  • I know you’re going through hell right now. 😞⠀
.⠀
I know you’re dreaming of a way to make it all stop. 🛑 ⠀
.⠀
I know because I was you; that butt-print in the mud next to you is mine. 👥⠀
.⠀
I’m not a big advice guy. We live in the constant crossfire of unwanted opinions and I’m not out here trying to fix you.⠀
.⠀
But like you I have a story. 📖 ⠀
Like you I know the depths of heartbreak. 💔 ⠀
And I know what it’s like on the other side of choosing to stay. 🌱⠀
.⠀
Whether life is better or worse than you ever imagined, you can wake up tomorrow and everything can be different.⠀
.⠀
A storm. ⛈ ⠀
A new opportunity. 🚪 ⠀
Loss of a loved one. 😭⠀
Meeting someone special. 😍⠀
A new job. 👔⠀
The courage to ask for help. 💪🏻 ⠀
.⠀
Everything can change in a day, my friend. Life can change so fast.⠀
.⠀
See you soon. Love, Sam.⠀

  • 📚 LECTURA RECOMENDADA 📚⁠
.⁠
✨Este libro es TAN INCREÍBLE que no sé ni por dónde empezar...⁠ A diferencia de lo que hecho con los otros libros recomendados, no quiero hacer ningún avance del contenido de este, porque de verdad QUIERO QUE OS LO LEÁIS. ⁠
.⁠
💖Sinceramente, creo que este libro debería ser lectura recomendada para todo el mundo. Es cortito, super ligero de leer y dice tantas verdades que cada página te hace reflexionar durante 10 minutos. ✏Por favor tener un lápiz a mano mientras leéis para poder apuntar todo lo que se os pase por la cabeza, veréis todo lo que despierta. ⁠
.⁠
⛈Si estáis en un momento en el que sentís que os preocupan demasiadas cosas, que no encontráis soluciones a problemas que a priori parecen no tener fin, o que estáis empezando a pensar que este mundo y esta vida son una mierda... este es vuestro libro, y este es el momento de devorarlo. ⁠
.⁠
💪Para animaros un poco más os diré que yo me lo leí en 10 días y que ya lo estoy releyendo de nuevo!🤭 Me ha abierto tanto los ojos y he aceptado tantas cosas que antes me hacían daño que quiero exprimirlo todavía más. RELATIVIZAR y ACEPTAR es taaaaan importante. Resistir solo nos produce dolor...⁠
.⁠
☑Así que el siguiente paso es añadir este libro a ese objetivo anual de "Leer un mínimo de X libros este año" que toooooooodxs tenemos pendiente.⁠

🤙¿Algunx de vosotrxs lo ha leído ya? ¿Quién se lo apunta en su lista de "pendientes"?⁠

  • Another episode is now live! 💃🏼 Tune in to hear Anne and me talk about how to survive living alone while dealing with mental illness, feeling safe in your space, decorating on a budget, cleaning tips, and more!  Anne also discusses her history with depression and anorexia, what diversity and inclusion mean to her, and how she turned her personal experiences into a career. As always, don’t hesitate to send me your thoughts! (And memes. Lots of memes.)

  • hello again. i’m sorry i get so distant from this account, it’s just hard to write about some things sometimes. but i’ll be completely honest with you, whoever is actually reading this, even if i’ve been getting better with myself, life is till extremely hard. i’m struggling a lot right now, i’ve hit what i though was rock bottom multiple times now. i’ve done things i’m not proud of, i’ve formed habits that i’m not happy about. i’m tired all the time, i’m barely eating, i’m faking happiness sometimes. it hurts a lot to do that but i’ve kinda stepped back and stopped talking to most people about my struggles because when they look you in the face and say you scare them, it’s kinda hard to open up. people have come and gone in my life and i’ve felt like my life had fallen to shreds so many times. it’s really hard, it’s so hard. it’s so hard to not acknowledge it, i’m so scared to ask for help. i’m so embarrassed to tell my friends that i’m getting worse even though i don’t feel it. i know they want to be there but i’m so scared to tell them. i just don’t know what to do or say anymore because i feel like i’m just letting everyone down. i’ve felt like i’m a burden, i’ve felt worthless, i’ve felt empty for so long. recently it’s been better but i’m holding my breathe for the wind to be knocked out of me again. i’m just so scared to lose this good feeling. -abi p.

  • Trigger Warning: Depression/suicide/mental health

Making a post in regard to my favorite kpop idol, Choi Seung-Hyun, better known as T.O.P from the Korean band, Big Bang. 
For those of you not really into kpop, I'm sure you've heard about the recent suicides in the past years of kpop stars and recently. Long story short, kpop celebrities go through so much to become famous and endure insane amounts of stress/anxiety. Rules in Korea are incredibly strict to put it lightly which causes sooo many to fall into depression and worse. 
T.O.P had a scare a couple years ago where he apparently attempted suicide but thankfully didn't succeed. He was caught smoking weed years back (i suspect to help with his mental health) and is facing criminal charges because in Korea, marijuana use is basically the equivalent of a felony or worse. 
Early this month he posted a drunk live video on Instagram showing him as nothing but skin and bones saying he's 'not okay' which literally broke my heart. 
The kpop industry really needs to incorporate better mental health regulations. I'll be devastated if he or any others pass away. 
If you can, please send a kind and encouraging message to his Instagram as I've read that he DOES read his messages ( choi_seung_hyun_tttop )

Choi Seung-Hyun, i along with the rest of your fans want you to smile once again like in the attached photos. We don't care if you stop making music permanently to focus on your mental health and living a normal non chaotic life; we want you to be happy again. Don't feel pressured to make your selfish fans happy by getting back together with Big Bang for the Coachella tour in California. Focus on you. Much love to you 💕

Please share.

  • if you’re going to try,
go
all
the
way.
otherwise, don’t even start.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
this could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs and maybe your mind.

go all the way.
it could mean not eating for 3 or 4 days.
it could mean freezing on a park bench.
it could mean jail,
it could mean derision, mockery, isolation.
isolation is the gift, all the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it.
and you’ll do it
despite rejection and the worst odds and it will be better than anything else you can imagine.

if you’re going to try,
go all the way.
there is no other feeling like that.
you will be alone with the gods and the nights will flame with fire.

do it, do it, do it.

do it.

all the way
all the way.
you will ride life straight to perfect laughter,
it’s the only good fight
there is

My son hasn’t been listening (again), behaviors and acting up. We have been trying new things while we wait to get into a therapist for him, but today we ALL cried together. 😩⠀
⠀
My daughter has been sick off and on, transitioning her to gluten free, and she’s moody af and full of attitude (just like her momma 🤷🏼‍♀️)⠀
⠀
My husband and I are frustrated at life and all the craziness that we’ve been fighting more than I’d like to admit, and it’s been hard for me to soften my heart and humble myself but I’ve been working through that with God harder than ever.🙏🏼⠀
⠀
If I’m being honest, the old me would have distanced myself from everything. Like run away and get away for a bit, not talk to anyone. Probably drink too much so I wouldn’t have to feel and regret it the next morning and feel even worse.⠀
I’d hold it all in until I exploded and no one would even know how hurt or broken I was.⠀
⠀
🌸Now through the community of women and friends that are more like family, I can lean into them and lean into bettering myself ⠀
⠀
🌸I have the ability to get out of my own head. I have all the women I could ever need to talk to and who care to Listen, I have the tools to make myself stronger instead of feel weak and defeated. I no longer feel like I’m small and broken or need to hide.⠀

  • Today has been a rollercoaster for me. From the outside, I’m sure I look perfectly normal. But no, Syrena is in her head like always. My mind is usually running way ahead of me. I dropped off Emilia at daycare, and I came home with the intention of doing homework and laundry all day. Instead, I got anxious and procrastinated. Then I took an unintended nap late in the afternoon which threw me off even more.

This day just didn’t go like I expected it to. I have a bad habit of setting expectations for myself, and then I let myself sink when things don’t go the way I want them to. I disappointed myself today, and now I’m back in a hole.

As I sit on my couch, avoiding my responsibilities, scrolling through my phone... I focus my mind on my baby girl. So pure and innocent, always laughing and smiling.

She woke up from a bad dream earlier, and I knew just how to comfort her so that she would fall back to sleep immediately. I love to be the person that gets to hold her tight and comfort her with hugs and kisses.

Tonight I’m lost in my depressed state, but I’m happy to be Emy’s mom.❤️ #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #depressionawareness

  • I felt like I was wasting my potential.
.
I was at school, my anxiety, depression, and binging had gotten to a point where I felt like I could do nothing else but eat.
.
Dragging myself to school just long enough to be at class before rushing to isolate myself again.
.
I felt drained, irritable, hopeless, and lost all the time.
.
It felt like I would never find peace. That depression would always find me and the days of relief I had from food would always be short lived.
.
There’s this thing that happens when mental illness like depression takes over where you seem to forget that it gets better or what it was like to feel happy. Your eyes become jaded by grey colored glasses and everything gets a tint of negativity added to it.
.
I was genuinely convinced I would never know happiness again.
.
To top it off, I had brain fog constantly and the anxiety, depression, and food fixation made it nearly impossible to concentrate let alone understand and take in new information.
.
I felt like I was running at 30% of my capacity, like I had to work 3x harder to understand concepts than I normally would. I felt sluggish and slow.
.
I didn't realize just how much my brain was actually being affected and that I wasn’t just tired or needing to suck it up because at the time I thought I was just being stupid.
.
I felt like I was wasting away my potential and that I would spend the rest of my life so miserable and so invested in food that I would not be able to live my life, pursue a career, and thrive.
.
On the other side of it now, my brain is working great, I love my job, and I am happy. I actually have a sense of sense now. Something I thought I had lost.
.
If you are in the thick of it, know you can make a change. Things can get better.
.
Let me know if you can relate! ♥️.

    I was genuinely convinced I would never know happiness again.
    .
    To top it off, I had brain fog constantly and the anxiety, depression, and food fixation made it nearly impossible to concentrate let alone understand and take in new information.
    .
    I felt like I was running at 30% of my capacity, like I had to work 3x harder to understand concepts than I normally would. I felt sluggish and slow.
    .
    I didn't realize just how much my brain was actually being affected and that I wasn’t just tired or needing to suck it up because at the time I thought I was just being stupid.
    .
    I felt like I was wasting away my potential and that I would spend the rest of my life so miserable and so invested in food that I would not be able to live my life, pursue a career, and thrive.
    .
    On the other side of it now, my brain is working great, I love my job, and I am happy. I actually have a sense of sense now. Something I thought I had lost.
    .
    If you are in the thick of it, know you can make a change. Things can get better.
    .
    Let me know if you can relate! ♥️.

  • Strength Under Pressure 🏋🏻‍♀️
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
𝗧𝗵𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵𝘁𝘀 & 𝗨𝗽𝗱𝗮𝘁𝗲𝘀:
Life throws curveball after curveball at me, but I'm in the mode to kick life's a**. I'm hurting, and I'm going to get through this. I'm frustrated. I feel like I get it worse than most people around me, and I'm gonna kick a** because I can't change what life throws at me (unless I choose to end my life, but I know by this point that that doesn't work for me). I've never given less of a f*ck about people-pleasing than I have for the past few weeks. For the first week, that was accompanied by a soul-crushing, desperate depression. This week, it's accompanied by determination.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm ready. I wish I didn't have to be ready for all I've had to deal with, but I am. And I don't take sh*t, because this life is mine.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Spending the last decade battling depression has not been easy; but when I started to see the glimmer of light at the end of the depression tunnel, I realized I don’t want my old self back. I don’t want the girl that drinks & smokes every night in order forget the sadness back. I don’t want the girl that wanted to be loved so bad, that she tolerated some questionable shit back. I have no clue who the hell I am today; but she’s damn better than who I was before the depression hit. The plans I have for this version of me gives me butterflies. The woman am becoming is scary; but I love her already. I’ve got a ton of work to do, & it’s going to be tough... but I am ready. 💚❤️💛 #depressionawareness

  • Gratitude is something that you can’t comprehend the power it has till you desperately need it. These past five & a half days as I found myself laying in just-comfortable-enough bed or on the fake grass lawn (where I rolled down hills & played like a kid again) , I would give my heart a hug and cry out with thanks to my #higherpower for my life & life in general 🥰💖 The mental health struggle is real but if I’ve learned nothing in these past few days, it’s that there’s beauty in people even in the darkest of times 😍✨🌟🌈💖💕💗 I’ve never been more loved on, supported, understood, or encouraged than I have these past 5.5 days 🥰❤️ And I am incredibly grateful for it 🙏⭐️🌈🌹🌺🌸🌻 . . . 🌻PS ~ this is an old pic #throwbackthursday

  • To depress means to reduce the level or strength of activity in something. 
I know Satan wants me to believe that I’m not worth it, that I have no strength to be a beacon of light for others, that there is no place for me in God’s kingdom because I’m not always able to feel His love.  I know he wants me to give up. HOWEVER, I’m here to say that if you are dealing with #depression or any form of #mentalillness, this DOES NOT mean you are worthless, and this DOES NOT mean you are weak, and this DOES NOT mean God has forgotten you, and this most definitely DOES NOT mean that God’s light can’t shine through you. 
Even though I deal with depression, God DOES NOT stop working through me! My husband has pointed it out several times for me to see (which I’m so grateful for), and I’ve noticed it for myself, as I’ve looked for it, that as I continue to BE OBEDIENT and just TRY to be more like Jesus Christ, He is able to teach through me. I open my mouth and words come out and my kids are being taught what is important. 
As my kids and I sat down to read scriptures (I hadn’t planned an #fhelesson yet) we began talking about the temple. The thought came to my mind to drive by the #temple and show the kids. As we drove, the kids noticed how you can see it from the freeway. They also noticed how bright it is compared to other things around it. When we got to the top of the mountain, we stopped in front of the temple. We talked about how the temple helps us remember Jesus Christ. It helps us remember to be like Him. Because it’s so bright, people can’t miss it. And as they look, they remember. We then talked about being a temple ourselves and that we can be as bright as the temple if we are obedient and follow Him. His light can shine through us. When others see us they can see Him. 
I deal with depression, but this DOES NOT mean I’m weak. Philippians 4:13...I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. 
p.s. flying solo is not that fun...missing my man tonight! It just isn’t the same without you here!

  • Get the freak out of your own damn way
.
We seem to make excuses as to why something doesn’t or won’t work. We completely impair ourselves and doubt all of our abilities. These are things that I, myself, have struggled with.
.
Belief in myself was something I had the hardest time with. No matter what I did, I struggled to actually think that I could do it. Because of this.. I spent a good amount of time unhappy with the life I was living.
.
I finally had enough, who wants to live this way?! I wanted to be happy with myself and my life. I stopped making excuses, and stopped telling myself that I couldn’t.
.
This wasn’t an easy thing to do.. its actually hard AF. I have days where the doubt tries to creep back in but luckily now, I have the tools and support I need to keep my mind in the right place and get the fuck out of my own damn way.
.
With this being said, my advice to you is to just stop getting in your own head. Read a personal development book or call a friend that’s always there to uplift you. Don’t have a friend/support system like that?! Reach out to me, I’d be more than happy to help you get out of that place!
.
Do whatever it is that you have to do to gain belief in your abilities. Do not let YOU stop YOU from being your best damn self🖤

  • Anxiety knows no gender. It doesn't care if you are a man, a woman, or somewhere in between. Society however, does care. For too long men have been told to, "man up", "don't cry", or "stop acting like a girl" when men express their emotions. All across television and movies are men the emotion stable ones, pushing aside their feelings because they are supposed to look "strong". It is because of these societal influences and stigmas that men don't seek help during times of anxiety or depression and are 3.5 times more likely to die from suicide. 
But men have anxiety and depression too. Men feel the need to cry and talk to someone about their emotions too. But as a Western culture, we see it as a sign of weakness. And too often men do not get the help they need because they are afraid of looking weak or effeminate and that the very thought of having emotions will make them less of a man in their friends eyes, or worse, in the eyes of a stranger. 
We need society to change, and to show men that it's ok to get help. We need American culture to portray men sitting around a table, drinking beers talking about their feelings. So much of what our culture and norms are made from begin in television and movies. But writers won't make those changes unless they see Americans beginning to display those characteristics. 
So men, take to Facebook and say you're feeling down and need to talk. Ask your male friends how they really feel, and when they say "fine", make sure they aren't just hiding their feelings because they are supposed to look manly. Everyone, no matter their gender deserves to get the mental health help they need and deserve. We need to make men feel ok to express their feelings and seek help, because the alternative of keeping it inside until they make a permanent decision is not a place we should be. 
Keep on, keeping on. .
