I have shared about the importance of validating someone’s story when it comes to abuse or mental health, but I saw something later that made me want to write more about the little ways we invalidate someone’s experience.

It all started with this story, where Heidi shares what is probably not an uncommon scenario: What we see here is a young woman in distress because of a mental health condition and having the doctor, and others, ask questions that appear to be very dismissive.

Tying a major depressive episode to being sad about a breakup. Because you know, young women get all “in their feels” when they have a breakup, so it’s probably nothing more than that.

Renew your Mind with a Mental Spring Clean
Spring is the season for new beginnings, a time to renew and recharge.  But more importantly just as we do a regular ‘spring clean’ of our home to declutter our personal space we should also be focused on a ‘spring cleanup for our mind’ as well.   After all, it is your mental thoughts that create your life’s destinyDeclutter your mind, what a fabulous idea!  Begin to rid yourself of any negative thoughts and behaviours you have harbored from the past in order to live a fulfilling life now.   Let’s use a seed we plant in the earth as an analogy.  With enough nurturing and care that seed will bloom into a beautiful plant or flower.   However, at the same time if you are not taking care of it weeds will begin to grow and the plant will die off and wither away from a lack of attention. What I do know for a fact is ‘thoughts are things’.    When you plant positive thoughts into your magnificent mind you will create positive outcomes.   Similar to a seed planted in the earth that has a set pattern destined by nature to grow into fruition we also have the ability to materialize into any self image we want thru concentrated effort.   So, like the seed, if your thought is ‘planted’, ‘nurtured’ and cared for those focused thoughts will manifest into physical reality.   Just like the miracle of tulip bulbs that quietly grow beneath the earth surface popping up thru the cold wintry ground they manifest into a beautiful flower.  Well, we can do the very same thing with a proper mindset! You have the ability to pull ‘negative weeds’ from your mind.

These science-based exercises explore fundamental aspects of positive psychology, including strengths, values, and self-compassion, and will give you the tools to enhance the wellbeing of your clients, students, or employees.Jean Piaget’s theory of cognitive development remains among the most complete and influential theories describing how the human mind shapes and develops through the process of learning.At the University of Geneva in the 1960s, Piaget employed elegant experimental techniques and keen observational insight to analyze the moving pieces of cognitive development in children (Scott & Cogburn, 2021).A biologist by training, Piaget took a pragmatic and mechanistic approach to understanding how the advanced architecture of human cognition develops, looking past the intuitive conception of the mind as something apparently complex and unapproachable to see simple and ordered principles of organization lying underneath (Scott & Cogburn, 2021).At the core of Piaget’s theory are stages of development (Malik & Marwaha, 2021; Scott & Cogburn, 2021), a series of overall states of increasing cognitive sophistication defined principally by how the developing human ‘knows’ (i.e., understands) the world.Learning is both the cognitive activity that occurs during these stages and the process of moving between stages.
