    #7 @Jason Baudendistel as Matt wrote, it sure does take a lot of courage to write about subject matter like this. Matt and other men write for the Goodmen Project and have shared personal struggles too. Much of my writing is about my anxiety disorder with ensuing depression on occasion but like you, it does not define me. I've always hoped when people read my material that they realize, I am not my illness and I too, am high functioning. So, I totally understand what you meant. I've written many articles with the hopes of touching another that may be going through something similar so they understand, we are not alone. My goal is to be part of ending the stigma. Again, thanks for this!

    your story is sad yet, nicely translated about so many's pain and sufferings, not able to cope up to the adverse situation one may confronting with @Jason Baudendistel! but, suicide is the only resort will surely narrow ones vision and that cannot be an axiom for many to follow. however, it is certainly heart rending.

    Hi Jason, I concur with what @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher said and trust you have the help required to stabalize your situation. I talk with experience when I say that adversity can be incredibly challenging at times, that life can have mysterious ways in presenting itself at the best of times. This experience and the fact that you have been so transparent with the truth tells me that you are comfortable with yourself, you will have strengthened yourself through the process and perhaps you will go on to help others in similar circumstances?

    Short and to the point @Jason Baudendistel. I'm sorry things got so bad that suicide felt like your only way out. Did you get the help you needed after the 72 hr suicide watch was over? Keep focusing on the plans that lie ahead and the idea that plans can change but that's not always a bad thing. Through struggles we either swim or sink. I'm glad you are still swimming and ended up back on shore! Thanks for sharing this, there is no shame in sharing when the brain becomes ill.

    #10 Jason, you provide LinkedIn coaching. There would be something wrong if you didn't generate business on LinkedIn. You have a captive audience of LinkedIn users who have the budgets to engage your services. I would bet dollars to donuts that the majority of your clients are not major corporations but entrepreneurs and small businesses. This is very different from other service categories that operate in the B2B space. Usually, they have no interaction with the decision makers. I am not even going to ask what cannabis has to do with all of this or touch that one with a 10 foot pole.

    Marijuana i believe does have the medical effects you mentioned. We need to go back to the beginning when legislative efforts and films produced in the mid 1900's that created a belief that "drugs" caused senility. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yKvP7gD3XI View more
    Marijuana i believe does have the medical effects you mentioned. We need to go back to the beginning when legislative efforts and films produced in the mid 1900's that created a belief that "drugs" caused senility. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yKvP7gD3XI Funny stuff.

    We have lived with alcohol and its entertaining/devastating uses. We have laws, and society has accepted some form of responsibility in its use and affects in various settings. Marijuana though has been established as an "illegal" drug.

    When we speak to legalizing the product then we must also address all the regulations, policies (Public and Private) and insurance policies that have long been unsupportive of illicit drugs in the workplace.

    Colorado businesses are now having to sort this out. Most businesses have a drug policy and their insurance carriers expect the policy to be enforced. Now that it is legal in their state how do you enforce a policy that use to check if any was present to now understanding that like alcohol it was just used in the recent past, not necessarily today?

    I'm a personal fan but in a business format it's a little scary in dealing with employees on any drug that affects their performance, specifically in judgement and safety. Close

    It allows our senses to mingle with the feel-good factor which we otherwise have forgotten about it's existence. That feel-good factor gives a huge high to our confidence and the feeling of that joy is indescribable. Even me being a creative person I love playing with resources available. One of the instance which I could remember is of an auspicious night where my brother bought a huge basket of lillies to decorate our house. Majority went with a string but I with my creative energy took the matter in my hand by decorating it in a unique way. I tried highlighting the shape and size of those exquisite and fragrant beings with the help of sellotape.

    You helped me unleash my creative juices where I sometimes try my level best to hide from others. Thanks for this wonderful gift, @Anel Marx

    #6 Failure is normal Lisa until that is we make it abnormal through personal branding and social judgement. The key part that I focus on from Anel's comment is trial and error, process shapes end result therefore trust the process, also as she says the moments that surprise us and thus being more open to this surprise and delight. I too enjoy the learning that comes from failure and I really do like most of all Anel's closing - progress not perfection. In a world that is tailor made for prejudice, creativity is the get out of social jail card and failure is also a great friend of creative response. We should not separate success and failure unless our desire is to live an abnormal existence, outside of that abnormality we will point failure as abnormal, but inside of us is where this abnormal existence becomes abnormal. It is our own soul that knows what is whole and what has become cultural prejudice.

    If there is not a renaissance in humanity with the promise of what may well have been a mythical "golden age", the renaissance in craft is huge, it is here and this buzz is exemplary of it. What matters here above the elements of creativity is the re-emergence of craft, that was particularly curtailed by the industrial age. This craft is detailed here as a personal story and it is also prevalent in the rise of D.I.Y. practices. Today it is expanding with the arrival of sexy new technologies like 3D Printing, but the essence of it is the same energy and purpose described by Anel Marx. Beyond what gets shared at Pinterest, there is digital scaling of craft through places like Etsy https://www.fastcodesign.com/3042352/how-one-knitter-makes-almost-1-million-a-year-on-etsy

    While one might not see the connection between sowing and hand-crafts and 3D printing, the bigger connection of this craft revival (helped also by instructional videos on you-tube) is the rise of the "maker movement" http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brit-morin/what-is-the-maker-movemen_b_3201977.html and once people are a part of this maker culture, they can combine resources and scale.

    This element of creativity is one of the most positive effects of the rise of the Internet, and to keep focusing on what we have lost through internet and mobile communications, does a great disservice to those whose value now can be seen as they share their love of crafts, as is being shared here and recognizing that as the fastco article shows, this is not just a hobby anymore, it is a whole community, as well as new paths manufacturing and the return of the hand as a symbol of being human. I love this as much as I detest the mentality of focusing only on personal brand. This should be what the greater spirit of beBee should be about.
