Instagram photo by alana_noelle_debargeI AM VERY EMOTIONAL TODAY. ⚠ Don't give up, i see so many who have done so and are continuing too. I know its not easy but brother, sister the Lord is faithful we were never promised a life of happiness in this world; but happiness with God, we can be separate and unspotted by this world God said we can so we can, don't let the Devil lie to you any longer trust in Gods word the truth. We can be heavenly minded while living in this decaying world. We are guaranteed peace with the Father but war and distress from the world; love from the Father in Christ Jesus but hate from this world; mourning yet comforted by God; acceptance by God but rejection by man; disallowed of man but chosen of God; loss of family for gain of eternal family in Christ with persecutions; loss of this life but gain in the life to come. Oh let us not faint for all the promises of God in Christ Jesus are yes, and Amen. ➖➖➖➖†➖➖➖➖†➖➖➖➖† Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul. Hebrews 10:35‭-‬39 KJV ➖➖➖➖†➖➖➖➖†➖➖➖➖† Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us. Romans 5:1‭-‬5 KJV

I did want to kinda vent about something slightly related to that, though. I saved some calories to get something from a fast food place tonight and the workers treated me terribly because of my weight. Made fun of me to my face. It's been a long time since that's happened to me, but I kept my cool. I'm not very confrontational. I like to keep things light if I can, not to mention it surprised me into silence. I'm releasing here to share this experience because I know some of my Insta friends are going through this whole "self love, overcoming binge eating disorder" thing as well, and they would truly get this in a way my close friends and family cannot. I'm proud of myself for staying kind hearted anyway and not binging, but also not throwing my food in the trash and starving myself. I'm above it. Feels good, too. You get a better long term result when you choose to enjoy life and love it, despite how horrible people can often be. I hope some of you know that. 💞 Hopefully soon my blog will be up and running again, and then I can write about the experience as bloggers tend to do. Names withheld, of course. Lol My point is simply that I took the high road, and I'm happy that I did. -------------- #bingeeatingdisorder #fatshaming #staystrong #dontgiveup #depressionawareness #anxietyawareness #selflovejourney #vent
Instagram photo by tsphotography95PART 1: BIG PICTURE/ THE BEFORE I've been using photography and poetry to help me cope with my mental illnesses. The daily battles are intense and take everything out of me. I try to represent my illnesses through photographs and poems. Then, I had another idea. I wanted to use old or excess psychotropic medications (some I've taken but stopped, still take, or never began taking) and create pictures. They tend to represent my mental illnesses or what I'm missing out on (the happiness in a flower... the bright colors...) but they still represent my journey in some way. I'm more appreciative of even the small things (which are huge things to me). I'm aware of nearly everything. Which is good and not so good as it sends me into sensory overload. I am extremely highly sensitive. Incredibly empathetic. All good things that also can cause extreme pain and confusion. I didn't grow up in the most supportive household for a good portion of my developmental life. And things were complicated and painful and distort my life and views today. I feel like all photos and poems can tell a story that is unique to each individual viewing or reading them. The same goes for these medication collages. I'd be interested to see what stories and/or emotions you take from these. (I am no artist, so these aren't the best.) This isn't going to be something I post often. After these, it's back to my love: photography ❤ • • • • • #mentalhealthawareness #bethe1to #talkaboutit #mentalhealthwarriors #mentalhealthphotography #pocket_family #pocket_family_member #pocket_allnature #pocket_collage #pocket_colors #pocket_minimal #pocket_creative #endthestigma #bpd #dontgiveup #creativity #antidepressant #medication #depression #anxiety #bpd #mentalillness #panic #home #brokenhome #journey #coping
