Hi, I’m Shelby! Inspiring women to rise 💡Self love educator 💕Rooting for you 🧠Talking mental health
Signs that someone is good for your mental health: • 1 - They ask about YOU & listen to your response • 2 - They can be vulnerable around you; we feel best when we can connect • 3 - They’re reliable; they follow through on what they say they’ll do • 4 - They have self compassion; we all have bad days, they understand this is true for themself and you • 5 - They take care of themself • 6 - They can seek, accept, and give help • 7 - They are proud of you, even when you feel you don’t deserve it • 8 - You do not feel pressured to meet their expectations; you are enough • As you all read through the list I’m sure you gave the supports in your life mental checks or strikes by each item • Go through once more and rate yourself • Do you feel like I forgot anything? Let me know another measure you would include in the comments⬇️ • #mentalhealthquotes #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #austinwomen #anxietywarrior #healthyfriendship #womensupportwomen #loveanybody #stigmafighter #mentalhealthstigma #chooseyourfriendswisely #bestfriendquotes #lonelyquotes #peoplepleaser #girlstopapologizing #roommateproblems #thisismyyear #findyourtribelovethemhard #mamatribe #myimperfectreality #selfcompassion #empathyquotes

I see you. I love you. You’re safe here. • Thanks to the beautiful @heyamberrae these are now words I can tell myself, even the parts I have denied • The most powerful piece...you are safe here • I often deny my past • I deny my past of disordered eating by saying she’s gone, that’s over • But instead I should tell her how she’s safe now • I had a client today ask me if her daughter’s sexual trauma will resurface throughout her life • And the answer is yes • Trauma resurfaces in new developmental periods and it can reappear when triggered • But trauma is like papers overflowing in a filing cabinet • They’re unregulated and causing chaos • and the cabinet can’t function until the papers are filed correctly • But once they are we can say to that woman in our past, the one we fought so hard to bring to today: I see you. I love you. You’re safe here. • #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #womensupportwomen #semicolonproject #austinwomen #empoweringquotes #mentalhealthquotes #anxietyisreal #stigmafighter #selfacceptance #insomniaproblems #mentalhealthstigma #takecareofyou #counselorlife #stophurtingme #edawareness #bingeeatingrecovery #depressionawareness #thrivewithme #theshineproject #loveanybody #myimperfectreality #choosewonderoverworry #childhoodtrauma #nomeansno #ichooseme #becauseofalt

Happy National Pet Day🐾 • My life in undergraduate was dogs • I’m not exaggerating • My freshman year I joined a service dog training organization at Texas A&M University and began practicing on pups at Bryan Animal Shelter for months • Sophomore year I trained a handsome golden retriever who is now a PTSD & Diabetic Alert dog for a veteran in California who is just the most wonderful man • My junior year I began training others and locating the future service dogs of @aggieguidedogsandservicedogs • My senior year was focused on this chica 🐶 • Agility training, trick training, and cuddles oh my • This picture was actually taken during a project in which the talented Amy photographed dogs seeing their owners for the first time after a night apart • If everyone could look this pleased and intrigued when I walk in a room that’d be great😂 • Tag me in photos of your pets! I need to see all the wet noses and paw paws 🐾 • #nationalpetday2019 #australianshepherdofinsta #aussiesdoingthings #sitstayplay #petsmartcharities #austinwomen #dogsofzilkerpark #austindogs #muttnation #gotastoryforyaags #aggieguidedogsandservicedogs #aggiepets #redmerleaussie

Mediocre people pull great people back to mediocre - @mrdavehollis • Girl do not let someone else’s limiting beliefs stop you from achieving your dream • Whether that dream is to be a better mom, to get back in shape, to write a book, to run a marathon, to go back to school, or even to start a non-profit • Do not let their excuses into your heart • When someone tells us how hard a task is or simply states we won’t be able to achieve it that gives us ALL the reasons not to try • But look for that one reason to brush off their disempowered beliefs and show them how it is really done • Today I am grateful for the dreamer mentality I have been given • Today I am grateful I use my days to build women up instead of tear them down • What is something you’ve been able to accomplish despite the doubt? • #makeyourreality #thrivewithme #quotestoponder #womensupportwomen #empoweringquotes #mentalhealthmonth #motherhoodslens #dowhatyoucan #theshineproject #austinwomen #semicolonproject #anxietyfighter #beliefsystem #gratefullness #davehollis #girlstopapologizing

Mamas • You’re doing better than you think you are • There is no manual • If you can give your child unconditional love and support than you are winning • Happy Birthday to my mama • She always answers my random questions, helps me out in times of need, and most importantly - introduced me to hot tamales 🌶 😂 • #butterhalf #austinwomen #motherhoodslens #loveanybody #myimperfectreality

Asking for and utilizing what you need is not weak🙌🏼 • Taking medication for mental health should not be looked at any differently than a diabetic taking Metformin or taking Synthroid for a thyroid imbalance • Often it can feel easy to stop our medication when it is for depression or anxiety or bipolar disorder, etc. • You’re in a good place, feeling okay and so you feel strong enough to thrive without it • However, remember you have an illness • You need to take medication just like a diabetic would utilize theirs to survive and thrive • It cannot be wished or willed away • However, a mental illnesses hold on you can be diminished with coping skills, counseling, and (as prescribed) medication • It is not a sign of weakness • It is not a sign that you didn’t do enough journaling or enough emotional work or enough self care • Utilize what you need and thrive girl • #mentalhealthquotes #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #counselorlife #usewhatyouhave #medicationtime #stophurtingme #mentalhealthstigma #anxietyisreal #semicolonproject #takecareofyou #stigmafighter #anxietyattack #depressionawareness #therapyquotes #therapysession #medicationsideeffects #thrivewithme #myimperfectreality #selfacceptance #loveanybody #insomniaproblems #theshineproject

A P R I L • Autism awareness • STI Awareness • Donate Life awareness • Child abuse prevention • Sexual assault awareness • A month for all the things • Every 92 seconds an American is sexually assaulted • Every 10 seconds a report of child abuse is made • I share these stats not to shock and scare you, but to remind you the time is now to end violence in our community • I get the opportunity to work with children and secondary victims of sexual abuse every day • These victims need your support for free counseling, legal, and court school services • These survivors need you to spread the message • Did you know that anyone over the age of 18 in Texas is a mandated reporter if they suspect child abuse or neglect? • #stopthehurt #listenbelievesupport #selflovespo #aprilawareness #childabuseawareness #sexualassault #survivors #strongwomenunite #autismawarenessmonth #austinwomenmagazine #mandatedreporter #metoomovement #weartealday #altsummit #theflashtruck #becauseofalt #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #endsexualviolence #stophurtingme #counselorlife
