Sorry for being really inactive! I just had a lot of rough days. First of all, i survived another suïcide attempt wednesday and i’m not sure if i’m happy with it or not. But now i’m fighting, i changed my look 100% and want to look more chique. I painted my hair blueblack and i’m gonna rock the futere. I have a lot of noises in my head saying i have to kill myself but all i do is fighting ❤️

#therapieupdate
.
In den letzten Therapiestunden hatte sie mir insgesamt 2 Ratgeber mitgegeben.
Einen davon hatte ich bereits zur letzten Stunde durch und wir besprachen diesen.
Ich erzählte ihr das ich mich in einem beschrieben Kapitel wirklich gut wieder erkannte, obwohl ich das selbst niemals erwartet und sonst immer ausgeschlossen hätte.
Daraufhin und sagte sie, das sie gerne genauer auf dieses Symptom - und damit einhergehende neue Diagnose - eingehen will und eventuell eine weitere Diagnostik machen möchte, vorausgesetzt ich erkenne bei mir selbst noch weitere Symptome.
Allerdings wird das dann ein ziemlich langes Verfahren und noch dazu möchte sie mich eigentlich nicht mit Diagnosen zuklatschen, aber gleichzeitig wäre es informativ und sie könnte die Therapie dazu anpassen.
Naja ich denke wir werden es einfach auf uns zu kommen lassen..
Ansonsten besprachen wir noch die nächste Stunde, da man Freund mit kommen wird.
Er wird ihr über meine Erkrankungen alles erklären, was er wissen will und was sie als wichtig erachtet. 
Ehrlich gesagt, bin ich schon ein wenig aufgeregt, aber okay, schlimm wird es bestimmt nicht und ich mache mir - wie immer - nur umsonst sorgen.

I want to talk about grief & loss of a loved ones today.. Our family has endured a lot of loss over the years. It is Something I haven’t spoken about on my page before. I don’t cope well with loss and grief. I struggle to understand that the world can be so cruel to human beings. I shut down and internalise everything. The first loss I had was when I was 5 years old. My grandad passed away. It was a confusing time. I didn’t understand that my beloved grandad had gone. I still hold memories in my heart of him even from a young age.The 2nd loss was my nan at 17. I didn’t cope with this well. My nan had a stroke when I was around 10yrs old. They told us she has a day to live. I always remember going to the hospital to say goodbye. It was heartbreaking. She went on to live for 8 years and unfortunately had another stroke and passed away. Having to go and say goodbye all over again was horrendous! We then lost my cousin jay. 12 yrs old taken suddenly from the family. It is 9 years today we lost jay. We then lost my another cousin Brett. 30 yrs old. A strong character in my family. Full of life and a bad influence on me. Always Sneaking me cigarettes and weed. I have amazing memories of an amazing human being! We then lost my auntie sue a year later. We all say she died of a broken heart from losing Brett. My uncle has been through hell losing his son and wife within a year and is just an amazingly strong man!! We then lost my dads best friend.martin..He was more like my uncle.. I have amazing memories of Martin we went on so many amazing holiday with him and his partner. Canada, America. Just great great memories and my most recently loss. My grandad Brian. We lost him a few months ago. He had parkingsons and dementia. Again, he had a fall and we were told he had 2 weeks to live. My mum was in Australia and I was up the hospital every night feeding him dinner and holding his hand. He pulled through but he got ill again and this time he just wasn’t strong enough to pull through. I think it’s always important to talk about our loved one we have lost. It keeps their memory alive. Grief is a horrendous thing.. And i wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy!

I’m sorry your thoughts are spinning around in your head. That there’s no time to act yet no time to rest. That you can’t catch a break & that you're misunderstood. I hope that even in this darkness, you listen to the part of you that is sure your anxiety isn’t all of who you are, because your pain doesn’t define you. I hope that you can let yourself rest, breathing through the time it takes until your fight rises up over this. I hope that you’ll give yourself permission to have a bad day, & to survive it. & then, one day soon in this life, I hope you’ll give yourself permission to really live. I hope we all can really live. #foryou #anxietywarrior

Here's your daily reminder! 💚
Mental illnesses are not always visible, we never know what somebody else is truly going through or how much they could be hurting inside! ▪️
So this is your reminder to always be kind, a smile goes a real long way! Maybe give a smile to a stranger today. You might think nothing of it but to them it could mean a huge deal. You might just make their day! 💚

So much of life comes down to willingness, when you think about it.⠀
⠀
★ Willing to choose kindness.⠀
★ Willing to view others as equals.⠀
★ Willing to treat yourself with respect.⠀
★ Willing to set boundaries.⠀
★ Willing to put in the effort.⠀
★ Willing to change.⠀
⠀
And yes, willing to learn. Learning isn’t limited to education either. Are we willing to learn about other people? Are we willing to grow in empathy? Are we willing to pursue personal growth and learn how to release our past or change direction for the future?⠀
⠀
Are we willing to learn how to let go of or undo our stubborn habits that sabotage our health?⠀
⠀
Half, if not more, of the education process is learning how to ask the right questions. ♡

Comparing yourself to others will steal your happiness. There will always be someone ‘skinnier,curvier,prettier,richer,more successful’ than you in your opinion!! But that’s what it is, it’s YOUR opinion! Puppies are cute and so are rainbows and they look nothing alike!! Just because someone is beautiful,doesn’t make you any less beautiful. If you keep comparing yourself to everyone you meet,you will end up constantly miserable! Whether you thought you’d have children or be married by a certain age like your high school friend or have your first house. Life can’t be planned out like that. Find what makes you happy at this moment in time,life isn’t a rush or a competition. Social media doesn’t help us in these situations. Try remember that no one will post their own flaws or what they are missing for the world to see 💜

Do it for you! 🙌
—
So many get caught up in what will others think. 
In the past I use to focus on doing things to impress others. I soon realized the only person that I should be trying to impress is myself. 🔥
.
If you are setting out to achieve something, do it for you. 🙌
Don’t always be looking for other peoples approval.
Achieve the things you want.
Be proud of yourself and what you can accomplish.🔥🙌💪

I often try to find approval from others in what I do, but the truth is, you really don’t need it. The only person you need permission from is yourself!!! Comment ‘YES!’ if you agree ❤️

So very proud of #Distance @theparktheatre. It’s a subject matter close to my heart and the way the team has put this production together with such care, compassion, detail and talent has blown my mind. The best bit though, has been the audience response... here is what some of them have to say...

This is so Important to remember. Please don’t feel weak for taking medication for your mental health! You wouldn’t shame someone for taking antibiotics for an infection or painkillers for a broken arm so why is there so much judgement on people taking medication for their mental illness. It is also ok if you don’t take medication either. You do what you feel is best for your mental health. I feel I need medication to help me.. I don’t sleep and suffer from intense paranoia(also delusions) and mood swings. This is why I’m on a antipsychotic/moodstabliser. I have been on couple of antidepressants over the years for long periods of time but I find they make me feel completely numb and in my opinion it’s worse than feeling everything. They made me more depressed and hopeless. I couldn’t cry, I couldn’t feel. It was horrible. If that makes sense? I don’t know if anyone has felt the same and now doesn’t take them for that reason? I also had a bad experience with recently fluoxine and had a big reaction that sent me into a mania like state. So my psychiatrist has decided to keep me off of antidepressants for the time being. .

Some will call me absolutely crazy and others will call me determined but I’ve just got home from my 50 minute run. Every part of me is drenched and my clothes are glued to me. Today I ran the fastest I have for 50 minutes on my continuous run. Why, did I decide to go for a run in the pouring rain you ask? Yesterday, I said to myself I’m going to have a lie in and when I wake up I will go straight for a run. Nothing was going to stop me. I didn’t know the weather was due to pour down this morning but just because it’s raining isn’t an excuse. I’m training harder than I ever have and I’ve never felt so strong. I’ve got fire in my belly and I am going to achieve my goals. RUNNING IN THE RAIN - exercise, therapy and a shower......all at the same time!

I’ve got fire in my belly and I am going to achieve my goals. RUNNING IN THE RAIN - exercise, therapy and a shower......all at the same time!

I saw this on Pinterest tonight and loved it! Please swipe to read all images. My husband was like that’s totally what happens to you. When I flare this explains so perfectly what happens. To all my chronic illness friends there is hope in educating others. And also so helpful to see an illustration from someone who gets it. I have no idea who’s this is. If you know let me know. Love tp you all. #autoimmunedisease #chronicillness #sjogrenssyndrome #cfs #fatigue #education #crash #invisbleillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #spoons

Absolutely love this lass! Who would have thought we only met each other a year ago at college! Now she is one of my closest friends. 
Lush, much needed day in York with the girls! Even if I did get on the wrong train home and ended up in Durham! Oops!
Now to regain focus and get on with the world domination malarky!

Some will call me absolutely crazy and others will call me determined but I’ve just got home from my 50 minute run. Every part of me is drenched and my clothes are glued to me. Today I ran the fastest I have for 50 minutes on my continuous run. Why, did I decide to go for a run in the pouring rain you ask?

The thoughts that you think are so important for the results that you have in your life. If you see only the negative, fear the worse, or are consumed with worry, that’s what you are going to feel. The way that you feel will always determine the way that you act, behave and the results that you have. Encourage yourself to train your mind to be a resourceful tool that empowers you in how you think and feel so that you are not kidnapped by negative thoughts and emotions.

My class message today was inspired by the incredible @kat.john She posted this quote that struck a chord with me:
.
.
Worry
.
Using the present moment to feel f#%kin shit about shit that isn’t happening.
.
.
Sounds familiar doesn’t it.... something I too had to hear.
.
.
We spend so much of our time living in the future, worrying about shit that might or could happen. We forget that in doing so - the present moment, HAPPENING NOW, just slips away, leaving us spending far too much time  in a state of stress or panic rather than at peace and present. What’s more, we waste time and energy on shit that isn’t happening and may not even happen.
.
.
It’s a daily practice - but what happens if we focussed on the here and now. How much of our anxiety and stress would subside, even just a little.....
.
I challenged my crew to worry only about the present moment in class, that at any point, they were safe and elevated by each other’s energy.
.
.
How do we grow, if we just don’t face each moment and deal with it as it happens. Life isn’t always going to be a bed of roses...... SHIT HAPPENS PEEPS !! But the beauty is in learning from the falls.
.
.
Happy Sunday amazing ones xx

➰ Возможно я и ошибусь, если употреблю слово «большинство» в каком-то совершенно общем плане в разрезе этого поста 🙂  Но опираясь на личную статистику, могу уверенно констатировать, что большинство из людей, которых я знаю, так или иначе сталкивалось со страхом «потерять себя»... Причём эта потеря согласно все той же статистике чаще всего ассоциировалась с такими процессами, как вступление в «серьёзные отношения», радикальная смена места жительства, рода деятельности и т.д.  Лично мне потребовался довольно продолжительный период размышлений, чтобы дойти своим закостенелым мозгом до, казалось бы, весьма очевидной сути... Которая для меня открылась в том, что просто физически невозможно потерять то, что ты ещё не обрёл... И как бы парадоксально это ни прозвучало.. НО именно обретя, ты перестаёшь бояться потерять! ➰

The pain experienced during #mentalilllness is often magnified when it's kept in private. Having the courage to be transparent with someone about what's going on for you can often be a crucial step in the journey towards recovery and change. Don't leave your story untold #SpeakUp 🗣

So just woken up... quite a lay in for me. Head is feeling a little fuzzy after all the gins last night. Today I have nothing planned. A day in bed doing nothing is what I need. Does anyone else need days to recover not just from hangovers but from the anxiety and adrenaline from going on a night out. Feeling very fragile this morning. .

There are so many immense breakthroughs, setbacks, growth, loss and triumph when it comes to creating a stable mindset. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It isn't overnight. But it is life-changing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There isn't some woo-woo ritual that miraculously takes away the shadows in the mind. It's daily, it's consistent, and it's support. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Implement a daily routine that begins to serve you better. ACTUALLY meditate (because it does help), speak with a professional who can support you towards growth @mindcharity, move away from negative situations and reach for the positive (no, you are not a burden). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Reach out to your friends, your family, your work mates and simply tell them you are working towards happiness because that is a worthy thing to work towards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I understand how and what you're feeling, so reach out... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tag a friend you know will do GREAT things and share the love xxx ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Love always, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

What is a panic attack? 
A panic attack is an exaggeration of your body’s normal response to fear, stress or excitement. It is the rapid build-up of overwhelming physical sensations, such as: • a pounding heartbeat • feeling faint • sweating • nausea (feeling sick) • chest pains • feeling unable to breathe • shaky limbs, or feeling like your legs are turning to jelly • feeling like you’re not connected to your body. 
What can I do about panic attacks?
Talk to someone you trust 🕺
Try a breathing exercise 🧘‍♀️ Try shifting your focus 💭 
Listen to music 🎧 
Try reassuring yourself 🤔 
Physical exercise 🏋️‍♂️ Keep a diary 📖 
Eat a healthy diet 🥗 
Complementary therapies 💆‍♂️ Support groups 🗣

There are some good Self-help resources here: https://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/

[Re:music industry] Our field of work is unhealthy. Great financial risk, unlike return of investment, long hours, limited to no structure, lots of racism and sexism, locker room homophobia and transphobia, late night social engagements, the glamorisation and encouragement of alcohol and drug take. Surely, the aforementioned stress caused by newly integrated technologies is definitely playing its role too - but it’s not that we didn’t already have problems. If the industry wants to stop having a mental health problem, it should work for it. Each for their own and all for all. We have a problem and our industry needs a staged intervention ASAP.

Clear Quartz is powerful, it is also programmable, meaning we can charge it or dedicate it to hold any attribute we wish.
_
If you are feeling self-conscious and you're feeling like you need support, you can charge Clear Quartz with a confidence attribute. If you're looking to improve your feelings of self-worth, you can charge Clear Quartz with a self-love attribute.
-
When the moon is full tomorrow, place your Clear Quartz beneath it’s light. Place another stone next to it; one that you want to apply its charge to your Clear Quartz. For example, you could place a rose quartz next to your Clear Quartz to infuse the programmable stone with self- esteem, restore confidence & balance emotions. The moon has cleansing and charging properties, and will wipe your stones clean of energetic buildup, while transferring the attributes of one stone to the other; in this case, the rose quartz to the Clear Quartz. This type of charge stays potent for the entire moon cycle.

Remember we always have #youinmind

‘My courageous heart’ is today’s topic for the #selfcareseptember photo a day challenge, and this is my courageous heart ❤️ writing a speech🗣⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Public Speaking is possibly my biggest fear – so obviously this means I put myself through the torture of public speaking every two weeks; obviously🤦‍♀️⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
At the time, signing up to do it seems a good idea, but right now as I am trying to write a speech ready for Thursday, the fear is taking over😱⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am a firm believer in doing things that scare you, outside of your comfort zone really is where all the good stuff lies💯⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I do this often – sign myself up to things that petrify me – regret agreeing to it - then absolutely love that I did afterwards🤷⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I say this, but at the same time the thought of standing up in front of people and speaking this Thursday is giving me heart palpitation – why do I do this to myself🙈⠀

Walk with the wise
and become wise, 
walk with fools
and you fall. 
Fall so low a stone
wall is all you'll know. 
Choose my friends 
wisely I did not do. 
Foolishly I did not
believe in powerlessness either, 
not anymore,
have I not learnt anything? 
After so much blood and tears
I turn to shears. 
Walk with the wise
and become wise.

The Leader. 
I love myself. It was my self love that got me everything that I wanted. A Biomedical Science degree. Long healthy hair. Holidays abroad. Self esteem and confidence. 
None of this came from the outside. It did not come from my treacherous family. From school. From the friendships that came and went. 
It came from myself. 
Ask every successful human who believed in themselves how they made it. 
Through Selflove. 
Many abandon their interests desires and beliefs to collect human beings that shield them from loneliness. Shield them the shame of the title 'loner." In this there is an exchange of power. 
If you constantly need nourishment from the outside world to feel good you will never ever be truly free. 
Humans do exactly what they want. If they care for you will. If they don't care for you they won't. 
Human connections are often fleeting. Come and go. Whereas you will have you until the day you die.

You take care of you. You be your own best friend. You are never lonely if you love the person your a lone with.

Develop a deep intimate relationship with yourself and you will find you no longer need anyone to prosper. You always have you. Eventually you will meet someone who Desires to know you as deeply as you know yourSelf. A life Partner. 
This Mentality is the trait of the Leader.

None of this came from the outside. It did not come from my treacherous family. From school. From the friendships that came and went. It came from myself. Ask every successful human who believed in themselves how they made it. Through Selflove. Many abandon their interests desires and beliefs to collect human beings that shield them from loneliness. Shield them the shame of the title 'loner." In this there is an exchange of power. If you constantly need nourishment from the outside world to feel good you will never ever be truly free. Humans do exactly what they want. If they care for you will. If they don't care for you they won't. Human connections are often fleeting. Come and go. Whereas you will have you until the day you die. You take care of you. You be your own best friend. You are never lonely if you love the person your a lone with. Develop a deep intimate relationship with yourself and you will find you no longer need anyone to prosper. You always have you. Eventually you will meet someone who Desires to know you as deeply as you know yourSelf. A life Partner. This Mentality is the trait of the Leader.

That sunshine-y goodness is contagious ❤️#weekend#sunday#sunshine
First tattoo: DONE! 
Growing up in a conservative home/community/religion, meant that I thought of my body as something that didn't really belong to me, and all the decisions I made about it was supposed to be in sync with what outside forces (like an invisible higher power, or my parents, or school or church) would want for me. I've always loved the idea of a tattoo but grew up feeling immense guilt about it. 
Now, I'm almost 27, and this experience was actually a liberating one for me. It was probably the first time in my life that I made a decision that actually helped me say that this body is mine, and I can do whatever I want to do with it. 
And I'm SO happy with the results. 😍

Thank you to @popluvito and @realkbot for this amazing gift and for pushing me to do it, every time it looked like I was going to chicken out. And a shoutout to @chulumanco who decided that he wasn't going to hold my hand through it, but took on the role of Ultimate IG Bae instead. 💙🧡 [Tattoo was done at @blackandwhitetattoos by Dave]

The sharing of the trauma story in therapy “therefore serves a purpose beyond simple ventilation or catharsis; it is a means towards active mastery” – Judith Herman, MD ✨

On the Blog: 1-2-3 Healing & Post-Traumatic Growth. My approach to counseling clients working on grief, loss, and trauma issues is adapted from Dr. Herman’s brilliant book, “Trauma and Recovery: The Aftermath of Violence - From Domestic Abuse to Political Terror” (1992). She’s considered to be the “Freud” of trauma.✨

Catching waves is my new go to blues beater.
#surfing was something I'd always wanted to try, and I succeeded in passing my first lesson quite happily last month in Devon, kneeling on the board upon a (friendly) mini barrel wave at #Puttsborough, whizzing towards the shore, feeling utterly liberated. It was truly exhilarating and I can't wait to improve on my primary (primal?) efforts again next year. Actually I'm really excited to learn that there is a #surfing lake being built in or near #Bristol. #Gnarly! Thanks for sharing this @emilystravels

Whilst strolling round Windsor with my lovely gal pals I stumbled upon this card that really angered me (so apologies in advance for this rant!). I understand the general message of this card is a positive one however i find the language- littered with shame heavy slogans very troubling. ○ "Suck it up, so you don't have to suck it in" "You dont get the ass you want by sitting on it" •

Yes, many people use exercise as a weight loss tool but why is it assumed that it is the primary reason that people exercise?! Why do gym ads/silly cards in silly shops never suggest lowering cholesterol/reducing stress/general INTERNAL health as a worthy gym goal? It seems exercise has been glorified as an all-out war on our bodies. The "go hard or go home" "excuses don't burn calories" approach, the military style drills and general glorification of pain?! 💩 •

At the bottom of this card it reads "daily exercise and healthy eating leads to increased awesomeness". Although this is a well meaning phrase- it implies that pushing your body to extremes & normalizing severe discomfort will make you on the whole, a better person (hint: it won't). 👍 •

By no means am i saying that intensity in exercise is a bad thing- i suppose its all about finding the middle ground. But i am so sick of gyms/fitness industry in general ubiquitously shaming people into exercise as opposed to encouraging them. 👐 •

I really believe that exercise can boost our physical & mental health when done in the right way, however (in my pointless opinion- lol sorry for the ramble this defs is one of those annoying posts) the fitness industry fails to acknowledge that the current "sweat your way to success" approach to exercise can often do more harm than good grrrr ○ (V soz for the rant & maybe im just being overanalytical/fussy buuuut meh if you don't like it then just scroll on past ⏩📱) •

SMILING MIND 
I love these beautiful Icelandic horses that befriended us at a farm airbnb.  The one on the left was very sweet and it looked like she was smiling at me.  She was so relaxed,  despite the freezing temperature and wind.

This photo triggered a memory of a terrific free meditation app that a teacher told me about called  Smiling Mind.  It was developed by psychologists and educators to help with emotional balance.  The brief meditations are split into age ranges from 7y to adulthood.  I gave it a try myself and was so relaxed that I dosed off.  Worth trying, as you can carry it everywhere on your phone and use it as needed to self soothe.

Brussels, Belgium where a late night kebab literally saved my life! Brussels in a Day where beetles decorate palaces and a cave with 2004 beers actually exists. Not to mention the idolised statues of kids peeing.

All the independent traveling women put your hands up! A solo female traveler is somewhat of a rare breed. We are often called "brave" which is a title still difficult to digest. Adventurous, yes. Independent, yes. Travelers, hell yes. Simply wanderlusters that couldn't wait any longer. We're asked why we are not traveling with others, we each have the same answer. If we waited for someone the four of us would not have had this moment and the opportunity to make the memories to follow.
.
From France, USA, Canada and Australia. Our conversations don't revolve around the mundane instead comparing countries and continents, similarities and differences, where we've traveled and where is next on our hit list. .

Lesson: 1) She who waits may wait forever 2) Black swans flying together, if only for a moment, is rare and lovely occurrence to experience

These guys! Oh these guys. They are the prefect duo to dint the stereotypical ways of the French. Julien and Alexandre are traveling Croatia in true bromance style. Alex having spent a decent stint in Australia has managed to pick up an Aussie sense of humour delivered with a French accent. We went for a beverage the boys gave me a profanity education in French. There are not many hostel goers who can stur you after a 6am return from a pub crawl without the need to kill but these two with their "G'day mate" and "Hey Aussie" at the break of dawn did so with such humour they just got away with it. It would be a hoot to catch up with these two when  in France. Possibly still intoxicated but with a checkout time looming this photograph was taken. 
Lesson learned: Thankfully with stereotypes there are always the exceptions.
