This is a simple, yet profound reminder from today’s podcast guest @depressiontoexpression .. .. Remember that “one size doesn’t fit all.” Every human being is different. We all need different things in life— down to what we eat, what we do, and how we spend our time. .. .. Self-care and mental health looks different from person to person as well. Some need medications. Others need therapy. Some just need lifestyle changes. Many need all of the above. .. .. Thanks Scott for coming on the show! .. .. .. Y’all listening... I have a special on my Attack Anxiety Masterclass- $19.99 until the end of the month. Go to: www.attackanxietynow.com or #linkinbio to check it out.

Let this be a reminder to you that sometimes nothing is “wrong,” but you just need sleep... 💤 😴 .. .. Hope you get some downtime on this #MLKholiday Wish me luck over here. I’ll be solo parenting with my littles all day. 😬
#truth by the lovely @infertilitydrperfetto 🔥 .. .. Careful what you follow on the internet. Not all opinions are facts. And not all facts are personalized to you. Obviously not everyone is who we think they are.
I’m about 80% supportive/ validating love and 20% tough love. And in this past week’s ep with @ownitbabe I get a little more “tough love.” .. .. The truth is: we have to take responsibility at some point in time. Many of us project our insecurities into our loved ones and then expect them to be superhuman and rise above the criticism and give us unconditional love alllllll the time. .. .. Well, that’s just not realistic. No one is perfect and unconditional love and acceptance is hard for many. So, give those around you some slack and maybe spend some time looking in the mirror and doing the work. .. .. Some tangible action steps: ▪️Talk to a therapist. ▪️Join a support group. ▪️Spread the support by increasing your friend and social network. .. .. Often we damage relationships bc we only have 1-2 ppl who we are honest with. When you’re battling with really distressing feelings and thoughts, you have to open up your pool a little bit so that the highly charged emotions can “dissipate” a little. .. .. I know this is much easier said than done. Believe me, it’s taken a long time for me to get to where I’m at... and my husband and family have taken a huge toll over the years. .. .. I now acknowledge that even the best husbands are not our therapists and shouldn’t be treated as such. They have needs too and it does ya good to get outside of ourselves and think of them... and it’ll help our own sanity.
