We’ll always remember 9/11 πŸ™

Hey lovelies πŸ’•,

Today is an important day to remember all the victims of the 9/11 attack in New York City. Let’s never forget this awful day.

Two years ago I went to NYC and went to this place. It is a beautiful place to think about what happened and reflect and hope that something like this will never ever happen again in this world we live in.

After I did my speech in the United Nations I felt really that I’m responsible for our planet. We all contribute to our planet. We can change this world. We want a peaceful world and we can change the world if we think about little things. I hope we all gonna make it and strive to a better world, because everybody deserve it.

I know there is a lot of bad news going around nowadays but I still believe the world is not so bad as we think. The world is good if only you change the view you look to it ✌ Little actions make people happy and happiness is contagious so go out and spread some love πŸ’•

Love is the strongest emotions of a human being and with love so many things can be solved. Hug a stranger, help somebody in need, smile at a stranger, say I love you to the people you love, because everything can be gone just in one day. Don’t leave important things unsaid and help each other.

Rest in peace for all victims and beloved families and friends who are still suffering from a loss. God bless you πŸ™ You will never be forgotten.

Much love,

xoxo

World suicide prevention day

Hey all πŸ’•,

Today is an important day in the world. Today is world suicide prevention day. More than 800.000 people die each year of commiting suicide. That’s one person every 40 seconds. This is a horrible fact.

This number needs to be less. There shouldn’t be a stigma around mental health illnesses aymore. It is so important to talk about it, find support and get help.

Suffering from anxiety myself I had a period long time ago where I felt suicidal. I know from myself that I wouldn’t do anything but I had really negative thoughts, couldn’t sleep at night, felt really anxious and was completely withdrawing my social life. I didn’t leave my house for like two months while working on a proyect for school. This was really not okay.

I’m so glad I past that horrible time. I can still feel negative thoughts and sometimes feel worthless but support and antidepressants really saved my life. I’m so glad I take them now since 7 months.

To all the people suffering right now from mental health issues: please reach out. Don’t be ashamed to admit that you are feeling bad. It isn’t your fault. Mental health is as important as physical health. You deserve the help you need. You are never alone πŸ’•πŸ’«

Much love,

To be vulnerable will set you free in life πŸ’•πŸ’«

Hey lovelies πŸ’•,

I will share with you a little story about this inspiring quote. I hope you will like it 😘

It’s hard to be vulnerable in a fake world, isn’t it? We all share our best pictures on social media to make us look like we live the perfect life, to make us look like we have no problems in life and to just create the feeling that we are always happy when we in fact aren’t.

None of this is true. We don’t have a perfect life. There will be always hard times and obstacles in life we have to face. Everybody experience bad emotions and problems; from a loss of a loved one, ending relationships, to mental health issues or money/job related problems. We all have them but we just are afraid to share all those things.

Since I shared my feelings, my experiences in life and that I suffer from anxiety in life I feel not fake anymore. I think that in hard times you can connect with people and build a community.

Like now, there are so many nature disasters happening around the world. It is in those hard times that we find the right people to connect with and to build bridges with. I pray for all those people in need πŸ™ .

You don’t have to face a problem on your own. Share it with a friend, a familiar, a doctor, just anybody who make you feel safe. Being vulnerable can be terrifying. It takes a lot of courage to be vulnerable. Trust me, I have been there. However, I have learned that being a highly sensitive person is a blessing. Being vulnerable and pouring your heart out can set you free πŸ’« .

We need more people on this earth who are willing to be vulnerable and share their feelings and thoughts. We can help those people in need and connect with them. In this way, we can make this world a better place; a place where honesty and authenticity exists, a place where fake no longer exists πŸŒπŸ’•

Much love,

How I went out of my comfortzone while having anxietyΒ 

Hey lovely people πŸ’œ,

I wanted to share my story about anxiety and how I am dealing with it. This quote just fits perfectly into my story. I love this quote πŸ‘πŸ’«

This is hard for people especially the ones facing a mental illness like me. My anxiety tells me to stay in my comfortzone. My anxiety tells me to stay in my bed where I feel safe. 

I still find it hard to get out of the place where I feel safe. I have grown a lot and did so many things this year out of my comfortzone such as living on my own for a half year in Spain while my family was living in The Netherlands and doing my internship in Spain.

I had so much anxiety before I began my internship. I was afraid of the routine. I was afraid if people would make fun of me. I was afraid of doing things wrong. I was shaking, had twice a panic attack on the street and just felt so bad. I am so glad I didn’t give up and asked for help which also was outside my comfortzone. 

Since I went to the doctor in February and got subscriped antidepressants and benzo’s in Spain whenever I need them I feel so much better. I was afraid of not graduating because of failing my exam in June and I passed with an 8 in August and I’m finally graduated! πŸŽ‰πŸŽ“ .

So please my lovelies, go out of your comfortzone. For anyone who experiences mental health issues; ask for help and support. Remember you are never alone πŸ’œπŸ’•πŸ’« It’s so important to go out of your comfortzone because you began to realize what you are capable of.

Things always seem much scarier than they are. I worked with a lovely team and met so many lovely friends from all over the world. I shared that I suffer from anxiety and they all helped me out and I’m just forever thankful for all of it πŸ’«

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANKYOUUUU πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

I love you all. I love the mental health community on Instagram and WordPress so much because it’s helping me grow and feel less alone. Since I share my story online I feel so much lighter. I don’t have to be ashamed of anything. I have anxiety but that doesn’t define me

Go out of your comfortzone, take babysteps πŸ‘£ and eventually you will be okay πŸ’œπŸ’«

Positive self-talk will change your life πŸ’«

Hey lovelies πŸ’•,

I just wanted to share a story about this quote. Positive self-talk is always a good idea and SO important.

I must admit that I have spend years in self-doubting and negative self-talk. During my childhood I was being bullied a lot…. This caused me anxiety and caused me that I started believing if people say mean things at me like that I was ugly or that I should better off be dead….

Nowadays, I feel much more confident than before. I don’t believe what people say to me anymore. I’m getting better at being myself and not caring what other people think of me. Sometimes it’s still hard but I’m getting there. I began to realize how important postive self talk is. We all have flaws but we should love our imperfect self because that’s what makes us human πŸ’«πŸ’•

We are so much more than all the stuff people say to us or the things they judge us on. If anybody has experienced this; don’t believe what they say to you. Stay true to yourself. All this people are just so jealous and don’t feel good about themselves and that’s why they start bullying people. They think they are better than us, but hell no WE ARE BETTER THAN THEM!

Be your beautiful self my lovelies and stop negative self talk. Take little steps each day, babysteps πŸ‘£. Begin to talk positive about yourself and watch how your life will change πŸ’« You can do it! πŸ‘

Much love,

xoxo πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

Life is way too short to spend another day at war with yourselfΒ 

Hey lovelies πŸ’•,

​This is such a beautiful reminder πŸ’•πŸ’œ

Today I didn’t felt okay. I kinda hate to feel nauseous because of anxiety. Anxiety comes and goes but it’s always there. Sometimes there is no reason why we feel this way, we just feel it all. I wasn’t in the mood to do anything but I cleaned my room and decorate it which was a big thing for me! πŸ‘ .

It’s just a bad day not a bad life. Life is too short to be hard on yourself. We should be kinder to ourselves. I can get caught up with doubts and thoughts of I’m not good enough often. I’m learning to analyse my thoughts; which ones are true and which ones are better to Iet go?! You are all beautiful πŸ’« .

Stop being so damn hard on yourself. Try to be kinder to yourself. It’s okay if you had a bad day today. You have the right to feel it all. Ask for help when you need help. Be kind to yourself. Be with people who lift you up.

You all deserve a beautiful life. I wish to you all that you are happy about yourself. You are the writer of your life and I wish that you all can write the most amazing & beautiful story ever witten πŸ’•πŸ’«

Much love,

xoxo

You can’t figure your life out all in once

Hey all πŸ’•,

This is really one of the best quotes which I can relate to so well πŸ‘

I’m just 24 years old and it seems like we have to rush in life. I’m just graduated. I still don’t have my degree. That takes time. I’m just so done with some people asking me what I wanna do after graduate, what kind of job I want, when do I move out, if I have a boyfriend and the list goes on and on (if you have one you get the question, when are you going to have babies/when are you going to marry). Just fucking stop this shit talk.

Many young people in life are stressed out, suffer from a mental illness or just don’t feel good. Asking all those questions makes anxiety worse. Just stop it.

I think nobody can figure out life in once. Every day is a new day. Every day we are learning something. We are always growing. We will never stop learning. Nobody has life figured out.

When people ask all these questions all the time I feel like life is a list of things you have to do like a grocery list. Hell no. Life is a mistery. We don’t know what will happen tomorrow. We should stop stressing about having our lives figured out. Whatever will be, will be πŸ’«πŸ™

Just have faith, work towards your dreams and be surround about good people who don’t stress you out but instead lift you up. Be surrounded by people who light your world up πŸ’« You will be okay my lovelies πŸ’•

Much love,

xoxo

Don’t wait for everything to be perfect before you decide to enjoy your life πŸ’­

Hey lovelies 😘,

I love this quote so much πŸ’•πŸ’­ We are all waiting for everything to be perfect in our lives to finally enjoy our lives. Time doesn’t stop for anybody. Now is the right time. Life will never be perfect. There will be good and bad times. We just have to try to make the best of it which of course is easier said than done.

For people with a mental illness like myself it it’s even more difficult to enjoy life. Having anxiety makes it sometimes so hard to just feel peaceful and enjoy life. Having a mental health illness is really hard and makes life so difficult sometimes. That’s why it’s even more important for people with a mental health illness to build a good relationship with ourselves and do thinks we love. It all takes time. If you really have a bad day just a cup of tea or some meds will help you to make it another day.

With little steps each day we can grow. Try to talk with a stranger, try to help yourself to talk about your struggles with good friends and family and most of all try to be kind to yourself. We shouldn’t be too hard on ourselves. Having a mental illness is not our fault. We can make it another day πŸ€

We are warriors πŸ’ͺWe can enjoy our lives and do the things we love πŸ’• I know you can too!

Much love,

xoxo
