I walk by this bear every time I go to my therapist and joke about how I don’t need it and that it’s meant for kids. Today was the day I decided I needed to make this guy my friend. It was just one of those days and maybe even a bunch of days that added to me imploding today. So, Huggable Counseling Assistant No. 3...you are now my new friend and you shall be named Gus Gus. He is so fluffy! 🐻 #gototherapy #itsgreat

This is Lindsay. She's a rad and talented therapist. Today Lindsay, along with 2 other rad and talented therapists, opened the doors of their new practice, @cultivatesandiego. 🎉 @lindsayjwilson I'm so stoked for you and for this awesome new adventure you're on! Proud of you my friend! #girlboss #myfriendsarecool #gototherapy!

I'm having one of those bad days. One of those forget everything I learned in therapy days, one of those days where I can't see past the sadness, where the volume of that ugly inner dialog turns up and up and I can't shut it down. I was cornered by a woman in a social setting over the weekend, who had apparently noticed Jon. She remarked "oh my goodness, is THAT guy with YOU?" after confirming that yes, her suspicions were correct, she proceeded to go on and on about how LUCKY I was to be with him. "Oh my goodness, he's so CUTE and well dressed and charming, you're SO LUCKY, oh my GOD, you are SO LUCKY, I'm not trying to be weird, I mean I have a boyfriend, but DAMN you are LUCKY!!" she repeated herself for emphasis, multiple times, as if I hadn't gotten the point.
I'm upset I let this bother me. I'm upset that I can't stop hearing her voice, repeating. If you're finding it difficult to understand why this affected me so much, let me further explain. Telling me that I am so incredibly fortunate to be with my partner, in the way she did, implies a couple different things; the most hurtful is that I am lucky because I am not deserving of Jon. Without any prior knowledge or understanding, based primarily on superficial observation, she made a judgment about my own worth versus that of my partner...and had the audacity to TELL ME.
She seemed friendly enough, and it's possible she didn't realize the extent of what she was actually saying. My point here, and the reason I posted this image, is that we need to be mindful and considerate of each other, now more than ever. We can't just speak without thought, we can't act without clear intention. She certainly had no way of knowing she was speaking to someone recovering from deeply painful body image issues, someone struggling with self worth, with depression. But what was her point? Was I supposed to take it as a compliment? Should I have agreed, insulting myself in the process? Instead I was polite, I smiled, and I internalized it..and I'm back to this place that I've worked hard to avoid. I will recover, sure. But why speak at all, unless it is with kindness, consideration...tenderness?

What a perfect therapy waiting room looks like 🌵🌿 #gototherapy #therapy2017

Being human is a beautifully complex journey that we don't remember choosing but are going through nevertheless. Feelings pour in and transform and leave us wondering, ecstatic, exhausted. Life is TOUGH in the most wonderful way. We need ourselves and each other to go through it. I believe we always hear ourselves better when there is someone receiving us. As I'm slowly saying goodbye to the New York chapter of my life (☹️#iwillcomeback ) I'm also saying goodbye to a wonderful person who has anchored me, grounded me and helped me hear myself. This is a goodbye and thank you to my therapist. I am more of myself thanks to her presence, and the space we created together. THANKYOU #psychodynamic #psycotherapy !#bepresentwithyourself #gototherapy

Day 79: I’ve seen a therapist on and off since I began training to become a therapist 8 years ago. At first because it was a requirement of my program, and then because it seemed like the best way to keep my own shit from getting in the way of helping my clients. I’ve had a number of therapists over the years, most of whom let me come in and chatter for 50 minutes without ever touching on much. Over the years I’ve become an expert at saying a lot without saying much at all because I am terrified of being vulnerable. And yes, I fully understand the irony in that. Vulnerability is wonderful for my clients, but something I have generally worked to avoid. Even in my own therapy. Three weeks ago (after completing a training on Brené Brown’s Rising Strong curriculum) when I saw my (incredible!) therapist we had some real talk about this, and she gently encouraged me to start doing my own work. Today I went in ready, with no make-up (lest my tears mess it up or even worse, I use it as an excuse not to cry) and a plan to be vulnerable, damn it! And you know what? I did it. I told her things I have never told anyone (!!!!) and I cried two tissues worth of tears and I survived. On the drive to work afterwards shame tried to creep in, telling me these are exactly the kinds of things I shouldn’t be sharing. And “ohmygod, what is she going to think of you now?!”. I politely told shame it could just go right ahead and f*ck off because while it’s scary as hell, I’m all kinds of ready to start practicing what I preach, and give this vulnerability thing a shot. #100daysofordinaryjoy

This is such a sad reality, but when we fail to address the pains that we have experienced in life, we hinder our ability to grow up and be mentally healthy and happy people. So address whatever is causing you to remain broken. #findatherapist #broken #adults #children #stagnated #growup #heal #gototherapy #LPCMEJ #iwincounseling #houstontherapist

Assunder

When people ask me how I am my response of late has been "tender". Tender the way a badly sprained ankle makes you move different. Tender like laying a small child in bed. Tender like last roses in the wind.

The shock of lightening spilt The Tower, split the wood. Inside, the strong heart, burns brightest, builds sturdiest. In the wake of The Tower what is left but a sudden bruise, growing more red and more ripe. Maturing with time, coming into fullness. It is almost sweet in its soft sucker punch. Three of Hearts gasp, like before the train pulls into the underground station, follows. The way you gasp in the desert to meet god, or an owl. The way you gasp in ecstasy.

I have been speaking much about grief, it's weight, and the movement through it. It occurs to me that it might sound like I'm referring to the recent grief of my divorce. And I am, in small part. But this grief is old. It is the grief of the 7 year old, and the grandmother, the daughter, the sister. All the me's wounded in love, wounding in love, seeking connection. The hungry me's, trying to make more from those kitchen cabinets than even magic can muster, scraping roots from fallow fields. Pile ingredients together, call it a meal. Learn to farm. Learn to do it well. Necessity bears ripest fruit.

This grief, the Three of Hearts that follows The Tower, doesn't just hang over my divorce. Neither does it hang over everything like a cast net. Instead it unspools like a thread, reaching back through time, and ahead through ages, wrapped around the things we called love. That is, if I can't get my Queen of Swords sharp enough first, severe the chord to weave us all some new definitions.

What god has brought together, let no one tear assunder. A sacred incantation. A manifestation of wholeness. Wholeness won by undoing, by the tearing of the curtain. It is the miracle of water from the broken rock, and bread in the desert. We are whole. We are broken. Mended by gold, glittering, grasses grow in the cracks.

The more you vocalize your emotions, the easier it gets to decipher and deconstruct them. If you don’t talk about it, you never learn how to deal with it. Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away. Instead it gets internalized, and it can manifest in wild ways...

10 years ago my mother was hospitalized for what the doctors *thought* was a heart attack. It happened the day before my sisters wedding. She was in the hospital for five days being monitored. She missed the wedding. They discovered that she had Takotsubo cardiomyopathy— Broken Heart Syndrome. It happens when a person is under extreme stress, or experiences trauma. For my mom, it was both.
◾️
The doctors explained that this condition is caused by the weakening of the left ventricle of the heart due to stress. It’s often seen with patients who have PTSD. When the doctors asked if she had experienced any trauma, she said yes— the death of her youngest sister a few years before. They asked if she’d ever talked to a therapist, she said no. Over time, the stress of that event weakened her heart, and my sisters wedding was the trigger. The doctors diagnosed her with a broken heart.
◾️
That’s an extreme example, but symptoms like addiction, depression, and isolation can be a result as well. All I’m saying is, talk about your emotions. Process your emotions. Deal with your emotions. Embrace your emotions. Feel relief. ❤️ #feels #emotions #gototherapy #talkitout #vulnerability #toxicmasculinity #mentalhealth #publichealth #brokenheart

Sometimes we take chances (sometimes we take pills): At last, all the prodding and the poking and the excavation and analysis of therapy may have finally borne fruit. 🍎 Bureaucracy willing, I am looking to re-enter the uneasy embrace of higher education again next year. 🎓 The course: psychology. The irony: near-infinite. 😂

Don't forget to check out my new blog post "Go to Therapy, America!" in which I discuss how to choose a therapist. I do NOT share the name of my therapist, because choosing a therapist is a personal decision that should be researched, not a one size fits all deal. I do like that he is like my dad's age and has army experience!

I have situational and seasonal depression, and manage it with a variety of tools at different times: patience, meditation, a strong support system, medication, exercise vitamin D, therapy...But the biggest turning point for me was to simply acknowledge this about myself. To stop fighting it, but to rather accept it as part of how I experience this intensely beautiful and varied life at times. It's so very important to de-stigmatize mental illness, and prioritize mental health in our communities. I've recently seen friendships & marriages end due to unacknowledged - and therefore untreated - mental illness, and it is truly *deeply* devastating. Today on #mentalhealthawareness day, investigate how you perpetuate negative stigmas around mental illness, and identify ways you can create more compassion & access to care in your relationships. Maybe that starts with you. To support our LGBTQ youth, follow & support the @trevorproject - they need us right now. .

Today is World Mental Health Day.

Have you ever considered the impact your environment has on your mental health? I have known since before I knew what depression or anxiety were and before I received a diagnosis that my environment played a major role in my mental health.

What do you do when you live in a trigger? What do you do when you live with a trigger? How do you move on from the damage when you still live in it? How do you move on from the damage when you still live with it?

You live in survival mode. You cope as best as you can. You escape as often as you can. You go to therapy every week. You take antidepressants when you can no longer function through your days. You take a leave of absence from grad school. You plan to get yourself as far away from the trigger as possible. You focus on getting to a place where you can move and know that you'll be able to take care of yourself. You lean on your loved ones. You remain hopeful through it all.

Hopeful for feeling calm within yourself. Hopeful for understanding that your anxious thoughts do not have to consume you. Hopeful for your own space. Hopeful for walking in the door to quiet. Hopeful for not being triggered every single day. Hopeful for peace. Hopeful for no longer searching, running, or escaping to find what you need. Hopeful for no longer being at war with yourself or your circumstances.

Today is World Mental Health Day. I am not living in survival mode. I am calm. I am not consumed by anxious thoughts. My space is quiet. I am a world away from my triggers. I feel no desire to run or escape from here. I am not at war with myself. I am not at war with my circumstances. I am here. I am at peace.

I am full of gratitude for this shift, for this necessary transition, for this calm, for this peace, for everything that led me here, for this new journey in my story.

Sometimes I feel like a student and sometimes I am a high-functioning, anthropomorphic disaster. in my 2yrs of anorexia, 1yr of recovery, and 10months of depression, I've learned so much about myself, my priorities, and my relationships. Therapy has been the most influential part of notre dame for me, and I would recommend it to anyone (whether facing mental illness or not). I also want to thank my friends and family for being so supportive and understanding. I wouldn't have survived this long if they weren't all so amazing. ☀️
