🌙 Hiding from life 🌙
I'm feeling bad. And I know there's a lot of people like me... And to them I say, it's okay. It really is. Self care is extremely important so denying that you feel bad is denying progress towards happiness. Fooling yourself into thinking that you have no reasons to feel bad is the worst thing you can do for your mental stability.
And sometimes you don't even need much. A hot drink. Making yourself a good dinner. Eat outside. So yeah, make or do something good for yourself. Pat yourself on the head for me. Mwah. Love u. 😚
Ik lag vanochtend in bed en ik had totaal geen zin om iets te doen vandaag dus heb ik mezelf het bed uit gesleept en ben ik gaan rennen.. ondertussen verdwaald in het bos.. Maar het was wel een super mooie omgeving😍 tussendoor nog even oude vrouwtjes geholpen die domino tijdens het fietsen aan het spelen waren en hebben elkaar dus omgegooid op de fiets.. wat je wel niet kan meemaken in een run joh😂 ook door 100 spinnenwebben heen gerend. Wauw geweldige ochtend was dit zeg! Nu lekker voor mezelf zorgen en er een goede dag van maken💪 #hardlopen#run#runner#depressie#depressed#depression#mentalillness#stronglikeafighterarmy#stronglikeafighter#fitfam
Depression, it's the big one. Sometimes it can literally feel as though you're drowning. Underwater with your eyes open trying to see the world around you clearly, but simply unable due to the blur and fog of the condition that clouds your judgement and decision making ability. There are many different forms of depression that a person can experience and obtaining the right diagnosis is extremely important in order to regain a full recovery or to learn how to manage a more chronic illness. Many people in today's society are still unaware of the differences between what is termed as environmental depression, clinical or major depression, chronic depression, psychotic depression and so forth. A person who experiences a loss in life be that grief for the loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or loss of a relationship may experience symptoms of environmental depression due to the changes in their surroundings. This with time, medication, counselling or all of the above, can be elevated and by no means is a lesser experience than those whom end up with a diagnosis of clinical depression for instance. However a person who is a diagnosed as being clinically depressed does not have on a biological level, the ability to maintain a healthy state of mind. Experts are still debating as to whether this is due a predisposition within our genetic pool or within the developmental stages of infant to toddler. Exposure to unhealthy environments as a child can severely impact the brains development in many different ways. Ways in which will be discussed in detail soon 😊#mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#staystrong#staypositive#seekhelp#seekanswers#depression#clinicaldepression#environmentaldepression#psychoticdepression

Today... I had a counselling session and realised how harsh I am on myself and finally accepted the realisation that I have quite severe anxiety.. To the people wondering why I am saying this on here is because I AM going to prove that I can Turn This All Around! And if I can help ONE person who is sitting behind their phone that is suffering alone right now and can relate then I will be your little spark my friend..
I will prove I can make the little spark inside of me a burning fire!! 🔥🔥
I'm sorry I'm so hard on you, that I tear you apart and compare you. When I mistreat you it's not because I hate you. These are my ill-attempts at crying out to you. What we know is abuse and even though we are relearning reprogramming and healing we still sometimes go back to the familiarity of the pain. This is why I love working out with you. It's mind, body and Spirit. We feel connected. We flow. We are in harmony. We all showed up in today's workout. Bliss. Please be patient with me. I'm doing the best that I can.
I cry because I can’t tell you what it’s like to walk the streets as a woman who doesn’t feel she is at the mercy of any man who might pass by. I can’t tell you how it feels to be a sexually liberated female, or what it’s like to live a life where I am not objectified to a piece of meat, a sexual object. I can’t tell you how it feels to go through life feeling safe - not only in your day-to-day life but in all kinds of relationships and interactions. I can’t tell you about the pain that I’ve revisited one-too-many times or about the guilt that I hold for wanting to feel free. I can’t tell you about shame that I carry for being a woman who has had all of her boundaries pushed over their limits and spat in the face of. I have been silenced.
I can tell you that I have found my big voice and the most divine words to express what has been shoved back down. I will no longer be silenced.
I can tell you that the violence that I have suffered at the hands at has debilitated me in my life in more ways that one, but I am no longer a victim. I can tell you that I am a rape and sexual violence survivor, like so many other women in the world. Have you seen the hashtags around lately? Yeah, #metoo
I wonder when women will be fully free to claim their sexual innocence and when we will start to look at sexual abuse in another way? I don’t have all the answers. My heart aches. I can only promise to myself and to every other woman who has lived through the mortifying, dark moments of sexual violence, that I will dedicate my power to helping us heal. To help us awaken to our inner essence, and to know we are worthy of respect, liberation and love. To help leave the world in better shape than what we were born into.
Your pain is not shameful and our sexuality is not sinful. Walk with me on my healing journey so you can feel it for yourself. #riseofthewoman
