I have had an awesome afternoons therapy on the Goththing. Very much got lost in my work, thanks to @chemicalguys detailing Garage videos I have fine tuned my skills a little more. VSS is an awesome swirl and scratch remover. For a non taught detailer, I think I am doing ok? So relaxed now after this therapy session.

🌈welcome🌈 I’m so excited to share with you all more about my work as a therapist. As a queer woman it is deeply important to me that queer & trans folks have mental health providers that they don’t need to explain their lives to. I have seen the need in my community for us to heal from trauma and return to our bodies, and that is where my training and practice is focused. Thank you for being on this journey with me ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ #somatic #witch #trauma #lgbtq #queer #therapist #queertherapist #sensorimotor #somaticexperiencing #sextherapy #sexeducator #dykes #traumarecovery #ptsdawareness #lgbtqcommunity

“Is, is he eyeballin’ me? He’s definitely eyeballin’ me. 1,2,3,4,10....fuck this.” If need be, get that aggression out good and early...preferably in the gym or on inanimate objects that are cheap and easily replaceable. —BUDDHA On a serious note, taking five minutes as soon as you wake up to just sit in silence and think of absolutely nothing can be helpful. There are some good videos of Ray Dalio (Real Time Net Worth $18.1B-Forbes)—and others—speaking on transcendental meditation. Don’t knock it till ya try it. If all else fails....range day, definitely. Pew Pew Therapy.

HOW MANY MORE YEARS WILL YOU GIVE OVER TO THE B.S? New Years is always a time of deep reflection for me because my birthday is right after And as a sensitive spiritual woman (read: I’ve spent a lot of planet earth time playing in the ethers/higher non-physical energy planes aka LALA land lol) who’s also been thru trauma (literally the part of your brain tracking time is affected) my tendency is to avoid thinking about or paying much attention to or looking at “time” much Until I made myself Why? Not because someone told me to Or I “had to” BARF BARF BARF 🤢 I trained myself to keep ticking time front and centre as a way to make sure I get all the shit done I want to get done in this lifetime, DONE ✅ And that feels so good Good to my soul. When I know and keep remembering *in my bones* that this may be my last 24 hours on earth —AND I came here to serve a purpose, to tap business women so deeply into their purpose that there’s no time for prolonged depression or self doubt or beating themselves up because they didn’t make money again —-and there sure as hell ain’t time for them to be thinking about ending their lives because of all the trauma and BS they’ve gone through and all they want SO BAD is to make it with their business (but the BS keeps getting them ... I get it, I’ve been there...HARD) NOT ON MY DIME WILL THEY BE THINKING THAT OR GIVING THEIR LIVES OVER NOT ON MY WATCH!!! Except ....here’s the thing about Healers Coaches and Mentors like is... We can only be there for you, when you show up and do the first part for you, right???? That means ... say something to me on a live stream Message me on social media Email me on my website (GINASILVESTRI.COM) **** I have no way of connecting with you on the physical plane until you do **** That part is up to you And I get it - it’s FKN hard to pull yourself through allllll the BS, even enough to just say hello to a mentor, when you’re “in it” Let alone ask for help ... but it’s gotta be down in order to get help. Whether you reach out to me or another mentor or a therapist or a crisis help line ...it’s you who picks up the phone, Girl! And I trust (contd in comments below)

I was taking my early morning walk to the park, to feed the creatures when I passed a beautiful thing. A wrapped Christmas candle was sitting on a discarded chair and so I stopped. Pour Moi! Was this beautiful thing for me! I believed it was, and so I took it with me to the park and saw the early morning sun blasting through the sky. Graces to begin the day!!👍 . . #Christmascandles #grace #graces #gratitude #gratefulness #ptsd #ptsdawareness #earlymorningwalks #feedingbirds #feedinganimals #parks #beautifulthing #happiness

The holiday season is frequently glamorized and put on a pedestal as a time of joy and cheer. During this time of year we spend our days in a world that is adorned and curated. Christmas carols play on the radio, garlands, gifts and bobbles cover every surface and we are bombarded with imagery that conjures up joyful evenings spent celebrating with loved ones. For some folks this time of year feels magical and the decorated world matches their internal state comfortably, but for many others it is painfully incongruent. ⚡️ It can often feel like there is only room for one holiday experience. Our culture does not hold much space for folks who are not feeling gregarious, festive or joyous. It can feel challenging and painful to move through a time of year that expects emotions and energy levels that would feel disingenuous to display. Yet, very often that is what is expected. ⚡️ As therapists, we talk a lot about the importance of caring for ourselves around the holidays by setting boundaries and resting as much as possible. These are important and helpful for strategies, but I also want to acknowledge that many self care strategies might not feel manageable, especially at this time of year. ⚡️ If you feel overwhelmed, immobilized, numb, disconnected, or find yourself relying on coping mechanisms that feel less than ideal; it is understandable given the tremendous risk for triggers, re-traumatization and a general sense of dissonance at this time of year. What you are experiencing makes sense 💜 @andrea_papin_counselling

I never thought I'd be this intimate. We shy away from connection, from intimacy, from vulnerability. But I share in hope that it may wake you up to something for yourself. That means getting pretty close with people. I feel called to share what has helped, and what helps me with health, feeling good, making money, feeling fulfilled, because I don't want you to suffer like I have. I'm hoping you can learn from my mistakes and just skip the hard steps. Be prepared for when we start working together and transforming your physical, mental, and financial health. We're going places that you havent talked about with anyone. We're going to take down the walls that you've put up to keep yourself together. We're taking them down to build something better back up. Applications to start working together and make BIG changes in 2019 are almost open. Who wants in?!

It’s important to spread awareness in areas such as this. Mental health has definitely come a long way, as far as what kind of care they provide for their patients. Most of us have this image in our heads that a mental health facility, lock patients up in their room with a little tiny window to see, use excessive force, and straitjackets. This is not the case.🧠❤️🧠❤️🧠❤️🧠❤️ - Facilities that house patients with a mental illness, have various programs such as art, music, and aquatic therapy. They have activities such as movie nights, and sports. They do not do “take downs”, or use excessive and inappropriate force. That is inhumane. 🏊🏼‍♂️🤽🏽‍♀️🎶🎥🎺🎹🎹🎧🎼🎨🏋🏽‍♀️🏋🏼‍♂️🏀 - How does OT help? Well, helps with cognition, communication management, control of outbursts, how to get a patient back to work, hygiene, grooming, managing medicine, managing a household, interpersonal skills, social skills,stress management, and role development. 🧖🏾‍♀️🧖🏼‍♂️👚👕👟😡👉🏾😁 🚿🛁💊 - #occupationaltherapystudent #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #occupationaltherapyassistant #physiciansformula #therapist #psychology #brain #ptsd #ptsdawareness #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #schizophrenia #depression #anxiety

One of the hardest people I had to forgive was myself. . I have learned, that the person I have to seek for forgiveness from the most is: myself. You must love yourself. You have to forgive yourself, everyday, whenever you remember a shortcoming, a flaw, you have to tell yourself "That's just fine". You have to forgive yourself so much, until you don't even see those things anymore. Because that's what love is like. And when we forgive we release the power that unforgiveness has on us. . If you want change you gotta to be the change or you'll stay the same. . #beatanxiety #anxietycoach #lifecoach

1 week to go my lovelies. A time to spend with the people that you love. For me it is also a time of reflection after a very trying year. I have grown as a person. I have faced betrayal and hurt but I have also learnt to believe in myself and improve my mind and self worth. The journey into 2019 will be one of happiness and I will work to grow stronger and try and build myself to be a better person.

“How could you do something so violating to someone?” “Didn’t you stop to think before you acted out like that?” . When we see someone who acts out in anger, far too many times we judge and criticize them for having a lack of control. And although yes, anytime someone acts out aggressively or angrily to someone else (or themselves) it is indeed a reflection of them having a lack of control in that moment, however, it’s important to understand that there is always something more below the surface of the ‘acting out’. Truth is, shaming and judging someone for hurting will only make things worse. . Anger is a very normal and usually healthy human emotion but, speaking from my own experiences, the more you suppress the root of your anger, the more you express anger outwardly either onto yourself or others or both. . I really struggled with anger especially in my teenage years to young adulthood. As a kid I wasn’t allowed to express my anger or else I was punished and shunned so as soon as I began to break free from the control of my parents and suppression of my normal emotions stemming from trauma or just life in general, I started to abuse myself and others. Not because I wanted to but because I had that much pain and fear bottled up and constantly in flight - or - fight mode seeing as I had untreated PTSD. Was I in the right? No, and of course I had a hard time forgiving myself + had some major consequences but that’s a whole other topic... . Don’t suppress your anger or any emotions for that matter. There is always something more below the surface as to why you feel and think the way you do. Take the necessary time to reflect on it, talk to someone you can trust and who won’t judge you- allow yourself to heal. Last, don’t let other people’s judgment and criticism dictate your character- there is a difference between who you are when you are acting in character versus acting out of character- you are not defined by your mistakes.

I refuse to post their “tips for the holidays”. 🙄 Ladies, put your keys in your pockets, if you don’t have pockets (pink tax), hook them to your belt loops or place them under the front strap of your bra. Keep both hands ready for draw. Move shirt from obstruction and draw for me takes two hands, I can get it done with one, but if I have a choice, I use two. Ain’t no way anyone is getting close enough to me to be able to stab them with my keys. I prefer to make eye contact with everyone around me as I’m leaving an establishment to enter a parking lot. I make eye contact with those walking toward me and if someone is close behind me, I will cross and make sure they see me look behind me to allow them in front of me. Good luck with your knives, kitty keychains and mace, may the force be with you. #gunsofinstagram #momlife #guns #girlswhobuildguns #ididntchoosethethuglife #thuglifechoseme #ar15 #glock #gunsallowed #shootlikeagirl #womenwhocarry #gunsdaily #buyerlife #556nato #AK47 #9mm #serioustriggerpuller #secondamendment #2ndamendment #ptsdawareness #2a #pewpewlife #thugwife #igmilitia #gunfanatics #guns #pewpew #crazyfurniturelady #ibuildshit #remodel

It is a new day, and rather than letting myself go into panic mode and accomplish nothing, I’m going to jump in the shower, make a to do list, which will be far too long, and check off things as they are accomplished. That is the best one can do. If Christmas arrives and it isn’t done, then it wasn’t meant to get done—-at least that’s what I’m telling myself! #smallbusiness #healthbeauty #essentialoils #allnatural #weightedblanket #custommade #autism #adhd #anxietysucks #bipolar #insomnia #invisibleillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #ocd #pws #ptsdawareness #aromatherapy #essentialoilswork #allnaturalskincare #healthyskin #naturalbeauty #bodybutter #sugarscrub #loveyourskin #takecareofyourself #feelgood www.wrappedinahug.com

When we are hurting we make so many decisions based on our pain, rather than on the reality of our situation. Pain can blur our vision and distort the truth in front of us. We may overreact to simple things and explode over situations that are small, inconsequential things. These behaviors push people away from us because no one wants to experience those dramatic outbursts all the time-it’s exhausting. Then we wonder why people leave us and don’t want to be in our presence. On the flip side, we tolerate treatment from people we care about that is so hurtful and disrespectful. We allow people to use us, manipulate us, and deep inside we know that we should walk away—but we don’t. This is what unhealed pain does. It prevents us from seeing the truth in ourselves and others. Healing can allow you to see clearly and adjust accordingly. ❤️ #trustgod #youhavesuchaprettyface #weightlossmotivation #weightlossinspiration #losingweightfeelinggreat #losingweight #losinginches #obesetobeast #flabtofab #effyourbeautystandards #vsgcommunity #rny #ptsd #fattofitjourney #extremeweightloss #ptsdawareness #wlstransformation #wlstories #abusesurvivor #healingfromabuse #biggestloser #yougogirl #yougotthis #onmyway #sidebyside #authors #plasticsurgery #selfpublished #iamenough

Repost @makedaisychains • • • • • CN: survivor talk. Nothing graphic. Another in my #boringselfcare sex series. A number of people asked about making something on being a survivor. Lots of people struggle after trauma has happened, sometimes because they enjoy sex, sometimes because they try and have flashbacks or intrusive thoughts, some have more sex than before, others none, some go for years without sex and others have sex everyday. Some people change their taste in porn too and sexual fantasies. There needs to be a space somewhere where it’s safe to talk about this. But here I’m just touching on it to let you all know that I know it’s important enough to make an illustration. . . [image description: hand drawn illustration of two hands holding a large daisy. The hands have black skin with white patches as the person has vitiligo. The background is duck egg blue. Above it says “it’s ok to want sex after trauma” and below it says “it’s also common to struggle”. The border is circular and lilac. ] #metoo #survivor #vitiligo #illustration • • • • • #trauma #complextrauma #ptsd #ptsdawareness #complexptsd #cptsd #abuse #domesticabuse #domesticviolence #violence #sexualabuse #sexualviolence #sexualassault #rape #childabuse #childsexualabuse #developmentaltrauma #ritualabuse #sex #sexuality #sexaftertrauma #complexities

👁🐲👁FOLLOW @suitestpee 👈👈👈⚡️⚡️⚡️ #35 #1111 ➰➰➰➰➰➰ • • • 🌟WORDS BY @matthewlicata ⤵️ ✨✨✨ From the perspective of exhaustion and confusion, it is intelligent to seek relief from the uncertainty, and to replace the groundlessness with something more stable. Honor the call to safe passage and something to hold onto. You need not pathologize the longing for solid ground from which to take your next step. It is an act of kindness to care for yourself in whatever ways you are able. 🌞 From the perspective of raw, reorganizing love, groundlessness and aliveness are one. For there is no intimacy without relentless embodiment to your vulnerability in all its forms. Here, there is nothing to hold onto, nothing to “heal,” and nothing to transform. The urgent requirement for an “improved” moment has fallen away into the vastness. 🌞 While the mind may spin trying to resolve this mystery, the conundrum is holy and has been placed inside you as the activity of primordial creativity. The relief and the rest you are longing for will never be found within the field of conceptual resolution, but only in fiery embodiment to the contradictions as they appear. 🌞 Though the activity of love is infinitely tender and holding, in its essence it is everything. At times it will employ the energy of deflation, to end one world so that another may begin. This deflation is non-ordinary and is sacred, and is a secret doorway that you can enter. ✨ @matthewlicata ↔️ #mattlicata ▪️▪️▪️ ➰➰➰ #selfcareissacred #sagittariusseason #ascension #darknightofthesoul #theonenesssolution

After being marinated by a master sociopath and his flying monkeys all her life, detaching is her only salvation. She's learned that completely preserving her own wellbeing is her birthright. She doesn't owe the people that birthed her. She owes no one except her true Father God and Her savior Jesus Christ. She's righteous in His eyes and He would never play with her emotions or play her against other members. She is understanding of the brainwashed individuals in the sickness of that world she's been born in.

When I saw this shirt by @apemanstrong and read the meaning behind it, I knew it was meant for me. Not only do I carry the external scars of PTSD and years of self-harm, I carry the internal scars from 18 years of living with Fibromyalgia, depression, and anxiety. Despite myself and every effort I have made to give up, I am still here. - - My sleeve tattoo reminds me of the promise I made to myself that I will find another outlet other than self-harm. - - The more than 12 pills I take in a day, help me manage my chronic pain. - - The time I put in pushing myself in my gym, remind me that I am alive and I have to keep fighting. - - Some of us keep going because we have no other choice. We have been made so strong by trials and tribulations, that we cannot give up. I am proud of every single scar I have, I earned them. Everyday I fight my biggest foe, myself, and am stronger because of it. - - “Out of suffering have emerged the strongest of souls” - Khalil Gibran

WHEN KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!!!! #Repost @essencesas with @get_repost ・・・ This memory came up today. It's been work to arrive at this place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Why? Perhaps, in part, cuz cortisol. Cortisol is the stress hormone released. In most people, once the realization of safety is clear the cortisol returns to normal levels. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In studies, it's been shown that cortisol is released long term in trauma victims. The smallest stresses can feel Huge to us. Did you know that the trauma of sexual violence is one of the highest? Even higher than PTSD caused by being a soldier in war. Cray, right? And no one mentions the other F the in Fight or Flight cortisol causes- Freeze. FREEZE. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Giving YOU dirty looks "why didn't you fight back" ignoramuses* ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Think of it this way, survivors of sexual violence often go through Double Victimization when they report. This ads to the already high levels of lasting cortisol release if trauma isn't resolved. Victim blaming & shame cause people to NOT seek help in order to resolve it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *Side Eye to all of you "Why dint they just report", dingleberries* ALL y'all should read the link I put in the comments. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Know what high cortisol levels affect? Here's a PARTIAL list: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Anxiety -Depression⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Digestive problems⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Headaches⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Heart disease⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Sleep problems⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Weight gain⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Memory and concentration impairment 👆 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, even though it takes time, consistency & commitment, it is important to find tools to help you move forward unencumbered. This is why I want to show survivors ways to go from shame to brazen self acceptance. We can work to release ourselves from what stops us from trying, starting & completing new things. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The work may not be easy but GOOD GRACIOUS it is worth it! I swear, I set myself up for success so I'm not stopped by the fear I still feel. Decide, commit, be consistent, complete. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #zeroFzone #STRIPShift #nerdyaboutbrainfunction #TheFearlessnessMyth #commit #consistencyiskey #worksmartnothard #sexualviolence #ptsdawareness #cortisolcontrol

Transformation Tuesday. 13 months ago these scales read 21. 4. In fact I would have struggled to look straight down. Those ankles were three times as big too. No extreme diet, no gym memberships, no surgery, no expensive diet plans, no home delivered diet food, no weekly visits to a diet group. Simply #eatingclean a balanced diet and regular walking as my exercise. Plus the support of my family and #positivementalattitude Not only did I drop my weight I reversed a Type 2 diabetes diagnosis. I improved my fitness and as a result refound my love of the outdoors. It's also had a positive effect on my mental health. #walkingforfitness #beatdiabetes #mentalhealthawareness #ptsdawareness #ptsd #natureistherapy #natureastherapy #nature #walking #camping #wildplaces #naturalhealing #mindfulness

Why is it that the weather can either tip the moodcup up or down? Had been looking forward to go out this weekend with my son doing / learning the #bushcraft skills, but a snap in my lower back set a stopper in those plans😢 sitting here yearning to get outside, and here the weather just tips down. #ptsd Sound of with your thoughts! #outside #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery

Badass Warrior! 🤟🏼 People told me I am restricted and limited now a wheelchair is my mobility. Society showed me that not everything was accessible for the wheels and disability. I was a skater girl who sold her boards the day she was told she would not walk. I am a BADASS WARRIOR. I ride wheelchair freestyle at skateparks. I am applying for university. I am doing trauma therapy. I go to the most inaccessible places and make it my accessible 👌🏼 • thank you so much for reminding me of my strengths and not to be ashamed of my inabilities @selfloveclubb 💛 [image description: Lucia in her skate wheelchair flipped over showing the foot plate with a sticker “Badass Warrior”]

Apparently the names and labels given to mental health difficulties such as "depression" are what alienates people from black & minority backgrounds from engaging in "therapy". Many can't connect with the labels or they carry a meaning that is tied with stigma. Do you agree? We wonder... If we could change the word "depression" or "therapy", what could we change it to? . . . #breakingmadteam #blackmentalhealth #blackmindsmatter #mentalhealth #psychotherapy #psychology #breakingstigma #mentalhealthawareness #melanin #blackmenmentalhealth #mentalhealthdaily #depression #anxiety #trauma #stress #depressiveepisodes #anxietyawareness #worryless #youngblackminds #ocdawareness #ptsdawareness #africanpsychology #africanhealth #blackhealthmatters #blackhealth #blackwomenhealth #blackwomenmentalhealth

Gamer girls have real life issues too So tonight has definitely been a rough night. One of the reasons I spend so much time trying to make everyone #smile and spread #GoodVibes around it's because I've spent a lot of my life feeling alone depressed and just falling into a very dark place and i just want to make as many people as smile and laugh and be happy... Im a dork ok guys but ive also got my issues and im not scared to speak out about it. Talking about mental health is very important. I had a horrible incident happened to me this summer working. Right after everything happened #Mikeshinoda 's music came out and it saved my life again. Long story....I'm also a big fan of #MachineGunKelly recently. The song grabs my heart. But dear god i cant believe Chester is gone. Linkin park saved my life as a child as a teen as a grown woman... @paparoach gave me a like and it was so amazing...but what touched my heart the most is i had no idea the lead sing of papa roach had so much in common with Chester... I had no idea he had been in that dark place too... Ive been feeling like giving up and Chester may not be here but hes living on in so many ways... #chesterbennington i will never get to meet you but the world sure does have a funny way of reminding me to keep going... I tear up when i hear Chester but i can't live without his music...i just cant Thank you again papa roach for showing this small town girl some love It saved my life And thank you all for all the amazing music! @MikeShinoda @linkinpark #gamergirl #ptsdawareness #ptsd #anxiety #dreamsintonightmares #dontgiveup #darkandtwisty #tabby8names #sexylady #mgk #home #whereismyhome #chesterbennington #linkinpark #musicvideo #model #alternativegirl #altmodel #imabeast #gothicgirl

I almost didn't post this, it is such a raw part of me, but is also a big part of me. I wrote this earlier tonight while I was in the deepest part of a PTSD/anxiety/depression attack. My man, poor guy, was helpless to help me. I could see it in his eyes and body language but I couldn't express what I needed. I wrote this to try to get out what I was feeling in hopes it would help ease the attack faster. It did. No, I never attempted to harm myself during this attack but my mind was trying to trick me into going there. I'm thankful I know better and have tools to get through it. I have decided to share this in hopes others who are going through this can see they are not alone, it will be ok, and there are ways out of the darkness. So here it is: ~ I am Trinittie and I have depression, PTSD, anxiety, and flashbacks. When it hits I feel like I am drowning. ~ This is my depression: Mood swings Crying Uncontrollable anger Fear Stress I hate myself I don't want to be here I can't be around people I don't want to be alone I feel unworthy, stupid, ugly, incompetent, unlovable I think no one likes me I have no friends Everyone hates me No one likes me No one loves me I can't do anything right I can't do this anymore. ~ This is my mind in the throws of an episode. This is me in this very moment. But I also know logically NON of the above is true. It's just my disease trying to trick me. I know logically this will pass. But right now......this is me. Drowning.

. TWENTY EIGHTEEN put this vessel through hell ... . It has one less organ. Unintentionally lost 15kg in 3 weeks, taking 10mths to regain 9kg. It's in a state of amenorrhea and hair still washes out by the fistful. It graces stretchmarks branded in early teens and this chest has had pneumonia more times than fingers and toes. . The number on the scales received greater focus than medical attention as to why my mind wasn't co-operating with my body. Some stress eat, I stress non-eat. My body and mind don't get along when it's on the edge of a cliff. . This body is not a "real" body, there is no such thing! Every body is real. This is my body. This is a woman. This is body positivity.

. Answer: Suicide Question: What's leading cause of death in Australia between those aged 18-44? . 💛 Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. September is National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month 💛 . It's not feeling sad. It's drowning you're not sure if you want to swim. It's the accumulation of crap, the perfect storm of fuckery where light doesn't exist at the end of darkness. A way out for when the pain of living is just too heavy. It takes a certain internal strength and paramount external support to get the right kind of help. On this day, and everyday, suicide prevention and awareness in the form of education is imperative. . Where does education go so wrong? 💛 @grantdenyer "finally reveals": "I felt like I had nothing to live for" Hint: Swap finally for bravely 💛 @jay.may.ray "broken her silence after pulling out of 2018 tv week logie awards" Hint: 2 days isn't silence. Swap: Jessica Marais courageously makes her mental health a priority 💛 @anthonybourdain "smiles in last photo" Hint: Look behind the mask, seek those who hide 💛 Robin Williams "He made them laugh his whole life long" Hint: Whom made him laugh? 💛 @arianagrande blamed for suicide? Stop blaming, start supporting! 💛 Kate Spade "the night before she sounded happy" Hint: What about the days/weeks before? 💛 Spence ( @kerrieandspence @theblock ) as "a sook ... that crying guy ... " Hint: That's stigma you shits!

This woman had her shit together. She knew what she wanted and had a life plan on how to get it. One goal was to be true to her authentic self. She's a debt free globe trotter with a coffee addiction and food appreciation. She uncovers travel tips and has a diagnosis of inoperable Wanderlust. This woman will have completed post grad studies within 12 months and has worked her ass off to pay off the first degree. She was in the midst of decluttering, learning the difference of quality over quantity and enjoys her frugal findings. This woman experienced the joy and privilege of celebrating the weddings of her closest anchors and was entrusted to be a first time bridesmaid in a few months. She doesn't do relationships nor does she take fancy to one night stands. Marriage isn't anticipated though a future without children would be incomplete. Living in one of the most expensive global cities this woman has never been in rent arrears. No easy feat in Sydney, Australia. This woman has worked 11 years full time in casual roles. Her thumb count of cancellations strictly limited to amusing medical morphine anecdotes. She aspires to work in the Crown Solicitors Office Child Protection Division and establish a photography business. Yes both. In just a few weeks instead of having her shit together it would all go to shit. She broke. It's taken her over 6 months to function and moving forward @elisabethlorn not all posts will be rainbow shitting unicorns. Love it, hate it or something inbetween it this woman is trying to discover an improved version of who that woman I was.
