So I figured I’d give some insight in how I handle my own mental resources. Just remember this isn’t for everyone, people have their own ways of dealing, it’s just what I do.
1: practise self care often and emotional first aid
(Good example) www.ted.com/talks/guy_winch_th…
2: Avoid engaging in negative self talk, that shit is like pouring salt in open wounds. It can be hard but try your best to train yourself to be mindful and catch yourself out doing that shit.
3: Do positive affirmations often to create better pathways in the mind.
4: Avoid creating bad belief systems about yourself and worth on creating better ones that lead to more pleasure and less pain.
5: Look into some self help content if that’s your bag(Through be careful since a lot of shady political people use it to sell toxic ideologies designed to prey on alienated people, so always look into stuff first hand)
6: If your mental health is really bad or you feel there are problems, go see a god damn doctor, pride only gets people killed so drop it. Your mind, body and spirit are a temple, somethings wrong then get on that shit ASAP.
7: When things get bad remember it’s not your fault and punishing yourself isn’t going to make anything better, this ties into creating bad belief systems that lead you towards further pain.
8: Talk to friends and supportive people, it really helps a little when you’re a little down.

PS: If you have medication due to depression, PTSD etc then remember to take your dang meds. If they are not working out talk to your doctor to find one that does or other choices of treatment. Don’t suffer in silence.

Just someone that likes to check out peoples works. I mostly make a lot of multimedia odds and ends from my passion in spriting as I've been part of the spriting community since 2005, creating garrys mod stuff and of course creating works with walfas which is a lot of fun. I also do a bit of writing and poetry on the side and enjoy worldbuilding~
I'm a nice person, don't be afraid to strike up a conversation with me if you feel like it. Through on one note, I don't put up with bullshit, harassment, being a dick for the sake of being one or drama, if you come here to be an ass you will be removed, other than that hope you enjoy whatever odds and ends I post~
Groups I support
Friends/awesome people etc
