Don’t cooperate with a downward spiral. Challenge despair. When things go wrong, don’t go with them.

It’s How We Heal

Joe Rogan and Wim Hof on Overcoming Depression, Anxiety and PTSD

I’ve always had anxiety. To calm it down, I used to get wasted or spend money trying to cover it up with something else. Seven months ago, I went sober and am learning how to listen compassionately to my inner anxious voices. What I’ve learned is that it’s always about shame or fear. What I’m learning is that I can face those fears and resolve them instead of trying to sweep them away.

The parts of myself that emerged when I was drunk were parts I loved but was scared to show. Now, I’m learning to love my whole self, all the time. I never thought I had a substance abuse problem, but recovering is transforming my life.

Love all the parts of you. They deserve it. It’s how we heal.

You Are Not Alone

Some of my family and friends have lived with the struggles that BiPolar Disorder brings. Treat this with the seriousness it deserves.

I am 24 years old and the past two years have been the hardest of my life. Two years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I was in the scariest depressive episode of my life when I had several times I came close to killing myself. If you suffer from depression, or any mental illness, you are not alone. Please seek help, I did and with a lot of hard work & support, I feel I am finally making progress with my health.

You are not weak, as I thought I was, but incredibly strong & resilient because of this. Get through this, & you won’t look back.
