We were honored to be invited to the National headquarters of AARP a few months ago to be a part of their discussion of possible changes regarding their policies on cannabis. We are so happy to see our voices were heard and that they are taking steps towards embracing cannabis as a therapeutic benefit for their readers and members.
Yes. This ⬆️⬆️⬆️ All my life I have been seen as very high functioning.
The word anxiety can also be changed to depression. "High functioning depression" is really hard. You don't get help, won't be believed. I was at my drs appointment in a couple of months ago, trying to tell him how I feel. But it didn't show, my feelings were only words in my non-showing face. I have a family that I take care of everyday, but as I still do that I can't be that depressed, right? 🤦🏻♀️As I do what I have to do, as I still go to appointments, as I still get up in the morning, I can't be that depressed, right? 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️

Ich möchte mit euch über Männer sprechen. Ich möchte zu euch Männern sprechen.
Wenn wir über Dependenz, Narzissmus und toxische Beziehungen sprechen, so sind vielleicht beim Lesen der Texte schnell dazu geneigt, Frauen in der Opferrolle und Männer in der Täterrolle zu sehen. Dieses Bild ist leicht falsifiziert. Männer sind in der Tat rein statistisch weitaus häufiger kriminell und werden zu Tätern. Dennoch wäre es nicht die ganze Wahrheit die beiden Geschlechter dichotomisch in dieser Art einzuordnen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. - Männer wünschen sich Aufmerksamkeit und Zuwendung, von klein auf, genau wie Frauen. Sie werden älter und bleiben gesünder, wenn sie eine glückliche Ehe führen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Sie werden in Beziehungen ebenfalls Opfer von psychischer Gewalt durch Frauen mit einem toxischen Persönlichkeitsstil. Ihr Selbstwert leidet hierunter, Männer entwickeln häufig somatische Erkrankungen in toxischen Beziehungen (oft z.B. am Herzen) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. - Männer sind als Kind mindestens genau so häufig Opfer von psychischen und physischen Missbrauch. Sie leiden hierunter genauso wie Frauen. Sie entwickeln hieraus ungesunde Persönlichkeitsstile. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀. - Während Frauen nach Traumata in der Kindheit häufig wieder Opfer werden, werden Männer nicht selten zu Tätern. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

f you’re simply choosing to clean and organise things on your house or whatever your habit is, that’s not OCD. People with OCD would prefer to not being these behaviours, but it feels out of their control and very distressing.
Constantly rearranging items or insisting on even numbers not because they don’t like things out of order, but because they fear something horribly wrong would happen if they don’t do so.
If you’ve ever labelled yourself or a friend as OCD in passing because you love sparkly counterparts, the chances that you’ve the high anxiety, debilitating disorder.
Please refrain from using the word OCD, as synonym for clean or organised or orderly, as it diminishes the symptoms of a person suffering with OCD. It most certainly also leaves society more confused about mental health disorders. #mentalhealthstigma#mentalhealth#ocd#clean#organized # stigma #becareful#endthestigma#educateyourself#timesupstigma
Sadness is a normal human emotion that every single person will experience at stressful or somber times.The loss or absence of a loved one, divorce, loss of job or income, financial trouble, or issues at home can all affect mood in a negative way.Sadness usually passes with time. If it does not pass, or if the person becomes unable to resume normal function, this could be a sign of depression.
Depression is a mental disorder that has an overpowering effect on many parts of a person's life. It can occur in people of any gender or age and alters behaviors and attitudes.
In severe cases, the person may think about or attempt suicide. They may no longer feel like spending time with family or friends and might stop pursuing their hobbies or feel unable to attend work or school.If these feelings of doubt last longer than 2 weeks, a healthcare professional may diagnose the person with major depressive disorder (MDD).
Depressed is not synonymous with being sad or low, please refrain from using at one. As it diminishes the symptoms of a clinically depressed individual. It most certainly only leaves society more confused about mental health disorders. #mentalhelathstigma#menthalhelath#depression#sadness#low#stigma#becareful#endthestigma#educateyourself#psychologyfacts#timesupstigma

I haven’t been that great lately, or good. I’ve been struggling, for many reasons. One of the biggest ones I’m facing right now is acceptance of where I am right now. I’m finding I’m faced with so many blocks, and barriers which all are coming from within. All this exhausting mental chatter.
I’ve been so focused on what ‘everyone else is doing’ and what ‘everyone else may or may not be thinking about me’. I feel this intense feeling and fear that I’m being judged and criticised by everyone, while I’m also judging & criticising myself. .
My mental health has been extremely rocky for the past year. And right now because of my mental health I’m being forced to do ‘nothing’, aka not work. I’m not unwell enough that I need to be in psychiatric care like last year, I just need to rest & relax. And I’m finding that really challenging.
I’ve had thoughts like “I’m not contributing to society”, “I’m so lazy”, “I need to be busy”, “I can’t be a doll bludger’. .
This is slowly starting to fade away though, as I’m slowly coming to acceptance & peace with where I am, and what I need right now. I’ve been doing a lot of really amazing work with my hypnotherapist @kellyvanyaiselfworthstrategist . She’s been helping me to move through my blocks, and limiting beliefs. .
Right now, I’m unravelling and changing many beliefs, I’m unlearning, and learning new ways.
My job right now is focusing on myself and my mental health, each day looks different. Some days are filled with appointments from psychiatrist, GP, psychologist, hypnotherapist and spiritual healings. Others, I write poetry, sing songs, and paint. Every day, I’ve been meditating twice a day, and making sure I get outside for a walk on the beach- that’s a non-negotiable. .
I did write a ‘way too long post for Instagram’ earlier about what has happened this year that’s affected me so much. But I’ll condense it and share another time.
I hope that in me sharing some of my experience and humanness, you embrace and accept your own humanness and individuality in navigating life too 💛🌈

morning habits to get you started for the day🌸
it’s kinda ironic, because I’m posting this before I head to bed..at 4:30am.. but I definitely need to start my days earlier for at least most days of the week, and I need to pick up these habits so I don’t miss all my morning classes and wake up halfway through the day and mess up my sleep schedule more than it’s already messed up. One thing at a time though, the first step is waking up (and getting out of bed) before noon unless it’s the weekend, so the goal is 9-10am at least, depending on my class schedule that day.
I also like pina colada....... Getting caught in the rain doesn’t have to be a bad thing. Mr Me says that there’s no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing. I got it half right today, from the waist down, absolutely soaked. Even my trainers were squelching. But, you know what, it was exhilarating and funny and I got some bonus exercise by running to find shelter. Always a silver lining.
Moving ahead in life, we face so many highs so many lows, twists, turns, twirls, transitions and so much more but one should never forget how grateful life has been to them.
Many a times, I get this thought and many of us might as well that ‘life’s so unfair’ but who says life’s fair?
You have to face it, you have to go through it, you need to prepare and then practice.
I’m so grateful for everyone over here, all the beautiful accounts, beautiful pages, beautiful lessons. It’s such a learning experience each day, I get to know new things from all the wonderful people out here and also get to know what the ‘other-side of this thing’ might be.
I’m so thankful to each of y’all for their work, for their healing and for spreading positivity.
Thank you once again you beautiful people.

"It’s always a good time to check in with yourself and your friends"
#nobadvibes Try not to engage with negative people too much. They will take away your energy, energy you spend more wisely. 👯
--- #nobadvibes Probeer niet teveel met negatieve mensen om te gaan. Ze nemen je energie weg, energie die je verstandiger kan besteden. 👯
Dad always taught me the importance of not giving up on the field. 💪🏾My childhood rugby captain @kieranread08 always inspired our forward pack to remain resilient in our half-time talks. 🏉 But as puberty dawned our words became more sparse and at 13, I became the man encouraging my hero to forget about the mahi (work) and to start focusing on his hauora (health). 👨👦Every minute, somewhere in the world, a man dies by suicide. That's 80 fathers, sons, husbands, brothers and mates for every 80-minute game of the Rugby World Cup. 🏉 We must inspire the men in our lives to be men of more words every day; because our voices will be the Movember generation which reduces the global rate of male suicide by 25% in 2030. 💪🏾 #ManofMoreWords#RugbyWorldCup#Movember

I started my 52-week journey 6 weeks ago. My goal is to be a calmer, as well as more present, engaged, and energized person by the end of it. (You can see the different mind-body goals in the highlights)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, how’s it going? Well…⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have not looked at my phone while walking, in the car, or getting ready in the morning. It has not been easy… ok fine, it has actually been physically painful to sit when I am used to sprinting, to do nothing when I am used to juggling 201 things at the same time - to feel “I am wasting time” when I could be doing 201 things in that moment and “getting them out of the way.” I feel nauseous with the energy that is so used to moving and that is now sitting still.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) Productivity is a good thing, why shouldn’t you embrace it to the max?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Because most of us are no longer in control of our productivity. We are obsessed with it and compulsive about it = addiction. I want to be in control of my productivity, not for my productivity to be in control of me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) Why not get things out of the way immediately so you have more time with kids when you see them?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Time and energy are not the same thing. When I am running 200 mph and then sit in front of my kids, my brain doesn’t automatically slow down. It is still running and doing and thinking - it is definitely not centered and focused on those kids! Practicing the habit of being still throughout the day and rebooting my brain every few hours has allowed me to be steadier at home. I have found myself knowing how to be present (I can’t believe how far and forgotten a state that had become for me).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I now see myself fighting for my calmness…if someone angers me or upsets me I literally say “nooo way, you are not going to take my calmness’ and I get on with my day feeling in control… (there are other times, not nearly as many as before when I totally lose my lid! but hey, it’s still progress)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“What will people say?” the four words that infuriated me, even as a young child.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would ask my mom “Who are these people that we are living our lives for?” (Needless to say, that didn’t go over very well).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And no matter what I did, people said stuff anyway - so I figured that I might as well live my life by being true to myself and give them something interesting to talk about.
Back then, in my adolescent self-centeredness, I did many things without thinking about who else would be impacted by my actions. I didn’t know that you could be good, kind and true to your values and still hurt so many people. This is when I learned that culture and religion often don’t see eye to eye.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But, I did those things because I have always felt intensely, and so, listening to my heart was never a luxury or an option. I wasn’t trying to be authentic, courageous, hurtful or rebellious - I was just living life in a way that felt true to me (and ‘those people’ definitely did not approve!). It’s that way of doing things that lead me to be the person I am today. I got it right sometimes, I got it wrong many times - but I lived my truth all the time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, I will pass on a different message to my children.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will tell my children:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Not to listen to ‘what people will say’ and, if my fears get the best of me, to not even listen to me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Please make lots of mistakes and always learn from them this is called experience.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Try things and get them wrong.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Decide one thing and then feel free to change your mind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- Never chase anything but your life’s longing - not money, nor happiness..nothing but your life’s longing. -Listen to your Self. Know your Self. Stay connected to that part of you. It will be your guide.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
- And, trust. Go where your heart takes you - it really does know the way.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #listentoyourheart ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It’s time for some real talk, y’all ⚠️
As a society we spend a ridiculous amount of time teaching girls to be nice
The reality is that women are expected to use far more finesse in our every day social interactions and kneecap just about everything we say—and we start teaching that from a very young age
And here’s the thing—how to be a kind human being is an unspeakably important thing to teach our children. Being respectful of others, being mindful of our interpersonal impact, and doing small acts of kindness go a long way
But let me be clear. Being kind should never come at the expense of our personal boundaries 🙅🏼♀️
Research has shown that when little girls stand up for themselves and assert their needs or say no they get labeled as “bossy” or as teenagers, “bitchy.” When boys do the same we call them “brave” and “strong.”
It is because of this that women are more likely to get put in the role of receptionist than of CEO. It is because of this that generations of women have stayed silent when bad things happened to them.
So instead let’s teach girls that being kind is important, but it is never worth losing your voice (sidenote: anyone else remember how Ariel in The Little Mermaid literally GAVE her voice away in exchange for a dude? 🤦🏼♀️🧜🏼♀️🐚 if that’s not symbolism IDK what is, amirite?)
Let’s teach girls to stand up for themselves, to articulate their needs clearly, and to stand their ground.
Let’s teach girls that being called a bitch can be a badge of honor if it’s because you stood up for yourself and made your voice heard 👊🏼
Let’s teach girls that having a voice is way cooler than being nice.
Mental health treatment is so much more complicated than "just take a deep breath". That's only one of many steps and not every method works for everyone. Some have specific methods, some have a combination of methods. Everyone's journey is unique and needs treatment that feeds specifically to their needs💗
My mom sent me this earlier this morning and I thought I'd share💛It's hard to let go at times and recognize when something is not good for you. For me personally, it takes a LONG time. At the same time though, you aren't taking care of yourself at all when you stay in situations that aren't good for you. Learn to let go😸
Some tips on what to do if your friend is suicidal!
Also a reminder to not use what they're struggling with as an adjective. With anything mental health or disability related, it is a part of them but does not define them. For example, changing your language from "my bipolar friend" to "my friend who has bipolar" already has a different tone.
