Triggers. We all have them! 🤷🏼‍♂️


These are the things that create a shift in our mood and behaviours that can sometimes push others away. 🙅🏻‍♀️🤦🏽‍♂️


For example, you may become triggered when receiving feedback and respond with a harsh tone or defensive body language, which can impact relationships. Knowing that this relational experience is triggering for you can actually allow you to bring about change 🧠 👍🏻😃


Gaining awareness of our triggers is key to changing our behaviours. Some triggers are hidden & deeply planted, while others are more visible. In both instances, growth & change are are possible. 🌳🌸🌿🌷

Writing on instagram can be quite therapeutic, because nobody ever reads anything I write with these pictures. It's a bit like a diary. I could confess to being a serial killing cannibal, accompanied by a picture of my cats or a new pair of shoes, and I'd get dozens of likes. Anyway: I've been suffering from mental malaise for a while now, which is quite unrelated to my earlier issues with chronic depression and anxiety disorder. In fact, my anxiety seems quite under control, I'm not constantly convinced anymore that I and everyone I care about is about to die horrifically. This, however, is due to my antidepressants, which are taking quite a toll. My memory is terrible, I have extreme difficulty focusing, my creativity has suffered, and I'm gaining weight. Not to mention the more personal physical side effects. Because of the weight gain I haven't been feeling comfortable in my body for a while now. Everyone says the extra weight is no problem (I've always been a size S or XS, now it's M), but it feels as if I'm dragging this dead weight around my waist with me, which is also frequently making me nauseous. It just isn't supposed to be there naturally. Also; while I used to travel a lot, mainly to places I have a spiritual connection with, like the Scottish Highlands and various English forests, it has now been 14 years since I left the country or had a vacation. That's the price to pay for being a full-time author. Unfortunately all this has been gnawing at my spiritual (not religious) side, which used to be very important to me. I think it might explain some things. #wellbeing #nature #greenwood #spiritual #spirituality #sidhe #notfeelingwell #depression #anxiety #anxietydisorder #coping #mentalhealth #lostboy

BELONGING
Belonging and connectedness improves mental health and learning, regardless of your life stage. Children, teens and adults need to feel that their world is a safe place where people will care about them, where their needs for support, respect and friendship will be met, and where they will be able to get help to work out any problems.
A sense of belonging has been found to help protect people against mental health problems and improve their learning. In particular, teens and children who feel that they belong are happier, more relaxed and have fewer behavioural problems than others. They are also more motivated and more successful learners.

Finding "a tribe" that "gets you" gives you a sense of wellbeing, adds fun, provides social support, companionship, normalised experiences, builds self esteem and offsets loneliness. It can be quite painful to feel ostracised, different or left out. We can have more than one tribe, with different group meeting different needs. E.g., a sport team, school friends, family, people with a similarity.

So how do you find your tribe? One answer is to JOIN groups, start hobbies, interests with like minded similar others. The second is to INITIATE and build social connections - be bold and start conversations, show interest, invite or suggest activities.
From an empathy perspective, if you notice another being excluded, it can be kind to be inclusive and welcoming.

He was a healthy boy,
liked to pretend he was walking in the parks that were near his house. He sat by the window and watched it rain at dusk. Played with musical instruments in his dreams, just a healthy boy.Read forward but, was actually reading backwards. His stomach dropped when a conversation started by his mouth in the house where the parents worked long hours. Sat their and dreamt of walking in those parks outside but, the alarms would go off if he did. He was a perfectly healthy boy, in that white sweater he says he wraps so tightly. All the neighbors think so too and I can’t wait to tell him again on my next visit to his room...that perfect healthy boy, I’ll miss him.
