I wish that every part of me could love you perfectly. That when I went up I wasn't impatient and agitated, that you were still enough to pull me back to earth 🌎 I wish I could give that to you: to be my superhero and all I need. . Mental illness doesn't just hurt the holder of the title, it hurts the family too which makes it even harder on the one baring the weight 💔 . My heart breaks whenever I think of the short time we have together that I waste on self loathing, self pity, self hate, and then turning it around into a rage where I think I hate everyone and even sometimes you. What kind of wife does that make me? Do you understand? . I wish I could be saved by man, by you alone and nothing else. But my chemistry is not made for that. I take pills and follow a schedule and diet plan. I try to keep everything as even keel as I can so you can have the best of me. But I always forget to let your unconditional love in. . Growing up in an environment where I was only treated as a respected human when I followed specific criteria still leads me to forget that even I, a girl still searching, can be loved. That I, a girl still hoping, DESERVES love. Your love has always been unconditional, no matter how much I may try to convince you otherwise in the heights of my panic. I shut you out to punish myself without even knowing it, but punish you in turn. How do I tell you I don't mean it? That I want you closer but can't handle the warmth your soul gives mine? That you bring me closer to who I am every day by doing only one thing: always loving me. Until you have this mind you can never understand that in the depth of who I am, that at the core of my make up, that I will always love you. That I fight to let the love in. I am hopeful because you give me something to hope for. . I scream and say things I wouldn't otherwise. I hurt you. And it confuses you I'm sure. I wish I could take it all back. Every time. But know only this: that every night before I sleep I hope to wake up, for you ❤️ #twinflame #love

This is a face of depression. Depression is a flaw in chemistry not character. Something I sometimes have a hard time remembering, especially on days like today when I am hypersensitive and overthink everything. #depression #flawed #ididntchoosethis #tears😢 #pain #invisible #mentalhealthawareness

Holiday Mental Health Tip: Comfy Shoes. They ain't sexy but after hiking through 3 airports and travelling for nearly 24 hours my feet are still comfortable. So here I am at Phoenix airport and the universe is smiling on me. I have scored an earlier bus meaning that I arrive at my #yogateachertraining at midnight instead of 1am.

Lately I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed with my thoughts. It's such an important thing to remember that you are the one who chooses your thoughts, and that not every thought is true, because your mind is the one making them up. #theheart #crystalheart #positivethoughts #positivity #happiness #joy #thoughts #mentalhealth #positiveenergy #mentalhealthawareness #crystal #cystalhealing #crystals

Today, As I sat enjoying a beautiful breakfast outing with my boys, I heard a conversation, One that isn't as rare as we would all like it to be, One of a mum, A mum suffering mental health concerns, A mum suffering loneliness, A mum unsure of what the next step is, A mum finding the life as a parent a damn struggle, I heard a friend, A friend with deep concern, A friend with care and love in her voice, A friend unsure of what the next step is, A feeling of despair, A feeling of desperation to help, A feeling of sadness, There is many in this situation and I am here today to say I am here to help! Come to one of my intimate workshops in a sacred and safe place and I can guide you to the next step! I will help you build connections with local mums all on the self care journey! This is my dream, my passion, my desire to make a difference in the world! (Link in bio) All my love and strength xx 📷 @tricia.williams.photography

It will be a year soon, but I still miss her like crazy. You never get back that piece of your heart you give away. She will always be my best friend. I will always miss her. I will always know what I did wrong. And I'll always be here if she needs me/ wants me/ or ever thinks about me. I'll always miss her. #poetry #poetrycommunity #poetsofinstagram #poets #poet #newyorkpoetry #newyorkpoets #creativewriting #writersofig #writerscommunity #poetrysociety #anxiety #anxietydisorder #anxietyquotes #mentalhealth #mentalillness #instafame #instafamous  #mentalhealthawareness #anxious #depression #depressed #depressedquotes #support #helping #motivation #bff #relationships  #anxietyattack #love #anxietyquotes #depressedquotes

@awoundedmind

you can't give up. just take it one day at a time and do the best you can. don't forget - the fact that you opened your eyes today means you made it through yesterday. as charles bukowski said, "sometimes you climb out of bed in the morning and you think, i'm not going to make it, but you laugh inside - remembering all the times you felt that way." #martinlutherking #martinlutherkingjr #quoteoftheday #mental #health #inspiration #healing #dailyinspo #mlk #martinlutherkingday #woundedmind

@kill_the_stigma

I see therapy as the stitching of a psychological wound. They have to touch the wound to clean it out and apply the sutures. Anything outside the realms of therapy, (recovery while you aren't actively working with your therapist or counselor), the wound is to be taken care of by you. It will be painful and will itch and burn. But, you shouldn't touch the wound or pick at the scabbing (Self care). In a perfect world it would take one session. Unfortunately, we sometimes unknowingly reopen the wound or someone else does. Other times it becomes infected (relapse). We go back to therapy to re clean it out and reapply the sutures hoping we don't aggravate as much the next time. This is recovery. It's a process....we have to do our part in our recovery as well. All wounds heal. Keep going. 🙏🏽

*This is not a before and after, but rather a before and an in progress photo... (right to left, past to present) 🤗 Short story: I didn't struggle with weight my entire life... it wasn't until my first year of college where it got out of hand. I let fear/ anxiety get the best of me...the pressure of school, personal relationships, work, etc. This had built up over the years... On top of all the exterior stuff, I was trying to figure out who I was...I lost touch with myself, and quite honestly turned to food and alcohol as a means to numb my emotions whenever I got the opportunity. This went on for years... I would lose weight every so often... but then I'd dig myself into the same old hole. It was comforting...and anyone that knows sadness, knows how comforting that deep and dark place can feel.💀 I was in constant fluctuation, both physically and mentally... 2016 was very good to me, and thankfully, I think I'm finally getting the hang of a healthy lifestyle. Getting motivated to exercise is hard, but I try. 💪A few months ago I also made an important decision to go vegetarian and restrict my alcohol intake.🍎🍷 Am I going to have a little too much fun sometimes? Will I let myself overindulge sometimes? Hell yes!🙆 Nobody is perfect, and nothing comes easy, but I believe in myself and I believe in the power of positive thought. This year has been life changing and eye opening for me. I know I'm stronger than I give myself credit for, and it's something I need to remind myself of daily. To my journey and yours...cheers! 🎉 Full story will be posted on my blog shortly (link on my home page). #vegetarian #positivemind #positivelife #betruetoyourself #healthylifestyle #findingmypassion #lifestylechanges #tryingmybest #daybyday #progressisaprocess #veggielife #plantbased #meatless #myjourney #selfimprovement #aspiretoinspire #mentalhealthawareness #endthestigma

When it comes to diet and nutrition "Less isn't always best" Don't starve yourself but instead have a better relationship with food. #BALANCE ------------------------------ I thought @em_dunc made a really good point in one of her videos about having a better relationship with food by first not labeling some of the foods we eat as "cheat meals". As Duncan says "our words have greater impact than we think. When you use the word 'cheat' it has a negative connotation" and makes us believe we are doing something wrong or doing something we are not allowed to do which isn't necessarily the best relationship to have with food. At least it wasn't for me. By referring to foods as bad personally set me for failure each time and lead me to other negative behaviors such as restricting, and binge eating. Before tracking macros, practicing a flexible diet and weight training I personally always felt defeated. I was guessing a lot of the time and most days actually not eating enough calories in a day to lose weight. I've always enjoyed exercising but ultimately never had a healthy relationship with food. My diet (my strict boring diet) made me feel deprived and weak-willed which would cause me to over-eat other days on "cheat meals". Afterwards I would feel guilty and this would cause me to go in a vicious cycle of restricting and binge eating. Food use to give me relief but immediately follow with guilt and shame afterwards. Today however I am able to practice a flexible, sustainable diet while enjoying food guilt-free. I eat 5-6 times a day at maintenence calories and loosely track my macros. I learned how to estimate portion sizes, read serving sizes on the nutrition labels and eat what I want in moderation. Life is meant to be enjoyed and food is a big part of enjoying life. By first beginning with having a better relationship with yourself, people AND your food. #flexibledieting #macros #iifym #anxietywarrior 📸@stephanievstein

It took me a very very long time to admit what my mental illness is and how it has shaped my life. I think I am still coming to some realizations that require more growth than I've ever been comfortable not masking with anger. And in that realization, I've found a soul so patient and so understanding because he too lives this battle everyday. I will forever be thankful for this turning point in my life. The realization that love is so beautifully endless and all consuming that no control is needed. I don't know where my life is going but I do know that I have never been as happy and as sure of my ability to overcome every obstacle I face. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the only soul on this planet that has ever understood my chaos... and loved me through it ❤️ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #lifeafterabuse

I have panic disorder. Panic disorder is a mental disorder characterized by recurrent spontaneous panic attacks which cause the person to become preoccupied with the fear of future attacks. During a panic attack, the person is overcome with feelings of fear and intense dread. Oftentimes, the fear becomes out of proportion to the situation. These feelings of fear are accompanied by physical symptoms, such as increased heart rate, sweating, hyperventilation, shaking, and lightheadedness. I describe it as feeling like you're being choked. Unfortunately, most of my panic attacks have ended in a visit to the hospital because I couldn't calm myself down. When I had my first panic attack at the age of 11, I had no idea what a panic attack was, so I didn't know what was happening to me. I literally thought that I was going to die. After my first panic attack, I had several more over the next year or so. I made some lifestyle changes and only had about three attacks over the following two years. However, about a year ago, I was involved in a traumatic experience which caused a series of panic attacks over the past year of my life. I have begun to make peace with my fears and anxiety about what happened instead of allowing myself to be consumed by sadness, hatred, guilt, and bitterness and it has made such a difference. With the help of medication and therapy, my panic attacks have subsided. I am proof that things like this do get better even if there are bumps in the road. As long as you believe in yourself and have patience with yourself, you can get through anything! You don't have to live your life in fear. Here are some facts and statistics about panic disorder: Although the direct cause is not known, factors that contribute to panic disorder may include brain abnormalities, family history, major stress, and substance abuse. Panic disorder affects approximately 2.4 million American adults. It often begins in late adolescence and early adulthood. It is often comorbid with other disorders, including other anxiety disorders, depression, and substance abuse. #mentalhealthawareness #youarenotalone #endthestigma #panicdisorder

2016 was a year. A year full of days just like any other year. For me, it was spent mostly in solitude. Trying to understand and battle the depression and anxiety that's filled my life lately. Trying to keep it all at bay so that I can be a good mother, a good student, a good friend, a good sister, a good lover, a good daughter. It's safe to say I failed pretty hard at a lot of those things, and I haven't been all that easy on myself. I realized though, that I couldn't have these high expectations of myself when I'm struggling. Mental health is taboo, it's 2017 and we still can't get our heads around the fact that people fighting depression, anxiety, or any other mental health problem are truly ill. And that just because it's not an illness that traditionally manifests physically, doesn't mean those people don't need all the more help. I've wanted to be like all of my friends and all of the people I admire and perform on that same level, but that's an absurd expectation to have of yourself when you're struggling. I had to spend a lot of time alone to realize that I dont have to be perfect for everyone else and that I can focus on Miles and nursing school, and that eventually one day I will come out of this paranormal upside down world I feel so trapped in, and hopefully be a stronger human being for it. I really miss my friends and have felt a deep heartbreak for much of the year - but in turn have grown closer with family members and close nursing student friends. Thank you to all of you that have stuck by me and supported me no matter what. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for loving me when I've been least deserving. I'm by no means anywhere close to perfect, and i work hard every day to control my anxiety, so some days I hide out at home and other days I feel great - but I wouldn't be where I was today if it wasn't for all of the support and love I receive from the ones who love me. CHEERS TO PEOPLE WITH BIG HEARTS AND BIG HUGS 🙌🏼💕 • sharing for mental health awareness and to destigmatize • mental illness occurs across the globe and does not discriminate by race, gender, class, popularity, appearances, or age • tell family and friends you love them

@balancing.bipolar

Another unpoetic, panicky honest rant:: Today has been horrible. I'm sitting here writing this as an attempt to calm my now manic mind since when I get ultra manic, I get full of hate and anger and self loathing; turning me suicidal 😥😥😞 . I can definitively say that stress makes me manic, which I never knew before. The amount of stress I felt today was all consuming and as soon as I got on my ride home I could feel a slow flip in my brain. I went from Anxious Annie to Running All The Errands Annie to Clean Everything Annie to Manic Annie {my names not Annie, just for the record}. It felt good to not be full of anxiety and pain anymore but ya'll know me: I can't just go to a +2/5 day... I've gotta aim for psychotic +6/5 ❗❗*face palm* . So right now I'm tired af because I only slept 3 ish hours last night but am all revved up and ready to fight somebody. SOMEBODY STOP ME. I won't. I know I won't because I'm alone on the sofa trying to fizz out right now. But the tension creeping up my neck is calling me to an all familiar place I don't want to go where reality isn't real anymore 🦄🦄🦄 . I have my appointment Friday and I am just PRAYING {I'm not religious though, despite being an ex pastors daughter} she finds the balance I need and chills me the fuuuuuuu out, ya know ❓❗ . Anyways, here's to my silver lining of the day: it didn't end in the same anxiety and pain it started in 🐢🐇 . Sleep tight and dream well ☁️💤 #bipolar #bipolar1 #bp1 #bipd #manicdepression #mania #depression #upanddown #spoonie #borderlinepersonality #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd #borderline #ptsd #anxiety #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #thisismysong #hope #inspiration #imstillhere #suicideprevention #endthestigma #recovery #determination #psychology #itsanewday #balancingbipolar

@mikeywarhol

Living with clinical depression isn't as scary for me as it once was. My depression was debilitating, crippling. My form of depression was dangerous and lethal. "Why me?"was something I would ask myself every morning I didn't wake up dead. "Why me?" I felt like I always had to put on a mask for the world. On the outside I was happy, but on the inside, I was screaming. I had to find the courage to fight this demon and I did just that. After intensive rehabilitation and the right kind of medication, I'm finally felt like myself. I was overcome with a sense of serenity. I know I won't be able to escape depression for the rest of my life. I know one day it will visit me again. But instead of asking why me? I will be exclaiming "yes me!" As awful as this might sound, I welcome you, depression. You are nothing more but another challenge that I will beat once more. I now have the weapons and tools to use against you that one day you decide to show up at my doorstep. So, "yes me!" Challenge accepted! Because to this day, I am not afraid of you anymore. #mentalillness #BC2M #themighty #mentalhealthawareness

In this day of reflection & remembrance of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., let us honor him by asking ourselves how we give back to others. As for me -- In a nutshell, I give back by educating others about the importance of mental health, in addition to supporting & advocating for people living with mental illness. How about you -- in a few words, how do you give back to others in your community?? ❤✊ #MLK #giveback #community
