Re: Introduce yrself here August 2013!

Well I'm certainly not new, but I'm gonna hang out with all of you awesome newbies anyway Smiley Very Happy

 

1. What are you grateful for?

I'm grateful for many things, big and small - the opportunities I have, the people I have around me, that I've been born into a country that has so many things others take for granted.

 

2. How'd you find us?

A few years ago when I was searching for stuff on anxiety/depression

 

3. What's the last thing you did really well?

Motivate myself to go to school this morning Smiley Happy

 

4. Indoors or outdoors?

Definitely outdoors. I really dislike winter and therefore being stuck inside.

 

 

5. Number one tip for feeling good?

Surround yourself with supportive and uplifting people Smiley Happy

Re: Introduce yrself here August 2013!

Nice to learn a bit about you all.

 

1. What are you grateful for?

I'm grateful for a lot of things: being born in this country, having all these opportunities, not having to worry about money as much as some people, having a fantastic brother, being at university and having an amazing best friend.

Much like others - searching Google on the internet. Smiley Tongue 

 

3. What's the last thing you did really well?

I've been able to take my mind of the stresses of this week really well. I've gotten better at handling pressures from things that happen unexpectedly.

 

4. Indoors or outdoors?

Outdoors on a warm day; indoors on a cold day.

 

5. Number one tip for feeling good?

Find the funny / amusing side of a difficult situation and then laugh at it. Smiley Wink

@MAJORminor - I like your #5. I struggle to look in the mirror sometimes because I don't like what I see. Though your tip is a good one. I should try it out!

Re: Introduce yrself here August 2013!

I found this tip helpful, it made me feel like I'm not worthless and I am actually kinda cool!

 

My oldest brother taught me this tip on a trip to the movies, ironically we were watching Doctor Who at the movies (So awesome!!).

 

He said to me, "How can you accept that the world is a good place, when you can't accept that you're a good person?".

 

Ever since that day, I've been much more positive about myself and the world around me!!

 

Feel free to use this every day, it does help!!

Re: Introduce yrself here August 2013!

Nice one MAJORminor! Really cool that thinking about the world and yourself in that way has helped you with your awesome posi attitude! Love to have that kind of vibe around here!

2. How'd you find us?

Well, I found you guys ages ago, I'm a YA and I used to be active on the previous forums a fair bit.. I have just been to lazy to create an account on this one Smiley Tongue Sorry guys haha But I believe I found out about you guys while I was having a bit of a tough time, I was doing an assignment for school and I found the website. Thought maybe it would help me out with my own troubles (and not just doing well on an assignment Smiley Tongue)

5. Number one tip for feeling good?


The only person you truely have to live with for the rest of your life is YOU, most people will come in and out of your life which is normal- so don't allow those people to change who you are to suit them.  Also, you can never smile/laugh enough watch more comedys!
