I have #ocd and #idontmind talking about it. #mentalhealthawareness
Hey guys! So I went through a pretty devastating breakup about 2 months ago. I want to share this because breakups are difficult in general and can be harder with a mental illness. I want to say that it is important to respect yourself and hold on to your dignity as well as respect the other person. 🔷️ The first few weeks, I felt a gripping fear of being alone and being "left" and that is when it dawned on me that I suffer from abandonment issues. Add that to the anxiety and depression and it was a worldwind of emotions and internal chaos. However, even though I think about the relationship and the breakup almost every day, I am doing better each day. I want to share some tips to help through the process: 
1✔ Block the person on social media, phone number and anything else. This is for you, not as an insult to the other person. It is extremely difficult in general after a breakup when you wait for that text or phone call that never comes. 
2✅ Try speaking to a professional. I see a therapist regularly but since the breakup, I have started going more often because I know it is something that has a positive effect on me.
3✔ Meditate. I began meditating regularly when the breakup happened and with consistency and time, it has helped calm my mind.
4✅ Do things that provide you with a sense of accomplishment. 
5✔ Help others. Starting this Instagram account and fully committing to putting all of me on the table for all of you in the hopes that I can help you, has helped me immensely each and every day in getting through this time. 
6✅ Lean on a couple of friends. Do not talk to too many people about it because the majority of people can unknowingly make you feel worse by discretely sharing their own fears and desires. I have a few great people in my life that even though it's been 2 months, I can still text them and say "I'm having a tough day, can you help?" and they help without giving it a second thought. 🔷️ I'm here with you guys every step of the way during this journey we call life. 🔶️ #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #tryingtochangetheworld #breakups #sadness #happy #IDONTMIND #icare #relationships #men #women #empathy #life

If I leave laundry on the bed Coco will always lay in the middle, same with if I lay out my outfit for after I shower. But what does she do when I have both in separate piles? Pull one closer so she can kind of lay on both. Guess I will always smell like dog (and coffee)! #cocopuffdog #ismelllikedog #idontmind #hatelaundryday

Hey everyone! I am completely fascinated by the brain and neuroplasticity. I have often said to myself that if I could go back in time, I would have become a neuroscientist. I will definitely be creating posts on the brain and neuroplasticity but please take a few minutes and learn about it either through a Google search or YouTube. In essence, neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to change and adapt. So. Freakin. Cool. I am a complete nerd when it comes to this stuff but I also do think it's valuable knowledge for everyone to know because this information could help you change your life.

Last month, actor Chris Wood, who plays Mon-El on The CW’s Supergirl, did a mental health campaign, "I Don't Mind" to help put a stop to the stigma around mental illnesses. I got one of the t-shirts. Today another package arrived - with another t-shirt, this one signed by Melissa Benoist, who plays Supergirl.  No note, no explanation. Not sure why I got it, but it’s pretty cool. #idontmind #supergirl #nicesurprise #littlethings

Had a great interview over the phone for a new book coming out next year! The book is entitled, "Early Homecoming" and it is about LDS missionaries who came home early due to physical or mental health, loss of faith, worthiness issues, etc. I love being able to share my story! Every time I do, it helps me to accept the past and move forward. .

Yes, my room is messy, but I wasn't going to clean it just for a photo. Welcome to my mess💚

Hey guys, I definitely had a tough day emotionally and let it out by crying as soon as I got in my car after work. Crying doesn't make you weak. Being emotional doesn't make you weak. Like I said before, life is hard and I am so proud of you for getting this far. Keep going, keep moving. You got this.  My hope is to normalize all the struggles we go through - because they are normal and there is nothing wrong with you.

I'm sitting at my homeoffice, thinking what is wrong with me.
I know there's is nothing wrong with me, but with a mental disorder, you can't control when you get this thoughts. 
So I keep on fighting. By watching a favourite tv show and writing down, what I struggle with. -

My momma’s lamb soup with a salad 😍😍 for years I thought I wasn’t worth more than my kids’ leftover, rejected, half eaten food. And I think a lot of moms find themselves in that position. But even if there are little hands reaching for your soup (yay for influencing little minds and tastebuds) you ARE worth the little extra time it takes to make yourself a beautiful meal which will not only fill your belly, but your heart and soul with all that self love you’re pouring into yourself. You ARE worth the 10 minutes it takes to SIT and eat a meal. The children will survive, I promise. It doesn’t have to extravagant. It can be as simple as heating up some soup and making a salad from the massive batch of hard boiled eggs, salad mix, and cucumbers. You are worth so much more than your kids rejected leftovers. #selflove #healthjourney #momlife #grabbylittlehands #idontmind #thanksmom #freethesugaraddict #ketogenicdiet #ketosis #eatfattoburnfat

My coworker is aware that lately and especially today has been rough for me and this person asked me if I was doing okay and if I needed anything. Oftentimes, those who experience mental illnesses feel like they are facing an internal battle every day and it can be exhausting. When someone takes the extra couple of minutes to ask how you're doing and if you need anything, it means so much. 🔷️ Mental illness or not, everyone has battles to face - let's try to take a couple of minutes every day if possible to do what my coworker did.

"For awhile I was really focussed on grand landscape views. The payoff and reward for the end of a sweat and dirt filled hike. I still am. There's always a need to remind yourself how small we are in the world. A view with a not-so-subtle reminder that the universe will work itself out regardless of what choices you make in your general daily stressors.
.
But lately I have been fascinated with the complete opposite. The fact that there is so much complexities in the smallest of details. Like the musical patterns of the little waves gently crashing into the shore. The individual shapes and designs each waterdrop makes as it gets pushed away from the sea for a moment. Or the mirrored emotions of the sky in the puddles beneath my toes.
.
Each of these little details add up to create a grand beautiful image of the earth. We are all part of that image. We all have distinct characteristics that are needed to make this world go around. We all have a meaning to our soul- we just need to find it. ✌❤🌲."

I'm not ashamed to show you my worse drawings or pictures or bad lyrics. I'm not really talented, but as each of us, I'm unique. And it doesn't matter if I'm famous or have famous/thousands of followers. To support and help other people, each of us have the talent. The question is are you willed to help?
-
I'm proud of how I walk my path. And I'm proud of likes from @grantgust @justinbaldoni @idontmind @shethority @maisiersellers because it shows me the humanity from my big stars in my little world.
-
Btw it's easy to like something --> takes a sec, but if you're reading the text and left a comment (which should belong to the text 🤔), you show me you're willing to take your time to get to know me. -
I'm not mad at anyone who doesn't like my acc. Some of you're enough to make me believe in the good of humans.

As I look in your eyes
My fear begins to fade
Recalling all of the times
I have died
And will die.
It's all right.
I don't mind.

#tbt to rocking my #idontmind tee at Disneyland. Depression has its ups and downs, but “I don’t mind” discussing it.

off with the BAND-AIDS 
The power that words and emotions hold when you don’t allow yourself to work through them is a force like no other. It’s almost too easy to slap band-aids on open wounds, not giving them the proper care that they need in order to heal. 
So there they remain, open, sore, and with an increasing amount of pain, but as long as you keep those temporary fixes available to you, you may not find any reason to sit with it any longer - out of sight out of mind, right? 
No, not even a little bit. More thoughts on this, the disappearance of my voice (medically and emotionally speaking), and the emotions it left in the wake of it all, on the blog 👉🏼 link in bio #morethanlyme | snap by @adammckibben

@idontmind #idontmind sharing my experience, strength (and weakness) and hope about my mental illness.
·
I was diagnosed with depression at the age of 12 and was hospitalized twice around the same time. There was family therapy and "family meetings" prior to my parents' divorce when I was 7, followed by a personal school counselor when I was 8 and 9, followed by a slew of psychotherapists until I was 13.
·
My illness went into "remission" from age 14 through 27. I use quotation marks because, in hindsight, I was merely masking the depression with alcohol. Suffice to say, I've been sad a long time.
·
Today, I am in Alcoholics Anonymous and I have a sponsor and the best therapist I've ever had. I have the right medications and a supportive father, in recovery himself 3 years. I am a hopeful mental health advocate and a hopeful volunteer for @namipbc (National Alliance on Mental Illness).
