I want to reach out to every single one of you hiding a mental illness because of fear. Fear that you will lose your job. Your friends. Your own dignity. I know there are some of you out there devastated because of a celebrity making a comment about personality disorders, whilst referring to a character in a current reality show that has displayed nothing but dishonesty, unethical behaviour, nastiness and emotional detachment. I want you to know, that although the words “personality disorder” have been attributed to her, that I KNOW there are those with that true diagnosis who walk this ground with integrity, kindness of heart and empathy. I KNOW you heard those words and slighted ... I KNOW you face enough stigma for something that was no fault of your own. I also know that people with personality disorders can be the most empathetic and caring ppl (and yes, some of the nastiest - because that’s across the spectrum of all humans, right?). You might be hurt by seeing the resulting comments out there about personality disorders, and you may have no one to talk to as you’re in hiding. You can talk to me..... Despite people’s incorrect assumptions, I believe in your goodness. 🙏🏽🙏🏽 #mentalillnessupport #ruok #borderline #personalitydisorders #bornwithit #mafsaustralia #stigma #mentalillness

Went past this today to find only two left. Released another 25 into the wild for #RUOK . 245/1000 cranes. . . . . Consider supporting @ruokday in their Conquer Kozi 2019 Trek, raising money to support, educate and empower people with mental illness. Link: https://tinyurl.com/yxpcnr9y . . . . . I will be folding more for adoption over the coming month, both to reach my goal and to hopefully encourage people to start a simple conversation with someone who may not be themself. To find out more on mental illness visit www.ruok.org.au If you or someone you know is experiencing pain or seems off, let them know you are there. . . . . #origami #origamicrane #origamiadoption #origamimademesmile #conversationcrane #goals #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #ruok #conquerkozi2019 #itaintweaktospeak #cranes4kozi @waggamarketplace
*Letting go* I need to be honest, letting go is hard for me. I grieve. Really grieve. Agonise for days as my ego gets caught up in the death rattle of whatever is going or has changed. Even if I completely and truly recognise where everything is headed and how wonderful the opportunity is, I still struggle. "So, what's going on, YW?" I hear you ask for those reading on. It's where I live. It's such a weird place politically, socially and energetically and I just don't belong here BUT it's exactly where I need to be. I have to let go of any notion of community here and it's a tough one - be here but not apart of it kind of thing. . Pain surfaces so we can clear it. . It's an ongoing process and a chat with a Wise Sister has confirmed it time to really unpack and resolve this. Yoni has spoken so it's time for cerimony. I'll travel tonight, down into the deep and we'll see what happens. See you on the other side 😚 Are you letting go after the full moon? Shit getting messy? Getting all 3D before it goes 5D? I'm here to witness. . . . . . . . #lettinggo #magic #burningsage #sageburning #yoniwonderland #fearoflettinggo #ruok #sheddingskin #3d #5d #gettingmessy #deeptalk #painfulmoments #anxiety
For me, one of the hardest parts in dealing with my #cysticfibrosis are all those little voices in my head, constantly asking if I’ve done enough. If I’ve done everything I was supposed to do, or can do, or should do. I know a lot of people deal with those types of anxieties: “Am I really accomplishing everything I’m capable of?” But my check list, my daily to do list, is full of things that are essentially Life & Death. I take close to 15 different medications a day, the majority of them symptom management; but, a handful of them are created specifically for Me and My Disease and are literally keeping me alive. Some days, I know I kicked ass. Got everything done And some! But other days... not so much. Some days I spend close to 5 hours on the phone; switching between my clinic, 1 of my 3 pharmacies, and my insurance company, and back again. Fighting and Arguing, Begging and Pleading for one of those specialty medications made for Me. Some days it can feel like no matter how much good I do for myself, there are a million other factors at play, working Me in the exact opposite direction. And on those days, I take as big of a breath as I can, and remind myself that Slow Progress is Still Progress. There is no race, there is no timeframe, there is no secret line I need to cross, no imaginary standard I’m trying to live up to. We’re here to give every day whatever the fuck it is we have for that day, then move on & deal with the next day as that day needs. And whenever the days get extra heavy, I just remind myself: slow motion is better than no motion baby . . . #65roses #cfwarriors #cysticfibrosis #cflife #cysticfibrosisawareness #cf #cysticfibrosisfighter #progressnotperfection #ruok #expressyourself #mentalhealth #curecysticfibrosis #cysticfibrosislife
Attending the the Virgin Pulse seminar on Friday and listening to Dr. B talk about strengthening employee mental health was incredibly insightful🙌🏻 ⁣ There is still such a stigma involved with mental health, especially within the workplace from both an employee and employer point of view👩🏻‍💻 ⁣ His view on health as a whole is that the mind and body are not separate. The connection must be there because if you don’t have health in one, you won’t have health in the other🧠👤

I’m just so proud of one of my children.. I don’t want to go too much into the story but the maturity and emotional Intelligence he has shown in the past 24 hours just lifts me up and gives me hope. As parents we try and guide and educate our kids as much as possible and you hope they’ve been listening.. yesterday I learnt that one definitely has been.. he is respectful and compassionate.. but he ain’t nobody’s bitch. Feeling good this Sunday.. hope you are too.. ❤️ Twinkles #morningmotivation #amanandhisdog #happyplace #find30 #micology #lifelessons #plus1day #morningwalks #chillymornings #happypuppy #bordercollie #family #itsyourchoice #attitudeiseverything #serenity #chooselife #RUOK #mentalhealth
CLASS 2003 👩‍🎓 👨‍🎓 Just can’t beat laughs 😂 with the brothers from BVC 💚❤️ Nothing shows a person more than just showing up, being there you don’t have to do much but listen 👂or just sit there and be company for them. Depression affects us all in one way or another it’s a lonely 😔 and dark place. I’ve certainly had moments in my life I will never ever want to relive again, I wasn’t shy of sharing my feelings but not everyone can voice it straight away or don’t know how to without feeling embarrassed or feel they are losing their identity in some way, I know that’s how I felt, sometimes not even knowing your going thru it and “just harden up” isn’t the answer its the hardest time for anyone no matter what age, thankful we didn’t loose our bro he’s ok and moving towards 🌟 but others aren’t so fortunate and that’s the truth. Mental Health affects us all. As a mate You feel guilty well I did knowing you could have done just a little bit more to be there and simply by asking “r u ok?” Came together with the brothers last night and yes plenty of “I love 💖 you talks” 😅 but even more mocks and laughing for dayZ. Nothing but love for my brothers from BVC ✊🏾💚❤️🕯 Remember to check up on your mates to see if they R OK! Never to judge just to be there always! Can’t wait to do this again ..Viard Reunion coming up I 🤔 Never take the Ptown out of these gois 😂 #truthislight #ruok #bvc #broz4life
Lady Gaga you are an absolute SUPERSTAR! ✨💫🙌🏼 What an amazing creative talent and authentic, compassionate human being. She is serving so many with her music, by living her truth and is doing great things with Born This Way Foundation. Here’s someone not afraid to BE herself and to use her talents to their fullest potential. If you haven’t seen her documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, do it! There’s nothing sadder than wasted potential. #ladygaga #astarisborn #real #raw #superbowlbestperformanceever #riseabove #letyourlightshine #erasethestigma #mentalhealth #ruok ? #bornthiswayfoundation #kindnessisthenewcool #authentic #brave

Even out of the darkness you can always choose to bloom. A huge shoutout to those carers of this world who selflessly see their parents, friends or family members to the bitter end. They struggle so much. There are so many stories of #heartache and #desperation . Grief sets in long before they are gone. These people are the angels of this world. The truly compassionate among us! I’m simply in awe of their strength. ❤️😊🙏🏻😊❤️#health #family #agedcare #agedcareaustralia #dementia #alzeimer #disease #depression #ruok #anxiety #exhausted #love #carers #youngcarers #australia #elderly #ipswichqld #agedcarenurse #agedcarefacility #nurses #doctors #hospitals #compassion #understanding #life #strength #healing

We don't practice mindfulness to get rid of, to change, or to fix, although it may have that temporary effect.⁣ We practice mindfulness to be with our feelings, just as they are. ⁣ Opening, embracing, welcoming, and saying "it's ok".⁣
This week has been hard. Life as a minister’s wife has often been challenging, but this week especially so. We got called out to a suicide - and it’s honestly been just so hard to process. • People say they don't understand why people do these things. I can understand why - I've even felt like that was the best option before, on multiple occasions. But the important thing for you to understand is that you don't need to understand why people do these things in order to be helpful - you just need to care enough to be there, no matter how uncomfortable or scared you feel. • What you do need to remember during tragedy (and always) is that: 1) There are people in your life who are struggling in ways you don't know. That person who was cross or curt? The one who always seems to have everything going their way? That girl who doesn't seem to want to talk to you? They may just be hurting. Always be kind. 2) You don't need to know what to say. When tragedy strikes, often people are scared and shun the grieving because they don't know what to say. Honestly, people want you to say a lot less than you think they do. Just love and be there and listen. 3) There are a lot of different reasons that people feel like suicide is an option and there are so many things that can go wrong with a person's mind. It's not your job to figure out what went wrong or what the state of their soul is so you can tell those left behind - they're gone. You can't change what happened - but you can know and trust they are in the hands of a loving, gracious, and just God who is a Righteous Judge. Their soul is out of our hands - but they are in God's hands and we can be confident that He will always do what is right. • Let God give you the strength, courage, and compassion enough to learn to weep with those who weep + bear their heavy burdens. And the other truth you need to hold firmly in your heart is this: there is always love, support, and help to be found. Never be afraid to reach out and find it. There are people want you to stay here more than you can ever know. #herlifehisway #justbethere
It's OK to not be OK. Just know, you're not alone! 💙⁣⠀ +⁣⠀ +⁣⠀ +⁣⠀ +⁣⠀ +⁣⠀ #sunday #ruok #itsok #positivity #positivevibes #blue #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #findingfranky #worry #anxiety
