It’s National Coming Out Day Today!

Hello! For those of you who aren’t aware, today is National Coming Out Day. I want to take some time out of my rough (even though it hasn’t been that bad of a day) day to express my thoughts on today. Today can mean a lot to different people. I’m sure for some it’s irrelevant… The post It’s National Coming Out Day Today! appeared first on BayArt.

Social Media: Today’s Modern Enemy

We live in a modern society where technology surrounds us every second of the day. Our cell phones remain in our hands throughout the day, sit next to our beds at night, and most kids these days don’t know what to do without the phone in their hands. Video games have replaced going outside, and social… The post Social Media: Today’s Modern Enemy appeared first on BayArt.

The Stigma Around the Dark Side of Mental Health

Today I want to talk about something important, but is often discussed in a negative way. It’s something people who do not experience it often don’t understand. Those who do experience it are often put down, harassed, and bullied. I want to talk about self-harm. Like all mental health issues, self-harm is a stigma that…

Book Review of Wonder Woman: Warbringer

Hey everyone. I’m gonna take a step back from mental health to talk about this book I just finished reading called Wonder Woman: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo. I promise I will not spoil it. When I first realized there was a Wonder Woman book being published, I was so excited. I found a copy from Amazon, and… The post Book Review of Wonder Woman: Warbringer appeared first on BayArt.

The Depression Arch: 1 Dangerous Ride

Something that came up during a conversation on Twitter really made me stop and think…do people who suffer with chronic depression ever truly experience stabilization in their moods? A stabilization that lasts longer than a couple days, weeks, months? Maybe a year or two? It varies with different people because everyone is different. No one… The post The Depression Arch: 1 Dangerous Ride appeared first on BayArt.

Depression: WWIII or Tug-a-War?

As many people with depression know, living with it is tricky. You can have good days and bad days. For me, sometimes it could go on for weeks or months before I find relief from the depression. It’s always about managing it, learning to enjoy the small happy moments, and trying to remember you’re worth… The post Depression: WWIII or Tug-a-War? appeared first on BayArt.

The Power of Sharing your Vulnerability with Others

I had a completely different blog post in mind when I sat down yesterday to hand write my post out before a tea date. I wanted to share other things with you, but I was pleasantly surprised last night when I turned on my laptop to discover a video that someone I admire posted online.… The post The Power of Sharing your Vulnerability with Others appeared first on BayArt.
