Have you ever laid down under a tree just to look at the sky. Has I laid there looking at the different shades of colours, the sunshine coming though the branches made me realize that there is darkness and light in everything that lives. As I was reflecting on my pass and present drama and trauma, I’ve realized by being under that big old tree that the light shines brighter. Sometimes we need to change our way of thinking. I hope you see the same by gazing at the pic. Please give me some feedback. Hugs

Hey everyone! I’ve started a subgroup Self-Harm Journey. Everyone is welcome to join- if you’ve self-harmed in the past, are self-harming, want to learn more about what it entails or want to help others ❤️
Hey always here if you want to talk. Just hit me up!
Even though it’s 4:30 a.m., I’m wide awake. I just turned 31. I’ve spent such a long time crying over my job at McDonald’s, questioning if I would ever get a full-time job in my field! Maybe it’s time to accept the rejection emails. Maybe I’m meant to do something that will help others live happy and healthy lives...which means not getting diabetes downing quarter pounders. A job that promotes wellness will give meaning and health to my life as well. I’m going to spend my birthday updating my resume, writing cover letters, and applying for the “right” jobs! Time for a little effort, hope, and healing!
Have you ever said ´yes’ to things you really meant to say no’? Was it easier for you to avoid a confrontation? Are you the people pleaser type? Rest assure that you are not alone. I’ve been there until I learned to follow my own instinct and follow my own desires. When I learned to say ‘no’ I was judged because I was always please others. I was always bending forward to meet people’s needs, while avoiding my own needs. For me it was a long process but I achieved my goal. Some people associate the word ‘no’ has being rude. I’m a pleaser, helper, fixer, so saying ‘no’ felt impossible. It’s no surprise that we live in the fast lane....when we’re feeling overwhelmed we need to look at the unnecessary things that we can avoid doing. You might be surprised that a lot of those requests/chores are for others. When I get requests I ask myself: 1- Will it have a negative impact on someone’s health? 2- What is my benefit in saying yes? 3- Will it matter if I say no? 4- Will it matter at the end of the day? This has helped me throughout my process. I am no longer a people pleaser, I am no a ‘me pleaser’. I no longer say ‘yes’ to the things that don’t matter to me. I’ve learned to say ‘no’ because I come first. My anxiety has gone down big time. Saying ‘no’ has given me so much health wise. I have gained some self esteem because I now respect myself. Have you ever felt this way?

✨self esteem✨ is your opinion of yourself and your abilities. It can be high, low or somewhere in-between. While everyone occasionally has doubts about themselves, low self-esteem can leave you feeling insecure and unmotivated. You might be able to identify a few things that are affecting your opinion of yourself. maybe you’re being bullied, or you might be feeling lonely. or it could be a mystery. Either way, there are heaps of things you can do to improve your self-esteem. 1. *Be nice to yourself* That little voice that tells you you’re killin’ it (or not) is way more powerful than you might think. Make an effort to be kind to yourself and, if you do slip up, try to challenge any negative thoughts. A good rule of thumb is to speak to yourself in the same way that you’d speak to your mates. This can be really hard at first, but practise makes perfect. 2. *You do you* Comparing yourself to other people is a sure-fire way to start feeling crummy. Try to focus on your own goals and achievements, rather than measuring them against someone else’s. Nobody needs that kind of pressure! 3. *Get movin’* Exercise is a great way to increase motivation, practise setting goals and build confidence. Breaking a sweat also cues the body to release endorphins, the feel-good hormones. 4. *Nobody’s perfect* Always strive to be the best version of yourself, but it’s also important to accept that perfection is an unrealistic goal. 5. *Remember that everyone makes mistakes* You’ve got to make mistakes in order to learn and grow, so try not to beat yourself up if you forget to hit CTRL+S on a super-important assignment. Everyone’s been there. 6. *Focus on what you can change* It’s easy to get hung up on all the things that are out of your control, but it won’t achieve much. Instead, try to focus your energy on identifying the things that are within your control and seeing what you can do about them. 7. *Do what makes you happy* If you spend time doing the things you enjoy, you’re more likely to think positively. Try to schedule in a little you-time every day. Whether that’s time spent reading, cooking or just conking out on the couch for a bit, if it makes you happy, make time for it. 8. *Celebrate the small stuff* You got up on time this morning. You poached your eggs to perfection. Celebrating the small victories is a great way to build confidence and start feeling better about yourself. 9. *Be a pal* Being helpful and considerate to other people will certainly boost their mood, but it’ll also make you feel pretty good about yourself 10. *Surround yourself with a supportive squad* Find people who make you feel good about yourself and avoid those who tend to trigger your negative thinking.
We’re born with a voice, We often feel unheard, Here we are, Stronger than ever. They always seem, To pull us down, Drag our names, Into the darkness. We’re born with a voice, Let’s stand together, Raise our voices, For inner justice. Whoever tries to bring us down is already below us. Hugs
