Sim. Essa fase, apesar dos pesares, também é um aprendizado. Estou aprendendo a me conhecer. Conhecer meus gatilhos. Conhecer meus limites. Reconhecer minha força. Reconhecer que chorar não é sinônimo de fraqueza, não é motivo pra ter vergonha. Conhecer quando uma crise está vindo. Já reconheço que preciso da minha medicação. Reconheço que necessito da minha família, meu apoio, meu refúgio. Que Deus é fundamental. Que ninguém é tão independente como pensa que é, todos dependem de alguém para algo. Que ter pessoas positivas, com energia boa ao seu lado te ajudam muito a te manter positiva. Sim. Tudo isso é um aprendizado pra mim. E pode ser pra você também. ☺️ #bipolar#bipolaridade#transtornoafetivobipolar#depressão#bipolardisorder#depression#bipolar2#learning#lessons#aprendizado#issotambeméaprendizado

*mid-week reminder #Lolas reset to stay on track 💁🏻♀️💁🏼♀️💁🏽♀️💁🏾♀️💁🏿♀️
Good morning beautiful humans!🥰🌞First thing I saw on IG today was these photos on another users profile @brangaydon . He was given the tip by his therapist to make rules for himself. I think this is so amazing! This is probably one of the most hands on and productive ways to work on yourself and your inner peace. As i’ve said before when you write your thoughts down on paper they take on a whole new meaning and life. They arent just one of thousands of subconscious thoughts that you have anymore, they are now thoughts that you are actively focusing on and working on. It helps our brain feel like “okay, I have dealt with this thought, I am done with it now.” And now you no longer stress over it or have anxiety over it when it pops up in your head at 12am when you cant sleep. Get those thoughts on paper! Now making rules for yourself is amazing. I wouldnt so much call them rules as I would call them goals. Push yourself out of your comfort zone. Making lists have always worked so well for me when coping with stress and depression. “What am I feeling right now?” “Why am I feeling this?” “What can I do to fix this?” And thats where the list comes in. Rules you can make for yourself could be simple or major, every step you take towards bettering yourself is still a milestone, no matter how small the step is. Rule 1: When invited to go somewhere, actually go and be social. Rule 2: Dont stay up past 11pm stressing, sleep early and sleep well. Rule 3: Spend 30 minutes a day journaling my thoughts. Rule 4: Every time I see a mirror today, look and mention 3 things I like about myself. . . These are just examples of goals/rules you could try out. Self care is important. Give this a shot! Sending positive vibes as always!

People with mental illness often blame themselves for it to a level that they end up being disgusted with and hating themselves. It’s extremely important to not see it as a personal failure. One needs to be kind, they need to accept the fact that they deserve love.
The many types of emotional pain we attempt to hide relate to feeling, or somehow being made to feel:
Unworthy or worthless
Disapproved of, invalidated, or rejected
Not listened to or understood
Like a non-entity--or invisible
Unloved, not cared about or wanted
Insulted, disparaged, disrespected, distrusted, devalued, or discounted
Aggressed against, taken advantage of; betrayed
Inadequate, defective, incompetent, behind the curve, inferior or looked down upon, unacceptable
Slow, stupid, foolish or silly; contemptible
Dishonorable or cowardly
Embarrassed or humiliated
Weak, helpless, or defenseless
Undeserving of time, attention, or recognition
Like a failure; "loser"
Guilty, shameful--or a bad person generally

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” -Aesop
Good Morning 🌞 Today plan on doing something randomly kind. Maybe to someone you have quarreled with?
November was full of upsetting revelations and disturbingly dark thoughts, but tonight I just want to celebrate my strength and persistence and me choosing to go to battle with my anxiousness and depressing states every day instead of giving up. This week I cut down my caffeine consumption, straightened my diet, confirmed my gym membership, unfollowed 1/3 of my Instagram subscriptions, blocked accounts of people I shouldn’t be checking on, got around studying and going to bed earlier, made time to read a book, stopped actively pedaling my social life as if I am the only person who should contribute to my relationships and sat for some time alone with my mind to figure out the unhealthy relationship patterns I am developing, not just with lovers but also with friends, acquaintances and even social media followers. A lot of little, seemingly unimportant improvements, but they really did the job. I’m one proud girl today. Still insecure, still overwhelmed, still forcing a smile when I don’t feel like smiling, but, like a dear friend said, taking baby steps. Probably the most traumatic realization was facing the fact that I let people use me extensively. Not my skills, not my body, but my very heart and soul. That they take all of my light and leave me in the dark. That they happily accept my love but give back emptiness at best. That they leave me feeling like I’m not trying hard enough and I’m not enough. They just take and take and take. “We accept the love we think we deserve”. It’s really true. Somehow I ended up believing that this is all I deserve. The very same book said: “You can’t put your life ahead of everyone and think this counts as love”. I don’t know why I can’t seem to learn this. I don’t know why people use me to heal themselves. They are not bad people and don’t do it consciously. But it’s still there and it doesn’t go away. I think now I understand why I never ask for help - I know it will never be an equal exchange. But realizing this is another baby step I’m taking this week. At the end of the day I always hope that everything is worth this life journey. I have to.

Meme therapy: I told my therapist about how I really feel about someone in my life. I was journaling about this person and was about to write some of the meanest things about them but I stopped myself. I stopped myself because it was hate driven. I don’t believe in that so I told my therapist what I wanted to write. She was very surprised lol coming from someone who looks very nice, I do have my dark moments. I asked if it was okay to write so bad about this person. She said yes, that it was a part of my anger and I need to let it out somehow. She said this was a healthy way to let it out. So I wrote some of the meanest things and it made me feel better and I moved on. Working on doing this more often.
you don’t have to have a mental disorder to struggle with your mental health !!! as we know, a diagnosis is built around a set of criteria, and evaluated by a medical professional. but you know what ? health is a spectrum. so if you see a psychiatrist because you’re worried about having a mental illness, but fail to meet all the requirements for that disorder, please don’t feel bad ! please don’t think that just because you don’t have a mental illness, your mental health issues are not as valid. i don’t meet all the symptoms for some of my disorders, and that’s okay. if you just meet a few, that’s okay too. i have had friends go into a mental health evaluation expecting a diagnosis, and when they didn’t meet all the diagnostical requirements, they felt they had failed as people. like, if they had the diagnosis it would explain their issues and validate their struggles, but now it’s on them, because they’re not ill. but i have to stress, many people who see a therapist don’t have a mental illness. they have issues and problems that they need to work on, and that’s valid. if you struggle with your mood but you’re not bipolar, you’re still valid. if you have intrusive thoughts but you don’t have OCD, that’s valid. if you have experienced a trauma but it didn’t give you PTSD, that trauma is still valid. and it’s so important to look after your mental health, even if you do not suffer from a mental illness !! don’t EVER feel like you’re problems aren’t real, don’t get stuck in the mindset of “other people have it worse”, or downplaying your own issues. you deserve to feel okay, you deserve help if you need it x ( i have not been sleeping well and i’m all over the place but i really hope i am making myself understood haha ! i’ve been thinking about this a lot and how to articulate this) •
