. . Today’s Journal Entry: ... Finding shelter from the storms of mental illness has become a skill of mine since my hospitalization and diagnosis in 2015. ... One of the unexpected yet remarkable ways I find refuge is by dressing up. Clothes, hair, makeup... they allow me to become someone stronger than I feel. I can step into another world for a few brief hours with just a swipe of lipstick or a fancy blouse. ... There’s no scientific or medical evidence (that I know of) to prove that this works. But I *feel* it. I *feel* different. ... Maybe it’s the placebo effect. Maybe I’m just an unrepentant escapist. Either way, the moment I look like someone other than my ordinary self, it makes even my demons silence their chatter. If it works, I’ll do it. ... • Flower Bustier: @amazonfashion • Eyeshadow: @revlon Colorstay Collection in “Player” • Lipstick: @almay Lip Vibes lipstick in “Eat Cake” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ _____________________ 🦊 _____________________ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #depressionhealing #depressionrecovery #depressionhope #depressioncoping #mentalillnesswarrior #mentalillnesslookslike #mentalhealthawareness #lookbetterfeelbetter #makeup #hair #clothes #sty#style #escapist #amazonfashion #revlon #almay #lipvibes #lipstick #narrativesofhope #hope #majordepressivedisorder #anxiety #dressup #ootd #style #styleoftheday #depressionwarrior #invisibleillness _____________________ 🦊 _____________________

Hey 👋!! There are some new faces and I want to take a minute to introduce myself & share a few things about myself. My name is Kristine, and I am originally from NS 🌊. Moved to AB 8 years ago to start a new life, which I don’t regret one bit! After loosing myself for a few years, I am on the mend and started on a new adventure (R+F consultant) on top of my full time career (Kindergarten teacher)................................................................................ 1. ☕️ Coffee lover ❤️ Hazelnut Almond Milk creamer is life (or 2 cream 1 sugar if I’m ordering😉) 2. I curse like a sailor 🙊 but I come by it honestly as I come from a long line of fishermen 😝 3. 🧘🏻‍♀️yoga & 🏋🏻‍♀️ weightlifting are my favourite ways to de-stress. 4. 🧦 My socks NEED to match. Seeing people with mismatched socks makes me uncomfortable 😣 5. I am a high functioning anxiety & depression warrior. I finally decided to fight back and began my journey about 4 years ago to find myself again, with the help of my doctor of course (and support of people close to me). Some days are harder than others, but progress is key! There is a light at the end of this dark tunnel🙌🏼 ..............Drop a comment below ⬇️ if we have anything in common 😊

Okay so here is my PSA for the day. . . Ladies, please please PLEASE stop using such negative words when talking about yourself! 🗣 Stop calling yourselves ugly, fat, lazy, and any other destructive descriptive word that you choose to describe the person that should be the most important person in your life, YOU! 🛑 . . This kind of negative self-talk is not only abusive, but it encourages a very negative self-image that is so damaging to yourself and those around you. And if you have children (or any other child that looks up to you), whether you know it or not, they are picking up on this habit. They see that mommy/auntie/grandma/sister is doing it so that must be the way people are supposed to interact with themselves. 😞 . . And I love all of you so much and would never want your precious children (as I know you don't either) to be growing up with low self-esteem, negative self-image, and an internal voice that constantly feeds toxic information to themselves. 🧠 . And not only is this toxic mentally and emotionally, but eventually it will start manifesting itself physically as well. ☢ . Each and every one of you is beautiful. 💋 And worthy of so much more. Think of it this way, if you wouldn't allow someone else to talk to you this way, then it should NEVER be okay for YOU to talk to you this way. 🤚 . . Self love is not just a phrase or some hokey concept. It is a vital part of living a healthy and happy life. Stop selling yourself short and start learning to love you for you, regardless of where you are in your journey! 💗 . Rant over. Have a beautiful day, my loves! 😘 . . . #pittiemommaoftwo #hotmessmom #fitmomoftwo #growingawarrior #mentalhealthawareness #depressionwarrior #powermomoftwo #eatallthefood #rescuemom #adoptdontshop #derbymom #toddlermom #mombodtribe #mommyneedsadrink #strongwomenchangetheworld #eatingfortwo #empowereachother #unlikelyfitnesscoach #SAHM #strongnotskinny #dryshampooforlife #mealprepFTW #fitandpregnant #secondpregnancy #foreverafoodie #pregnancyaftercesarian #girlswholikedirt #recoveringnightowl #girlmom #naturechild
