  • Growing up I was the same way. I wanted to be my own person and not be told what to do. I’ve always wanted to be a leader and advocate for others and myself. Being able to lead and have those skills is something you should learn growing up because there are times throughout life where you are going to have to lead whether it be by yourself or with…Read More

  • Nyalok commented on the post, My Strong and Weak Points

    I can relate to you because as you do I get lost in space all the time. When I’m having a conversation with someone my mind wanders farther out and the only thing I can say is “yeah” or “oh for real?”. As it is a weakness for you it is a weakness for me.
    I’ve started to make conversations with people and avoid distractions. When I notice myself…Read More

    Tattoos On The Heart

    Before reading this book I was skeptical about how I would be drawn to this book. It didn’t seem like a book I’d be interested in nor be taken to it. As I got to read the book it...

    • I could not agree more with how much positivity it brings into your life. It is all too true. Father Boyle did so many amazing things with Homeboy industries. I also agree with you in that I wasn’t sure how interested I was going to be in this book yet after reading it again you see how much it touches you. Again I could not agree more with you.

    • Dear Nyalok, I am delighted by your post, Tattoos on the Heart since you have a great way with words and inspiring others to read this book. Relating it to your own life gave it the right emotion needed to sway a reader towards a type of literature.
      One sentence that you wrote that stood out to me was, “He gave them the choice of wanting to be helped and when they take that chance it helps me think on how I want to help people. From the start of elementary school I have always enjoyed helping people and that’s what I have always done and continue to do.” because I was able to relate to it since, I too, want to help others and believe becoming a teacher would be the right career path for me since I have always loved being there at the guidance of children.
      Thank you for your writing, I look forward to seeing what you write next because you have an amazing way with your words. Thank you for your time and effort into this.

    • I would second this. The novel not only portrays a new reality but connects us to it. The novel is profound because it makes us realize that there is no shame in being different or holding a past. It is a matter of moving forward and being the change we want to see in the world.

    • I like this book too. It is probably one of my favorite books from theology class. It gives a world from a different perspective and some fascinating stories. Besides, all the divine interpretations behind each story, all of the stories reflect that human nature is good. Former gang members and rivals could get along and give empathy to each other, which is pretty cool.

    As being an athlete I agree with that because it’s something I do myself. Things I do I see it as normal so whenever it’s something that deserves a celebration in any sort of way I then don’t see that worthiness on doing so. It has affected my mental health because yes I am not loving myself and congratulating myself in the way I normally should I…Read More

    • I actually just had a coaching session on the importance of self-validation as it relates to mental health. Often, we see the things we do as normal and not worthy of praise so when it comes time to actually celebrating our wins, we don’t necessarily see the point in doing so. This affects our mental health because we are not loving ourselves in the way that we should be.

It has affected my mental health because yes I am not loving myself and congratulating myself in the way I normally should I keep the mindset of an ‘everyday thing’ like it’s something I do all the time why does it need to be praised.
