You’re Not Alone

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.

Happiness Isn’t a Given

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.

Your Life Doesn’t Suck, Your Attitude Does

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.

Let’s Get Real About Islam

Imagine a world where you have your life threatened at concerts. A world where you can’t enjoy a nice meal on a date at a restaurant. A time where you fear for your life by taking a simple stroll on the street as a pedestrian. This life of fear is the world that radical Islamist terrorists want us to live in.

The Justice System is Deficient

Every law-abiding citizen should have the right to live freely. Sadly, there are certain people on this planet who ruin it for the rest of us. I’m talking the worst of the worst…pedophiles, murderers, rapists and terrorists. They shouldn’t be put in prison, they should be sentenced to death.

Don’t Blame Others, Blame Yourself

We live in a world where insecurities get the best of us and because of this, we tend to develop negative habits to help us cope with the stresses of everyday life. We’re all addicted to something in one way or another. For some it’s music, for others it’s fitness and for many…it’s hurting themselves.

Gun-Free Zones Have Failed Us

No. Gun-free zones don’t reduce crimes committed with guns. It’s not like criminals walk into a place, notice a gun-free zone sign and a magical liberal force field blocks them from entering. They don’t follow the law to begin with, you seriously think a laughable sign saying guns aren’t allowed is going to stop them?
