One More Light

I don't normally talk about these kinds of things but after what has happened with Chester and now Jonghyun, I feel I need to say something. Suicide is not the answer. Never. If you're feeling down and think there's nothing happy left to live for, you're wrong. If you have depression, seek help. Talk to someone, anyone and if you can't talk to anyone, there are hotlines for you. People there 24/7 that will talk to you, help you see why ending your life isn't worth it. If you need medication, don't be ashamed of it. 

Mental health is still treated as something taboo or something we make up in our own minds. Some people think it's something we just need to get over. Why on Earth can't we treat mental health the way we treat our physical health? I mean, when we get the flu, we go to the doctor, why don't we treat mental health the same way? 

 1-800-273-8255 - suicide hotline USA (International numbers)

Don't let your light go out. Your life matters.  

I've been there, it was just after my first panic attack when I was 17, I didn't understand what was going on. After it ended, I wanted to kill myself so I would never have to deal with that again. I didn't think I could handle anymore of those.

I've had other dark times in my life. So I can understand wanting to stop the pain, not knowing that it can get better. All you have to do is don't give up. Never stop fighting and get the help you need. 

We need to stop the stigma around mental health so people won't be ashamed of seeking the help they need. No one ever worries what other people will think when they break a bone and have to go the doctor. 

Don't throw away your life.

(Pride) Book Review - Sagittarius Saves Libra

True love is on the horizon, Sagittarius. It’s a good time to step out of your routine and into the unknown. Jason Lyall wants someone to come home to, someone he can be his most ridiculous self with. Someone who loves him regardless. But no matter how hard he tries, he can never quite make that connection, and now his last girlfriend has moved on—she’s engaged. So when his identical twin begs him to swap lives for a few weeks, Jason can see the appeal. Suddenly he’s living another life in a tiny Australian town, contending with weird, wild, and wonderful things the likes of which he’s never encountered before. Like spiders. Like snakes. Like his new neighbour, Sergeant Owen Stirling, who is all kinds of . . . suspicious. Prepare to be caught in a merry mix-up, Libra. It’s a dance of side-stepping and seduction. Book Breakdown I did not know this was coming! When I woke up on June 1st and saw an email from Amazon saying the author dropped a new book in this series... I lost it! I hones

Music Monday - Recent Plays

This fun meme is hosted over at Always Me   I listened to a lot of music over this past week because I've been on fall break. It's been pretty good minus all the tornadoes and bad weather, but today the high was only around 70! That's amazing for this part of Oklahoma.  The music I've been vibing to is darker sounding songs since it's so close to Halloween! This year my partner and I are gonna crave pumpkins that always and then I'm gonna go with a friend on a train ride. She said she's done it before and it's fun. I'm hoping she'd right!  But for now, to the songs! Sooooooo what did you think? Let me know below and have a great week! Stay safe, wear a mask, and happy reading! 

Bisexual Erasure (Pride Month)

Happy Pride! Since today is bisexual day, I wanted to talk about something important to me. I hope you'll listen with open ears, mind, and heart. Thank you.  I’ve seen this happening for years now. People will say things like, “it’s a phase” or “pick a side.” I’ve even seen some say that bisexual people only like cisgender men and women and exclude all other genders. Which isn’t always the case. Sure, some bisexual people feel that way, which is why pansexual and other names came into play. But at its core, being bisexual just means that you’re attracted to more than just one gender.  I’ve never hidden on this blog the fact that I’m bisexual but I rarely talk about the struggles I feel because it just never felt right when you have gay people that have to hide their complete selves for fear of what the world could do to them.  Or trans people who spend every day trapped in the wrong body and can’t tell anyone to get the things they need to be their truth selves.  Put against issues
