don’t tear yourself apart • trying to keep others whole. . . stop burning yourself to keep others warm. stop making yourself available for people that don’t even prioritize you. as I grow into my late 20s, I learn some of the toughest lessons life has to offer. and through it all I’m trying not to lose empathy, understanding and love. I can’t keep you whole but I love myself too much to break, so I let go.


Here’s a little update; I’ve been really struggling with my ocd and my depression. I ended up having to go to an impatient hospital. I just got out today. I’m still struggling but doing a little better and I haven’t lost hope! 💜 #anxiety #depressionhelp #depression #sad #ocd #hope #mentalhealth #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters


It’s hard to hear. But you need to hear it. It’s hard to fight against habit but completely necessary. You will never begin recovery if you don’t ditch the old, destructive habits. #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #recoverywarriors #recovery #recoveryispossible #youcandoit #edawareness #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisordersupport #disorderedeating #disorderedeatingrecovery #disorderedeatingawareness #disorderedeatinghabits #mentalhealth #mentalhealthsupport #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery


Sometimes I wonder if it’s time to stop sharing things like this, to just leave the past behind, stop reliving it and focus solely on the future. But the bottom line is helping someone else also helps me which is a way protecting my future. I truly believe that someone somewhere needs to hear my story. If one in a thousand posts reaches one person struggling and my message gives them hope then it was all worth it. I never believed recovery would work for me. I didn’t think I deserved it. I tried and failed for so many years. I hurt so many people I love. The last couple of years I really just hoped I’d die rather than face another day. Well, someone had a better idea. A better plan for my life than to isolate in lonely darkness drinking myself to death. I know without a doubt that my purpose is to share my story to help others. To take a lifetime of pain and transform it into power. Into something useful. Something beautiful. If you’re struggling please know you’re not alone. You can get clean and sober. You so deserve to be happy. There is help and it is possible. If I can do it, anyone can. I am here. 💜 #myjourney #helpothers #dontgiveup #neverquit #miracles #soberlife #grateful #changeyourlife #recovery #mentalillnessawareness #suicideprevention #hope #faith #painintopower #superpower #yesyoucan #neveralone #imhere #freedomfromaddiction #endthestigma

While often said by well meaning people, this phrase dismisses the pain of trauma and mental illness that the recipient is experiencing. It also paints a rather unloving image of God. God never wills evil. God does not give you trauma, He does not will your pain. He wants your good and your happiness. There are no easy answers to suffering. I believe Catholicism has the best resolution but it isn't easily summarized in a quick line or two. We as a Church need to stop trying to do that.

I started uni and I thought I had control for over two month (I mean I wasn’t eating, that kind of control). But then something changed and depression was very brutal, not like the time I tried to end myself but it was hard. I’ve binged/purged for more than one month straight, 2/3 times per day. I feel like my submandibular salivary glands are going to explode. Now I have to go back to my hometown and I really don’t won’t to. That house it’s going to explode if I spend 6 minutes with my mom ffs. I’ll have to put on so many masks just to make her happy. That’s all right, I’m used to it but it hurts so much. At least she’s “happy”. However here at uni it’s been ok, I met people and they are good, I just Wish I could overpower this ed so I could actually have a “life” but it’s so fucking strong.


I’m on a time out from happiness I guess. Y’all idk I need meds.


👉🏾Depression is your rebirth . Truth talk:🙋🏻‍♀️I’ve been depressed twice in my life: first at age 19 while getting my degree. Again in my twenties while healing chronic gut problems . ✖️The photo to the left was taken at my rock bottom. I’m smiling but I’m also trying to hold my pants up by tying a flannel around my waste because my clothes didn’t fit. I hated eating & I was in chronic pain most days. My weight was a constant reminder of my pain . 💔My emotional pain hyjacked my gut, and then my gut issues made the emotional problems worse. It was a vicious, seemingly unstoppable cycle . 👉🏾I was at my all time lowest weight and health. I could barely speak with the cashier at the grocery store. I dreaded going out in public because I was unrecognisable to myself. Being me, was humiliating & unbearable . 🦋I’ve come to understand depression as a spiritual initiation. When you cannot lie to your body anymore, it finally immerses you into the final holding cell of realisation. Depression . 🗺Depression is the place you go to find yourself. It is the place that rips you from the clutches of deceit and floods you with truth (albeit painful truth) . 🌊You’ll go under the wave & think you’re dying, and in many ways, you are. You have to let death collect the lies, so you can truly live . 🤜🏽The truth is, many of us won’t face the truth unless we’re held down and forced to. That’s depression. Underneath the mask, it’s self actualisation . 👤No matter how many years depression has had you trapped in a dark room, YOU have the power to take your truth back . 🗣Depression is your spirit saying “no more lies” “no more abuse” “only truth”. I come back to this always, truth is the way of health. We are wired for truth so lies make us sick . 🙏🏽You may not believe in your own healing, but I do and I’ll be here when you’re ready to own your truth . . . #mentalhealthmatters #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillnessawareness #anxietyproblems #anxietyrecovery #mindbodyhealth #selfhealers #recoveryjourney #recoverywarriors #holistichealthcoach #guthealing #healyourlife #truthseeker #mindbodyhealing #holistichealing #mentalwellness #mindsetcoach #selfdiscovery #empoweryourself
