Dr. Martin Luther King Jr was an incredibly inspiring man. While in Atlanta I had the opportunity to visit his childhood home & church where he preached his moving words. I believe his dream is still in constant battle especially with the recent events taking place in America but I also believe that we've come a long way as people & are closer than ever to achieving his dream. Respect one another regardless of skin color, no matter your beliefs, despite your bank statement we are all people & we're a lot more alike than you think. We, as a people, have the power to make this admirable dream a reality. . “Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.” .

Reflect Have you ever looked back on your life and tried to remember the days when you weren't scared? When you weren't sad? When you didn't have the triggers you have now days? When you could sleep at night without the nightmares filling your head? When you could eat without the fear of being judged? When you could just be You? Life is beautiful. But also scary. You can drown in it. You'll focus on the storm around you and sink in the waters of fear. Your lungs will start to fill and you wont be able to breath. You are beautiful. You are loved. You are strong. You are brave. Please...tell yourself that when you feel yourself drowning. Tell someone else that when you see them struggling. Look beneath the surface of the water and see the beauty within. Not just in others, but in yourself as well. #ignorethelies#ptsd#ocd#anxiety#depression#anorexia#insomnia#mentalhealth#struggles#lookbeneaththesurface#yourenotalone

Long important message 🌈 Sorry for the pretty terrible drawing ❤️ Hello lovelies 🌈 Merry Christmas. I hope your day is beautiful beneath the surface as well as above 🌺 What does this mean? It means that the outside of something - a persons smile, attitude, body and so on, does not necessarily match what is going on inside their head, inside their body. 🌿 The number of times I've heard a couple of the few people who know about my ED say "you look better" or "happy to see you're smiling"... when actually on the inside I am hurting bad or putting on a show. 🌑It's sad isn't it. ❤️ It doesn't have to be like this though, I believe. You don't have to feel sad about this. Having a mental illness or fighting a difficult battle does not always show on the surface - and as soon as you and those close to you recognise this the better. 🌺 We all need to stop focusing on the surface, the top of the iceberg, and start working on what's beneath the water line. Don't work on perfecting a fake smile, work on finding reasons to have a real one. Don't work on perfecting a fake happy performance, work what's beneath that - work on what's real, if you know what I mean. 🌈 That's what I'm trying to do this Christmas - focus on what's real, the bottom of the iceberg is more important than the tip. Try not to get upset when others don't quite understand this - if you need to tell them, if not, keep your calm, and focus on what is real. 🌺🌈❤️ Love you all, dm is always open. #recovery#whatisreal#real#realsmile#work#determination#edrecovery#battlinged#fight#battling#stoplookingatthesurface#lookbeneaththesurface#recover#strong#love#us#together#battlingthetides
