The benefits of meditation are almost unlimited. Not only does it reduce immediate stress and anxiety, but can in the long term, have a hugely positive impact on your clarity, mindset and both physical and mental health. If you're new to the world of meditation, it can feel a little overwhelming and difficult knowing where to start! We've taken the guesswork out of it and created a series of short 5-6 minute guided meditations. Our initial meditations are centred around:
I sit at my friends house rn, smoking a cigarette, nursing a glass of whiskey, and feeling sorry for myself, I've tried to stop. It doesn't work. My friend does the same, she understand what I'm going through. I act as if I'm not affected while I'm at home. They don't question the smoke stench, they think my friend's mom smokes, they don't know it's me. They want to know why my coats have burns on them, they don't know its from a cigarette I was smoking. They tell me to stop ruining my coats bec

This forum. Is. Confusing.
Wtf is a "digital mentor", why can't I make status updates, why does this site default to dark mode (🤢), and why is this site so cluttered?
Idk man. So cluttered. Too many pictures everywhere, but hey, at least there's a forum for just about everything here.
I wish there was a Chatterbox or Arcade tho. I love AVEN arcade and The Chatterbox. Good stuff
I feel like I'm barely crawling.
I feel empty.
I feel like my spirit is too big for my body.
I feel hate.
I feel love.
I feel, I have feelings, not many people know.
I feel hated.
I feel out of place.
I feel gone.
I feel like life doesn't matter.
I feel that we're only born to die.
I feel like a shell, my body is a shell, a transportation device for my real soul.
I feel punished because I was made a girl.
I feel pushed back.
Allright, here is part 2
Chapter 2: Moving Day
“Is that everything loaded into the van?” my adoptive mother asks.
“I believe so, let me just double check every room really quick.” I reply.
It is moving day, at long last. We are finally selling up and getting a bigger house because the 3-bedroom house we currently live in is too small for a growing teen such as myself.
“I’ll meet you there, I just want to go to and say goodbye to some of my friends fi
Running from telling my parents.
Running from the truth.
Running from love.
Running from hate.
Running from support.
Running from bullies.
Running from life.
Running from death.
Running from the darkness.
Running from mistakes.
Running is a way to cope for some people. Running is a trap for others. For me, running is a terrifying joy I feel that if i run long enough I will end up at the end. The end of the world, the end of time, the end of life.
Happy Halloween, everyone! How are you today?
I love Halloween, since I get to dress up and walk around town with my sister while we trick-or-treat. For the past couple of years, I've been doing an abstract sort of costume, with each one of the 'elements.' The first one I did was shadow. then fire, then wind, and this year I'm going as earth. I have a black dress-cloak-thing that I've covered in flowers, and ghillie suit pants and jacket. I've also covered the jacket with flowers. I have a
This summer (3-4 months ago) I had a girlfriend. I thought things were going well. It was my first relationship so I didn't really know what "normal" was. I quickly found out that being in the bathroom kissing someone who wouldn't tell me their name was NOT a relationship. Whenever I asked her what her name was or if we could go somewhere else outside of the bathroom she would say no or pull my hair (it quickly escalated). I was left feeling confused always thinking what did I do wrong, even tho
*Buzz, buzz, buzz* “Oliver, how unexpected of you unless you found something in my old room.” I say to him.
“Well, I haven’t found anything, I just wanted to see what you are doing this weekend.” He says to me.
“I don’t think so, why?” I ask extremely curious.
“Well, I was wondering if I could take you out for the day, and maybe take you for dinner as well.” he says to me.
“Wait, so are you asking me out on a date?” I quiz him.
National Black Cat day is October 27. Today I was at the library and saw a sign that October 27 is National Black Cat Day. I didn't even know that existed, but it's pretty cool! Did you know that on average, black cats take about a week longer than other cats to get adopted? In Celtic mythology, fairies are thought to take the form of black cats. A long time ago, sailors took black cats on board their ships for good luck. Actually there are way more myths about black cats and
It is not a good idea to put body wash in your ears. It seemed like a good idea, because I was in the shower and needed to wash my ears, but it took forever to get it out. Eventually I just poured water into my ears until it all flowed out.
Well, at least I got to laugh at myself! 😁
What is Dewdrop's Daily Life Lessons (DDLL)?
We all have something to learn from life, so every so often I'll post something I've learned that day! It may be silly or serious, informal or educational, relevant or totally not. I hope you learn something from this!
TW WARNING: harsh vocabulary, mentions of sexual content, cursing
After that time I realized how short of invincibility I had and how much I actually had compared to what I thought I did. After July the seventeenth, two-thousand twenty-two I was no longer Bela. I was no longer Babbs, Bel, or even Yzzi. After that, I was Ysabel, a girl that none have met but all were afraid of. Ysabel was the name I wrote officially as the name on my homework, it was the signature I signed on papers
I am taking a break from dtl until monday. You peeps are all amazing and it is not because of you that I am taking this break I just need to connect with myself over the weekend! I am trying to really focus on my mental health so you will probably not hear from me until the 8th of Oct.
Love yinz (you all)
@Jong will also be taking a break too with me
Okay, so I have finally finished up the first complete rough draft, but I dont know what to name the play! 😅 It ended up being about 15 pages long (so, shorter than I thought, which means I didn't overwrite- yay! 🥰) The basic storyline is- Billie has an invisible friend named Niko. (fun fact, Niko means Nobody in Bosnian (shout out to Google translate, lol) which was the character's original name) As Billie grows up, he forgets how to see Niko, but Niko stays with him, because they can tell he s
