So @mentallyawareng is doing a #ilovemeselfie challenge, where u post a selfie and talk about your fears and insecurities and how u have overcome them to inspire people... Growing up, i was considered by many to be unstable and this was so true. For a long time i battled with my emotions it was as if "i feel too much". I was emotionally unstable, what ever i feel, i felt in excess. There were days i locked myself up in my room wondering " what is wrong wit me? Why cant i just be normal? Do people even feel this way? ". Not until recently, thanks to a family frnd who is helping me, he made me realize that my being this way is a gift! And like every gift i had to accept it and learn to control my emotions to be able to harness my gift. I had to find peace within myself, love myself so much as though my life depended on it(thinking bout it now, it actually depends on it) and lastly block out the voices of fear n uncertainties for that was my greatest enemy! I am writing this because i believe i am making progress and to let people know that being gentle on yourself matters alot and also just having the right person talk to you at the right time can make all d difference.
I am nominating @mz_zizi @mistur_marley @luciuz_kain @chexperanza @penmarktomdoc @litblogger to participate in diz challenge using hastags #ilovemeselfie #mentallyawareng #iammentallyaware #zerosuicide

Challenge accepted @iyanuolaosebikan . I have learnt how to love myself and embrace my uniqueness because I believe everyone is unique in their own way and has something that someone needs in their life, also to be happy with who I am. I love myself first before I can love other people around me (As God said, Love thy neighbour as yourself). I am also my greatest fan and cheerleader πŸŽ‰ I have something to offer,so do you. #SelfLove #ZeroSuicide #IamMentallyAware #mentallyawareng @mentallyawareng I therefore challenge @minka_ndifon @jesupelumi_a @opedara @_jhemie

@Regrann from @crosseyednerd - And it's still about MANI @mentallyawareng πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ #happybirthday #iammentallyaware - #regrann

"Doc, why do i have to be subjected to restricted movement? "
.
"In regular circumstances, you'd have been placed under special surveillance in the hospital. "
.
In 2011, i had this very pretty, smart neighbour who'd get sad for "no real reason". I'd call her crazy, because I really didn't understand.....until 2012 when the mood swings became longer than usual, then the anxiety fits found their way in. By late 2014, the dark clouds had formed a full, thick ring around the walls of my mind. .
In the last 28 months, I have changed jobs on three different occasions (I quit my job at a first generation bank last October), I've seen people who love(d) me walk away because they couldn't break through the pitch black, I've seen friendships strained because I could not mentally process appropriate responses when they reached out, I've been unable to follow through on opportunities because I'm an idea hub one moment and mentally arid the next. It's easy to say "speak up, reach out"........but acting it out is a different matter entirely. Have you ever been referred to as "unstable" by a crush, repeatedly ? Have you ever been blown off when you tried to open up about the Sunday night jitters and the 2.37am restlessness ? Have you ever spilled your guts to someone and next thing you heard was "see, let me call you back" on multiple occasions ? .
I've since turned myself in for therapy, and doses of antidepressants. Will the dark cloak be shed off ? Time will tell....but I've decided not to try too hard to be likeable, or sane, or even try to fit into conventional definitions of maturity. I've decided to save my voice only for those who'll listen, and not to bother stressing my thumbs and battery for the ones who wont appreciate texts. Who says i can't decide to switch off the phone when I want, or decide to just be alone with my thoughts ? I'll be unsure, I'll be anxious, but I won't 'sign out' without at least getting around to being friends with myself. #iloveme #ilovemeselfie #zerosuicide #iammentallyaware .

Sometimes words don't do justice, but how else would have communicated πŸ˜‚.. OK here it goes I have always bent my happiness to people's opinion of me! Especially my parents.. They are so hard working one would wonder if they were programmed to be like that! And they Unimaginably successful in everything they do,, looking at my life I feel like I didn't come forth from these two successful people!! In all I do! I try to think like them!! Imagine like them but it never worked, I just wonder where I was deported fromπŸ˜‚ 2. People always have a bad first impression of me, this has been happening since I993πŸ˜‚, it's always about my unconscious looks😒, I don't know Aw to explain this! They say she is a snob!! If only they know I love them😭😭 she is proud, she is queen bee 😒😒.. I decided to be laid back., show myself less n be reserved😊. 3 I av talents in public speaking but since Alot people are hating I barely speak!! Thank God for writing πŸ˜‚! Bin writing since 1993πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚..but in all dis challenges I have become very strong enough to know that I am me and not my parents..! I should be me😊 about the hating I live with. Am done trying to prove am not like dat! Yea happy me! So I will become me to the fullest πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ˜˜ #ilovemeselfie #iammentallyaware @mentallyawareng

Don't give a eulogy when you can give a listening ear.
Don't dedicate a post when you can dedicate a little time and attention.
Don't wear a cloud of sadness when you can be a ray of sunshine.
Don't give sympathy when you can give empathy.
