Hello, I’m Clisver Alvarez I am a Mental health coach, writer, advocate, CPRS and mom. I started coaching to help others overcome struggles and within that I helped my self out of my own pain. I believe that when you think positive you become positive. I’m starting this blog to help others overcome struggles, by sharing my life experiences and my positive outlook on life. Positivity is also very contagious, if your are around positive people you will attract positivity aswell as if your around negative people viseversa. So would you rather see the cup half empty or half full? In this blog I will share my life experiences aswell as my views on life and how i deal with my bipolar disorder. I do this to empower people and show them that there is light at the end of the tunnel.
From the first moment of finding out I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder to the moment I first accept it, I knew this would be a big part of my life. If I only knew how big of an impact it would have on me. The first time I experience stigma was so shocking and devastating to me that I decided from that moment on that I needed to do something about it! So I decided that I was going to help others by creating a blog in which they could express their struggles with mental health. My blog did not work out as planned but I did not give up I was determined to help others battle their struggles with mental health just like I’d battled with my bipolar disorder. I was diagnosed at the age of 16 when this occurred I felt like the world ended. I did not give up. I decided to work on myself and I had not forgotten about my goal to help others overcome struggles but now I had seemed to overcome so many other struggles that it just seemed inevitable and I decided to become a life coach, not just that but I help those who have a mental health diagnosis and want to better themselves just like I did because no matter what others have to say about you, only you have a choice to give them power over your life, and only you can choose how you let it affect you.
Here’s my “why.”
Going on my own mental health struggles made me a believer in coaching. So I set out on my own journey to be that person for others. A few years later, I’ve helped many regain their inner strength, vitality, and set goals. Through one-on-one coaching sessions, my online course, and written content, I’ve been fortunate enough to connect with unbelievable people throughout.
My work has been featured in Good Housekeeping magazine, Web MD, Meerkat Motivator, and many more.
I also started a campaign to help others overcome struggles. I believe that when you think positive you become positive and if you learn or do something positive you must pass that on to someone else and so on. I hope that by sharing my life experiences and my positive outlook on life I can help others change their perspective towards stigma. I believe everyone should have a chance at achieving their best potential. Many of us have forgotten how to be a helping hand to others because we don’t receive any help from anyone. I believe that the simple act of doing something for someone, of lending a helping hand, should be done out of the kindness of your heart and can have such an impact on someone’s life. This is the land of opportunities and everyone deserves to have opportunities to grow and flourish. My mission is for those who suffer from mental illness to have the same opportunities as everyone else, and not have to suffer from any stigma surrounding them. Since I know I can’t control the world I want to try and help those who I can by giving them more chances at opportunities, by easing their situations. For example by helping them with their everyday struggles or just lending a helping hand. I hope that by doing this I can start to raise awareness on stigma and on some of the other issues we the people in the mental health community face because you never know who you can save by just being present.
Sincerely, Clisver Alvarez
