Repost from @a_squared_cvt using @RepostRegramApp - I'm participating in an "out of the darkness" walk for suicide prevention in October and I would REALLY appreciate any fundraising help.

Tomorrow we're walking in my dad's honor in the Out of the Darkness Walk and I'm feeling so anxious. I know it'll be an emotional day for everyone and despite raising over $10,000 for suicide prevention, I selfishly wish we were never a part of this nightmare. I've been going through pictures for the memorial wall and I wish I could go back to those moments and freeze time. Seeing his smiling face is so freaking hard. I miss that monkey so so much.

Walk info and why I’m not handwriting this: . Tomorrow I’m walking 3 miles for AFSP’s annual Chicagoland Walk. Registration or donation are not required. . Location: Montrose Harbor in Uptown (Not Grant Park this year) . Time: on-site registration and donation turn-in starts at 9AM. Walk itself is 11AM to 1PM. . Parking*: 400 park parking spots as well as street parking. *5k people walking every year. . My team is A Light In The Darkness if anyone wants to join. . If anyone want to contribute to my fundraiser, link is in bio. Thank you. . . I’m in the worst phase of PMDD that it’s hard to do anything. I had a meltdown last night which I haven’t had any in a couple of months. But thanks to a year and a half of intense therapy, I got grasp of the situation faster than any other time. . I feel very indifferent and don’t feel my body again. Which is familiar sensation but never pleasant. It’s just another PMDD phase but it take takes total of 3 weeks out of my 4 weeks every month. . I’m just so tired and exhausted. It was 8PM and my choice was not to post at all or take an easier method of making it on the phone. So I went with the second one. . I’m used to feeling this way but it’s not fun or just something you get used to. But this feeling probably is the perfect time for this walk because if I can’t be nice to myself, suicidal ideation is where I’m heading. It’s just perfect in sad way. . I’m not alone and I know thousands of people I’ve never met has same cycling mood disorder. . I’ll be waking with my friends who I’m completely comfortable crying and getting upset “over nothing”. I can get through this important 4 hours of entire year. . #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthstigma #depression #depressionfeelslike #anxiety #anxietyfeelslike #piccollage #afspchicago #afsp #afspadvocacy #ootdccw #chicago #chicagoland #lazypost #pmdd #pmddwarrior #pmddawareness #pmddsupport #suicidepreventionmonth #suicidalthought #suicideide #mentalhealthtalk #realconvo @afspillinois #stopsuicide

#beheretomorrow ❤️ This is my family. Like a lot of families, we have our struggles and issues, including battles with mental illness. 9 months ago we lost my beloved nephew. Behind these smiles are a host of broken hearts who wished we could have done something, anything to help him. Now we have formed a team to help raise funds for suicide awareness and prevention in the hopes that we can help others live. Tomorrow we will be walking in the AFSP Out of the Darkness Walk for suicide prevention and awareness. Now is our chance to help others by telling our story and raising money for education and prevention resources. Will you help us #stopsuicide ? Link in bio. Any amount is sincerely appreciated. Thank you! ❤️🍔❤️ • • • 🍃💪🏻🍑 #beheretomorrow #suicideprevention #afsp #mentalhealth #struggle #hope #elevatetheconvo #realconvo #thereishope #thereishelp #youareloved #youmatter #youareworthy #youareneeded #stay #youarenotaburden #helpingothers #donate #give #getinvolved #dosomething #stopsuicide #knowthesigns #bethere #yougotthis #team5fivefit

Like most families, we have our share of struggles and issues, including the battles of mental illness. 9 months ago we lost my beloved nephew - he could no longer keep up his valiant fight against his issues.

Will you help us fight the battle by raising money for suicide prevention? We will be participating in the AFSP Out of the Darkness Walk tomorrow. Will you help us today? The time is NOW to tell our story and to let others know that there is help. There is hope. Suicide can be prevented. With education and awareness, we can provide the help so desperately needed by those who struggle. Please follow the link in bio. Any amount will make a difference! We are grateful for your support.

1 month to go — Don’t let the photo fool you. ✨ The amount of judgement I felt from staff about my choice to have an epidural — coupled with intense nerves — meant I had a complete breakdown during my hospital tour earlier today. ✨ Under the makeup, my face is covered in broken blood vessels from yet another evening spent vomiting. ✨ I’m running on about 2 hours of sleep and spent the day feeling hopelessly behind in every area of my life, as illustrated by my middle of the night realization that I hadn’t paid the water bill this month. ✨ I’ve been giving a lot of thought lately to what is shared on social media. So often it’s just half the story and scrolling through posts of everyone’s highlight reel leaves us feeling like we can never measure up. ✨ Now, I love sharing cute pictures of my dog and pumpkin picking as much as anyone else... but I’m starting to realize it’s incredibly important to sprinkle a little reality into our newsfeeds, too. For your mental health, and for mine. ✨ In case you needed the reminder today: No one’s life is as perfect as it looks on Instagram. You are enough. ✨ #BabyBirkenhauer #BabyJay #35Weeks #HyperemesisGravidarum #MentalHealthAwareness #RealConvo

Kerry / Kerri I would like to dedicate this book to my father and to those who have been strengthened by this pain God has placed in our lives. Those are the words I wrote 22 years ago. The hole you’ve seen at the end of each post represents loss and for me, it also symbolizes a bullet hole. Putting myself in e’s shoes led to empathy. Which allowed forgiveness. Then acceptance. This is a part of me. I hope you have been able to find meaning relatable to your own challenges and struggles. In person, the hugs, sharing and connections have been so moving. Thank you all for the support you’ve shown. Translating this project from the original book to a social format was a vulnerable step and an experiment in creating intrigue and awareness of this subject that so many of us are connected by. My hope is that moving forward this space can be a source of further connection and conversation. Tomorrow we will walk to bring the stigma #outofthedarkness with @afspillnois and @afspnational at Montrose Harbor. The message in today’s post will be the message we wear on our shirts. You can still join our @afspillinois #outofthedarknesswalk team as we raise awareness for suicide prevention and bring hope to those affected by suicide by walking with us, donating or both. Thank you to those who have joined us already. The link is in my bio. #forgiveness #acceptance #love #outofthedarkness #suicidelosssurvivor #sentiment #nostigma #sharestories #realconvo #realtalk #storiesmatter #afsp

Caregivers and friends of those feeling suicidal can often feel ill-prepared in supporting loved ones. @blessingmanifesting has put together some great tips on supporting friends or loved ones experiencing suicidal ideation. @connecting_ngo is an Indian suicide helpline that can be accessed if you feel you are not able to offer the support required. The app Suicide Safety Plan by Mood Tools is a great tool to help coming up with a safety plan. If you are looking out for someone feeling suicidal, remember to offer yourself some TLC (tender loving care) too. It's important as caregivers to not forget about yourself, as you cannot pour from am empty cup. #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthindia #caregiverstips #mentalhealthsupport #supportsystems #supportafriend #realconvo #reachout #punetherapy #interiorgardeningindia

I deleted all of my posts on my account, and I'm taking off the mask. It's been a month since I lasted posted, and in that time, I have had many a conviction about various sins in my life, and I want to open #realconversations about our personal walks with Jesus. Vulnerability is the biggest threat to the growth of sin in our lives. So let me restart, get real with you guys, and bring it all back to the heart of Christianity. Love you all, and please don't hesitate to message me with questions, prayer requests, or if you just need a safe space to open up! 🤙🏼❤ Hebrews 10:26-31: "If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the blood of the covenant that sanctified them, and who has insulted the Spirit of grace? For we know him who said, 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' and again, 'The Lord will judge his people.' It is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God." #thecreated #heartofworship #vulnerability #safespace #christianband #hebrews #christianfaith #realconvo #perfectlyimperfect #jesussavesbro #wearethenextgeneration #boldforjesuschrist #outofhiding #fearofthelord #wisdomquotes #scripture #biblequotes #theologymatters

#SuicidePreventionMonth 2017 was one of the most difficult years for me to date. I felt the most intense depression and anxiety, struggles with working, felt super alone/unwanted/unloved, felt like a complete and helpless burden, could see no use of my life whatsoever....2017 was the year I transitioned from “just” suicidal thoughts, to an actual attempt 😔 I wrote about it in my latest blog post (link in bio)....All of these pictures were taken that year and show a range of emotions, a lot seemingly happy! But even after happy moments i would typically sink into hopelessness. Most people didn’t know how intense the struggle was because either I stayed away or they saw the happy face. They weren’t able to sense the looming darkness within because they saw smiles or heard laughs. This is why it’s important to know that suicide doesn’t have a specific face. It’s possible to laugh and smile while internally feeling that your life is pointless. Let’s all make a point to check in those we know. Whether they look happy or sad, check on them. Take time to pay attention to behavior/attitude changes. Listen to what they are saying and how they are saying. Let people know you care and are present even if you truly don’t know what to do....a lot of times that can make all the difference 🙏🏾 #ThePurposelessWife #suicidesurvivor #suicideattemptsurvivor #suicidepreventionmonth #suicideprevention #TalkAboutIt #RealConvo #YourLifeMatters #YouMatter #MentalHealth #MentalHealthAwareness #MentalHealthAdvocate #sufferinsilence #TransparencyIsMyWeaponOfChoice #VulnerabilityIsStrength #HealingByAnyMeansNecessary

Scaredy Cat 1. His name is Worm. His owner tells me I'll understand Once I see him slither. She says he must not know What a hiss means. He runs away from me, Leaves every room I enter. Slowly, things change. He stays on the bed After I crawl into it. He smells my hand But runs from it. I tell him I understand As he hisses at me While I fill his bowl. And I do. One night, I catch him On top of the couch At 2 am, looking defeated I reach out. He doesn't run. It's the first time I touch his fur. His neck is tense, eyes sad. I tell him it's okay. I don't tell him I won't hurt him. I don't control his pain. After I stop, He looks relieved And desperate for more. I tell him I understand. And I do. Worm is a caterpillar, Afraid of the cocoon After some excited child Trapped him in a glass jar. His tail is broken in half. I tell him I don't know How to feel safe either. I slither back into bed, Hoping he'll follow me. He doesn't. I tell him I understand. And I do. 2. He jumps out of bed To avoid me. I follow him. I get on my knees. I say, "I'm not who hurt you." His mouth is open Mid hiss, he goes silent, Pierces me with his stare. I say, "I'm not the one who hurt you, But you can't forget." He blinks, Closes his mouth. His eyes are beautiful And intense and sad. I say, "I can't forget either." He walks away When I start crying. My forehead Touches the floor. We can't hold each other. We are alone In the nightmare worlds We carry around, Full of past. Full of fear. 3. His owner tells me He hisses less now. I send her a list of tips. Do not give him food Immediately after He hisses, wait Ten seconds or Until he meows. Give bits of food While touching him To pair safety with Human touch. Don’t try to do Too much at once. Let it happen slowly. And I wonder if I should make a list For future lovers. Do not hold me Immediately after I pull away, wait A few minutes or Until I say, “I’m scared.” Give compliments While touching me To pair safety With human touch. Don’t try to do Too much at once. Let it happen slowly. And if you are not ready To love a creature Who cannot forget, Do not take me into The warmth of your arms. You will only make it worse.

Love this 💕 . . . Posted @withrepost @laurajaneillustrations Some days we feel just how strong we are, but really it’s the days when we feel fragile that we are strongest. These are the days when we hold ourselves together, we fight against the pain, we hold back the tears, we move through the movements of the day, we get the jobs done, we put the smiles on our faces, we do our best to help others... all the while feeling like the only thing holding us together is the skin that wraps around our muscles and bones. NEVER underestimate how strong you are simply to keep breathing on the days when your feelings are like a weight, crushing you. NEVER underestimate how strong you are everytime you get out of bed even though you wish you could sleep the day away. NEVER beat yourself up for feeling fragile, for feeling vulnerable or for feeling ANY of your many valid feelings. You are so incredibly strong, and you are so wonderfully human; it’s perfectly ok to feel what you feel. It will pass. You will be OK. . #monday #mondaymotivation #seasonalaffectivedisorder #feelings #yourfeelingsarevalid #fragile #feelingsfragile #strength #youarestrong #dontgiveup #youwillbeok #youwillmakeitthrough #thisdayshallpass #thistooshallpass #Laurajaneillustrations #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #realconvo #realstrength

Happy Birthday to the Worlds Greatest Air Force 🇺🇸 It has been almost a year of being medically retired and I’m unfortunately not any closer to accepting that. That is my hump right now stopping me from moving forward. I’m still grieving this loss. I made it a huge part of my identity, I was going to do 20+ years and pursue becoming an officer. I had dreams for myself. And now I need to find a new one. There’s a big hole in my heart. I miss it all. It’s so weird to see both my older and younger brother continue on their careers in the Air Force, and of course my husband. I am very proud of all of them! I just wish I were still serving along side with them. I am still proud to have done my 6 1/2 years. #grieving #grief #airforcebirthday #usaf #mechanic #diesel #missingit #feellost #mentalillness #realconvo #themightysite #newlife #military

On our Friday the 13th episode of the Awakening Adventure Podcast, @heathercriswell_convosmatter and I chat about ALL the things. We start off the full moon convo with talking to the dead, then go on to discuss obesity and politics (things we never discuss in public!) Then we dive into ditching terms like "body positivity", "self-worth", "self-care" and "everyone is a mirror." 🙄 And we round it all off with staying authentic with heart-centered conversations that matter! Oh and check out the clip here where we admit we're not into women's marches, the guilt we've carried around that, and how we're now living guilt-free and empowered! Awakening Adventure is available on all major platforms, including iTunes and Google Play.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 3 high school teens or 29.9% felt sad or hopeless almost everyday for 2 or more weeks in a row in the past year. It is important to check-in with your kids before and after school to see how they are feeling. It is these conversations that can help them feel like someone cares.

This week is National Suicide Prevention Week. Check on your friends, know the warning signs, be there to listen, because you never know what someone else is going through.⠀❤️ *⠀ Did you know that suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 10 and 24? There is good news, though: suicide is preventable. ❤️❤️❤️And that's why we support @ConnorsClimb ! Their mission: To provide suicide prevention education to NH youth and the community. In fact, because of the amazing efforts led by the Connors Climb Foundation, NH schools are required by law to develop policies on suicide prevention, response, and risk assessment and to provide suicide prevention training for faculty, staff, and volunteers! Congrats!⠀ ⠀ #stickittostigma #connorsclimb #thebennyfund #stopsuicide #bethevoice #worldwithoutsuicide #suicideprevention #mentalhealth #suicidepreventionawareness #4mind4body #RealConvo #5K #familyrun #wellness #beheretomorrow #seizetheawkward #funtoeatfruit #brandedfruit #freshfruit #healthyswag #customapples #eventidea #corporateevents #eventplanners #eventplanner #eventprofs #eventfavors #fundraiserevent

You never realize how lonely you are until it's end of the day and you got a bunch of things to talk about and no one to talk to... But no matter what embrace your journey. Embrace the change. Growth doesn't come from things staying the same. You don't need to be accepted by others, you need to accept yourself. So always remember - Be you, Love you, All ways, Always ❤️. Place - Somewhere on the earth too far away from everyone yet too close to myself.

The date of the event may have changed, but our excitement certainly didn’t! ⠀⠀ The best of times, the worst of times... Life is filled with ups and downs, and sometimes they can happen simultaneously. At the same time you could be succeeding at your career, and having a child with serious sickness at home; one dream thrives, while your pray for the other to live. ⠀⠀ Do you have a story you’d like to share? DM us for details on speaking! We love hearing your stories 🤩 ⠀⠀ Date: Tuesday, October 1st Time: 8:00 pm Location: LinkAtelier @linkatelier
