It's a topic that needs to be talked about way more than it should, especially in today's world: mental health. Whether it be anxiety, depression or O.C.D. (or anything, really), we have come to learn as a society that it's okay- and even more beneficial than you think- to openly talk about experiencing what almost everyone does inside the complex mind.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month (and also the end of finals season for college students), so what better time to list some positive affirmations to ease the mind this time of year? Just take a deep breath and read on to realize that you are enough, it will be okay and you are not your thoughts; not by a long shot.

1. "Feel what you need to feel and then let it go. Do not let it consume you." - Dhiman

2. "You did well — even when you think it is not enough. Even when others think it's not enough. You tried, and that should count for something. Do not belittle yourself." 

3. "From a year ago today, you have come a long way. Every step you have taken matters more than you know." - Morgan Harper Nichols

4. "I hope you know it's okay if your strength looks a little different in this season." - MHN

5. "You have survived this before and you can therefore do it again. And with each time you do you become stronger. Believe in that."

6. "You are only human and humans are not perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, and it is only how you react to it that defines who you are."

7. "Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay then it's not the end."

8. "You are safe and loved very much. You are more worthy of those two things than you even know."

9. "You are capable of doing anything, and you are becoming a better version of yourself the more you try."

10. "You are in control of your own actions and destiny."

11. "Take things one step at a time, day by day." 

12. "You're a fighter. Look at everything you've overcome. Don't give up now." - Olivia Benson

13. "This is the root of Self. You are not your thoughts; you are aware of your thoughts. You are not your emotions; you feel your emotions…. You are the conscious being who is aware that you are aware of all these inner and outer things." - Michael Singer

14. "You are allowed to be happy and deserve all of the good your mind can imagine."

15. "You are enough. You are significant. Remember this always."

Sudan Military Kills Over 100 Peaceful Protesters | NowThis www.youtube.com

Turmoil is spreading in Sudan as civilians are being massacred left and right, but few are aware of the details leading up to and regarding the calamity. Here is everything you need to know about the crisis in Sudan.

Civilians began to protest against President Omar al-Bashir as his presidency was one of violence and suffering. Under his rule, thousands of villagers were murdered by the government militia in 2003, and millions of Sudanese people were displaced from their homes. While the president was charged with genocide and war crimes, the charges were dropped when the government failed to get support from the UN. Bashir was again arrested in April 2019, after three decades of rule and several large protests.

After his rule came to an end, the people demanded a democracy, and smaller, peaceful protests eventually merged into a mass civil disobedience. Sudanese authorities banned social media and cut internet and mobile data in the capital of Sudan. Recently, soldiers have begun to open fire on crowds of protestors, rape women and men, and beat the protestors that remained on the streets. So far, it is estimated that over 100 people have been killed, 70 raped, and 700 injured. Among these numbers are hundreds of young children.

These people have no access to the outside world, or basic necessities like food and water. Instead of remaining silent and waiting for our country to step in, do your part and 1. Share this article informing others of the crisis 2. Sign this petition demanding the UN investigate this atrocity 3. Donate something to this GoFundMe raising money for Sudanese medical aid. Every share, signature and donation can and will make a difference.
