Certain things like sunshine, water, nutrition, mindfulness and emotional regulation (by yourself and/or with a therapist’s help), sleep, exercise, human connection, helping others to boost self-esteem need to be validated more. One doesn’t have to be a doctor to agree with me, these are essential parts of living that God included in our design that fulfill our health. Also, more money should not be going to pharmaceutical companies, rather to teaching parents how to raise their kids, and to providing good healthcare in schools.
This article came out in 2016, and I am so glad something is being done about over-medication in the world:
“Caution! Diagnosis Creep” by Ray Moynihan: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4917625/
Please read and pass on to your loved ones. There is so much we have to regenerate our minds, spirits, and bodies already on this planet. We just have to learn to work together more, and be ourselves naturally (in mind, body, and spirit). I am forever progressing, only because I’m living, and constantly changing, evolving, hurting, healing, and growing. If anyone tells you you “aren’t good enough,” “need work,” or a “work-in-progress” he or she can screw themselves, in my honest opinion. Most likely, he or she is the one that needs some much needed self-reflection and regulation, or just be put behind bars (depending on the severity of the case). For instance, in this day and age, technology is making it easier for one to stalk others. I’ve been a target before, myself, and know that one cannot be too careful. Thankfully, nothing escalated too far, because I took action, and didn’t doubt myself or brush it off as me “just being paranoid.”

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! Remember you have the ability to heal better than you realize.
