Support my mental health?
Hm, its easy, i'm try to avoid the meme or funny sections... :D

No, actually i like them :)

Most of the people think, the mental health is some strange magic. Isnt. If you USE your brain, and think, and you make a decisions, pros-cons, with based on facts, this can help you to be health mentally. This can help to recognize the reality.

If you let the control to the "autopilot", the manipulated and subjective subconscious, is not the best choice...


We'd love you to write about this in detail! Mental health seems really easy to control for some, but it's almost insurmountable for others. That's why we're hoping to get more knowledge about it on the blockchain!


My english is too poor for this hard psychology/philosphy conversation, but i try my best :D

I think, the controll is easy for everyone, but make a decision, to choose the control and reality, that is hard.
I always try to recognize the facts, and the different between facts and opinions. Today, living with opinions is very common, and convenient. Most of the people think, their informations are facts, but no, their "informations" are opinions, after subjective judge of the reality.

Its good, because we can blame the others. The government, the politicians, the banksters, our parents, our boss, our teacher. They did it, im just a wictim, its not my fault...

And the fact, it is often true, its not our fault. But the reality, the universe, the gods, the fate doesnt care about it. You have to care about it. And first step: recognize the facts, and the person, who is responsible for this. And mostly we are this person... Pretty hard, isnt? Always be someone, who responsible for our situation. Things don't just happen. If yes, that call we tornado, or earthquake, or some other natural stuff :D

So its pretty hard to accept, our situation is our responsibility, and we have to work for it.

If you accept this, the hard part, take back the control is easy.


I think your English is just fine to get your point across! You could do a wonderful dual language response with photos and we'd absolutely support your efforts.

Woohoo!! I love these...

OK, working on mine now. What to do, what to do....???..... 🤔

This sounds like a good initiative and I am curious what writing comes out of it. I don't feel that I am qualified to participate, though, because I am merely coping with anxiety, not thriving with it. But, I will try to remember to peek at the entries once they arrive and see what I can learn!

Thanks to @metametheus for mentioning this in the PYPT podcast on the SteemitRamble discord server!

A subject close to my heart, will definitely enter :)
