Hello, friend! If you’ve read one or two of my blogs, you probably already know too much about me. I’m sorry!! Haha. Through my personal stories, I aim to inspire people to love themselves and motivate them to live their best lives. I lay my feelings bare for all of the world to see hoping that being genuine and vulnerable can help anyone who was ever in the same situation as me.
Anyway, that’s enough about myself. I’d like you to meet some fabulous new people! Trust me, you’re gonna love them!
The niche for Inspiration/ Mental Health/ Personal Development here in the Philippines is quite small and it took me quite a while to meet fellow Filipino bloggers who write about similar topics or posts related to what I usually cover in the blog: Inspiration, Mental Health, Growth Mindset and Self-Love.
From inspiring and motivational quotes, to life lessons learned, personal experiences and advice on matters of life or adulthood, these people are generous enough to share a bit of their identities with us. They’re uniquely themselves through their creative content and shining personalities. And I swear, there’s so much to learn from them!
Filipino Bloggers Who Also Write about Inspiration and Mental Health
1. E.M. Borromeo from Positive Lily: A Mental Health Blog
E.M. Borromeo is a college student who’s also an introvert like me. She was diagnosed with bipolar and anxiety disorder and started her blog to share stories about mental health. She also wants to encourage people to speak up about their struggles and not be afraid to share them. Her blog not only aims to spread awareness about mental health, but to inspire hope as well. EM is also a Certified Mental Health First Responder and MHFR Emotional Support Volunteer.
I fell in love the first time I ever visited Positive Lily’s blog. From the calming color palette and the aesthetic interface of her website, you could lose hours scrolling through her titles and reading her blog posts. As someone who’s struggling with my mental health every day, her blog posts really resonate with me. I personally feel like reading blog posts about mental health take off this big burden. It’s comforting to know that someone else in the world can relate to what I’m going through and that my feelings are valid. E.M. also has some resources in her website that anyone can freely access which is just such a big help!
Aaliziyah is also currently a college student. She describes herself as an embodiment of the stereotypes wrapped around her zodiac sign, Gemini. Even if she identifies with the descriptions of a Gemini, she doesn’t want to cage herself in the category because she’s continuously working on improving herself. She can be either passive or aggressive, confident or shy, but also very adaptive, easily blending in with different people. She’s a deep thinker and considers elaborating ideas as a real hobby.
Aaliziyah might be new to blogging, but the type of content she writes about gives me goosebumps. Her posts are not only honest and genuine, but also quite poetic at times. I actually feel like Aalizyah and I have quite similar writing styles because of the fact that our mind works in the same way. I consider myself as an overthinker more than a deep thinker because I tend to think about a lot of different things at the same time, taking them only about 10 feet deep from the surface. Aalizyah on the other hand, has the focus and drive to take things to the ocean floor.
She’s features a lot of interesting people in her blog, opening her platform to share their insightful ideas and beliefs. You can also check out her podcast: Unfiltered Transcriptions in Spotify.
3. Franze Garcia from FranzeSays
Franze is 22-years old from Batangas who also writes about his personal stories. He’s very fond of motivational and inspirational content. He isn’t afraid to write about his thoughts and dreams because he considers his blog as a greener pasture for his mental health. He’s in the process of striving to find the deeper meaning of life and becoming a better person.
Franze is my friend and we’re pretty similar except for the fact that he’s actually had a romantic relationship before. Lucky him. Huhuhu. Anyways, Franze’s blog is quite personal and you’ll get to know him deeper and deeper every time you read one of his posts. He’s a deep thinker and constantly contemplates about life and his existence in the world even when he’s just walking down on a street. I would tease him, but I tend to do the same thing.
4. Sarrah from Sarrah’s Stories
Sarrah is currently an Overseas Filipino Worker (OFW), working as a teacher in Jakarta, Indonesia. Aside from that, she’s also a writer and a traveler. Her blog is a collection of her experiences and stories in her journey of finding love one step at a time. You can find love in many places like your relationship with yourself, with others, with God and through your travels, career and mission. She describes life as a never ending cycle of learning, inspiring and working.
Sarah also posts positivity quotes in her Facebook page and has already published her first fictional book online titled: Mergalio and the Seven Puffins – Book 1: The Clamors of SklavoiS. Amazing, right? She continuously shares her stories in her blog and from reading them, you’ll get glimpses of life told from unique perspectives. She’s not afraid to be personal with her readers, always being her authentic self and choosing resilience despite life’s challenges.
5. Val from Good Talks with Val
Val has a huge following in Facebook where he regularly posts related inspirational and motivational quotes about life. He has quite the aesthetic on how he curates his posts from the pictures and the fonts he chooses to his captivating captions. His quotes always grab your attention as you’re scrolling through your Facebook feed. I swear you can’t help but give his posts the “Love” or “Care” emoji. I honestly don’t know where he pulls all that material from! Make sure to like his page. You won’t regret it!
Hey Hay PH is another page in Facebook with a huge following. Hey Hay PH provides a platform for Filipinos where they can learn about mental illnesses and broader their understanding about mental health. The warm color palette of their brand is soothing and memorable. They also regularly post relatable quotes on inspiration and self-love. They provide easily-digestible content on how to take care of your mental health which is very helpful during this time with the COVID-19 pandemic and quarantine. If you haven’t liked their Facebook page already, you should do so right now!
What did I tell you? Aren’t they amazing? So make sure to check out their blogs and like their Facebook pages. More great content will be coming from them so we better be on the look out for that!
I think our generation right now at this current time is really putting emphasis on inspiration, self-love and taking care of our own mental health. And, it’s nice to see bloggers and people out there spreading not only about positivity, but about being vulnerable and human as well. I think we’re all just trying to learn to love and appreciate ourselves more and more each day. And, I hope that makes us better as a people.
