Therapy has honestly helped me gain my old self back. Before I started therapy, it was like I was constantly mad at the world and depressed over my body. Honestly, if I never went, I wouldn’t be where I am today. I don’t mean suicidal, I just had feelings of suicide and self hatred/self harm that eventually got better by simply talking to my therapist about it. Maybe my problems weren’t as severe, but they definitely took a really bad toll on me since I dropped down to 145lbs at 5’11.
However, I really made this post to talk about yoga and how much it’s helped me. I feel more energetic, confident in my ability to do things, and don’t stress as much over little insignificant things, particularly my body. I don’t say things like: “I just ate a candy bar, eeks! I better go and do a shit ton of cardio” NO. Instead, yoga has helped me stick to a better diet believe it or not. I have little to no urge now to eat sweets and when I do, it’s controlled very well.
When I do get on that mat though, it feels so great to realize that I’m not being judged and it’s all about learning how to accept myself for who and what I am again.
If you’re suffering from depression and are looking for a sign to not go through with ending your life, this is it. This is the sign. We care.
If you see this on your dash, reblog it. You could save a life.
I’m just throwing it out there that if you decide to say “Oh, it’s okay that someone did that because they’re hot” I literally have no respect for you and won’t listen to anything else you say to me.
Yeah I’d say this is an important one to pass around.
