Happy World Suicide Prevention Day!

IMG_4221

Hello!

Today let’s have real talk. I’ve never felt suicidal thoughts or have never come close to acting upon depressed emotions but I’ve known people in my life who have battled them. It’s important to note that everyone bends but no one needs to break.

Women, when you feel like you’re just not good enough and you’re tired of either only being a sex symbol to men or not meeting the mark of the sex goddess you assume you are supposed to be – stop. Stop for a moment, put on clothes that make you feel comfortable and beautiful without worrying about what other people will think. Take a moment to look at yourself in the mirror and know that you are wonderfully and beautifully made. Don’t believe me? I know that you are and I don’t doubt it one bit. Everyone is unique and different and ultimately gorgeous. Stop comparing yourself to everyone else – in looks, salary, success, or relationships. Dust yourself off, put a bow in your hair, feel happy and light and unstoppable. You’re worth it!

Remember, it’s always National Ice Cream Day and I’ll always throw in an extra scoop and I’m here for anyone who needs to talk. Let’s support one another and stop the loss because everyone deserves to live life to the fullest.

  1. Too often the word “depression” is used to describe a what is nothing more than a temporary low mood. We need to be careful that we don’t confuse the two. I’ve done a great deal of research about depression, counseled many and am in process of finishing a book on this subject. Clinical depression is a serious illness and shouldn’t be grouped with what are just “some bad days”. It is not possible for someone with depression to “dust themselves off”. But your advice IS applicable for someone having a bad day and I thank you for that.

    • I completely understand that depression is not the same thing as a bad day, I just wanted to pass on some encouraging words that might pick up a bad mood before it could evolve day upon day into something worse. Thank you for your work in the field and happy holidays for all!
