8 Tips to Help Create a Positive Mental Attitude

1. You are powerful.


What we are is far greater, far superior, far more important, and far more mysterious than our mind tries to define. This is why we are far more powerful than we think we are. We are MORE POWERFUL than THE VIRUS itself.


2. Embrace life.

Let go and embrace the moment, whether it contains an obstacle or an opportunity. Stop fussing over small matters...

HIV and Relationship <3

HIV and Relationship When I am in a relationship, I give it my 100%, totally investing in it. But if it doesn’t work, nothing else will, no matter how hard you try. You cannot move ahead with something when there is no hope or try to fix the crack when there are no amends. We were probably not meant to be together. When you have to go away from someone...

Real People Real Stories


I have battled rejection and betrayal
That doesn't stop me from falling in love again 

I have handled depression, violence and suicide
Now, no demon can ever defeat me

I have known loneliness and sadness
Still I find happiness in my solitude

I have been hated, shunned, ostracised
But still my heart is full of love and above all, understanding 

I can be very forgiving
