Bad things happen to good people. It’s a fact. Why? God has a plan for all of us. Everything happens for a reason. • Today at work, I was working when a kid and his dad walked up with him. This kid was sort of new, but he’s been there for a few weeks. Anyway, the dad told me his son was really upset. Me, working at a tutoring place, immediately thought, oh okay, he just really doesn’t want to be here because, you know, it’s not every kids favorite place to go in the world. That’s totally normal, okay. But then I could tell something was different. I looked at the dad and he said, “You know he has Aspergers right? All the noise and other kids are too much for him. Last time we had to leave because of that.” Oh wow, I thought, I never considered that, but it makes sense. Anyway, the kid started crying and knowing that he was struggling with that, I was able to help distract him and make him comfortable enough to where we eventually got on to his work like usual. If I came across that situation before my struggles, I wouldn’t have known what to do. Now, however, I may not have Aspergers, but I surely have cried in panic in public places before. I know what that feels like. I felt so happy that I made a connection with this little boy. He doesn’t talk much and I realized that he started opening up to me more in general lately. Working there for a year now, I’ve experienced a lot of moments like this. I’ve sat with a crying elementary school kid who was determined that he was so stupid that he would never amount to anything. I talked to him for 30 minutes trying to convince him that he’s more than just his grades. And I turned in another elementary kid one time who wrote how he wanted to die all over his papers. That one really crushed me because I had a pretty close relationship with him. My point is, I went through my struggles. At the time, I didn’t know why God was putting me through it all, but now I’m seeing some of the light. Not only did I help those kids, but I’ve had many others speak to me after I’ve shared my mental health story with them and I was able to help them. Essentially, God put me through all of that so I could help others overcome it💕

Gotta let that shit go, honey. 💁‍♀️ It's time to move on. Repost via @sheisrecovering
So I went to Metro Diner for lunch today with my friends and since breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, I got breakfast for lunch and it was really good :) • My last time at Metro Diner was a bad experience for me with my eating disorder, but this time, I ordered food that I felt more comfortable eating and yes, it was a pretty large portion, but I successfully ate it without purging. One thing my dietitian challenged me to do lately (that my therapist has been trying to get me to do for awhile) is to not count calories. Yes, I knew that this portion was probably over my calorie “limit” given numbers that I already know, but I never checked it or recorded it. Usually I check calories as much as I can and track my total for the day and even week sometimes, but I didn’t do that today. Yeah, challenging yourself is uncomfortable, but that’s expected. But it’s also a step closer to full recovery💕
Listened to Florence & the Machine’s newest album for the first time today and came across this really profound lyric: “And it's hard to write about being happy, cause the older I get I find that happiness is an extremely uneventful subject.” Woah. There’s a lot to unpack there. - Unhappiness is what brought me to all of you reading this in the first place. I was lost and confused, pained and beaten down by mental illness, body image issues, and trauma. When we talk about those difficult things, we are met with a chorus of people giving us their condolences, maybe whispering about how we’ve gone “crazy,” or perhaps pitying us. Sadness is eventful. It’s something to talk about. When bad things happen, that’s when we open our mouths. - But think about how often we praise happiness. When something good happens to someone, do we first feel a sense of happiness for them? Or do we experience emotions of jealousy, resentment, or regret? - The same goes for a healing journey. People who don’t understand what it took to get to where you are now won’t be there to applaud you. Not that you’re asking for it. But the happiness you’re experiencing might not be understood. So it might not be seen as anything special. - But then there are those of us here, those who get it. Those who want to lift each other up, providing support and advice as we press on against all of the fears and doubts in our minds that try to pull us back down to the hole we dug ourselves into to hide from the pain we felt like we couldn’t control. I’ve been so grateful for the outpouring of support I’ve received from family, friends, and strangers since starting this account. I will never again think I am a single voice. There is a chorus behind me, advocating for the same things I am, finding ways to be inspired, and constantly fighting this good fight to bring happiness, peace, and joy back to our own lives. - “And here you are, living, despite it all.” You’ve made it this far. You won’t go back. Because the chorus behind you is there, ready to catch you when you fall and lift you back onto the path towards happiness. Accept the love you deserve. Don’t even think twice about it.

Every night these two take up more and more space in my bed 😂🙄 I was woken up several times in the night being whacked round the face by a sleep-punching Ben.. not long until Joe is home and they go back to their own beds 😂 it’s been lovely having them in my bed though whilst we’ve been on our own, but I’m looking forward to having a night’s sleep without clinging onto the edge of the bed like my life depended on it 🙃 . . . . . . . #momblogger #momlife #momblog #familyblogger #familyblog #family #parenting #parents #parentblogger #parentblog #lifestyle #lifestyleblogger #lifestyleblog #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblog #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #love #happiness #inspiration #blog #blogger #mumlife #mummyblog #mummyblogger
There’s something to be said for blooming where you are planted. When fame and fortune don’t come your way, or when perhaps you feel you are overlooked (as I often do) it is important to remember you are extraordinary in your ordinary little world. Bloom and be beautiful no matter who is watching! God knows you and me by name and we are special because he made us!
#DidYouKnow Pica (pie-ka) is an eating disorder that “causes you to eat things that aren’t food, like paper, clay, paint chips, dirt, hair” etc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Pica can cause serious problems if the items you eat get caught in your intestines, poison you, or cause an infection.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Pica is more common in pregnant women, children, and people with intellectual disabilities, autism, or schizophrenia.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Source: merckmanuals.com 💛 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fun fact: I first learned about pica on a Law & Order: SVU episode! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #pica #picadisorder #picaeatingdisorder #eatingdisorders #eatingdisorderawareness #mentaldisorders #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealing #youarenotalone #confidentialsupport #togetherwearestronger #NLB #notthelastbreath
Tackling a 10 hour road trip today from Connecticut to West Virginia. Heading to some climbing and boating with friends. This marks me being half way done with my summer position. It gives me time for a breather and time to reflect. I’m also getting grumpy. Driving. Getting up early. Being antsy about getting there can do that to a person. But with frequent stops and switching driving it hasn’t been difficult to manage. Plus my copilot is pretty cool 😎
This is one of the biggest reasons why I think mental health should be more acceptable to talk about and it doesn't make sense to me why sometimes mental illness is seen as such a taboo subject. The brain is a vital organ of the body, and just like any other organ of the body, the health and care of the brain is such an important part of our wellbeing and problems in the health of our minds can surface and do damage to our bodies as well as our lives. Mental illnesses are just as important and relevant as physical illnesses, and the care of our minds is just as important and should be talked about just as much as the care of our bodies. While mental health can be affected by behavior, trauma, childhood and socio-economic situations, much of mental health can be affected by the chemistry of our brains and our physical health. The health of our brains and bodies are interconnected, and there are several ways we can take care of our bodies that also may improve our mental health. The brain is just like any other organ of the body. It can face problems that affect our wellbeing just as much as other organs of the body. There is nothing to be ashamed of about a mental illness, just like there's nothing to be ashamed of about a physical illness. Don't be afraid to take care of yourselves 💖 • What do you think? Do you think mental health is the same level as importance as physical health? Do you think the two interconnect? Comment below!
In all honesty, it wasn’t until I met Dru (and she sat me down and explained this to me) that I really grasped the fact that nobody is perfect.💁🏼‍♀️ • Growing up, I never really heard any adults tell me when they made a mistake or when they were wrong, only when I was; I think I took this hyper-literally, because I grew up thinking that I was the only one who made mistakes (go figure!)😩 • On the surface this concept sounds so simple, but for the longest time I really didn’t understand why everyone seemed to be doing “fine” but me. They all seemed to be making the “right” choices, at the “right” place and at the “right” time - and I was just lost, without any answers.🙏🏼 • Dru really helped me understand that nobody gets it right all the time - but trying in and of itself is what matters the most. Since I’ve known this, I’ve felt a bit more freedom to make mistakes, to struggle and fail and win sometimes because nobody has the answer key, and that’s okay.💯 • Not to mention, it helps when you have an amazingly supportive partner right by your side. I love you so much, babe!😘
Depression is one of the most isolating experiences. If you are aware that someone in your life is struggling with depression, remember that they are feeling helpless, abandoned, and misunderstood. Even if you cannot understand their pain, make an effort to ensure they aren't abandoned. Reach out, check in, say hello.

🌸🌱🍃Throwback to me being, well...me in some botanical gardens in Hamburg in April🌵🌳 Despite the fact that I was fortunate enough to travel a lot this year, and I think I visited 4 different countries within the space of 2 months, this was the point when I became heavily depressed for the first time. I cannot attribute my depression to one specific factor, however since I’ve been getting better, and since I’ve had a lot (potentially too much🤦🏼‍♀️) time to reflect, and I’ve realised that my unhappiness was caused by trying to find happiness in external sources. I started to feel like I wasn’t good enough, and over the past year I’ve wasted so much money, time, emotions and planning on things which I thought would make me happier and I thought would make me a better person. Whether it be trying to change my appearance, signing up to different things, travelling, investing myself in relationships which weren’t good for me, or just small things like pressuring myself to go above and beyond what was expected - ultimately nothing made me happier, it just made me sadder. I don’t even want to say that I’ve wasted money, emotions or time on different purchases, relationships, experiences or plans, because the outcome is that I have learned that I can’t try to find happiness in other sources. It’s strange to think that a few months ago I could have safely said that I had everything I could have ever wanted - a degree with guaranteed employment, a good amount of savings, great friends, a car, in good physical health, travel opportunities etc etc, yet I was heavily depressed On paper, my life looks so much worse than it was 6 months ago (hello love island pls recruit me👀) - but I am so much happier. It’s actually weird to think how content I am right now, knowing that I should be stressed about everything going “wrong”, but I just don’t see the point in obsessing over little details anymore💁🏼‍♀️ Of course I’m not 100% there, have to stop myself in my tracks to rationalise & avoid getting worked up, but I can safely say that I’m currently at a point where I’m fine with everything right now, and I know that you can be happy regardless of external things😇

This is a visual I recently used with some of my kiddo clients. But I found myself using this too! Sometimes when I get really overwhelmed and I don’t know where to start. I remind myself to pause, breathe to let out some steam, and then think about what needs my attention first. #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #mindfulness #motivation #selfawareness #selfappreciation #selfcare #selfacceptance #mentalhealthblog #mentalfitness #mentalwhealth #mentalhealth #mentalwellness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalillnesswarrior #mentalillnesssupport #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillnessisreal #mentalillnessfeelslike #mentalillness #mentalhealthissues #positivevibes #positivethinking #positiveenergy
Trigger warning ⚠️I posted a screenshot for CalmHarm in my last post. This app allows you to complete a short journal entry after each exercise along with recognising patterns. I’ve attached a journal entry of mine from a while back. (Please note- not recent). My aim is to represent recovery. To represent mindfulness as an aid of recovery. It’s easy to rely on medication and talking therapies alone. But the true recovery has to come from a built inner strength within you. This is why mindfulness is so important. Discovering a purpose can transform you into a beacon of gratitude and strength. I speak of strength a lot. I don’t think I’m strong at all. I think I’m feisty as hell and I’ve fought this long to be here and I’ll carry on fighting 🌟#selfharm #selfharmer #selfharmmm #selfharmrecovery #recovery #depression #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd #journal #calmharm #triggerwarning #mindfulness #meditation #meditatedaily #blogger #blog #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealblogger #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthmatters
What is mental health? What are the mental illnesses? Some think it's stress, others maybe think being mindfucked but everyone uses the glorified word 'depression', no matter what they think is the definition. This term is used so casually that being sad or upset is often and unknowingly replaced by the famous D word. Whereas, mental illnesses include anxiety disorder, eating disorder, personality disorder, mood disorder, OCD, PTSD and etc (Google them). Why doesn't anybody think or say that mental illness is a gradual process, it has steps, one just doesn't get into depression or has mental illness. A lot is going on with that person and that too over a period of time that piles on, leaving him/her in their current state. So I feel we should address the journey and not the end, we should take a backward journey step by step and solve each problem before it turns into a disaster for the both the person and the ones close to them. And depression is an illness and like all illness it also requires a professional. So therapy/counselling is a must and don't let the negative thoughts build inside you. Let out your emotions at every stage. For example- if you're stressed, then discuss it with your peers If you're angry, then let it out to whoever you're angry at Even if nobody is listening, you will feel light, like a huge burden is off your shoulders, you'll definitely be more at peace with yourself and will be able to rationalize the situation better. Hope none of you have had to battle depression (or still are battling) but if you do, try what I suggested and let me know ( in comments) if it worked for you. Also tell me what does work for you? People have said the same thing but never really discussed it. We are aware of it but are still skeptical about it. So let's take our step and discuss it.

Today, I’m thankful for the opportunity to wake up at 4am and run 5 miles. Running became a scapegoat for my mental illness when I was in high school. I would choose to run, instead of resorting to self-harm or whenever I was feeling anxious or depressed. Running helped make my mental illness much more bearable. Running has been a saving grace and it’s definitely something that gets me through my trials. I’m thankful for the chance to find hope in the little things, such as running. I hope all you mighty mental health warriors can find hope today💙;💙 #mentalhealth #hope #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #invisiblewounds #hopefortheday #hopes #messageofhope #youareloved #findhope #wearethehopefulones #love #selflove #selfcare #whyirun #running #run

What is A Mental Health Survival Kit?: To me, a Mental Health Survival Kit is a collection of items that can help a person cope with their mental illness. . What Type of Items Are in My Kit?: There are two types of items in my kit: 1) Items that help me cope with anxiety. 2) Items that I need due to my obsessive compulsions. .

I mostly post positive pictures of myself outside and smiling, but as you know I suffer from mental health issues and some days are really hard. Like most people do, I choose to share what I want you to see, which is the glorified version of my life. . . But I don’t want to pretend that my life is always okay. It has its ups and downs and I believe that there’s beauty in authenticity. There’s beauty in hard times just as there’s beauty in good. This photo is from one of the hard times and admittedly, it’s really difficult for me to put this out there but I feel that it’s a part of me I shouldn’t be so ashamed about. . . I want to learn to love myself for who I am and that requires challenge. So here’s to challenging myself by showing you a part of me most people don’t see😝 . . . .

Illusion ▫️ When we think of the word illusion, we tend to think of the person that performs great tricks that deceive the eye. While this is true there is a deeper reality about those that walk amongst us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They are highly intelligent, charismatic, and thrive on being seen well by others. As long as there’s an audience they are “on”. In public these people are who we want to be around. Behind closed doors they are someone entirely different. I have experienced two of these people in my own family and another that professed their love for me in my life time. The scary part is, it’s an illusion to think I haven’t met more. ▫️ “Losing an illusion makes you wiser then finding a truth.” ~ Ludwig Borne ▫️ #illusion #deceive #putonashow #false #losing #wiser #seethetruth #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #stigmafree #stigma #ptsd #anxiety #depression #mymentalhealth #healing

This is a symptom of bpd that I don’t hear mentioned that often and I wonder if people relate. Examples: •Joining a gym, going 5 days a week for a while then you just stop, nah, lost interest. •Considering buying a pet so you buy all the equipment then decide actually no, bad idea, lost interest. •Starting an art project, thinking you could actually sell the crafts as they are quite good, buy all the bits to only get bored and not bother, lost interest. •Having a massive sort out in your home cause you’re feeling extra productive only to get half way through and get overwhelmed. So you stop, lost interest. These are just some of the things I do a lot that show I struggle to stick to one thing. I’m really awful at finishing what I started as most of the things I start are done through impulse and once that impulse has disappeared, I loose interest very quick. It can be a pain as I spend a lot of money on specific things and then decide I don’t want to do it anymore. It’s very much black and white, all or nothing behaviours. But, it also has its positives because I am passionate about things and I put my all into everything, even if it is for a moment at least I’m always learning and keen to try new things. But I’m learning to correct this black and white thinking style but trying to delay my ideas for a few days before acting on them. It has helped massively. Does anyone with #BPD relate or is this just a weird thing I do?

My therapist recommended meditation to help with anxiety. 5 minutes, twice a day. I just did my first session using the Insight Timer app. It's surprisingly hard to stay focused on breathing for more than like 0.2 seconds. But I'll keep working on it. #anxiety #socialanxiety #mentalhealthblog #insighttimer #monkeybrain #justbreathe
