CategoryMental Health

Mental health is an important topic that gets swept under the rug far too often. People do not talk about these types of illnesses — or even their thought processes! — simply out of fear of being judged or misunderstood. It is totally understandable, but this needs to stop.

There will be LESS of a stigma surrounding these topics if more of us can find the courage to SHARE our struggles, insecurities, & hopes & dreams. So, Confidence & Chaos is tackling this issue, rather than waiting for someone else to jump.

Compromise or Cop Out?

C

I’ll warn you now, this will come across as a MAJOR pity party to many. .. . But, frankly, I do not care. I think it’s a natural progression of things & I have absolutely no reason to feel bad for it. (Frankly, they almost always wind up with a positive ending, anyway.) With that said, I am starting to think that maybe — just maybe — my goals are all kinds of wrong. . .

My Own Roadblock

M

A couple of mornings ago, I forced my fat ass onto my bicycle & down the walking/biking trail in our community. What a humbling experience! During that time, I passed a couple out walking. Then, when they caught up to me at my half-way point, they asked if I was okay — I must have looked MISERABLE! LOL. I just told them I am just out of shape & we all said, simultaneously...
