February achievements, with a theme of opening up!

kaiikaii Posts: 447 Listening Ear
Hello everyone, how have you all been? Hopefully February has been well for you!

I’m here again to encourage you all to share with the community anything you’ve achieved this month – your achievements don’t have to be massive, what counts is the impact it has on you! The small victories matter, and you may find that celebrating your wins can contribute to greater mental health. I recently experienced that focussing on what I’ve accomplished helped me stop being hard on myself.

Feel free to write as many achievements as you wish! :3

My achievements this month:
- Did some public speaking in front of parents and university applicants
- Started doing extremely well in my driving progress
- Started picking up the habit to draw a little each day
- Remained calm after encountering an emotionally distressing situation

As for this month’s theme, quite a lot of things related to mental health happened this month! There was time to talk day (https://timetotalkday.co.uk/), children’s mental health awareness week (https://www.childrensmentalhealthweek.org.uk/), and random acts of kindness day (https://www.randomactsofkindness.org/rak-week)!

I wanted to ask everyone how comfortable do you usually feel opening up to a trusted person about how you’re feeling? And how do you think opening up can be better for you personally?

Personally, I’m still trying my best to feel comfortable opening up to others – it’s extremely difficult for me. For me, opening up can be better if I know for sure that the person I’m opening up to won’t give me any judgment, and that they’re just here to listen. And I also think being part of a supportive and lovely community like The Mix Charity helps greatly since I can talk about anything here!

If anyone has any ideas of what the theme could be/what theme you want for next month, don’t hesitate to let me know! :3

Really well done for getting through February, and I wish everyone a lovely March! <3

    @lunarcat522, really well done, I'm so happy for you! I've also started reading again too, so I totally relate to how good it feels to get out of a reading slump! <3

    @Verinelin, omg good job! Tidying your room is such a laborious task and takes a lot of energy - you've inspired my to tidy up my room now haha! And I feel exactly the same way when it comes to opening up! Sometimes a non-judgmental trusted person is what we need, advice isn't necessary unless it's asked for :3

    @sinead276, keeping up with uni is just challenging, and you're amazing for getting by! And I agree, it's always good to reach out to people you're familiar with and explore what kind of people they are!

    Very well done everyone and I hope you have a wonderful March! <3

    Also well done to everyone and their achievments this month!. I'm super proud of you for getting through February. Here's to an amazing March.

    I think for me I think one of my achievements was trying to keep up each day and asking about annual leave as I kept forgetting to take time off. I got annual leave on Tuesday so I will be going out and I can't wait.
