These lines popped up in my hazy mind during a long night of insomnia a few days ago. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've always needed to sleep with a blanket even when it's not cold, or else I'll feel vulnerable, as if whatever is lurking in the dark could get to me if I didn't keep the thin layer of bed sheets on me. A weird placebo, I guess. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But that night my hand and leg were sticking out of the bed and, before the usual "oh no, it's not safe" reaction, I somehow thought about it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ About the fact that maybe, if there actually had been a monster under my bed, he wouldn't necessarily want to hurt me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Maybe we'd have a cup of tea together. Maybe he'd be the one to run away after hearing my thoughts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, that was one looooooong night of insomnia 😅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I hope I'm not the only one that can't usually let her leg or hand stick out of the blankets or else something bad will happen 🙈

🚨MENTAL HEALTH TALK!🚨 LEARN TO BE GRATEFUL Depression comes from feeling hopeless. Feeling like you have no one or nothing. You're feeling like you have nothing to live for. It all started with one negative thought. And that one negative thought clouded your judgment. Maybe things aren't going your way. You lost your job. No money to pay rent. Your car got reposessed. Your significant other left you. Or you have been bullied into thinking your not good enough. But as we all know we can't control others or what happens to us we can only control our thoughts and actions. Everyday isn't perfect but EVERYDAY WE GET IS A BLESSING! ✔BE GRATEFUL FOR THE STRUGGLE BECAUSE IT MAKES YOU STRONGER! ✔BE GRATEFUL FOR THOSE WHO ABANDON YOU BECAUSE THEY WERE ONLY WEIGHING YOU DOWN! ✔BE GRATEFUL FOR THE LOSS OF AN OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE YOUR PATH IS CLEARED OF WHAT ISNT FOR YOU! @underthought_athletics #futuremotivationalspeaker #begrateful #positiveselfimage #positivevibes #positivethoughts #strongthoughts #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthblogger #beatdepression #depressionsupport #depression #grateful #faith #itllbeokay #itllgetbetter #strongmind #youareenough #yourenotalone #veteran

That's the first time I have said those statements and truly felt like I am internalizing them. It took LITERAL rock bottom (i.e.- going to an inpatient psychiatric ward for a few days in April), for me to truly start over and start building from the ground up. ⁣ ⁣ I am fun, kind, passionate, truthful, confident, funny, and a more-consistently positive attitude, good vibe, and all around GOOD in every sense of the word, person to be around. I am overcoming my mental illness and I know that my life will be nothing but an extraordinary adventure now, and in the future. Even on my bad days, I know that I can pivot and make better days happen. I am truly blessed to have this life and to have the strength to improve. ❤️⁣ ⁣ I am happy.

His life... too fast. Too fast to grasp hold of. And through darkness he found only more darkness. And through pain... More pain. A fire burned. His life ablaze with fury and embers. And he asked for forgiveness. Not from others. But from himself. Because through the looking glass he saw but a distortion of a man. Twisted and hideous. Flawed and imperfect. And still his life ablaze. . . . . . #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #vancouverphotographer #mentalhealthjourney #breakthestigma #way2ill #photographyislife #visualmobs #visualambassadors #mentalhealthwarrior #writersofig #artofvisuals #photographyislifee #fatalframes #illgrammers #poetryporn #newwestminster #agameoftones #lastingvisuals #igtones #visualgrams #theimaged #storytelling #killeverygram #shoot2kill #ig_shotz #ig_masterpiece #all_shotz #loadedlenses #writerscommunity

Some people want to be better. They want to be a better thinker, or a better listener, or a better parent, or a better person. They want to be more loving, kind, and courageous. So they take courses, read books, consult coaches, hear speeches, take assessments, and and and... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, the one thing they don’t do is actually, ‘do more’ of the thing they want to be. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Information gathering alone is not going to change the way you are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can’t just learn your way into being anything. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You have to 'do' your way into being that something. You want to be loving, do more loving acts. You want to be kind, do more kind acts. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You want to be courageous, do more things that scare you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You want to be a better listener, do more listening. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You want to be a better thinker, do more thinking. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You want to be a better parent, do more parenting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You want to be a good person, do more good.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #justdoit⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #becourageous #changeyourlife #quotestoliveby #takebackyourpower #mentalhealth #drsalihaafridi #dubai

The Story of my Tattoo: Venturing into your first ✨visible✨tattoo can be a nerve wracking experience. Yes, I have two others but they are in places where they can be hidden and no one would ever know I have tattoos. I wanted this one visual. Actually, I needed this one to be visual. It’s no secret that I started my Instagram journey as an outlet from postpartum depression and anxiety. As I still navigate that journey on a daily basis, I came across a book that was life changing for me. The book is called The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. It is a quick read and is written in language that is so straightforward. The book makes it easy to see why some simple changes to your mindset can change your whole world. Without getting into all the specifics (read the book!) one of the agreements is to be impeccable with your word. Your word can be like a double edged sword...hurtful and can cause great pain...or can create beauty and happiness. 🗡 When I read this, I immediately thought of a cactus. Pretty, but prickly. Beautiful, but can cause harm. And I knew I wanted to see that image daily to remind me of this agreement. 🌵 Aside from this, there is also the reminder of Texas. Austin, in particular, has stolen my heart and the cactus reminds me of the way I feel when I am there. 💞 Finally, the connection to my little, Tania (little is a sorority family tree term). She lives in Austin and our yearly visits are something I look forward to every day. I’m forever grateful for joining a sorority simply because of her. 👯‍♀️ Do you have any tattoos? What is the story behind it?

The past few months I’ve used intentions to overcome anxiety. I’ve used small mantras to stop the spiraling thought cycles that start when I give into self judgment and abuse. I am worthy. I open my heart. But lately, it’s like I can’t decide which one to use. I could use them all and can’t get quiet enough to focus on what I truly need. What outcome I want to achieve in that moment. And that’s when it hit me. Yesterday I went to a heart opening cacao ceremony at my mom’s studio. Something I feel I so desperately need after having a year of heartbreak. We started the ceremony with intentions for ourselves before we were immersed in savasana- an extended period of stillness. I couldn’t settle. I kept listing in my head everything I wanted my heart to be- healed, open, fierce, fearless, radiant- the list was so long that all I could focus on was an endless stream of expectations I felt I couldn’t achieve because there were too many. I didn’t know how to be all of them. I didn’t know how I’d come out the other side of this meditation with an open heart, how would I get there? How could I make my heart brave again, love again, whole again? It felt impossible. And that’s when it hit me again. I can’t make my heart open if I don’t know how to open it. I can’t make my heart heal if I focus on healing as a switch, an achievement, the finish line of a race I don’t even know the route to. A route I don’t know because I never asked. What do you need, heart, to open, to love, to be open to love? What do you need heart, to release yourself from the confines you’ve built and the constrictions you’ve woven? So that is my intention. It is to listen. To ask and commune with my heart. To say hello to it, to know it so I can know what it needs to get there. My heart is closed because I have not loved my own heart enough to give it space to heal. I’ve tried so hard to force it to heal, that I skipped the healing itself- I skipped the healing because I didn’t know what healing meant. My mind didn’t know what healing meant. And that’s the point. It’s not my mind, it’s my heart that knows the path to its own radiance. So heart, hello, what do you need? I love you. May I know you❤️

Муж заходит в душ, в то время как его жена только закончила мыться. Раздается дверной звонок. Жена наскоро заворачивается в полотенце и бежит открывать. На пороге сосед Боб. Только увидев её, Боб говорит: «Я дам Вам восемьсот долларов, если Вы снимете полотенце». Подумав пару секунд, женщина делает это и стоит перед Бобом голая. Боб дает ей восемьсот долларов и уходит. Жена надевает полотенце обратно и возвращается в ванную. «Кто это был?» — спрашивает муж. «Боб, сосед», — отвечает жена. «Прекрасно, — говорит муж, — он ничего не говорил про восемьсот долларов, которые мне должен?» Мораль истории: делитесь с акционерами информацией о выданных кредитах, иначе Вы можете оказаться в неприятной ситуации. #health #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawarness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthday #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalgains #bewell #invisibleillness #healthandwellness #mentalstrength #depression #anxiety #mindfullness #healthymind #help #mind #mindset #healthylife #stress #mentalhealthsupport #control #recovery #overthinking #bipolar #wellness #livingfree

Visiting the Rocca has always been something Marica and I wanted to do and today we had the chance to just stroll around and enjoy the gorgeous castle, which Leonardo Da Vinci was very familiar with. I am super intrigued by this figure, so growing up knowing he'd drawn a map of my little hometown has always been a big plus for me. Also Caterina Sforza used to live here. She'd be all over the 'gram if she were a millennial and we'd all be "YASSS QUEEEN"ing under her posts.

@thehungryaustralien

This spoke to me so much tonight. Recovery is choosing over and over and over again. Every day. Every meal. Every snack. Every time you get up to ‘burn off’ what you ate. Every time you want to numb the feelings. Every time you pick up a blade. Every time you even think about it. Because every behaviour first starts as a thought. And we have the power to choose what we think. It’s true, it can be so so damn hard!! There’s not a moment where we can’t be diligent. But I promise you, there is a world beyond that is waiting for you that is way better than you could imagine. . . . . . #endthestigma #mentalhealthwarrior #itsoktonotbeok #mentalhealthawarness #recoveryispossible #mentalillness #recovery #mentalhealth #awareness #anorexiafighter #bulimiarecovery #beatana #anarecovery #quotestoliveby #mentalhealthquotes #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisordersurvivor #eatingdisordercommunity #edrecovery #edwarrior #edwarriors #edfighter #edrecovery #edrecovering

There was a time in my life when creativity effortlessly and fearlessly spilled from my finger tips. I wonder what happened to the girl that used to feel confident and brave enough to embrace each day without the fear of failure. The thought haunts me every day. I lost her a long time ago, but I will never stop searching for her. Like a mother who has lost her only child. I will not rest until I know what happened to her. . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #itsokaytonotbeokay #mentalhealthrecovery #depressionawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthweek #traumasurvivor #endthestigma #mentalhealthsupport #bpdawareness #mentalhealthwarrior #bpdrecovery #bipolarawareness #bipolardisorder #depressionawareness #bipolardepression #mentalhealthmeme #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalillnesscptsdwarriors #mentalhealthisimportant #mentalhealthsupport #anxietysupport #mentalwellness #bipolarbarbie #artistlife #artistsofinstagram

I just met the kindness dude from Budapest. Looks can be such an illusion. Turns out he came to London 3 weeks ago for a guaranteed job and when he showed up they said his English wasn’t up to par. 3 weeks he’s been on the street, he didn’t ask for a thing. He starts work at a clothing store tomorrow. The power of the human connection, I could feel his heart and I know he could feel mine. God bless anyone who’s in any form of crisis yet has the willingness to keep going. And told me of his depression, he didn’t have to say much. I could see it in his eyes.

BRAIN ZAPS Spin forgot to take the medication last night and is having head zaps(or brain zaps). Brain zaps are not fun and are a genuine side affect of skipping or stopping medication suddenly. They feel like an electric shock-like sensations in the brain and head. Skipping or stopping prescription medication - serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, SNRIs suddenly can be dangerous as weaning off this medication has to be done very slowly and gradually. #medication #withdraw #sideeffects

@mimi_letsgetstronger

Living with mental illness * It is hard. It's a challenge everyday. Getting out of bed. Facing the anxiety. Facing the constant feeling of something bad is going to happen. I was 15 when I experienced my first panic attack. I fell off my skateboard, hit my head and suffered a convulsion. I became petrified of loosing consciousness again. It really traumatised me. My panic attacks were frightening. I vomited. I shook violently. I felt I couldn't breathe and at any second I'd die. It's the most awful feeling I've ever experienced. * * For months on end I would suffer disabling panic attacks multiple times a day. My eduction suffered. My social life suffered. I isolated myself. I'd given up. I couldn't even step outside of the house on my own. My mum would drag me out of the house to go shopping. I'd sweat and shake. I'd feel like I was going to faint. I know you're thinking that's a simple task going shopping. Well it was like asking me to climb a mountain. I was terrified. I'd spend my day just waiting for the next panic episode. It was debilitating. * * Over time I started to slowly make small steps. I opened the front door and closed it again. That's a victory. I opened the front door and stepped outside alone. That's a victory. I managed 10 steps outside alone. That's a victory. Now 10 years later I have a job. I can drive. I can be outside alone (yes I still feel anxious but not to the extent when I was younger). I'm in a better place than I was. I have had to fight so hard and I have never given myself enough credit for it. I'm proud of who I am. I'm proud of the fact I've been through hell and I've got myself out. Never not be proud of yourself for facing your fears. What I'm trying to say is that slowly you will be able to move forward. It won't be forever. Once you feel ready to tackle your anxiety you just have to keep pushing. Never give up on yourself. Never take a bad day as a complete failure of your journey. Bad days happen. Some days we won't have the strength that is OK. What is important is that the next day we try again. Keep going. Keep pushing. You can do this. ❤️❤️

@zenbuddyapp

Having something to focus on when we #meditate helps us find our centre, particularly if the reason for your meditation is anxiety, depression, or another condition that's affecting your thoughts and feelings, - Using candles is a great way to do this, the flickering flame providing something bright and soothing. But sometimes we need something audible to focus on. Guided #meditations can do the same thing for us. Having a voice to focus on and lead our thoughts as we work through a #session is a great way to keep you focused. - Zen Buddy is designed to provide you with that focus, bringing you #GuidedMeditation sessions, soothing music, calming stories, a journal feature, and interactive elements that help you track and monitor your progress. - Sound good?

@heartbodysoullove

This is literally my to-do list for today, subbing in energy work sessions for the video games. ✨ Who am I kidding... I try to do all of these every single day! I choose to do yoga and art therapy at work. I run around outside with my kids or students whenever possible. I listen to audiobooks and podcasts on my commute. I rarely go a day without a workout, it’s like my medicine. I light candles and curl up at home when I need to. I snuggle my kids, my dog, my baby nephew. It helps me cope with the demands of balancing being a full-time counselor with being a full-time mama, and it just makes life more enjoyable in general. Weave these things into your life as much as you can. There’s nothing wrong with an occasional #netflixbinge and if I’m being perfectly honest, sometimes I have sitcom reruns playing the background because for some reason it soothes me. 😅🤷🏼‍♀️ Self-care isn’t just for Sundays, remember that! 💗🤟🏼

Moodit will tell you how many people feel similar to you and will give you real life mood enhancing tips from users around the world based on how you feel. It’s really that simple. And if I’m honest, it’s really helped me these last few weeks while being at my lowest. . . Click the link in my bio to download and try it. ♥️

PTW❗ The first picture was in our summerholiday last year. Just wanted to eat less and didn't allow myself good things at the buffet.😶 The second picture was after the summerholidays short before I went inpatient I was just unhappy and tired all the time😓 The third picture is me a few days ago. I learned to enjoy food again.😊 I would lie if I say I am recovered. There are still hard times but I never wanna go back.❤ So please try to recover it's worth it. Accept help and fight your illnesses you deserve better.🍀💙 I also have to remind myself to this sometimes but I am happy I started fighting.💪

This quote reminds me that there is not always a right answer with life and not always a right thing to do verses a wrong thing to do. We have different choices in life and what we choose has different results. Sometimes I get caught up in making the “right” choice- but it is not as black and white as we might think ✨ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalillness #improvement #radiatepositivity #positivity #selfcaresunday #mindfulness #mentalhealthwarrior #meditate #positivelife #happiness #inspirational #quotestoliveby #recovery #gratitude #selfcare #selfhelp #therapy #personalgrowth #mentalhealthsupport #personaldevelopment #mentalhealthblog #deepthoughts #emotionalhealth #mindful #spreadlove #inspiration #recoveryispossible

This is me and my clan (I have no clue what we were looking at).⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have 2 daughters (14 & 4) and 2 sons (12 & 11).⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Before my first was born...15 years ago...I remember thinking-oh God, I have to figure out this parenting thing.⠀ ⠀ So, I did what I usually do when I am feeling out of control - I read everything on the subject that I could get my hands on - and I read, and read, and I read so much on parenting that I decided to do my dissertation on the topic. Since then I have dedicated my life to parent education.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Then I had 2...3...4 kids and boy! my spiritual journey hit the fast track. These kids became my biggest gurus, my spiritual guides.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I learned a valuable lesson very early in my parenting journey - Parenting is an inside job.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can read all the books you want, but if you haven’t worked through your childhood patterns, if you haven’t worked with your dark side and named your fears, you will pass them on to your children (unconsciously) along with your genes. (I have not met a single parent in the last 15 years who isn’t doing this - so yes, you are doing it too).⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being a conscious parent is an ongoing journey. You will *never arrive to a place of consciousness (or ‘expertise’) where you won’t pass something on to your children. And those parents & families that look perfect or act perfect - they aren’t.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So yeah, my kids. My gurus. My mirrors. They drive me crazy, but I love them (I am pretty sure they would say the same about me). #consciousparent⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #YourMindMatters #dubaiparent #dubaikids #dubaischools #psychologydubai #mentalhealth #dubai

When we consider that it takes 9 months for a baby to develop and a year for them to start walking, then another year after that for them to start making 2 word sentences - we can start to see that we shouldn't expect to make big changes over night. Real change takes time, but oh, is it worth it. #DiscoverYourLight #TheLightHouse #lighthousearabia #TLH #growthmindset #quotestoliveby #demilovato #patienceiskey #psychologydubai #mentalhealth #dubai

Planting the seed is the first step. But the most important step is what comes after. The patience, the dedication, the determination, the not giving up, the knowing that the journey has begun and like any journey there will be days of sunshine, but some filled with rain too. Growth takes time, and it’s not a bad thing. This time teaches you to stand firm and strong. As cliched as it might sound, cherish the journey. Because when you’re eating the fruit on a beautiful day (and trust me you will) you’ll want to look back and give yourself a pat on the back!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image: @kaha.mind⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TheLightHouse #lighthousearabia #TLH #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #patience #growth #dubaipsychology #mentalhealth #dubai

There is no such thing as work-life balance. You will never arrive at this ‘balanced’ place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When do you normally find yourself saying, “I need some more work-life balance”? ...usually when you feel that things which are important to you are being neglected - typically family or health. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, the key is not to have equal distribution of work and life - but instead to do the things that are most important. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are times in your life that you will need to be fully focused on your work - because, in order to ‘put a dent in the universe’ with your life’s work, you will need to work extremely hard - and extreme is not balanced. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is in those times, when we are working intensely or passionately that we must do the things that are most important to us - love our family, and take care of our health. And, that doesn’t take a lot of time if we are disciplined in doing the right things - the most important things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There will also be times when you have things happen in your family, or with your health, that will require you to focus most of your energy on that front. Similarly, don’t aim to be balanced, only do the things that are most important at work. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ - It is not about work-life balance. - It is about work-life balancing. - It is about prioritizing the most important things. - It is about striving for internal balance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, figure out the people and things that are most important in your work and life, and then do the things that have the *highest impact* / highest return on your investment of time and energy. #YourMindMatters #worklifebalance #prioritize #fridayfocus #familygoals #workgoals #lifegoals #psychologydubai #mentalhealth #DrSalihaAfridi #dubai

I wish I had more pictures of me with the @lighthousearabia team (on the to-do list).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If there were more pictures, you would find me either looking at them with admiration, or being lost with them in laughter ...much like this picture.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have worked in clinics that have had toxic people. Everyday was a challenge. The energy was heavy and the drama was high. I would literally make myself sick with anxiety before going into work. It was draining.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I know that I cannot and will not work in such places ever again. I would not be able to compromise on those values. No way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I need to be working with people that I respect, admire, and look forward to seeing. People that inspire me, grow me, teach me, and support me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Everyone at @lighthousearabia is that for me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blessed⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #YourMindMatters #lighthousearabia #lovewhereyouwork #dreamteam #psychologydubai #dubai

Instead of finding my courage, I waged a war upon myself. Went into attack mode. Cut & burned my skin. Attacked my flesh. The seething inner pain escaped through my self inflicted cuts & burns. // When that horrible pain wasn't enough, I drank. The delicious elixir powerful to temporarily numb all of my emotional demons. // And when the alcohol & drugs were not enough to exhaust my inner raging fire, I swallowed an entire bottle of Klonopin. // After 10 years worth of ingesting 30+ psych med cocktails, psych wards stays, 1 drug & alcohol treatment center, various psychiatrists & therapists, I truly believed I was broken, useless, incapable, unlovable & undeserving-- a wasted life. // My precious coping technique- the "fuck you" & "fuck it" no longer worked. // I was left with 2 options: successfully die or work on my sufferings. • • • • • • Are you operating from the "fuck you" frequency or are you working on your inner wounds?
