If I had a world of my own everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't.

Untangling the knots in your broken psyche

When it comes to mental illness there is always a nature vs nurture debate. Are we born this way or are we a product of our own environment?

Though it's true certain illnesses can be caused due to low level of serotonin in our brains, our upbringing and the environment we've been exposed to plays a major role.

Stress is called the silent killer for a reason. This is why mental illness is a disease of the Western society. Stressors from everyday life are the root cause of causing people to loose their mind. From a young age we have it drilled into our brains that your worth is valued on how much your earn, what you wear, what you own and your social contacts. This forces people into a robotic, monotone, materialistic lifestyle.

You are not even given the chance to ask yourself who you are and what you want out of life because everything you do is to uphold the image society has created. Don't be fooled by the propaganda. Don't clip your wings and take the path that's expected not the path that you  want. Don't be a sheep, wake up from the matrix.

If you've had a messed up childhood you are already at a disadvantage because you have unresolved issues festering at the back of your mind as children do not know how to deal. This creates the human egg shell. Fragile and easy to break. Add everyday adulthood stress on top of unresolved childhood stress and it's only a matter of time before you crack into a million pieces.

People think they can fix you by throwing packs of legal pills at you, but why is a legal high any different from self medicating with alcohol and illegal highs? Just acts as a temporary band aid doesn't solve anything only feeds it.

What you need is insight into yourself to take a trip down memory lane, peeling back the layers and finding the root cause. Unlock what has been locked away for many years so that it no longer rules your present and blocks your future. The more you think you have control over something the more it has control over you.

Untangling the knots is the road to self healing and finding inner peace.

Disentangle my Mind

When I first started this blog it was meant to be a hobby, mainly for beauty, food, fashion and lifestyle. But whilst walking along the pathway to life I tripped and ended up falling down the rabbit hole.
Every time I tried to escape something would drag me back down to the bottom of the hole. The more I tried the harder it became. You loose all energy and motivation and hope. That ray of light that once shone bright gets duller and duller everyday until your world is filled with complete darkness. You are a prisoner trapped inside your own mind.

I did not find psychology, psychology found me. My descent into madness is probably what got me to study the world of Sigmund Freud. I wanted my own insight into the deep dark thinking's of my brain in order to disentangle it.

The mind is a powerful thing you see it has the potential to take a human to the darkest edge of humanity and back. But in order to understand what feeds the darkness we must peel back ever single layer and find the root.

So many people are suffering in silence because there is such a stigma attached when it comes to our mental health. The word 'Mental Illness' still has connotations with isolated asylums built on top of rocks in the middle of the sea, where the criminally insane are locked up in solitude and forced to undergo barbaric therapies like lobotomies.

Only recently mental illnesses were separated into different categories otherwise they all fell under the same category. It's still such a fragile subject.

Instead of seeking medical help people try to self medicate. Alcohol being the drug of choice. People would rather drink their problems away instead of solve them. The more you think you have something under control the more it controls you.

Just like any other organ in the body that can develop an illness why is it so impossible to accept the mind can get ill too. You wouldn't tell someone with a physical illness like a  broken leg to walk it off, so why tell someone with a mental illness to get over it?
