Time for some happiness. :)

Today I was sitting here at the computer very uninspired and not sure what I was going to write about and so I decided that why write something when I could just share this song that someone shared with me and it put me into a good mood. Here it is, no matter how down in the dumps you are im sure that this might make you forget about things for a little while and get into a good mood! :)



Another thing that might to help to cheer you up if you are feeling a bit down is this picture, I know it cheered me up and got my mind off things for a while.



I know I didnt right a lot today but this is a happy post that might to help make you feel good I know writing this post helped me to keep my mood up today so I hope that it does something for you too! :)

Strength!

Lately I have been struggling a lot with things that are going  on in my own life and well I began to think that there was no hope left for me and that I have no future to look forward to and I was really pretty down and I really didn't know what to do with my self and then out of no where I saw that my family do care about me and they are the people that are going to get me through all of the hard times. I now know that no matter how many fights we have or how many times I annoy them they are always going to be there for me no matter what!

The other day my brother sent me a message on facebook and well I think that was what I really need to help me to get my head straight and think about getting back on track and it has it has done a lot for me. To be honest if it wasn't for hm I would have just have gone the way that I have been going and not even stopped to think about things. It made my whole view on things change and I decided that it was time to be honest with the doctors and the nurses and begin to let them help me get back on track. I also decided that it was time to start and rebuild the trust I have lost with my family and this time I am going to try my best to get better sand to get out of this hospital as soon as I can. It might have taken me three months in here to realise but I am glad that I finally have realise and now I know that it is never to later to talk to people and it is never to late to realise things!

My brother sent me this song and told me to listen to it and I did and it made me feel a bit better in myself.It is time for things to start to change for me because I know that I can do it and if you are going through a hard time you can get through it to. You are strong and you are not made to break like my brother said. So if you are going through a hard time reach out to people and let them help you don't turn them away like I did. Let them help you. You might not think it now but they will help you and things will get better. It might take some time but it can and it will happen you just have to have faith in yourself and dig down deep to find the strength that you have inside you and use it to get back on track.

Things will get better you just have to give it some time. I have given things time and they are starting to get better so just take your time. Things always work out in the end. Yeah it will be hard and it might be long but it might be short but if you just focus you can do anything. Believe in yourself and anything is possible. " Nothing is impossible even the word its self says I'm Possible" I know that it can be hard believe me I have been through hard times but the most important thing is let the people who want to help you help you. It is the only way. You cant do this on your own and you don't have to. Speak out and let people know what is going on. Don't be ashamed to speak out and ask for help. We all need help at times so don't be scared things will get better!

Thanks to my brother, my best friend Paul I have started to think about things. I dont know what I would do without my family they mean everything to me.

Some day everything will make sense.

Some day everything will make perfect sense and to help you keep hope I heard this from a friend and it helps me to look at things a more positive way.

"Someday everything will all make sense, so for now laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears, and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason"

This quote has got me through some of the hard times and all though it doesnt seem like it will do all that much for a person who is going through a hard time if you really think about it, it can make a difference for the better.


One month to go!!! :)

There is only one month left until Shane and Amys big day. Im so excited for this wedding. Hopefully everything goes according to plan. :)

SOS.

I heard about this charity while I was in hospital and I decided to look it up. I had never heard anything about it until I was in a group and we were talking about things in the news paper and this charity SOS came up and we had a discussion about it. The charity SOS is Suicide or Survive and is  a charity that was set up to help reduce the stigma that is attached to mental health and mental health difficulties. Here is the link to the charity website take a look at the website and see what you think of it yourself.

I know when I was going through a rough time and I heard about this charity and did some research that it helped me to understand things a bit better but it also helped me to feel that I was not alone in everything that was going on for me. It really did make a difference for me and I am glad to say that this website is one of the reasons that I am still here today and that I am here writing this post. This really is a truly and amazing website and I am glad I found it when I did. I hope this website might help you or someone that you know if they are going through a tough time in life and just remember that suicide is a final solution to a temporary problem. Believe me I have tried to take my own life three times and I am great full that I have not succeeded because I have now worked through some of the hard things in my life. Thing might not seem like they will get better but take it from someone who has experienced a lot of hardship in life... Anything is impossible and things will get better. Maybe not today but someday they will!

I wish I knew what happened there...... I have some crazy friends.

I can and You can!

Ever since I began to get unwell and end up in hospital people began to tell me that I can get through this and well for a long time I didnt believe the doctors and the nurses and m friends and my family but now having got this far I know that they were right. So when someone tells you that you can do something say to yourself that you can because I know thats one of the thkngs that helped me get to where I am today. I can do this and I will do this.

Dealing with urges.

I was doing some research on the internet about different ways people can cope with their urges to self harm and I found this very useful site. Take a look at it here.

I use ome of theses different things to help me cope with my stong urges. The most important thing that I have learned about dealing with my urges to self harm is that it wont hurt to try anything new. If it doesnt work then it doesnt work and try something new. You can be suprised at the things that can help you cope..... I was very reluctant to try some things to help me cope but once I did I realised that they were really useful and they have helped me with my recovery so far.

Its just another hurdle!

First let me start this post by saying sorry for not posting for a while things have been a bit hetic with starting back to school and going home from the hospital during the week days I have just been really busy so I am sorry for not posting. So yeah things have just been a bit up and down especially over the past few days and I was feeling pretty shit..... I was talking to someone who without even knowing has helped me more than she can imagine through everything that is going on. I know this person for a few years and she has experienced some of the things that I am going through right now and to be honest if it wasnt for her I would have given up a long time ago.

I couldnt understand why bad things kept happening to me and they were always getting me down and this friend said that when things got her down she just thought of it as another hurdle and it was going to make her stronger. I was thinking about this for a while and in the beginning i thought it didnt make any sense and Ishould just give up but after thinking about it I realised that she is right! If you can get over this hurdle then you can get over the next and the next and it is only going to make you stronger.  So really the point of this post is to show that it is good to look at the bad things that happen to you as just another hurdle and with the right help you can get past it and become a stronger person for it.

I know some of the things that have been the  biggest hurdles for me have made me a much stronger person and while it might not seem that way all the time it really has. People are always going to try and make your life miserable but the important thing is not to let them win. Some people just dont want to see you happy and you have to stand up for yourslef and show them that nothing is going to stop you from being happy and getting back to being the person you were before things in life got really hard for you.

Depression is  NOT a sign of weakness. It is a  sign that you have been strong for too long.  Did you know that 1 in each 3 of us will go through this at some point in our lives? Share the support! Let those who struggle know they're not alone, they are loved.
