of my life is going to be the best of my life. I plan to see the beauty in every day and I will focus on my blessings rather than my shortcomings.

Life is just easier when you are happy stress can cause medical and physical concerns. "Our only limitations are those we set up in our own minds” Napoleon Hill The rest of my life is going to be the best of my life. I plan to see the beauty in every day and I will focus on my blessings rather than my shortcomings. I am aware that every day will not be great, but I have to have faith and believe that bad days and situations will always be temporary. Life is just easier when you a Resilience I come from a family that orginate from Uganda and the majortiy of my family are very resilient they came to the UK in the 1980's left everything they knew behind,their parents,family friends,customs etc even change of weather. They worked several jobs to make ends meat plus taise children and take care of their spouces also. My mother,aunts and uncles would always compare how tough their lives were back in Uganda compared to how easy me and my cousins lifes were in the UK. My point is over the last 10 years I think this is hevaily influenced by the media especially SOCIAL MEDIA which has changed the world dramtically. Today it seems that most people can not cipe with any time of dissapointment that life throws at them for example, is is the end of the world if: Loss of a job Body image issues Exam stress Financial stress Not want to be professionally Those are a few points that I have summed up, there are many more, however, all are related to societal pressure, having the perfect body, achieving the best grades, financial stress because you feel the need to keep up with the latest trends and sustain a lifestyle you are not able to. Social media often shows influencers and celebrities flossing their lavish lifestyles and unrealistic bodies (which are filtered). In the western world, there is too much vanity and the culture of ME ME, that is why people never seem to be happy as they place their worth on their physical appearance and material gain. I choose to be happy happiness is a PEACE of mind. Too much mental health/feelings talk? I believe so, I think at some point or another most people have struggled with their mental health and some more than others, however today I do believe there is too much mental health focus. People are supposed to go through ups and downs, not every situation has to be related to mental health. Although there are some genuinely experiencing mental health issues, I believe there are those who just use mental health symptoms language such as "I have social anxiety" etc over any situation, every other day words such "hit rock bottom" "I can't go on" has become very normalized. How about as a society we focus more on coping What are you thoughts?
