Comeback is Real – BetterHelp.Com and Getting Back to Blogging

Fabulous day to everyone.

As you can see, this would be my first post since August of 2016. So, I have been inactive for over a year now. A lot has happened to me since my last post, both positive and negative things. I stopped studying, got a job, saved a few bucks, went into a relationship, switched residential address and more importantly I diminished my anxieties among other things. My anxiety was the very foundation of this blog. This was my release.

Now almost 2 year later since Dysthymia Arrhythmia, I’m getting my hands back to wipe off the dust in Of Minds & Music. Sure, I have lost all momentum that I built back then. I might have a hard time gaining back the thousands of views I got in 2016, but that was never the point of this blog anyways. The views did however, made me feel like someone out there was listening; that people were listening. And I’m very thankful for everyone who gave this blog a glimpse.

Anyways, enough of the drama. I just want to tell you why I’m back in blogging. It’s not just due to my anxiety anymore. Although, it still exists, but it’s manageable. Probably just due to the day-to-day stress. The main reason I’m back to this site is because of BetterHelp.Com. One of the admins from BetterHelp contacted me through email starting last December. Unexpectedly, they stumbled across this blog and liked what they see. They told me I’ve portrayed anxiety, depression and mental illness in an interesting way, which was really flattering. Anyways, I’m gonna post more about BetterHelp.com on my next post here. If you’re wondering what their site is about, they’re one of the largest counseling platform. If you need help or know anyone who does, go check them out.

The second reason, I’m back is because I started a new blog. I created another wordpress site that is about food and travel. Having a job has its perks and over the past year, I have consistently been to places (mostly restaurants and beaches) together with my girlfriend. She encouraged me to start a new blog since I have some spare time and to put our exploits to some use. So just days ago I launched Chew and Wander. It’s not much yet. It’s still on the rise and most probably, the ones who would find the blog beneficial would just be audiences in the Philippines; but if you’re from elsewhere you enjoy looking at unfamiliar territories and food pics you might want to give my new blog a view.

So there you have it. Here’s to a radiant new beginning. I’ll be posting some new poems in the next following day. I’m hoping for your continued patronage. I wasn’t really under the assumption that you’d care for this, but since you’ve been reading up to this point, then I’m kind of thinking now that you do. Because of that, I sincerely thank you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you good luck with your endeavors.

If you yourself have a blog, feel free to comment your blog down below and me and my friends will make sure to check it out.

Peace!

A Maiden’s Affliction

image

Her high-pitched scream reaches my ears,
And every bone in my body shivers
She made a home inside my head
So I’ll write her every whisper

Her black lipstick matches the color of her heart
Like the effervescent still waters
Stitches in her skin are like art
And the scars were finishing touches

She eats makeup just to stay skinny
And puts laxatives in her face
She’ll pull the trigger anytime
But she’d rather just sit and wait

The tips of her nails, she bites and chews
But she barely touches her food
She has friends in her front
But none on her rear, just knives already glued

Wrapped around her neck the constricts of society,
and a weight left on her shoulder
For every dream she had, and every man who broke her heart
a bruise left as reminder

Tongues like daggers everywhere
and eyes like laser beams
She can’t go out without an armor
A figure to talk to and a box to dwell
is all she really clamors

-The DementED

Cheers to all the ladies going through the woes brought about by society. You’re beautiful. Please live on. 🙂
