Trying to do a better job of listening to my body and not beating myself up when I rest. Nothing fucks you up more than what’s in your own head. This week I’ve been beyond stressed with a broken AC, broken dryer, unexpected bills, and god only knows how much in repairs. I worked out Monday but I’ve had absolutely nothing left in the tank the past two days. Mental stress zaps my performance far more than physical exhaustion. When you get to this point, remind yourself it’s ok to rest and #thistooshallpass 😓 #crossfit #lifting #mindovermatter #selfcare #restday #trusttheprocess #itsoktonotbeok #tomorrowisanotherday #onedayatatime #alltherokfit @rokfit

🔥🙏🏻❤️ I have seen a lot of women be beat down and hit hard in life over the past few years. Many of us are terrified to share our stories because of the fear of forever being viewed differently. As if our experiences define us....make us weaker, crazy, incapable, inadequate, unintelligent, unloveable, unworthy. We all know that our experiences are not who we are. We learn and grow from them. Most importantly we teach ourselves how to be resilient, and prove that we have the power to control how we react to the next chapters in life. You never know who you are impacting, inspiring, and encouraging. Those people may not be hitting the like button or commenting on your social media, but they see you...and they need you. They are likely some of your most devoted followers...so keep telling YOUR story... . Note to self and all of you queens out there for the next time your inner mean girl kicks in: *Tell her to STFU. * This too shall pass. * There is always someone out there who gives a shit about you and loves you. * There is always something worth living for. * Speak, live and love your truth. . . #always #noshame #stopthestigma #ownit #ithelps #realqueensfixeachotherscrowns #youdeservetheworld #riseup #trytrytry #nevergiveup #youarenotalone #mentalawareness #goodvibesonly #inthearena #daringgreatly #stayinthearena #yougotthis #buttisattva #yolo #worthy #itsoktonotbeok #changethevoicesinyourhead #youareloved

Don't be ashamed of your story, it will inspire others. . #Day92 - Having now passed the 3 month mark I can safely say deployment is a lot harder than I expected to be. Both kids have turned up their attitude recently and I admit I am struggling but with just a couple of weeks before hubby is home for a few days there is at least some sort of end in sight, even if he will be going back for another few months at the end of it. 🙈😭 #armylife #itsoktonotbeok . . 📷 Top @bubblesqueakstitches Skirt @bubblesqueakstitches Hair Bows @sweet_adalyn . . . #bubblesqueakstitches #sweetadalyn #thatlook #pigtails #butterflies #attitude #littlediva #armyfamily #armywife #Armywifeandmumlife #defencefamily #defencelife #stare #almosthome #missingdaddy #daddysgirl

While you can't hide from life's problems, you *can* escape them briefly. How? Books! Reading is a wonderful way to cope with anxiety; it allows the mind to get lost in someone else's story and experiences. Do you have a go-to book for when you’re feeling uneasy?

5 days away from the intensive program I’m going to be in for 4.5 months... 8 hours 4.5 days a week!! Yup hard, real work!! I’m anxious as all hell but also I’m so excited... excited to work through my traumas of physical abuse, sexual assault, loss of my best friend at 16..... just everything. Work through and release!! It won’t be easy but I’m ready, as ready as one can be. I’m excited to learn skills that will help me live a better life with my illnesses! I’m excited to redefine and find myself. No longer what everyone wants... nope....a bad ass stigma fighting, mental illness/health advocate, public speaking, inspirational woman sharing my life and my recovery!! 5 days to a bit more light at the end of the tunnel. Does this mean I’ll be fixed, normal?? What are those?? And no. It means I’m finally releasing the darkness... but now matter what program the reality is I’ll have to fight those feelings, tears and voices for the rest of my life!! There is no quick fix.... just a lot of work and trying. #mystory #myjourney #boldlybpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #recoveryprocess #bpdrecovery #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalillness #mentallyill #yegmentalhealthawareness #yegmentalhealthblogger #yournotalone #itsoktonotbeok #livingmybestlife #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #majordepressivedisorder #depressionawareness #depressionisreal #workinprogress #stigmafighter #warrior #mentalillnesswarrior #ptsd #anxiety #mdd #edmontonmentalhealth #raisingawareness #bpdawareness

It’s half way through the week & I did my first workout of the week today... Thankful for a program that is flexible & only 4 days a week. I’ve been focusing on being intentional with my time for the past couple of weeks which is why you haven’t seen as much of me on here. I’m still here working on being my best self & creating my best life! I’d love to chat with you & do this life stuff together! #empoweringwomen #itsoktonotbeok #selfloveisntselfish #homeworkouts #cleaneating #personaldevelopment #beintenional #risetogetherpodcast #risepodcast #workingmomma #nurselife

I finished my puzzle today. I had become slightly obsessed with it & was desperate to finish it but was struggling to do the last bit; the sky. It was so tricky that several times I thought about giving up & just putting it away. I thought about asking for help. In the end I finished it by myself. I didn’t give up. But if you look closely you can see it’s not perfect. It was so tricky that in the end I just put pieces in that didn’t quite fit. They look a bit awkward & out of place. It looks fine from a distance but I know it’s not. It reminds me a bit of me. Fine from a distance but far from perfect. Some pieces crammed in & about to pop out. A slightly distorted picture on close inspection. And do you know what? I’m actually fine with that. I can cope with it (& me) not being perfect. It’s ok to not be ok. #overcominganxiety #imperfections #trickypuzzle #itsoktonotbeok

Selfies aren't always happy...and that's ok because it's ok not to be ok as long as you keep on going. As long as you get up in the morning and face this world or whatever it is that's troubling you at the moment. I promise it'll make you stronger even if you don't feel it right in this moment. Build your character. Grow. Life is just one huge learning experience if you ask me. So do that. Learn. There's a certain type of beauty in fighting through a struggle 🙆🏻💯👌🏼 #SelfieGram #Selfie #Selfies #SadSelfies #AlwaysTimeForASelfie #Struggle #TheStruggleIsReal #ItsOkToNotBeOk #Learn #Grow #Life #Facts #Truth #Growth #RealLife #SpeakTruth

A subject which is close to my heart. Each of these suggestions is a good one, if you know someone who suffers with mental illness, this would be good place to start. #itsoktonotbeok #mentalhealth #health #letstalkaboutit

You guys know that mental health is an issue that’s on my heart so this year I decided that I wanted to donate some of the proceeds from my “It’s OK” tanks to mental health centres in the community of each show I play in! My manager is an absolute badass and has decided to match my donations from each show by 100% ... so freaking manager appreciation post. I am so proud to work alongside somebody like @ronkitchener I don’t have the words to describe how much I appreciate the work he’s done for me over the years and how great of a person he is 😇✨ PS We added a semi colon at the end of the sentence because its a symbol adopted by the mental health community signifying a moment where the author could’ve ended the sentence but didn’t ❤️❤️❤️ #mymanageristhebest #warpaint #mentalhealth #endthestigma #cuteassshirtstoo #itsoktonotbeok

Mummy Mantra *it's OK to admit you are exhausted * Being a new mum is hard! Yes, it is the most amazing thing in the universe but at the same time it's bloody difficult.. Not only are you exhausted from growing and carrying around a tiny human inside you for 9 month but your body has just gone through one of the most physically demanding periods any human will ever endure.  Not only physically demanding but the constant emotional strain of – “Am I doing this right” never leaves your mind. I wanted to post this picture as it is a reminder to me that I am not a superhero! I sometimes (Most of the time)  put that brave face on to the world that I am not tired and I am full of beans but the reality is, majority of the time I am physically and mentally exhausted. *it is OK to admit you are exhausted* Breastfeeding my hungry boy on demand takes its toll and I can’t remember what a full night’s sleep feels like…. *It’s OK to not be OK (see above) *It’s OK to be tired (see above) *It’s OK to wear the same lounge clothes for days on end with unwashed hair and no makeup (see above) *It’s OK to not be on top of the house work (see above) It’s OK to sleep when they sleep (see above) I think sharing the bad as well as the good is so important.. It's what helps keep mamas sane..there is nothing worse than thinking that you are the useless one...I remember thinking.. What am I doing wrong.. Why am I so exhausted? Every other mama looks so fresh and rested all the time... #keepingitreal #newmum #mumblog #mum #tired #exhauated #rough #breastfeeding #itsoktonotbeok #sleepwhentheysleep #mummymantra

I just got done texting Crisis Text Line (text HOME to 741741 for free 24/7 crisis support in the US), so needless to say I haven't been doing well. This whole month and a half or so has been a major struggle and my doctor has been unavailable. My PCP can't do anything either. I feel hopeless. . But I did the right thing. I asked for help. Don't ever be afraid to ask for help.💕 . . #endthestigma #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealth #bipolar #bipolar1 #suicideprevention #mentalhealthawareness #crisistextline #askforhelp #itsoktonotbeok #itsoktoneedhelp #mentalillnessisreal #mentalillness

#findyourfeelgood month is all about finding new activities that improve your emotional wellbeing and today’s activity is to discover a new uplifting podcast to follow🎧 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many out there to choose from so get searching for something inspirational/motivational/informational – whatever you feel you need to hear to feel good right now👌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Podcasts are great because you can download them and listen to them on the go, whenever and where ever you wish. I often listen to them whilst I’m running, especially for long runs. I find that they’re much better at keeping my occupied and distracted on my runs rather than music which I’ve heard before🙅 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of my all time favourites to follow is @yogagirl which always makes me feel good🙌 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You can also treat podcasts as bedtime stories if you wish. It’s so much better to fall asleep in complete darkness whilst listening to positive things❤️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Still looking for more ways to feel good ⁉️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ All this month I am giving it away completely free – it’s packed with all the hints and tips you need to help you feel AH-MAY-ZING💃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Ultimate Feel Good Guide link is in my bio😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wellbeingintherealworld #findyourfeelgood #findyourepic #motivationalquote #findyourstrong #c25k #couch25k #couchto5k #thisgirlcan #changeyourmindsetchangeyourlife #slimmingworldgoals #slimmingworldmotivation #slimmingworldsupport #weightlossjourney #weightlossuk #selflovejourney #selfcareisntselfish #healthyhappylife #wellnessjourney #nourishyourself #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #breakthestigma #itsoktonotbeok

The past year has been extremely rough for me. I have been on a terrifying rollercoaster ride treating my mental illnesses and battling suicidal thoughts. I would like to be more vocal about these issues from here on out because keeping them to myself is very unsafe. If any of you are also struggling, you are not alone and #itsoktonotbeok. I will be at the @afspnational Out of the Darkness Community Walk on 9/29. Join and/or donate if you can! Link in bio. 💜🖤💚💙 #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #life #youmatter #afsp

Today on my blog, I wrote about panic, anxiety, and the way that SAD shows up in my life. Even in August when the peaches are at their most delicious. I decided to make a list of the tools I have available to me for coping. It’s good to have this list overly accessible. I’ll tell you what’s on my list and you share yours, too. We’ll help one another out. . . Riding my stationary bike often. Painting regularly. Cooking and eating meals that do good things to my body. Watching game shows on television. Taking a shower. Wearing clothes that feel good on my body. Cooking meals that we only get to eat when it’s cold outside. Meditating. Visiting with friends and checking in. . . New things that I want to try: Getting a “happy lamp”. Taking a Vitamin D3 supplement. Keeping the house cleaner than usual. Learn about Hygge and lean more on that vibe. . . . . . #selfcompassion #youareenough #endthestigma #crybabyclub #loveismyreligion #stayweird #truthhurts #bravebabes #pantastic #givelove  #resiliance #youmatter #itsoktonotbeok #youarestrong #youareunique #fatandfree #fatpositive #comfyfat #lovetheskinyourein #fatactivism #fatandhappy #psblogger #plusblogger #rebelliousselflove #visiblyplussize

i'm already down with the post-festival blues 😔💕 although my head wasn't exactly in a good place, coming home has made it so much worse. or maybe it's just made me realize how much of my life i need to change. i carry too many people's problems as well as my own, and do nothing about it until it breaks me. although i feel at my worst in some ways, i'm also at my most motivated to do something about it. no more people-pleasing. no more self-abuse. it's ok to say 'no'. . . . . #postfestivalblues #festivalseason #festivallove #anxietywarrior #anxietysucks #anxietyrecovery #introvertproblems #selfloveclub #youcomefirst #itsoktonotbeok #nomoreexcuses #goodvibesonly #positivevibes #wildchild #bodypositivity #takebackcontrol #mentalwellness #mindbodyspirit #mindbodysoul #peoplearestrange #empowerment #thisisthelife #wanderer #takemeback #liveyourlife

I took this yesterday, and had a moment to myself as I gazed at the lovely lone flower growing in the centre. Look how dirty the water is, murky, unknown territory, and that gorgeous flower growing right through it and blooming on the surface. That's how I see my Mental Health journey- the murky water being the crappy horrible times, the days where I just wanted to sit in a dark room and quit, the times when I didn't want to surface from my pillow even though I know I have to. I try remember that the crap days are somehow showing me there's better days to come, I've to get through them to be Able to focus on my goals more clearly. A bit like a lotus flower - a beautiful, colourful flower, and quite unique. The lotus grows through the murky water, through the dirt, the crap, and when it reaches the surface, it blooms in all its glory.. Stands tall and doesn't compete with the others, it doesn't need to as its so individual.. Two mins in this peaceful area by myself was a moment of pure gratitude, anxiety and depression decided to chose me, but it's ok- I've got this.. Its defo not got me 👌 I hope I explained that well enough, I started this page, as I am so so passionate about it ( as you will see) but I'm no writer, or too good with the right words... Just perfectly imperfect 💗 #perfectlyimperfectmama #anxiety #depression #gratitude #loutusflower #lilly #unique #crapdays #gooddays #wegotthis #youareenough #weareenough #itsoktonotbeok #beyou

Today was hair wash day. I try to only wash my hair twice a week at the most to try and help it grow after some serious post natal hairloss. But today I forgot to brush my hair before I got in the shower. It’s brilliant advice that I got from @nikkie.the.mermaid and has made a huge difference. The hair in the picture is just from brushing it to get the tangles out. About 3 times that came out in shower. I sobbed. It’s absolutely awful. I’ve been loaded with the cold and hormones have been all over the place recently so my hair has been in a mum bun quite a lot. I was expecting a bit more than usual but nothing as bad as what it was. Needless to say I’ve now dried my eyes and having a cuppa to let my hair dry naturally. No straighteners for me today. #hairloss #postnatalhairloss #mumbun #brushyourhair #mylovelyandme #homemade #mummade #knitting #crafts #crochet #sewing #fromtheheart #itsoktonotbeok #anxiety #depression #sahm #instamum #mum #mums #blogger #mamameetproject #teamtomm #avon #avonrep #avonuk #dundee #scotland #bekind #canihelp

Flashback to 2001, finding out I had a rare non-smoking lung cancer that would have MOST DEFINITELY taken my life; "dropped dead" they said. Should have. But didn't. The doctors found it "by accident" during a routine test. I had Pneumonia SIX times, along with a collapsed lung, pleurisy, and bronchitis more times than I can remember. Let's just say I pretty much spent the first year of the new millenium sick in bed. On May 23rd, 2001 I had my right lung removed. No chemotherapy, no radiation.. just a HUGE scar that ran down my back and around my side to remind me that I'm lucky. Lucky to have a doctor who was like a dog with a bone looking for answers that made sense. Lucky to have a healthcare system that paid for EVERYTHING - including psychotherapy . Lucky to have a loving husband and kick-ass Dad who took over and did EV-ER-Y-THING that year to help me and our kids get through this Hell we were in.... and I mean EV-ER-Y-THING. Lucky that I woke up today (on my re-birthday) so that I can say I'm 17 years cancer free, having beaten - no KICKED ASS - the odds of less than a 10% chance of living 5 years post-surgery. Lucky that my daughter asked if she could photograph my scar for a school project because she said I was her hero and that scars only show us where we've been, NOT where we are going (THAT was a proud Mom moment for me - gotta say!) . . . 👉 FOLLOW : @livingsecondchances 👉 FOLLOW : @livingsecondchances 👉 FOLLOW : @livingsecondchances . . . #scarsarebeautiful #itsokaynottobeokay #depressionsucks #cptsd #beatdepression #mentalillnesses #mentalillness #depersonalization #abuserecovery #projectsemicolon #mentalillnessawareness #itsoktonotbeok #itsoknottobeok #anxietyawareness #itwillgetbetter #mentalhealthawareness #depressionawareness #itsokaytonotbeokay #postnataldepression #bipolarawareness #anxietysucks #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #mentalhealthstigma #panicattacks #panicdisorder #panicattack #anxious #majordepressivedisorder #depressionhelp #obsessivecompulsivedisorder . . . repost @barbarajasper via @virolapp

Im on antidepressants and and anti psychotics and yea I feel some times people will judge more or be like "your a pyhopath" and it does hurt but the truth is they help me....alot and if I didn't have them I would have a full on mental breakdown.

Because of the stigma around reproductive health, many people mask how they are really feeling, especially at work. This can be incredibly exhausting and may also lead to problems at home when bottled up emotions are finally released. Suppressing emotions can be damaging to our long term mental and physical health, and can also exacerbate the underlying condition. We need to make it easier for people to express how they are really feeling, whether it’s sad, angry, exhausted, anxious, paranoid, irritated or suicidal. This starts by creating a culture of open communication and accepting the fact that sometimes people aren’t ok. #suppression #mentalhealth #pmdd #reproductivehealth #marypoppins #invisibleillness #smashthestigma #breakthetaboo #itsoktonotbeok #communicationiskey #askforhelp #workplace #workplacewellness #manager #support #itsgoodtotalk #empathy #relationships #puttingonabraveface #organisationalculture #honestconversations #openness #wellbeing

So many view suicide as a cowards way out but you're WRONG. Imagine being so trapped within your own mind that you feel it's your only way out... . . . . Before you pass judgement on anyone, ask if they are ok, lend a non judgemental ear and just be there 💚 . . . . #mentalhealth #iamthechange #suicideprevention #mentalwellbeing #itsoktonotbeok #speakup #changementalhealth #320changesdirection

And sometimes, when you give it a name, it all makes sense. Trauma: “a very severe shock or very upsetting experience, which may cause psychological damage.” -Collins I may have devoted my life to learning and practicing the art of healing the self; however, funny enough, I never properly contextualize my own experiences. Trauma can be experienced on a multitude of levels for many different people. What may seem small to one person can be experienced as earth-shattering for another. Understanding that you’ve suffered a traumatic experience is not only the first step to acquiring closure, but the first step in validating a personal experience that otherwise seemed agonizingly out of place. Although this isn’t the only piece of the puzzle, it certainly allows me to feel some kind of normalization of the events that have led me into the place and state that I am currently. In seeing this now, to myself I’ll say: You Are Worthy, You Are Smart, and You WILL Move Past This. Some way, some how, I have always managed to learn my lessons in the most difficult ways possible, but without a little risk, there’s no chance of reward. 🌸 • • • • #selfcare #mentalhealthawareness #itsoktonotbeok #closure #trauma #validation #selflove #movingforward

Day 22 of happiness habits - bonus and last day. I have been enjoying incorporating the 6 happiness habits too much I think! I didn't even realise that yesterday was the last day of the challenge of doing them for 21 days! I've just finished the 6th habit today by doing some yin yoga in my lounge room as we are home again today with a sick child. ✅ meditation ✅ fun fifteen minutes of activity ✅ conscious act of kindness ✅ doubler - writing down details of a positive experience in last 24hrs ✅ practicing gratitude - writing down 3 things I'm grateful for ✅ social connection To say that the 6 habits have had a positive affect on my mindset and general wellbeing is an understatement! I feel more calmer and content within myself most of the time and I haven't had any of the depression or anxiety symptoms for a while. I have had a few times of being overwhelmed, but I have been able to bring myself back from this before it has escalated. I have also incorporated other changes at the same time as doing these habits: namely seeing a holistic doctor, being diagnosed and treated for pyroluria, seeing a psychotherapist/life coach and setting some goals, occasionally getting a house cleaner, and writing posts for this page. All of these changes have made a difference but I feel that the small daily 6 habits that I have been doing have been the cornerstone of the increased positive mindset I am experiencing. They have helped me to crawl out of my depression and anxiety hole. There is something about the small regular things we can do for ourselves each day. They can bring some peace for just a few minutes to make us a little calmer and more content. The secret of success can be found in our daily routine. I am proof that doing this works and @shawnachor research findings of these 6 habits increasing happiness are spot on. Thank you @shawnachor ! If you have depression and/or anxiety, are stuck in a rut, are generally unhappy or just want to increase your baseline of contentment, I can recommend giving these habits a go. I'm sure they will make some kind of difference - small or big - in your life.

Your morning reminder that you got this! The past few days have been overwhelming to say the least. I struggle so much on little sleep and Bear has been up to his middle of the night gymnastics again. Tell me he’ll sleep through one day?? I’ve really tried to manage the overwhelming feelings by taking a step back, making (another) coffee. Even jumping in the puddles with Bear with no shoes on. He looked at me like I was mad! The last time I did was during a storm in Sierra Leone. It’s really quite freeing you should try it.... Today is a new day. A fresh start and you/we can handle anything that comes at us. Good morning Mama. 🖤 x #heymama #depression #anxiety #pregnancyanxiety #pregnancydepression #postnataldepression #postnatalanxiety #birthtrauma #mentalhealth #maternalmentalhealth #baby #babyblues #Itsoktonotbeok #westyorkshire #mother #mothershealth #selfcare #selflove #love #support #mentalhealthawareness #pnd #motherhood #mummy #mumfriends #advice #recoverystory #leeds #bradford

Real talk. Sometimes I'm not ok. I blame it on being hangry. Good days, bad days but that's life. Anxiety builds and then goes away. Bad days- I come up with excuses not to hang out. I think that I'll mess up by not being cool enough or say the wrong thing. Overall feeling of inadequacy. Good days- I try to make plans with people and go out. I'm greatful for friends who build me up but I feel bad cuz most of them don't know how bad I will freak out when plans change or they make last minute plans. Slowly I let people know why I react the way I do. I've been getting better as I talk it out. Little things don't get to me as much and the ones that do make me a happier person in the end. Sorry if I've ever cancelled on you. Just how I am. I'm ok guys. And honestly, photography helps. #washington #itsoktonotbeok #selflove #coast #moody #outdoors #nikon #photography #pnw #realtalk #portraitmood

On the blog (link in the comments), I talk about this little computer data — my Abel Township from the app Zombies, Run! and how Sam Yao told me it’s OK to be not feel OK.

Basic Needs Goals complete. 👏👏 . . Brushing the teeth and getting dressed seem like unattainable goals most days but we are steadily working on those two. . . Last week, we accomplished these two goals daily for 4 days straight!! We celebrated with our therapist on Thursday and have accomplished exactly ZERO goals since then. 🙄🙄 . . Until today. We may be back to square one but that's still far better than we where we were. . Here's to Day 1. Next week we add another goal, we hope. . . . #mentalhealthawareness #itsoktonotbeok #stopstigma #endthestigma #selfcare #dissociativeidentitydisorder #traumasurvivor #depression #ptsdrecovery

Hello Welcome to my brand new blog and first post.. Maibella- Perfectly Imperfect Mama 🌸 Im new to this, so do bare with me as I begin my journey with you.. So, I am Laura, I am a wife to Mike and Mummy to my 5 year old Daughter Mabel, we live in Ilkley ,West Yorkshire and have a little teeny doggie called minnie .. I have so much i want to say, and I'm not quite sure where to start, so I figured I should just start, right!? I have set up this page as I feel so so strongly towards sharing my story of Anxiety and Depression with others , I would love to raise more awareness around mental health, and definitely smash down that stupid stigma that comes with it!! I will share my life- good and bad with you, I will always be honest and frank ,and just really hope I can inspire someone, with what I am about to do! Its crazy, as I am such a private person when it comes to social media , some would question why I would share something that is so personal ...my answer?? How will we ever stop the stigma if sufferers feel afraid to talk about their mental health? I feel at a place where it just feels right, I cant explain the feeling I have inside the pit of my stomach..almost an ache, mixed with excitement and enthusiasm , and determination to be a part of an important cause. I will be doing videos, as well as posts and daily inspiration ❤️ I just want to say Thanks for joining me, and I cant wait to connect with you all.. Laura xxxx #mentalhealthawareness #breakthestigma #itsoktonotbeok #anxiety #depression #postnataldepression #sharingmystory #youareenough #youmatter

Of all the millions of lil sperms and of all the millions of lil eggs you happened to be created and put on this Earth. I think the probabilities of your existence here being a coincidence are too astronomical to compute. You’re you and unique and you are here, so be you, here, while you can! 🖤 . . . #lelaynilifeofselflove #mentalhealth #bopo #bopowarrior #bodypositive #mentalhealthawareness #positivevibes #selfloveclub #selflove #loveyourself #wicca #selfcare #takecareofyourself #mentalgrowth #mentalillness #lovethelifeyoulive #drinkwater #dogmom #positivity #honesty #itsoktonotbeok #dontgiveup #summer #youarenotalone #introvert #colorful #bossbitch #feminist #activist

Addiction hurts. Mental illness hurts. Chronic pain hurts. Trauma hurts. Eating disorders hurt. We can only begin healing by acknowledging our pain. And it’s ok to not be ok. 🖤 Photo: @youlookokaytome

“My son had been born three days earlier. I’d spent those three days in a haze of gloriousness. The afterbirth buzz. My gaze never left my sons face, and as I watched him sleeping, tears tingled my eyes whilst I tried to get my head around this new overpowering feeling of love. I loved everything about him. The tufty bits of hair that were sticking out sporadically over his head. His smell. His tiny little fingers.... His very being. On this exact day, I remember looking at myself in the mirror. I felt different. Different to how I had felt the past few days. An overwhelming sense of sadness crippled me. A different kind of tear stung the corners of my eyes. Not the happy tears of love I had felt before. The first tear came. Then the second. And then a wild gush of emotion poured out of me. How was this happening? I was a mum. I had to be strong, but I felt so very out of control. Not just of my emotions, but of my life. I HAD NO CLUE WHAT I WAS DOING! Everyone had their opinions and their views, all meant in good faith. But he was MY baby. I should know what to do. I kept waiting for my mothers intuition to kick in at any time. But it didn’t.... at least not for a little while....” #postnatal #postpartum #postnataldepression #postpartumdepression #support #yourenotalone #talkitout #mothersintuition #honest #honestaccount #motherhood #bereal #itsoktonotbeok
