i hate my image so damn much and don't wanna show myself on social media ever because of my securitys my self hate and the fear that always seem to stick right beside my anxiety
Idk its weird to say but i don't even care what people think of me at all... But I do care what I think of me idky but its so damn strong abd I don't know why
Its not even the people its literally just me and my stupid thoughts that I can't seem to shake off showing myself to others tho, I'll say it sure does makes those thoughts float around more and more and I feel so messed up inside... I don't know why I can't accept myself enough I t H u r t s
Tho i really do lowkey love exposing myself in the making so now I'm kinda just gonna 👀
drew this without even looking at myself.. Thanks to the anxiety and from myself pin pointing everything on myself-- I can remember what my ugly ass face looks like without even having to look at a picture or a mirror... Sorry just not having a good day with my image, with myself today just like everyday but today, today i extremely hate myself i hatemyself so much more.. And I can't seem to know the reason as to why... Like Why.. Why am I like this to myself.. I hate it, I hate it so damn much
For all those interested in a first glance of how a human being will look like - let’s say in 10.000 years from now - on the streets of Rome - possibly a solar human being then, here is the appropriate exercise in prognostics: „Sit up straight. Go with your attention to your heart. Open your heart by thanking you for everything you are. Ask for protection and blessings for your experiment. Allow the ball of attention at your heart grow bigger and bigger. Make sure that he stays bright and complete. Let him grow as big as the earth. Sense the pulse beat from the inside to the outside. Then go with your attention to Italy, to Rome, at the beginning of the city. (to America, to New York, at the beginning of the city; to Japan, to Tokio, at the beginning of the city, etc.). Let yourself carry (drift) a little further with each pulse beat of the earth. Watch the city, remember everything. Loosen your attention. Let the ball of attention grow smaller and smaller again, until he has the initial size at heart. Thank you for the protection, then return into the room with your attention and be completely here. Report.“ The task once was created by Rainer Strücker (R.I.P.). The pic originally posted by @scifi.inside
p.s. try the task with Rome. Rome is still built on seven hills (the founders were the Troy elite trying to build the supposed capital of their new empire as high as possible - to avoid any direct attacks from beach level) and will last much longer than New York or Tokio: both are much more easier taken down in the future e.g. by the rising of sea level or by giant tsunamis (e.g. the Canarian volcano of La Palma only has to explode in a massiv way and NY will be under water - we don’t have to wait for the sea level rising due to climate change). Last recommendation: if you perceive sth, it will be the heart beat of Gaia, every 5 to 6 seconds boooom......boooom, then pics will appear, every 5 to 6 seconds and suddenly it will end, end of Rome.
There were a few people when I told them I was going back to study raised their eyebrows at me 🤨 ‘why have the stress of working and studying’ they asked?! What could I say aside from 🤫!! I’d found something that really wanted to do ✨I was fascinated and loved the counselling and psychotherapy foundation courses I had done and at the same time I’m not training to be an Imago (relationship) Therapist too ✨ In fact, I am so happy I didn’t let their own opinions/fears and insecurities make me doubt my desire to study #psychotherapy
as I am loving it and wouldn’t want to be doing anything else with my future 😍 Don’t let people’s judgements impact the path you’ve decided to go down, your path is perfect for YOU 😘🙌🏼 #haveagoodday
In the last few weeks I have been working out & practising yoga way more than usual & my energy levels have sky rocketed🚀
I have gone from 2- 3x a week to doing either gym, boxing or yoga everyday
👊🥊🙏❤ I have been pushing myself to go even when slightly tired & it's giving me more energy pushing through.
I have still been taking care though to recognise when I really need rest & to relax & those days just do Yoga.
Also I have been eating ALOT more nutritious foods and cutting down alot, almost completely on sugar.
I think that the Reiki I had with @thisvibrantsoul
may have something to do with this also. Since we worked on some serious energy clearing because I was feeling so drained.
Only a month ago I was so tired I could barely get out of bed & make it the shops and back without feeling like I needed to rest & munching everything in hope it would give me energy...it didnt.
BUT now after some self reflection & making some changes mainly with food, sleep & practising yoga more I am feeling GREAT.
Thanks to the universe for making me feel alive again 👊👊 I open my heart to all that is possible. 🚀❤🚀❤🚀❤🚀❤🚀❤🚀❤🚀❤🚀 #wellness #yoga #fatigue #cfs #anxiety #reiki #wellbeing #healing #journey #personaltrainer #yogi #workout #heart #camel #pose #sunshine #nature #move #melbourne #immunesystem

It is often difficult to define what being #happy
means and to different people it will mean different things but there are commonly agreed principles which can make a difference to our level of happiness.
It has been recognised across the world that ‘progress’ should be about increasing human happiness and wellbeing, not just growing the economy.
is often linked to our level of happiness and with #anxiety
being the most common mental illness in the UK, it can be estimated that a huge percentage of our population struggle with being unhappy.
To make a change in your life follow the steps in the picture below.
OCD recovery involves changing life philosophies to become more accepting and less black and white thinking that fuels anxiety through strongly held irrational beliefs. Taking the path to OCD recovery is not overnight, it takes practice, practice, practice. It is not rocket science either it’s much simpler than you think but harder than we wish it would be. OCD recovery is a process that takes months not 24 hours. In all the years of working with severe OCD sufferers and being one myself I have never seen an overnight recovery, it doesn’t work like that. Recovering from OCD is a bit like working a muscle you never knew you had, an “uncertainty” muscle and an “acceptance” muscle. With regular exercise these muscles get stronger and are what lead to anxiety recovery. You don’t get in great shape at the gym in 24 hours the same as you don’t recover from OCD in 24 hours but with regular workouts you soon get in great mental shape 💪🙂
This was a very scary time for my family and I. The stress and anxiety had gotten very bad in my life. My back pain was unbearable and I was taken pills every 3-4 hours. I thought I had a stroke and my doctor had me take a test to make sure I was ok. This was a very sad time in my life, not working because of a work injury that my company til this day refused to pay me workers compensation. No income, depression, and all my so called friends began to disappear. I never want to be in this position ever again. @optimumnutrition @bodybuildingcom #250kchallenge #depression #sadness #overweight #herniateddisc #backpain #anxiety #2015
I used to be so uncomfortable in my own skin. If I could hear a room was busy I wouldn’t be able to walk into it unless I was with someone. I didn’t have a lot to say for myself, out of pure fear about what others would think. When I was in a conversation with someone I could barely listen to them because I was too busy trying to figure out how to stand and hold myself without looking awkward. And then I would go over that conversation in my head all day convincing myself I had said something stupid and then beat myself up about it. I used alcohol at parties so that I could actually open up and talk to people without feeling uncomfortable.
I doubt anyone would have realised this looking at me, it was all inside my head.
I also don’t think any of this is particularly unusual, most people go through it at some stage. I’ve spent the last three years literally stretching out all of my anxieties through Yoga, and with the help of @onemanplan
, who has helped me step by step let go of my irrational fears through love.
It’s not easy and there’s still years and years worth of work to do, to undo the conditioning of my mind but I am so grateful to be working through this, to be growing and evolving into myself.
There is no short cut to self belief (believe me if there was I would have taken it 😅🙈) it just takes a lot of self enquiry and introspection. But I promise you it’s worth it 💛
Commit to it and commit to yourself.
Your playing small doesn’t serve the world-
We are all born to shine 😊✨

I honestly have no idea what to post so I think I might just ramble a little bit maybe.
I feel like I’ve whinged and complained to everyone who will hear me, about how I feel completed overwhelmed and swamped by work. I swear my anatomy subject could count as two, so I’m kinda do 5 subjects worth of work, which works out being 55 hours of study a week, plus tutoring 4 first years, plus working at the pizza shop 2-3 nights a week, and then trying to maintain a relationship, friendships, go to appointments for drs and psychs, contribute to my family and household and get 8 hours sleep. And the last two days I’ve severely neglected my physical health which I’m terrified will have long term consequences. I can’t even go to a bloody funeral because I have too much going on. It makes me feel awful.
I feel like a failure for not being able to have enough time in the day to get everything done, for not doing it perfectly, for not being productive every minute of every day. Because other people can do this can’t they? Why can’t I?
We give thanks because of who God is, not because of anything that we are. Life is too short and God is too good. You may be looking at a situation that’s a “far stretch” for you to handle. The pressure literally makes you feel like you’re going to snap—but God Almighty is so gracious and merciful to see you through.
He is so awesome to give you the victory in the middle of it. Peace in the storm. Answers in the midst of questioning. Joy for mourning. That is your portion today. We don’t just call on God for peace or joy or clarity, but we already HAVE it through Jesus Christ.
It’s there to bend you and not break you. For every Warrior to reach the next level or see the next sunrise, he/she must first slay their giants and reach their mountaintop. Have you ever thought that your breakthrough, the victory, the relief is not just on the other side, but it’s right there in the pit? Right there in front of you trying to take your sword?
Don’t be so quick to reach the other side of Heaven that you miss what God’s trying to whisper to you on the ground. We can grasp revelation and a deeper knowing of who God is around ever corner. • 🙌🏻
You are blessed and not cursed in Jesus Name. What the enemy meant to harm you God will use for your good and His glory. Those reckless decisions that you allow to trip you up will no longer be your comfort and hiding place. Tell your battle about your GOD, and watch Him turn tables and slay enemies on your behalf. We were given life to show others how strong it can be lived. God has not forgotten about you. He is googly eyed over you. 😍
It seems quiet during this time of your life because the Lord is removing, preparing, shifting and shaping everything on your behalf. What’s pushing against you can feel like you’re on the edge of cracking— but it’s only going to shed the deeper things in you to make room for what’s greater in you. Press through and push through. Suit up so you can thrive on over to victory. It’s not a joke. It’s an everyday battle meant to be slayed. • ⚔️
Instead of indulging in the temptation to sin, being that one to complain or gripe ::: PRAISE your way through to the other side of hope.
FEELING LOW. This week has not got off to a great start. I’ve said before, I’m struggling with my anxiety. This weekend I woke with a sore throat and I’m struggling with swallowing which makes me panic and forget somehow how to swallow. I’ve still got my tinnitus as well which could be due to an infection past my ear drum maybe. But these symptoms make me panic more and then they get worse. I am trying to take steps to manage it. However nothing is an over night fix. I’m wondering if I should just give in to medication for a while to put me back on track. Anyway this morning i feel a little lost. With myself. I was up late so not had breakfast and I hate eating on my own and I think we’ve abused grandmas hospitality long enough sows was come for breakfast at the coffee shop where I feel comfy. Alone yet not lonely.
There's more to you than your illness, diagnosis or issues... You're deserving of all the good there is - relationships, friendships, work, money and so much more.
Let no one make you settle or feel less because of what they say you are.
Never again will you settle for less than you deserve. Affirm it.
Looking forward to meeting you at #SafePlace
monthly mental health support group this Sunday March 25th in #Lagos
(1pm) and #Ibadan

"• Know that every feeling you have is normal and natural,
• Have the courage to face these feelings and admit them to yourself. You will diminish their strength once you do so (...),
• Have compassion towards yourself for these feelings, and know that you're doing the best you can..." Fragment from The Courage To Be Creative by Doreen Virtue.
For a long time I was running away from my feelings. I kept myself extremely busy with work and social life because I didn't want to get to the point where I had a chance to feel. And once I stopped and allowed myself to look at them I couldn't even name them.
Feelings are something scary, they make us feel uncomfortable. We don't know how to deal with them. We are taught to keep our feelings and emotions inside. And yet it's the healthiest thing we can do for ourselves to express them. And the most beautiful too. Because we have to know the negative feelings in order to appreciate the positive ones.
So how do you feel? What feelings do you feel specifically? Can you name them? Or maybe you are afraid of them and you do everything you can to silence them?
