Where is this place that I’m trying to GET TO? Am I imagining there’s a reality where I’ll know I’ve finally “made it”? And when I get there I’ll never feel nervous or lacking or doubtful any longer? Oh mind...that place only exists when you stop trying to find it. In fact, it’s been right here inside the whole time...just waiting for you to take a breath and notice your own ridiculousness 😆❤️

What ever life throws at you NEVER lay the beep down! Some people go through life with few challenges some with multiples, most things in life you can neither predict nor maybe change, but in you you have the choice of perspective, choice of adaptation, choice of fight, choice of owning your life. It is within your self the choice of laying down or standing up. My reference is not to fighting other people, my reference is to fighting obstacles and to fu...... own your life. Find joy, find love, find closeness, find freedom, find What makes you tickle inside. Your life your choice. Find the fighter within your self and f... fight. People whom are challenged with life altering experiences, chronic diseases, loss of loved ones, severe bumps on their highway of life they are fighters, you have my respect. Keep fighting, keep loving, keep smiling, keep living. 👊👊👊❤️ WEAREMAXERS #fighter #fight #fighting #power #life #obstacles #strong #nolimits #ownyourlife #neverlaydown #strength #stærk #mentalpower #onlyforward #future #family #stigmafighter #carcrashsurvivor #mentalstyrke #mentor #coach #activeliving #aktiv #aktivlivsstil #styrke #strong #powermom #warrior #guardian #choices #perspective

The world is a reflection of your mental state in that moment 🙏

“I’ve been battling mental illness for as long as I can remember. I guess my struggles really began at age 12 though. When I was 12, my beautiful older sister took her life and my entire world came crashing down. Shortly after my sister’s death, I started self-harming as a way to cope with the unimaginable pain. I struggled for many years with depression, anxiety, and PTSD. At 16, I had my first suicide attempt.” – Courteney’s Story💛✨// Link in bio to read Courteney’s full story. • “November 8th is my most recent attempt. It has now been three weeks and I still struggle every single second. Most days I don’t know how to breathe. I don’t know how to be in this world. I don’t know how to keep going with so much pain. I didn’t expect to still be here. I question why I survived when so many don’t. I don’t feel worthy. I don’t feel like I deserve to be on this earth. But I am here. I’ve survived all of the days I thought I wouldn’t. I’m still breathing. I’m taking it second by second. I can tell you I will be here another birthday and another Christmas, when a couple weeks ago I couldn’t tell you if I’d be here another minute.” So grateful you exist and proud of your bravery. Thank you @courteneyrene 💛 #narrativesofhope #ownyourstory

When your head hits the pillow tonight, remind yourself that you’ve done a good job. You are headed down your path at your own pace, and with every obstacle you are trying your utmost best. Be patient with yourself, and remember that big things are achieved not all at once, but one day at a time.🌹 . . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmonth #mentalhealthmatters #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #mentalhealthrecovery #depressionawarness #selfharmawareness #yourstoryisnotover #breakthestigma #breakthesilence #stigmafighter #endthestigma #majordepression #mentalwellnessawareness #itsoknottobeok #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthwarrior #hamont

I can’t impress upon this enough. Healing is a process and no two processes are the same. Love yourself through your healing. Be forgiving toward yourself. Celebrate all the milestones, no matter how big or small. If you take 10 steps forward, you may take 11 steps back, but you don’t have to unpack and live there. You CAN do this. You CAN heal. You CAN recover. Find a great support system to lean on until you’re strong enough to lean on yourself. Sending love.

So it’s Tuesday, and the work week JUST started. And you’re mentally and physically exhausted — mental health struggles will do that to you. I used to beat myself up for cancelling plans with family and friends because I couldn’t bear the thought of one more second of overstimulation. I’ve since learned to be nice to myself. I thought about how I would handle the situation if someone else bailed so that they could recharge — I realized I would be understanding and forgiving. So why can’t I do that for myself? I cut my self-hatred and guilt in half when I admitted to myself that “I just don’t want to go” and that “I need to recharge.” There is nothing wrong with taking care of yourself. Those who love you will understand, and if they don’t, they aren’t worth the stress.

I struggle with this a lot. My OCD relates to needing to know the answer to everything even before it happens. I have a compulsion for understanding, knowledge, figuring everything out, always knowing the answer and answer and what is next. I have to remind myself everyday to take my time — to enjoy the ride — to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Step by step and before you know it, you’ll have reached the top of the mountain and enjoyed the view on the way to the top.

Sometimes that tiny victory could be that you got out of bed today. That tiny victory could be that you sat down in a coffee shop and read a book. Maybe you jumped out of a plane. Whatever victory, no matter how big or small, celebrate it. Reward yourself. Acknowledge your strength. Look back and see how far you’ve come. For me, in the beginning if my treatment, just taking a shower was an achievement. Love yourself, love your progress, and rather than beating yourself up for your shortcomings, celebrate your victories. Positive reinforcement.

An anonymous donor will match up to $40,000 of your donations dollar for dollar between today and 12/31 at Midnight! Why? Because this donor believes in Step Up’s mission! Freedom Rock is one of the veterans who has lived at Building 209 since its inception. With your support, Step Up provides permanent supportive housing, vocational services and a sense of belonging to those men and women who have served in the military. Building 209 is home for 54 veterans and is the only building on the West LA VA campus that provides permanent supportive housing for formerly homeless veterans in the United States. Donate in the link in bio and support others like Freedom Rock!

Let the next step inspire you instead of scare you. Step forward for you, for your future, for the beautiful uncertainty of life. You CAN do this. You CAN be whoever you want to be. Love life and open your heart so that it can love you right back ❤️

I think this has been the hardest thing for me to focus on until now. I received my official diagnoses two years ago. In the last two years, I spent so much time focused on all of my issues and problems that I wasn’t able to ENJOY my road to recovery. Mental illness is not something that you can cure — but you can heal. And true healing means LIVING with whatever diagnoses you may have. Two years ago, I couldn’t find a way to even step into the shower without an overwhelming fear of being alone with my own head. Today, I am on a flight to Denver for work through the end of the week. I have never been to a Colorado, and wanted to explore over the weekend, so I spontaneously booked a quick solo-ski trip to Breckenridge. I couldn’t be more proud of myself — for how far I’ve come, for what I’ve endured, survived, and how I continue to fight through life. Don’t be afraid to stop and catch your breath, you never know what you’re capable of doing — or enjoying until you try.

How can you go from living off the streets to tech. CEO? I was terrified of being sent back to my country... said Mariéme Jamme when the police raided her tube station where she lived on the streets of Paris, after being trafficked from Senegal as a young girl. Mariéme created @i_amthecode where she teaches young girls to code and is also using her story to inspire others to take charge in their own life!

I know this is universal, but I think those that struggle with mental illness should read this, and read this again. There is truth in this statement. We must hold onto the place in us that is strong and resilient, even though we know we’ll fall again at some point.

Isaac: so much more than a “downs baby”...like his 5 siblings before him - it’s looking like his first “word” is the same...🤷🏽‍♀️☺️ #stigmafighter #shouttheirworth #hollandtourguide #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #blessed

I remember reading 📖 these words from Brene Brown’s book over 6 years ago. This sentence changed my life.⠀ ⠀ I spent most of my life trying to choose which feelings I didn’t feel. I’ll take all the joy, and happiness and fulfillment I thought, but say NO THANKS ✌️to my fear, loneliness and anxiety. ⠀ ⠀ I numbed it in various ways- typically with drinking, drugging, bingeing, purging, overeating, isolating... etc....you get it. The problem is, we can’t selectively numb our feelings. When we numb the PAIN, we numb the JOY. When we dim our light💡, everything goes dark. But alas, I tried and failed again and again to prove that I was the exception to this statement. ⠀ ⠀ Once I finally accepted this, my life began to change. No I did not get sober right away, but I became mindful about what I was doing and what I was trying to NOT FEEL. I stopped shaming myself for being a human being with feelings and started to get curious about how I could take care of myself.⠀ ⠀ And most importantly I became ✨VULNERABLE✨ with others, which allowed me to create authentic connections. For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel alone. ⠀ ⠀ Whatever you’re going through today, wherever you are on this journey, I want you to know that I see you 👏I respect the hell outta you. Healing isn’t for the faint of heart. And the temptation to give up can be strong, especially around the holidays🎄 ⠀ Tag a badass friend to share this with today!👊 We cannot heal and grow alone! ⠀ #brenebrown #daringgreatly #empowerment #odaat

TW SUICIDE: Please stop saying people who talk about being suicidal are looking for attention. It’s this message that stops people from reaching out. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is crucial that we eliminate the stigma associated with suicide and encourage those who are struggling to discuss their feelings and seek help. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even if someone is doing something for “attention,” there’s an underlying reason that needs to be addressed. There is a need that is not being met. They are looking for love, hope, companionship, security, safety. There is a reason they are coming to you. Always remember that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Many people fear they won’t be taken seriously or will be called attention seeking by their friends or family when they reach out. Changing the way we speak about suicidal thoughts is one of the major ways we can help eliminate stigma. I hope you’ll join me in the fight 👋🏻

By the age of 40, 1 in 2 Canadians will have or have had a mental illness. 50% of the population, according to the Mental Health Commission of Canada. . Mental illnesses can happen to anyone. . Genetic, biological, personality, and environmental factors cause mental illnesses. . I am a P.T.S.I. survivor. And the good news is that I found proper treatment and so can you. Believe you can heal. . Raising awareness about the barriers that exist to diagnosis and treatment is an important part of making diagnosis and treatment accessible to Canadians. One of these barriers is stigma or discrimination about mental illnesses. We are trained as a society to believe there is something wrong with people who suffer from mental illness. . But to that I say: FIFTY PERCENT!? That is not wrong or abnormal or weird or freakish. That is a NORMAL human experience. . I am 1 in 2. Are you? . #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessrecovery


[When you start seeing your worth, you will find it harder to be around people that don’t] - It’s funny how many times this has come up in my life recently. People are tricky. Sometimes we want people around that are no longer meant to hold the space they once did. Sometimes we look to people to complete parts of us they were never meant to complete.✨ - Sometimes we need to stand up for ourselves & our worth, & stop making excuses for people who don’t. When you believe in yourself, & you believe in who you can be, you no longer look for things or people to complete parts of you. You look for people to help walk with you & make you the best version of yourself. People that believe in you, & your worth, as much as you do.✨ - And if you are still figuring out your worth, be so very careful of who you surround yourself with. Find people who pull you higher.✨ - Your worth is NOT based on your past. Your worth is based on who you have the potential to be... Hear me again: your worth is NOT BASED ON YOUR PAST, but it is based on who you have the potential to be. And let me tell you a little secret....You have the potential to be anything you want to be. ✨

Can you spot the rainbow? 🌈 When we’re going through a really difficult time it can be hard (maybe even impossible) to see the bright side of things. That’s ok. You don’t need to put on a happy face when life is tough. Sadness, anger and tears are all normal parts of life. Giving yourself this permission—“it’s ok to not be ok”— can be incredibly helpful. 😞 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s also important to surround yourself with people who give you permission to not be ok during these hard times. And if you need extra support then don’t hesitate to reach out to a mental health professional. I know it can be a difficult step to take, but working with a therapist of my own through difficult times has been immensely helpful (yes, us therapists need therapy too!) 🌟 #itsoktonotbeok #rainbow🌈 #therapyworks . . . . . #expat #expatlife #expatliving #grief #hardtimes #selfcare #onefootinfrontoftheother #copingskills #supportsystem #girlgoneinternational #sheisnotlost #expatfamily #igersamsterdam #stormyskies #traveldeeper #globalcitizen #globalnomad #travelphotography #mentalhealthmatters #stigmafighter #recoverywarrior #youarenotalone #grieving #overseaslife

❤️❤️❤️ this. #Repost @makedaisychains ・・・ Examples of being emotionally held are good therapy, a support worker you connect with, a friend you feel connected to, family support, support from a partner, support from animals.... what do you think?

No shame😂😂😂 Ive felt like this when I didnt shower, shave, or brush my teeth. BUT I still went to work and did my best. I walkways worried that my manager might take me aside and give me the bathe regularly talk. I would bathe everyday if i could get out of bed or go to sleep at a decent time or if my kids would sleep through the night..... . @Regran_ed from @nate_fakes - I wonder why. @nate_fakes www.nfakes.com - #regrann . . . #itstimetotalk #itsokbro #dude #itsoktotalk #nokiddingmetoo #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietyrecovery #depressionawareness #selfharmawareness #yourstoryisntoveryet #ptsd #suicideawareness #breakthesilence #stigmafighter #majordepression #endthestigma #breakthestigma #stopthestigma #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #parentwithmentalillness

Very true. Anything that can harm you thrives with secrecy. . @Regran_ed from @thementalgladiator - Do yourself a favour right now. If you are going through a hard time, send the person you trust the most in the world a message and let them know. Maybe you wont find a solution, but making this step, and seeing youre not crazy or weak, and proving to yourself that you dont have to keep it to yourself out of fear and shame, will be a big step on the road to getting better. - #regrann . . . #itstimetotalk #itsokbro #dude #itsoktotalk #nokiddingmetoo #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietyrecovery #depressionawareness #selfharmawareness #yourstoryisntoveryet #ptsd #suicideawareness #breakthesilence #stigmafighter #majordepression #endthestigma #breakthestigma #stopthestigma #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #parentwithmentalillness

a little reminder this holiday season🌟 #narrativesofhope photo: @pimfeels

How much have I sacrificed, how many people have I NOT stood up for (myself included) because I didn’t want to upset anyone or be “unkind”!? 😱 It’s amazing how scary it can be for me to tell the truth. Just to simply say NO. I don’t feel like it. I don’t like what you’re doing. I don’t agree with you😳 Oh mind, how am I going to really and truly LIVE if I’m so busy making sure everyone else is ok with every move I make!? 🙃

My beautiful book displayed on my mantle piece. We all need a bit of SPARKLE😘 It’s that time of the year. The hardest for me, the cold long days and nights and when the depression gets worse. About a month ago I was really feeling it but somehow I’ve been the best I’ve been in the past few winters. I think it’s because I started re-using a tablet I had stopped. This time last year winter was hard but it was also because I was in a job I despised. I am thankful for my fiancé and my best friend along with family who have hold of me when I need it. I have found it hard getting into the Christmas spirit this year probably because I think it’ll be ages until it is here. Winter months can be awful living with any mental illness. Look out for those who have one this time of year especially. I am going to try and read more this month to keep my mind occupied. 💚 #bipolarblogger #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bipolardepression #bipolartype2 #anxiety #anxietydisorder #anxietymemes #anxietyquotes #anxietyrelapse #antipsychotics #medication #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentaldisorder #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthawareness #mentalwellbeing #relapse #recovery #depression #depressionquotes #depressionisreal #medications #stigmafree #stigmafighter

Self love can feel very awkward. Especially if you have been programmed to criticize yourself constantly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You were not born like this. The world makes you self critical. It happens through the messages we’re fed by our family, friends, the media, etc. Little by little, you begin to criticize yourself for the things you are and the things you’re not. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’m a big fan of the compliment yourself challenge. I ask almost all my clients to compliment themselves once per day. When I follow up, I usually get this response, “that was so awkward.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It will be very awkward!! It’s so foreign to you that your brain is like “wait what is this?? I’m not used to this.” You might not believe the compliments at first. That’s totally ok. Just keep doing it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When you are having more positive thoughts, it takes up real estate in your brain. That makes it more difficult to spiral out of control with the negative thoughts. You have learned to believe those negative thoughts. With practice, you will learn to believe the positive ones too. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The awkwardness is just a feeling. It will pass. It is not a sign that you aren’t deserving of the compliment or that it isn’t true. It’s a sign to keep doing it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Compliment yourself at least once today! How does it feel?

How old were you when you thought you had bipolar? Looking back I have no idea how long I’ve had it for. Looking at the traits I have I think I’ve had it since I was a teenager. But like this photo I have pushed through the pain. I want to do more for bipolar so my plan for the new year is to put more into raising money for @bipolar_uk and hopefully continue raising awareness!! I have no idea what I want to do yet so any ideas welcomed! 💚💚💚 (this is when I ran a 10k for bipolar uk) #bipolartype2 #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bipolarblogger #bipolarwarrior #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #stigmafighter #stigmafree #raisingawareness
