"Personal recovery in mental health involves a deeply individual journey of finding meaning in life, beyond the limitations of a mental health problem (Anthony, 1993). The recovery approach moves away from professional-led care and instead empowers individuals to become experts in their own self-care; building on their strengths to re-discover an identity that is separate from illness or disability (Perkins et al. , 2012). The key concepts found to be important in personal recovery are conceptualised by the CHIME framework (Leamy et al. , 2011): connectedness, hope and optimism, identity, meaning and purpose, and empowerment." (Nurser, Rushworth, Shakespeare, Williams & Deirdre, 2018)

"I know I have a story to tell but can that story be transformative, can I move it beyond the simply therapeutic? Can I use my story to consider wider issues in mental health, to move beyond Seattle, to be political, to provoke change?" (Liggins, Kearns & Adams, 2013)

We don't always have to share the same interests and passions as the people around us. Sometimes we have no clue what they're talking about 😅😂⠀
⠀
But being able to listen to them talk about what brings them joy is a genuine act of care & support. Showing up and paying attention in good times is important for our relationships too!⠀

 #MariBicaraSejenak⁠
Tak usah risau saat kau berdiri di ujung jurang.⁠
⁠
Berpegang eratlah kepada Tuhan, sebab manusia itu lemah, kuasa manusia hanya sebatas nafsu yg dipenuhi angkara murka. Kerena itulah manusia kerap kali mengalami kebimbangan dalam menyelesaikan suatu masalah.⁠
⁠
Berpegang eratlah kepada Tuhan, bersyukurlah dan ucapkan,⁠
“Tuhan, Engkau terus bekerja di dalam diri dan kehidupanku, Engkau selalu memberikan apa yang aku butuhkan, Engkau tak pernah lelah mendengar keluhan-keluhanku, dan untuk itu aku bersyukur padaMu”⁠

Last week I was on a podcast about mental health and depression. The host asked about my techniques for being passionate, inspired, and active despite living with bipolar II. After easing into the discussion I revealed that I had, years before, been suicidal, and that my experiences since then had been a kind of triumph over that near fatal calamity.
🎪
What I've never forgotten since those first days of recovery is that the smallest progressions matter. Even the ones in your head. "You've not done your best today, but you can try again tomorrow," is leagues better than, "you are a piece of shit," when you look in the mirror.
♦️
These small habits are the world. And they take time. Lifetimes. It's not a linear progression. It's messy. It's art. But what's important to me is knowing that this is more nuanced than moving forward or backwards. It's critical to me to retain that discipline which, I believe, depression or anxiety devolves from. I don't believe thinking we need to improve is wrong. Or that disappointment in ourself is a problem. Or that shame for our failures is useless. Yet these are the kinds of self-criticisms which can become paralytic, toxic, or harmful, if not dealt with properly.
♠️
My life felt as if it began for the second time when I realized that one can derive inspiration—and a sacred kind at that—from the horrific, shocking, and macabre. Suddenly it felt the world had doubly to offer, and myself, doubly to give.
♦️
Disappointment drove me to be better. Shame, a chance to prove my past self wrong. Failure, self-loathing, and anger were the roaring fires which propelled me out of immobility. The fact that these emotions can drive one to self-harm speak to their power. And like any power, it is my sincerest belief, that they can be repurposed for the good.
♠️
Of course, it's not a matter of putting on a happy mask. Living is an integration—a violent coalescence of personality, nightmare and soul.
♦️
"For days I sat in my room until it seemed I should go mad, and fearing lest I should utterly lose my reason I decided to kill myself, but no one realizes how dear life is until, thinking it worthless, they have tried to destroy it."

We need to try to distance ourselves from these unwanted intrusive thoughts and relabel them as false messages and become an observer or spectator to them to gain perspective and realize they are UNTRUE. We can so easily get caught up in them that we forget they aren’t reality and we need to retrain our brains to see them as false. I was able to do this for a while but when my anxiety was heightened and I got stressed it slipped a bit so I’m working hard to get back to the point where I can do this. We can all do this it takes time and hard work but it will be worth it in the end!  #anxietyrelief #overcominganxiety #anxietyrecovery #anxiety #depression #mentalillness #healing #panicdisorder #panicattack #mentalhealth #ocd  #selfbeliefquotes #positivethinking #positivequotes #positivethoughts #mentalhealthawareness #obsession #obsessed

Having a mental illness can feel like you are living a nightmare. For years, I thought my brain was defective and demonic: evil personified. With time, A LOT of therapy and several hospital admissions though, I learned to take back some control and fear my inner world less. I still have dips in my mental health - some days feel like this picture exactly - but I have learned to see my mind and my OCD as separate things. I’m capable of lots of good things too, despite the latter. 📸 @pollynor #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #itsokaynottobeokay #recovery #recoveryispossible

Today, it was a struggle to even get out of bed. I tried.. I felt like it was easier to just stay there, that the day and the world was too much for me to face. But I did eventually get up, even showered.. and if all you did today was survive the day, I’m proud of you.
