This is so true! Knowing how to support your loved one through their healing is one of the greatest gifts you could give them. Educate yourself. Get your own support as it can be very hard to see someone you deeply love suffering. You are not there to fix, save or rescue them! Be there to listen, hold, empathize, nurture, encourage, and simply be. I often tell my clients that it is not just them that needs the support. Their loved ones need to know how to support them. Secondary Trauma is real and can be very difficult for those experiencing it. This is why therapists and any kind of therapeutic practitioner ideally have their own “therapists.” I believe some of the most healing words to can speak to someone in a trauma response are: “I’m hear with you. I will love you through this. You are not alone.” Let’s BE love! #belove #traumahealing #iloveyou #lovelanguages #integrativetherapist #yogatherapy #ptsdrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthquotes

You will hear many people remind you how important self-care is. Take time to know and love yourself. Care for yourself before you assign the duty to someone else. Be mindful of your energy! If you are not in the best mood, don't go spreading that funk around!! This is a friendly reminder, sage your space before and after negative energy enters...No Shade! . . #mental #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthquotes #mentalbreakdown #mentalabuse #mentalillnessmemes #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthproblems #mentalhealthmeme #mentalhealthissues #Repost @mentalhealthsoup ---

Why do I compete? I have been training clients for the past 18 years. Competing allows me to constantly challenge myself both, physically and mentally to be my very best. In the process, I hope to inspire anyone and anybody who might be needing just a little push to be their very best. I love competing with the WBFF because it provides the perfect platform for athletes from all over the world to take their fitness to the next level- bringing to the Wbff stage the best of the best. I am honored and excited to step back again on that stage and earn my Pro-Status. A big thank you to @paul_dillett and @allisondillett for always creating some of the best world-wide shows with @wbff_official for us athletes to compete. Also, huge thank you to my coach @tjhoban and my team @legendary.bodies for the constant support and keeping me accountable.

Most of my day was spent at the Mental Health Clinic. For those who don't know, my 8 year old has a mental illness. We have FINALLY got him the help he needs. One thing they asked me "Is getting Mason here every other week going to be an issue for you". That question had me feeling extra thankful for the Scentsy opportunity. Because of Scentsy I am able to be a stay at home mom and get my son to his mental health appointments❤

This goes for so many things. Work, studying, socialising, exercise.... This week I didn't go on a jog...or do any running. 👟 Why? Because I could feel my body just NOT WANTING TO. I want to enjoy moving my body. I remember being a kid and just wanting to go.outside and spin in circles and dance. The way I enjoyed my body before media told me what I should be doing with it. I am letting my body heal. I am taking a rest without beating myself up or feeling fear of "consequences" from not jogging. My body has intuition...and I am going to find it again. #senseandpsychology #psychology #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #psychologystudent #mentalhealthquotes #psychologyquotes #recovery #positivity

1 month to go — Don’t let the photo fool you. ✨ The amount of judgement I felt from staff about my choice to have an epidural — coupled with intense nerves — meant I had a complete breakdown during my hospital tour earlier today. ✨ Under the makeup, my face is covered in broken blood vessels from yet another evening spent vomiting. ✨ I’m running on about 2 hours of sleep and spent the day feeling hopelessly behind in every area of my life, as illustrated by my middle of the night realization that I hadn’t paid the water bill this month. ✨ I’ve been giving a lot of thought lately to what is shared on social media. So often it’s just half the story and scrolling through posts of everyone’s highlight reel leaves us feeling like we can never measure up. ✨ Now, I love sharing cute pictures of my dog and pumpkin picking as much as anyone else... but I’m starting to realize it’s incredibly important to sprinkle a little reality into our newsfeeds, too. For your mental health, and for mine. ✨ In case you needed the reminder today: No one’s life is as perfect as it looks on Instagram. You are enough. ✨ #BabyBirkenhauer #BabyJay #35Weeks #HyperemesisGravidarum #MentalHealthAwareness #RealConvo

Failure. Yuck!!!! I gotta tell you, this feeling SUCKS. Here I am, reflecting on the fact that I put my whole heart and soul into a competition and DIDN’T WIN THE GRAND PRIZE 😫 There is a part of my mind that wants to spiral down into shame and self-doubt and misery. It’s easy to go there - I have made a lifetime habit of it! But if I pause and simply FEEL INTO this experience, I sense something deeper that wants to emerge. And I’m not just talking about “positive thinking” and focusing on all the good that has come from this experience (although there is plenty of that, and remembering it certainly helps!) But there is more I can do here. There is a third path. Rather than descend into darkness or gloss over this experience, what if I LEAN INTO IT? What if I allow myself to fully feel the sensation of loss that is washing over me? At first, it terrifies me. I want to hide. I want to fume with anger and bitterness. And then…I am overcome with a sense of softness. A raw openness, a deep unbounded connection to everyone who has ever felt disappointment or rejection before. And a deeper than ever before desire to HELP THEM ALL❤️ It’s so beautiful, it moves me to tears. I feel a power surging within. Alongside the fire that is propelling me forward with such terrific momentum, I now also sense a fluidity of depth and poignancy that connects me to the WHY of this mission. So here I am. Raw, vulnerable, exposed. And bursting with a river of compassion, gratitude, and love. Knowing I am exactly where I need to be. And trusting deeper than ever before in my desire to make this world a brighter place. I guess it’s hard to argue that this experience is “bad” then, isn’t it? 😇🌈

As someone who’s gone through some serious sh*t in the past few years and managed to get through to the other side, I relate very hard to this post. Sometimes, our biggest losses are gifts in disguise.⁣ ⁣ That’s not to say that if we could go back in time, we wouldn’t do things differently, knowing what we know now.⁣ ⁣ But using the measurement scale of the present to weigh our past is unfair to ourselves.⁣ ⁣ You took the best decision you could, with what you had.⁣ ⁣ Past-you did the best you could.⁣ ⁣ With the background you had, your knowledge at the time, and the experience you had gone through at the time of decision making, you couldn’t have done things differently.⁣ ⁣ So forgive your past self.⁣ ⁣ And move forward in time with your new experience, knowledge and background.⁣ ⁣ ⁣Repost from @ambivertt ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #forgiveness #peace #compassion #trauma #anxiety #healing #mentalhealth #depression #therapy #selfcare #mentalhealthawareness #love #cptsd #recovery #mindfulness #psychology #narcissisticabuse #narcissist #sociopath #abuse #emotionalabuse #toxicpeople #domesticviolence #gaslighting #toxicrelationships #psychologicalabuse #mentalhealth #verbalabuse #npd #ptsd

Two years ago today the world lost a wonderful young man. Oh so young, only 15. Life for him had become to difficult for his mind to handle. He like most, that choose to leave this world feel that by leaving they are making the world a better place for those left behind. A completely compassionate act of care for others. They don’t actually want to but want those who they deeply love and care for to be happy and not burdened by the hurt and heart ache their own mind tells them they are to others. So today we walked for Tyson. We walked because his mattered, because he was loved, because he was compassionate, because he loved well. If there is anything to take away from this tragedy it is this... Everyone has a story, be kind. Use words that encourage, build up, show love. We all don’t have to agree to get along. Each of us has a different story. . . . . . . . #anxiety #suicideawareness #bullyingisntokay #fitness #mentalhealthrecovery #love #health #healing #mentalillness #awareness #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #wellness #mentalhealthmatters #motivation #depressed #mentalhealthawareness #depression #life #selflove #suicide #endthestigma #positivevibes #mindfulness #selfcare #inspiration #quotes #ptsd #loveyourself #loss

To everyone else, this is just an empty plate, after eating a meal. To me, and many people like me, it is an achievement. For the last few weeks, I haven't had an appetite. My mental illnesses and my meds have made it hard to be hungry or even have the energy to eat. Today, I made a conscious effort to get food and finish a meal, even though my brain was telling me that I'm not hungry. If you are like me, try to eat today. Even if it's something small, like some grapes or an apple, your body will thank you later. I know it's hard, but I'm here rooting you on. You got this and I believe in you. ✨♥️ . . . . . #livingwithdepression #livingwithbipolardisorder #livingwithanxiety #mentalhealthawareness #ibelieveinyou #youarenotalone #nofilter #nofilterneeded #thisiswhatdepressionlookslike #takecareofyourself #selfcare #selflove

Day 346 of 365 days of positivity. Be brave. You’ve got this! ❤️ ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️ As many of my friends, family and work friends will know, I came face to face tragically with the impact of mental illness and depression in May of last year. I chose not to be angry at this chap for his actions that day. I wanted to try and understand and to try and prevent other people feeling so hopeless and alone. So since then, I’ve been determined to get people talking about mental health, to break the taboo and let people know #iwillbethere I plan to post positivity about mental health every day for a year to ensure we’re always talking about it and always there for each other. Feel free to share my messages and please try to always stay positive. I know words are easy but I promise you, you’re important, you matter and you can get there. https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/martin-angell-i-will-be-there #marts365daysofpositivity #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthuk #breakthetaboo #breakthesilence #endthestigma #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #iwillbethere #samaritans #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #martsmessage #martsmentalhealthmessage #mensmentalhealth #itsoktocry #itsoktotalk #positivity #newyorkstateofmind #incharleysmemory #letstalkaboutmentalhealth #suicideprevention #ptsdawareness #suicideisnottheanswer #suicideisreal #positivity #positivityquotes #ownyourshit #youreonlyhuman #itsokaynottobeokay

idk who needs to hear this but you were not put on this earth to be the smallest version of yourself!!! 🗣 i feel like women especially have a hard time with this. i know i’ve been told countless times “just don’t get too bulky” or “you’re gonna look manly.” let’s get one thing straight, women breaking social norms and building beautiful bodies in a world that only wants us smaller is FUCKING BADASS!!! you know who needs to approve of my body? ME. healthy does not always mean 6 pack abs and a vegan diet. healthy comes in all shapes and sizes. side note i’m strong as shit and you would definitely want me on your side in a fight just sayin 🤷🏼‍♀️😂 becoming the STRONGEST version of myself mentally and physically is more important to me than “looking the part.” took me a while to realize this hence the lack of fitness content. we back and we better baby LETS GET IT 💪🏼

#Repost @mentalmovement (with @report.for.insta ) ... Things are bittersweet at the moment. My anxiety is much better and I’m so happy about that, but I’ve been feeling very low and stressed and overwhelmed, etc. Things aren’t great and it feels like I have no one to talk to but it’s okay.

Hay días en que sientes que la ansiedad se apodera de ti. Tomate un momento para respirar. Todo va a estar bien, es solo un mal momento que va a pasar. Respira profundo y deja ir todo lo malo. Algo que me gusta hacer mucho para calmar la mente es meditar. Y si sientes que estas muy ansioso y necesitas una guía te recomiendo (en lo personal) un app que se llama "Calm" también me ayuda mucho en momentos así. Recuerda que tú tienes el control de tu mente y tú cuerpo, por más que a veces no lo sientas de esa forma. Confía en ti. Todo va a estar bien, es solo algo temporal.✨ #yougotthispty #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #positivementalattitude #hablemosdesaludmental

Submission by @capturedbycaity for #tootiredproject / @capturedbycaity writes: “A lot of my personal work deals with the nostalgia of seemingly humdrum situations. I grew up next to a laundromat and my brother and I used to play inside it all the time. It would get us in trouble often but we were always running around in there, laughing, jumping in the carts, trying to squeeze into the dryers. I lost my brother to suicide at age 27 and I still yearn for/daydream about those simple laundromat days. This photo represents the intense loneliness I feel now in waiting for the boring task of laundry to finish. #mentalhealthawareness #arthelps #contemporaryphotography

i feel lost. out of place. fragmented... i’m in that space between many paths i could take. difficulty is, i don’t have any idea where the paths lead or which is the right one for me. where the fuck am i going? what the fuck am i doing? will i ever like myself? does any of this shit i’m worried about even matter in the big picture? all common questions we ask ourselves. a lot of us wish we could be carefree and just “trust the process”. but for our anxious little minds that is near impossible. we want to believe we influence our futures. but that’s also a terrifying power to have. . . . . . . . . #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealth #visualart #art #grungeaesthetic #darkportrait #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #ptsdawareness #anxiety #socialanxiety #complexptsd #moody #moodyports #grungegirl #gothaesthetic #punkaesthetic #relationships #actuallyborderline #breakthestigma #recovery #mentalhealthadvocate #wintertrees #winteraesthetic #life

The weekend is here, and I could spend it all just snuggling away with this little dude. 😍⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ In finding happiness, reducing stress, and relieving anxiety, animals are a major source of emotional therapy.⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ According to a study by @harvardmed , having a pet to take care of benefits us in many ways:⁠⠀ 🐾Unconditional Love & compassion⁠⠀ 🐾Sense of purpose⁠⠀ 🐾Reduces the stress response⁠⠀ 🐾 Calms breathing⁠⠀ 🐾Lowers anxiety⁠⠀ 🐾Increases Oxytocin - a “feel good” chemical⁠⠀ 🐾Increases social & physical activity⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ My favorite local shelter is the @catnipcatcafe , where you can interact with cats in a home-like environment and get to know them more personally than if they were caged up. So take time to snuggle your fur babies this weekend, or maybe think about adopting! Happy Friday!⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ .⁠⠀ ⁠ #anxietyhealing #anxietyrecovery #anxietywarrior #anxietysupport #stressmanagement #animaltherapy #adoptdontshop #rescuecatsofig #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery #petsociety #rescueanimals #rescuedontbuy #rescuedcatsofinstagram

Start setting habit-oriented goals... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There's nothing wrong with setting measured goals based on a mark you're trying to hit, but I really feel like we need to prioritize goals that build healthy habits and strong work ethic. It's a lot harder to hit measured goals when you're lacking the work ethic needed to get there. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Try and make the next goal you set for yourself or your brand one that builds healthy habits. Hone in on the journey you're taking and not the end outcome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #LivingRoomKizzle #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #anxiety #depression #selfcare #love #selflove #health #mentalillness #recovery #wellness #therapy #mindfulness #motivation #psychology #ptsd #healing #fitness #loveyourself #mentalhealthmatters #meditation #life #trauma #happiness #inspiration #stress #wellbeing #quotes #awareness

. . HAPPY WORLD GRATITUDE DAY 🙏🏻 . . Today is World Gratitude Day 💙 - a day to remember the power of thankful thinking and mindset. Over the past year, my family and I have implemented a couple of rituals/habits that shift us back into the present & redirect our thoughts (even on the crappiest of days) 💫 to a thought-frequency of gratitude. Each night at dinner, even if it’s around the kitchen bench in between the chaos of a busy evening of homework & co-curricular & cooking & sport & cleaning, or even out at a restaurant, or sometimes staggered because someone gets home late... we go around and share 1 thing we’re grateful for from that day! Sometimes it’s a tiny snippet of our day or the meal we’re eating and sometimes it’s deeper, such as the way someone made us feel or an act of kindness we experienced. But it opens up conversation as a family around what’s going on in our lives and that everyday there is ALWAYS something to be grateful for. Another is something I do alone most mornings, and it literally takes 2 minutes.✍🏻 I jot down the first 3 things I am grateful for as I start my day. And 3 things I want to feel and experience that day. Pulling the good out of everyday regardless of any bad that may have come your way, can change your whole vibe, mood, energy level, stress-hormone-production and overall health! So today and everyday I encourage you to try some gratitude rituals to help elevate the vibe in your home and in your heart🙏🏻💙! In my stories today, I have shared 3x things I’m grateful for this morning... please tell me yours!

Sorry I haven't tagged anyone (as I don't want to annoy by tagging) All too often people find it easier to criticize each other instead of building each other up, with all the negativity going around, lets do something positive!! Because you are beautiful!! 😘 Upload 1 picture of yourself... ONLY you. Then tag 25 or more gorgeous men/women to do the same.

📜10 signs that it’s time to CHANGE your Mindset: 1. You constantly focus on your failures. 2. Everything is always wrong; never right. 3. You are afraid to face the truth. 4. You are at loggerheads with the world. 5. You feel like a victim. 6. You feel helpless and powerless. 7. Nothing brings you joy. 8. Disappointment makes you angry. 9. You never celebrate things that go well. 10. Everything is a chore; not an opportunity. If any three of the above apply to you, it’s time to change your Mindset. How? Change your self-talk, the TRUTH that you are saying in your own HEART. Decide where you want to get to in Life and adjust your routine and habits accordingly. Surround yourself with people who match the mindset you want to achieve. If you don't have them ask God to connect them to you. He knows how to connect the dots for you. Audaciously take FAITH steps out of your comfort zone. When you change the way your mind is set, you change your perspective. When you change your perspective, you will POSITIVELY change your mood! What’s holding you back from a better state of mind, today? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments, please!

How to put your identity in God❤️ What do you put your identity is? Common things you can easily put your identity in: How many followers you have on social media. Your weight. Your illnesses you have. How you look. How many likes you get on a picture on social media. What your friends and/or family think of you. What people on the internet think of you. From the ages of 13-16 I put my identity in being depressed. I would call myself: “depressed girl.” I made being depressed my identity. I made decisions to stay depressed because I didn’t want to get better. I just wanted to stay within my identity. To be honest, I still struggle with my identity. In the past two years I put my identity in being in pain. But lately I have been really trying to put my identity in God. I don’t have it all figured out yet but I will share with you what I do know. I do know that in God you are: You are beautiful. (Psalm 45:11) You are unique. (Psalm 139:13) You are loved. (Jeremiah 31:3) You are special. (Ephesians 2:10) You are created with a purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11) You are cared for. (Ephesians 3:17-19) You are lovely. (Daniel 12:3) You are precious. ( 1 Corinthians 6:20) You are strong. (Psalm 18:35) You are important. (1 Peter 2:9) You are forgiven. ( Psalm 103:12) You are protected. (Psalm 121:3) You are chosen. (John 15:16) You are mine. (Isaiah 43:1) We are worth SO much more than our illnesses, our weight, our looks, our social media account, or what people think of us. God thinks we are to die for because He sent His only Son to die on the cross FOR YOU. How do we put our identity in God? We have to start changing our mindset. We have to stop looking at our worldly identity but we have to learn who we are in Christ. Because in Christ, we are loved, cared for, forgiven, have a purpose, and so much more. We have to start praying for God to help us. We have to have God to help us change our mindset because we can’t do this alone. We need to grab God’s hand and let Him take the lead. God will show us how, we just have to trust in Him. #dailydevotional #christianinspiration #jesusisking #identityinchrist #godisgood #mentalhealthawareness

Want to get more people to read your IG captions? Get conversational! Also known as, focus on the reader and not yourself. 1. Ask questions that will elicit responses. 2. Use the words “you” and “your” to make it personal. 3. Suggest ideas + instruct on how to do things you’re good at. This shift in focus helps your reader feel involved. Honestly we all care most about ourselves so that feels good. SAVE THIS POST and look back at it next time you want to write a killer caption.🖤🌈

”Maybe I’m crazy or maybe there’s something wrong with me”... she had just finished telling me about all the feelings she was experiencing... . . I leant over to her & smiled because I knew... I had seen it hundreds of times before & experienced it personally.... . . “There isn’t anything wrong with you. This is a normal part of building a vision that not everyone can see yet.” . . . The inner world of a visionary is often misunderstood... . . There is the excitement of possibility; the frustration of things not yet working how you expected; the wondering if you’re crazy; the self doubt; & the deep knowing that this is your purpose in life... . . .

We’re all just as fucked up as each other but my god having a good chat really does help the bullshit in your brain become a bit clearer. Please ask your friends and family if they are doing ok and the most important factor... LISTEN.

UPDATE: The graphic has a minor error. Wise mind is: seeing the value of both reason and EMOTION, not reason and logic. Guess who wasn’t in wise mind while making this graphic? 🙋🏻‍♀️ There are 3 states of mind: there is the reasonable mind, the emotion mind, and wise mind. WHAT I KNOW: Reasonable mind is cool, rational, task-focused. When in reasonable mind, you’re ruled by facts, reason, logic, and pragmatics. Values and feelings are not important. WHAT I THINK: Emotion mind is hot, mood-dependent, and emotion-focused. When you’re in emotion mind, you’re ruled by your moods, feelings, and urges to do or say things. Facts, reason, and logic are not important. WHAT I THINK TO BE TRUE: Wise mind is the wisdom within each person. It is seeing the value of both reason and emotion. It’s not 50/50 of reasonable and emotion mind— but the ESSENCE of both. It is less of a reaction and more of an action that you decide. It is finding “the Middle Path” (more on Middle Path, coming soon). We all have moments where we are either in reasonable or emotion mind, while striving to be in wise mind. Listen, some days it’s going to be tough. How do we reach wise mind? Mindfulness! Mindfulness helps bring awareness to your current emotions, helps you check the facts (more on emotions that fit the facts coming soon) and then lets you have a choice to decide on what action to take— that right there is being in wise mind. What state of mind are you in today? #dbt #dbtskills #dbttherapy Disclaimer: this was adapted from the DBT Skills Training Manual, second edition by Marsha M. Linehan.

Through all of the unknowns, through the worst of days and the darkest of moments, you made it here. There may even have been times you were sure that you wouldn’t, but you did. And I don’t know if the struggle gets any easier, but I know that you will get stronger. Because now you know that you have the strength within you to keep fighting even when you thought you couldn’t anymore. Now you know that even here, in the midst of your wilderness, there can be found moments of incredible love and joy. When you begin feeling worried about the future, remember all that you survived this season, all that you learned this season, all the ways you grew-even though it had seemed so impossible. You found ways to let the light in. You found ways to let life in.

I did this photographic series on Mental Health back in May but never shared. Today seems as good a day as any to share. Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Most of us will experience depression at some point in our lives. Some of us will experience it at several points. And some of us will learn to live with it as a common occurrence that we can hopefully learn to manage over time. Whichever category we fall into, we are all in this life together. Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death globally. Reach out, talk to someone - never let it get so bad that you believe the world would be better off without you in it. ⁣ ⁣⁣ #SuicideHotline : 1-800-273-8255 ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ #suicideprevention #worldsuicidepreventionday #worldsuicidepreventionday2019 #depressionhelp #depression #anxiety #worldsuicideprevention #suicidepreventionday #suicidepreventionmonth #bostonphotographer #photographer #health #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #selfcare
