Depression and Anxiety is not just crying everyday. It's not just the struggle to get out of bed. It's more like being stuck in limbo and watching the whole world carry on around you. It's being happy on the outside but wanting to shut down on the inside. It's the girl who gives love and attention but sometimes wants to be alone. It's the girl who wears to much makeup in the hopes that no one will see her sadness. It's the person next to you always smiling. It's the person you tell it's all in their head. It's me. #notashamed #depression #anxiety #dailystruggles #nevergiveup
I think I am starting to evolve an ED. I often change my diet, eat less, try to fast (but I always get sick when doing that so I stop it midway in), etc. I don't know tbh. 🙁🍊
Okay, having a common first name is a struggle sometimes. There is always a situation where someone else has the same name. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For me, it’s everyday at work.
There’s a girl in my office who has the same name AND same title as me. Talk about confusing! Yes, we spell it differently, but people don’t notice half the time. In our whole company, there’s at least five other Brittneys/Brittanys... and, let me tell you, I receive a lot of their emails 😂. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To try to avoid the confusion, I’ve established myself as the Britt of the company. All my email signatures are signed Britt, the directory says Britt, I respond to Britt. I am so used to Britt now, however, I am now overly shook whenever someone calls me by my full name. Sometimes I don’t even respond to my full name now! It’s all fun, but the struggle continues... Does anyone else deal with this too?

I'm sorry, but I'm just a girl. Not usually the kind to show my heart to the worI'd. I'm pretty good at keeping it together. I hold my composure, for worse or for better. So I apologize if you don't like what you see but sometimes my emotions get the best of me & falling apart is as human as it gets. You can't hide it, you can't fight what the truth is, You can pretty lie and say it's okay, You can pretty smile and just walk away, Pretty much fake your way through anything, But you can't cry pretty. 😢😭😌🔮💖 #challengesoflife #dailystruggles
The struggle is real with having such an ambitious and passionate personality 🌟 🤦♀️
Why can't I just forget what was said?
Yesterday I cried, a lot... for so many reasons! But I just allowed myself to cry and to feel angry. Angry that every time God reveals something to me or lights my heart on fire, Satan is right behind him to knock my feet out from under me. Angry that my flesh is so weak. Angry that I let my need to control everything take over. So I cried... like ugly cried y’all! A friend told me to listen to “Not Today” by Hillsong, and I cried some more. I asked my kids to forgive me, for reasons they don’t understand yet (hormones, exhaustion, fear, small health issues that make me feel bad, the fact that I miss my husband terribly) and they were gracious towards me. I thanked God for forgiving me and for all of the good things He has done! Then I decided to take the rest of the week off, and boy do I feel a weight lifted 🙌🏻 Homeschool will be there next week and we are going to try and rearrange our schedule... and I’m going to put less pressure on myself. Sometimes it’s ok to take a break. Sometimes it’s ok to cry so hard you give yourself a migraine (it’s all good though I had Copaiba oil to save me). Sometimes it’s ok to fall and let God pick you up.... just make sure you let Him!
Pretty much how my day is going so far. I accidentally shattered a glass thermometer while trying to shake it down 😭😭
Last night, I woke up crying in the middle of the night. This morning, I woke up in tears again. And I don’t know why. My brain hurts. My heart hurts. And I want to be able to go to the gym to walk it off on the treadmill but I can’t even leave the house. But then I caught a glimpse of my lower body in the mirror and noticed some progress on my booty, so that cheered me up just a little.

I used to feel like I couldn’t share about my business but SHOOT—how cool is this?! I was able to leave town unexpectedly for 6 days without having to call out of work and I could press pause⏸ on my work for a few. But when I was ready to get back to it, I just needed my phone/laptop and the discipline to work on MY time. I’ll take it!👩🏼💻🙌🏼
My team and I have some pretty big things in store for brand new boss babes who are ready to do the same! Can’t wait to get started!
I feel this way all too often. Being the “strong” person out the family or out the group of friends. I always find myself trying to figure out someone else’s problems. One thing I’ve learned is that there will always be bad days. I trust that my Savior will continue to guide me and keep me through every obstacle I face. I understand that having a weak moment doesn’t make me weak. And it’s OK to get tired sometimes. Shit I carried for a whole day... but o had to dry those tears and provide. We have no choice but to make it. We will make it. I refuse to let life break me down. I FIGHT BACK!!! #KeepFighting #GirlTalk #Life #DailyStruggles #DepressionIsReal #TherapyThroughTruth #LetsTalk #HowDoYouHandleStress
EATHER YOU RUN THE DAY OR THE DAY RUNS YOU - Jim Rohn
Wieder zurück in Zürich, kurz 30 min trainiert, geduscht, umgezogen und jetzt auf dem Weg nach Luzern. Egal wie wenig Zeit man hat für ein Selfie reichts immer... 💁🏼♀️😂🤷🏼♀️
Last week I was down and out for 2 days straight due to anxiety and let it take over my life. I was mad at myself for getting drunk with my friends to celebrate a friend's birthday during the week.
Then on top of that I am not working right now or traveling or doing much on a day to day basis and because of that I allowed my fear, what other people are doing with their lives and my insecurities of that to take over my life for 2 whole days instead of living my life.
When I judge myself I start to put that judgement onto other people and think they feel the same way that I am thinking. When in reality I am the only one knocking myself down. I was the one mad at myself. I was the one being disappointed in myself not doing more with my life at this moment in time.
I am learning how to be nice to myself. I am learning how to care for my mind, body and soul. It's not easy. It's an everyday, multiple times a day task, but it gets easier every time it happens and that's progress. Dealing with my anxiety is admitting meditating really does help me, it's admitting I need help and can't do it all on my own and that really is okay, it's admitting that exercise brings me happiness and herbal supplements calm my body and mind. It's admitting that my life isn't as bad as I'm making it out to be in my head which is great!
I am healing. It is taking longer than my patience was willing to give myself at first but it's working and I am growing.

Ik ben geen bang mens en ken niet veel angsten, maar er is er één die me al vijftien jaar achtervolgt. Ik ben een volwassen vrouw van 25 jaar, moeder van twee kinderen, en ik ben bang in het donker. Nog steeds. Als in zo bang dat ik ‘s nachts niet alleen naar het toilet durf. Dat ik bij vlagen geen vin durf te verroeren als Koen ‘s avonds is trainen en ik alleen thuis ben. Ik uren in bed lig met wijd opengesperde ogen omdat ik steeds bang ben ergens iets te zien of horen, als de rest van de wereld wel slaapt. Nu de dagen weer korter worden en de zon ergens net na achten alweer onder gaat word ik met mijn neus op de feiten gedrukt. Ik dacht altijd dat het vanzelf wel over zou gaan. Dat het ‘gewoon’ bij me hoort. Maar als iets wat ‘gewoon’ bij je hoort je zo belemmert in de dagelijkse dingen is het misschien tijd er wat aan te doen. Toen ik Koen vannacht voor de zoveelste keer wakker moest maken was ik er klaar mee. Ik ga me er niet meer voor schamen, maar ik ga er wel iets aan doen. Vijftien jaar is lang en het is mooi geweest zo. Ik ben het beu! Werk aan de winkel.

Lately, I look careless just in my photos.😪
Because in real life I lack sleep, I am always hungry and constantly working on something. Moving from one task to another, from one meeting to other.
Funny part is even though I want a break, my mind is like naaaaah, you can do this.🙄🤦♀️💁♀️

Hell yeah wir stecken mitten in der Trotzphase! Also ich meine MITTENDRIN 🙈
Heiliger Bimbam, ich hätte ja niemals nie für möglich gehalten, das Kinder im zarten Alter von 2,5 Jahren soooo einen mega starken Willen haben können (wollen). #alldaylong
„Mama, nein das will ich nicht“, „Mama, nein jenes passt mir nicht“, ich will das nicht anziehen, ich will das nicht essen, ich will nicht nach Hause.. ich will nicht, will nicht, will nicht 😱 und dieses „will-nicht“ endet meistens in einem Tränenmeer 😢 Das #mamaherz
blutet, aber alles kann man ja nicht durchgehen lassen - der-auf-der-Nase-Tanzbär lässt grüßen 😫
Alter Schwede, wann geht das vorbei?? Ich bin ja abends echt froh, wenn wir gegessen, uns bettfertig gemacht haben und ich die Lichter aus machen kann 🤫🤭
Und nein, natürlich liebe ich das #tasmanischeteufelchen
trotzdem abgöttisch! Sorry #instapolizei
, hier passiert nix schlimmes. Aber manchmal, ja manchmal, da würde ich ihn gerne mal ganz kurz zum Mond schießen (um ihn anschließend schnellst mögliche wieder zurückzuholen)🤪 #imgoingcrazy
Any tipps for bärenstarke Nerven 🥃
Schwieriges Thema, I know 😵

😅— we got in a good 25 minute workout AKA mood enhancer. Even while out of town!
Ya want the truth though?
I didn’t want to do it... at all😖I’ve eaten everything and anything that had chocolate on it. But it’s Monday and it’s a brand new day. We always have the opportunity to start fresh!
God always throws us curveballs⚾️⚾️It’s our responsibility to decide how and what we do about it! BOOM!💥
Well our latest shopping adventure wasn’t quite so successful on Sunday; a bit of a mixed bag!
It’s hard for me to explain the anxiety I get when going on these outings. I always hope for the best (fingers 🤞🏻 and toes crossed for luck); but more often it turns into a very challenging situation for not only Imogen but for us. 👀 The onlookers only add to this anxiety 👀 however I’ve slowly learnt to not give two hoots what other people think. I do dread the day when Immy starts realising SHE is being judged though; for now she is oblivious 🙏
One of my biggest fears is that one day Imogen will start isolating herself and we will become forced hermits in our home 😫
So we continue to try to access the community. Some days successfully and some days not so much.
What I do know is that ordinary weekly tasks like shopping for groceries would be incredibly difficult without the support of our family and of Alicia (Imogen’s support carer and friend). The NDIS funding we receive for supporting Imogen in accessing the community is life changing for our family and makes me feel so much more confident in trying these things.
We had some CHALLENGES...
❌ Not wanting to enter the shopping centre
❌ Refusing to ride the travelator and sitting in the middle of the walkway
❌ Meltdown cause she wanted to go to Reject Store and she couldn’t tell us
❌ Refusing to come to get groceries ❌ Getting fixated on riding the elevator up
and down for 15 mins 💪🏻 Alicia and I had to divide and conquer so my groceries would get done and Imogen wouldn’t lose it completely .
Some WINS to CELEBRATE 🎉 ✅ Immy wore her ear muffs on an outing with us for first time successfully (usually only wears at school)
✅ We got into the shops whilst it was very busy and crowded
✅ Lined up and paid for lolly
✅ Told us she wanted “Playground”. She remembered it from over a year ago and we were at the opposite end of Westfield 🤷🏻♀️
✅ She sang happy birthday to a child at the playground AND didn’t steal any cake!
✅ She chose rainbow ice cream out of all the flavours and expressions this to Alicia.
✅ Greeted people off the elevator - “bye bye! See ya later!”
