Raising from the Dead

Hello pineapples!

I know, it’s been a long time since we don’t post anything.

We died for a moment, but we’re back and ready to improve some more. πŸ˜‰

A lot has happened during these past few months in terms of jobs, relationships, mental health, and life-changing decisions. While there are different reasons we stopped blogging, there’s one in specific that affected us the most.

The most important reason being our own mental health. When we first started this blog we wanted a place where we could share unconventional coping skills, while at the same time developing a new perspective about mental health.

But we quickly found out, that the more we focused on ways to help ourselves, and others, the more aware we were of the condition of our minds. The more ups and downs we had on our daily lives. So we stopped for a moment because…

….being able to help others can only be successful once you’ve helped yourself.

It was like the roller coaster stalled at the bottom for what it felt like an eternity and then it slowly went up. We were left hanging there at the top…waiting for the drop.

The drop happened faster for Astrid, less intense than usual.

However, I’m still there. Hanging with my arms up, feeling the adrenaline run through my body. A mix of fear and excitement. I thought going back to writing about mental health could potentially jeopardize my own mental health.

Nevertheless, here I am. Willing to find out what happens when it drops.

We will pick up our blog one more time, although it’ll be full of our own experiences rather than self-help articles, there’s a lot of exciting stuff coming up in our lives and we’d like a place to log that into.

Whether someone reads this or not, it’ll be a journal of self-improvement and dreams. Of thoughts and fears.

A place for us to look back and say “Damn we’ve come a long way.”

Stay tuned. pineapples! ❀
