I don’t want to write this post as a writer, I want to write it as a friend.
Times are tough right now, and many people are going through them alone. Being isolated with your thoughts can turn into a dark place and believe me, I’m right there with you.
Together we can get through this. I wanted to share what I’ve been doing that you can too: writing.
It’s good for decluttering thoughts. Don’t even think about what you want to write, just write down whatever pops in your head. Once you write down what’s going on, throw it away. It’s a good way to drop bad thoughts.
I also like to write poetry to express how I’m feeling, but like I mentioned, it doesn’t have to be specific. Write whatever you’re feeling and trust me, you’ll feel better.
Another thing that helps is music. I recently saw a study that says listening to at least an hour of music everyday can improve your health.
Listening to songs that express different emotions such as sadness, anger and happiness are beneficial for your mental health. When no one else is there, trust me, music always has your back.
The important thing to remember is that:
It’s okay to not be okay.
Don’t be hard on yourself if you don’t do anything productive. We all need breaks to relax our minds and reset. Whether it’s by taking a nap, a calming bath, reading a book, or watching a show. Do what makes you happy, because your health is important.
You’re never alone. Plenty of people feel this way. Just remember that you are loved and cared for. I hope this helps you and makes you smile.
You made it through another day. It’s a small accomplishment. Be proud. Everything will be okay.
Polish death metal band, Decapitated were arrestedon September 9th for kidnapping charges, which inevitably turned into gang-rape accusations after a female fan visited their tour bus in Spokane, Washington.
You know what’s causing so many people to feel so depressed and miserable? Ironically, it’s this idea that everyone should be happy. As if happiness is something that everyone is entitled to. Life isn’t about feeling happy 24/7, it’s about living it. Life comes with a wide gambit of emotions, not just happiness. It’s a package, so deal with it.
The idea of sovereignty for Quebec has been present ever since the French were conquered by the British. Due to their distinct language and cultural difference from the rest of Canada, sovereignists have this romantic idea that Quebec should become its own standalone nation. Allow me to explain how the sovereignty movement has destroyed Quebec culture…
The mainstream media is filled with fake news. They are not the bringers of truth, they are the pushers of lies. They report on every single negative thing that someone from the right does, while failing to report the biases coming from their own side on the left. A good portion of heavy metal journalists are guilty of pushing this biased narrative as well.
The mainstream media is accusing Alt-RightWhite Nationalists for inciting violence and hatred at the ironically named “Unite The Right” rally in protest of the removal of Confederate General Robert E. Lee’s Memorial Statue in Charlottesville,Virginia.
For those who are unaware, we are literally being taxed one cent per sip in Cook County thanks to crazy leftists who have been running this city to the ground for decades. It’s all for the good of mankind and preventing people from having unhealthy eating habits. Just kidding, it’s just another case of government robbing its citizens of more money.
The principal ideology of punk is based on freedom and liberation. It’s supposed to be about a community of people that don’t want government telling them how to live their lives. Ironically, punk bands of today fight for politicians to have even more control over people.
Rock ‘n’ roll used to be about empowerment and having a good time. It made people feel alive and free. It was uplifting and feel good. Then somewhere down the line, rock music took a tortured turn that’s been bitter-sweet. We got incredible music out of the changes, but we’ve also lost plenty of brilliant souls because of it too.
