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. πŸŽ‰ @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

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

I got a balloon today at therapy. It's the little things in life. 🎈 #gototherapy #itsgoodforyou #andyougetballoonssometimes

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


Preparing for therapy. I brought a picture of me at about 3 years old, to remind my self of the little me I'm trying to help. Homework is on unmet needs and attention. Over the last 6 years of my 13 year journey to heal from all of my diseases I have come to realize how developmental trauma from childhood is the root of most physical ailments. The physical symptoms are very real an tangible but to really release them I believe you need to dig up the underlying emotional roots in combination with healthy food and moving stagnated energy in the body. I have done most of my emotional release and inner child work with the same healer for 5-6 years with on-off breaks where I have seen a regular therapist for about 20 sessions, plus a lot of other alternative treatments where emotional trauma has been the center point. It was time to leave my old healer and I have done something a bit scary... I have enrolled myself in a program for developmental trauma within the conventional psychiatric system, which I am not a big fan of in general... But you have to try it before you can dismiss it, right? Both nervous and curious about where this branch of my healing journey will take me. No one is forcing me but I do feel strong resistance to the conventional system... I know I have developmental trauma, and this program is for free within the public health care system and it looks good. So I hope this is another step to release my emotional traumas and get new tools to work with when I do inner child work at home. The first 8 sessions are auditorium lectures and the next 30 is group therapy. I can always leave if I hate it or they start throwing pills at meπŸ˜‰πŸ’— And let's remove the tabu around emotional and psychological issues. We all have them. Recognized or unrecognized, we all have themπŸ’” #imnotcrazyjusttryingtoheal #innerchildwork #emotionaltrauma #developmentaltrauma #digfortheroots #therapy #emotionalrelease #psykologi #psykoterapi #underlyingcauses #bebrave #gototherapy #unmetneeds #minime #imnotcrazy #justtryingtoheal #healyourdisease #thereisalwaysacause #digdeep #youcandoit #bodymindconnection

As my therapist tells me, don't just sit passively in your shit. Either do something or do nothing. Things do happen for a reason but sometimes you have to be that reason and do something to make a change! Finally after multiple sessions full of me talking about how stressful my job was I finally have a new position that fits my personality and temperament. I'm so happy because I leave work with emotional energy leftover to live my life. #selfcare #selfcarematters #therapy #gototherapy

Public Service Announcement: The reality of being single in Regina LOL. Tied for last place with freaking Winnipeg for cities with the best single men and #7 out of 8, only ahead of Charlottetown PEI, for best single women. Sounds like either way you're fucked Ha! Then Tinder was created and you really realize how small this city is lol. Not only is it small but there's pretty slim pickings. So when you and your girlfriend's go to the beach and your friend decides to start swiping you're pleasantly surprised to find a great catch like Stephen the Dicktician πŸ˜πŸ˜‚. I'm not saying stay in a bad relationship but if you're breaking up over dishes in the sink or laundry on the floor you better think twice because it's scary reality out there LOL. One last piece of advice, it might not be a bad thing to create an org chart when you start a relationship because I can almost guarantee if either of you has slept with 10+ people you've probably already slept with each others friends or maybe both of their best friends if you're luckyπŸ˜‚ #tindernightmares #gototherapy #makeitwork #scaryreality #tookdownbestfriends #shithappens #stilllovethiscity #yqr #dickticianforthewin #unsoliciteddickpicsfordays #bitchesbecrazytoo #alwaysmakesforagoodstory #hangintherefriends #thispostismeanttobefunny #itsasadrealityforsomany #butstillfunny

The Spider's story is one of making; diligently she weaves the world into being each morning while the sun rises and the dew collects on her thread, and each night the world crumbles under the moon's shadows.
Mandala. Impermanence. We love, we learn to trust, we build and labor for, that which will inherently leave us. But we still do it anyways.
The Spider's medicine asks us to make the exact world we want, the exact world that will best suit us. The Spider's medicine reminds us to keep our world flexible, and our willingness to adapt and rebuild ready, and to polish our fangs that give us the bravery to try again in the morning.
