Mental Health Awareness Month

British singer James Blake took to Twitter to talk about the response he often gets to his songs that have lyrics that are emotionally vulnerable. He says that he often receives a response of "sad boy" whenever he posts a song in which he expresses what would be seen as not masculine emotions. 

“We are already in an epidemic of male depression and suicide. We don’t need any further proof that we have hurt men with our questioning of their need to be vulnerable and open. It is only a good thing to talk about what is on your mind."

I Know There's An Answer

I know so many people who think they can do it alone
They isolate their heads and stay in their safety zones
— The Beach Boys

In 1968 Brian Wilson started having a diminished role in the band, formerly the principal songwriter, as he started to have mental health challenges. He was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, bipolar type. This lead him to be inactive and turn toward drugs. However, through various medications and therapies he was able to begin writing and recording again and says he is doing better than ever now. 

So You Wanna Be A Superhero

Just thoughts of how I might
Struggle through tomorrow
Too much time in one day
Too much time to occupy
With boring thoughts
And boring moods
And boring bedtimes
— Carissa's Weird

Saying God, make me famous
If You can’t, just make it painless

No More Shame, No More Fear, No More Dread

If my ugly had a shape it would be a spiral
Moving forward as it spins around
It’s all that I can do to break the cycle
Just veer hard as I can then keep from crashing to the ground
