  1. In college, I get a scholarship for good academic performance and I want to save money. However, all the time I see something cool to buy that I want to have and I buy so everything. In the end, I don't save the money and I feel remorse that I spent money again on things I don't need and then I don't use them. When I buy a new thing, I again look at how much I've already spent this month and the guilt sets in again. I feel bad that the urge to buy suddenly is stronger than the urge to save. I've also noticed that at times when I have no income, I don't spend money on unnecessary things. I notice this phenomenon in myself when I have "too much" money. This need to buy is sudden. I don't really know how not to buy things when I just have the thought that I want to have them....
  2. After commenting on Tony's post called "How social media affects your reality?", I have decided to publish this post talking more specifically about the distortion that we create in our image using filters on social networks to meet the expectations of some stereotypes of unreal beauty. Citing my case; My problem is that I feel pressure on social media for how it should look. They all show a beautiful version of themselves and sometimes it is unreal. But sometimes I ignore that and try to reach the level of beauty to get validation from others. And not meeting expectations is very frustrating because when I see my real image I don't like it at all. And to see myself better I use instagram filters for example, and I abuse them so much, because I don't look good, that when I see my face without filters it horrifies me. it's a very toxic loop.
  3. I think this is THE MOST IMPORTANT question to ask, mental health problems are mostly caused by things that are happening in each household. Directly or indirectly... I would gladly listen to you guys, and share my own experiences!
  4. Earlier today, Kathy Hochul, the current Governor of the State of New York, took to Twitter to announce that all of New York's landmarks will be lit in purple, blue, red, and pink, in honour of the Born This Way Foundation's BeKind21 campaign, which ended today, September 21st. She then talks about the importance of providing young people with mental health resources and goes on to thank Lady Gaga and the Born This Way Foundation for their continuous work for mental wellness. I think this is a lovely idea! It's so important to encourage people to talk about their mental heath! What do you think of this idea?
  5. TW: Depression, Death, PTSD, Sexual Assault, Suicidal Thoughts Everyone has at least one song from Gaga that they can say saved them, helped them cope, or even made them realize something about themselves they hadn't known before. For me I have a few songs that helped me do all three. Now of course there are other things that her music has done, but in relation to these examples I have 3 songs that had the most impact for me mentally. First one being Joanne. Joanne helped me overcome my grief, come to accept loss of loved ones and loss in general, and just feel emotions. Million Reasons came to my rescue during my depression. I had so many reasons in my life to give up, but I thought of one specific reason to keep going: if I give up here I'll never know what I could have possibly accomplished. This made me keep fighting. Finally, the most recent song from Chromatica being Replay. I have PTSD from a sexual assault that happened to me when I was 5 and it took me until last year to finally accept the feelings and the impact it had on me today and I cried. I realized what had actually been taken from me by force and had to come to terms with the fact I may never experience what I'm supposed to experience now. Gaga saved me many times, but how has she saved you?
  6. just a little mental health check up. how’s your day/night so far and how are you feeling? my day is pretty okay so far but it’s not over for me yet cause its only 11:52 AM where i live. i feel alright right now though.
  7. Hey monsters, how are y’all? I suffer from erythrophobia, which if you do not know it’s the fear of blushing/turning red in front of people. It causes social anxiety and it forces you to become very introverted and quiet. I want to share an example: So a couple of weeks ago my friend invited me over for dinner with her mom (mind you this was the first time i met her mother). When I got there she told me that there was going to be another couple joining us, so I was already dreading the idea of sitting at the table and have any attention on me. Of course at some point someone asked me “christian, what do you do in life?” and I had to answer. It was so uncomfortable. Then to top it all, my friend clocked my redness and said something along the lines “why did you turn so red?” In front of everyone, and I just started freaking out internally. Whenever I turn red I just feel naked, like my body is just showing everyone how I am feeling. So to counteract it I turn to quietness and I try to avoid any attention. I just become an introvert. The problem with that is that most people associate someone’s being quiet to someone that is being stuck up, or rude, or too good to be in that situation... you know? Like you just emanate this negative vibe that you don’t want to be there. And they probably think you don’t want to be there because you don’t like them, but in truth you just hate yourself (for blushing) and you don’t want people to see you blush. Maybe it’s just me but I also have a very hard time keeping eye contact on people because I feel like I see their reactions to my redness through the way they look at me. And I always feel like I am transmitting my unease to everyone by blushing. Like I fear/feel that I make you uncomfortable just by blushing. Does that happen to any of you? Like someone is talking and they make eye contact with everyone as they’re talking and when it’s your turn to have eye contact with the person talking you just feel uncomfortable even though they’re the ones talking and everyone is looking at them, not you. I hate it so much. I just feel like I can’t have any friends because I can’t simply sit down and relax and crack jokes anywhere. Even if in my head I have a ton of stuff to joke or just talk about, I just sit quiet and feel awkward for no reason other than the huge anxiety my blushing causes me. Have people ever asked you like “hey did you sunbathe or something? You’re so red”? I get that a lot when people want to know why I’m red. It’s those little comments that have built this huge anxiety and fear of blushing. I wish I could be careless and outgoing like everyone else, even if I blush. I wish to not give any fucks about it, but I can’t 😞
  8. What are the green flags of a relationship according to you? We always discuss the red flags and the toxicity, I want to discuss the positive aspects too. My partner does little things that would go unnoticed by other people, but mean so much to me. For example, three days later we have Eid, which is a celebration for Muslims around the world after Ramadan. He just wished me three days earlier because he wanted to be the first one 🥺❤️ My sister told me today that ever since I've been talking to him, I've been happier. And that I don't have as many outbursts anymore. I guess others around us can see the change of a healthy relationship in us too. That made me so content.
  9. To anyone else who is currently doing online school, how is it treating you? It's been really stressful recently so I haven't been able to come on here as much as I want to :(
  10. So a month ago I have gotten covid 19 and I just wanted to share my experience with you all after all it depends from person to person but I will tell how it went for me. So the 1st day I had covid I didn't feel much except having my head hurt a little. Then the 2nd day when I woke up I woke up with a very big headache and it was impossible for me to look at a screen. The 3rd day I began coughing(my throat didn't hurt) and had a bigger appetite. On the 4th day i lost my scent. On The 5th day my headache was gone completely but my back started hurting like crazy. I got my scent back after a week and I stopped coughing after a month. If you ever get covid just know It'll be ok and try to stay positive. I was listening to a lot of music(when my headache was gone) and was dancing even tho I was sick so stay positive monsters in what ever situation you may be sending lots of love ❤❤❤❤
  11. Be kind with your mind. If you are struggling with something you will get over this. Take care little monster, the monster family is here for you 🤍
  12. Hello little monsters I am starting this topic because i want people to feel better about themselves and just to tell somebody how you day was to help a little bit. I will start, my day has been good today, i got an xp-pen for school and its a 9/10
  13. Hello everyone, continuing with the Mental Health Awareness Month activities, today we will talk about Social Media and how it affects our reality. My best friend sent me this video yesterday and it is really interesting since I felt identified in the little sketch the creator made in this video, social media has been part of my depression and anxiety. I really believe that must of people insecurities is because of what we seen on social media. We have to detox our social media, it’s okay to unfollow, it’s okay to block, it’s okay to uninstall an app. Just do anything you think will do the best for you. Social Media is not going to disappear, but we can control it and manage it responsibly. Do you feel identified with the video? Have you tried to stay away from social media? Let’s discuss!
  14. Hello everyone, I hope you are okay and healthy. I want to bring up this topic for the Mental Health section because it is something that affects a lot of us, and we can feel really sad/depressed about it. I've actually recently gotten out of a Toxic Friendship and it put me in a really bad place but I have now recovered and am doing ok, I also know a lot of people who have been/still are in Toxic Friendships and I can see how it effects other people. So, I want to know if you guys have been through this or if you know someone who was/is affected by a Toxic Friendship.
  15. On a scale of 1-10. How happy are you? 1 = unhappy 10 = very happy If you’re (1-5) we love you and are here for you.
  16. Hey everyone! We all know that Gaga supports the fight against Mental Health. But I want to know, if Gaga helped you fighting Mental Illness and how? Here's my story: In 2015 when I was 16 years old, my life made a 180° twist. I was starting my schooling which meant new school, new people, new stuff. I was lucky to have a few friends from secondary school with me, so I wasn't all alone. A few weeks later it all began. I got up one morning, got ready for school and on my way to school I got a call that my best friend has died in a car accident. I met a friend every morning at a hotel, so we could go together the rest of the way to school. She was waiting that morning for me too and when I saw her, I broke down in tears in her arms. It was horrible. The entire day I spoke to no one and was all by myself. When I got home, I locked myself into my room and listened to some music. When "Til it happens to you" by Gaga came on, I broke down again. I repeated many times listening to it, cause the song was fitting like a glove. My best friend and I wanted to drive by car, but I couldn't, cause I was visiting my grandparents. So I almost were dead too when I would have gone with him in his car. The following weeks and months after that accident many other horrible things happened in my life, like the death of my grandma... So I was falling into a deep depression. The whole time I was listening to Gaga's music, which gave me strength and power to fight against that depression. In June 2016 I was making one of the greatest steps in my life. I had my coming out as bisexual. I first made it public on Instagram and then on Facebook, where my whole family got to see it. Gladly everyone was reacting in positive ways, which made it much easier for me. A few months later I met my boyfriend and won that fight with his help and the help of Gaga. We are still in a relationship, which lasts over four years now. He tries to support me in every way. Now every time I feel sad, I put on Gaga's music and feel better.
  17. Hello monsters! How many of you meditate? I thought we could help each other to improve our techniques and maybe encourage people that are still skeptical to try it! I was one of them, until I tried! Now I meditate, in some periods more regularly than in others, but I really enjoy it. I do Transcendental Meditation and I found it definitely boosts my mood. I really enjoy doing it outdoor, especially when I'm in wild places like a forest, close to a waterfall or a river. I prefer "natural sounds" than recorded ones but sometimes (+ bonus you have that fresh breeze on your face 😍), especially if I'm in a non-completely-quiet place I do put my headphones on. How did you guys start meditating? Is it part of your culture? Do you do it by yourself or with someone? Do you listen to something while you do it? What are your mantras? Do you have any tips you would like to share?
  18. I cover this topic as mental health, since psychologically speaking, we have the power to decide to some extent how an artist influences our life. From a simple song, to taking a kind of "obsession" with the artist, I would like to know how Gaga influences your life in a positive way. In my case, I was going through a very hard time when I discovered her music, I felt sheltered, protected and loved by her since just dance, my love and admiration grew when in Born This Way she released "Marry the night" where I understood the message that he wanted to give me... That even if they had outraged us, we should move on, not cry and that we are capable of creating our own environment and empire. Tell me your experience with Gaga, I would glad to read about it!
  19. US health regulators have lifted an 11-day pause on the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) Covid-19 jab, but will add a warning label about the potential for extremely rare blood clots. A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) panel earlier approved restarting US rollout of the shot. Fifteen vaccine recipients suffered from a dangerous blood clot out of nearly eight million given the jab. This week, Europe's drug regulator also ended restrictions on the J&J vaccine. European regulators this month also linked similar, highly unusual blood clots to the AstraZeneca Covid-19 shot, but found the benefits of the drug outweighed any risks. On Friday afternoon, the CDC and Food and Drug Administration swiftly followed the recommendation of the CDC advisory panel after it voted 10-4 to continue rolling out the vaccine for people 18 years of age and older in line with its original authorisation. The decision means at least 10 million doses of the J&J vaccine, shipped from the company's factory in the Netherlands, can be deployed across the US immediately. The health officials on Friday identified nine more cases of the blood clots, adding to six cases already identified since regulators first approved the jab as safe and effective in February. All were women, most under the age of 50. Three died and seven remain in hospital. About a dozen of the cases affected women aged 30-39. Seven of the women were obese, two had high blood pressure, and two were using oral contraceptives, according to health officials. Dr Sarah Long, of Drexel University College of Medicine, was among the panel members who voted against the proposal because she thought it did not go far enough in warning women. "This is an age group that is most at risk [of the blood clot] that is getting vaccine predominantly to save other peoples' lives and morbidity, not their own," she told AP new agency. "And I think we have a responsibility to be certain that they know this." More on BBC https://bbc.in/3xj3Clz

  21. Long hours and diminishing work-life balance post-shutdown are causing their own silent mental health epidemic. Bosses and workers alike have found the last six months the most stressful since the pandemic hit our shores. A recent survey by Employment Hero of 1000 New Zealand employers and employees found that the majority of respondents from each group were worried about their mental and physical health as well as financial wellbeing. Recruitment agency Employment Hero's head of HR Alex Hattingh said working long hours, ongoing uncertainty about snap lockdowns and the inability to plan ahead has taken a toll on workers' mental health.

  22. May is designated as Mental Health Awareness Month, an opportunity to highlight the importance of positive emotional well-being and its impact on a person's life quality. This is the month we all need to work to remove the stigma associated with people suffering from mental illness. Let's take advantage of the month of May to call on everyone about the importance of taking care of our mental health as a vital part of our well-being and, on the other hand, ending the stigma that exists on people with mental illness. Recognizing that we need professional help to treat mental health problems such as obsessive-compulsive disorders, anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders is not a sign of weakness. On the contrary, seeking help and support to overcome these symptoms is to give oneself a better quality of life and then live healthily. I hope that in this month, and in all the days after this, we can all do our part to be more sensitive about how we speak and treat our colleagues, brothers, and sisters who want to live their lives as fully as the rest of us. wants to do it with dignity. We are planning many activities for you during this month, so please check out for more updates. And feel free to use this Mental Health section to share your stories and sprean kindness and love to everyone. We Love Ü
  23. Hi everyone, I just wanted to know if I'm the only one who really want to go to the chromatica ball but cant because it's to stressful to plan a trip, found a place to sleep and found the arena in a place you never went.. I mean just the idea of all of this organisation makes my heart beat to fast lol and its just the big lines..
  24. Hi! I hope everyone is doing well around here. I wanted to ask, how do you deal with cat calling or people much, much older than you hitting on you? I get so stressed out about this, just a few days ago my principal hit on me through text messages while I was talking to him about our exams and at that moment, I didn't realize that it was creepy until I told my friend much, much later and then I realized how wrong that was, and honestly, I'm not ready to face him again when school opens. We do have to go to school for on-campus exams, so I'm stressing out about seeing him. In 9th grade too, during exams, he used to take a round around the hall, and he would come to my seat in every exam and it was tiring even back then. I can't report him as I don't have the courage for it and I don't even know if I should because it was sort of miniscule, but I wanna know how I should deal with it later on and right now as I'm stressing about it. I have blocked his number at the moment.
  25. Have your parents ever treated you differently then your siblings? In a good way or a bad way? I have experienced this since childhood. My mother clearly prefers my brother over us all siblings, and my dad, he used to always defend us girls against him but now my brother's his favorite too. It obviously engraved a deep complexity inside of me, and I always feel jealous of my brother. I know that I am more academically and behaviorally better than him, but still, he's the golden son and I'm just another one of their three daughters. One thing that irks me the most is I'm grouped as 'the girls'. Like I'm not anything more than a part of that trio, I don't have my own identity or my own thoughts and feelings. It's always 'the girls this' and 'the girls that'. My sisters feel the same way as me, they also feel tired of this endless cycle where we are just treated as an afterthought. I have accepted that I may never be how my brother is to my parents, but sometimes, it still stings. Time doesn't heal all wounds at all, they're still there after all that's passed. What about everyone else here? I want to know if it's just my home that's effed up in everything.
