There are moments when I am sitting in this office with someone and all the medicine I have to offer is “I hear you. You’re in so much pain. It totally sucks. I know. Thank you for sharing it with me. I see you.” .
I mean.....I don’t love those moments. They are certainly not my preference. Alive in me is a force that wants you to feel better, get better, and fast. Immediately, please. Actually, right now, and permanently, thank you. Even though I know better, that all the clinical skills under the moon won’t result in healing if it’s not your moment to heal. That being a healthcare practitioner means making friends with all the 10,000 things out of my control. That sometimes what someone needs is a witness, and there is healing in being witnessed, and I know this to be true because I’ve experienced it myself and watched it happen in so many others, countless times. That no one can possibly have all the answers, all the pieces of the puzzle of how bodies work and people heal. .
I mentioned this all to a friend and she said, “it’s too bad you can’t put that on Instagram” because she thought it would be unprofessional. So here I am anyway, because transparent honesty : I am imperfect and don’t have all the answers....and neither does anyone else! Sure, we have perspectives, many techniques, clues, windows into pieces of the grand and complex puzzle of your wholeness....but we don’t have the picture on the box to refer to. We just don’t. And if any practitioner tells you they do, I hope you run fast in the other direction...and if you’re in Brooklyn feel free to run straight to my office, where at the very, very least, I will sit with you and say “I see you. You’re in pain and you’re feeling afraid it won’t ever change. I don’t know why it’s happening either. It totally sucks. I see you, doing an amazing job of sitting in the shit and watching and waiting. Here, have some tea.” .
Relationships are not that serious. No need for desperation when there's literally, plenty of fish in the see. Literally. And it's not so much of the presence of a boyfriend/girlfriend as much as it is about commitment. You might be calling these other women "hoes" but I'm willing to bet your man is out fucking these "hoes" behind your back, and then he goes home to beat you bloody til you vomit, because he's insecure about himself. #realtalk #💯 #relationshipgoals#marriagegoals#commitment#life
This may shock you, but not all days are made up of picture perfect frothy coffees and keto bites 😒 Some days are hard. some days you feel let down by a doctor, or worse, your body. when poor results mean more tests. when you feel alone and not enough.
And then a phone call to your mom (and a good cry), a conversation to a girlfriend, and the warm embrace from a partner can lift you up and remind you that you are not alone. and i couldn’t be more grateful 🙌
We all have our struggles and are on our own wellness paths. Recognizing my own by taking it easy tonight with this humble broccoli kale soup 🍵 Whatever path you are on, be kind to yourself and grateful for even the smallest of things 💕 #realtalk#selflove#grateful#selfcare
6M @ 8:22 avg》Pacing was everywhere tonight🙄 I think I jinxed myself after my last post. Legs felt so fresh in the new @injinji compression socks though😍 Taking everything one day at a time over here..
I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go, things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things fall together#realtalk#foodforthought#grateful#godisgood
Once a shit talker, always a shit talker. If she has to put others down to lift herself up, she's toxic. If she's only focused on lifting herself up, and not those around her, tred lightly. Choose your company wisely.
Some women are simply cunty bitches pretending to be cool. Deep down, they're insecure, self conscious and pathetic. Pay close attention. They're lurking around in #wildfeminist and #futureisfemale shirts.
Time for a serious, Irish breakfast tea-fueled IG post! WOO! So despite me attempting ( And actually succeeding... most of the time... ) to better myself, the last few months have been... truly depressing. An unyielding sense of uncertainty and doubt creep over me day in and day out. It's not something I feel entirely comfortable talking about yet, and only a few people know, though in due time I may reach out for support. It's made me reflect on friendship and loyalty. The friends who will be with me until Odin calls us to his side ( Looking at you, @gabriel.cash.9 ), the friends who weren't really friends at all, the friends that never were, connections severed before bonded, and the unexpected friends who came from left field to be supportive ( Looking at you, @natashaiis ). Friendship for friendship, loyalty for loyalty. Don't let people be the parasitic lamprey dangling from the taint of your soul. <3 #teatime#irishbreakfasttea#friendship#loyalty#depression#overcomeit#teatalk#realtalk

☝🏽What is success? 👉🏽To laugh often and much. 👉🏽To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children. 👉🏽To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends. 👉🏽To appreciate beauty. 👉🏽To find the best in others. 👉🏽To leave this world a bit better, whether by a child, a garden patch or a social condition. 👉🏽To know even one life breathed easier because you have lived; this is to have success... 💪🏽😎🤙🏽🇵🇷#cruztraining#cruz#realtalk#cruz#facts
We look to others to say the magic words, to look at us in that magical way and to love us like we’ve never been loved before. It wasn’t until I started talking, it wasn’t until I started sharing and until I started owning my own understanding. This is when I felt understood. This is when I felt loved. This is when I became Empowered! I love to encourage others to tell their story as I continue to tell mine (via YouTube) because that is where the real magic is at. “The wise guide lives inside” and when we realize that our voice is our teacher (to ourselves and maybe others) we also realize a whole lot more 😉#TruthRoom#wisdom#empowerment#realtalk#youtuber#spirituality#truth#universe#motivation#positivity#lightworker#ownit#iloveyou

Picked this up in a 🏹 season 5 episode where Oliver was having a heart to heart with Thea. There’s no reason why we can’t be in a state of happiness while dealing with our internal struggles. Attacking your issues with a positive mindset will result in....positive changes. #DefTalk
Life is a balance. A balance of energy. A balance of intention and action. A balance of health and illness. A balance of work and play. Just like the lotus flower when we are muddied, we can still grow
