"Life is beautiful, and life is brutal. Life is brutiful."

Truer words were never spoken.

Автор SeinoPie Gracia ( назад)
When I was young, I used to express myself without a care. I think at the time, I wan't aware of how "strange" it was to speak what you felt. I just said what I thought, and I was hated so much back in middle school. I gradually became afraid of speaking my mind, to the point of I just stopped talking about me altogether.

Now if someone asks me how I feel, I would just say "Well, I don't really know. How about you?". I'm trying to change, but it's hard when your defense becomes a habit. That's why this talk, and other inspirational talks as well, helps me so much.

Why do I always seem to get stuck with the apathetic staff and shitty facilities while you guys talk about your caring nurses and strong friendships and actually being *helped* in a lasting way ?

I really appreciate how Glennon has been able to put words to what are very common experiences for a lot of young women. With both humor and humility she painted a very clear picture of both her struggle and her triumph .. thanks for that, Glennon!

Glennon, what a beautiful talk. You were so brave to share your experiences. I read the following verses today and it reminded me of your words. Romans 13:12-14 "The night is far spent, the day is at hand; let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering, and wantoness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. (King James version of the Holy Bible)

One of my favourite TED talks ever.
Suppressing feelings for too long leads to numbness and apathy. Far far better to feel the discomfort than feel nothing.

Автор Madie Teltow ( назад)
This shows not only to be open to mental patients but to all patients. Every patient is going through something different and need to be shown that that is okay. Also, the hospital is there to help you. In mental hospitals, patients shouldn't be scared to talk or share their story. The staff is there to help you and be with you through that difficult time or for whenever you need them. I like that her hospital had everyone hold hands and no one was left alone. This is how it should be out of the hospital too. Everyone needs to stop being so judgmental and take a step back and realize that everyone is going through something different. Glennon shares that it will get worse before it gets better. All those feelings will become present but you get through it and everyone will become better. Yes life is really hard, but you can do those hard things. Sometimes its okay to say today is a bad day and today I'm not fine but the next day is a new day. You can go everyday hiding and feeling low or you can go out into the light and live your life to the fullest.

This is super true. Being in and out of hospitals. They cover everything and anything. Not like the movies.. but generally they say no touching.

I'm 59 years old and it's taken all this time for me to finally accept that I have problems I've found that it's important for me to sit with the truth, accept it, not run away because of the pain. There is indeed pain, but I will learn from it and get well and take steps forward when I accept and live in this very moment, even when it hurts.

Автор Joanna Badillo ( назад)
Great job!
I wish it was more social acceptable to say "I'm not okay". So many people judge those who aren't afraid to share their feeling, and it ends up making everyone hid under those capes even more. We should be allowed to say "i'm not okay" and that be okay.

Mental illness is being caused by radio transmitted signals. SDR transmissions. Its widespread, but hardly known outside of Canada, where the law is different. organisations have used the technology for some time now in propaganda campaigns and sadly the ongoing use by governments and organisations across countries is leading to widespread mental disorders. You can try to reduce this by using radio jammers or specialised cloth.

I think you could have left the "mental hospital" part of it out. Addicts are not for mental hospitals. They don't interact respectfully with psychotic people. Your philosophy is great for you, but it's not stopping anyone terrorized by demonic voices. Most people in mental hospitals have a poor long-term prognosis, many and most will not be married, have kids or live on their own. Most people with repetitive involuntary psychiatric internment will have to go on disability. They'll often have very, if any, friends and be rejected by what family they had. This is not what you're talking. These just aren't your people. I understand the title gets clicks, but people on court ordered anti-psychotics don't give TED talks about accepting themselves. That's a cognitive therapy strategy. Major mental illnesses have pharmacological solutions; all the talk and diet and supplements come in a very distant second. The probate courts make sure of this. Your problems are legitimate to you and you've triumphed, but you not fighting a legitimate major genetic based mental health issue. The title could have been anything about recognizing your problems and a method of dealing with them you discovered them. In mental hospitals people scream at demons, they throw chairs. They are injected with medication against their will. They are strapped to beds. Alcohol is horrible but in different ways. Treatment programs are different. Some of these places have manicures and spas. That's not a mental hospital.

School . 'A 200 year old mental wrecking system. How ironic that there are so much alternative ways to educate the young.. But we keep clinging to a'jungle model'. where a few strong/popular rule..(for a few years). Giving the rest of the kids neuroses for life. When school is over these same 'strong ones' end up in jail, Or become CEO's .Still we wonder why our society is such a mess, and why people never change...

I wanted to watch your presentation, unfortunately I wasn't allowed. Instead I was given high anxiety and an invisible person telling me that you don't deserve to be on stage. This really hurts me because we are a lot alike. This sort of thing continues to happen to me (and I'm sure others). I feel that there are people pretending to be God, commanding my brain to feel like you mentioned at the beginning of your lecture, (unfortunately like I said, I wasn't given permission to watch the rest of it). I'm praying this is going to stop happening. I've never felt anything like this. I have never been attached to technology before. I'm hoping this will change. I'm so tired and ill from this.

God bless

I was put in a eating disorder recovery facility for 3 months of my life. When the doctor told my mother that it was really bad and that I needed to be put in a 'safer place', I cried for hours. I wanted to jump of the stair case and break my neck. My mum simply sat down in the corridor and said ' how do you want your funeral to be organised?'. We sat together talking about my funeral and who I was going to invite, then my mum said that 'you better get to it then'. It was weird because we weren't laughing or crying, it was very serious. I didn't do it, and I couldn't do it. I look back on the situation every single time I am confronted with something that makes me feel sad and vulnerable, because it makes me laugh. That sounded psychotic but it just seems funny to me now. I live my life now with dark humour as the centre of it because if you can't learn to laugh at death then you will end up scared and worried of not living it properly. My eating disorder taught me so many lessons but the biggest lesson was just laugh at life because you only live a very short time so why not laugh your way through it😄

Yep, thoroughly enjoyed this video and can relate to it 100%. I got fed up with 'identify' after 11 years in AA. My feelings are what guide me too and I don't live from my head anymore. My head was & still can be, where my problem lies. I still suffer from anxiety without medication around some alcoholics (long story but involves a traumatic experience) but generally, I feel good about myself. I do enjoy a simple, quiet life with the help of medication and I no longer lie about being fine, unless it's the kind of fine which is 'fucked up, insecure, neurotic & emotional'.

This is odd - I was labeled insane because I told the truth and hid nothing - and got called a fake... In the mental hospital, I began to fake sanity in order to get away from the boredom and get back out... This has helped me understand my addict ex, though...

I like her dedication and passion and I liked the lessons she got from the mental hospital. However, it hit me... having a baby after hooking up during a binge party is not being "chosen". Almost all the people on this planet can have a baby from a random sex encounter. This is nothing to be proud of, in my opinion. A story like thousand others.

Автор Tim McC ( назад)
This is a brave, bold statement. I've always admired and respected the sincerity that people can show, because for better or for worse, if we are to survive as a species, we need to be understood. We can't be understood without the courage and the sincerity to speak what we believe, otherwise others do not hear our message, and do not see things within those messages that could help make themselves better people.

After all, people are like disco balls, we don't get to see every side of them at once, its only with time, patience, and a bit of luck, that we get to see them shine in a bright, beautiful light such as we have seen right here.

I used to have peace... but then I had a serious hand injury at work,  and after 5 surgeries in 8 months I was addicted to Vicodin... I kicked this habit cold turkey with HORRIBLE withdrawals that lasted 3 weeks- 3 weeks of hell.... Then began my alcohol addiction, and it has me by the balls.  I've been drunk every fkng night for the past 3 yrs straight.  It's ruined my marriage and I've hurt people..I've been in jail for disorderly conduct.  I irresponsibly allowed one of my dogs to get loose, and he ended up with his skull crushed on the highway... My mom is in hell because of my stupid fkng ass... I hate my job  and sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, as the saying goes...I'm manic-depressive also...  I'm only happy if I have alcohol, weed, and pain killers; otherwise, I'm fkng miserable.. I need help.  I had a phychiatrist tell me that my trajectory is suicide and/ or prison..  I'm hanging by a thread, it feels.   Since this past Wed,  I've said,  "Today I won't drink."  But I drink.  THursday, same fkng thing.. Friday, ditto...  What the fk do I do?    I've called off over 30x this year at work; it's a fkng miracle that I still have a job.   I hate my fucking job (I know, everyone does)...  How do I make the first step?  And what IS the first step???

I listened to what she had to say, and I'm glad it worked for her. I listened to her advice, and it simply made me feel sad and ashamed at not achieving her success. I find my safest, happiest moments are when I'm out in the "messy" life she describes, but away from other people and manmade stuff. For many, that might be considered a true basis of chaos. For me, it simply feels reasonably safe. I've been unable to make sense of people, and after several decades of trying, I'm losing my interest in doing so.

But I cheer her on in her endeavors, and to the extent her words make sense for others, I think that's a good thing. I wish her well.

Автор Marshall Curtis ( назад)
At 13:00, there must be a disconnect in her presentation, or else I am missing something. For she says on the one hand that she now is "not perfect", but is a "fully human being". Then a few seconds later, she says she is still "exactly the same person" ("scared, anxious, oily, ALL the time") that she was before. I don't get it.

My point is this, what praytell is the point of going through all this mental health treatment hell ("dark night of the soul") if she is still "exactly the same person" as she was before?

The elephant in the room is called "Socially Approved and Oprah-Excused Parental Neglect." Oprah literally lives to brush parental neglect under the carpet, and make excuses for it when she is forced to acknowledge it. An 8 year old with bulimia? She was neglected by her parents! And I guarantee no one will acknowledge it, unless they are excusing it. Being a loving parent is not as important as having 'nice clothes' and a 'nice house.' Our society is a joke.

In the mental hospital there was no pretending. What hospital were you in? "Fake it 'till you make it" was what I was told. From the most educated doctor to the least experienced therapist/counselor. I know it is supposed to be some zen like, power of positive thinking
