Because I had to…
Out There – Hunchback of Notre Dame
I love this song. I sing it to myself because I want to live ILLNESS-FREE!
Aren’t we all like Quasimodo? Waiting to be accepted from something, someone, everyone..
Just one day…
(thank you Disney for always getting it right..)
When MUSIC ATTACKS!
This isn’t a bash Beyoncé post, because I love Beyoncé, but this is a post that is going to sound pretty weird…
I hate this song because I am NOT FLAWLESS. AT ALL.
I woke up like this:
Songs nowadays make you want to be this AWESOME I DON’T NEED NO ONE NOTHING IS EVER WRONG person, but the truth this…that is not the truth. I wake up hating life, hating my situation, looking horrible, but the songs right now aren’t on my level. How is this helping out our world when all anyone can think of is materialistic things?
Am I going about this the wrong way? Should I use these songs are ANTHEMS? How do you when you can’t relate..
One song I HATED was Pharrell’s Happy because I was never happy, and the damn song was everywhere!!
Are there any songs that you hate because they make you feel blah? Are there any that are your anthems?
Break Free – Ariana Grande ft. Zedd
I am trying to BREAK FREE from all the negative thinking I have going on.
BREAK FREE from smoking
BREAK FREE from feeling blah everyday
I’M STRONGER THAN I’VE BEEN BEFORE!
I Me Mine – The Beatles
This song really makes me think about I, Me, and… well.. MINE.
Isn’t that what everyone thinks about all the time? I think if you have a mental illness you think about yourself way more than others. This is because you always have to be “ahead of the game” when it comes to your illness. That is why they tell you to go help others or volunteer to get your mind off you… your mind.
Damn, all through the day… I me mine, I me mine, I me mine
Sum 41 – Still Waiting
So am I
For this world
To STOP HATING.
I sing this song when i’m angry.
Blink 182 – I Miss You
I love this song.
I remember listening to this album when my family was coming apart at the seams. This album seemed to save me.
This particular song brings me back…
Frou Frou – Let Go
Did you know there is BEAUTY IN THE BREAKDOWN?
This song tells you so. Listen and relax.
Bjork – Hyperballad
This video and song is weird, but listen to the lyrics. This song is talking about a woman having to get up earlier to throw things off a cliff to make herself get through her day.
I feel like her everyday, but I don’t have a cliff…
How to Tell if Someone is Faking Mental Illness
What do you think?
Do you know of someone who faked or fake Mental Illness??
A new TV show that is coming soon to the ABC network called Black Box. According to IMDb the synopsis is
“Catherine Black, a famed neuroscientist, with a job at the Center for Neurological Research and Treatment, struggles with mental illness and its one of the many secrets she hides from her fiancé and her family.”
I am intrigued. I’m going to watch it and support the show because it is exposing mental illness to the public, but I am going to be weary because sometimes the portrayal of mental illness on screen is scary and overwhelming.
Please watch it with me and let discuss what you think!
Science of Mental Health
A cool 3:00 minute video about the brain and mental health!
OF TWO MINDS Official Trailer
I was snooping around my own stuff here on WordPress and I re-read a comment left on one of my pages inviting to check out their documentary. They also thanked me for blogging, which was nice 🙂
but I finally checked it out and it is awesome. I really want to see it. It made me feel like I was watching myself. Please check it out.
Aaliyah – Try Again
I am TOTALLY feeling this way right now.
I have overcome a situation that I been dreading for a while. It failed, but I tried and presented it in a different way, and I got results. Quickly! I’m really glad that I didn’t stop planning and walk away. I know understands what this songs really means. This is what it must feel like for people who aren’t faking this, because ultimately, isn’t taking medicine faking?
another time maybe. enjoy.
Enya – May It Be
This song is so good. So powerful. So calming and…well sad.
It always puts me to sleep (because its soothing, not because it sucks) and I totally enjoy Enya when I am feeling angry or ugh. Please listen to this song if your feeling rage or out of control and Enya will put jt down.
Don’t listen if your feeling really sad because she has a tendency to make it not better. Enya just has that voice, like Kenny G has that instrument. Its just get to your soul..
