@ it’s ok not to be ok @
Sometimes my loved affected one in the family can do things that I don’t agree with. They can go of on one and become erratic coupled with tantrums and self centred behaviour.
I have learned in my recovery that it’s ok not to be in a place where I agree with these types of behaviours. I dislike them and at times hate them for theirs actions.
All I need to do in my recovery is 👀 look after myself. I now know I have no control over them. I have learned not to mirror image them. That that only upsets me and I feel hurt and sometimes resentful. I need to be mindful and understand that that’s the way they are and I can’t control that. I can only observe and empower myself to not be caught up in anything that’s detrimental to me.
Sometimes days can be a real struggle with our issues at home but every day is anew day and I learn more and more each day that is sent.
Thank god for Learning to focus on myself X.

Why are so many women following an account which primarily supports men’s emotional health? 🤷🏻♂️ 🔹
I’m not surprised 💁🏼♀️ 🔹
In fact, I am delighted 😃 🔹
I know that these women care about the men in their lives 🥰 🔹
Men who are their partners, sons, husbands, friends, fathers and colleagues 🧔🏻👨🏽👦🏼💁🏻♂️ 🔹
I know these women want to help the men and boys they care about to have fantastic emotional health 🤗 🔹
Like many of us they are shocked about how many older boys and young men suffer silently with their thoughts and feelings 😨 🔹
Like many of us, once they learn that suicide is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 they become scared 😧 🔹
Scared that their sons wouldn’t ask for help if they were struggling with worry or anxiety. 🔹
Scared that one day they may receive the news that no mother, sister, friend or wife should ever have to hear 😖 “We are sorry, we didn’t know he was suffering, he seemed fine” are words said too often by those who lived side by side with the young man who decided living was too painful 😰 🔹
Women everywhere want to know how best to help the young men in their lives when (or IF) they ask for support 🙋🏻♂️ 🔹
Ladies, please keep watching, sharing and asking for more information.
If YOU are worried about the Young Man in YOUR life, I am here for YOU too! 💁🏼♀️ 🔹
Always happy to chat with YOU when you are worried that your son, brother or partner is struggling - just type in the comments ‘I’d like a chat please’ and I will do the rest 💜
I saw a picture in a well known Swedish lifestyle shop recently. It simply said 'shine bright'. When I saw it I knew exactly where I should put it in my house, right next to my bed so I saw it every morning when I woke up. You dont need to do anything dramatic or spectacular, moving mountains or curse cancer. Just use that strength within you and let it take you through the day. Shine bright to other or just to yourself because you have achieved a lot today. Waking up to a little simple message and goal for the day sometimes works wonders to help you start the day. Unfortunately the vast picture department seemed to be void of the picture, and shop of traipsing all the way through the other departments and stealing it off a display, I had to admit defeat. So I am posting it here this morning so hopefully you might read it and it brings you a smile this morning #shinebright#sparkle#beingmoreme#youdoyou#innerstrength#morningmotivation#yougotthis#beyouownshineshine#anxiety#mentalhealth#depression#gad#wellbeing#mindfulness
Everyday we meet a lot of people , some are to our liking and some are difficult to get along with.
Not every difficult person you meet is going to be avoidable. Here are some secrets to deal with difficult people everyday.
Anxiety, in some ways, is your mind and body trying to keep you safe. Anxiety within the right context is usually helpful (such as when it stops you from procrastinating so you can prepare for examinations or a public speech so you won't feel humiliated). However, anxiety will also try protect you in situations that are relatively harmless and can show up when we don't necessarily need it's help. It's purpose is usually to protect us (which is great) but when it shows up in the wrong context it causes us discomfort (not great). Having a good self-care routine feels like predictability and safety for the body. This will reduce your body's desire to self-protect and reduce feelings of anxiety. Anxiety will be used less as a tool for self protection as your mind and body learn new ways to self care and self protect. We need to help our body and mind achieve its goal of being safe while letting it know other tools besides anxiety are available to achieve this. #anxiety#bodytalk#lifecoach#newperspective#paradigmshift#psychologist#psychology#selfimprovement
Don't sweat the decade, focus on the moments.
In my new blog I encourage us all to stay present... With the close of the decade upon us I hear people everywhere talking about big plans, looking back over the last 10 years and wondering where they will be in the next 10. Stay in the smaller moments and stay happy.
When we obsess with the big numbers we forget they are made up by many tiny ones. It leads us to panic, anxiety and depression. Things can seem overwhelming, out of reach or insurmountable, and we all know they’re not right? So why do we forget that? It’s because we have a natural yearning for new and next, we are biologically programmed to see the new in case it spells danger, what we already know must be safe. So many people now realise the power of being here right now, in this moment. From meditation to mindfulness, from life coaches to retreats, we are all trying our best to shrug off the weight of past and future and be present.
As an artist I experience so many similarities to this whilst I am painting. Yes, I have to start off with a vision for each painting but the joy is in every individual brushstroke. If I obsessed about the end piece and didn’t focus on each and every brushstroke I’d lose my way.

Being the parents of children with special needs is the most difficult job that we have ever done.
There are days when you see triumphs with your children, and you celebrate all of their achievements, no matter how small.
There are days when you watch your child fall apart and are bombarded with physical and verbal abuse during a meltdown, whilst you are still trying to support them and help them through it.
You are and always will be their biggest supporter and advocate. We will always fight for what we believe is right for our children, and become upset when people who are meant to treat them with respect when they are not in our care fail!! We are the ones who have to pick up the pieces when institution’s fail our children. We must stand together and demand that all involved in the care of children with disabilities are educated. Our children are NOT NAUGHTY, if they cry they are NOT A BABY. Cruel words can cause extreme anxiety, and as parents we are left to pick up the pieces.
Even though we can feel exhausted at times, we will always fight for the rights of our children, and we will always be there biggest advocates.
We are the parents of children with Autism and will continue to strive for education and acceptance.#autism#adhd#anxiety#awareness#educate#acceptance#advocates
⚠️ANSIA⚠️. ✅Sapete che può essere anche positiva?
Incredibile ma è così, entro un certo grado, si rivela positiva. L'ansia è colei che ha permesso all'uomo di sopravvivere ed evolversi. Serviva infatti nelle risposte di attacco/fuga, serviva per mettere in guardia i nostri antenati per evitare attacchi di animali feroci. ➡️In pratica l'ansia ci permette di evitare pericoli. Può anche incentivare una performance sportiva per esempio. L'ansia non è sempre negativa, occorre imparare a far si che non sia eccessiva per poi diventare nostra nemica, ma al contrario, familiarizzarci e far si che sia nostra alleata. ✔️Vuoi conoscere qualche tecnica?
