Suicide has been one of the major issues going on today. It is as if more and more people are resorting to suicide because they feel like the world will be a better place without them. That is far from the truth and unfortunately some never had the chance to realize how important their life really was. The numbers for suicide are only going up, especially around the holidays. Even though the holidays are now over, that doesn’t mean the numbers will decrease.
Social media has always been the go to place to escape from the world or to make your mark on the world. It's used to build up businesses and unfortunately sometimes used to discourage one another simply yourself. I want to touch on how social media goes hand in hand with identity crisis.
I can't think of a better example than to use the television show, Catfish.
Throughout our "Identity" series, we've touched on a lot of different topics which should stir up different questions about self-awareness and our mental and emotional state as individuals. Usually when discussing topics such as mental health and highlighting issues like depression and anxiety, we tend to miss the overall "big picture". Even though we have learned a lot about these topics within the past couple of months (if you missed out, make sure you check out our previous blog posts!), one thing we cannot neglect the main idea of this entire series: how these issues affect us on both an individual and community-based scale when ignored or overlooked. When we don't discuss what is going on around us or within...
Throughout the month of October, we have further introduced and analyzed the notion of denial. At the start of the month, were able to define and give examples of what denial is and how it affects the average individual, through discussing the causes, signs and symptoms that come along with it.
Over time, we were able to really dissect the term a bit, however it is important to bring to light some thoughts regarding denial and how it relates to everyone as a whole, not just individually. With that, it's best that we dig a little deeper into addressing the important factors of denial.
A lot of times when people take a platform to testify or speak of all the things that God has done in their lives, they often speak of all the ways that the process and end result has benefited them. However, as powerful as the testimony is sometimes, people still rarely mention a key factor: how this blessing they’ve received can be used to benefit the next person. This is to say that, although we are encouraged to embrace every breakthrough and victory that God allows us to experience, it is also important to remember that we are blessed to be a blessing. We tend to overlook the fact that our fortune and abundance is not for us to keep;...
Have you ever felt alone? Do you feel like God has forgotten about you? We all have faced this to some extent. At that point, we just want the feeling to go away but often times it comes back. Whether you are going through a change in your life that causes you to be alone or the daily hardships just remember that God’s word provides strength and hope in our moment of sadness and weakness. Even at your loneliest point God is there, his unconditional love surrounds us. Here are 4 verses that will reassure you that you are not alone: “So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God....
What is purpose? Do I have one? What is the meaning of life? Many people often try to find the answers to these questions from different avenues such as religion or science. Yet are left with the thought of . . . does life even have a meaning or purpose to it? Ralph Waldo Emerson a poet from the 1800 once said that “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” A good majority of people spend the majority of their lives trying to figure out our purpose on this earth. Some of us end...
In the book of Genesis, we see that everything in this world was spoken into existence except us. We were the ONLY ones that God created with His bare hands. So this fingerprint is a daily reminder to be who God created you to be. It’s in your DNA.
