[Video on YouTube/In Bio]πŸŽ₯ Therapy doesn’t always go as planned. As a future therapist myself, I try to learn from every experience I’ve had on my own journey through therapy, whether positive or negative, in order to better help my own clients in the future. ✨ In today’s video, I’m retelling the story of how a series of miscommunications and mistakes led to one very unfortunate therapy session. 🀧πŸ˜₯ Watch nowπŸ‘‡πŸ» @psychminded__ . . πŸŽ₯YouTube: Psych-Minded πŸŽ™Podcast: @psychmindedpodcast πŸ“²psychmindedonline.com . . . πŸ‘₯CONNECT YouTube: Psych-Minded Twitter: PsychMinded__ Instagram: @psychminded__ . . #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters #therapist #storytime #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblog #myjourney #therapists #psychology #ptsd #psychology101 #recoverystories #psychologystudent #recovery #therapysession #therapysessions #therapy #depressionsucks #mentalhealthawareness
Let’s hear it for @pete.on.repeat πŸ‘ β€œ3 Years SOBER, one day at a time, on #REPEAT . . 3 years ago, I woke-up with my last hangover, the result of one final attempt to escape the reality of a lifetime of hurt: Growing up in a legacy of addiction, the untimely death of my parents, a failed marriage, climaxing in a swift, ultimatum-less fizzle, and long pause on suicide. - all quelled and neatly swirled in the bottom of countless bottles - one last hangover, one more for the road - the road that lead me here. . Hi, I'm Pete, and today I'm 3 years sober. In that time, my life has improved dramatically. My relationships with virtually everyone has improved. I'm a better father, brother, uncle and friend. Healthwise, I gotten active, lost over 60lbs, and quit smoking too. Carrerwise, my performance improved and resulted in 3 separate promotions. Without question, my life is better when I'm sober. It hasn't always been easy, far from it, but I've learned that experiencing life in its entirety, unencumbered by synthetic comfort is worth every ounce of struggle. Life is a beautiful thing, and I'm so incredibly thankful to be a part of it again. I have absolutely no regrets about getting clean.
A NOTE ON MODERATION AND PAIN-FREE FITNESS. Over the last month I started to have a lot of trouble with my joints. Not unusual - I’ve had most, if not all, of the β€œcommon” injuries that athletes get, and a few of the uncommon ones 😬, and once you have a few injuries they tend to bounce around the body and stick with you as artifacts. But this time was different. Regular nagging injuries weren’t going away, I felt extraordinarily tired, and I had a lot of brain fog. All of this was happening during a very stressful and sleep-deprived time, yet my natural instinct was to push through until I just got over it and things got better. Naturally that didn’t happen, and there’s a reason for that. Our bodies react to stimuli VERY differently depending on our current states. Even eating unhealthy or generally inflammatory foods - when we are in a peaceful and relaxed state of mind we digest and absorb much differently than when we are stressed, running from one place to another, eating in the car on a strict time crunch, etc.. The same principal applies to rigorous exercise. Part of the reason exercise works is that it applies a small amount of manageable stress to our bodies, which we then repair during recovery - resulting in muscle growth and the other fun benefits we get from exercising. Imagine a water hose wherein you slowly increase and decrease the flow, volume and pressure of water over time. When done correctly, the hose will probably expand slowly and adjust to the gradual changes and fluctuations to the demand on its structural integrity. If that same hose is already stretched to capacity, however, when more pressure or volume is added without relief it will likely develop small cracks and eventually break and burst in various areas. When our bodies and minds are already under immense amounts of stress, our bodies do not recover and repair and reap the benefits of intense exercise the way they do under other conditions. Far too often we force ourselves to try to pull from reserves that aren’t there, and we get our minds and bodies in trouble. Instead, force yourself to rest once in a while. Damaging yourself isn’t hardcore or cool. Be smart.

#tbt to our honeymoon...fighting the tears . . Just weeks before our wedding, I suffered a potentially career ending injury at work as an ultrasound tech. I was scared. I was in so much pain. I was depressed. . . I had been planning our destination wedding & honeymoon for almost a year, I was beyond excited for it to actually be here....then I got injured... . . I fought through so much pain throughout the wedding week, that when our honeymoon finally came, I had no more fight left and the pain came on stronger than ever. . . I remember having to keep my arm in a sling, clutching my arm in pain, that just wouldn’t ease, no matter the position. Forcing smiles in pictures through the pain. . . I wanted sooo bad to enjoy our honeymoon and have the relaxing time of our lives but yet all I could do was cry most days. This made me so frustrated and angry. Why couldn’t I get it together? . . I just couldn’t. . . Fast forward 6.5 years to TODAY.... . . I am STRONGER both physically & mentally. . . I am HEALTHIER. . . BEST of all.... . . I AM INJURY FREE.πŸ™ŒπŸ» . . I used to think having an injury was the end of everything. Now I know it was just my beginning.... . . Injuries are hard. They can crumble your whole world if you let them. If I learnt anything through this, it’s to allow yourself rest and then get back on the horse and strengthen yourself even stronger than you were before. . . β€œInjuries create change you DON’T choose. Healing is about creating change you DO choose.”
"Sometimes people will say well if you have depression does it mean you're not mentally strong? That's not the case. The way I like to describe it is saying well just like you could still have a physical health problem maybe like diabetes you could still choose to go to the gym lift weights and become physically strong - it may make it a little more complicated but it's possible."β € β € @amymorinauthor shares her wisdom about mental strength vs. mental health on the podcast this week.

#selfcareproject #blurtfoundation #blurtitout #365daysofselfcare I'm working through the self care booklet from the awesome @theblurtfoundation CEO Jayne Hardy and I wanted to note down some reflections on what I've done so far. I think I burn myself out being "all or nothing". You know, if your going to have a plan, then have a β­πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸΎπŸŽˆ*PLAN*πŸŽˆπŸΎπŸŽŠπŸŽ‰β­. Currently I struggle to drink enough water on one day let alone consecutive days!! #selfcompassion for me is (as Jayne so wisely notes) doing the itsy bitsy teeny tiny bits. (Was so tempted to go with "yellow polka dot bikini" there - random!!) I said to my therapist when I was feeling better that I worried about how sustainable this was, and he spoke about making things a "practice" and at the time (as so often happens) I was saying "yeah" while inside I was saying "wtf???" but I get it.. #smallsteps lead to bigger steps, and strides and eventually a wee stroll! So, time to bring the boundaries and the focus in. Can I drink a glass of juice and 2 herbal teas today AND tomorrow? I wish I knew why this makes me feel sad, and weepy, and vulnerable and scared. #traumasurvivor #recoverywarrior #recoverystories #narcissisticabuserecovery #journaling #compassion #healingslowly #mentalhealthwarrior #mindfulness #findingmybrave #feelthefearanddoitanyway #depressionawareness #overcomingdepression #anxietyawareness #overcominganxiety #cptsd

|| Cat Pose || β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ Amazing Sunday yoga with @saltwater_traveler. This girl amazes me. She is one of our first friends here in Maui. Soon after us moving here she came through the ER as a trauma. She had been hit by a drunk driver and sustained a broken femur. This is a devastating injury for anyone but especially for this activity loving surfer girl. We watched and cheered her on as she faught hard to regain strength and heal her body. It was so special for her to lead and share her practice in her home with us on Sunday. She is an amazing teacher with true aloha spirit. #yoga #saltwatertraveler #yogi #recoverystories

Look what I made!! First attempt at kumihimo braiding. I'm really quite rather pleased! #arttherapy #creativespirit #recoverystories I found the process of braiding it really quite therapeutic (it's a very repetitive pattern so quite soothing).

Hey fellow warriors✌ It has been a while since I actually done a post like this. A lack of motivation and procrastination was involved, i really apologize for it. This is more like an update on what has been going on with my life and stuff. I will try my best to have more of me telling my story and giving some advice :)❀ ------------------------Trigger Warning⚠️-------------------------- Anyways, I have not been feeling that well in terms of mental health. Around the last week of August I have been rather down and have been lacking motivation. Around the 1st week of September I kept myself busy by going for 2Β  youth rallys. I also celebrated my 15th birthday which was a milestone for me as I had never thought I would even be alive. Sadly, since last week, I have been having suicidal thoughts and temptations are strong. Urges to cut was very strong. It does not help my end of year exams are right around the corner. No, my exams was not the cause of my depressive episode. It can just come without me expecting it. Though, the thoughts have died down a bit, but eitherwise it is still quite strong. To all those who are struggling and going through dark time, remember you will get through this one day and there are people who love you, including meπŸ’šβ€ You are loved and you are worth it. Really worth it. If you or someone you know is in danger of comitting suicide, please call the suicide hotlines of your country on my story highlightπŸ’š You are worth livingπŸ’šβ€

Good afternoon..self-sabotage has always been a major theme in my life..drugs and alcohol continually tripped me up..any traction i gained was washed away with a xanax bar or single sip of vodka..usually both...ten days away from 2 years free from the grip alcohol and drugs had over me...i left the piece of me behind that no longer served me a purpose.. in doing this i insured that i will never be the same again..i cant be..i don't want to be..I'm putting the pieces back differently..I'm damn near unrecognizable..shoutout to the old John..i love you kid but i had to leave you where you were at..thanks for a lifetime of experience my guy..i promise to make you proud..the next ten are gonna be filled with some of my darkest moments..fuck it i stopped caring what people think a loooooong time ago..follow along or don't..i know someone somewhere will get something outta it.. have a great Monday everyone...fuck out my face...oooowwww!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ—£πŸ—£πŸ’―πŸ’―β›“β›“βš–βš–πŸš«πŸš«πŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸΊπŸΊπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒπŸ’£πŸ’£πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ€Έβ€β™‚οΈπŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈπŸ§˜β€β™‚οΈπŸ†πŸ†πŸπŸπŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜ . #cleanandserene #cleanandsober #cleanliving #cleanaf #cleanteam #recoverystories #qualityoflifemovement #ohmiestribe #lindennj #lindennjfun #lindenlegend #fuckoutmyface #yogisofinstagram #yogaeverydamnday #calisthenicsmovement #calisthenicsaroundtheworld #justfortoday #odaat #alcoholicsanonymous #narcoticsanonymous #soberlife #partysober #soberaf #bestversionofyou #smashingpumpkins #tonighttonight #melloncollieandtheinfinitesadness #90smusic #classicsong #motivationmonday

Good evening...on my 120th day of being clean and sober I came out on social media and announced i was in recovery..i was an alcoholic and a drug addict...my close friends were like uhhh yea no shit asshole what took you so long to realize πŸ˜‚πŸ€£..others were surprised and said they had no clue...towards the end of my run I didn't want the world to see me...i isolated..i didn't think anyone would understand..today I'm a member of NA..except I'm anything but anonymous..that was 600 days ago...wow.. . The great majority of NA's practices are the most amazing and life-saving methods there are to help free yourself from the grip alcohol and drugs have on your life..a few are a little antiquated..have room for some tweaking..or just flat out need to evolve in our ever changing world..anonimity is the spiritual foundation of NA and AA..you can do whatever you want with yours..I'm choosing not to be anonymous..I'm just one of many people on instagram choosing to show our faces...how horrible we looked in active addiction...how amazing we look today..the good the bad the ugly all up in yo' face with the hope to inspire someone else to become the best version of themselves.. "when everything's meant to be broken..i just want you to know who i am" hi..my name is John...and i am a most grateful recovering drug addict and alcoholic... have an amazing week everyone...fuck out my face...oooowwww!! πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ—£πŸ—£πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ“ΈπŸ“ΈπŸ‘‘πŸ‘‘πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸπŸβ›“β›“πŸ”—πŸ”—πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸš«πŸš«πŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸ’‰πŸ’‰πŸΊπŸΊπŸ₯ƒπŸ₯ƒβš–βš–πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜ . #cleanandserene #cleanandsober #cleanliving #cleanaf #cleanteam #recoverystories #qualityoflifemovement #ohmiestribe #lindennj #lindennjfun #lindenlegend #fuckoutmyface #yogisofinstagram #yogaeverydamnday #calisthenicsmovement #calisthenicsaroundtheworld #justfortoday #odaat #alcoholicsanonymous #narcoticsanonymous #soberlife #partysober #soberaf #thegoogoodolls #iris #dizzyupthegirl #90smusic #bestversionofyou #bestlife #recovery

Honored and excited to be joining an incredible group of women in recovery from everything and anything. The next three days will be packed full of listening, learning, and love. I'm hoping to be able to experiment with some in-the-field interviews while I'm there. I'll be the one low-key pointing my iPhone mic in everyone's faces. Come say hello. I'll also be sharing on our stories so be sure to follow along for @sherecoversla. β € ( πŸ“· @lindaparmarcoach )
Who else can relate to @bpd.mgt "Who am I? The Abandoned Child"? I know sometimes this is how I feel and I'm not sure if it's fear from today's realities or my inner child screaming from past traumas. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ She’s scared. She’s lost. She’s alone. She worries about you at night. She checks if you still there. She worries you might leave and never come back. She wants to be comforted. She can’t be soothed. She’s needy. She’s clingy. She cries a lot, often for no apparent reason. She curled up at night. She’s often inconsolable. She doesn’t trust you. She thinks the world is an unsafe place. She thinks she’s bad. She feels guilty all the time. She thinks she deserves to be abandoned because she’s bad. She’s not a child. She’s me. ➑️ Check out my related blog post The voices in my head - link in bio #bpd #bpdlife #bpdrecovery #bpdthoughts #bpdwarrior #bpdmemes #bpdstruggles #bpdthings #bpdstory #emotionallyunstablepersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #personalitydisorder #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #recoverystories #recoverystory #recoveryispossible #stopthestigma #recoveryisworthit #bpdawareness #bpdsupport #bpdfam #stopthestigma #abandoned #abandonment #abandonment_issues
Maybe I'm ready to get behind the wheel of one these bad boys again. The trucking school that Ontario Works sent me to was an epic piece of shit and didn't really prepare me or my classmates to handle an 18 wheeler. I ended up driving straight trucks and then finally garbage trucks. Hard work, but no trailer to consider. There'll be lots of work for tractor trailer in the countryside, though. If I can muster the mental strength to start learning about these monsters again, I could have a real adventure. That being said, I'd almost rather shoot myself than deliver freight to America right now...or ever again. #trucking #trucks #ontariotruckers #canadiantrucking #freight #freightdelivery #rookies #rookietrucker #fucktrump #orangedouche #18wheelers #tractortrailer #driver #recoverystories #garbageman #garbagetruck

In a conversation at work with a parent today, I was reminded of this... it’s a huge feat to have battled you demons and battled for your life to then come back into life and carry on. It takes strength, courage, and real determination. We shouldn’t forget this, or hide it. That story got us to where we are now. πŸ’ͺ🏻 #crackstellstories #survivors #mentalhealth #bewhoyouare #zerofucksgiven #beproud #lifehasoptionsforyou #doorswillopen #recoverystories

πŸ”₯Link to Ali's full story in bio!πŸ”₯ Your Wound May Not Be Your Fault, But Your Healing Is Your Responsibility. The Picture On The Left Was Taken During The Lowest Point Of My Life. I Had Been Abusing Pain Pills For About 6 Months And Was In The Early Stages Of My Heroin Addiction. I Was Also Experimenting With Whatever I Could Get My Hands On, Meth, Cocaine, Xanax, Benzos, Pills I Couldn’t Even Identify. My Addiction Is Something I Thought I’d Never Be Able To Recover From. I Truly Believed It Would Kill Me, And The Sad Part Is I Was Okay With That. I Had Come To Terms With It, Because At Least I’d Go Out High. I Was Severely Depressed And Beyond Miserable. I’d Wake Up Violently Sick Every Morning, Sobbing And Asking Why I Do This To Myself. Then I’d Swallow My Tears And Tell Myself To Get Up And Go Find Some Drugs, Because If I Did That Everything Would Be Better. Every Day Was A Never Ending Cycle Of Self Destruction. I Was Terrified To Quit, Terrified To Change, Terrified To Be Happy. I Couldn’t Remember What Happiness Was Like. I Couldn’t Change Because I Knew It Wouldn’t Be Easy Or Comfortable. But Nothing Good Comes Easy. I’m Actually Not Entirely Sure What Finally Clicked In My Brain To Make Me Stop. Maybe It Was The 2 Overdoses That Nearly Killed Me, Maybe It Was The Remorse I Felt Over Pawning My Late Mom’s Jewelry Just To Get A Fix. Maybe It Was Sitting In Jail, Detoxing And Feeling Like My Bones Were Shattering With Every Move I Made. But, Ultimately I Decided That My Life Didn’t Have To Be This Way And That I Had The Power Within Myself To Change.

Addiction is not a choice πŸ˜₯ It doesn’t surprise me when I wake up to another RIP post from a drug overdose. This is the reality of addiction left untreated. Without help, addicts die. I don’t understand how I become one of the lucky πŸ€ ones who found recovery before death from overdose or suicide from how miserable my existence was. I am beyond grateful that today I can be a messenger of hope. The old saying that β€œsome of us have to die for some of us to live” is bullshit. Too many of us have died. Nobody needs to die from the horrors of addiction. Don’t be afraid to ask for help!
