  • watching the season 3 finale of #thegoodplace last night made me think a lot about where we choose to place our hope and how we choose to heal. [really no spoilers but read at your own risk anyway].
.
at the episode’s end, Eleanor asks Janet for “the answer,” the purpose of life, and Janet tells Eleanor: more human she gets, the less anything makes sense - but that’s part of the fun of being human. making sense of this pandemonium the way you choose to, not the way someone tells you to.
.
she was talking more about love, but I was thinking about therapy (who is surprised lol). I don’t want to believe in something unless it’s correct. so, I find myself wondering if therapy is all BS because there is no conclusive research on THE thing (or combo of things) that heals. my therapist recommends what she likes (a podcaster with an episode about how Buddhist principles can help combat eating addiction?), it is NOT for me, and I get frustrated, because aren’t you supposed to KNOW THE ANSWERS?
.
but Janet, who knows everything, can’t give Eleanor the answer to the universe because the point is to find her own. so Lord knows a therapist, who has known me for 1 hour, can’t give me the answers to healing because the process only works when I find them myself. some answers are very clear across the board - reduce #ed behavior use for sure, all of us. but I’m starting to realize I need to stop taking in all the possible answers, waiting for the “rightest-sounding” one, and choose my own based on what feels right to me.
.
tomorrow I’ll tell my therapist that I don’t have a lot of interest in healing using whitewashed Buddhist principles applied to ED myths - but, that I believe in the God my family has believed in for all of our history, and I would like to explore how that belief can help me. and the iterative process will continue many more times. and that’s awesome!
.
in a world where everyone has THE answer, I‘m beginning to realize that yeah, there is only one answer for me - and it’s not going to look like any answer anyone calls the ONLY one. healing and growing are vital parts of being human, and there’s no perfect way to be. so I’m gonna stop searching for one. watching the season 3 finale of #thegoodplace last night made me think a lot about where we choose to place our hope and how we choose to heal.

  • A special shoutout to @mizdaniellec who is inspiring so many to overcome their challenges. Keep up the great work! (@make_repost)
・・・
I TAKE MEDS AND I’M NOT ASHAMED.
.
Today marks six months since I began medication therapy to help me with major depression and anxiety. I take 100mg of sertraline daily, and 10mg of lorazepam for panic attacks when needed.
.
Meds have given me life, joy, happiness, and excitement back. It’s also given me back the ability to feel proper sadness, anger, and pain.
.
They helped me rediscover my passions, focus at work better, think more clearly, and made my relationship with my fiancée stronger than it’s ever been before. They helped me build friendships because I’m not as terrified to leave my house anymore.
.
They gave me a second chance at my life. They helped me face my eating disorder head on, and helped me realize I am worthy and that it is possible to love myself as I am.
.
Why am I sharing this, you may ask? Because some people still think I can control my mental illness with a ‘diet and lifestyle change’. Because some people think I should use more natural products. Because people tell me my meds are dangerous and addictive.
.
I don’t care anymore. They make me feel alive. They make me feel like I can make a difference in the world. They keep me stable. They are an important part of my self-care regime.
.
I’m done justifying my recovery. My name is Danielle, and I have major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety, and disordered eating. I use medication to help me cope, and I am not ashamed.

  • THIS 👆🏼👆🏼 grateful for this simple, especially on a week where work is crazy and time for movement is scarce ✊🏼💜. Posted @withrepost • @gratefully_nourished I have conversations with friends or coworkers frequently about exercise. It seems the norm these days is to force yourself to exercise, regardless of how you actually feel. I’ve found that to be problematic 1) because it increases your chance of injury, 2) it contributes to feelings of shame/guilt if the exercise isn’t done and 3) perpetuates the already over-exaggerated importance of the size of our body over our entire physical, mental and spiritual health. .
As with basically every nutrition recommendation ever, I’d like to add that there’s always more nuance than I can account for in a small image on instagram. If you have specific recommendations from your dietitian, doctor or therapist, please listen to them instead of me.
.
For the circle that asks “will it improve your well-being?” after you’ve expressed that you don’t actually want to exercise -- I have found that sometimes what’s best for us is not always listening to what we think we want. For example, if I’ve been inside all day and haven’t moved at all, I may not feel like moving, but some fresh air and walking may be helpful for me. On the other hand, if I genuinely don’t want to exercise and think reading a book or calling a friend will be better for my well-being, that’s probably the better option. .
There’s never a black and white answer to these things, and you know better than anyone what’s best for your body. 💥 THIS 👆🏼👆🏼 grateful for this simple, especially on a week where work is crazy and time for movement is scarce ✊🏼💜.

  • It’s funny that the green shade of the bowl makes it look like these are #zoodles but they’re actually regular noodles. Although I think veggie noodles are super cool I would have to say that nothing quite sounds as delicious as regular ole spaghetti 🍝 noodles. And meatballs just made it that much more yummy.

I have a question. How do you manage stress? What does a day look like for you and how do you know if your body has had too much? #stress #trustGod #fromfoodfearstofoodfreedom .

  • “You have every tool inside you right now to be everything you’ve ever desired to be.” ✨⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
TRUTH BOMB from my mentor and friend @thechrisdowning. 💥💣 ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
He’s constantly teaching me that I AM everything I’ve ever wanted to be. I just need to get out of my own dang way! 🙌🏼 And that is true for so many of us. 👌🏽 ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Have you ever felt like you’re on an island by yourself?! 🏝 ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
You feel lost. 🧐 ⁣⁣⁣⁣
You feel lonely. 😞⁣⁣⁣⁣
You feel completely and totally out of place, like you’re totally not meant to be where you are, like you should be somewhere, ANYWHERE else. 😣 ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Yeah, I’ve felt that way too. A few times actually. And I finally figured out WHY I was feeling that way. 💡💭⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
It was because deep down I knew there was something inside me calling me, pulling me, pushing me to something that was SO against the grain that it not only scared me, it shook me. To my core. 😳⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I ran away from it. 🤷🏻‍♀️⁣⁣⁣⁣
I pushed it away. 🙋🏻‍♀️⁣⁣⁣⁣
I ignored it. 🤦🏻‍♀️ ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Until I realized that the only reason I was feeling anxious AF was because I was trying to drown out the voice in my head that was telling me to follow my heart and take my brains with me! ♥️👣 ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
I got off that island, hopped on the first boat outta there, and started sailing towards the future I wanted. ⛵️ ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
And now, here I am. 💁🏻‍♀️⁣
⁣
I may be going AGAINST the grain but I’m definitely going WITH the current. 🌊 In the direction of my dreams! 🔮🦄 Nothing is weighing me down! 🙌🏼⁣⁣ ⁣
⁣
ANCHORS be gone! 👋🏽⚓️⁣⁣
