⚠️ Mention of things that might trigger you ⚠️ Have you ever had that moment where...you're standing at the highest floor of your building enough to see people bout the size of the ants & houses are the size of match boxes...and you see them moving about, you see cars pass by. And then it just comes to you how small we are in this world. We're just a speck of dust in the universe. How insignificant. These people lives on their daily lives, each on their own in their tiny matchbox houses. Driving their cars to work. It goes on. No matter what. It's easy to feel detached from this perspective. And it's also easy to feel down. As i was looking down, i thought...wow ,i'm just 0.00000001% of all the things in this world and whatever i do i still fall in that small percentage. I'm really of no use in this place. I'm also easily replaceable and forgettable. So small...what does my existence mean here then. We'll all die anyway.
I used to have all these thoughts in my head, and it consumed me. Until, someone i know took his own life, and our world, our small world, and our time...stopped for a while.
I thought, the world won't stop for you, yes...but for the people around you, close to you..it will. I saw grief, sorrow, despair...and if i put that on my family, wouldn't that be a greater burden than me living nonchalantly I'm still not sure why i'm still here but i'm trying to change my mindset about things and i'm trying to exist, for me and the people close to me because i want to atleast do one thing for them before i go.

All My Love,
I think when the days start to get a little hard again, and things don’t feel quite as light, it’s important that we remember the things that feel weightless. It’s important that we remember the sound of quiet footsteps through hundred year old catherdral hallways, the way the waves feel as they crash into you with your own weight in force. That we remember mountain tops and rainstorms, and the way a waterfall kind of feels like both. I think we have to remember afternoons spent on soft skin and white linen. A perfectly made latte and the smell of old books. When it gets a little hard to look forward, it’s okay to look back sometimes. You just can’t stay there, because there’s so many more places for you to feel weightless, you just gotta get there first, kid. ❤️ #amwriting #lovewriting #poems #poemsporn #quotes #word #wordporn #words #writer #writers #writersblock #writersnetwork #writersofinstagram #writing #writinglife #writings #shortstory #blog #ramblings #writingprompt #writerscommunity #writerlife, #writtenword

It's so easy to get lost in the thoughts of BDD and the depression that comes along with it!! I feel like I'm trapped and I can't get out of the all encompassing turmoil of body dysmorphic disorder. I feel like a prisoner in my own mind.
And then nothing happens, nothing productive gets done and nothing meaningful gets said. That's the worst feeling in the world; having all of these ruminating thoughts take up my day and at the end of the day I can't say I've accomplished much except stay alive.
Some will speak up and come to my rescue and make gentle suggestions, which I already knew but could not implement and which I appreciate beyond words that they would even take the time to set me straight.
Whether it lasts a day or a year it is needed with this monster of an illness. Sometimes intervention is for the best.
So, thank you for putting me back on my path; my journey in this life. You know who you are & I can't ever thank you enough or forget you 😘

Depression is India ink running in my veins,
Soft blushes turned grey in my cheeks
Flavours are ashes in my mouth
I feel it like I feel my pulse, rapid and just below the skin
A liquid fury bites like bile in the back of my throat --
"Not again, not again, not now, not ever."
They say 'never say never' and I think this must be why:
It's easy to fall into the cavern that opens its rancid mouth to eat me alive.
The dark is my oldest companion;
Light hurts my eyes.

actual photo of me one year ago. i know a lot of people here have been struggling for much longer, but i have only been engaging in harmful disordered eating behaviors for abt a year now. it’s making me really sad tbh to think of the person i was a year ago and how differently my life could’ve gone if i didn’t go down this path. part of me thinks it was just inevitable but at the same time i really don’t know. just some sad boi hours food for thought for you guys

🔥 Exercise Reduces Depression 🙌
Check out Dr. Rhonda Patrick via her podcast @foundmyfitness for awesome actionable info to live a healthy life! 👍
Moderate to vigorous aerobic exercise improves depression by increasing transport of tryptophan into the brain which is needed for production of serotonin. ☺️ _
Chronic inflammation and stress 😥 prevent tryotophan from being turned into serotonin
Exercise increases brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) which helps with maintenance and creation of neurons and supports neuroplasticity. 🧠
BDNF production increases with moderate to intense exercise for 20 to 40 minutes with longer durations resulting in more production 🏃🏃♀️🐎 _
Endocannabinoids produced during exercise contribute to euphoric experience and best when you are at 75-80% of heart rate max 🤠
