7 things for when you're feeling lonely: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Try to reconnect with an old friend from “way back” – even if it’s just by facebook or text.
2. Get outside and enjoy the fresh air – and notice the beauty and the freedom you sense there.
3. Read a good book – and enjoy being inspired and imaging a life in a different kind of world.
4. Get on your bike, jog, or go to the gym – as exercise is great for improving your mood.
5. Chat to the people who serve you in the store, or at the coffee shop … or anywhere you are – it can make you feel a part of that greater world out there.
6. Listen to some music that makes you feel alive, and maybe even dance, or try to sing along to it.
7. Remind yourself it’s normal to be alone at times, and you don’t need other people to give you self esteem.

“There is no difficulty that enough love will not conquer….
No door that enough love will not open
No gulf that enough love will not bridge,
No wall that enough love will not throw down….
It makes no difference how deeply seated may be the trouble,
How great the mistake,
Sufficient realization of love will resolve it all.
If only you could love enough,
You would be the happiest and most powerful being in the universe.”
– Emmet Fox 🌸

Love yourself enough to take the actions required for your happiness. Enough to cut yourself free from the drama-filled past. Enough to set a high standard for relationships. Enough to feed your body and your mind in a healthy manner. Enough to forgive yourself. Enough to move on.

To the person in my art class last year who mimed a method of self-harm, not knowing that across the table I was tugging at my sleeves to make sure all my scars were covered.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the girl in my math class last year who said, “If we have another test today I am going to literally kill myself.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the people who use bipolar as an adjective, ignoring the fact that bipolar disorder is a serious illness that affects millions of people.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
To the people who use the acronym OCD like it’s a cute personality quirk, rather than a severe anxiety disorder that can affect a person’s entire life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Mental illnesses are incredibly serious, not jokes. They are a diagnosis, not descriptors. They are facts, not insults. They are something to accept, not be ashamed of. They are important, not something to belittle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
People needs to start paying attention to the words they say and the words they leave unsaid. People lives depend on it. — Gene W.

You're not imagining your body freaking out on you. You ARE having physical symptoms. Those symptoms are your body's ways of telling you that something is wrong, and just because that "something wrong" isn't physical (like cancer or a tumor or something else scary and body-changing), it doesn't NOT mean that what you have going on isn't important, valid, and in need of the help and care and love and treatment society seems to reserve only to those going through physical ailments. — harrowingwhisperer

Having anxiety isn't just feeling anxious, it's caring so much of what others think that you live in constant fear. It keeps your mind racing on small things that aren't even a big deal. It is a battle against you and your caring mind. — velllvet

Stay away from anyone that makes you feel like you’re hard to love.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stay away from people that make you work for their attention. People that accuse you of overreacting when you’re really just expressing yourself. The people who make you feel unattractive. Who make you feel guilty about everything that you say and do and people that you feel the need to apologize to, even though you didn’t do anything wrong.

Stay away from people who make you feel like it’s an effort to make time for you. An effort to text you back. An effort to listen to your stories. An effort to be around you. Stay away from anyone that makes you feel like you’re hard to love. —thoughtcatalog

"Sometimes self care is studying for that test. Sometimes it's cleaning your room. Sometimes it's having that conversation you're afraid of having, confront that person you're afraid to confront. Sometimes it's notjust wrapping yourself up in a blanket and relaxing. Sometimes instead, it’s taking action against the problem." — antipromia

Supportive friends can play an important role in the mental health recovery process. All too often, people respond negatively or dismissively when someone discloses that he/she has a mental health disorder. It is important to remember that mental health disorders are just as real as physical illnesses and that a person cannot just “snap out of it.” If you are unsure how to react when a friend tells you that he/she is struggling with a mental health disorder, it can be helpful to think about how you would react if that same friend told you that he/she had been diagnosed with a physical disorder like diabetes. You should show your support, listen to their side of the illness, ask what you can do to help, reassure your friend that you still care about them, educate yourself about mental health and support your friend's healthy behaviours. — campusmindworks
