MOST RECENT

Be warned, this post is a rant:

I just finished the second season of @13reasonswhy and I am pissed.

I’m not one for censorship but the second half of that last episode was extremely unnecessary.

I was getting ready to come on here and share a quote from it that I believed to be the overall message of the show. But the scene changed and I was left with the feeling of anxiety and disgust.

Truly, I’m not one to be overly sensitive to violence. As a psychotherapist, I hear a lot of really horrendous stories without feeling personally affected.

But that violent, graphic bullying scene still has me feeling like I have to throw up and with skin-tingling anxiety.

If it was triggering for me, I can’t begin to imagine how triggering this would be to people who may find themselves relating to it.

A warning before an episode isn’t enough. The bullying could have been conveyed differently and still gotten the message across.

Posting a website for where to go for help at the end of the episode isn’t enough either.

As a mental health professional who has worked on her own mental health, I am well aware of how to cope with these feelings. I know that when I’m done with this post I can do a ten minute meditation, spend some time grounding myself back into the moment by playing with my cat, and journal before bed.

But what about people who are already struggling to cope?

Clearly the show is meant to evoke emotions but seems really fucking careless to touch on and exploit issues that are real and current, ending with a passivity in posting a link.

I will circle it back around to the last beautiful message of the show before it turned to trash: “No matter how many reasons there might be ‘why,’ there are always more ‘why not’” - Mrs. Baker

When we feel that life is meaningless, it means we feel that life isn’t precious and that time is being wasted.

When we can truly connect with reality and life, then we can find fulfillment and happiness.

That connection includes suffering. Avoidance of it is what keeps us suffering. Acceptance of it moves us towards meaning.

Today I’m grateful for creating meaning out of my past suffering.


Wise words from Dr. Längle

I have the hardest time coming back from these trips.

While they leave me feeling refreshed as I return to my daily life, they also leave me in lala land.

These trips conjure up some beautiful emotion for me. I fall in love each time. And just like was stated while on a rooftop, enjoying the view of the Western Wall and Temple Mount — I fell in love in Jerusalem.

So when I return to my normal life and experience stress, I find myself daydreaming of the adventure and wonder experienced abroad.

Now to find how to incorporate that love into my daily life — to learn to live with the same adventure and curiosity in my heart while engaging in my normal life.

Because there’s no harm in looking back, if you’re still moving forward💕 ———
These past few weeks have been the hardest weeks of my life. But through all the pain, grief and heartbreak...i have found myself with a reawakened spirit.
Thanks to the overwhelming support of my family, friends and to my IG Fam for constantly checking on me and for your sweet comments and messages.
Amidst everything i have lost, I am thankful for what i still have and truly appreciate everything with a heightened feeling of gratitude. I have learned that one of the best ways to heal is to continue doing the things you love...so here i am today...with a stronger heart and a determined drive to continue making great content and to blossom in this influencer journey I’ve started.
Thanks for patiently waiting....
I love and appreciate you all🤗🙏🏻💕

Day 10:
On my drive home today, I heard one of my all-time favorite songs as I passed my favorite downtown Phoenix skyline — “Do You Realize??” By The Flaming Lips.

It’s such a special song to me and it became special after my first Existential Analysis seminar a few years ago in Vienna.

Now whenever the song pops up on the radio, it feels like a gift — a special reminder of a beautiful time.

So each time I hear it, I feel warm fuzzies inside and smile. And I’m always appreciative of those moments.

I've been struggling with this severely. I constantly feel let down by the negativity of others/situations who are currently close to me in my life and it can be really difficult to keep my head held high without relying on past obsessions and petty, deep-rooted bad habits. I like to make posts and tell people I'm leaving to move to Seattle or Portland. I dream about it all day long. Yet I feel completely bound to my family and relationship. I am stubborn and don't want to be bullhead, leaving others who I love behind in case something bad happens. I'm told I'm selfish for wanting to leave and that "nothing will change" if I do. I haven't tried to conquor anything personal for 4 years, and I'm rarely out of my comfort zone. I think fear of the unknown holds me back... But I'm always obsessed with wanting something different. So maybe leaving has just turned into a fantasy now? I really hope not because I still feel I have no future here. #thoughts #igtherapy #wanderlust #selfcare

Day 8:
Today was my first day back at work and I am very grateful for the incredible people there.

So many people asked about my trip and were so thoughtful and kind about my jet lag.

I meant to leave work early because I was basically a 🧟‍♀️ but a crisis came up and I stayed later than usual.

The therapists and management team were so helpful and it was just a really wonderful experience of true team work.

And when I left for the day, I found that my 8:30a intake was moved to someone else’s schedule so I could sleep in.

I love the support from my colleagues and couldn’t ask for a better bunch. ❤️

Day 7:
As I board my final flight back home from Israel, I struggle to find the words to describe my feelings about this trip.

I went in with little expectations, as I wasn’t particularly looking forward to the location of this seminar.

But between the unforgettable experiences with new and old friends, eye-opening and touching cultural ventures (as captured in this photo), and an emotionally fulfilling seminar on finding meaning — I believe this is the start of something new.

As Dr. Längle said, the seed has been planted. And I’m truly grateful for that. 🌱
