Whenever my older friends tell me they’re staying in a relationship or settling for second best because they’re too old to find love, it makes me cringe!! I’ve traveled and made friends with so many strangers all over this planet. I’ve heard countless love stories of people who met in their 50s, 60s and beyond. It’s ALL about the inner healing. Are you doing the work? What are you afraid of?

... and you don’t get enough credit. So here you go. 👏🏻 Vent about your blessings. Instead of trying to ‘correct’ someone online to fit into your mindset, take that energy and point it towards peace instead of battle. In the time it takes someone to draft a nasty comment, they could’ve donated to an animal shelter. Sent a kind message. Supported a small business. Energy flows where attention goes ~ and it comes right back to ya. What do you want to attract?? Spread love to get love. ♥️
When our brains experience trauma, they aren't able to integrate sensations/feelings/thoughts in the way they can when we are safe and stable. When trauma occurs regularly, particularly when we are young, this dis-integrated way of being can become our default, leading to more and more dissociated experiences or dissociated aspects of self. . . . We tend to think healing should look like "getting rid of the dissociation," but, like most not-actually-helpful ways of coping, it has a purpose and a role in survival. In my training and in my personal therapy, I've learned to honor #dissociation, listen to what it's speaking, and grow a capacity to coax dissociated elements into conversation, both within myself and on behalf of others. . . . Gonna put a plug in for @theseattleschool (which offers a counseling master's with a trauma concentration) and @allendercenter (which offers certificates in working with #complextrauma for #mentalhealth professionals, and training for other humans who want to work competently with individuals with trauma). Both organizations have deeply informed my personal and professional growth and both are ONLINE this fall!! The Seattle school has never offered their curriculum online but this fall they will, and I'm very excited about it! It's not too late to apply for this year's cohort- and for many folks a GRE is not required for admission. (and shhhhhhh, it's a secret for now 🙃 but there's a chaaaance I might be a TA for online courses this fall! 🤞🤞🤞) . . #did #mentalhealthrecovery Oh yeah- this doodle is available as a PDF download on my website- just click through the link in my profile!
A sketch in the sketchbook. I wish I could create more right now, I feel like I’m on the journey to being able to create more again. I am waiting for an appointment to hopefully fix my insides and tomorrow I’m going to see if I can fix/help my ulcer. Mentally I am feeling okay finally, I think if it weren’t for my physical health plus how hateful/paranoid/messed up the world is right now I would probably be in a pretty happy place. But there will always be hurdles so I’m trying to push through and not wait for perfection. . BLM PRINT UPDATE: The man at Staples said there’d be paper in the label printer I bought, but there weren’t so I’m waiting on labels from amazon to ship out the BLM orders. Once they’re shipped I can finally send some $$ to the foundations. 🖤 . BOOK UPDATE: Almost finished the edits, I keep having other projects pop up, plus Covid threw a chunk of metal in my gears but it’s close to being able to send it to the printer! I’m very grateful with how patient you guys are, this stuff gives me the worst anxiety. I think next time I’ll have the book finished before taking pre-orders. But I hope you’ll all like the additions I’ve included. #art #artist #artwork #myart #sketch #sketchbook #mentalhealth #depression
Eleanor had a feeling you might need a hug today. She even brought flowers and is waiting to surprise you.
Healthy relationships entail awareness, reflection, and intention. It’s important for us to continually be mindful of what the dynamic is like, how the relationship impacts us, and how we show up.• • • #loveyourself #selfawareness #awareness #lessons #feelings #mentalhealthtips #selfesteem #mentalhealth #psychology #angry #safe #strength #selfdiscovery #selfcare #selflove #human #identity #authenticity #worthit #intentionalliving #onlinetherapy #safe #millennialtherapist #lovewins #mentalhealthmatters #relationships #힐링
i have been trying to reframe the way i look at emotional pain lately. as someone with lots of mental health issues, “brain pain” is no stranger to me. i anguish and dwell and hurt and cry a lot, and it’s exhausting to feel overwhelmed by emotions all the time. but recently i have started saying “this is just growing pain”, whenever i feel lots of hurt. the body aches when it grows taller, perhaps this pain is just like that, a bit of pain as i expand emotionally, as my feelings grow. and perhaps i will come out of the other side all nice and blossomed and healthier. i believe most pain has a purpose, that there are hidden lessons wedged in between these aching nerves. i think that belief started as a survival tactic, to not feel like i’m wasting my life dealing with physical and mental pain. it’s growing pains 🌿 • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #psynligt #nostigma #mentalhealthwarrior #recovery #schizophrenia #eatingdisorder #bulimia #anorexia #arfid #ptsd #borderline #bpd #ocd #bipolar #bipolardisorder #anxiety #depression #chronicillness #adhd #art #digitalart #artistsoninstagram #comic #crazyheadcomics
I could have fooled myself! Before you go comparing your life to somebody else’s life on this platform, may I remind you that while a photo can speak a million words, it can also hide a million at the same time. While this person may look like they have their “life together”, she woke up feeling anxious, confused, unsettled. In an effort to get herself out of that head space she smacked on some lippy, chucked in some earrings and posed for this very photo. You wouldn’t think it hey? Humans naturally experience a spectrum of emotions, this platform has us showcasing our best side aka a highlight reel. Be kind to yourself and be kind to thy neighbour, for we are all fighting our own battles, some more obviously than others. Most importantly don’t compare your journey to somebody else’s. It’s YOUR destiny after all, not theirs. 🙏🏼🙏🏿🙏🏼🙏🏾🙏🏽🙏
