Episode 54 - I Barely Made It Through (The 5 Health Buckets of Life)

Episode 54 - I Barely Made It Through (The 5 Health Buckets of Life)

December 14, 2021

Have you ever asked yourself, "How the heck am I still alive and breathing today?" I ask myself that almost every single day, especially after some recent chaotic events that have happened in my personal life lately. In this episode, I do my best to touch upon the "5 Health Buckets of Life" concept I've created and have been focusing on filling them up myself. Minimalizing my day-to-day to these 5 buckets has helped me push through a lot of mental noise and mental challenges that I face due to my own depression and anxiety. I hope that by sharing these with you, you write these buckets down for yourself and begin your journey of gaining confidence in the ability to fill your own buckets. You can do this. You are not alone when it comes to fighting the mental health stigma, depression, anxiety, or low self-esteem. I'm rooting for you. I'm rooting for us. Let's keep pushing forward DT Nation. 

None Of This Matters

None Of This Matters

October 19, 2021

Here is the audio from my 'Depression Talks YouTube Channel' video called, "None Of This Matters." I recorded and shared this video openly on my YouTube Channel, but I understand that there is a different audience here on this podcast. Thank you. Thank you so much for supporting me through all of this time. This has been a journey that has almost made me quit on Depression Talks and my own life so many times. But DT Nation, I am still here, still breathing, and I know I'm not alone in this crazy thing called life. Let's keep fighting and pushing forward one day, one second, one moment at a time! This wasn't an easy moment for me, but I made it through. If you would like to get more connected with me and my mission to change the mental health stigma, you can visit DepressionTalks.org

Episode 53 - Healthy Reasons To Still Want To Stay Alive

Episode 53 - Healthy Reasons To Still Want To Stay Alive

October 1, 2021

Many people share reasons to be alive or reasons to stay alive, and the majority of the time I would say... their advice may actually make things worse. In this episode, I share what I believe are 'healthy' reasons to want to stay alive. I believe they are healthy because they are all internal reasons (instead of most advice being external reasons from the individual who is feeling depressed). This mental fight to stay alive is not always easy, but it's still a fight. That means we can't give up. Winning is breathing to me. As long as we're breathing, we're still pushing forward with a purpose. Let's continue to push forward. We got this DT Nation. 

Episode 52 - I Am Always Tired

Episode 52 - I Am Always Tired

September 14, 2021

I'm exhausted. I just want to sleep right now. I keep on fighting this thing called "life", and it's annoying me. Even so, I keep on fighting. I won't give up. I refuse to. Depression and anxiety are a part of my life. It takes hard work to continue to healthily manage my mental health all the time. I'm tired of thinking about and having negative thought loops that play over and over again in my mind. In this episode, I open up about what I'm currently experiencing mentally and emotionally. I hope that by opening up to you, you see that you are not alone when it comes to fighting depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. DT Nation, let's keep on fighting and staying strong. We got this. 

Episode 51 - I Just Had An Emotional Breakdown

Episode 51 - I Just Had An Emotional Breakdown

May 13, 2021

I really did my best in this episode to try and explain complex thoughts I had to work through during my recent emotional breakdown. These weren't "normal tears" similar to other depressive episodes I've had in the past. This one hurt. There were no signs of sadness on my face. Just a stern and intense stare off into space while tears kept pouring out. 

 

If you have been a listener to this podcast, you know that when I have a mental breakthrough, I share that experience with you here. We are in this fight together when it comes to battling depression, anxiety, and low self-esteem. I promise you that you are not alone. If you are currently struggling with taking physical action in something, I hope that listening to this episode shifts your perspective into a positive for your health and growth. You got this.

I don’t like talking about this…

I don’t like talking about this…

April 21, 2021

I just uploaded this video to my YouTube channel "Depression Talks" titled "I don't like talking about this...". It's hard for me to talk during moments like this. I feel numb, empty, and trapped... like I'm in a dense fog not knowing my way out. I hope my "letting it out" helps you in some way. I don't know how, but I just hope it does. Depression and anxiety are real, and I'm not afraid to tell the world that.

Episode 50 - What’s wrong with being weird?

Episode 50 - What’s wrong with being weird?

April 6, 2021

My short answer, nothing. There is nothing wrong with being weird, awkward, or different. I didn't always feel this way. I actually struggled the majority of my life feeling like I was not good enough because I was weird. Every time I didn't fit in and was made fun of for being myself, my confidence, self-esteem, and mentality lowered dramatically. It felt impossible to love the person I looked at in the mirror. 

 

Now, I embrace my weirdness! I love how different I am from others. I don't mind being called weird or different because that makes me unique in my own way. I have no desire to be like anyone else. I'd rather be myself. In life, that's all I can be. Me.

 

If you are someone that feels like an outcast, you are not alone. Embrace what makes you different. Embrace being "weird". You are more than enough already being actual who you are. 

Episode 49 - What Is the Definition of Happiness?

Episode 49 - What Is the Definition of Happiness?

March 31, 2021

What is your definition of happiness? How would you choose to define it? In this episode, I share my thoughts and perspective on the word 'happiness', and how to feel it a little more every day. If you are someone that wants to increase your amount of daily "happy minutes" and hear a deeper insight into the feeling of happiness, this episode is for you. Keep on taking action towards better understanding your own thoughts and emotions (one of my suggestions is to set a time for 5 minutes and journal at least once a day). If you don't know where to begin, start by writing down your own definition of happiness. I'm rooting for you DT Nation! You are not alone.
