The environment is in us, not just outside of it. The trees are our lungs, the rivers our bloodstream. We are all interconnected, and what you do to the environment, you ultimately do to yourself. #quoteoftheday
Aside from the fact that when dealing with mental illness you still have to deal with society, life goes on, and you are a contributing member of society; I will soon be doing a video about my Avoidant personality disorder incorporated with depression disorder, anxiety disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and post traumatic stress disorder not for empathy or sympathy but to expand your knowledge about mental illness. I will be discussing how the disorders impact my everyday life, what it's like to live with them and to end the stigma surrounding mental health. Sometimes I don't want to live/deal with society but my in person and online support groups and family keep me going. I avoid certain jobs that require a lot of interacting with people due to the majority of society laughing & thinking my voice sounds proper. I do have to say that I haven't had anyone at my warehouse jobs think my voice sounds proper and I'm grateful that I can work in an environment of acceptance and make friends. My unknown neurological disorders which cause me extreme fatigue, is another reason I have depression only having enough energy to work. In addition to the part time help from family helping me clean my house, there're various reasons I won't go into publicly of why I'm able to clean my house throughout the year, aside from working. Goodnight! ✌
😍 #lunch = 2x real foods soy,linseed,chia corn thins (47) + 2x chesdale light n trim cheese (100) 🙌
Omg so I wasn't planning on buying scary processed cheese, was gonna buy a block but when I got to the checkout it declined so I went back & calorie counted the processed cheese & OMG this cheese (2nd pic) is only 50cal per slice 😱 so it all worked out so good and I don't have to cut the cheese n weigh it out, I can simply just get out the slices 😀 & it was so yummy & creamy.
I'm really tempted to binge purge more corn thins & cheese but nahhh, I'm gonna study & then in two hours getting picked up for AA meeting. Then when I get home dinner & night snack 😀
I'm literally in the best mood. I feel like an absolute fraud because because I eat 3 meals a day & a snack so I'm probably cured of ed even tho I honestly just obsess over calories. I doubt I've lost weight even tho I'm only on day 2 lol. Buying scales Wednesday afternoon & will weigh myself Thursday morning 👌

Late Saturday night thoughts// Blessings in Change
L O N G P O S T A L E R T‼️
This summer has been nothing short of amazing ✨It just kept on getting better from day 1☝🏼After battling some pretty tough stuff this past year and a half I started questioning a lot. I felt so distant from the person I thought I was and I just was not in a good place [sound familiar to anyone?! Keep reading!!] Anyone who knows me personally can attest to that statement 💁🏼It has been the most challenging time of my life to date, for real for real. I struggled a lot with the thought and this unrealistic goal of wanting to get BACK to who I was before I struggled with mental health. Well, this summer my perspective has seriously shifted 🌪and it's been such a gift [S/O God]. I hope that what I say next can be something that someone reading this needs to hear and who might need this perspective... I have realized it's not about getting back to that girl, to the person everyone else loved before, to the person you miss--it's about growing into the woman that God has designed you to be💫I am growing into an even better, more kickass, more wise Godly woman💃🏼 Do not spend your time focusing on fixing yourself for others. A lot of people don't understand exactly what you are going through, and that is ok! Focus on you! God has shown me that what I have been through has not changed me for the worst, but for the better. 👉🏼CHANGE IS NOT A BAD THING👈🏼This summer has felt like SUCH a blessing and is EXACTLY what I needed💞With each day I feel like I am progressing. Even if it's just an inch instead of a foot🚶🏼♀️I have my moments, but my mindset is shifting and it's helping me get through those moments even better than before. .

Ok I will start my lil spam with something... enlightening? However you'd like to see this as. Just visualising how my depression looks like.
Important to note that one doesn't have to be sorry for their mental illness, but they should over their actions yeah. -
8/19 - I volunteered today and got to teach explore cool science stuff with a group of awesome kids. Something about re connecting with young people who remind you a little bit of yourself reminds you to try to be kinder to yourself... we all need love and encouragement... I need to talk to myself more like I'm nurturing a younger version of me... watering my inner flower 🌺
I know, this sounds like it could be the title of a strange new movie, but no, it was my life today. It was one of those crazy days when everything happens all on the same day! It turned out that there were memorial services for two friends that were former co-workers plus my son’s party to celebrate his graduating from college.
Now, I’m usually pretty good at keeping my emotions under control, but I knew this was going to be a wild emotional ride for me, stretching from sad and mourning to celebrating and proud. I slathered on Balance and Console before each service and released the sadness of the two lost friends to be able to enjoy my son’s party. I’m not sure how I would have gotten through it without these oils for emotional support!
