Blogchatter A2Z Challenge Day 24- Xenagogy to self-help

Xenagogy is referred to a guide for the tourist or visitors.

Blog background:

I started as an Open diary blogger in 2017 and use to write once or twice in a month about the stereotypes, limiting beliefs and anything which hampers the growth of a person on an individual level.

Knowingly or unknowingly I developed a niche, I could connect with my readers by sharing life lessons and a few experiences and soon I discovered that a lot of people are dealing with end number negative emotions, depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, relationship, trust issues, career stress and what not and I started focusing in this particular area, I started reading a lot and got so much involved that I have also taken a huge task in my hand to accomplish doctorate in Psychology which I am preparing for at present.


How my blog is a Xenagogy to Self-help?

As I started connecting with a lot of people I could feel their pain, maybe I could empathize a lot and it led me to follow a path of spreading awareness, although initially I got few comments saying that it is easier said than done, the tips or steps I stress to follow doesn’t have any impact, but I never had a doubt on my own intentions as my aim was simply to spread some awareness that STRESS is a leading cause for many physical an emotional disturbances among us.

People still don’t believe it, but it is scientifically proven that too much STRESS can increase the risk of conditions like obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, depression, gastrointestinal problems, and asthma in an individual.

As Mahatma Gandhi rightly quoted, “Be the change you want to see in the world”, hence I decided to be the change, started doing my bit through my blogs and later on started speaking about it on youtube channel to reach to maximum people.

I will succeed in establishing myself as Mental Health or Self Help Awareness Blogger or not, is the question I have left to time, but now when I look back I have tried to touch many chords of human emotions, unfolded many mysteries of the human mind and have made fair attempt in spreading some love and compassion towards people around me.

Hence I can call my blog a Xenagogy to Self help,as it could definitely help my visitors to help themselves to understand them, to fall in self-love, to appreciate the little things around them, to be grateful for what they have, to stop pleasing people and seeking validation, to stop being judgemental and putting others down and above all accepting that depression is for real, people suffer and we can be kind to them a it costs nothing.

Much love and much gratitude

  2. So good that you have found your niche area in blogging. Yes, people have problems related to anxiety, stress and many other problems. If one can apply a balm, nothing like it. Stress is the major killer of today. If nothing else, one should recognise that a person is under stress. it is important to aspire to be less critical, less judgemental. Problem is many of these traits are so deeply embedded, that it would need a lot of conscious effort to avoid being judgemental.
