Emotional validation is the process of learning about, understanding and expressing acceptance of another person’s emotional experience. Emotional validation is distinguished from emotional invalidation, in which another person’s emotional experiences are rejected, ignored, or judged. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Emotional validation is widely used by many psychologists, social workers, caregivers and teachers. Some even consider it a natural component of interpersonal communication. Dr. Marsha Linehan, a leading psychologist and creator of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), uses emotional validation as a central tool for her treatment and has done significant work to promote and enhance it in the field of psychotherapy. #mentalhealthawareness #dbt
This leaf is missing a part, but that was the reason I saw it and took it inside. Is this a life metaphor?💛
To be nobody but yourself in a world that’s doing everything to make you somebody else, is to fight the hardest battle you are ever going to fight. Never stop fighting. 🖤
I got upset over a situation where someone I considered to be close to me told me I would be a negative influence on “children” because of my tattoos and piercings. — The first thing that upset me was; why are you teaching your children to be influenced by appearances and not by the kindness in someone’s soul? — The second thing that upset me is that this person knows me so well. And if you know me you know I’m really compassionate, my work can quite literally be described as “humanitarian” — how is that a bad influence?? I don’t care when strangers tell me these things. They don’t know me and I don’t need to justify myself to them. — but how do you protect yourself from those close to you??
PTSD is like a thief in the night, that comes along to steal your joy! This morning I just want to hide away from the world and stay in isolation. Yesterday you could have peeled me off the ceiling I was so filled with joy!
What’s different about today? PTSD strikes again, that’s what... #trauma #triggered #PTSD
“Never be afraid to re-plant yourself, everyone deserves the chance to blossom” 🌺🦋💗 This video is my personal views on mental health and why I feel so strongly to make mental health noticed, not enough people do not take mental health seriously.. let’s make mental health aware together❤️
Ondanks dat ze ‘vrij’ is en lekker rondsnuffelt werkt ze door.
Ik maakte een praatje met een voorbijganger, dat ging goed tot diegene Nina haar aandacht ging trekken. Dat was op zich geen probleem want Nina was vrij, ik durfde er om die reden dus ook niets van te zeggen.
Toch voelde het onveilig.
Nina ging geen moment in op de aandacht, maar liep rechtstreeks naar mij om te verwijzen.

Breakfast today was a bagel thin and two poached eggs. I love bagels so these thin versions are great as a slightly healthier version. I can never quite get poached eggs right though, always overdone.
I’m aware I could be having healthier breakfasts, but this week was always about changing my mindset and moving away from the severe unhealthy eating I’d become used to. Next week I will explore healthier alternatives and maybe make some breakfast muffins.
I’ve always been a follower of slimming world, but not sure if I’ll return to group or follow it to the letter.
Have a good day everyone.

Who would have thought the Squishie situation would bring up so many complex feelings? Maybe my friend @goldynfinch
would gave seen that coming!
Such a big lesson there. I still have to process it. Letters to Princess Celestia.
So what I see now is a chance to reflect on what I focus on. 🌟 🌟 🌟I picked two surprise squishies. When I opened them one was adorable, and the other was so disappointing it brought up all the disappointment I had with with toys not coming to Australia - and I actually went into a tail spin - not about the choosing the wrong toy - but what that symbolizes to me emotionally.
And those sad feelings are valid. But the happy feelings of the cute non-disappointing toy are also valid. So not enough time was spent focusing on what I was actually pleased with.
So the lesson isn't that I shouldn't get so upset - But that it's ok - But also to focus on what I want & not just what I didn't want.
And is there a way to do that without invalidating sad feelings? 🌟Because in past only focusing on the good was very damaging & disrespectful to the sad parts of myself. (See Disney Pixars "Inside Out") However you can still feel & respect all your sad feelings - but also feel all your happy ones too.
There is a "middle way" between "negative" focus and being invalidating towards yourself. I am yet to get that balance, so while I'm trying to focus more positivity lately - I'm penduluming between the two polarities of life - until I can get my footing in a happier reality.
I've lived so long in depression land that I'm not used to the fact people are actually being nice to me here & parts of my life ARE getting better!
Will Staria Dream ever get out of the well of despair??? Dun, dun, dun!!!!! 🌟 Stay tuned as she tries very hard to climb out of it - and in the meantime learns some valuable things on the long decades saga!!! If you are depressed my friends you are on a true hero's journey. Stay with me - we will travel together.
I write stories for children about a specific trauma which helps them cope with the aftermath, @mytigerstripesworld.
Our first book is for children who watch a parent battle cancer.
We will all, inevitably face trauma at some point in our lives. We may experience PTSD, or anxiety, we may turn to substance abuse or self-harm. We may be alright for 5 years or 14 years or 50 years, slowly wearing away and burying our fears. And then we might not be.
There will also be those who are completely fine coming out the other side. Those people are most likely to have been given resources, coping mechanisms and a safe space in which to explore their emotions. They will have been better prepared.
So let’s prepare ourselves. Let’s not treat mental health as a problem which needs solving and let’s not wrap our children up in cotton wool.
Let’s accept that one day we will all feel pain, as hard as it may be, and let’s start now to strengthen our children so that their armour is resilient and their outlook is positive.
Sickness, separation, war and abuse happen. Health and mental health will suffer if not looked after. So instead of prescribing medication, let’s get in there beforehand and make ourselves and our children strong enough and optimistic enough to battle through. So that when trauma happens we can cry without shame and laugh without guilt.
It makes the world a much more beautiful place. “Commemorate. Educate. Heal” were the words most discussed at the @remembered2018
reception last night.
The event focused on using these three words to support military veterans through PTSD after trauma.
OVERSTIMULATION || Many mental illnesses are associated with heightened sensitivity to stimuli from the environment (e.g. PTSD, anxiety disorders, bipolar disorder, etc).
But did you know that you don’t need to have a mental illness to be overstimulated? It can also happen when any or all of the senses are doing the same thing/s for long periods.
Your eyes or ears or mouth can grow tired from doing repetitive tasks for hours. So can your brain!
Being able to focus is good. But doing so for long periods without break can do it more harm than good. This can lead to burning out which can lead to decreased productivity.
The brain is the most complex organ in the body. When was the last time you treated it to a vacation? 🧠
Up yours, mental health stigma.
Up yours, people who keep their heads in the sand about mental wellbeing of others and of family members; we all know one or two.
Up yours, people who call mental health therapy “mumbo jumbo”. Up yours, people who call mothers, fathers, young and old, single or married, or any human frankly - weak. You are weak, you motherpluckers!
Up yours, who discriminate against other humans with mental illness.
Up yours, people who tell you to man/woman up.
Up yours, people who tell you to snap out of it.
Up yours mental health stigma!
Bottoms up to medical science and psychology!
Bottoms up to all our mental health therapists!
Bottoms up to mental health and mental wellbeing campaigners!
Bottoms up to wonderful people who share their mental health struggles with us, hoping to derail and eradicate mental health stigma.
Bottoms up to all the strong humans who seek help. You, you, you are the strong ones!
Bottoms up to YOU!
You are strong and you are amazing!
You can get better. Don’t hide behind alcohol or drugs. They are not you.
You can get help and there are scientists, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists or simply counselling professionals who can help you.
You owe it to yourself and you owe it to your loved ones.
You don’t have to suffer in silence.
Life can be and get better.
