  • I wrote this for (you). ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She’s in a place where darkness is threatening to close around the light she’s tried to reclaim in her life. She would give anything to convince herself that her trauma didn’t happen. This sensation of numbing confusion overcomes her that what he did to her maybe wasn’t a living nightmare, it was just a terrible dream. What he did to you was a living nightmare, not a terrible dream. Convincing yourself reality was never reality only gives him more power. He doesn’t own any of your power. He never did. Especially not now, you finally bounded yourself away from him. Do not go back. When you think of him, instantly force your thoughts to go somewhere else. You are free to dream of freedom. You are free to a dream of a future not numbed to your past. A second from now is the future. You are free now. Forgive him silently. But scream to the heavens you need Light to heal you now. Search for the Light. Be the Light. You are only Light.

  • Many humans, especially those with low body esteem, spend incredible amounts of time, mental and emotional energy fixated on 'the packaging' i.e the surface of the body. Of course it's okay to interact with the surface - fashion, hair, makeup, self-grooming esp if it's from a place of enjoying the body. However, when these things MUST be done, and there's a belief that body must meet the aesthetic ideal to feel a sense of worth, no amount of 'fixing the packaging' will improve a underlying sense of low self worth. . . Remember, worthiness is already there inside you. What it requires is looking inward and having courage to begin to unpeel those layers, challenging limiting beliefs, processing trauma and making space to consider new possibilities for your existence. It's by no means easy, or simple - we spend a lifetime evolving and healing, while at the same time being complete and whole. Who you are and where you're at right now is absolutely okay. You're welcome here. 🌱🌞 . . . #psychology #arttherapy #mentalhealth #mentalillness #feminism #bodypositivity #bopo #plussize #healthateverysize #intuitiveeating #mindfulness #dietculture #health #compassion #counselling #creativity #meditation #bodyimage #selfworth #selfcare #selflove

  • Regrann from @cultivatecalmyogabrisbane - Anxiety has many masks and being constantly busy is one of them. Filling our days and rushing around is a great distraction from the unease we feel inside. But it’s only a distraction. And ignoring our anxiety doesn’t make it go away. It just stays beneath the surface gnawing away at us and keeping us busy. There is an alternative to anxious living. It involves slowing down, breathing and being present in the body. We can teach you. Check out the Art of Relaxation #anxiety #mentalhealth #nervoussystem #cultivatecalm #mind #busy #stress #brisbaneyogi #brisbaneyoga - #regrann

  • || Ever heard of “winter depression”? More commonly known as Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD. It’s a condition that affects more people than you might imagine - 1 in 15 of us in the UK, due to our long, dark, rainy winter season. ☠️ Sufferers experience symptoms such as low mood, sleeping too much or disturbed sleep, lethargy, loss of pleasure or interest, irritability, difficulty managing daily tasks. Crucially, the symptoms are prominent from late Autumn to early Spring but then disappear in the warmer, brighter months of the year. I have always struggled in the winter for as long as I can remember - I get tired, tearful, anxious & stressed for no apparent reason. It wasn’t until a few years ago when my manager at the time (who I had been working alongside for several years) suggested that I should look into it, that I had my light bulb (box!) moment💡 Being aware of the condition has been a great help for me in managing my symptoms more effectively, however this year I have decided to purchase a light therapy box to see if that can make even more of a difference. Most evidence suggests using the box first thing in the morning is most effective, as it stimulates the brain in the same way a bright summer morning would. The next plan is to just migrate south for the winter... ✈️☀️🌍 Ps - I have put a link in my profile for more info☝🏻 #lovetobestrong #mentalhealthawareness #seasonalaffectivedisorder #winterdepression #winterblues #lightbox #lighttherapy #SADlamp #mentalhealth #mentalhealthadvocate #wellbeing #emotionalwellbeing #mentalwellbeing #wellbeingwarrior

  • The term shell shock was coined to describe a range of psychological afflictions that affected soldiers, nurses and many others working in a war zone during WW1. Shell shock has long been viewed as something that just affected men, but the women who served near the front were also subjected to psychological trauma. Initially, there were huge misunderstandings around the psychological impact of the war and this is demonstrated by the range of early treatments offered to those afflicted. We'd like to thank all the Armed Forces who served, sacrificed and changed our world what it is today.

  • Soliloquy for my stupid broken egg 🧠 Hope all your eggs are treating you well. Read on if you want to hear about a thought-provoking experience I has this weekend. . I went to see a film called Climax, it’s by one of my fave directors Gaspar Noé. Some mild spoilers ahead so don’t read on if you want to go and see the movie without preconceptions. . I knew what I was getting myself into because I’ve seen his other films (although never on a cinema screen, only a laptop.) I came pretty close to having a panic attack in the screening, because it was an extremely disturbing and upsetting film. That said, I’m glad I saw it. . Since then I’ve been thinking about film rating systems and whether more specific trigger warnings before certain screenings would be beneficial. BUT this also raises the question of art and censorship - it’s a grey area because once we start censoring where do we stop? . When violence in cinema stretches beyond what we’ve come to expect from mainstream action and horror films and moves into the abject - for example violence against children, pregnant women and extreme mental torture - I think it’s reasonable to expect to be given the tools to make informed decisions about what you want to expose yourself to. Some people will need to protect themselves from content like that. . I also think that forbidding people from seeing any distressing imagery could be a step in the wrong direction in certain instances, because it can leave us unaware or unequipped to contend with real-world horrors. . No answers here btw, I’m just sat on a train so I’m writing what I’m thinking. There aren’t many people I’d recommend this film to, but I’d like to watch it again myself. I think I’d be able to enjoy it more now that the first watch has dulled the shock-factor. If you have any thoughts or if a specific film has ever really affected you I’d be interested to hear about it? Thanks for reading if you made it this far and soz I don’t have any real answers 🤷🏻‍♀️ . #illustration #illustrator #art #comicart #mentalhealth #doodle

  • I get emotional & cry too 😥 • It’s ok to cry & allow yourself to feel your emotions. In fact it’s extremely important for self care & personal growth. Bottling your emotions causes you more harm & will eventually spill out when you least expect it. • I feel I’m having some major shifts at the moment. Some have me at a cross road. I have feelings of overwhelm, confusion, doubting myself, sadness & even happiness. • An important part of self love is accepting yourself when times get hard. That it’s important to feel pain & sadness to move forward. That there is strength in feeling your emotions. • I showed you my sadness today to let you know we all get affected by life’s challenges & that you are never alone. Life is journey about growth, which will continue to happen until we leave this earth. So, embrace it & learn from it. 💙

  • Vs. The World: I take my tray and sit near the back of the food court near the TacoTime. I watch the people walk around, some with others talking, others by themselves texting, and I watch as they go about their lives. I take a drink of my water through the straw, I eat some of my sandwich (Philly cheese), it's all good. A man walks by carrying a bag from Hot Topic, he glances at me, I politely smile and he nods; this is a moment of spark. I now look around again, I see the people but now I do not feel I am watching them, I feel their heads turning in sleight movements to gawk at my eating habits perhaps. I am overweight, I have been for nearly two decades, I have been reminded of this countless times in many ways. The two women heading towards the cinema huddle near each other whispering, the one on the left lifts her eyes to mine, they must be mocking me to themselves. The mall is quiet as they all begin to watch me, the maniacal laughter washes over me in waves, fingers pointed and teeth prominent in grins that aim to me. I am suffocating in the weight of this light that shines to me as a clown performing on a stage for an audience that I did not prepare for. I am a joke, I am alienated from the crowd as I do not fit the mold. They swarm me to come for my head, all wish me dead, and so I die just a little. I know the whispers echo for me, I know the furrowed brows answer to me, I know the chattering of teeth bite at my existence... "Are you using this chair?" I lift my head as the woman asks with just a hint of a smile, "It's all yours...!" I reply nervously. I look around to see people walking with their friends, others with their phones, and I am all alone in my head... 🍀 #instagramhub #iger #streetphotography #igaddict #street #igdaily #space #instagood #visualart #streetstyle #photography #visualsoflife #art #photographer #urbanphotography #artist #poem #mentalhealth #ig_captures #interiordesign #nice #good #urban
