  • Iโ€™m going to be honest, social media is insanely toxic for me. I love it donโ€™t get me wrong, I love keeping in touch with so many beautiful souls around the world, but it is so easy to get consumed into comparing ourselves to others. During highschool I thought Iโ€™d finish my degree in 4-5 years, and thereโ€™s so many people my age who have already graduated! Because of my mental illness, I cannot take 4-5 classes at once because I know the stress will get to me and who knows when a depressive episode will come. Iโ€™ve always taken maximum 3 classes a semester. To graduate I never took a single semester off either. But Iโ€™m looking at finishing my degree late 2019 to early 2020 now. I sometimes feel so frustrated that I wasnโ€™t able to do it in the time frame I wanted because of my mental illness. It feels so disabling some days. Itโ€™s so easy to think that Iโ€™m doing well because I have high functioning depression and anxiety. Im always WAY ahead in my school work simply because Iโ€™m preparing Incase of a depressive episode. Iโ€™m great in that sense but my grades arenโ€™t even where I want it to be. I know grades arenโ€™t everything but seeing people do so well in school is heartbreaking. Of course Iโ€™m not doing horrible, but I know Iโ€™m so much smarter than school makes me feel. Point of this is try not to let social media get to you. Everyone is on a different path. Some finish school super early with great grades and some take a bit longer. Those of us who have a mental illness need to remember to be kind to ourselves. We are doing AMAZING. Yeah sure it impacts our performance in school, but our mental illness teaches us so much about life that school never will. Just remember, what is meant to be, will be. Be kind. Everything you have dreamed for will happen. We are human and thereโ€™s no time limit to get anything done within a certain amount of time. I hope this helps some of you feeling the same way. Even without a mental illness, life happens and you are doing great. As much as this is a reminder to you guys, itโ€™s a reminder to me as well. Just remember to take care of yourself in the process. Love you ๐Ÿ’•

  • QTNA SERIES | DO YOU STILL FOLLOW THIS ETHOS? ๐Ÿค”
.
Growing up, many of us were made to believe that the brighter our hair was in our protective styles, the more it would encourage growth because we were (still are) very much obsessed with length over the health of our hair.
.
I used to get annoyed growing up when my braids weren't tight thinking they'd fall off at night and getting sores around my hairline because of the pulling of my hair.
.
Do you still go by this ethos? Do you know someone that does? LeVe your comment and let's engage!
