Just a reminder to check on your friends- happy, sad, in between. For me, depression has reared it’s ugly head again recently (it was bad last summer leading me to think it was the weather- hot and miserable- yet here we are again) and that’s life for people who fight depression. Ups and downs. And it definitely doesn’t look the same for everyone✨
🙌❣❣❣⚡ @arievolving - "Up to 25% of the United States population has one or more disabilities. Wait, what? But there aren’t that many people in wheelchairs!
A large portion of disabilities aren't always visible. Many are never visible (unless you're a colonoscope or something). I'm still disabled and in pain when I'm not using my cane. I still need accessible routes on days when I'm not having a pain flare. In fact, those are the days I need to be extra careful — in order to preserve the relative peace I have for as long as possible.
If you’re not disabled/chronically ill - or even if you are - you have no idea if the person that “seems fine” is actually avoiding the door so that they don’t dislocate their wrist, or sitting down so they don’t faint."

Hi friends 👋🏻 a very gentle reminder for you ✨ self-care is not selfish ❤️
Günümüzde insan kendini gizleme, yaşadığı hayatı yansıtmama, kendisiyle ilgili maske takma, bir çok diğer olası nedenden ötürü kendisiyle ilgili bir sosyal medya algısı oluşturmaya çalışmakta.🎭 Mutlaka her insanın çevresinde şaşırarak izlediği ve incelediği zaman ‘ mutlu ve harika bir hayat yaşıyor’ şeklinde nitelendirdiği biri vardır.
Kendini maskeleyen insanların, zayıflıklarını , güçsüzlüklerini ve mutsuzluklarını gizlemek konusunda ne kadar uzman olduklarını biliyor muydunuz? 🤹🏻♀️ Yani o çok mutlu sandığınız eşiniz/dostunuz/arkadaşınız göründüğü kadar mükemmel bir hayata sahip olmayabilir. 📍 Günümüzde çoğu insan depresif duygularını ve ya kaygısını kendisi yaşayarak topluma karşı ortaya çıkaracağı ‘yeni ben’ den çekinerek bu duyguları yansıtmaktan çekiniyor. ——————-
📍Bu aşama çoğu zaman depresif kişinin çevresinden kopma ve yabancılaşma ( alienation) sürecine kadar ortaya çıkmayan bir duruma dönüşebiliyor.
Bu nedenle sevdiklerinizle iletişiminizi sadece sosyal medya ve mesaj ekranı içerisinde değil, görüşerek👀, konuşarak 🗣 , anlamaya çalışarak sürdürmeye önem gösterin. 😉
① remember you can start fresh each day
② recommit yourself to your goals
③ love yourself no matter what stage you’re at in the process
what you SHOULDN’T do
① hate yourself for getting off track
② feel hopeless and give up
③ do hours of cardio to make up for any “mistakes”
by remembering that each day is a new and fresh start, you should never go a day without hope. you can always recommit and start new, trying to improve yourself to do better. and loving ourselves through this process makes us happier and kinder to others.
yes, living a healthy lifestyle isn’t always the easiest, especially if you’re just starting. but don’t get discouraged! creating new healthy habits is LIFE CHANGING. striving to live my happiest and healthiest life has forever been for the better. you don’t need to stress or obsess over anything. take each day as it comes and take small baby steps. you will be headed in the right direction in no time!
i love you all so much! i hope you have an amazing weekend! 🌟 what’s one thing that helps YOU get back “on track” or in the routine of things? 👇🏽 share to help others around you! motivation comes in many different ways! 💛

For my birthday this year I am raising money for National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
I lost my dad to suicide as a result of years of addictions and mental health issues. Whenever someone makes this desperate and fatal decision, it is not only one but many lives that are affected. Families and relationships break down, split, suffer and so many souls are forever tainted by such tragedies.
Every little bit will help me reach my goal!
..one thing is for sure... no one ever tells the truth about thier current state of mind...

Would we be more honest if the world was less judgemental?
Or would world change if we were more open and honest?

Mental health wise I’m doing well I think I’m totally stable. I been on a course at recovery college doing a course on personality disorders and I worked out I don’t have a PD. I always thought it but doing this course has proven it to me.
Personality disorders and stuck in you, unfortunately you have to live with it 24/7. But I have episodes what are explained with my bipolar. When I am stable I don’t do the behaviours that are classic bpd/ eupd. My mh problems are episodic. I do agree I have anxiety when I’m stable but I don’t get mood swings ( other than when my lady friend comes and visits and even then I’m not as bad as I used to be) I don’t have reckless behaviours, self harm or suicidal delation. And I never that I know of have empty feeling ( I’m not even sure how that feels like)
So I’m going to question my PD. My cpn knows I’m questioning it. She hasn’t said her thoughts on it but she agrees I have a good point to question it.
All I know is when I’m stable my mh is great when I’m unstable my mh is totally crap. I don’t really have a middle ground. My episodes last weeks and I’m stable for a few months at a time. Personality disorders are your personality is wired up wrong ( that doesn’t mean your a bad person on you have a bad personality, it just means you had repeated trauma in your life and you struggle to cope on a daily basic, your trauma has made you cope with daily life and events and issues in the wrong way) seeing that I haven’t had repeated trauma in my life and when I am stable I can cope with everything thrown at me without using negative coping mechanisms. I think I’m normally fine.
I would hate to have a PD and have to cope with struggles and the stigma and still fight to see the next day.
I’m proud of every one of you guys to keep fighting.
Anyway that’s enough of me hope ur all ok #bpd#bipolar#borderlinepersonalitydisorder#eupd#emotionallyunstablepersonalitydisorder#mentalhealth

What is your favourite Surah (chapter) in the Holy Quran? Mine is Surah Ad-Duha. The verses in this chapter have the power to heal. I love it so much so that have it on my Vision board where I am reminded of how universal we are in our feelings. It helps me especially in moments where I'm not feeling too good about myself.
Let me tell you the reason behind its revelation and derived lessons and implications this surah can have in your life.
Surah Ad-Duha was revealed to Prophet Muhammad (saw) at a time when he had not received any revelation for six months, not even in the form of a dream! The Prophet (saw) was in a very disturbed state of mind, feeling negative and depressed and believing that Allah was displeased with him, had forgotten him, and did not want him as a prophet anymore. -
Don’t we have similar feelings in our lives? Times when our level of faith is low, our focus in prayer wavers and we feel a drop our connection with others, ourselves and God? We feel like our prayers are not being answered and not having a positive impact on our hearts, and worst of all the feeling that we’re horrible human beings, that Allah doesn’t love us or doesn’t care about us anymore? -
Surah Ad-Duha was revealed to the Prophet (saw) to relieve him of these negative feelings and to give him hope, positivity, and the assurance that Allah is with him no matter what. From it we too can find peace, hope, and a renewed faith in Allah when we go through similar states of depression, sadness, and hopelessness. -
The beginning of the chapter begins with 'Wad duha’— which means 'By the morning brightness'. This is the first thing you need to hear when you’re depressed: "Wake up, look at the sunshine! Everything in life is not doom and gloom– you just have to look up!" The best time of day is the morning; an inspiring period of time as it signifies hope and optimism...-
I highly encourage you to read and reflect on the tafsir (exegesis) of this surah.
Good Morning All ❤️💕

Ο Joseph Albers, γνωστός ζωγράφος του κινήματος Bauhaus και θεωρητικός της τέχνης, παρατήρησε πως αντιλαμβανόμαστε τα χρώματα ανάλογα με το περιβάλλον γύρω μας. Συγκεκριμένα, σε διάφορες μελέτες που ονόμασε Ασκήσεις Χρώματος, ο Albers πήρε χαρτιά βασικών χρωμάτων, τα έκοψε σε σχήματα και τα τοποθέτησε δίπλα και πάνω από άλλα χρώματα. Αυτό που προέκυψε από την ίδια χρωματική λωρίδα τοποθετημένη δίπλα ή πάνω από δύο άλλα χρώματα, ήταν ότι το «ίδιο χρώμα» εμφανίστηκε με δύο διαφορετικές αποχρώσεις. Ο Albers αναφέρεται σε αυτό το φαινόμενο ως Χρωματική Σχετικότητα.
Αυτές οι ασκήσεις, σύμφωνα με τον Albers, αποδεικνύουν πως, παρόλο που τα χρώματα είναι απόλυτα, αλληλοεπιδρούν με άλλα χρώματα, με αποτέλεσμα να τα αντιλαμβανόμαστε διαφορετικά.
Με παρόμοιο τρόπο, σύμφωνα με τη θεωρία της Συναισθηματικής Σχετικότητας οι εμπειρίες μας είναι ‘‘σχετικές’’. Δηλαδή, δύο άνθρωποι παρότι μπορεί να βιώσουν την ίδια εμπειρία, μπορεί σχεδόν ποτέ να μην έχουν την ίδια συναισθηματική ανταπόκριση-εμπειρία, διότι η αντίδραση του κάθε ατόμου βασίζεται σε προηγούμενες εμπειρίες του και στον τρόπο με τον οποίο επεξεργάζεται τα γεγονότα. Η διερεύνηση και κατανόηση προηγούμενων συναισθηματικών εμπειριών είναι πολύ σημαντική στην ψυχοθεραπεία.
Στο Roots Wellness Center πιστεύουμε ότι πρωταρχικό ρόλο παίζει η ατομική εμπειρία του κάθε ατόμου με αποτέλεσμα να προσαρμόζουμε τις θεραπευτικές μας παρεμβάσεις, στις ατομικές ανάγκες του κάθε θεραπευόμενου.

Research shows that wearing red lipstick has a positive effect in elevating a woman’s self-esteem. Studies also show that red lipstick is capable of increasing the perception of beauty, femininity, joy, sexuality and confidence in a woman. For me, something simple like wearing red lipstick, even with zero eye makeup, can instantly make my day better and make me feel good about myself. May sound vain, but putting on a bold red lip has definitely gotten me out of my funks and kept me going 💋⚡️; #SeeingRed
Hey, how are you doing? Seems like you've got lots on your mind. Let's talk, so you have been in a relationship for sometime, in the beginning you could feel the spark, the laughter, the joys, than a sudden drop in enthusiasm, lack of communication, avoidance, and when you try to speak out, the one that you thought had a soul connection with you feels annoyed and drifts away. You start conjuring up unhealthy thoughts, thinking whether they are cheating on you, flirting and more. So what happened? You need to trust yourself and the pattern. Do not try too hard, let go and take care of your mental health. Do not fret over people who are not fretting about you. Move on. We know it's difficult, but you come first. "In healthy development, trust evolves. How do we decide whether to trust? We share a feeling with someone and watch their reaction; if the response feels safe, if it is caring, noncritical, non-abusive, the first step of trust has developed. For trust to grow, this positive response must become part of a relatively reliable pattern… Trust develops with consistency over time." - E. Sue Blume, Secret Survivors
Seeing everyone in prep mode makes me miss competing. Good luck to all those working their arses off @metrogymhull
So here's a #throwback to the top 6 at the @naturalphysiqueassociation Yorkshire 2016 💪. Met a great bunch of guys that day and many I still talk to now.
Anxiety is a learnt behaviour and it can be unlearnt. Having suffered myself I know what I have done to overcome this disorder. Regardless of what people tell you, anxiety disorder can be removed from the brain as it’s a habit and just like any other habit, it can be forgotten or reduced.
Please like and share this page as I will be posting useful content to help people overcome anxiety.
Demi, I’m so sorry that this was done to you. Your struggles are all valid. Your feelings and pain are all valid. You didn’t deserve this kind of hatred. No one does. You have come so far. You are such a strong survivor. Please don’t let these horrible people take away the pride you should feel for everything you have accomplished.
Your #lovatics are so proud of you. We know how hard you are working and that this was a huge setback for you. But we are also so proud and thankful to see that you know and are willing to seek support when you feel you need it. We all need help and support at times. It’s such a difficult thing to reach out and self awareness is so important. Please don’t let all of this break your spirit. Don’t let them steal your happiness or let anyone keep you from doing what makes you happy, whatever that may be. You have so many people standing behind you, rooting for you, even though at times it may not seem so at all.
We love you Demi. You will be on our minds and in our hearts during this process and the time you are taking to heal. Please never forget how loved you are.

Good morning!! ☀️ Ever just asked yourself...? ... Sometimes when we hear of things like airport toiletries regulations or 30 mph speed limit signs on back country roads, it’s so dang easy to simply ask, “Who made that up?!” & to follow it up with a “well that’s stupid” & move right along through the rules that don’t make sense to us.. But what about us?? What about when spilled coffee decides that our entire day is ruined? What about when you’re SO forgets about date night & decides you’re not talking for the day?? What about when someone tells you you’re too small, too dumb, too powerless, not sensible enough for your dream.. & decides you should stick to your day job?? Here’s the kicker, it wasn’t the coffee, the husband, the nay- sayer... It was YOU who decided to react to whatever may be swirling around you. It was YOU who decided those things were relative & its YOU who’s entire day, month, year.. life(?) has been dictated! By coffee?! Did coffee really just decide you’re having a bad day?! Why get up early? why stay up late? Why pour your heart into what you’re writing about/ drawing/ building/ creating/ speaking about/ shouting from rooftops about.. Why put it out there?! WHY?! What was it that formulated your day ONE & every day after that? Why did you start?! And WHAT will hold you back?! As the maker of every rule in your life... I can tell you right now, it wont be the coffee. Every moment you lose focus, every time you lose your sight & vision is blurred- your beautiful, sparkly shiny dream.. gets kicked in the balls... And while you’re steaming about what Sally said in moms group or while you’re losing sleep over what your in laws think about your path, your pretty little dream is tapping her finger tips on her desk top & rolling her eyes like “COME ON SIS!! That wasn’t part of this!!!” LISTEN TO HER!! She is YOU! Be that voice in your head that says “NO! BAD!!” & then your little brain is like “well maybe if..” & then you snap “NO!! NO! NO! THAT 👏🏻 WASNT 👏🏻 PART 👏🏻 OF 👏🏻 THIS 👏🏻” ... who’s driving?! Who’s making the rules here?! NOBODY will ever care about your goals/ dreams as much as you do. And NOBODY will fight for them for you.
