    Flashback central

    It’s amazing how once you think about one situation you’re currently in, you immediately have a million flashbacks as to what could have led to it happening… mistake after mistake. Just thinking about my abuse situation and trying to figure out myself again, it’s bringing back so much of which I never wanted to think about again.. #Anxiety #Depression #BipolarDisorder #Selfcare #Selfesteem #Selfdiscovery

    When do you feel happiest in your skin?

    Sometimes life gets chaotic and we lose sight of ourselves and what we need to make us happy. Today's reflection question encourages you to dig deep to determine what you happy without changing yourself.

    I feel happiest in my own skin when I am assisting others. I suffer from many mental health disorders and I am in school to become a psychologist. I am happiest when I am helping others become self-aware so they can better themselves and stop letting their mental health and thoughts control them. When I see others growing and thriving, it creates a sense of happiness like no other.

    How Do You...? ....... #MightyPoets

    How do you let someone kiss you
    When their lips are a nightmare reseen?

    How do you let another hold you
    When their touch makes you want to just scream?

    How do you lay down next to someone
    When you feel as rigid as a board?

    How do you let another inside
    When your heart's padlocked right to the core?

    How do you open up to someone
    When you can't put to words what you feel?

    How do you give another your life
    When your life doesn't even seem real?

    How do you ground yourself to someone
    When your need is to break free and fly?

    How do you learn to trust another
    When your walls are built up to the sky?

    How can you share this time here on earth
    When you have not a thing left to give?

    How do you turn such pain into gain
    When you're too scared to let go and live?

    How do you ease the panic inside
    When fear is a grip that won't end?

    How do you quell the heartache and pain
    When you're unsure which wound you should tend?

    How do you give your soul up to love
    When you still haven't found the right key?

    How do you attach yourself to a world
    When invisible's how you feel seen?

    How do you heal those scars of the past
    When bandaids are in short supply?

    How do you learn you're more than enough
    When tears flow nonstop through your eyes?

    How do you fix this pattern of hurt?
    Well this I so wish that I knew;
    Cause I haven't a clue to the answers we seek
    To each question that starts, "How do you…?"

    The cherry I picked today: "What you resist persists"

    I have fought myself for SO long. I fought against myself, my luck, my looks, my disease, my trauma, my sorrows, my past. I fought against my existence in this world, to match something I am not. I am all this. This face, this hair, these crooked teeth, this wrecked soul, this broken heart, these tears at night, and I am also the laughs and the hugs, all the "good mornings" and the honest smiles. I am the awe of seeing a beautiful sky, I am the tears of joy and the warmth in this heart when it feels love. I am all these things, and that's ok.

    It’s been a battle in my mind with staying present. Yesterday, I realized that my parents never asked me what my favorite colors where, celebrated me, remember any milestones, noticed when I quit basketball in 6th grade, never encouraged me to dream or asked me how my day was going . I would just bring in my straight A’s and it was noted but not celebrated. I just existed but wasn’t seen. They didn’t help me discover who I am. Just a lot of emotional neglect. So, I feel that I now need to ask myself those basic questions: what are your favorite colors? What is your favorite song? Who are you, really what do you want out of life? What interests you?Some more self discovery. #CPTSD #depressed #hopeful #childabusesurvivor #Catholic #Selfdiscovery #HealingProcess

    All actions have consequences

    I think almost everyone lives with the consequences of bad parenting. Weeks ago, I had a character breakdown. By my mom. She told me that I'm selfish and self-centered because I want to take control of my life and avoid people who hurt me. That conversation has stuck in my head and I don't think it's going to leave anytime soon.
    My parents' rocky relationship has affected me and my sis severely. I've lost my self-confidence and everytime I achieve something, I just discredit myself. I'm really trying not to but it's super hard when everyone around me is shutting me down. A lot of things has happened and a lot of times my parents have said sorry, but scars don't heal that easily.
    I just want to find myself again, the girl that used to be an aspiring light in the dark. I want her back. #Selfdiscovery

    Mental health articles.

    I've been writing articles about my mental health, pmdd, meditation, ptsd.. every part of my journey. I write about how I learned to forgive, my childhood abandonment, covid as an Agoraphobic.. I am in no way here to promote myself, I am honestly just trying to let others know they aren't alone and hopefully offer wisdom and encouragement. That's my ultimate mission. I hope they help you to know you're not alone!!!!

    If you're interested, you can find my articles at www.elephantjournal.com/author/tiffany-timm
