Sharing a part of me with you is my medicine.

Sharing a part of me with you is my medicine.It's better than pushing myself to oblivion. There's no meaning when you don't care.So I write my purpose over and over with despair.Everything I was comfortable with is spinning out of sight.Maybe this is my last fight. - Poem, Positive Masters, Jon Riki Karamatsu, 6/27/2020 -I dedicate this poem to you if you're feeling anxious or depressed or are helping a loved one who is.

Don't blow things up out of proportion or minimize them.

Cognitive Distortions - Part 6 Don't blow things up out of proportion or minimize them. When you fail, don't exaggerate your errors and imperfections. Don't blow them up way out of proportion because doing so will cause you unnecessary grief. Everyone makes mistakes. Failure plays a huge role in your learning process; however, you may fear it as you get older. Constantly remind yourself that failure is part of your growth.

You're frustrated with the bad things in the universe; yet, you greatly appreciate the good. If you're feeling this, I understand. I go through these periods too.

If I don't find you in my lifetime, I will find you in my dreams.

If I don't find you in my lifetime, I will find you in my dreams. ❤️⁠⁠Romantic love is one of those things that happens naturally. If you experience it, consider yourself very fortunate. There are those who never experience it in their lifetime. Some try to force it. ⁠⁠For me, romantic love is so powerful that the world can be crashing all around me but the feelings for the one I love somehow makes me believe that everything will be alright. Even if I never fall in love again, I'm extremely grateful for being able to experience it.⁠⁠In my two unpublished novels, I created a love story as part of the bigger story filled with suspense, action, and history. I...
