Your Story Matters: Sharing Progress, Challenges, and Inspiration

Your story matters. The good times and the hard times, the steps forward and the stumbles – they all weave together into the tapestry of your life. Sharing your progress, the wins big and small, gives others hope that they can achieve their own goals.

Owning your challenges honestly creates a space where others feel safe to do the same. Sharing your voice, whether loud or quiet, has the power to uplift, to educate, and to inspire change.

Don't underestimate the ripple effects your story can create – the encouragement you offer, the perspectives you shift, the spark you ignite in someone else ready to share their story too. #MentalHealth #mentalhealthmatters #ADHD #Motivation #Addiction

What Does It Mean to Hold Space for Yourself

Holding space for yourself is a way of honoring your feelings, needs, and boundaries. It means giving yourself permission to be who you are, without judgment or criticism.

It means listening to your inner voice, trusting your intuition, and following your dreams. Holding space for yourself is not selfish or indulgent; it is essential for your mental health and well-being. By holding space for yourself, you can cultivate self-love, self-compassion, and self-respect. You can also create more space for others, by being more present, empathetic, and authentic.

Overwhelmed and Lonely

What do people typically do when they feel overwhelmed and lonely? I can't get ahold of my therapist and I wish I could talk to someone I know and trust. My heart is so very sad and broken. My motivation and spirit are crushed. There is alot going on right now. I'm so very low.

😪

I use this app called Nextdoor neighbor. I downloaded it to find resources while in my situation. I got on this am and a lady said her brother killed himself last night. I’m mourning for this soul as if I knew him personally because I know what it’s like to want to die. I know the pain of feeling like death is the only way out. I know his pain! And he didn’t make it! He gave up! That breaks my heart🥺🥺🥺😪😪😪
I never give myself credit for how far I’ve come and how many times I sat a bottle of pills next to me ready to take them. Today I’m choosing to be so proud of me and everyone else who stayed alive even when their souls wanted to die! We are warriors. We are so strong and those who don’t struggle in this area have no idea!

It's OK not to be ok ....
When you know it's a struggle to get out of bed & just do daily tasks that's when you know it's creeping in again & getting bad.
Your definitely not the only .
Hopefully we can get the support from others on here & know we're not alone ♥️
