You deserve to be happy and one day I hope you truly are. Not just saying that you are happy and telling people that you are fine to avoid showing your true emotions but real happiness that fills you up and makes you feel on top of the world. You've been through so much and you deserve to be happy ❤️

Every morning I take these little hunnies in the hope it gets me safely through the day. Be kind to everyone you meet, they may well be fighting the same battle....

Thank you @ukcmenslacrosse for the nomination.

#ItsOkayNotToBeOkay The single biggest killer of men under 45 is suicide.
In 2016, there were 5668 recorded In GB 🇬🇧. Of these, 75% were male. 41% of males who have contemplated suicide felt like they could not talk about their feelings. Not many people know about the growing rate of male suicides. It is important that people not only realise it is always okay to talk about their feelings, but that everyone is aware of the people around them and the severity of this problem. Let’s show people that it is always okay to talk regardless of who you are, your mates are just a phone call away. Sit down and have a chat.
Canterbury Christ Church University Men’s Lacrosse are fully behind this and can’t stress enough how important it is to talk about your feelings and emotions.
We nominate @cccuhockey @cccu_futsal and @ccsumenscricket to take on this challenge!

A few statements that can actually be more harmful than helpful. You will never truly know how another person is experiencing something. It is helpful to ask them how they are feeling, listen to them and try to be empathetic. #beheardcounselling #personcentred #grief #itsokaynottobeokay #empathy #wisewords @beheardcounselling

This mornings thoughts... 💭
Things aren’t always what they seem especially on social media. People share the highs of their life more than the lows. Some may appear to have the ‘perfect life’ but no one truly knows what goes on behind closed doors.
So don’t compare yourself to others - most of us are fighting battles no one knows about. No one really shares the nitty gritty personal stuff because its personal. You might just be comparing yourself to something that’s not entirely true in its entirety.

So live your life for you, don’t compare to others, stop chasing after this ‘perfect life’ and work with what you have.
Be in the present and make every moment count.
Spread love and kindness wherever you go and check up on people to make sure they are genuinely okay.
And if you’re not okay then that’s okay but please tell someone so they can help you. Because you are beautiful and you matter. You are loved. ❤️ #itsokaynottobeokay #dontcompareyourself #nosuchthingasperfect #everybodyhurts #bereal #lovethelifeyoulive #youareworthy #youareunique #loveyourself #loveyourlife #spreadlove #spreadkindness #livelaughlovelonger 💜

@jjhalliley gave me some food for thought the other day after his awesome post and insight . 1 in 4 people suffer from a mental health issue . People keep banging on about how it’s ok to talk it is and yet it’s all superficial . No one is really talking . So here’s mine , after 6 years post anorexia recovery I finally realised that admitting to an eating disorder past is not weak . I have now come to realise that In fact I was never weak . To starve yourself for years takes a certain level of willpower and drive . Going against all your body’s innate mechanisms ; screaming at you to eat . Conversely , strength is also talking about your illness and admitting you need help . Strength is also recovery , helping others learn from your experience and instilling hope . In the age we live In , everyone is striving for this perfect and normal life. Nothing is perfect and normal is most definitely overrated . #itsokaynottobeokay #recovery #anorexiarecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #mindmentalhealthcharity #beateatingdisorders #mentalhealthawareness #stength

Only a small percentage of people know that suicide is the most likely cause of death for men under 45. Let's show men anywhere and everywhere that it's ok to talk!

Take a selfie with a 👌🏾and let's spread the word.

~ it's International Forgiveness Day, a time to forgive and to be forgiven.
.
This photo is from now, but I'm wearing a t-shirt from 2010.  The date is significant as it's when I boarded a roller coaster, the emotional kind that once it starts it never really stops. I've read that when you can tell your story and it doesn't make you cry then you've healed; I'm not there yet, maybe I never will be, life is full of highs and lows, but I've always believed that everything happens for a reason and that our destiny is mapped out for us, and through it all I remain optimistic.  So I take the rough with the smooth, and even though sometimes it feels like the world is conspiring against me, I know that everything that's happened has led me to where and who I am today.  I have my faults, I overthink everything and I'm full of doubts and insecurities, but I'm also stronger than I sometimes think, I'm kind, caring and sensitive, and I'm giving and forgiving and believe in and see the good in everyone, and sometimes this faith in humanity has worked against me, but it won't change who I am at heart, I'm not perfect but I'm worth loving, and I'll continue to take life one day at a time.

Been telling my mate I can just go and do a 10k run whenever I want... not really ran this year... not been #CrossFit for six weeks... and I have an impressive pit of #manboobs at the moment. 1 hour and 5 later - 10k done. Hopefully will fuck the #anxiety off. Won’t lie though, I am lay and stuck on my bedroom floor. Send help!! .
