For the longest time I always wondered why I was the darkest out of all my siblings. And why I was shamed for it. It made no sense to me. I did not choose to be this way and I didn’t see an issue with being this way. The emotional abuse I endured in my childhood solely due to the pigment on my skin was astronomical. I couldn’t understand it. Everyone said that my sisters and I look alike—almost as if we were clones of one another. So I couldn’t understand why they would call one person beautiful/pretty but another ugly just because of the difference in skin tone. The only difference was our skin color (and of course personality). Personally, I thought I was pretty. Really pretty. Beautiful. I’d go out and get complimented on my physical features, the richness of my skin, my character and such, so it really made no sense to me why some people would say such things. So I decided not to listen to them anymore. I wiped my tears, looked at my face, and I liked what I saw. I took a deep breath, looked at my body, and I liked what I saw. I closed my eyes, looked at my heart, and I liked what was inside. I decided to envelope myself in self love. Because not only do I think I’m the shit physically, but I know I’m a good person too. And that’s worth more than gold. 🤗

Harassment happens when you receive unwanted behaviour from another person which alarms or distresses you. This can include malicious phone calls, threatening texts, threatening and insulting language and damage to property.
.
Stalking is a form of harassment and can include following, contacting or attempting to contact you, monitoring your email and internet, watching or spying on you and other similar behaviour.
.
It is a criminal and civil offence for another person to harass or stalk you and you can report the matter to police. Many police forces have a specialist police officer who deals with harassment or stalking. Make sure you get an incident number when talking to the police about any form of domestic abuse, including stalking and harassment.
.
You may also be able to get an injunction in the civil courts to stop the harassment or stalking taking place. If an harasser breaches an injunction, it is a criminal offence.
.
If you're experiencing domestic abuse of any kind, or you're concerned about someone else, contact DASU North Wales for confidential support and advice.

I help women see why they are feeling anxious and frustrated and confused.
I help them to notice what is holding them back from being their true self, and what’s preventing them doing what they’d love to do in life.
When we don’t understand why we are depressed and anxious all the time, we don’t know how to stop feeling crazy or how to think straight.
We just know that we are desperate to NOT feel this confusion and guilt and angst anymore.
We plead with ourselves to get our shit together.
We have so much we long to do. We have so many ideas on how to save the world, how to make a difference in the lives of less fortunate .
There so many places we long to visit, holidays we wish to take, careers we’d love to have, adventures we would race towards but something is keeping you stuck.
You just do not know what.

Therefore no counselling, no personal development, no therapy has impacted enough to make a big shift to freedom
The people I help still don’t know why they continuously self destruct.
They still don’t know why they don’t like themselves when everyone around them loves them.

And their problem is that they can NOT move forward and live the life they long too; free of this mental prison , UNTIL they see what it is that’s kept them stuck.

What does it mean to “reinvent” yourself?
:
:
↠Have you been in a long term relationship that just ended?
↠Are you healing from an abusive relationship that caused you to lose your sense of self?
↠Do you tend to mold yourself based on who you’re around?
↠Are you just not happy with who you are as a person?

Anyone has the option to change who they are or – reinvent themselves. I’m a strong believer (and many others would agree) that if what you’re doing isn’t working then change something!

If you’re healing after a breakup, life will seem very hard. You’ll feel overwhelmed and alone. So how do you start the healing process?

If you’re trying to build a sense of self, you’ll also feel very overwhelmed. Where would you start? How can you change the way you’ve acted, most of your life?

Three years ago I was faced with this challenge. I read and journaled and took notes during my counselling sessions in order to help others who are struggling to heal their sense of self.

Part 1 of this project has just been posted on my blog (Link in bio). Please take the time to read and follow along for the next part coming out soon!
This is the part where we build our foundation, our roots. So that we can grow into who we’re meant to be.

Hudson, New York

Great weekend with these two rascals.
Even though they suffered through their parents’ divorce, they came out pretty great (in my humble opinion). I, like so many, was afraid to leave my toxic marriage because I thought it would irrevocably damage my sons.
I did. It didn’t.
So I guess the moral of this story is:

Divorce doesn’t damage kids; a toxic environment does.

Reactions are what most identify as their emotions, when i reality it’s just a mask or illusion the emotion is wearing to “protect you” from pain.

The truth is, if we just allowed ourselves to feel the raw power of our emotions it would awaken a truth deep inside of us that would shift our lives completely into a more expanded, open and colorful reality.

This is embodiment, becoming one with it.

Crazy enough I was sharing with my Soul Flow Experience Ladies how when we struggle to open our 3rd eye or imagine even, it’s because we are disconnected from our emotions.

We manifest from our emotional body, they are very much connected.

If you are ready to open your life and all the possibilities, consider a 1:1 mentor ship. Spots now open ❤️ PM for details .

You feel anxious, depressed, uninterested in sex, overwhelmed, emotionally exhausted, confused, frightened, out of control, embarrassed, ashamed, desperate to find answers, angry, trapped, and resentful. Most of all you just feel incredibly hurt and deceived.

If the words “enabler” and “flying monkey” come to mind, so they should. .

Funny how the people who take it upon themselves to tell you to be The Bigger Person never bothered to acknowledge that you were a worthwhile person before that. And never will afterwards. .
.
Start from the premise that you are a decent, good person, all the time. And do NOT ever waste your time proving it to someone who couldn’t care less about your wellbeing anyway. .
.
Better to prove to them that you have no wish to be The Bigger Person by telling them where they can shove their toxic advice. You might enjoy it. .
.
Or at the very least just check with them that, by saying that they want you to be The Bigger Person, they are acknowledging that the other person is small, shallow, immature and incapable of behaving in a half-way decent way. .

Double tap if that Bigger Person routine annoys the hell out of you, too. .

Reposted from @mentalhealth_support9 (@get_regrann) - BPD is a personality disorder and a very complex mental illness. It’s very difficult to diagnose it because it gets often confused with anxiety,depression or even bipolar disorder.These are the 9 traits according to the DSM ( Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders.) Remember: a person with BPD doesn’t need to have all these symptoms, in fact, according to the DSM, a person just needs 5 of these to get diagnosed. If you can relate to these symptoms or you think you or someone else might could have BPD, go and see a professional who can help you. BPD is a very serious mental illness that needs treatment.

From the choice of dinner to large investments, I had no say. If I tried to object, silence treatment or rage was what I could choose from. Take your pick.
.
He never took no for an answer. .

If I wanted to go to bed earlier than normal, I was ridiculed and called weak. So I learned to ignore my body’s cry for rest and stayed up. .

I could never be the real me. I didn’t listen to music or watch films, because he would laugh out loud at my choice or mock me so badly, that living without music and films was easier. .

If he came clothes shopping with me, he wanted to decide what I should buy. Never mind what I wanted.
.
Talk about loss of identity. .
I am now slowly, but surely finding out who I am. I can’t even begin to describe the feeling of freedom.
.
Scary at first, but better and better with time.
.
I am living authentically and reclaiming my life ❤️ .

I think what bothers me most about what happened with the sociopath is knowing that I would never do the same to him. Years ago my husband read messages from him and got so angry at how he was so pervy with me that he wanted to call his gf (now his wife) and tell her what he’d said. I wouldn’t let him. I felt awful and protected him when I could have easily thrown him under the bus. I think of how this time when he lied to his wife about who I was “to save his marriage” and how I fucking played into it. I messaged her and told her it was all me. I was terrified he would kill himself if she left him so I played my part as the crazy needy friend who’d forced him to talk to me. I stayed up so many nights after that wondering how he was, wondering if he was ok or even alive. Later that week my therapist suggested he’d probably set the whole thing up, it’s textbook narcissism to exit in a way they can control the narrative and smear your name in the process. I didn’t want to believe it but something inside of me just knew it was truth. You know that feeling when you hear truth and you know it? I was overcome with grief and sadness. The messages that followed from me were all so pathetic, trying to understand what he’d done and how he could do that to me. He swore on the LIVES OF HIS CHILDREN it was all HER. She was “crazy” and blocking me. I knew he was lying but I couldn’t prove it til I got the statement. I couldn’t prove it til I heard him lie about reading my email knowing what he’d done was KILLING ME. I felt so worthless and alone and he loved it. He was posting pics on social media laughing and making jokes with hairgel in his hair, he was not a man that was just barely holding it together he was a man who’d gotten exactly what he wanted. He could pretend to his wife that I desired him and he’d rejected me, he had her to hide behind. To think of the way he lied on the lives of his children tho makes me sick. Who does that? Who could ever do that? He sacrificed me, literally, so he could feel good about himself. It’s the most evil thing I have ever witnessed first hand. #ISurvivedaSociopath #Narcissist #EmotionalAbuse #SmearCampaign #Gaslighting #ImStillHere

I think what bothers me most about what happened with the sociopath is knowing that I would never do the same to him. Years ago my husband read messages from him and got so angry at how he was so pervy with me that he wanted to call his gf (now his wife) and tell her what he’d said. I wouldn’t let him. I felt awful and protected him when I could have easily thrown him under the bus. I think of how this time when he lied to his wife about who I was “to save his marriage” and how I fucking played into it. I messaged her and told her it was all me. I was terrified he would kill himself if she left him so I played my part as the crazy needy friend who’d forced him to talk to me. I stayed up so many nights after that wondering how he was, wondering if he was ok or even alive. Later that week my therapist suggested he’d probably set the whole thing up, it’s textbook narcissism to exit in a way they can control the narrative and smear your name in the process. I didn’t want to believe it but something inside of me just knew it was truth. You know that feeling when you hear truth and you know it? I was overcome with grief and sadness. The messages that followed from me were all so pathetic, trying to understand what he’d done and how he could do that to me. He swore on the LIVES OF HIS CHILDREN it was all HER. She was “crazy” and blocking me. I knew he was lying but I couldn’t prove it til I got the statement. I couldn’t prove it til I heard him lie about reading my email knowing what he’d done was KILLING ME. I felt so worthless and alone and he loved it. He was posting pics on social media laughing and making jokes with hairgel in his hair, he was not a man that was just barely holding it together he was a man who’d gotten exactly what he wanted. He could pretend to his wife that I desired him and he’d rejected me, he had her to hide behind. To think of the way he lied on the lives of his children tho makes me sick. Who does that? Who could ever do that? He sacrificed me, literally, so he could feel good about himself. It’s the most evil thing I have ever witnessed first hand. #ISurvivedaSociopath #Narcissist #EmotionalAbuse #SmearCampaign #Gaslighting #ImStillHere

Trauma!

What parts of the brain do mental and emotional trauma affect?
All emotions are processed through two little almond shaped parts of your brain called the Amygdalae. Each Amygdala's job is to process emotions, survival instincts and memory.

It is thought that they are part of the Limbic System in the brain, but new evidence is offering support that they may function independently.
Every sense that results in an emotional response of some sort flows through the Amygdala. Even more fascinating is that the sense of smell goes directly to the Amygdala.

I will discuss what happens to the Amygdalae when trauma occurs.
While trauma can cause a lifetime of concerns for individuals, the great news is that there is hope.
Havening is an approach to helping folks deal with their fears and traumas that plague them.

For more information about how I can help you find some relief, reach out.

Just needed to get it out of my damn head already. I’m tired of living with shame, it’s so fucking toxic. I’m a rape survivor, and what happened to me is not my fault.

Have you noticed how, whenever someone tells you to be “The Bigger Person”, they are actually telling you to put up with toxic behavior, uncomplainingly?
.
.
If the words “enabler” and “flying monkey” come to mind, so they should. .
.
Funny how the people who take it upon themselves to tell you to be The Bigger Person never bothered to acknowledge that you were a worthwhile person before that. And never will afterwards. .
.
Start from the premise that you are a decent, good person, all the time. And do NOT ever waste your time proving it to someone who couldn’t care less about your wellbeing anyway. .
.
Better to prove to them that you have no wish to be The Bigger Person by telling them where they can shove their toxic advice. You might enjoy it. .
.
Or at the very least just check with them that, by saying that they want you to be The Bigger Person, they are acknowledging that the other person is small, shallow, immature and incapable of behaving in a half-way decent way. .
.
Double tap if that Bigger Person routine annoys the hell out of you, too. .

I don’t like using the word toxic - it’s emotive and judgmental* - I prefer the word abusive which is more neutral and factual.
_
But in our society, though we’re getting better at recognising behaviours like gaslighting as abuse, a lot of us who repeat patterns of “toxic” relationships might not be able to see that what we’re actually in is an abusive situation.
_
If you keep finding yourself in relationships of any kind - romantic, platonic, familial, professional - that drain you, make you feel crazy, or less than, or where you are straight up bullied, lied to or abused, you may be codependent.
_
Codependent people aka chronic people pleasers or fixer empaths are like a honey pot for toxic / abusive relationships because of our early conditioning.
_
I talk more about this and a whole host of other codependent identifiers and techniques for codependent recovery in my online course Lovingly Fierce - out now, link in bio 💖🙌🏻⚡️ #lovinglyfierce
_
*Why is “toxic” emotive and judgmental, and why is that a bad** thing? Simply and briefly:
1) When you’re trying to leverage yourself out of an abusive situation it’s better to deal in facts than get stuck in the muck and mire of victimhood.
2) It doesn’t acknowledge that though we have been abused, to a certain extent we have created the dynamic together with this person - perhaps with our codependency. When we own that, we can heal from it 😻.
_
**Also, I’m not the Internet or language police! This is my personal way of dealing and teaching. If the word toxic helps you right now, do what you gotta do, boo! Just don’t use it as valve to let off steam then stay stuck 😘😘.

We’re winding down our #HoneyHealthyRelationships series talking about guilt and guilt-tripping as a warning sign of abusive relationships. Survivors of abusive relationships report that one of the most common emotions they felt throughout their abusive relationships was guilt; guilt for not fulfilling their partner’s sexual desires, guilt for not thinking about how their actions might affect their partner’s, guilt for spending money on themselves, guilt for spending their time how they wanted to, and guilt for not being good enough to please their partner. In many ways they felt an obligation to take care of their partner, rather than themselves.

Healthy relationships celebrate mutual love and support, safety, independence and respect for personal autonomy and agency. If you’re concerned that you may be in an abusive relationship, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-7233 or chat online at thehotline.org. This resource is trusted, safe, confidential and completely free of charge. (Image by @mayaafrancis)

Some people have no idea how horrible their words can be.

Ive lost around 4 stone since Nov and its still not good enough for some people.

Why would anyone say to someone "have you put on weight?" I would never dream of asking someone that. EVER!

Mentally ive always had body issues because ive always been put down by those who r super important to me. They think they have a right to mentally torture me about my weight and ive never been above 16st and im 5ft 7", so generally carried it well. Im now down to around 12st.

I still have my mum bod n was starting to make peace with my shape but then someone who shld know better and knows how much ive struggled physically and mentally, makes a comment!

I currently feel like shit! Im pretty sure i have an eating disorder as i can go days without eating then i binge.

You couldn’t just ‘let it go’, because it was everything you wanted and everything you had prayed for. It shattered you. But because you wanted it so much you kept trying and you kept giving even when you were getting nothing in return.
You thought that if you changed yourself and brushed all those red flags to one side, you’d be able to get what you’d always dreamt of.
You thought that all you needed was more time for you to convince them that you were worth it.
You spent your days and your nights perfectly planning what you were going to say when you saw them and eventually, you lost yourself.
But Allah SWT had to let you wander in order for you to find your way back to Him. He left you to be naive for you to discover your own inner strength. So keep the scars you have, as a reminder of how He SWT saved you, and keep the wounds as a reminder to never stray away from Him again. Put your faith, your heart and your soul in His hands and you will never get hurt. Ya Allah, I depend on You and You alone, so protect me and keep me safe from the evils of this world 🥀 @islamic_seeds .

But Allah SWT had to let you wander in order for you to find your way back to Him. He left you to be naive for you to discover your own inner strength. So keep the scars you have, as a reminder of how He SWT saved you, and keep the wounds as a reminder to never stray away from Him again. Put your faith, your heart and your soul in His hands and you will never get hurt. Ya Allah, I depend on You and You alone, so protect me and keep me safe from the evils of this world 🥀 @islamic_seeds .

Oklahoma police arrested an 18-year-old woman who’d allegedly purchased a rifle and told a co-worker she intended to gun down 400 people at her former school.

Pizza parlor employee Alexis Wilson, 18, of Tulsa, showed a colleague video of her firing an AR-15 in a rifle range and told that co-worker she was planning to shoot current pupils at McAlester High School, according to ABC News station KTUL. An anonymous tipster alerted cops to the incident.

One of the reasons I posted this is because people like the suspect through their own admission, was bullied & probably had a host of other personal to emotional issues going on. And it's these people that slip through the fingers of society and sometimes they're too damaged but many can be helped. Still - no amount of emotional or physical trauma justifies using a gun that could hurt or kill innocent other's. This individual & countless others are obviously no exception to this thought but many willingly decide to commit to the act regardless. People can be helped but only if... They truly want it

What makes this simple message so hard to take on board? Being trained into believing that you have to earn love. .
.
People who teach you that you have to earn love do so, in part, by feeding you the lie that your relationship with them could be perfect - if only you didn’t mess up all the time. .

Surely they wouldn’t keep saying that if it wasn’t true?
. .
Actually, why would they stop saying it when it works for them?
. .
A toxic relationship could only ever be toxic because one person is always polluting it with their lies, manipulation, contempt, selfishness, fault-finding, cruelty and much more besides. That person is not you. .
.
It was always going to end badly. The only question was how much of your life you threw away first. .
.
So, give yourself credit for doing the best you could in a wrong situation and accept the failure of the relationship as a blessing. .
.
Now, you can learn the lesson and let go of toxic illusions. You really don’t need them in your life. Double tap if you, too, had been clinging to that illusion but are letting it go now. Repost from @scapegoatrebellion_ .

First they go all out - all out of character - to win you. .
.
Then, having won you, they go all out loathsome on you to see just how much they can get away with. .
.
Narcissists love to get away with violating the rules that other people are happy to live by. .
.
Toxic people seriously believe that as superior - if not superhuman - brings, they have a right to do more harm and behave worse than lesser mortals, like the people who love them. Double tap if “your” Narcissist, also, thought they were a higher form of life. .

“My” Narcissist ex used to gaze at his reflection, fondly, in the mirror (usually after he had cut himself several times shaving🤮) and announce - in all seriousness, “I am such a wonderful guy.”
.
.
He believed it. So did I. 😱Despite the mountains of evidence to the contrary. 😱😱
.
.
Whether or not “your” Narcissist is a comparable klutz at personal grooming, they doubtless stretched your credulityto the limit, too. Until, one day, you finally woke up, listened to the toxic noise coming out of their mouth and realised...
.
.
.
“This is a deeply objectionable person. There is SO little to like, let alone love, about this person.”
.
.
And if you are feeling that you still love them, chances are, you haven’t reached that moment when the scales of denial and manipulation finally fall from your eyes. Yet!
.
.
Double tap if you, too, were shocked to discover what a deeply unlovable creature “your” Narcissist is. .

This is a really important difference. We are always trying to do the right thing. While they are always trying to do the right thing for them. Empathic caring people will be destroyed by the narcissist. It takes too much energy to deal with them, and it’s detrimental to our health, when you are that giving and are with people who will take until you have nothing left. Empaths need to learn to look after their wellbeing first, especially around the narcissist.....
