Love all, nothing less

Some of you remember one of the blogs posted not too long ago explaining why we're only human and all lives matter. This is similar and if listened to we can all live in a better society. We can all live to dream that this will come true. So, beyond this paragraph you can decide if you want to read further.

When looking at multiple news outlets, there are those standing up for equality for rights and fair treatment. There are still a lot of maltreatments and corruption going on out there in the world. But, how far is enough or too much? Well, that's a million dollar question, we may never actually know.

We should spread care, love and kindness to all. We should not hate, corrupt, and evil from the world. We're all human, there's no sub-humans. Yes, we're all different colors, have different religions, culture, sexual orientations, political ideas, and etc but that doesn't make us (humans) any less than one another. History happened so we would not hope to be repeated in future history.

Would there ever be a time when there is going to be a time of peace and no violence?

I ask you for simple thing.
Will you love the people around you? Will you help stop the stigmas and violence going on in the world? Can you help the world become equal for all those who reside in the world?

Remember to love one another and be kind to your neighbor.

Last leg of College life

So it’s that time of the year when you need to register for classes next semester. That one part of the same tradition of school. Classes.

I realized that right after taking that one summer course, I got one last semester. I remember registering for the capstone course and I was having that surreal moment. A lot of thoughts came to mind. Oh, this is the end. What am I going to do afterwards? Am I ready for the next step of adulthood? Dang it, I’m getting ready to graduate soon. Why? That soon? Oh my? Should I go on to grad school? Should I work to pay off student loans first before grad school? How far should I move away for work? When should I start applying for full time work? This is surreal right now? Oh, right!

It seems it is the last leg of college and the surreallness of it comes along with it. Adulthood, welcome! Time to prepare, kind of. I feel like I’m already there. Work, health stuff, other stuff, school and homework. 

Welcome to the last bit of college!

What is it like having sensory overload?

Sensors are your 5 senses; sight, taste, hearing, touch, and smell. Having these senses, we take for granted everyday. But, what if you are having a sensory-overload?

Sensory-overload is not the best feeling in the world from personal experience. You are probably wondering what causes sensory-overload? Which could be just about anything like a side effect of medication, symptoms of some disorders or illnesses, headaches, or numerous of other things.

In my experience, sensory-overload is not the best feeling in the world. I do have an invisible illness which could be a symptom that appears every so often. Usually, when there is an overload for me it is mostly effects the sensors of sight and hearing. Those sensors seems to be more ambient and bright, almost neon colors and more ambient sounds like the noises are coming through of what seems like a old-styled loudspeaker. If I am going through these sensory-overloads for a long period of time, I would feel like I would be on the verge of crying and being sick, body-overheating, and on the verge of a migraine or actually having a migraine. On occasion, if feel like I would want to pass out from it. Sometimes, I would cry just how bad it is. If I can’t tell if I am having an overload and would start to cry for no reason. Then, if I happen to get home, I would most likely want to sleep or get away from all the bright light and loud noises for the majority of the day or the remainder of the day.

Only a few people has ever seen me go through this sensory overload. It is like self-torture if a person is going through this, if it is dragged out for a long distance of time,at least for me it is. If it dragged out, it feels like my mind is making things want to go into emergency shut down mode and you trying to fight it until you are able to get away from it.

But, it is always good to figure out what exactly causes these symptoms are for you. It is different for everyone. So make sure you ask a medical professional first and hopefully, it’ll get under control or fixed.

Life is Strange

Life is strange, nothing is normal, it’s what I say. One moment could be perfectly fine, the next the tables have turned for the worse or unexpected. There may be a typical-person lifestyle/routine or circle of life type scenario but nothing exactly normal because everybody is not into the same things as each other and if they were would not the world be kind of boring. There is a saying that’s been going around for a while that goes something along the lines like there are a lot of people/characters that make the world turn. 

It could be that you may of got an unexpected answer or solution to a thing that has been going on for a while, could be something like a medical oddity,  unusual acts, mother nature being weird, and so on and so forth.

What’s it like living with high functioning anxiety?

High functioning anxiety is when you’re able to do things like a normal person except they express things a tad bit differently. Like being anal about things, insomniac, you’re sick about things, being busy can’t always be that much fun, you can’t reveal yourself exactly, NO doesn’t always exist, and everything seems like it’s all a trick.

But, what if it can be fixed? You can put back together, don’t stigmatize them for their situation, choice or cause of being that way, and to be don’t be rude, unkind, brush-off, don’t say something like “perk up butter cup things will get better soon” cause it will most likely make things 10x worse, help them recognize what types of problems that could factor into their situation, work on the problems as a team, don’t shove them into back the darkness that they were once in, and help them remind them of how they was once was and teach them how to recreate those feelings and memories of all the good times.

Yes, it’s a challenge to overcome. But how far are you willing to fix the problem or if you are going to be that somebody to fix that person.

Being Broken

Being broken could mean a variety of things. It could mean a relationship could have a small blimp or has gone wrong, you aren’t feeling up to par, anxiety, being single, finding Mr/Ms Right, stress, other stuff or a combination of sorts.

Well when it’s a combination of sorts, it can be tiring. For example a person may be looking for Mr Right, finishing up the last bit of college, job hunting/looking for job after graduation, fighting a invisible illness, slowly working on losing weight around scheduling shenanigans, expectations, and with other sorts of things that life brings along. After dealing with these different things for a decent amount of time, I just don’t exactly know what I want to do. I feel lost, alone, slightly numb, anxious, and a hince of not exactly knowing what to do in a lot of situations.

After those feelings are felt for numerous of years, you almost feel like a lost soul with no one to go on the adventure with. Loner you ask? Not always the case maybe if you do see someone who is supposedly shy or quiet, you should be like “hey, how’s things going?”, start a normal conversation, be a friend, be there, and help piece back the puzzles that were taken out. But, being supposed quiet or shy person isn’t always that way is that they’re used to not anyone being there or around.

Being there for a person who may be broken may want help, a friend, to open their space, want their own space, or needing someone to recognized them or being a part of the crowd.

If a broken person is speaking out. It’s best to listen, recognize what they’re saying, respond properly, offer help if necessary, be there for them, don’t be the one time helper or brush them off in anyway shape or form (it may take a lengthy process for the pieces to be put back together), don’t stigmatize them for their situation, choice or cause of being that way, and to be don’t be rude, unkind, brush-off, don’t say something like “perk up butter cup things will get better soon” cause it will most likely make things 10x worse, help them recognize what types of problems that could factor into their situation, work on the problems as a team, don’t shove them into back the darkness that they were once in, and help them remind them of how they was once was and teach them how to recreate those feelings and memories of all the good times.

Some people needs a medical professional (some people may not), spouse, significant other, family, friends, classmates, co-workers, acquaintances, or even a stranger.
