My style of Coaching really encompasses your whole life. We consider everything that's going on for you and how all aspects of your life gel together (or not). . In just 3 months, you can reach goals with me that you never would have on your own, in that time frame. It's amazing how having someone on your side, and keeping you on track just helps you move forward. Also having someone to keep you accountable is a HUGE advantage. . . . #weightlosscoach #wellnesscoach #strivewellnesscoaching #strivewellness #mindsetcoach #happinesscoach #anxietyproblems #depressionhurts #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthblogger #girlboss #entrepreneuress #entrepreneurwomen #entrepreneurinthemaking #entrepreneuriallife #entrepreneurslifestyle #goalset #goalheart #goalstoachieve #goalmet #goalsanddreams #goaloriented #goalcrushing #quoteporn #quotefortoday #quoteofinstagram #quoteaboutlife

I killed my 2017 with this question and still have some leftovers. Let it go so you can receive it. Don't cling to anything. Having possessions and stuff in general is good, it's great, it makes your life better but never be attached to it. Everything comes and goes, and that is fine. Don't cling to plans also, especially short-term ones. Everything that comes fast will have break point in it. You need to grow together with you plans and dreams, and definition of growth is change. Your everyday routine, small decisions and discipline is making your future you. Every day counts. Every decision is paving the path of what's coming. Make sure you put the stable ground. 👊 . . . . . . #mentalhealthawarness #healthandwellness #mentalwellness #mind #mindset #bewell #bipolar #help #stress #mentalhealthmatters #control #mindfullness #wellness #garyvee #mentalhealthrecovery #depression #overthinking #mentalhealthday #mentalstrength #invisibleillness #mentalhealth #healthymind #anxiety #recovery #livingfree #mentalgains #tipoftheiceberg #healthylife #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthwarrior

Hello! sorry I haven’t posted in a few days, I’ve had a pretty busy weekend! it was my mum’s birthday yesterday so I tried to stay off my phone as much as possible! It was beautiful weather so we went for a lovely walk along the beach where I haven’t been in aaages and honestly having the sea breeze blowing in my face felt so needed🌊 me and my brothers also cooked a surprise dinner for mum in the evening which was a little stressful but went really well, and she really liked it ah😅 (we managed to cook lots of little bits so people could choose the bits they liked!) and we also made her a cake which we spent all Saturday baking, and I even tried a little bit for dessert!! Because what’s a birthday without cake?? it was so nice to see how pleased mum was when I joined in and asked for a piece🤪(considering most birthdays end up in me having a breakdown and shutting myself in my room🙄) I’m off school for half term this week, but I’m going to try and have a productive week n not let depression take over, but also not overwork because my body does need to recharge its battery too lol balance is key amiright😉 hope you’re all okay x x x
Yesterday was hard, today is #mentalhealthmonday and it's been full of smile and laughter and only happy and relaxing things. Got my body measured and the results were good, even amazing. I'm healthy ❤️ Then an amazing workout followed by grocery shopping and food and relaxing with Sylvi who's been following me like a shark today. Maybe she loves me after all 😂😍❤️ . . . . . #makeup #thiccandthriving #mentalhealthawareness #girlswholift #girlswithmuscle #girlswithglasses #type1diabetes #naturalbeauty #chubbyandstrong #fitspo #girlswithattitude #mentalhealth #depressionrecovery #anxietyrecovery #motivation #authenticity #warriorwoman #type1warrior #lifewithanxiety #curvyisnotacrime #loveyourself #stopbodyshaming #mybodymychoice #mentalhealthrecovery #selflove #makeyourselfhappy #womenempowerment #fitnessgirl #strongnotskinny
PEEK-A-BOO {heads up: anxiety talk} - I had an anxiety attack. The first in almost a year. I sunk to the ground, shaking, gasping for air, all at once swallowed up by my reality. It. sucked. - This was the first time this happened since taking full hemp extract (CBD+CBG+CBC oils). It totally caught me off guard. I felt betrayed by my body+brain. I began to think my CBD dosage (~800mg) wasn't enough. I told myself I was wrong to make the personal choice to say no to medication. I told myself I'd never be okay... Yes, I was naíve to think that I had taken control and 'solved' my mental health for good. But these negative thoughts were driven by fear and they're wrong. - After some *rational* thinking I realized something painfully obvious: One tool can't support me. CBD is only one tool and I need to utilize all my other tools to succeed: working out, eating clean and drinking water...all of which I had admittedly pushed aside in the days leading up. That combined with the weight of being back home and menstruating (ur welcome) created a breeding ground for anxiety. Makes so much sense bc I've been fueled by anxiety for days now. - The flip side of that coin was this morning when I couldn't find it in me to get out of bed. In my case, after all that stress, comes sadness. Everything in me yelled "no, what's the point". But I've been down that rabbit hole before, I know what's waiting for me is worse than where I'm at in my bed. What I have yet to find out is just how amazing I can be if I keep pushing forward. - I can be more than I am. But how? What can I lean on when I feel this low? My tool box. I thought I don't have to convince myself to feel okay rn or reinvent the wheel. I just have to use the tools in front of me: drink this water, do that workout, call a friend. Do it all from big to small, then check back in and go from there. - I'm very grateful to feel at peace today. I'm proud that I powering through this morning. I'm embarrassed to share this. Oh, well. I hope you're all happy today.
You know what? I’m not just plain old proud...I’m poop in the potty for the first time proud of what I’ve overcome living with Bipolar Disorder. Side note - while I can’t exactly recall, I don’t thinking pooping in the potty for the first time was easy either. While Bipolar Disorder doesn’t define me, it certainly has crafted me into the man I am today. It has forced me to make lifestyle changes that not just keep me healthy and balanced but have improved the quality of what my life was pre-diagnosis by leaps and bounds. It has taught me the importance of sharing my feelings and experiencing them in a safe, productive manner. It’s given me compassion and empathy for others. It’s made me appreciate and celebrate all of the little wins. It’s allowed me to recognize that I have emotional superpowers. So yeah, you’re damn skippy I’m proud of who I am, Bipolar Disorder and all. And all of my bipolar brothers and sisters should be too. Can’t nobody take that away from us. #bipolar #bipolarandproud #proudtobebipolar #bipolarnation #bipolarsupport #bipolarpride #bipolarproud #bipolarstrong #bipolarstrength #bipolarwarrior #bipolarviking #bipolar2 #bipolartype2 #bipolarawareness #bipolarsurvivor #bipolarblog #bipolarblogger #bipolardisorder #bipolardisorder2 #bipolardisordertype2 #bipolardisorderawareness #bipolardisorderrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsurvivor #mentalhealthrecovery
CW: suicide attempt vaguely mentioned. I’m staying in a hotel in my own city atm which is super cool. 😎. . I can’t tell you what I am up to doing just yet. But suffice to say I am so grateful for the opportunities that have come my way over the last six months. 💕. . Just over six months ago, I tried to take my life. If I could give anyone advice in that position, as unbearable as it might feel, just wait. Even if it is a day. I can’t promise things will change. But they might. No feeling is finals. ❌. .

2/8 Here's an old favourite that's about to become available as both an embroidery kit and downloadable PDF pattern for the first time. One of the biggest learning curves for me these last few years has been to stop trying to squeeze myself into other people's moulds. My day job especially has been super hard in this respect. Over the last six months my employers and I seem to have found an equilibrium but for a good two years I really struggled. If you don't know, I work two days a week in a supermarket (an income that supplements my embroidery). Gradually and then suddenly, it became an extremely unhealthy environment for me to be in. After finally addressing my long-hidden mental health issues I went from working 50 hours a week to 25 and now 15, as regaining relative mental health after so long in a bad way required a complete reset. Even with the reduced hours I was still having anxiety attacks at work every other week, and after having to take time off every few months I realised still more needed to change. After many long discussions with my management team we were able to figure out a list of tasks and areas of the store that were more manageable for me. This has definitely been a weird transition as I spend so much more time in the office than any of my colleagues. This definitely makes me stand out among the team and I'm even now referred to as 'computer Emily' to distinguish between me and the other Emily! At first I worried people thought me lazy or that I was worming my way out of working on the shopfloor with customers. It's true that I've had to 'prove my worth' of sorts when new members of the management team come in and see how differently I work to everyone else but as I'm always able to prove (not that I should have to justify my needs to anyone else), I'm more than capable of positively contributing to the team. Just because working on the shopfloor leaves me hyper-aware of my surroundings, often leading to anxiety attacks, it doesn't mean I can't do a good job. Always remember that just because you can't do things in the way most people can, doesn't mean you can't do them at all. What obstacles have you overcome with mental health?
TW: medical PTSD, fatphobia & medical trauma . . . I’ve wanted to make something about medical trauma for a while. It’s something often spoken about within mental health and disability groups. Yet whenever I see healthcare professionals come across this I see “not all healthcare professionals” or “that’s not real, no one would do that “ (ahem gaslighting?) or “I would never do that”. Medical trauma be it after a trauma and being in an ICU or mental health and being sectioned, these can be traumatic for some, not all but it can be. And yes, some people who work in healthcare are abusers. The PTSD is just as valid, people do get symptoms like flashbacks and panic attacks just the same as PTSD caused by other types of trauma. . I decided to draw a fat person because fat bodies in healthcare often receive more criticism...and probably more. I am not the best to comment on this, but follow a few fat bloggers on here are you will see people talk on this. (I don’t want to tag anyone as I know this is very sensitive and triggering). . . . {This Post is not talking about anything directly linked to my work, workplace or NHS trust and is not insinuating anything about anyone or anywhere specific. Purely drawn to support survivors, those struggling and to spread awareness}. . [image description: hand drawn illustration of a fat mid-dark toned femme with short pink bob sitting up in bed with their head in their hands. On the wall are 9 swords. And above is written “medical PTSD is real”. This is based on the rider Waite tarot card “nine of swords”. The nine of swords represents that moment in the night where you awake and are alone with your fears And your soul wakes you up to face your nightmares. It’s as if the person is caught up in darkness and loss and unable to move on, something I think represents PTSD. ] #posttraumaticstressdisorder #mentalhealthrecovery #ptsd #nineofswords #tarot #fatphobia #medicalptsd
I might be a bit late to the party here but today's helpful #resource is ERP School by @cbtschool 🙏 This video is from Kimberley Quinlan's Facebook page where she posted a live update about the ERP School course. 💪This course is 197 USD and covers a plethora of topics around exposure response prevention such as the science of it (with regard to how ERP changes the brain), uncovering your personal obsessions and compulsions, different ERP approaches (including creative ones!), gradated ERP, scripting and flooding practices, and other valuable tools. Once you buy the course, the resources have unlimited access and consist of 18 videos, worksheet PDFs and 6 bonus videos on how to apply ERP to different OCD themes (most subsets are explored in this course) - all up this equates to 5 hours worth of ERP info! 😱 ERP School is available at different times throughout the year so if you've missed your chance to grab it, keep your eyes peeled for its next release! 😘👌 #kimberleyquinlan #cbtschool #erpschool #ocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocdsupport #ocdeducation #ocdrecovery #anxiety #anxietydisorder #phobia #fear #fears #faceyourfears #panicattacks #panicdisorder #erp #exposureresponseprevention #exposure #exposuretherapy #exposures #exposurestepladder #scripting #flooding #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #menthealtheducation #mentalhealthsupport #therapy

You can share it with someone who is struggling with depression. These tips also improve the general mood. Additional tip: Stop trying to reach out to people who are not answering your calls or texts.
Social anxiety is a bastard squeezing his way into your life. He's taking your breath and makes you feel unworthy of your own existence. Every wink is on trial. Everything normal about your body becomes an abnormal malformation and you can't get the right information rammed into you brain: it is all a hideous lie. Taking a deep breath becomes a privilege if you're feeling like you're not ought to live at all. Your brain is lying to you because it has no other option. It is crying for help by using any means possible. But who are you if you aren't your brain? If your brain wants to destroy you then what do you want and what is a YOU? Someday I am going to know it. I promise. But for now I am in pain. #socialanxiety #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery #depression #psychosis #menthalhealth #selflove #beinghuman #intamood #gettingbetter #ed #journey #mybetterself #care #whoami #truestory #modernism #triggered #bodypositivity #menthalillness #recovery #sorry #treatment #selfloveclub #selfcare #loveyourself #takecare #iwillsurvive #warrior

Today, almost exactly a year after my second mental health breakdown, I completed my final session of CBT. I cannot even begin to put into words the positive impact this and my therapist have had on my life. From finally picking up the courage to see a Doctor after struggling for over ten years after my first breakdown, to finding the right medication, to counselling, Talking Therapies sessions to finally starting CBT in November. It has been an emotional 12 months. I've learnt a lot about myself, and learnt to let go of so much. I still have bad days, everyone does. But, and this is an important but, things are so much better than they were. Will I ever be totally free of my anxiety and depression. No. I don't think I will. But, for the first time in over ten years I feel more like myself again. And that is worth so much. My journey will continue on and hopefully my mental health will keep going in this positive direction. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthjourney #mentalhealthawareness #gad #generalisedanxietydisorder #panicdisorder #depression #anxiety #cbt #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #breakdownrecovery #keeponkeepingon
We've all felt blue--sadness is a completely normal emotion that fades over time. However, if you think you have symptoms of depression, it's important and totally okay to ask for help. Avoid alcohol which will worsen symptoms. If you are going through depression or feeling suicidal, know that you are not alone and reach out for support. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 provides free and confidential emotional support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24/7. Remember, no problem is too small to ask for help and with the right treatment, depression WILL get better. . . . . . #nycPEP #nyc #mentalhealth #selfhelp #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthquotes #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthday #stigmafree #endthestigma #breakthestigma #depressionsupport #itsokaynottobeokay #copingskills #highschool #college #highschoolproblems #studentlife #nationalsuicidepreventionday #suicideprevention #collegeproblems #emergencymedicine #emergencydepartment #billieeilish #recovery
It feels like lots has happened in the last few days. I'm not sure it has by any real measure. But it feels that way. I went to a workshop. My ex was there. That wasn't great. But it reminded me anxiety's best trick: the fear is usually worse than the thing itself. It was a good day in the end. I learnt a lot. Some eye-opening stuff. And I got to spend time with some friends I hadn't seen for a while. I wish I could see them more often. But such is adult life these days. We can make friends from across the globe. But keeping in touch in a whole other matter. I had a headache from about lunchtime that day. Lack of coffee or unconscious signalling? Maybe both. It made me want to go home and get to bed, I know that much. I didn't though. I went out. I didn't stay long. My girlfriend did though. She was disappointed when I left. I'd like to think I was completely non-judgemental finding she was still out when I woke up the next day. But I wasn't. I was disappointed. And I feel ashamed to admit that. Because I'd like to think I'm better than that. Clearly I'm not. I guess it just makes me worry. That things won't last. That I'll be back in that pattern of things not working out again. But I'm sure there's a lesson to learn to here first. I also made good progress with a tough client. And I had two really good prospect calls. It felt good. And yet part of still raises an eyebrow at the self-esteem boost from external validation. Is it normal? Or just indicative of the acceptable-if rule? It's probably both.
For the past few weeks I seem to have cracked this whole decent amount of sleep lark. I haven’t had insomnia for a month so fingers crossed, touch wood, throw salt over my shoulder and whatever else for luck- I won’t have it for a while because it always destroys my mental health. . The things I commonly reach for to get a restful nights sleep include an eye mask to block out any trace of light in the room, lavender ANYTHING but I especially love dotting the neom oil on my pulse points and 5mg of melatonin. Never exceed the recommended dose of melatonin though as that itself can cause insomnia. . What are your tips for a good nights sleep? . . . . #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mhblog #mhblogger #mhadvocate #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #itsokaynottobeokay #selfcare #selfcarefirst #mhbooks #mentalhealthbooks #mentalwellness #mentalwellnessadvocate #mentalhealthadvocate #mhwarrior #depressionwarrior #anxietywarrior #sleephygiene #sleepwell #insomnia

MEDICATION UPDATE 💊: Dutch: omdat het me interessant leek om te laten zien voor wat medicatie ik slik. En misschien of het helpt of niet. Mijn medicatie lijstje: • methilfenidaat, ik slik dit eigenlijk elke ochtend. Ik zat eerst aan de concerta , maar omdat de medicatie mevrouw me er wou afhalen. ( wat totaal niet handig is want zonder ben ik echt een stuiter bal en heb 0% concentratie) zijn we dus met compremi gekomen dat ik wel methilfenidaat mag gaan slikken. Dit helpt me dus om wat minder stuiterig te zijn en wat meer concentratie heb voor op school en met de dagelijkse dingen. • fleuxotine: dit is een anti-deprissiva, dit helpt me met het reguleren van me emotie en dat ik mindere emotie heb. Jammer genoeg helpt dit alleen niet genoeg daarom slik ik er nog een anti-depressiva bij. • quatupine ( of hoe je dit woord ook schrijft ) dit is , net zoals de fleuxotine, een anti- depressiva. Deze heeft dezelfde functie. Dat ik me emotie beter kan reguleren en alles. Ondanks dat ik deze ook eerst, nadat de fleuxotine had geprobeerd, alleen slikte. Hielp deze alleen toch niet genoeg. Vandaar dat ik ze nu samen slik. Hierdoor word ik meer geholpen en zijn juist de minpunten die ik had toen ik ze allebei alleen slikte weg. • melatonine: ik ben echt al vanaf jongs af aan een slechter slaper. Hierdoor heb ik een paar jaar , zelfs toen ik al melatonine geslikt heb , totaal niet slapen en inslapen en kon het zijn dat ik. Gewoon de hele nacht in bed lag maar niet sliep. Nu slaap ik eindelijk sinds een paar jaar ( ongeveer 2 a 3 jaartjes ) eindelijk beter. Soms heb ik nog wel mijn slechte nachtjes. Maar ik slaap in iedere geval weer wat. Nou dit was alles wat ik slik en ook echt nodig heb om goed te kunnen functioneren. #medication #mentalhealthrecovery #bpd #depression #mentalillness #pillen

You never know someone’s internal struggles. Always be kind 💚
Anxiety...it has never really left my life for any period of time. It ebbs and flows, stronger and weaker. It has less of an impact on my life overall than in the past, but it's there. ________ We're going to visit a friend a few hours away next weekend. It's someone we love dearly that's been having a lot of health issues. Something we can both relate to so much. ________ We try to visit her often and feel very comfortable in her home. She has moved since our last visit so maybe that's what's triggering these feelings. Like I need a reason. ________ The thoughts are random and unfounded but you know they're all there. What if I get sick? What if I have a bad flare? What if hubby starts having breathing problems? What if hubby has to go to the ER? What If I have to go to the ER? What if our friend has a seizure and/or has to be hospitalized? What if? ________ I keep telling myself it's all gonna be alright.
Your reminder for tonight is that you are allowed to feel things, you’re allowed to have bad days where you just feel bad. your feelings are real, and you are not a burden by expressing them or telling others how you feel. you deserve the support, love, and good vibes that people give you during hard times. You also deserve to move on and live the way you want to💕 . . . #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmonth #mentalhealthmatters #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #mentalwellbeing #mentalhealthrecovery #depressionawarness #selfharmawareness #yourstoryisnotover #breakthestigma #breakthesilence #stigmafighter #endthestigma #majordepression #mentalwellnessawareness #itsoknottobeok #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthwarrior #hamont
Day 1 of #theremedyforwinter is winter walks. Our “winter” walks of late have been peppered with hints of spring. Mostly snowdrops. Which I feel obliged to photograph every time I see some 😅 I always thought I was an autumn girl through and through. (well I always thought I was a Hufflepuff as well but apparently that’s changed as well but that’s a whole different thing!) But maybe there is a special place in my heart for spring 🌱🌸 Maybe I just like the “inbetween” seasons. That’s how I’ve always thought of them. There isn’t a pinnacle moment in these seasons that people look forward. People spend their time after Christmas looking forward to summer and then when that dies down they are gearing up for Christmas again. But these in between seasons are where it’s at. There is no pressure to get ready for anything. There are the subtle changes in the air. Slowly, slowly Spring feels like the world is waking up again. Whereas Autumn signals that time to take it easy and rest a little. Also it’s not bloody Baltic or flipping roasting so that’s always a little bonus 👌🏻

Living with chronic illness requires a level of strength other people don’t always understand. A level of strength you might not even always be aware of. ⁣ ⁣ You might break down, you might need to cry and spend some time grieving your health, which is completely natural and healthy. ⁣ ⁣ What you don’t realise though is that each time this happens, your strength grows even more because you always pick yourself back up again, you might not want to, but you do. ⁣ ⁣ You show strength and courage each time whether you know it or not. ⁣ ⁣ So, never underestimate yourself, because you’re stronger than you realise.
DANCE LIKE NO ONES WATCHING! There's nothing that cheers me up like dancing with my girl. When I'm having a tough day, I take those tiny little hands in mine and shake off some sadness with goggles and twirls. Sometimes when you are stuck in a deep rut you have to find the answers that will get you out of that spot quickly. You have to create your own touches of happiness, just enough to bring some strength back but not so much it will overwhelm you and make matters worse later on. . Some days will be hard, it's just how life is some times. But you can take control and find little sprinkles of happiness in every corner disguised as cosy blankets, talks with friends and your favourite movies. What's one thing that never fails to cheer you up? Image by @mama_says_blog #dancelikenooneswatching #mycolourfullife #mymentalhealth #happinessishere #mygirl #findthemagic #mentalwellness
“Ronide, you look so happy there is no way you could be battling depression”. . . This comment has been heavy on my heart so I figure I’d speak. . Pictures are pictures and what you see on social media is not how life is for me everyday. . At the end of everyday , I have to face my demons and sometimes I’m in an empty and lonely place. . Don’t get me wrong , I am genuinely a positive and loving person but I have those days. Some days are manageable and others times all I want to do is cry and hide from the world. From time to time I just don’t want to be here. . But, I am still here and I still try every single day( even if it means just breathing) . Depression has no facial expression and you can’t detect someone suffering from a mental illness by just looking at them. . . Just want you guys to keep that in mind. ❤️ #anxietyproblems #anxietysufferer #anxietysuffer #anxietysufferersunite #mentalillnessisreal #mentalillness #mentalbreakdown #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthblog #mentalhealthmatters #blog #bloggers #mentalhealthrecovery #blackgirlsblog #bloggingwhileblack #socialanxiety #socialanxietydisorder #socialanxietyprobs #socialanxietyproblems #socialanxietysucks #socialanxietyawarenss #bloggersofinstagram #depressions #depressionandanxietysuck #depressionandanxietywarrior
After a horrible week last week I'm happy to say I've been feeling surprisingly chipper on this damp and grey Monday! Proof that emotions DO pass and we CAN survive them (who knew?). This was dessert from dinner last night. If you're looking for one more reason to recover: #recoverforgu
Extreme Hunger.. In the last few days I ate a lot like really a lot, when I was with my mom and my friends to the concert I didn't felt guilty about eating sweets etc bc my mind was busy with thinking about the concert etc. When I got home I ate a lot of sweets again. The next day I slept at my friend's house and we ate a lot again. The problem with all the eating is that i don't even enjoy it like I should do. In the evening I get weird cravings for chocolate, crisps and gummy bears and then I eat. I can't stop thinking about food and it feels awful 😶 I feel like a pig and absolutely disgusting, all I want to do is stop eating and starve myself again.. my mind's telling me that everything was easier when I starved myself and I just want to have freedom around food 😭my head always tells me that I can't have an eating disorder cause I'm eating like a pig and that I develop BED if I keep eating like this.. sorry for all this negativity I just needed to vent.. - - - [Tags: #anorexia #anorexic #anorexiarecovery #ed #vegetarian #eatingdisorder #bodypositivity #vegan #fuckanorexia #eatingdisorderecovery #ednos #prorecovery #bulimia #bulimic #bingepurge #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #bingeeatingdisorder #healthy #recovery #recoveryyispossible #recoverycommunity #mentalhealthrecovery #selflove #anorexie #magersuchtrecocery #magersucht #essstörung #fuckdietculture ]

"For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness." Thanks for the reminder, Mr Ralph Waldo Emerson! Don't worry, this isn't going to be one of those 💩Pollyanna posts about happiness and pixie dust 😂 If you've been following me for a while, you'll know I'm an optimistic realist! While spreading joy is my jam, I also acknowledge that it's completely unrealistic to be 'up' all the time. Don't you get exhausted just watching people try?! 😴. Your version of a bad day will look different to mine and everyone else's. Just PLEASE don't start comparing your 'behind the scenes' to everyone's highlights reel on here! #instagramisnotreallife I hope you are all having a fab weekend 😘xx
