We think if we punish ourselves enough, we'll change. Accepting ourselves unconditionally is difficult because we must give up the fantasy that if we punish ourselves enough with negative thoughts, we'll change. It's as if we think we can whip ourselves into shape by saying things like: • I'm weak for feeling any anxiety. • I'm abnormal because I'm quiet. • There's something wrong with me if I don't have lots of friends and an "active" social life. • I'm a loser. • I'm weird. • I'm boring.
We cling to the belief that by berating ourselves, we'll transform into "social butterflies." But as I've learned from experience, this strategy doesn't work well. In fact, the more we yell at ourselves to "buck up," "snap out of it," or "get tough," the more anxious we become. The frightened little child inside of us doesn't respond favorably to such a mean dictator. Instead, we need to find ways to accept the anxious part of our selves, to hold that part by the hand and gently say, "You're OK." #psychology#therapy#psychotherapy#carlrogers#therapist#youdeservethebest#youareenough#psychologists#beliefinyourself#selflove#bekind#selfcompassion#selfesteem#stayfocused
Many of us have been conditioned to believe that
Being vulnerable is being weak.
We “hide” behind masks, that keep us safe, in control.
We wear this armour
That protects us from being hurt,
That protects us from being seen for who we truly are
What is it that you don’t want others to see in you? Ask yourself that.
What do you fear?
Behind it all, is fear, guilt and shame.
Terrified of being truly seen,
Terrified of being judged for those aspects of ourselves we perceive as shameful
Yet, we don’t realise that our struggle to constantly hide behind a facade and strive for perfection is what makes us feel disengaged, empty, and lonely.
Let go of who you think you should be, and allow yourself to be your authentic self
What makes you vulnerable is what makes you beautiful,
It’s what allows you to form deep bonds with others and feel a sense of belonging.
Being vulnerable is not easy, it takes practice
And it’s something I am still working on myself ..
Being vulnerable taught me so many great things..
One thing I know for sure, is that it takes a lot of strength to show vulnerability 💕
Vi mennesker er noen rare vesener 💞
Vi tror vi er tankene våre, men der tar vi grundig feil. Hvor mange ganger har du ikke laget mange historier i hodet ditt når du har tolket noe feil? Du vet, på det lille nanosekundet hvor egoet og de indre sabotørene dine lynraskt er oppe og danser på bordet.
Samtidig med at de viser deg en 3D film med farger og alt det som kan skje nå. Og jammen meg biter du sannsynligvis på agnet hvis du tror at du er tankene dine. Men, det er en gang slik at egoet elsker å vise deg reprise på alt som gikk galt for to uker siden, for tre år siden og trolig fra da du gikk i andre klasse på barneskolen.
Det som gjør at du lager disse historiene på nanosekundet er at du umiddelbart har fokus på fortiden og da gjenskaper du den som en ny morgendag. Og slik fortsetter dansen.
Men du, det trenger ikke være slik 💞 Du har faktisk muligheten til å gjøre ting annerledes nå, du kan velge noe nytt! Du kan velge å stoppe opp i nuet og spørre deg selv: Er dette virkelig sant, eller kan det være at det er andre nyanser og bilder som er virkeligheten? Tenk det da, du kan velge å lage andre historier i ditt indre ved å stoppe opp, puste litt og se ting fra en annen vinkel.
Og da skaper du en helt annen morgendag ut fra nuet du er i.
Er ikke det fantastisk?
Du er ikke de gamle historiene dine som står på repetisjonsknappen, du er en vakker funklende sjel som er her for å stråle og finne tilbake til at du kun er kjærlighet. Det er det egoet ditt er livredd for at du skal gjenoppdage 😊
Ha en fantastisk dag, bildet er fra en herlig tur jeg hadde på Hurtigruta noen år tilbake 🌸

Your assignment helpers and healers is to take a mindful break in between at least 1 of your clients/helping tasks today. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sit wherever you can whether that is in your car, in your a chair, or the floor. Sit in a comfortable but alert position - this means don't get so comfy you might fall asleep. So sitting up with good posture and having "relaxed attention" is the goal. The point of mindfulness is to be aware and present. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After your client session...⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- NOTICE the BODY: what does it feel like to be in your body right now? what sensations are you feeling from the top of your head all the way to the tips of your toes? Was there something in that session/task that triggered these sensations?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
NOTICE the THOUGHT: what are you saying to yourself about that session? about that client?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
NOTICE the FEELING: what emotions came up for you during that session? just notice. do not judge. What are you feeling now that the session is done?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- BREATHE: take a deep slow breath. I suggest an inhale to the count of 4 and then an exhale to the count of 4. do this 1 more time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- BREATHE AGAIN: try two sets of boxed breathing to the count of 4. This means inhale to the count of 4, hold to the count of 4, exhale to the count of 4, and hold to the count of 4. repeat this 1 more time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- CONTINUE TO BREATHE normally at a relaxed rate. If you find your mind wandering, return to your breath and the counting if it helps. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Go through the first exercise again and NOTICE the body, thoughts, and feelings you are experiencing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What did you notice by doing this practice? Was there a change before and after the breathing? Did this have an impact on the rest of your day or how you viewed the session/task?
I’m messing around: always wanted to be blond. Truth is I just am NOT! I will respect myself and start loving myself truly. So many girls and so many humans are born and made think they desperately need to be different, doesn’t mater how, but simply different from who/what they are. That’s not love. Yes I’d look gorgeous 🤣, but I’m not on this earth to look gorgeous. I’m here to make my path towards peace and happiness. When I’m happy I don’t care how fat I am or how blond my hair is! That quote about nature: while admiring a landscape or a sunset you don’t go “it could be pinker! Or even redder, with a hint of purple there, with some light there and a shadow in that corner” we are part of that fragile nature. We are animals pretending not to be. And go on living the life someone else has wanted us to live, and then react weird and can’t cope, as we are not happy. Lots of patients I have been seeing told me they wanna die. It’s hard to hear someone pronounce it. And I sincerely cannot explain how I feel and the vortex in words and actions starting from that sentence on. But it’s normal to struggle. We are not programmed to be success. We are made remain and always will be human. Tears are not enemies. People obliging you to be something else, are. That part of your brain telling you are wrong, IS! That part of your body rebelling, that part of your brain harassing the other part, not respecting yourself and sending so many signals you are on a wrong path are the only grain of truth. Yes they are hard. But show to you you wanna change and have things differently. Why are we forced into happiness? Why are we searching for a higher state if we have just reached the previous one? Why the hell do we alway think we are wrong? Our instinct guides us. Our surviving nature struggles underneath the bullshit we all have been made hear during school university and in society. Go on swimming, Dora! This post is for you! Love whom you love, Francine! You are not a mistake, Laura! Mark you are special! Tom, This post is for you! LIVE THE LIFE WHICH MAKES YOU DREAM OF NEVER WAKING UP! Live the life you deserve! 🤗
I think a mix is perfectly fine. 💓 as long as one doesn’t override the other. Find YOUR version of comfort and challenges. 💓. I went through a period of just challenging ALL my fears; and I had a breakdown. I wasn’t happy, so sometimes, all this talk of “taking on the world” only goes so far. 🏡 I’m a person who needs her comfy home, who needs a stable routine- but my challenges are still taken on... bit by bit and that still makes me just as much of a warrior as anyone else. 💪💓 let’s not compare ourselves to others and keep beating our own drums 🥁!
'Whether the universe is a concurrence of atoms, or nature is a system, let this first be established: that I am a part of the whole that is governed by nature; next, that I stand in some intimate connection with other kindred parts.' - Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book X, § 6.
Marcus Aurelius, an emperor of Rome and by all intents the most powerful man on earth at the time, wrote his classic work 'Meditations' as a series of self-reflections on the meaning of reason, conscience, and stoic piety.
Marcus Aurelius recognized that none of us stand alone and that we are all dominated by the forces of nature, time, and our own mortality. We all share this very basic connection and no man or woman, not even the kings and queens of the world can escape this.
Although at the top, Marcus Aurelius reminded himself that we all stand together and form a system, where the behavior of each part depends on and affects the other. Even emperors know that they owe their position to those around them.
Regardless of the gifts and sorrows that fortune and nature gave you, it is impossible to escape responsibility, no matter who you are.
Assume this responsibility and be worthy of the position you wish to take in this world, whatever that may be, since your actions will be judged by those intimate to you and most importantly, your future self.
coming from an attachment based theory, I know that we learn a lot from our relationships. it paints how we see the world, how we interact with others,and how we feel about ourselves. relationships are the most challenging and yet beautiful sources of love. #therapist#orangecounty
So yes. It goes somewhere naughty, but it's for a good cause! This is an inflatable ring that goes around the urethra to stop the bladder from leaking urine! The pump (oval) goes inside the scrotum. When pressed, it takes fluid from the reservoir (balloon) and fills up the ring (orange thing) to cut off the flow of urine! It helps patients stop dribbling/leaking urine into their undies/diapers. Many of you thought it was a penile implant but I'll post a picture of that soon. There are some similarities but they are definitely different. A penile implant looks more like.....um...yeah.😅😂 Loving my sub-internship! -m
