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?

Nothing quite completes your day like having a killer workout! #fitlife #gototherapy #healthyhabits #elementfitness

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

The act of "execution" of our dreams is a complex and courageous notion that is often interrupted by our brokenness. Healing clarifies our heart's visions and enables us to initiate the first steps of executing our dreams! #gototherapy #pdx

this morning's meditative creative exercise. I can see the value in adult coloring books, or paint by number projects...sometimes just letting go and making something sort of...mindlessly? Can be amazingly therapeutic and calming. I love woking with flowers. It feels natural and grounding to playfully arrange nature's delicate pretties into color patterns and texture groupings that please the eye and the soul. Also...marigolds + feverfew = childhood magic!! πŸ’πŸŒΉπŸŒ»πŸŒΌπŸŒ·πŸŒΏπŸ’œ #eventsbyerin #craftqueen #flowers #flowersofinstagram #marigolds #mentalhealthawareness #gototherapy #giveyourselfcredit #letstalkmentalhealth #letyourselfplay #makersgonnamake #maker #creativeexercise

When you've been doing life super well but your friend lends you his CBT pocket book on agoraphobia and panic, just in case, and you realize good people are everywhere and you are always given just what you need and even when life is falling apart it is also coming together.

Favorite line; "oh, what the heck panic! Do your worst!" And "I don't have to be 'careful' with myself."

Slowly slowly, but it's working. I'm not questioning it. Realizing certain things has taken aloooong time... Other things just clicked in a nano second. I wished I did this years ago, alas I did not. But better late than never right? When you realize you never actually walk alone & there's a whole tribe of people just the same as you & that they "get" what you're talking about. Wholly fuck.. Who would have thought........Some people are c#nts, it's not you, it's them, they definitely are just c#nts. Some people are not, stick with them. They do exist. #perfectlyimperfect #recovery #anxiety #unfuckablewith #10days #jkl #coffeeandpuppies #iswearalot #health #gototherapy #hellosundaymorning #idrankthecoolaid
