I’m reading a book at the moment - it’s called Solve for Happy by Mo Gawdat. I saw him speak at a conference and he’s talk was the most inspiring thing I have ever experienced in my life. He went through some horrible stuff, he lost his adult son by a medical professional’s mistake during a surgery. Now, that’s a pretty huge trauma. I sort of feel I’m not sure I could live after a trauma like that. I am not sure if I could live if my partner died. But he lived and he says it was a conscious choice. His book about happiness, which he believes is our default setting. Happiness = the absence of unhappiness. We learn to be unhappy and our brain is flawed in a way that enables us to prolong our pain and turn it into suffering. We don’t suffer because of the things that happened to us, we suffer because of the way we THINK of the things that happened to us. But he thinks we’re in charge and we can, by hacking our own mind, can achieve the state of joy that withstands all the hurdles and pain in life. Whatever happens in our life, we can handle it and see exist in the state of joy. We will still experience pain and discomfort but by accepting things how they are, we don’t feel the need to extend it into suffering. It’s the ultimate acceptance of life as it is, our place in it and to live it to the full with whatever we are given. Now, that’s a positive outlook on life. It’s inspiring me and making me so happy as I’m reading it. So, I thought I’d share. ☺️ #quotes#inspirationalquotes#inspiration#solveforhappy#borderlinepersonalitydisorder#bpd#bpdlife#bpdrecovery#mentalhealthawareness#recoveryquotes#recoveryisworthit#recoveryispossible#dailyquotes#dailyquotesforinspiration

Quoi de mieux qu’un bon chocolat chaud ☕️ de chez Brioche Dorée avec sa mère, pour se réchauffer et se requinquer après une dure journée de cours ? 😱🤗
Je suis littéralement LE-SSI-VÉE alors j’ai décidé de m’offrir ce petit plaisir pour retrouver un peu d’énergie ☺️
Je crois que les chocolats chauds sont devenus mes talons d’Achille 😋
Finalement, j’ai eu le résultat de mes deux contrôles d’hier. Ils ne sont pas mauvais même si j’aurais aimé mieux !
Beaucoup de contrôles faits et d’autres annoncés pour la semaine prochaine...😱
Actuellement, j’attends l’heure de ma réunion parents profs, en faisant des fiches de révisions à Brioche Dorée 😅

buon pomeriggio tate🌸
scusate se non mi faccio sentire molto spesso, è che le mie merende non sono sempre molto fotografabili😹📸.
in questi giorni sta andando abbastanza bene, soprattutto a scuola🏫, non l’avrei mai detto ma è così.
le ore volano via veloci e, anche se mi annoio, riesco ad interessarmi ad alcune lezioni📚.
coi miei compagni la situazione è un po’ migliorata, certo non parlo ancora più di tanto, ma sono un pelo più sciolta e a volte riesco a conversare un pochino con alcuni.
purtroppo non vedo da un po’ una mia amica👩🏻, quella che soffre di attacchi di panico😨della quale vi ho parlato in un post tempo fa.
non si fa vedere in autobus🚌da un po’ e sono molto preoccupata per lei😔. lei non sa che io so del suo problema, anche se vorrei tanto lo sapesse. sono sicura che se si provasse a sfogare riuscirei a capirla, perché soffro molto d’ansia anch’io.
oggi a pranzo🍽ho litigato con mamma👩🏼, non capitava da un bel po’ di tempo e che dire, mi sono rovinata una giornata che sembrava essere partita bene. il motivo? sempre per colpa sua, di ana☠️.
questa mattina mamma👩🏼ha preparato per me e per mio papà👨🏻una torta salata, dato che stasera dovrà andare a cena🍴fuori con delle sue amiche.
appena sono tornata a casa🏠 me l’ha fatta vedere e da lì sono impazzita.
ci aveva messo chili di parmigiano🧀sopra, ben sapendo che io non lo mangio, sembrava l’avesse fatto apposta.
ho cercato di spiegarglielo in qualche modo, ma avevo già capito che si era arrabbiata😡, e allora io ho fatto altrettanto. ha iniziato a riempirmi di insulti solo perché mi sono lamentata di quel parmigiano🧀e allora io l’ho spinta. con altrettanti insulti ci siamo messe a pranzare.
ero talmente nervosa in quel momento che mi era passato l’appetito, avrei voluto alzarmi da tavola e andarmene, ma non l’ho fatto.
successivamente lei è andata fuori a stendere i panni e io ho iniziato a fare i compiti📝.
mentre facevo merenda mi è arrivato un messaggio💬da una mia amica (la quale sa del mio dca): “ehi, domenica ti va di uscire a cena insieme coi nostri genitori?”. sono rimasta bloccata.⤵️

Heyyy🌈 ich melde mich auch mal wieder 🙈
Die Woche ging bei mir iwi mega schnell vorbei🤷🏻♀️
Es läuft eigentlich ganz gut in der Schule. Ich gewöhne mich wieder langsam dran und die anderen werden für mich vertrauter. Der Stoff war bis jetzt auch richtig easy!
Heute hat ich dann direkt nach der Schule wieder Therapie. Hab ich jetzt jeden Dienstag und Freitag. Dir heutige Stunde war nicht so leicht. Mein Unbewusstsein hat hat kein Vertrauen mehr in andere Personen. Ich gebe automatisch nicht so viele Informationen her, weil ich sonst Angst habe, verletzt werden zu können. Gleichzeitig sehne ich mich aber nach einem Menschen, der mir endlich mal zuhört und mich versteht... #porridge with #banana and #soyyoghurt 🌾🍌😍
Das Porridge ist von @3bearsporridge . War ganz lecker aber mir schmecken Haferflocken ohne alles am besten!🙈❤️

Thrive is taking off! I’ve chosen the first recipient & am starting to put together a tailored care package. You can help by donating to the link in the bio at @thrive.carepackages , donating items or writing a message of support that I’ll write out alongside your username and country- so you can help out even if you can’t donate.

No one will ever love you as much as you want them to until you learn to love yourself unconditionally. A lesson that took me a long time to learn, but once I became aware of this, it was a very powerful day, indeed.
Get going. Make it fun, create a game out of it and take action. We are awesomely talented, creative, sensitive, brilliant beings. At first, it is like, how will I stay sober, then it is how will Iive my life as an awesomely talented, brilliant being?! Do something. The human brain is always thinking, it is normal, getting lost in the thinking and not taking action is normal too, but it is the root cause of so much pain and suffering. Shit ya'll, I get it. The pain and suffering can feel like a cozy blanket because it is so familiar. The other side, where all the magic for your life is waiting for you to expand into, it is not so familiar so it is easier to stay stuck. Stop it! ha! But for real, we made a choice to put down the addictive behavior to stop checking out. Right now, we have the choice, the freedom to choose to get going. What will you get going on this weekend that will create FREEDOM and BLISS in your life? I love you and START IT!
I say hello to the bunnies, skunks and deer that I meet on every pre-dawn run. Because it feels good. I feel good. I feel at peace when I’m out there…talking to animals….Hmmm…maybe I shouldn’t tell people that…. But really, life gives me ENOUGH these days. Being clean and enjoying life gives me what I need.
In our addiction, we could never get enough. Even too much was never enough! There was a spiritual emptiness inside us. Though we tried as hard as we could to fill that emptiness ourselves, we never succeeded. In the end, we realized that we lacked the power to fill it; it would take a power greater than ourselves to do that. So we stopped using, and we stopped trying to fill the emptiness in our gut with things. We surrendered and made way for that power to begin the process of filling our inner void.
That power for me is love. I accepted love for myself, love for others and love from others.
Slowly, our inner emptiness is filled with love.
Today I choose to live in the fullness of recovery. I celebrate my conscious contact with love by freely sharing with others that which has been freely shared with me.
I also talk to animals.

I tried kale for the first time after idk how many month & it tastes very good!
I feel kinda less controlled when I try new things, even though I thought I was in control when I was deep in my disorder.
The only thing you're doing is making strict rules over something clearly unnecessary. You just take your precious time.
