Depression has no face. Yes its true. Depression means constantly battling the demons inside your head. It means not being able to do the things you should do. Its means getting up every morning feeling like there is no hope left in the world. But depression also means faking a smile everytime, it means saying you're 'okay' when deep down inside you're not. Depression is deceitful, because it likes to deceit other people into thinking that you're are doing well. And depression leads to suicide. If you know anyone who seems to be depressed, or even needs to talk, don't turn them away, help them out, who knows, you can be the one who changed their minds from taking away their own life.
It's not to follow the last social media trend. It's not an extremist/ annoying feminist move because "all men are like that". We all know there are great gentlemen too. But it's not like that type of act wasn't known either. It's because some women dared speaking up in a celebrities environment, reminding any girl next door that what they had/have to go through often enough is NOT normal. It should NOT be a norm. Looking it up, a norm is an "informal guideline about what is considered normal social behiavor in a particular group". And sadly, we tend to think "meh, that's just the way it is". Sexual harassment, in physical or verbal abuse shouldn't be what we're used to or worse, were traumatized with, even just once, and move on. In personal life or at work, at any age, wherever you come from or look like. You shouldn't have to go through that, with strangers or people you know. It's not too late to change it, it's certainly not too late for the next generations. I don't want to even think that my niece or little girls I use to teach to, or any woman could go through that shit. #dontacceptit#trump#harveyweinstein#verité#shameonthem#fightit#bebetter#truth#showthem#beaman#everyday#change#girlpower#treatgirlsright#metoo
We met a lot of new people today. So in honor of National Latinx AIDS Awareness Day, please allow us to reintroduce ourselves using a video our friends over at @TheGranVarones made for us. Thank you, and welcome to The Scarlet Ribbon Project.
When I say we have to come together, this is what I mean! Look at how far we’ve come! HIV has become extremely manageable. So much so that U=U, being undetectable=untransmittable. Yet those living with HIV today still face stigma as if we are still living in the 80’s. These educational and medical advances were done by no individual person. It took tons of people coming together, working on a common goal to get us where we are today. Now is the time for us to come together once again to make those same strides in social advancement by sharing our stories and showing the world that we are more than their stigma.
Early Monday, but Monday nonetheless. I believe in you. You can do it. You will get through this week. Overcome the obstacles, face the fears. You will handle it, it doesn't matter how. .
My mood has been kinda crappy and for some reason my sleeping pattern is completely messed up, making me tired throughout the day, emotionally drained at night, but hyper alert when I actually have to sleep. I also keep waking up because of nightmares/bad dreams like 2-4 times a night and last week just wasn't a good week for many reasons. BUT this week is not last week and this week has the potential to become much better. So I will see what I can make of it. 💪
For now I am going to try to sleep again so I will hopefully wake up rested. 🌄 Have a day/night, everyone. 💕
Today was an amazing day, we kicked off our project at this years annual AIDS walk! I just wanted to thank everyone of my friends and family who came and showed their support today! It is because of you all that we got to spread our message and touch so many people!
Even if you think crying is a bad thing, it isn't whenever you go out and fight over it and in the mist of fighting there will be times you cry but as long as you keep fighting it won't matter. #fightit#dailyquote
@teamrynkeby er for mange forbundet med Tour de France og kampen mod børnekræft.
Men der er mere i det end en tur på cyklen, nemlig alt arbejdet ved siden af. Sponsorer, netværk, og MyCollection, som er en nyudviklet platform.
En satsning der har været en succes, og viser at både de sociale medier og ens netværk er vigtigt.
4.8 millioner DKK er samlet ind via MyCollection, og det viser vigtigheden af sociale medier.
Frivillige har også en kæmpe andel, for uden dem ville det være svære at opretholde denne kæmpe indsats mod en frygtelig sygdom.
65.2 millioner DKK blev samlet ind i 2017, det stort.
@castello_di_roncade er stolte af at være en del af noget større.
Et stort TAK til alle omkring Team Rynkeby i Danmark, Sverige, Norge, Finland, Færøerne og Island, I er for seje.

Pick up that pencil, and draw your life. ✏
I went to see "Loving Vincent" today, a fully hand-painted documentary-style movie about the death and last year of the life of Vincent van Gogh, together with a friend and I had a good time!! Hope y'all have had a nice day. Good night 💕
Today is Friday the 13th!!! And with Halloween slowly approaching, there are plenty of scary things to be afraid of... being HIV positive no longer has to be one of those things. With proper education and practicing healthy and positive self care, HIV has become a lot more manageable. HIV is no longer a death sentence! We can lead long, happy, and healthy lives. Now, the fear that we face is the judgement from others.... the stigma. And just like that creepy clown, it is experienced differently by everyone and it is nearly impossible to overcome alone. It is only when we address the 🎈 in the room together that we can make strides in killing this monster we call Stigma once and for all!
A few days ago it was mental illness awareness day and unfortunately I wasn't able to post as it's such a personal thing to me. Last night I watched the @linkinpark carpool and I was surprised that I didn't cry. I was just smiling all the way through because Chester's music helped me through the good and the bad times. I smiled because even after death he has helped me to better myself mentally. It's been a month since I tried to put my mental illness behind me,although a couple nights ago I had a bit of an episode but every day I fight it and it's a struggle but I'm getting better and managing to control it better. I know it will never go away but you can make it better each day. Thank you Chester, thank you linkin park. #linkinpark#chesterbennington#mentalhealth#mentalillness#fightit#smile

#throwbackthursday to that super nice summer day this stud and I hit Castle Fun Park. The hair nets were for the go-karts. 🚗
I miss being warm already. 🙈
Anyone else feel a TOTAL shift in themselves come fall? I'm SO sleepy, I'm cold, I'm more cranky than usual, I have zero motivation... there's something that changed when the temp dropped below 15 degrees. Let's chat and pull each other out of this slump 😩
Today, I remember how wonderful this summer was and choose to fight the mopey fall blues that are trying to take over. 💪🏼
I think I'll start with a cup of coffee. ☕️ -
This past summer was pretty bad for me. Had it's good days and bad days. But deep down inside, I was in pain and hurting. My depression came back for those who didn't know but got worse than it did back in 2011. I had that darkness and sadness that swept over me and I didn't want to do anything about it. I pushed people away and was angry with myself. Some days I just wanted to call it quits but I didn't, instead I would just drink away my problems hoping it would go away. All I can say is the last couple weeks from August and now I pulled myself together, which I'm proud of. Been sober and have been hitting the gym and running again which I love. Have to thank my parents for always being there to support, listen to me for when I was hurting.Not only that but been working super extra hard these last couple weeks at work to accomplish and meet goals and to make peoples days with satisfaction and smiles. Feels good to be able to have my mojo back with my head on straight. So for those who are struggling, this is my message to you, don't give up on your fight! Be strong and take one day at a time. Some days will be bad and good but always remember your friend's and family are always there for you, your not alone. 💪👊 #beatdepression#depressionsucks#mymessage#mystory#humpday#headup#keepgoing#fitnessfreak#fitfam#staystrong#goodvibes#positivevibes#strive#betteryourself#beyou#inspire#believe#fightit#riseabove#notalone#selfimprovment#208girl
For some #artsy proof of this quote: Mondriaan's Victory Boogie Woogie is generally considered a very difficult and outstanding piece of work, despite it technically still being a work in progress😘 Keep up the good work on your own Victory Boogie Woogie.--------------------------------I started this day saying that I probably wouldn't do anything but lay in bed all day buuuuuuuuut, much to my surprise I got up later in the afternoon and I cleaned my entire room?? Like, it was so gross and messy and felt terrible about it and now I cleaned it? And I made my bed, and collected all my laundry and will put it in the washingmachine tomorrow! 😃 You've got to take your own advice sometimes :) Hope you all have had a nice day 😊 Have a night 💫
Today is national coming out day. And on this day, two years ago, the seed was planted from which @TheScarletRibbonProject was born. It started off with me making and posting a video on YouTube that began with me telling how I came out to my family as gay and ended with me disclosing my status (for the very first time) to the world. It was such a liberating experience. So much so, that I wanted to help others feel that feeling of all the years of fear and stress just disappear... I just didnt know how. It wasn’t until I was inspired by @TheGranVarones storytelling project, and saw the reach and impact they had that I knew that was what I was going to do. All I had to do was come up with a name. Now, I’m not going to sit here and pretend to have read The Scarlet Letter, but I HAVE seen #EasyA and the message I got from that was so empowering! How she branded herself, endured her own form of stigma, and owned people’s judgement but didn’t let it effect her, didn’t lower her self worth, and still managed to become a stronger person through it all! And that’s a message we wanted to stand by. So now we brand ourselves and share our stories because by doing that we take away the power that other’s judgement has on us and Stigma simply becomes ignorance.
