EVERYONE needs to be asked if they are ok.
.
Sometimes we get so caught up in life that we forget to check in with our loved ones and it can be really hard for those who are struggling to make the first move to say they really aren’t ok.
.
Asking the question gives a space for someone to unload. All you have to do is listen. 🧡

Inktober #20: Tread
**Anybody else struggling with this? Let me know in the comments, I would love to hear how you cope!**
A self confessed people pleaser, I find myself treading carefully around some people. I’m so fearful of hurting feelings or causing annoyance that I sometimes feel like I can barely function around others let alone have a coherent conversation.

I’ve been offline a lot bc I feel so fucking low but occasionally I come on Instagram to see how people I care about are doing. Yes, I’m a lurker. Your smiles make me smile.
I read about this in the news days ago & today I come on Instagram & all I see is this tape of the lowest moment in a boy’s life being shared over & over. A tape that went out for the sake of ‘news’ against the wishes of the school & the family. A disgusting violation of privacy in the name of their right to inform the public. Now, I see all these activists for causes I really admire sharing this with misinformation & using it to push their own messages. None of them are talking about mental illness. They just talk about how many lives were saved & a lot of wp are getting warm & fuzzy about the black coach saving the white boy - he’s Latino not that it matters. (Cynic in me believes less white people would be sharing it if they knew that.) So no one seems to care about the facts or that this boy & his family are still dealing with this awfulness & will continue to long after the next viral video takes over.
I just want to share what’s not being shared as much because I do believe that people will care to know this. It’s easy to get caught up in the drama of the video but it’s also real life for this boy. If my suicide attempts were shared around like this, recorded forever publicly online, being exploited by strangers, I’d just be more determined to do it again & succeed. #menthealth #mentalillness #suicide #gunviolence #ruok

Western Ultrasound for

Dad 2.0 😍


We're having a girl and im stoked! For me this is such a beautiful second chance. •

With my first daughter, as most will know by now, I tried to force her mother into an abortion, and when that didnt work out I made sure she knew I didnt want to be around. •

When I see this scan, yes I feel proud and full of love, but I also feel deep heart ache for that woman. That woman who I mistreated. That woman who went through this whole beautiful process, alone while receiving toxicity.


Although im not that same man, I do feel this is my chance to bring this little girl into the world with nothing but love and gratitude. To show how Ive matured and grown. To be the man and father Im meant to be. •

It’s been a long semester & I’m in the closing weeks of my Uni degree.. When I reflect on the journey, it started with this amazing woman - Aunty @sharleneleroydyer .. She planted the seeds many moons ago and a big reason to why I decided to finish what I started.. What she has done for Indigenous education in the Hunter area has been extraordinary and I can’t thank her enough for what she has done for me personally.. Thank you for having me at the Yapug 20th Anniversary Dinner.. I appreciate you and the work you do and have done doesn’t go unnoticed ❤️🎼.

SO PROUD of my friend, Stef for releasing this amazing book! More info below 👇
.
Guest post from wellness blogger Stef @wellnesshealth17 🙏 .
Mental health wasn’t something that I had to worry about in my younger years. I was your classic overachiever.
Everything I touched turned to gold. I had lots of friends, did well in school without trying, had a good job and was earning a lot of money for a young person by the age of 23. That’s when it started. Constantly shifting the goal posts and searching for the next achievement left me stressed, ungrateful and anxious.
I managed to get by but things got worse when I finally failed at something in my life - my new business. Anxiety & depression set in and because life was so easy for me before & I never “failed”, I didn’t have the coping mechanisms to deal with the challenges that were ahead. I hit a new low & had a breakdown. I felt even worse because I was no longer the perfect, successful person everyone thought I was.
I was tired of living up to an image of what society expected me to be, so I got to work on building up a new mindset. A mindset for me that would make me happy. My goals changed & how I went about life changed. 1 year later I was happier than ever. I felt obliged to help others just like me, as it is not right that in this day and age, mental health is at its lowest. Suicide rates are climbing and we need more awareness and help.
I wrote a book about how you can help build your own positive mindset. Things like writing out your thoughts, journals and cognitive behavioural therapy are massive positive influences on my mental health. My book, “Redesign Your Mind” explains how these tools worked for me and how they will help you too. A portion of every sale is being donated to mental health organisations which you the reader will be able to nominate. I wish you all the best on your journey towards positive mental health @wellnesshealth17 @redesignyourmindbook

There is increasing awareness about #mentalhealth and more acceptance about discussing this openly.
Those who know me, are aware that I love to talk! But I also love to listen.
My job involves lots of listening.
To achieve the best result for any patient, requires listening to their needs, their expectations, and providing information to allow patients to make an informed choice. .
.
We are all so busy in our lives. I think it’s important that when we ask #ruok, we actually make time to listen to the answer. .

In our trade we have came across some of the most amazing people ever... spiritually, religiously and physically, one of the headlines that we all seem to come across with some hardship is “Mentally” and to most souls out there the synonyms are “Depression & Anxiety” in our day and age alongside society doing it’s absolutely worst job in the world because of the negativity influences that we all consume each day... it is up to us as human beings, friends and loved ones to be the answer to someone’s pain big or small we all have a gift we share to heal each other especially the individuals that need it most. Listen twice as much as we speak back, we have two ears for a reason and one mouth. We are all equal and have uniqueness about us that sends positive attractions out and not keep them in. We are all aware of the circumstances that bring on this kind of feelings wether it be life being a little brat towards you, your relationship be at home, school or work whatever the case may be please stop being stubborn and open up towards someone you trust, a mate, family member or your favourite BARBERS IN THE WORLD.

🐝This might sting a little...
.
🙋🏼‍♀️99% of your current situation is all YOUR doing. If you want something different, here’s 3 BIG things you must understand.
.
1️⃣ it takes belief. You must believe it is at least “remotely possible” and that you deserve it. Why not you? If you have time head over to YouTube and search “don’t judge potential” by @ben .
.
2️⃣ focus wins over talent. And guess what? Focus is a skill. Which means you can learn it. It is said the average millionaire took 7 years to amass their fortune. The only shortcut is to focus and find the right mentors. This is true on business, therapy, fitness, marriage, relationships - you name it! It’s not about working harder.

🐝This might sting a little...
.
🙋🏼‍♀️99% of your current situation is all YOUR doing. If you want something different, here’s 3 BIG things you must understand.
.
1️⃣ it takes belief. You must believe it is at least “remotely possible” and that you deserve it. Why not you? If you have time head over to YouTube and search “don’t judge potential” by @ben .
.
2️⃣ focus wins over talent. And guess what?  Focus is a skill. Which means you can learn it. It is said the average millionaire took 7 years to amass their fortune. The only shortcut is to focus and find the right mentors. This is true on business, therapy, fitness, marriage, relationships - you name it! It’s not about working harder. The more focused you are the faster you’ll get there.

On the right... Today. 42yrs old. Work injury fucked my dominant left arm, slipped into deep depression, now on copious physc meds!
I can not put into words how devastated I am, I can’t even look myself in the mirror anymore 😢

Never apologise for being sensitive or emotional. It's a sign you have a big loving mooshy heart ❤ and that you aren't afraid to let others see it 👀
Showing your feelings and your emotions are a sign of strength 💫💫

Astro is a bit sad, because unfortunately we have had to postpone the release date on The FASTR Process.
It will now be December 15!
Just in time for Christmas gifts. And trust me! The book will be an awesome gift!

I did a bit of speaking to the staff at the Mount Eden Prison in Auckland the other day.
What we do for work, effects us. Sometimes positively, other times negatively.
Work environments can be tough for different reasons and a prison environment has certain elements I, and a large majority of others will never have to worry about.
I take a laptop and projector to work.
These guys pack stab proof vests and pepper spray.
But we are all humans and humans have emotions and humans get tired and humans have shitty days... So no matter what you do, it’s important we take care of ourselves but also those we work with.

Because everyone you work with, yes the people you are thinking about right now, those ones. They’re your work family.
And we need to take care of our families.

So often many people don't place value on things that they can not see, and mental health is one of those. Especially for men, so many of us have been taught to get our shit together, be tough and bring out our best while hiding our shit to ourselves.

That is the opposite of what we want to do. MANchester Project wants to bring awareness to the significance of mental health to men in an informative and fun way. We connect the community to a variety of topics that aim at how to a holistic lifestyle, and we want to create a community where people can feel safe to express their issues and be empowered. We have been achieving these goals by connecting professional and credible speakers that moved and lifted our audience up and help them recognized the importance of mental health among other things. If you see that resonates with you, we look forward to connect and see you in the room! 🌟- Phuc Nguyen is 1 of our Community Project Leaders, he is also a Husband, Brother, Son, Millennial Team Strategist, Friend and so much more.

Happy #selfcaresunday Warriors! @ashleymariesieb is on the blog this week to talk about accepting help as a form of self-care. Check out the sneak peak below, and click the link in our bio to read more!
.
Where do we learn that asking for help is a sign of weakness? Who teaches us that accepting help means admitting defeat? These people exist. Because many people, including myself, have struggled with the concept of accepting help. So, let’s get this out of the way early. Read these sentences and then read them out loud so you can declare these words as your truth:
.
Accepting help is a sign of strength.
.
Asking for help is a sign of bravery.
.
Admitting you need help is courageous.
.
If you want to care for yourself better, start by flipping your script on this idea of getting help.

After hearing the devastating news this morning about a young girl I know from Perth taking her life, I felt this was appropriate to post and how important it is that we talk about what’s REALLY going on. For years it was so taboo.

I’m not one to talk personally but I would like to share this.
In the early hours of January 1st 2014, James Dean Dorloff’s life was taken. James was my high school boyfriend, he was my best friend. Someone I truly cherished, he was caring, generous, adventurous and lived life to the fullest. His life was taken by a young man who could not comprehend his own actions, on drugs and mentally ill. I ask myself why did no one recognise that this young man was the way he was? Why was there no help for him? Because if there was then we probably wouldn’t have lost such a precious life.
The people that surrounded James in this horrible moment, witnessed the devastating loss and forever would remember this moment.
Unfortunately, now a few years later, James last girlfriend, Katie, has taken her life. Such a beautiful and happy girl. I remember she came to me after James and I broke up, asking me as a friend if she could please date him, because she really liked him, but she wanted to make sure it wouldn’t jeopardise our friendship. She cared so much about making other people feel happy. I remember sitting with her at James funeral and she said to me “no one will ever understand”. I saw the pain and sadness that destroyed this young girl.
So I ask, why aren’t we doing more? We need to stand up collectively and raise more awareness about Mental Health. We need to reach out, support and love one another. People need to know that it’s OK, NOT TO BE OK. That they aren’t alone and to speak out when they feel that they are.
Each and everyone one of us will or have experienced loss. Many of us will battle mental health. So I ask you all today, to reach out to someone, send them a message, tell them something positive or great about them. Give someone a hug, say hi or even smile to a stranger. Our small actions could help make such a big difference. @ruokday

“It's difficult to put yourself out there and show your vulnerabilities and even more so to ask the question about someone's mental health. Take me for example, someone with a larger than life persona who seemingly has a smile from ear to ear every time you see me out in public. But inside is a man who fights his insecurities and anxieties daily, someone who constantly cannot sleep no matter how hard I try. All because of my fear of disappointing those around me whom I care so very much about and my fear of not living up to my own expectations. I am lucky to have a network around me that helps me through, an amazing wife who constantly checks in and makes sure there is always a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen and a voice to comfort, for that, I am so grateful!” - Founder and Chef of Sarap London, Ferdinand Montoya, shares how his support network helps during tough times. 💛 Work in hospitality?

Before you can look out for others, you need to look out for yourself. And that’s ok. If you know someone is struggling but you're not in the right headspace or you don't think you're the right person to have the conversation, try to think of someone else in their support network who could talk to them.
These tips can help you decide if you’re ready to start a meaningful conversation. Find more tips at https://www.ruok.org.au/how-to-ask (Link in bio)

Today is World Mental Health Day with this year’s focus being on suicide prevention.

Help raise awareness of suicide and more importantly how we can all play a part in preventing it.

If you notice a friend or loved one behaving differently and feel they may be at risk of suicide there are things you can do to help:

1) ASK THE QUESTION - Ask them directly “Are you having thoughts about suicide?” (and be prepared for the answer to be yes)
*****
2) LISTEN – Sometimes we worry we don’t know what to say, however, the most important thing to do is listen without judgement or criticism. You don’t need to have the answers. Listening and giving your time to someone can mean the world to someone struggling.
*****
3) HELP THEM GET HELP – Make sure they’re safe for now and ask them who else to involve so they’re supported.
*****
4) CHECK-IN WITH THEM – Life can get B.U.S.Y. so it may be an idea to set a reminder to follow up. Tell them you’ve been thinking of them and wanted to see how they’ve been going.
*****
5) ARE YOU OK? – hearing news that someone we care for isn’t ok can affect our own feelings. Ensure you take some time for your own self-care.
***** If you, or anyone you know, needs support, please connect with us. We are here for you all day and all night on 13 11 14. You are not alone.

Do you have a loved one battling Anxiety or Depression? Or maybe they’re having a really shitty time where they seem super lost or just not themselves? ⁣

**SAVE THIS POST**⁣

From someone who has had many many many fucking shitty times 👆🏼all of the above, I thought it would help for me to share some things that really helped me. I know one of the hardest things about going through these times, was not being able to communicate what I needed - because, to be honest, when we are going through these times, we have NO FUCKING IDEA what we need😩 It sometimes makes us worse when we can see our loved ones/friends/family trying so hard to help, because they too just don’t know what to do, and then we spiral into a deeper hole thinking things like;⁣

😢 “I’m so shit, I can’t even tell them what’s wrong, why can’t I just tell them, I’m useless 😭”⁣

😢 “They are definitely going to reject me/leave me now, because I probably come across ungrateful, even though I’m so grateful, I just don’t know how to say how I’m feeling.”⁣

😢 “I get so tired trying to pretend I’m “happy”, I’m “getting better”, but I just feel worse, it’s easier to pretend, than to try and explain😭”⁣

So below are some idea’s/tips that may help your loved one who is going through a hard time😔.⁣

💙 Just a note left at the front door, letting them know you are there: “I just want you to know that I am always here for you, even if I don’t fully understand what you’re going through, I will do what it takes to support you through this time. You mean the world to me, and I am right by your side, we will get through this together”⁣

💙 Think about all the things they used to love, maybe make up a personalised pack that will put a smile on their face, just a “thinking of you” pack. Make it really personal, and Fun, and thoughtful. Shoot me a DM if you want some idea’s.⁣

💙 Drop a meal at the front door and send a text to let them know it’s there. ⁣

💙 Please don’t get offended at the lack of enthusiasm, motivation, or response. ⁣

💙 Offer to pick them up to go for a walk and coffee. Ask for their advice on everyday shit. Make it “normal”. Not a drill/therapy session. ⁣

I hope these help 🙌🏼💫😘

💙 Drop a meal at the front door and send a text to let them know it’s there. ⁣
⁣
💙 Please don’t get offended at the lack of enthusiasm, motivation, or response. ⁣
⁣
💙 Offer to pick them up to go for a walk and coffee. Ask for their advice on everyday shit. Make it “normal”. Not a drill/therapy session. ⁣

I hope these help 🙌🏼💫😘
