Suicide Isn’t The Only Option

I saw this on Facebook and it really made me think, it is so true.   When we are feeling suicidal we need to remember this and think about our loved ones that would be left to pick up the pieces alone.

Please, if you are feeling suicidal speak to someone or call lifeline on 13 11 14.

Take care and have a good day.

I have created a page on this blog for all of us suffering with scleritis to come together to discuss, share stories and offer support.

If you have scleritis, come and visit my page and tell your story.  I appreciate your input and will respond to all comments.

Let’s All Keep Talking

Standard

Recently I got my wires crossed with someone who I spend a lot of time with.  I misread a situation and made judgements based on those thoughts.  It turned out I was wrong and I feel bad about that.

I think communication is the key here, no matter how bad we are feeling we need to keep the lines of communication open so that confusion and assumptions don’t happen.  Talking is essential to good mental health and good relationships.

I have some serious stuff going on in my life with my eye health and my friend has a lot going on too and somewhere along the way we stopped talking and that’s where the confusions begins.  It puts niggling little doubts in your head, have I done something wrong?  Are you upset with me?  Then it builds up and gets out of proportion when really there is nothing wrong at all.  You just think there is.

The moral of this story is to keep talking.  It doesn’t do our mental wellbeing any good to bottle things up, it just makes us stressed and sad.

Keep talking people!

Dealing with Moody

How hard is it to deal with moody people on a daily basis? It’s exhausting walking around on eggshells not knowing whether to make conversation or keep your mouth shut and let them get on with it.   It’s hard to know where you stand when one day you get a good morning, another day you get grunted at and some days you get nothing at all.

People can be moody for all sorts of reasons, hormonal changes, personal problems at home, work problems, we all have problems and we all deal with them in different ways but when you start to let your moods affect other people then it becomes a problem.  One moody person in a room can affect the balance and wellbeing of every other person in that room.

So how should we deal with a moody person?

I guess we should just go about our business and act normally after all its nothing personal, it’s their problem not mine.  I should keep my distance and do not pay the moodiness any attention but be there for that person if they do want to talk.

I read a really good tip on My Self Improvement Daily, it says: –

Learn to ignore the negative mood.  Pretend the other person isn’t moody at all.  Just go about your day as if nothing were wrong.  We can’t control others, but we can control our reactions to them.  With practice, it becomes easier than you think.  The moodiness of others doesn’t have to have a big impact on you.

So that is pretty much what I was thinking, carry on and do not take any notice of it.  Right, I can do that!

Have a good day everyone.
