I lost some of the closest friendships of my life because I spoke up.
Unfortunately, the friendships ended. It was completely to my surprise. I truly thought they would fight for our friendship, understand where I was coming from and we’d try to make things better together. I didn’t get my fairytale ending. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It was hard for me to let go of the hurt, I started looking at myself and why this could have happened. Was something wrong with me? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It wasn’t me though- it was my behavior. I had allowed the friendship to carry on that way. I had allowed myself to be controlled. Therefore, when I spoke up, the prior agreement no longer worked. Their behavior and their outlooks were there from the beginning- whether wrong or not. I chose to agree. I chose to engage. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had no boundaries all along. I was operating out of wanting to be accepted and loved. This lack of boundaries showed up in all of my relationships. I had it all backwards though. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We must have boundaries in order to have healthy relationships. Otherwise, it becomes an uneven exchange of energy and power. And that’s not healthy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In my upcoming class, I'm going to be sharing the tool that I used in order to shed my self-judgments and to create healthy boundaries. I could finally allow myself to have a say in relationship. No more living up to expectations. Sign up now at IvianaBynum.com/buildinfluence. The link is also in my bio. 👆🏽
Listen out for the kind, warm and loving people. Stay close to them ☺️
no picture of brunch bc there is none. trying to do #intermittentfasting
today but idk if I can actually manage to stick to it. also I was home alone so it was easy as nobody questioned me or anything. I fell asleep really late so I slept in and just stretched for an hour before I left for therapy where I'm headed now. I almost forgot and getting out of bed wasn't easy either but now I feel energized and it's nice leaving the house and not feeling stuffed or sick. still it's as if sth is missing bc I changed up my #routine
and I planned to change it up even more eating wise for the rest of the day which seems a bit scary. but for now I got lots of distractions to keep me busy
Wise words from @mattzhaig.

Shawn Mendes The Album 👍
從There’s nothing holding me back之後等待了一段時間 Shawn帶著主打歌In My blood回歸了 那旋律和他的嘶吼聲 讓我一聽就上癮 超喜歡這次的風格！他說這是最貼近他的一首歌 當沒有靈感的時候 心境就如同歌詞裡說的一樣 那種焦慮與無助 在現代生活的人們也能常常感受到 In my blood公開的時候 我那陣子好像都很忙很累 這首歌也道盡我所有煩悶的心情 完全貼近我心 In my blood成為了每天必聽的歌 而Shawn在唱live版時 把歌曲做更多變化 再加上他迷死人的笑容 怎能不愛他馬上變成Mendes Armies ❤️
這張專輯的其他歌曲都很棒 Lost in Japan非常輕快 Nervous歌詞好可愛 Youth的旋律很琅琅上口 我也很喜歡Falling in love 還有一些歌還沒聽 仍在考慮要不要買專輯呢⋯好心動啊

Eeeeep we will be leaving in about an hour to go to the airport, which is only 5 mins away by car yay. Decided to wear this dress as it is really soft, baggy and most importantly #comfortable
. Going to be spending the day #travelling
so comfort is very important! Finally got to sleep around 4am this morning, having a lot of trouble with #nausea
lately so going to mention that to the doc when I get back. I just feel incredibly sick all the time with waves of really intense nausea. Blurgh. Looking forward to this week away with mum in crete. My grandad gave us both some spending money. He is so generous bless him. I think I might take a trip to the spa and treat myself to a facial or something. Plus I will probably pick up a few gifts if anything catches my eye.
Sort of dreading the journey as I am already in quite a lot of pain today, luckily the hotel we are going to is only 20 mins from the airport.
Downloaded the latest episode of Yes & Body Politics the other day and have residted listening to it so I can enjoy it on the flight. Woo. @grrshubz @curvykimchi

A new interpretation of an old drawing from when I was at my lowest but with a happy and hopeful ending. Mental health should be something we talk about and aren’t afraid to let people in. If something is bothering you let it out. Keeping it in your head will only just hurt you further. If you don’t have anyone you feel comfortable with remember I’m here for you 💕
after almost missing my flight due to a last minute gate change, and throwing up during take off, I finally made it to Adelaide in one piece. 🤦🏼♀️
NB: I am not a good flyer at the best of times, let alone when things don’t go to plan.
It was a top day to be flying, apart from the other ✈️ #whataview
Sometimes I feel the need to compensate.
I can't engage, I can't contribute and conversate.
I'd like to say more.
It's as if all my words are locked away in a drawer.
Brutish and smug.
Try not to over think and shrug.
If I could convey, who knows who I could be.
That is why I need this, to show another me.
Dark greenery painted with water.
Do I believe that not far from here thousands endured Slaughter?
Running creeks trickle beside our feet.
Anxious for what might lay ahead, what in the hell we may meet.
Not afraid, I am no child.
I glance to my right, Sadie stared and she smiled.
Her desperation for acceptance drips off of her.
I hate how she is so apparent, yet my chest began to stir.
But I envy how she is apparent.
It's a little brave to be so transparent.
Control, focus on the goal.
I look ahead we see a gate with an unusual keyhole.
Stretched up to the sky.
The gate ran three metres high.
"Simon help me lift the girls" as I gawk at the gate.
"I'll go first" announces Ruth as she puts her arm up straight.
Creeping vines interlock through the gates bars.
The metal glistens a hint with the reflection of the stars.
I'm coming, I can't wait.
What we discover ahead surely will be fate. - DAX ... To be continued. 📷@savannahphotographsthings

Anxiety is the most common mental health condition in Australia. On average, 1 in 4 people – one in three women and one in ﬁve men – will experience anxiety at some stage in their life. In a 12-month period, over two million Australians experience anxiety.
While each anxiety condition has its own unique features, there are some common symptoms including:
Physical: panic attacks, hot and cold flushes, racing heart, tightening of the chest, quick breathing, restlessness, or feeling tense, wound up and edgy
Psychological: excessive fear, worry, catastrophizing, or obsessive thinking
Behavioural: avoidance of situations that make you feel anxious which can impact on study, work or social life
These are just some of a number of symptoms that you might experience. They're not designed to provide a diagnosis – for that you'll need to see a Psychologist.
