    For those who only focus on my mental illness

    ⚕️I have heard from several doctors of psychology that oftentimes, those pointing out people with mental problems are in fact the ones who may need the most help. What is the first step to overcoming addictions or mental health disorders? Step 1 in AA: "We admitted we were powerless over our addictions and compulsive behaviors, that our lives had become unmanageable." 🆘️

    🗣The Key is admitting that there is something wrong. If we constantly look for the wrongs in others, nothing will change for us. Let us not forget that Misconceptions or Stigma still exist for those who seek help.💩

    🛑As I learned in my suicide prevention training today, it is not usually the people who seek help who are ending their lives. Instead, statics reveal that those who seek help have a better survival rate.🚑

    🤕Another statistic often overlooked is that people with mental illness are more often the ones who are being harmed or abused than the other way around. A study from the University of Columbia reveals that "People with a mental health disorder have a significantly higher risk of becoming victims of violence compared to the general population (1–6)." 💥

    🏋‍♂️Just as we condition our bodies for physical exertion in sports, our minds can grow accustomed to being physically, mentally or sexually abused, especially if by those closest to us. In the absence of abuse, the person feels as if his/her life is now abnormal and attributes of kindness and compassion can feel uncomfortable.🙅

    💪This is where step 2 comes in. "We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity." We all need help to overcome whatever struggles we face in life and what greater help than the One who created us and knows each hair on our heads.

    🧠We may never know all the answers in life, but we all have something to improve on. So admit the problem and realize that not everything is in our control. We have a greater Help if we only humble ourselves enough to ask. Remember that for each act of kindness, there are two more acts of kindness and one thought has the power to overcome or be overcome.⛰️

    MTF Trans living in a transphobic country

    Hey, I’m Jude.
    I live in Saudi Arabia, lived here for my entire life and I get treated like sh*t everday by family members and my schoolmates.
    I try to act as “masculine” as possible, I have to pretend something I’m not and it’s so hard and very exhausting both mentally and physically, here in Saudi Arabia our schools are either all boys schools or all girls schools and since I’m an AMAB I have to suffer this, I’ve always felt more connected and related more to girls, when I was younger I had female friends and it was nice hanging out with them and I liked talking to them, but when I got older they said I’m no longer allowed to stay with the girls I should be playing with the other boys and I didn’t feel like I fit there but I had to do that so I won’t get bullied, I had to wear that masculine mask and to this day i’m still wearing it, I always wondered if there’s something wrong about me, and wondered how would my life turn out if I was born a girl? I thought to myself “that would be perfect”.
    As a little kid I used to play with the “girls” toys and my parents didn’t mind because I was just a “kid”. btw I was obsessed with umbrellas and I always waited for it to rain so I can use the umbrellas outside lol.
    It doesn’t rain much where I live.
    I remember in middle school I used to think a lot about my gender identity, I cross dressed I wore my sister’s dress when no one was home, I felt very happy.
    I used to feel sad because I got picked on at school and by family memebrs for acting very feminine and, I remember a teacher in elementary school laughing because my voice is very “feminine” and the way I talk is feminine.. I got bullied a lot for that in school by family members and by strangers.
    didn’t have many friends in school except some who come and go and I wouldn’t really call them “friends” because we never went out except for school stuff.
    But I have one good friend who appearantly is also a part of the LGBTQ+ community and we’re in the same class , we have similar interests and similar personalities which is amazing.
    Now thinking about all this, I don’t really know what to feel rn and I don’t know if I’m feeling anything at all.
    I don’t know if I’ll ever have the opportunity to transition.
    I ignored this for many years but watching trans people on the internet made me think all about it again.

    A friend on twitter told me about this app and It’s an amazing app.
    Sorry for the long rant just needed to pour everything here.

    #Bullying since the early age

    My elder sister was my major tormentor. She used to be part of scandals with parents and then was redirecting aggression to me, even when I was trying to compassionate and pity her.

    She got her character from our father, who is very borderline (not diagnosed though). Her anger and mood swings deteriorate our relationship still. As well as her selfishness and unwillingness to recognise damage in her behaviour (most probably she never will) and no attempts to change (not reasonable to expect, I guess).

    How would you deal with a relative like that? It hurts to loose her, though it hurts to stay in touch, she can be very venomous...

    Workplace safety #CheckInWithMe

    I came to work triggered today, I don’t feel safe at work. Not only does my grad school bully works at the same company as me, but in the same building, the same department, and the same hallway, but we share a wall. This woman has gone out of her way to twist, manipulate, and lie since day one when the bullying started. Now she wants to threaten me and my livelihood because she needs to feed better about herself. I’ve chosen not to engage in the childish games she’s playing, I’m not a child and I’m not playing into the twisted games she wants. This is what bullies do, and I won’t take part. How dare this homophobic woman turn around and say “I can report you to management and you wouldn’t have a job.” How dare she justify what she’s doing and has done with “god loves and accepts all of us that are straight.” How dare you! You do not deserve to be in a profession that helps people when you have only hurt people. #Pledge2EndBullying #Antibullying #MentalHealth #CheckInWithMe #lgbtqbullying
