Welcome and a big thank you to everyone who stops by and says hello.
I have not posted for a while now as my poor computer suffered a virus and had to do a short stint with the doctor and then spend some time in the computer hospital.
I have tried to stay up beat and checked on him every day. Sorry for the corny humour but as my grandmother always said to me ” if you don’t smile and try to find the funny side you will cry and leave yourself vulnerable to misery.”
When I was a child I never really understood what my gran meant by that statement and I never had the chance to ask her before she passed on from this world.
Today when I think on this I realize that she was talking about your state of mind, your mental health and have realised just how wise Nan was.
When you open a newspaper, turn on the television and jump on a computer on-line you will notice if you look all the advertisements health pages and news stories on depression or our mental health and just how important our mental health is in our everyday ability to socialize in and function in the work place, relationships and society in general.
.Some of the information is so generalised that one could start to perceive that they have a level of depression. So what can we do well not being an expert I don’t have answers fo you but I do know what I do. I REMEMBER MY GRANDMOTHER AND HER WORDS OF WISDOM.
IF YOU DON’T SMILE AND TRY TO FIND THE FUNNY SIDE YOU WILL CRY AND LEAVE YOURSELF VULNERABLE TO MISERY.
This is what I think has happened to all the internet trolls that prowl the internet looking to attack anything positive motivational inspiring and happy. I have had some visit my site and you know, I really feel sorry for these people that they were not as Lucky as me and had a wise grandmother like me, it must be so tiring to be so negative and lonely that the only contact you have is by attacking total strangers on the internet so sad.
So if you are feeling a bit down and a little confused and your blog, website or business on-line is being bombarded by trolls don’t read their comments as personal, don’t read the comments at all and install a good quality plugin like I have so their posts will only show on your side, then you clear them. WordPress has a spam filter and I totally encourage everyone to use one as I feel by displaying the negative troll comments you are doing these people and their mental health a great disservice. I believe by allowing trolls negative comments to feature on your own personal site you are just fueling their mental health problems by letting them think you give a damn. If you are experiencing any or all of the above symptoms please reach out and contact your doctor or a mental health professional in your country.
What is Despair well a short version from the dictionary explains it like this.
To lose all hope or confidence
So why do we allow things that are out of our control to chip away at our mental health leaving us feeling despair well I just chalk it up to human nature and the fact that we feel we need the approval of others to be totally satisfied.
Now if you have been reading my other posts you will see that I too in my journey of life suffered from the same syndrome as everyone has which led me to a pretty dark place however as I have grown within myself I learnt to get to know me who am I and where do I want to go in life. Want to know a SECRET I started to like myself and enjoyed doing things learning new things and started to become more positive within myself and gee it feels great. So let go of DESPAIR you don’t need it and there really are some lovely people out there.
Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you have gained some wealth from my blog. Have a great day and inspire yourself so you can inspire others
