is always just one more thing you gotta have. I hope to meet friends, find other passionate people, and enjoy Life. A pic of a toy I can't afford, don't need, and desperately want!
