Facebook memory photo. 2018 is when I started learning to love myself again. This strawberry is part of that beginning. The hearts mean so much to my journey of self love and healing. Still learning, but I'm better than before. #selflove #selfhealing #myjourney #growth #unconditionallove #egovssoul #loveyourself #outofthedarkness #intothelight #soullove #higherself #becomewhoyouare #becomewhoyouremeanttobe #❤ #hearts
There were beads at the event that you could get that correlates to what you relate to, whether it was losing a parent, child, friend to suicide or just supporting the prevention of suicide. I’m wearing blue, teal, and green. Blue: supporting suicide prevention. Teal: knowing a friend, family member, or someone who has struggled or attempted. And green: a personal struggle or attempt. Honestly, when choosing these beads, I didn’t grab the green one at first. I am not open about personal struggles and I’m shy, even embarrassed to talk about things I go through. I also hate being a burden to anyone. Then I thought, “but wait...I’m at an event that’s trying to break the stigma of those who struggle and don’t ask for help and aren’t open about their struggles.” I was even afraid of posting this. I went back to grab the green beads. I wore them proudly today. I saw people in high school wearing the green beads as well. This spoke volume to me. Anyone can be open with their struggles! Age doesn’t matter! There is no need to be embarrassed and that’s the point of this program. I in no way feel any different or special just because I’m struggling with these things every day. No one can devalue your life! And just because you decide to open up or share your story, DOES NOT make you brag or seek attention (as many people would see this in that way). My mindset use to be much worse. I have had these thoughts of worthlessness and that the world would be a much better place without me. I’ve surround myself with family and those who truly value and love me for who I am. I have my pets, who also help me to go on because they’re like my babies. And not that I’m not special, because everyone is special in their own way. Due to their heart and character. So please don’t think that just because you’re struggling that you’re not important! Your life means so much to those around you, and your existence on this earth is so much more than you know! Perhaps you’re struggling through every second, but just know, it can get better! #Afsp #Outofthedarkness #stopsuicide #Americanfoundationforsuicideprevention #Breakthestigma #Bethevoice #youknowwhoyouare #imsogratefulformylovedones
Thank you to everyone who came to support suicide awareness and prevention today at Out of the Darkness Walk! This event was so incredibly successful, and your efforts were a part of that! Your impact today was most definitely felt and we were so lucky to have you on the Character U team! 💛🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️🤝#bethevoice #outofthedarkness
Today we walked to spread awareness at the Out of the darkness Coachella valley community walk. It's always very emotional for me. We need to break the stigma, they weren't weak, they weren't selfish. You are loved, don't be afraid to ask for help because it's ok to not be ok💖 #SpreadAwareness #OutofTheDarkness #BreakTheStigma #stopSuicide #coachellaValley #AFSP #AmericanFoundationForSuicidePrevention #beTheVoice #AKF #AlwaysKeepFighting #SPNfamily
@hometownbicycles 10am intenSati. Move into stillness. Activate your inner strength!
I'm walking in the Out of the Darkness Surf City Campus Walk on Sunday, March 24th, 2019 to save myself and hopefully save others from the countless dark nights of our souls. With every breath, with every step, with every word. Suicide stops with me. I am drawing a line in the sand. No more suicide on this family tree. Will you join me in this legendary battle against suicide? I've always been a fan of healthy challenges and bold visions. Perhaps it is the dreamer in me. Perhaps it is my magical inner child. Perhaps it is my deep knowing that we can do better. AFSP's bold goal is to reduce the suicide rate 20% by 2025. Please help me reach my goal by clicking the "Donate" button on this page. All donations are 100% tax deductible and benefit the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), funding research, education, advocacy, and support for those affected by suicide. Important note: 82.9% of AFSP's expenses are dedicated to program services and 17.1% are directed towards administrative costs. As of 2016 they had gross receipts of $33.6M which means AFSP did not even come close to being one of the top 100 largest U.S. charities BUT suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in our country. WHAT IS UP WITH THAT?! Thank you for all your support (i.e. good vibes, money, service) whether it be in person or across the miles. Love & light always, Michelle

I didn’t get to take a look at all of the photos posted of people who took their own lives. Some as young as 14 from what I saw. One quote I saw that hit me hard was “May the radiance and the beauty of his life never be defined by his death (pictured in my other post).” Just because one struggles with mental health issues or anything that makes one think of death or taking their life, doesn’t make them any less of a person or even a bad person. This just means that they carry the weight and the burden of stress, sorrow, depression, and so many other things that causes pain for too long and were/are too afraid to ask for help. #Afsp #Outofthedarkness #stopsuicide #Americanfoundationforsuicideprevention #Breakthestigma #Bethevoice #lovingallanimals #volunteering

Volunteered with my sister for her work. They asked loving all animals to set up a booth because they believe that animals truly help people who struggle with depression and other mental health issues. This event was beautiful and heartfelt. There are so many people who are afraid to speak up or are embarrassed to share their struggles. Often, this silence and not asking for any form of help leads to suicidal thoughts and even many attempts, and very sadly, so many succeeding at taking their life instead of asking for help. This organization is set on breaking the stigma and prevent and ultimately stop suicide. One of the best therapies is to talk to other people one’s struggles. #Afsp #Outofthedarkness #stopsuicide #Americanfoundationforsuicideprevention #Breakthestigma #Bethevoice #lovingallanimals #volunteering

Truth time: With my daughter being gone on her trip to Quebec. I find myself having a lot of time to reflect on my health... . . I have been struggling with chronic IBS and a torn Achilles for over a year and a half. I kind a have it under control the best I can. Of course there’s been other obstacles over the past 3 months that have made it difficult for my health. Long story short I was feeling so incredibly down lately. I had worked so hard for 4 years to lose weight and I had gained most of it back. Feeling ashamed and wanting to just cry and hide.... . . Starting over again seemed impossible. Then I realized one thing that I had been fighting against for 10 years that I had defeated and won against was to not Binge eat. I actually can not remember the last time I did. Probably at least a year. So here I am waking up with a different perspective and wanting to gain control of my health again. I am taking a different approach due to Achilles injury I can no longer work out everyday. Also with IBS leaving me often dehydrated and fatigued also means less working out... but I can control what I put into my body... . . It will not always be perfect. I am not looking to be on any diets I just want to eat like a normal person who does not have to fight binge eating and compulsive over eating. Next I hope to put back into my life to work out maybe three or four times a week versus six or seven which was too much anyway... . . This is an update on my health from my heart with full truth! 💜💕Thank you for following my journey!... . . #andreaisstrongerthanyesterday

Your light attracts him. When you become the object of affection of a narcissist, they shower you with such affection and attention that you radiate. Once the abuse begins, your world begins to darken. What once was a beautiful piece of silver slowly becomes more and more tarnished until its shine is almost unrecognizable. Don’t let him take your light, your energy, your life. You must rise and shine through the chaos. #shinethroughdarkness #shinethroughthechaos #womanrising #letyourlightshine #moonlight #lightinthedark #healyourchakras #silverpolish #moongoddess #innerstrenght #overcomedepression #overcomeabuse #selfdiscovery #reinventyourself #startoveragain #fullmoonnight #loveyourselffirst #narcissisticabuse #emotionallyexhausted #IPV #psychologytoday

Signature pose: gun show. So grateful that I was able to participate in the final Open workout today! It has been just over a month since my emergent appendectomy. I was so bummed that day in the ER! First thing I said after the doc told me I needed surgery was that I'm gonna miss my first Open! I had this (mostly) irrational fear the being out for a few weeks would lead me to slide back into being lazy and lose all my progress over the past 15 months. I had to keep saying to myself that I am not going to gain nearly 100 lbs back in a few weeks! My recovery has gone very smooth, so I was able to participate in 19.5 (thrusters and jumping pullups) with all my gym buddies. Love my Pale Horse peeps! 💙💙💙💜💜💜 #crossfit #crossfitopen #wod #surgery #recovery #gunshow #flexfriday #girlswholift #strongwomen #crossfitgirls #girlswithmuscle #girlswithtattoos #drinkbeersaveturtles #biceps #strength #grateful #outofthedarkness
College freshmen, Sydney Aiello, 19, died by suicide this weekend. She was one of the survivors from the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. She was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as dealing with survivors guilt. One of her close friends was murdered in that shooting. . . . The Out of the Darkness walk is extremely important because the walk is focused on college students. Sydney missed a lot of classes because she was scared to be in a classroom. To raise awareness that mental illness is real and that we need to break the stigma, we need to share Sydney’s and many other people’s stories. . . . If you would like to sign up for the walk or donate, the link is in the bio! . . If you are in crisis, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) or text Crisis Text by texting TALK to 741741 . . . #suicideprevention #suicidehotline #afsp #wsuhootd #mentalhealthawareness #hope #endthestigma #ptsd #ptsdawareness #breakthestigma #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #outofthedarkness #safemessagingsaveslives #bethevoice #hope
I had debated talking about this, because a part of me says "it's no one's business" ..but then that depletes the whole purpose of why I am doing what I'm doing - raising awareness. My mother had never been a depressed or anxiety ridden person, even after my dad's passing away earlier in the year of her death she held it together well. Of course she was sad, heart broken, missed him and grieved, but she was also able to be logical and know if he were still here that he'd be suffering and that that is selfish of us to want for him. When she had her thyroid removed in July, that was when it all changed - 2 weeks after. It turned her into a person I have never known, and someone she also has never known. If you don't know about the thyroid, it basically controls everything, your hormones, metabolism, hair, etc...but what comes along with all of that is mood, and when your hormones and body is not functioning properly, it can lead to serious depression and anxiety. My mom went to so many different doctors trying to get help, as well as did constant research because she, as much as anyone would be, was sick of living in a body that didn't feel like her own, a body and mind state she had never felt in 54 years. She couldn't take it anymore, even with my, my family, and her close friend's help we tried to give and felt helpless because she was a prisoner in her own body. I don't feel the anger anymore that I felt in the beginning towards her, because that is selfish of me to wish someone, especially someone I love, to have to live that way. Now, I just feel heart broken.. heart broken that I and no one else were able to get her the help she needed to the point that she felt this was her only option. Suicide is becoming a rising cause of death, but it doesn't need to be that way! There needs to be more doctors who care and there needs to be more awareness! This is why I will continue to fight, for my mom, for all others lost, for those suffering, as well as for the families who lost their loved ones in this devastating way. I love you mom, always and forever. . continued in comments...

“I’m not perfect, but I’m enough!” Mental Health, Depression, Anxiety. These things are very real and in our world today are more times than not, very hard to discuss publicly. I can not express how proud I am of Taylor and her willingness to share and shed light on a sometimes very dark area. I am beyond honored that you asked me to help capture you “coming out of the darkness!” You’re amazing. You’re an inspiration and your story deserves to be told. If you or someone you know are struggling, please don’t be afraid to reach out.
