Heal Yourself, Skeletor

Skeletor is experiencing the profound emptiness and isolation of human existence. Follow his journey to positive mental health through daily affirmations.

ambrosecollector asked: One of your affirmations mentions not seeking chemical answers to emotional problems. Are you opposed to medicating mental/emotional disorders? Or are you talking more about drug/alcohol abuse?

Oh, yes - that was most definitely referring to drug and alcohol abuse! Or, as some people might say - “self medicating”, seeking refuge and solace in drugs and alcohol.

However,  I am a huge believer in supervised medicating for chemical imbalances in the brain and so on - I have seen what a positive change that makes in an person and am all for it.  Take your medications, people

coyote-crunked-monkey asked: The "tired of my own bullshit" one really resonates with me. It's what I felt when I realized I was ready to quit drinking. I'm 209 days sober :)

I think that is fantastic!  Congratulations, friend.  I wish I could remember who said that, it was a random person on twitter and I paraphrased it a bit, but I never got to thank him/her. They inspired a great many people that day!

You are quite welcome! And thank you for the thoughtful note, I always find a few kind words day-brightening and motivating myself!

A bonus for today.  Inspired by unkind words from a stranger.

TODAY I WILL CAREFULLY CONSIDER MY WORDS.  ARE THEY INSIGHTFUL?  CONSTRUCTIVE?
IF NOT - I WILL OPT FOR SILENCE

For those of you who do not know, I am a woman. That is to say me - the creator of Skeletor is Love. I wanted to in some way address the atrocities committed by that misogynist extremist (I am not mentioning his name, he does not deserve that glorification), but to be honest, my thoughts are too panicked, too frightened and most of all - too angry to be able to sum them up in a pithy affirmation for Skeletor today or any day this week. I am not even sure if this is the appropriate place for such a thing. But I don’t think there is ever an an inappropriate place to remind each other to be good to each other, be kind, and treat each other decently. 
I think we, all of us, have a lot to think about, to talk about and most of all - to change. We’ll be back soon with regular content.
