I have decided to give LiveJournal another chance after a time away. I have made great friendships through this site and I have met some of the most wonderful people. However, I have also had bitter encounters: two during this year, after almost eight years of peaceful journaling. I don't have anything against them, and I'm open to make up our differences, but the problems which emerged between us in both cases had to do with me talking about my feelings and speaking up my mind for a treatment I didn't consider right. I'm really sorry to realize that letting them know their words hurt me was seen as an insult, but I'm glad I now have experiences to recall and make me strong.

Truth is, I'm going through a very hard period of my life, and though I believe I don't entirely deserve it, my good friends of years, in the other hand, have been very supportive and loving to me. That's what I'm seeking for in a friend, since that's what I want to give back. For me, what makes LJ so special is that you can feel someone is there reading and understanding, while you get to know the people who reads about your life and build real friendships, share fun and sad anecdotes, get excited or worried for the other.

If you share some of these thoughts and would like to be friends with me, drop me a comment and tell me something about you. But if you don't... please do not add me. Having only understanding and empathetic friends close is an important matter to me now, since not everything in my life is going well. If you just add me for any other reason and don't talk to me first, sorry but I won't add you back. It doesn't matter how similar or different we are, I love to meet people from all over the world with all kinds of tastes and personalities.

Have a good day and see you around! ♥

People is going crazy (sometimes jokingly, sometimes overreacting) over the wall that Donald Trump will probably build in our frontier with U.S. when he becomes president. And the value of our national currency against the dollar has dropped as never before, making it almost half as it used to be for years.

I'm not really sure what to think about all of this, I never thought Trump would actually win. Beyond all the things he is, he has said and he has done, for me, he always seemed like a ridiculous character appearing on T.V. who had a weird obsession with belittling my country.

I live incredibly close to U.S., I am someone whom his hate speech was directed to, but I don't feel entitled to give an opinion. All I can say is that I know what it feels like to be so lost and devastated after a president election, it happened to my people four years ago.

My mom would be so dissappointed... she was worried about the possibility of Trump winning and I always told her that couldn't and wouldn't happen. Now it happened, and the future of many people is uncertain.

Also... the parade on the James Bond movie wasn't even a tradition here until that movie came out, this year was the first time they ever hosted it in Mexico City.

"We need to change the culture of this topic, and make it ok to speak about mental health".

I invite you to read my article Human Rights and Dignity of the Patient with a Mental Disorder that I wrote from a conference I attended last year, on the Mental Health Conferences 2015: The Dignity in Psychiatric Patients.

And for my friends, you can find the post where I wrote all about it here.
