How I Use the Brotherhood Marking

brotherhood-black.png

When I think of the word ‘brotherhood,’ I think of a non-sexual, deep and caring love between two people. While the word itself implies a bond between men, women are participants in brotherhood.

The love is undoubtedly masculine in nature. It’s a sort of competitiveness, but never at the others’ expense. Being a psychotically paranoid person, I often see most men as a threat. I am suspicious of them and am always on guard. This state results in me being apprehensive,...

How I Use the Self-Respect Marking

self-respect-black.png

Sometimes, I find myself putting the needs of others before my own. This may seem like a virtue, but if it goes to the extent of harming myself to carry out this good will, in the long run, I am doing a disservice to myself and others.

One time, I found my health deteriorating drastically from putting a significant amount of time and energy toward someone.

By focusing on the Self-Respect marking, I can reel myself back from the good I think I'm doing and see the harm I'm doing to myself. I...

How I Use the Music Marking

As someone with schizophrenia, I get distracted by so many things. Thoughts, sights, sounds, delusions, paranoia, hallucinations, patterns, smells, feelings, pains, phantom pains, the list goes on.

Music is a way to focus my mind and turn me away from all of the intrusive experiences. It makes me more present to the moment. However, I can't always turn up the volume and jam out wherever I want.

By focusing on the Music marking, I replicate the calming and focusing effects of music itself. I...

How I Use the Sincerity Marking

We've all done it before at some point; over-committed, overbooked, said to a friend, "we should see each other more often!" and then not see them again for 9 months.

We often lie to others inadvertently because we become victims of lying to ourselves.

By focusing on the Sincerity marking, my attention is brought to my over-excitement of the time. It gives me perspective on how I spend my time and gives me the ability to respond to those I care for honestly and respectfully.
