  • When emotional fusion occurs, relationships are not as fulfilling as they could be and there can be a sense of emptiness and feelings of “I’m not enough,” or “what’s wrong with me.” Emotional fusion can also lead to feelings of detachment and even rebellion in families  as those who are hurting try to gain a sense of self.
.
.
So how do we become emotionally fused in relationships? Generally speaking, it’s from developing core beliefs that we have about ourselves, others, and the world based on our childhood experiences. .
.
.
If you grew up in a home and/or environment that interfered with our perceived ability to separate, to survive, to function independently and to perform successfully outside of others, you may have grown  up learning to be emotionally fused to others. For example, if, during your early years, caregivers were undermining your confidence, overprotective, or failed to  foster a belief that you could perform on your own outside of the family, then you may have learned to become emotionally fused individuals. .
.
.
If you grew up in an environment where you changed your opinions to please other people, where they weren’t given the freedom to think independently, where there was frequent criticism,  perhaps coupled with an appearance of perfectionism, then you may have learned to become emotionally fused individuals. .
.
.
Emotional fusion, therefore, is a bi-product of unhealthy attachment. If you were not taught appropriate independence and encouraged to be independent thinkers, you may become overly dependent as adults. If this happens, you might rely on others to reflect and mirror to you what you need to see and hear in order to maintain you sense of self.

MAN am I happy about today’s bench. Went in wanting 265lb x 3 and even with that sloppy ass 3rd rep which almost smacked me in the face, I got it. This is my first time moving it for more than 1 soooo I’ll take it. BW 163 solid with the up in calories Monday. Will continue to keep monitoring that but I personally feel much better, fuller, and stronger. —

Second video was Slingshot 275lbx5 —

#bethebestyou 
Why did you need a 180 turn around?
I had been in recovery for 19 years and was flying spiritually and emotionally. But, I began to get really conscious about my weight.  I was missing a key part of recovery. It’s not just about being mentally and emotionally well, physical health is as equally important. And if I didn’t tackle that, then it would only be a matter of time until my self esteem and confidence took a knock... and physically I was at risk of health complications. So, ‘Physically’ I needed a 180!

What has been your highlight in 180?
I started CrossFit in 2015 and alongside some other guys in recovery, we realised the difference an adapted CrossFit programme could make to people who were caught up in a cycle of drugs, alcohol, crime and prison. So my highlight has been setting up the 180 Project and seeing that cycle be broken.  The 180 project is transforming lives!

Three things that have changed since starting 180?
I’m fitter, healthy and don’t take my physical health for granted. 
What would you say to someone who needed a 180 turn around?
Give it a go! Do not underestimate the need to look after your physical health as part of a positive recovery. Not only did I lose weight and prevent the onset of Type 2 diabetes , but my mental and emotional well-being rocketed to a new level. It works!

  • ¿Que es el TDAH? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
El Trastorno del Deficit de Atención con/sin Hiperactividad es un trastorno del neurodesarrollo que se caracteriza por problemas de atención, impulsividad, problemas académicos y poca regulación emocional. Frecuentemente, también se presenta hiperactividad o una incapacidad de quedarse quietos.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
¿Cómo actuar ante esto?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Si tu actitud es negativa: Aumentarás la frustración que siente tu hijo, entrarás en un círculo vicioso que incrementara tu angustia y estrés. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Si tu actitud es positiva: Tu hijo estará más motivado, ésta es una reacción contagiosa, por lo tanto tu te sentirás menos estresada y angustiada, valoraras más lo que hace y compartirán más tiempo juntos.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Recomendaciones:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Evaluación por un especialista. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Terapia psicológica.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Orientación a la familia: padres, cuidadores y maestros sobre el TDAH. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Apoyo y adaptation a nivel escolar. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Estructura en el hogar.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Medicación para disminuir y controlar los síntomas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • Some people have to learn to stop over analyzing and use more of their emotions and sensations to make decisions. Some people may be avoiding analyzing their decisions by relying on other sense. Too much of anything can be detrimental. It all depends on which side you lean on. @junocounseling

  • "If you wouldn’t have been so stupid," words said to me, by me..⁣
___⁣
It was the middle of the night and insomnia was raging when this one sentence just came flying at me.  The voice in my head just kept on saying it and saying it and I was like WHAT IN THE FUCK IS GOING ON RIGHT NOW??? I mean this isn't supposed to happen to me anymore, right? I'm the fucking CONFIDENCE COACH, I'm the m'fcking BODY IMAGE BADASS...I should have this shit mastered! Haha no....and if anyone tells you they don't still have moments, well, thank u, next. 🖕🏼⁣
___⁣
I was giving thought to a recent situation where I just didn't listen to my intuition.  I mean not much more needs to be said.  I didn't lead with my heart, I didn't listen to myself, and because I didn't do those things, I ended up disappointed and let down.  That's when this limiting belief decides to pop out on me. *surprise!*⁣
___⁣
But really it's a good thing and I'm super grateful because I have been working very diligently on identifying all of my limiting beliefs....some are super obvious and are easy to get to, others, like this one, not so much so when this happened it was just such a tremendous a-ha moment.⁣
___⁣
My point? What you choose to do with these thoughts as they come up is completely UP TO YOU.  You can choose to wallow in them and succumb to them (and your ego) or you can choose to acknowledge them, deal with them, and boot them the fuck out.  THIS is within your control.  YOUR THOUGHTS are within your control.  Being aware of your thoughts is the first, yet often hardest step. ⁣

  • I’ve owned this shirt for two years + only wore it for the first time on saturday.
it’s kinda crazy for me to think about that, that I haven’t felt confident enough to bust this shirt out. It’s not like I hadn’t seen it or I forgot about it, I simply couldn’t picture myself in it. With a little bit of confidence, I put it on and was happy with how it looked. I’m happy I took the leap of faith☺️
I was expecting that it’d take the car ride over before I regretted wearing the shirt and wanting to change but I actually didn’t and I felt good about myself. I know this story is little but it seemed like a great feat to me❣️

You can't tell, but this pretty pineapple was close to rotting on the inside by the time I painted it and shot it; even though it was pretty in pink on the outside. •

Sometimes, what you see isn't necessarily the truth of what is going on in someone's life. •

Some people maybe head-to-toe fabulous on the outside but may be battling things on the inside. •

Be nice to others even when they aren’t overly nice to you. Showing empathy and compassion to others is good for the soul. ✨💓✨

  • Depression is one of the most common mental health problems, but it often goes unnoticed and untreated among young African-American men. They are expected to be strong in a crisis, hide their sensitivities and keep personal problems within the family. A nationwide survey found that about 30 percent of college students reported feeling “so depressed that it was difficult to function” at some time in the past year.

  • Manifestation is a beautiful thing. What you put out into the world is what you receive. Everything starts within. Today make it a good day. Smile, greet others, get dressed up... do things that make you feel good. Take time to enjoy each moment 💜✨

On my account I feel like I’ve created this picture that recovery is super easy and I never have issues. Today I wanted to explain how far this is from the truth. I still struggle constantly with food. I no longer feel the urge to restrict however I am always gravitating to healthy options and feel guilty after eating unhealthy foods. It annoys me because I know it’s important to treat yourself🤦🏼‍♀️ but my mind still tells me I shouldn’t... but, I’m SO much happier than I was a few months ago and am getting better everyday...so if you’re out there struggling, don’t worry you’re not alone❤️❤️

This past weekend, my husband and I traveled to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for our cousin’s wedding! The wedding was sweet and loving. Travel for me allows me the chance to disconnect and take a break from the day-to-day. It also allows me to reconnect to myself and discover new things. We also spent time with family! Philly is amazing! Cheers to the newlyweds. .
