Tensions, differences and disagreements are part of life. Sometimes Counselling sessions are for families to work on healthier communication and to resolve past issues. To move forward requires a safe space, honesty and a commitment by all to work towards a healthier future. #family #life #conversation #safespace #therapy #counselling #honesty #difference #communication #coaching #families #elephants #dealwithit #wellbeing #wellness

EXACTLY! Listen, I’m single and happy. I refuse to settle just to be up under someone. Naw, someone has to show me they’re deserving of my energy. I’m at the stage in my life we’re growth and self preservation is of most importance. IF YOU GOT BAD ENERGY...FILLED WITH NEGATIVITY AND COMPLAINING I’m running we too grown for bad vibes. Putting myself first as my King will come. .

Angels live among us.  It’s true.👼 🧡 I was running errands and my wallet fell out of my backpack. Before I knew I even lost it, my phone rings. The voice on the other end says, is this Star?  I say, “um, yeees.” She says w a bright smile in her voice, “ I found your wallet.” Wait? What? I lost my wallet?I had to check my bag. Sure enough. And... I jumped in the car and on my way to meet up with her!
A kind stranger with an honest ❤️heart, quick sense and Ingenuity she tracked me down and called me through social media. I ran back to the market parking lot to meet her and still feeling stunned 😳 Thanks a Billion🙇‍♀️huge appreciation to you and your kind friend🧡  May this honest and good deed come back to you both in a billion ways 💜❤️🧡💙🌈 #thousandoaksca #peopleofTOca #thanksabillion #thanks #kindness #people #goodhumans #loveinstagramm

This extends to any form of relationships especially with love and marriage. 
How often do people truly honour the sacredness of the connection they shared with a person without exposing the most intimate details and personally shared information when things fall apart or when the relationship ends?!
How often can they go their seperate ways without using other people (not necessarily the best options too) to discuss their feelings and perspectives with. 
Yes, we all need someone to talk to but if a family member or certain individuals have no idea about the higher purpose of the relationship and the truth that takes place amongst the co-creation of a relationship then third party people often only perpetuate the toxic and victim cycle from their own filters as not necessarily from a compassionate and an objective position that offers advise for the highest good for those involved.

Who wanna FedEx me some #Marijuana #Weed?! I almost made 2 years and six months without any #Alcohol but I ended up #Drinking on June 21st, 3 days before that anniversary 😭 and the past week I've been drinking 3 of these at night to hopefully get to #Sleep but this isn't my thing anymore, I don't know of a plug around here for bud but I need one vice or another to help me #Relax and reduce #Stress. I no longer believe a few alcoholic drinks are OK in moderation because While at work I'll be dropping things because my fingers get numb, had my first stuffy nose the other day and my lazy left hip is acting up again ever since I started making this a nightly thing.

The more time you spend feeling like this. The less you do. Yes analys and let yourself accept the moment your in.  But when time is up you need to move. It doesn’t matter what it is that you do. But something has to be done. Our mind needs a break. And you time to enjoy life. We choose to suffer so often - I’m guilty of this all the time. But in moments of despair this is my to go to: 
WHAT TO DO:

1. Accept your feelings - you don’t have to like them but they are there and won’t go away until you delt with them. Truth is the only thing we can do is to accept this moment just as it is. Don’t try and run away from it. Be in it, accept, breath, accept - your here for a reason.

2. Remember in every obstacle lies a bigger truth, this moment had to happen right now for you. See this moment opportunity to learn and grow. All experiences have positives to them. Yes it might be hard to see at first but yet again you choose your perspective.

3. Move - transport your body from the state it is in now. It’s in movement we can break our thought pattern and the negative thoughts can stop. Have a shower, make a tea, go for a run, write a song. Liberate your body from the pain it’s holding. Let it out!!!! •

You’re the only one in charge of your energy and life. We can’t keep on blaming others for our suffering. If I’m really honest and harsh I’ll say that - we infact choose to suffer. Being happy (whatever that is) is something we have to work for. No one teaches us this. You have to! When you realise the control you actually have and how much one thought can change your whole perspective you will feel empowered and strong. Everything is inside of us you just need to have the courage to look for it. •

Isn’t this the truth? It took me YEARS to get to this point and I am still working on it everyday. Now that I have had a chance to reflect on myself and my goals these last few months, I feel unstoppable. Today had been a weird day for me though. Sunday afternoon the kids and myself go to Spokane for a week while hubby stays here. We have just spent the whole day with him playing video games and eating junk food because we can. The kids have LOVED having the both of us all day. Now they are working on their workbooks for school practice. But just because today has been ultimate cheat day, doesn’t mean the goals are any less for us. We still plan on getting some physics activity in on our date night and crushing it tomorrow with our goals. We don’t get many days like this where it is just family time and I am going to cherish it, even if that means a late night workout with hubby himself! Balance is key and I have been so strict the last few months, it feels good to relax. Tomorrow is a new day and my goals stay the same! To kick but, lose weight, and eat right! We have a lot to do tomorrow, let’s enjoy today :) #honesty #truth #familytime #junkfood #itsokayinmoderation #illfeelittomorrow #goals #icandothis #moderation #determination

There is a lot to learn in spending time in solitude. Most of all, you have to be brave and courageous. Because what I’ve come to understand is that in true moments of solitude, as you shift through all the feelings that your body has held onto, you have to slowly and gently let what no longer serves you go, with a kindness and a thank you - thank you for what you have taught me, thank you for allowing me to let you go, thank you for giving me new spaces to be open and free. Trust that in your solitude, the path that you’re making for yourself is where you need to be x

I’ve been told the transition from 1 to 2 kids is the hardest...but no one really knows what to expect. Having two little people, who need all of you, all of the time? It’s both challenging and exhausting in ways I never could have imagined. Which can make it difficult to feel like you are ever doing enough.
.
And it doesn’t help that we are constantly scrolling through a highlight reel of other people's lives. Which leads us to feeling the need to be better, to do more and to look perfect. And that demand spins us out of control until we feel broken and empty inside.
.
One month into this Mommin’ of two and I’m beginning to realize that my girls don’t need me to be perfect. They just need me.
.
I’ve been quiet on here the past few weeks and I sincerely appreciate the many messages of concern! But Sometimes you just need to step back and give yourself a break and know that your best is good enough.
.
I know I’m usually on here spreading all things positive but I think it’s important to share the imperfect stuff too. Because whatever it is that you are desperately trying to hide, fix or cover up? It’s okay. It’s normal. And I hope this allows you to create a space to be messy, imperfect and human too. 💕

It’s both challenging and exhausting in ways I never could have imagined. Which can make it difficult to feel like you are ever doing enough.
.
And it doesn’t help that we are constantly scrolling through a highlight reel of other people's lives. Which leads us to feeling the need to be better, to do more and to look perfect. And that demand spins us out of control until we feel broken and empty inside.
.
One month into this Mommin’ of two and I’m beginning to realize that my girls don’t need me to be perfect. They just need me.
.
I’ve been quiet on here the past few weeks and I sincerely appreciate the many messages of concern! But Sometimes you just need to step back and give yourself a break and know that your best is good enough.
.
I know I’m usually on here spreading all things positive but I think it’s important to share the imperfect stuff too. Because whatever it is that you are desperately trying to hide, fix or cover up? It’s okay. It’s normal. And I hope this allows you to create a space to be messy, imperfect and human too. 💕

Heyyy everyone, just me and one of doggos I get to spend time with and care for! 
This is to everyone(too many names to shout out to) but you know who you are! 
I started @barchukk9 and starting a business wasn't something I thought I was ever going to do. I love working with dogs, I love what I get to do everyday. But with that also comes long days, some sleepless nights, higher stress levels, no social life, resentment, higher anxiety, anger, exhausted/tired and more!!! As you know me, I keep it to myself normally but I want to express how I've been feeling lately. All those things above, are how I felt for the last 2-3 years. 
I want to thank:

Everyone who has helped me and listened to me along the way. A big shout out to my sister @barchuka_20 who has listened, been supportive and lent an ear when I need it. Even offering to help me walk dogs. My mom, dad and brother I love you for offering your advice even with a quick remark from me you still want to help. #love you!
Big shout out to my friends who have supported me @m.e.l.l.o.w.b.s.i.d.e.s , @relaxspasquamish. 
I know starting a business is a lot of work, I wouldn't change what I started. But I also wouldn't be able to get through this without someone pushing me to keep going(mom), someone to give me a hug(Mel and AR), someone to slap me when my nerves have gotten to me(my sister), someone to hold my hand(Kya), someone to push me to do things for myself, someone to tell me it will be alright(dad), someone to make me laugh(little bro). This is from my heart and just have to say THANK YOU... XOXOXO

YEE (and I cannot express this enough) HAW

Nathan and I tried two-stepping last night, and it was a lot more fun than I thought it would be. It was a little hard, especially with my back hurting. I was put on strong muscle relaxant which made me really sleepy and it gives me a headache and hurts my eyes. But it was fun, Nathan and I had fun. I’m glad I went.

Let’s talk about special events. Special events are so hard for people in general, let alone people with eating disorders and mental illnesses. 
The second and third slides are of my homecoming junior year. I was severely underweight, but I still felt like the heaviest person in the room. Looking back at the photos now, I look sick. And I was sick. An eating disorder is a legit illness. I was sick, and I’m still recovering. 
The first, fourth, and fifth photos are of my senior prom. There’s a huge difference. Yes I am bigger, yes I’m heavier, yes I am fatter (that’s right, I used the f word), but that isn’t a bad thing. I am so much healthier. Look at the difference in my face. Looks at the difference in my smile. There is actual light in my eyes. I don’t look I’ll. 
Although I don’t like that I’m heavier, and I’m not happy with my body, I am healthier and I am healing. 
Another big difference is who I’m with at those special events. Nathan makes my smile a little bit bigger and a little bit more genuine. 
Did you go to your high school homecoming/prom?

The first picture is me almost never, the second is me sometimes, and the last is me most of the time. 
I used to wear makeup all the time. Every day no matter what I would wear makeup to cover up all of my “flaws”. I felt more comfortable hiding under my mask of makeup. 
But I’ve never had makeup this glam. My friend Annie did this last night and I felt super awkward, but also beautiful, but mostly awkward. I wasn’t used to looking like this and I felt out of place. It was fun to try something new out though, and I want to learn how to do makeup like this. 
Most of the time now, I don’t wear makeup. For a while I wasn’t really keeping up with doing hygienic stuff because I was so depressed. And then I didn’t because I was so focused on my eating disorder. And now I’m just really busy with work and packing and getting ready to move. But I no longer feel like I NEED it. I like it sometimes, but I do not need to change the way I look to go in public. I CAN do my makeup if I want to of for fun. But I don’t NEED it. Thanks for coming to my TED talk😂

Do you like doing makeup, or going natural?

Hi, I wear a back brace. I am chronically injured. I am chronically ill. 
When I visited North Carolina for my college orientation, I forgot my back brace, and my back swelled up a crazy amount. My EDS messes a lot with my joints and flexibility. I also have spina bifuda, aculta, a birth defect/spinal injury. 
Anywaysss, I forgot my back brace, and my back swelled up so badly that my physical therapy couldn’t even work on it. I had to walk around in a pool to lower my core body temperature and reduce swelling, I also have to take super strong anti inflammatory medications, and ice my back often. My back is still swollen and hurting, and I wear my back brace all the time now. 
Also, my POTS has been acting up. My heart rate has been jumping all over the place. I get winded so easily. Stairs are killer. I get super dizzy and feel like passing out. I also am constantly dehydrated. The warmer weather/weather change is really affecting my EDS and POTS and it sucks. I hope this might help other people and like let them know that its a common thing.

I am going to college! It’s really starting to sink in for me. I never thought I’d make it to college and it’s honestly crazy to me that I’m here. 
I just finished my college orientation at University of North Carolina Wilmington. It was a very very stressful thing for me. It involved staying with a bunch of other students that I had never met, overnight (overnight is a big deal for me because I have severe anxiety, severe social anxiety, as well as insomnia). We had all of this information thrown at me all at once and it was crazy overwhelming. I was so so anxious, but I survived. I made it through the night, I met lots of nice people and new friends, and I learned a lot about what I’ll need for college, all the info about how to study what classes are required, meal plan etc. 
Although the whole time I was so anxious, I survived, I got the information I needed, and I met people. It was honestly rough, like we got straight lectures and information for over 12 hours straight. 
But now that I’ve gotten through it, it was a super helpful experience, I learned a lot, and I’m starting to get really excited about starting a new part of my life. 
UNCW lets goooo!! See you in August!!🦅🌊💙💚💛

Ice freakin cream. For a log time I believed that ice creams and sodas and candies and other foods were “bad”. And foods like vegetables, fruits, meat, etc were “good” foods. 
But the truth is... ALL FOODS ARE GOOD FOODS!! ALL FOODS FIT!! All foods are good, they differ in nutritional values, and what vitamins and minerals are in them. Ice cream provides me with dairy, fats, and a little bit of protein! It gives me energy and it tastes GREAT! 
I got put back onto a meal plan as a precautionary method. There are a lot of changes coming in my life. I’ve just moved into a rental house for a month, and I’m about to move to another rental house in North Carolina. Then I’m coming back to Texas and staying with an old neighbor, then Nathan ships off at the end of July. And then I go to California to see my friends and family. And then I start my first year of college. 
With so much changing, my dietitian and therapists both thought it would be a good idea to put me back on a meal plan for some stability and accountability throughout all these coming changes. 
Although I am a bit bummed to be back on a meal plan, I think it will be good for me in the long run!

Really hit home this morning.. remember, it’s all about perspective.

Where are you in the journey NOW?

Don’t second-guess past decisions and quit delaying your future by using everyone else as the excuse.

#mindfulmft There is a line from a favorite poem of mine, The Invitation, that says,
⠀
“I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself?”
⠀
That line has always challenged me, especially as someone who historically was a pleaser and care taker. What do you mean to disappoint another? Why would I do that? Shouldn’t we put others first? Won’t it be too much for THEM?!
⠀
I don’t know if any of that resonates with any of you, but I know that my role in my family system really played into me not being able to take on disappointing others in order to stay true to myself for a very long time. I didn’t even know what it meant to be true to myself, or how to check in with how I was actually feeling.
⠀
That’s what this work does, though. #Growth and #transformation #journey us towards ourselves if we let it. Getting to know what we like and don’t like, while challenging us to have the courage to bring it forward and honor it (even if that means someone else doesn’t like it).
⠀
Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not an invitation to not care about the experience of others. This is an invitation to get comfortable being #honest with yourself and then allowing that #honesty to take up space.

Extreme honesty might come from those of us who are used to living a more independent or self-sufficient lifestyle.
Maybe we never had to be “accountable” or “responsible” for anyone before, so we go off dumping out heavy and integrated truths. 
Maybe we are more avoidantly attached and have learned to defend and use our unfiltered truths as a tool to justify our story that no one will ever “get” or “accept” us.
.
.
Or maybe it’s simply because we live in a time where radical truth-telling has become the norm. 
Maybe we haven’t yet discovered a way to deliver our truths with doses of softness and sensitivity.
.
.
Extreme kindness on the other end can lead to codependent dynamics. 
Some of us had to cut off from parts of ourselves in order to take care of others. 
If that was the case, it would make sense that we might give up our voice or our truth in order to stay connected to others. 
If love was taken away or if we were only seen for “parts” of ourselves, we might then mask or cover up complex and difficult truths.
If we identify with the care-taker role, then we might stay quiet as to not have to take on the emotional burden of “hurting others.”
.
.
So how do we find a middle ground?
Is there even such a thing as a balanced or healthy way to offer our truth without hurting those we love?
I don’t think so. 
At least not completely.
.
.
I think we will hurt people even when we deliver our truths with kindness.
But how we show up after our truth has hurt someone matters a whole lot. 
How we make effort to soothe our partner after we’ve just laid down some difficult truth matters a lot.
I think learning to deliver our truths in ways that both express it and simultaneously honors our partner’s sensitivities matters a lot.
And sometimes both of those things can’t happen at the same time.
.
.
“I know that was really hard for you to hear. Are you okay?”
.
.
“I’m in this with you. What do you need from me right now?”
.
.
“That felt really uncomfortable to say because I never want to hurt you.”
.
.
“You’re feelings are important to me. How can I be with you in this?”

I came rushing home with tears in my eyes one day back in the fifth grade. I sat near my dadi and told her, 'She hurt me. She isn't my best friend any more. I am never making any friends any more.'
.
She patted my head as I weeped in her lap. If I recognised home from one smell, it was of her drenched in the smell of pickles or chai or some or the other food item.
.
In the evening as we were sitting side by side on the green grass, she told me, 'Name one person you have never hurt in your life. Take your time'
.
And under the star-filled sky, I sat with a pen and paper in my hands. At first, I thought I could name as many people's names as there were the number of stars in the sky. Then I came down to the number of fingers in my hands. Then to the number of sheep in my sleep as I dozed off.
.
The next morning over a glass of Bournvita and a cup of chai, my dadi grins and asks me, 'You couldn't even name one, could you?'
.
I looked down at my feet and shaked my head.
.
'See. You can't go through life without hurting people. You can't even go through life without hurting yourself. If I would have broken every relationship because someone hurt me, I would be left with none. You don't stay with people because they never hurt you. You stay with them because even when they do, you know they feel sad about it too. You know that those times don't last forever and do you know what to do in those sad times?'
.
'What?'
.
She smiles and tells me, 'You never let go of each other.' .

I asked you all to share with me something you wish your caregiver never told you. This was on the heels of a prior post on “dumping/venting” vs sharing + being honest with our children. It’s an important discussion to have, as the best way to shift your own parenting is to take a glimpse at the way you were parented. 
____
The most common themes were:
Details of marital problems/affairs
Financial burdens 
Bashing other parent 
Mentions of suicide/self harm 
Regrets of pregnancy 
Blaming child for lack of resources/intimacy/connection/freedom.
____
I know, it’s heartbreaking to share those. For a lot of you, it may have been the first time you ever thought about it. As a parent now, you may find a similar pattern in your own parenting. This also may alarm you. 
___
We repeat what we don’t repair. It’s not your child’s responsibility to carry the burden of your painful childhood. They aren’t to blame, nor is it their job to fix what is broken in you. It’s not their job to understand your hurts. 
_____
I see you wanting to break the cycle. It takes awareness + intention. One major starting point to keep in mind is SAFETY. Safety is what we need to explore, connect, learn, and try new things. It’s needed at the core of life’s essence. If sharing something jeopardizes your child’s safety, everything beneath the surface will suffer. 
____
When we place our own need for connection, sympathy + comfort above our children’s, this is how their safety crumbles. This chart will help you see the delicate balance between connecting + being honest, while staying mindful of this safety first and foremost. Often, it’s a little tweak in verbiage.
____
Children are very intuitive. They know when something “isn’t right.” However it’s up to you to use discretion + appropriate language to ensure their safety is supported. This will empower you to break cycles + stop the harmful patterns that hurt you as a child for good.

Sis, repeat after me: I reserve the right to be picky about who gets my energy and the energy I allow around me. I will not partake in conversations or interactions that do not serve me or add value to my life. I will do what’s right even when it’s uncomfortable and be honest even when it looks like being dishonest will help me level up. I will focus on my own growth, embrace my own journey, and never compare myself to anyone else. I am a winner and I will not allow the actions of others to cause me to act less than or forfeit my favor and blessings. Comment “She is me” if you have the same standards and values... I’m trying to locate more of my tribe, my sisters. 🤗💞💃🏽🏆 Be sure to visit shewinssociety.com (link in bio) to learn more about how you can win with me.

There are very few people in your life who will openly tell you things you need to hear, rather than what you want to hear, no matter the consequences. Recognize those people early and always keep them close. They’ll keep you going, they’ll keep you sane, they’ll humble you.⠀
