Guess​ I have been strong my entire life #suicidal #suïcidalthoughts #depression #pain #strong
Chilling with my dying cat. At almost 19, the cat has stopped eating and drinking and can barely move. He doesn't seem to be in pain, just more like he is drifting further and further away from me. I have always referred to him as "the man in my life" or my "boyfriend" because he has been my companion and BFF for the last 19 years. He has been there for me like no other man, he has let me cover him in tears like no other man and he has shown me more respect than any other man I have been with. I have a serious problem with falling for narcissistic assholes. But, I digress, I am sitting here loosing my best friend. I just feel really lucky that he was able to see me to this point. He has been my greatest comfort, especially while going through the worst abuse, the worst anxiety and the worst depression and so I will cherish this very little time we have left together. #ptsd #ptsdawareness #anxiety #healing #depression #sayinggoodbye #angels #kittyheaven #godgivemestrength
OH my our sweet little boy! 💙
Sometimes I feel like I take the long way around to get things done. Right now I'm working on self-care, something that I wish I'd learned a long time ago. My career is on hold right now because I need to give myself the time to heal. Just because I'm taking a longer time to finish my studies doesn't mean I'm wondering what could've been if I'd not had set backs. It just means I needed more time. I am working towards being the me I want to be. #namaste #inspiration #gratitude #youarenotalone #youarewithme #youarebeautiful #believeinyourself #depression #anxiety #ptsd #cptsd #suicide #suicideprevention #ptsdrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealthawareness #arttherapy #serenity
I tried on a swimsuit and when I came out, my brother was in the room and he kept asking me what the "marks" on my legs where from but my mom and I just kept saying it was nothing...
We talk a lot about forgiving others but what about forgiving ourselves? Do you forgive yourself for the harm you've caused yourself? For talking down to yourself and telling yourself you don't deserve anything good in this world? For not eating, for binging and purging, cutting yourself? No? Well you should. I think a lot about the things I've done to hurt myself and it hurts to think about because I deserve better. And I think that one of the most important parts of recovery include forgiving yourself for the harm you've done to YOU. So take this moment, right now. Forgive yourself. You are worthy of your own forgiveness. Be kind to yourself. You deserve it. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨ #recovery #eatingdisorderecovery #eatingdisorder #food #anorexia #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalstigma #forgiveness #depression #anxiety
HOORAY! My first blog post is up (the link is in my bio)!! I chose to focus on my experience when I went to the Emergency Room for my depression and how I felt I was treated unfairly. I hope it gets people talking. . . . #thelotusproject #lotusflower #lotus #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalillness #depression #healthymindset #heal #positivity #positivevibes #selflove #raiseawareness #womenempowerment #strongwomen #strong #staystrong #warrior #loveyourself #liveyourpassion #liveyourlife #graffiti #beach #photography #photooftheday
There was a quote I saw once, something about candles and how they burn themselves up to give others light and i lie in my bed at night and I wonder if ill ever get to be the candle. I wonder if my mother thinks I'm the bright light in every room and i wonder if i walked into someone's life and it jus magically lit up and i wonder if maybe having me around could possibly make someone's life brighter because that is what I aspire to be. After all these years of back and forth wondering what my purpose was and why i was put on this earth I've realized something. i want to be like a candle, i want to give other people light, even if i have to burn myself up to do it.

In the last week terrible stuff happened in this twisted world we live 22 dead fans in a concert with hundreds injured and I offer this ribbon to all victims of the attack and to the one friend ... My only friend #manchester #love #depression
Anxiety and depression is a serious mental illness. Support anyone you can in any which way you can who has these conditions. Coming from personal experience it really does help #anxiety #depression #lifecoaching #supportpeople
"The nutritionalist said I should eat root vegetables. Said if I could get down 13 turnips a day I would be grounded, rooted. Said my head would not keep flying away to where the darkness lives. • The psychic told me my heart carried too much weight. Said for twenty dollars she'd tell me what to do. I handed her the twenty. She said, "stop worrying, darling. You will find a good man soon." • The first pyscho therapist told me to spend 3 hours each day sitting in a dark closet with my eyes closed and ears plugged. I tried it once but couldn't stop thinking about how gay it was to be sitting in the closet. • The yogi told me to stretch everything but the truth. Said to focus on the out breath. Said everyone finds happiness when they care more about what they give than what they get. • The pharmacist said, "Lexapro, Lamicatl, Lithium, Xanax" • The doctor said an antipsychotic might help me forget what the trauma said. • The trauma said, "don't write these poems. Nobody wants to hear you cry about the grief inside your bones." • But my bones said, "Tyler Clementi jumped from the George Washington bridge into the Hudson River convinced he was entirely alone" • My bones said, "write the poems" -Andrea Gibson, the author of my new favourite poem. • • • • #recovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #eupd #bpd #depressionrecovery #anxietyrecovery #ptsd #depression #anxiety #mentalillness #mentalillnessrecovery #anorexia #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #bulimia #ednos #bingeeatingdisorder #prorecovery #togetherwecan #endthestigma #inpatient #inpatientrecovery #positive #poetry #poemsporn
📍India 2011 ||Let's start raising our children to have more self-compassion instead of more self-esteem. The two are surprisingly very different. Dr. Jennifer Crocker, a self -esteem researcher says its not having high self-esteem that is the problem, it's pursuing it, which is usually based on feeling special and above-average or better than others. The best way to think about the problem of self-esteem is not whether or not you have it, but what you do to get it. The other thing is, it's pretty common, at least in American society, that in order to have high self-esteem, you have to feel special and above-average. If someone said, "Oh, your performance was average," you would feel hurt by that, almost insulted. When we fail, self-esteem deserts us, which is precisely when we need it most. And so the problem is we're constantly comparing ourselves to others. We try to puff ourselves up. We have what's called self-enhancement bias, where we see ourselves as better in almost any culturally valued trait. So why self compassion? Simple really. It's treating yourself with the same kind of kindness, care, and compassion, as you would treat those you care about—your good friends, your loved ones. Self-compassion adds the humanistic component.|| #thenomadicpsychotherapist
Sadhana Day 3 Dealing with crisis. 🖤 Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. 🖤 Being in a crisis is an opportunity. Heartbreak is the best teacher you'll ever have. It's an opportunity to see what you were pushing away, what you are habitually hiding. It's like a blindfold ripped off from your eyes. Rude awakening. 🖤 Rude. But awakening nonetheless. 🖤 Take moment. Break your routine. Break your regular flow of same thoughts. Enter your fear. Enter your questions. With patience. With silence. With kindness. Listen. Just listen to yourself. Feel the feelings. #Feel
