HELP IRL . There is a scene in the movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" (Google it if you're unfamiliar) where young Christopher tells his stressed-out father a joke as they rush through the busy streets of San Francisco. . He describes a drowning man who begs for God's help to save him. A boat arrives, but the drowning man refuses its help claiming "God will save me." The boat leaves. Another boat comes by, again the man refuses help. The man drowns. When he gets to heaven, he asks God, "Why didn't you save me?" To this God said, "I sent you two big boats, you dummy." . The reason I'm sharing this is that it seems that some of us may have forgotten how to identify our real-life helpers. . For example, picture yourself struggling with feelings of isolation or defeat or frustration. Now imagine your co-parent (and/or his/her partner), like the boat, pleading to be more involved or take the kids more often but you doggedly refuse on pride & principle. And there you are, not in heaven or happy even, but in a purgatory of your own making with the kids in tow. . Here's my point, life DOES eventually get better after separating, but we cannot accomplish this in bitter isolation, especially while raising children. . Work towards feeling comfortable seeking & accepting support from the people within your ecosystem (ex, their new partner, extended family, and friends) because your children don't need martyr parents they need lucid & loving ones. . Consider this a gentle reminder. ❤   #thecoparentingcollective   https://linktr.ee/thecoparentingcollective . . .   #coparenting     #realtalk     #divorce     #divorcedparents     #divorcedmom     #divorceddad     #singlemom     #singledad     #stepmom     #stepdad     #bonusmom     #bonusdad     #blendedfamily     #modernfamily     #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #supportsystem     #overwhelmed     #lifeafterdivorce     #doitforthekids     #ittakesavillage     #itllbeok     #irl     #worktogether     #teamfam     #protips     #coparentinglife     #coparentingdoneright     #coparentinggoals     #pursuitofhappyness

"mammy duties", "its your job", "he has to go to work"..... Sound familiar???? Us mammies are responsible for so much, there is so much expected of us and we also are expected to just get on with it. These sketches are a mirror image of our nightly routine since as far back as when I became a 1st time mammy almost 12 years ago. I've always been the type of mammy that just did it all and never complained as like I quoted up above 👆"it's my job"... It's funny tho because I used to be able to push on threw the days with sleepless nights and it would rarely affect me, Until at the age of 33 I am feeling defeated DAILY!. Age is playing a huge factor and with that being said, I am so relieved that Theo is my FINAL round of sleepless nights as I physically and mentally am not able. There is a lot to be said to having your babies young. What seems to be impossible at the beginning, turns out to be so worth it when u are Dragging ur aging, heavier, exhausted body on school runs/activities with a dozen of kids 🤣💯 We need to swallow our "supermom" pride and ask for help when we need it. These past few weeks has kicked the sh*t out of me 😪😴 . . . .   #mammylife     #mommyduties    #sleepingdad    #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #sleeplessnights     #youngmommy    #middleagemama     #dozenkids  👦👧👶👧👦👶👧👦👶👧👦👶

Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it.   #mondaymotivation     #braveheart     #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #fitnessphotography     @beckyyeephoto     #femaleathlete     #fitfam     #adventure     #bold     #women     #vulnerabilityisstrength     #peaceandlove     @hurraykimmay     #guatemala     #lakeatitlan     #entrepreneurescapes     #femalefitness     #femalesupremacy     #femalephotographer     @colorwheelstudios     #femalefounders

It’s taken years. I find each time that I hit a crisis point from trauma it gets more difficult to recover. I have to stop taking on the weight of the world, but that’s another trauma response I have. Take on everything on my own and not let anyone help because I don’t want them weighed down by it. Foolish. Truly foolish, but I’m unlearning and relearning. Asking for help is still difficult but I’m not as ashamed when I do ask. I’m not super human, I’m just a person. I can’t expect to save the world on my own. Even if I were superhuman sometimes heroes do need help as well.   #healingfromcomplextraumaandptsd     #ptsd     #cptsd     #ptsdwarrior     #cptsdwarrior     #lifeaftertrauma     #unlearningtorelearn     #healingisajourney     #learningtoloveyourself     #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #acceptinghelp     #difficult     #breakthecycle

Today being Thanksgiving and all one thing I am extremely grateful for is my body. My body is stronger than I thought it ever could be. Within the last year I have noticed my body change physically but also my mind has become stronger as well. I am thankful for the people in my life who have stuck by my side. 2018-2019.   #learntoloveyourself     #pushforyourself     #testyourlimits     #loveyourself     #postwhatmakesyouhappy     #lifestyle     #doitforyou     #lovethejourney     #loveyourbody     #progressnotperfection     #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #gymlife     #fitfam     #lovemyfitfamily     #mindbodysoul     #thankful     #thyriodcancerfree     #mermaidstrong     #bluebutterfly     #cancersurvivor

Why I'm walking away from ‘IT ALL’ . Over the last month, I've worked myself into a frenzy. I’ve been wound up and overwhelmed and I haven't been able to understand WHY! Finally, things started to make sense over the weekend and I got the answers I needed (thanks to meditation, reiki and a few glasses of rouge with a friend). . Even though I know how futile and dangerous it is to put pressure on ourselves, I was doing it to myself! I was trying to do 'IT ALL’. I was trying to do only the most perfect things as a mother, wife, business owner, life project manager etc. etc. . But 'IT ALL’ is an illusion and none of us will ever be able to do it, so I'm now in the process of stripping things back and focusing on what brings me happiness at work and home. Here is my list so far: . - I'm reducing the amount of social activities I commit to - I'm spending less time on social media as too much freaks me out - I'm slowly reducing my dog walker's hours and doing more walks myself - I'm working with a therapist again so each week I have a whole hour to myself to work through anything that's getting in my way of being happy. - I'm letting my child watch a bit of TV in the morning so I can meditate and start my day with calmness and clarity . I'll let you know how I get on, but I'm already feeling so much better (Thank goodness)! If, like me, you'd like a whole hour to yourself to explore your thoughts get in touch, I'd love to see how I can help. hello  @hollylight  .net 📸 Andraz Lazic .   #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #youdonthavetodoitalone     #youarebrave     #youarestrongerthanyouthink     #imheretohelp     #selfcare     #lookafteryourselffirst     #makeithappentoday     #investinyourselftoday     #mindsetcoachingforwomen     #mindsetcoachlondon

With mental health week and day, I’m doing a bold thing by posting one of my favourite poems that has had a really big impact on me. Going to a therapist doesn’t make you weak. Asking for help doesn’t mean you’ve been defeated. Really think, because people love you and when you learn to love yourself things change too.   #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #mentalhealthawareness

I'm a bit late to the game in   #worldsmentalhealthday   but whatever. A bit off the beaten path before   @cyttucsonaz   production of "Cinderella" gets majorly promoted. It's all over ragmags and TV's how MANY people in the performing arts world suffer from some type of mental health disorder, from any type of addiction to any type of psychological problem be it depression, anxiety, etc. What   @sussexroyal   and   @kensingtonroyal   have done for years to promote change in how mental health is viewed is anazing- among many many other famous people, in and out of the performing arts world. Parents or kids who follow Anna- - or those who know me- know how passionate I (Erin) am about nurturing the soul of everyone, and mental health is as important as physical health. Kids and adults need to find peace in their lives and ask for help if they're struggling- whether it's from PPD, being overwhelmed with parenting, kids being stressed with school, anyone feeling as if they need to come across as being perfect- talk to whom you feel safe. NO ONE is perfect even if they look and dress the part, I promise. Find where you feel safe. There is NO SHAME- Anyone- in asking for help or talking about it. Feel free to re-post bc I think this is such an important message to talk about.   #taketimeforyou     #findyourpassion     #itsokaynottobeokay     #askforhelpwhenyouneedit     #performingartsislife     #donttakelifeforgranted     #worldsmentalhealthday     #cyttucson     #workinghardpaysoff     #stayhealthymyfriends     #letgoofthestigma

Thank you for sharing. Much respect! 🙏🏼  @k9  _obi_wan This picture shows me in some of the ups and downs of life. Sometimes it’s embarrassing to say I wasn’t the mentally and physically strong woman I am now. . . Throughout middle school till freshman year in college, I dealt with depression and anxiety by exercising so much and eating so little I could barely get up a flight of stairs. . . More recently, as a new police officer I would get caught up in developing a good reputation and striving for work goals- that mental heath and family life came second. . . On this Mental Health Awareness Day, please remember: “Strength isn’t being strong . It’s being weak and asking for help regardless. It’s taking care of ourselves in spite of it.”   @justin  .lascek . . Don’t let a stigma shush you.

Some days are harder than others. And that’s ok. Just know that every day that is a bad day, there’s another good day just around the corner. All you have to do is breathe. Don’t feel guilty for letting the dark thoughts consume you. It’s natural. Just know you’re more than those thoughts. And you are loved.   #yourenotalone     #justbreathe     #askforhelpwhenyouneedit

We are so used to cutting our children’s food all the time. But sometimes we need our food cutting too when we are holding the baby or comforting the little one and we have no free hands!

“I can do it myself!” Sometimes it’s hard to ask for help. Read the latest post on the “By The Way” link on my website, www.keystolivinglight.com.
