I push people away when I feel useless. I push people out of my life at times. What does that win me? Not much. I don't bring toxicity to my friends, so in leaving I only manage to hurt them and myself.
Chances are, if you've pushed people away, you've cause only harm... so try and make amends with the people you've lost. Do them the favor.
The reason intrusive thoughts seem like they are so real is because the part of you that is having the thoughts is blended with you. This part has taken hold of your consciousness and you are seeing, thinking, feeling and experiencing life through its eyes.
No one has ever become poor by giving
Exactly how life should be.
Giving has always been easy for me but the receiving has been a challenge

Feeling such gratitude for the simple things in life. Gratitude is a beautiful way to shift our mindset. Start with the most basic and obvious of which to be grateful... the ability to see and read this post, the ability to sit up in bed, the fact that we have some form of shelter and a place to rest our head for the evening.
Start with the simple things. And more profoundly, have gratitude for the things that you don't like about your life. I always find it serendipitous as to how God works things out, even regarding the things that I have not been happy about over the years. Trust your life 🌸
Sometimes I try to make my friends laugh via Snapchat 😬 also I can give myself a very aggressive double chin and I hate it so I just try to make jokes about it to make myself more comfortable with myself. It actually really works! My double chin snaps bring lots of laughs to my “inner circle.” Have you guys ever tried to put a positive spin on a body part you were uncomfortable with? Specifically something you cannot change? Laughter can at times be the best medicine 😂🤗🖤 #doublechin#sexy#ithinkimfunny#bodypositivity
It’s been a while since I had a panic attack but today I had one and it freaked me out. I was driving and looking ahead and started seeing the road move left to right, as if it was waving and my heart started to pound super hard and I felt extremely sweaty. I started feeling helpless and almost pulled to the side and stopped my car. I’m surprised I was able to keep driving. Anyone who makes jokes or fun of people who have panic attacks need to shut up. It’s not a funny thing. It’s not something to poke fun at. It’s a very real and serious thing. I haven’t had one since this summer so it totally caught me off guard. I’m just hoping it won’t happen again.

Some people in this modern day world pick out some extremely insignificant shit to criticize other people... After I saw Wonder woman, I overheard a few people complaining about the actresses eyelashes... Meghan Markle being criticized for holding her pregnant belly or told she is being fake or her nail polish is too dark.... Everyday, Every fucking day there is always someone being criticized, accused or judged about something..
CALM THE FUCK DOWN... All of this negativity, nastiness, accusations, assumptions and throwing judgments at other people has only caused decades of mental health conditions, hate, violence, bullying and people committing suicide...
I do believe that people do this because they are eternally envious of others or see them as a threat and they must have been hurt so badly in life to take that out on other people. Life would be much more harmonious if these people realized that no one is entitled to take their pain out on others. Do it once or twice, it is a mistake, you continue the behaviour, then you need to look within yourself to understand why hating on others makes you feel better about yourself. We all live on the same planet, we are all humans, we all have the same fate ahead of us, be humble and chill the fuck out a bit 😎✌🏻💜💜💜

It occurred to Pooh and Piglet that they hadn't heard from Eeyore for several days, so they put on their hats and coats and trotted across the Hundred Acre Wood to Eeyore's stick house. Inside the house was Eeyore. "Hello Eeyore," said Pooh. "Hello Pooh. Hello Piglet," said Eeyore, in a Glum Sounding Voice. "We just thought we'd check in on you," said Piglet, "because we hadn't heard from you, and so we wanted to know if you were okay." Eeyore was silent for a moment. "Am I okay?" he asked, eventually. "Well, I don't know, to be honest. Are any of us really okay? That's what I ask myself. All I can tell you, Pooh and Piglet, is that right now I feel really rather Sad, and Alone, and Not Much Fun To Be Around At All. Which is why I haven't bothered you. Because you wouldn't want to waste your time hanging out with someone who is Sad, and Alone, and Not Much Fun To Be Around At All, would you now." Pooh looked and Piglet, and Piglet looked at Pooh, and they both sat down, one on either side of Eeyore in his stick house.
Eeyore looked at them in surprise. "What are you doing?" "We're sitting here with you," said Pooh, "because we are your friends. And true friends don't care if someone is feeling Sad, or Alone, or Not Much Fun To Be Around At All. True friends are there for you anyway. And so here we are." "Oh," said Eeyore. "Oh." And the three of them sat there in silence, and while Pooh and Piglet said nothing at all; somehow, almost imperceptibly, Eeyore started to feel a very tiny little bit better.
Because Pooh and Piglet were There. No more; no less.
Until about 5 years ago, I really didn’t think that time went fast. Yes, time went faster than when I was a teenager, when the summer lasted for months and my biggest worry was about how to wear my hair or did he like me back... These days, I blink and a whole year has gone by, I’m 31, in a job that I don’t really like, am still overweight and still yo-yo’ing like a 10 year old in a playground, and after battling with depression for 2 years I still don’t feel any more equip to deal with my own brain. I started this page so that I would actively tell myself that there is something positive in every single day. There is, but, I’ve blinked and another 6 months have gone past and I’ve lost my way.... so my #ASmileInMyDay today is actually, acknowledging the fact that I’ve been in a dark place and I recognise that now, after having a major panic attack at work and realising that I have not been taking my medication regularly and watching my partner look into my eyes and just looking back completely blank, and after 6 months of avoiding any mirrors I’ve put a huge amount of weight back on..... it’s time to start trying to get back on track.... Any advise or ideas would be welcomed.... #mentalhealth#mentalhealthawareness#mentalhealthmatters#ASmileInMyDay#asmileinyourday#PanicAttacks#Depression#Advice#noshameinmymedicationgame
Do you have a safe place to go to in your mind? This is an exercise that can make you feel better.
I learned in therapy this special method that I can use every time I have anxiety, panic attacks or anything that makes me feel scared, sad, bad. With my imagination I created a beautiful place where NOTHING can happen to me. I added colors, aromas, magic animals and objects and feelings that make me safe, powerful, happy, wise.
While you go to that place in your mind you use The Hug butterfly Method. Tap gently right under your collar bones with your eyes closed and think/go to your safe place. This is so powerful. It’s helping me so much.
This method is used by clinicians with survivors of abuse, trauma and natural catastrophes. It was developed by Lucina Artigas with the survivors of Hurricane Pauline in México. You can read about Bilateral Stimulation Therapies, EMDR, and also check this book out Tapping In by Laurel Parnell. What do you do to feel better? Or to manage your anxiety?

Sitting alone away from everyone I know and love and work with to avoid a full blown panic attack. I know I might come off as a bitch or anti-social or problematic but the chaos of a large gathering - no matter who it is or how well I know them or how much I adore them - has begun triggering panic attacks in the past few years to the point of I almost declined this year’s holiday party. Trying to keep my breathing normal and focus on the fun in the distance rather than the overwhelming urge to cry and leave. I hate that this happens. It happened last night and I really don’t want to go through the draining experience of another one. Anyway I’m glad to be here and socially scared shitless at the same time. I don’t get it, I don’t understand it, but I have to cope with it. #socialanxiety#panicattacks#scaredshitless#seriouslywhatthefuck
A few days ago I've started to feel depressed. A lot. Yesterday I've been so bad that I had a little panic attack which kept me occupied the whole day.
But I didn't let it stop me from small exposures. So I walked the dog twice, went shopping and ended up with nothing but success. I still use a lot of time to rest but that's Okay.
Anxiety has been easy on me for the last couple of weeks and now it tries to get me with those mini panic attacks. Now I need to be stronger than ever - to show anxiety who the boss is.

Your body knows something is terribly wrong.
Your mind just doesn’t know what to do.
Your body says, “quick. I’m fainting. I can’t feel my hands. My heart feels like it’s about to explode. I can’t see anymore. It’s all turning black. It hurts. I can’t breathe.”
Your mind screams, “I can’t control it! Im loosing control! What’s going on? I can’t! I can’t... What’s happening? Help me...” but you can’t verbalize anything, because you don’t know how to. It’s all so shockingly confusing
Fighting for breathe through those uncertain tears, & trying to stabilize your shaking body, but the floor feels like it’s fallen through. Helplessness is all around. How to get out of that hole? What‘s happening?
This, my friends, is my description of a panic attack- An onset of heavy anxiety. Even just high stress can trigger it.
Panic attacks are horrible. Almost always had they been when I was alone. Up to a few months ago when one hit me like a bus, in a public setting, with people all around me. Half of the thought I was going crazy. The other half wasn’t sure what was happening. It’s a scary thing to see & a scary thing to go through. But these panic attacks are not always sudden. They can be of a buildup of stress & uneasiness too. Bottled feelings.
Many people struggle with anxiety. More than you think.
Not all have panic attacks, & others manifest in it other ways. But either way, many people struggle with anxious feelings. & why is this?
My hypothesis, for not all but many people, is that I let the things I cannot control bother me.
So, the remedy for me, is to let it go. Let God deal with things.
It’s true what he says. Every day has enough of its own worry. Why worry about tomorrow when you have today?
Let Go & Let God. **continued in comments ⬇️
I feel most free from anorexia when I have a high sense of self identity. When I know who I am. Therefore, I know the person I really am does not need anorexia. I fight everyday to become her.
I fight everyday to beat my limiting beliefs and anxiety. To beat the doubt that stops me from doing things, and the voice that says I don’t deserve or won’t be able to handle the things that go right.
I fight to stop the cycle of self punishment, and to finally face life head on. A life that makes me happy without harming my health or my family.
A life with more fulfillment and less false security. More joy and less criticism.
As scary as life may be at times, it is less scary than the amount of fear that surfaces each day when struggling with an eating disorder.
Anorexia has taken the light out of my life since I was 12, and I refuse to let it come into my adult life.
When I get out of hospital this time, I am done fearing weight gain and being obsessive and controlling with food. I’m going to listen to my body more with a good understanding of how much I need, and I’ll eat more without guilt if I want to.
I love myself and deserve to be happy whether or not I eat the cleanest most nutritional foods all day everyday.
I have waisted too much of my thinking space worried about food. I have much greater things to focus my energy on, and I am more than capable of handling whatever comes my way. I am strong, and this battle only makes a person stronger. ⠀ ⠀

Yes!! This can cause severe anxiety and panic attacks for students
this little tiny white pill.
smaller than my pinky nail. could even be a speck of dust. but it’s magic to me. it slows down my breathing. it helps me feel safe in my body and calm in my mind. it helps me be the best me I can be. it lets me show up for myself, for my family, for you.
and so I take it every day. it’s one of the first things I do.
is it the only thing that helps keep me anxiety at bay? no. I do a whole lot of things. work out. get enough sleep. eat well. journal. meditate. tap. visualize.
but i start my day with this pill. and i’m okay with that. i’m actually a lot more than okay. i’m grateful as ever.
here’s to taking care of ourselves every way we know how too and releasing any shame or judgement that might show up along the way.
this pill gives me freedom to live life more fully and for that i’m endlessly thankful.
