Despite Mental Health Challenges, You Can Thrive Now!

Mental health challenges—stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, and more—sometimes stop us in our tracks, making us feel overwhelmed and underprepared to deal with life. We promise ourselves that when we feel better, we can get back into life. However, it is possible to thrive now, in spite of mental health challenges.

While seeking mental health treatment is important, you don't have to wait until you're free of mental health difficulties in order to thrive and live a life worth living. These tips can help you take charge of your life right now:

Think like a solution-focused therapist and use the miracle question: if you woke up one morning and, miraculously, all of your problems were gone, what would your life be like? Know what you want, and take steps each day to get there.
Dedicate every day to something meaningful to you. Living for a greater purpose can make it easier to get up and keep going.
Live from your strengths. You are not your illness. You have a wealth of strengths to offer yourself and those around you. Do more of what you do well.
Discovering who you are, what you're good at, what you want in life, and acting in meaningful ways won't erase problems. They will, though, help you thrive now.

Hi, if you don't mind if i share thought to you guys? Im reading a Theories of Personality book by Feists and Roberts and i'm on Rollo May's theory. As the picture shown below, does anyone can tell me why the existential theory/ies included in T.O.P. while constrastly, existentialists were antitheoretical? Thanks for the future answers and opinions, such a great help! Good day to all.

Few days ago, in a routine discussion-cum-argument with my dad, he ended the conversation by saying,"It's in our blood to make that kind of mistakes. You'll make that too." I was so pushed back and when I kept on thinking, I realized that he might be right after all. So many times we all have heard this.

What are the things you find difficult to say "No" to? Can we start from there - if you don't mind?

The ultimate goal. Embrace it and you have e...

Because war is tribalistic and tends to deplete our species of its most virile individuals, do you consider it to be an evolutionary error akin to whale beachings?

I think our intelligence is the error. War just determines the survival of the fittest but intelligence has allowed the unfit to live on

The start of anything worthwhile is the hardest bit. Once you get yourself going, the momentum suddenly starts to kick in. 
Once you get yourself going, the momentum suddenly starts to kick in. The other part of your brain – the part that wants to improve – takes over and keeps you going.

I'm not use to smoke, but three months ago I started... This activity has a relation with stress or something? How this little "piece of death" helps to kill time and, in some way, to have a good time with people you don't care?

I smoked for 27 years tried everything on the market, but none of it worked, until last year i said enough is enough and I quit cold turkey, so i wont say it was easy but i managed it. The moral of this is you wont quit until you really want to, strees is not a reason just an excuse to start.

A 14 year old boy steals a vehicle with his 12 year old girlfriend, then totals the car and the girl dies in the crash: Q: Do we throw the book at this “risky-behavioral-type teen” and make him pay to the fullest extent of the law, or do we give the case some leniency as an ill-fated-accident by a “troubled child” and perhaps implement different modalities of corrections?

What are your thoughts?  Pls chime in--thanks.

We are often confident and optimistic, but oh my word, how often we get it wrong!!! :)

Can you think of any other ways language is used to manipulate and control our mindset?
The purpose of language is to communicate. However, this communication can easily turn into manipulation. Could Orwell have predicted the future?

Language is primarily a medium of communication. However, level of intelligence, exposure, experience, and ego are basic Innate materials that could swing the level of vulnerability in understanding and subjection. The party that is able to manipulate the connotations of words to suit a line of thought against the backdrop of people's desire for certain clarifications holds the key of manipulation. He succeeds due to the connotative values of words.

Breaking up with a boyfriend or girlfriend can be a very difficult time in a teenager's life. Often, relationships have multiple meanings to adolescents. Not only do relationships signify love and trust in another person, but there are also other factors at play including emotional security and self-esteem. School Social Workers and School Counselors deal with teen breakups on a regular basis.
