My blog now has a facebook page*!

Facebook is the first thing I check every day, so it will be an excellent place to send urgent messages. 

I’ll be posting inspirational quotes and pictures, along with research and resources for mental health. You are welcome to write on the wall, to receive and give support to others** if you wish to do so. 

Since facebook is the first thing I check, I will be much more likely to let you know when I am going to be unavailable. Because I know I really suck at it on here! I will also post when I have made a new post on this blog and any upcoming post series/weekly challenges etc. 

*: If you see any other fb page with alwaysworthrecovery in the name and no official at the end, it is NOT me.

How do you get over triggers? Things as simple as just looking at pictures of my friends and small things mentioned in conversation can majorly trigger me and I don't know how to not let it bother me

Exposure. Like for me, I would (and sometimes still do) get triggered by images/scenes/descriptions in books of self-harm. 

The goal for exposing yourself to triggers is to find out why they trigger you. I wasn’t actually triggered by a scene of someone hurting themselves, those things just make me think about hurting myself and the time where I did so frequently and severely. 

Though it would have been easier with a professional to aid me (which is what I recommend, or someone who is patient and understanding of your triggers and recovery), I managed to figure that out on my own and to get through that feeling, I reminded myself it never did me any good, I’d have to deal with hiding them, I’d feel guilty afterwards, etc. And then I always tried to distract myself afterwards. 

Avoiding your triggers all the time is one of the worst things you could do. You’re shielding yourself constantly, and it doesn’t help. Eventually you need to face them so you can heal. 

Only exposure yourself to triggers when you are in a safe environment, keep a journal of how your triggers make you feel and why they trigger you, and develop some sort of support system. Develop a safety plan for when you are triggered and not in a safe environment (i.e. a public place where you can’t exactly curl up under a blanket).

Hopefully going to have a little project to present to you tonight!

“when the boys pull your hair and push you to the ground
during recess
I promise not to tell you that it’s because they like you.
when the teachers call home to tell me that
you pushed them to the ground after you
I’ll take you out of school early and buy
you your favorite ice cream.
when you get older and the boys
try to touch you when you don’t want to be touched
I’ll look at you like the sun when you come home
with anger in your fists.
they all tell you not to fight fire with fire
but that is only because they are afraid of your flames.
when the boys yell after you like hyenas
you yell back, baby.
I will not teach you to be afraid of your anger
so that you look for it in others.
I will not make you be the better person
because you already are.
you wanna fight ‘em? fight ‘em.
don’t you dare apologize for the fierce love
you have for yourself
and the lengths you go to preserve it.
when the boys try to tell you to soften up
I hope you make them bleed with your edges.
I hope you remember that you are not theirs
that their disappointment in you is not yours.
when the boys come to your door with pretty words and
angry eyes
I hope you show them the anger in yours.
I hope you show them just how strong your mommy
thinks you are.
I hope you show them the animal they can’t always
see in their own reflection.
when the boys come with the intention of hurting you
my advice will always stay the same, my darling:
give ‘em hell.”

I worry so much about my weight and I know I shouldn't. I just don't want someone to look at me and think "Ew, she's gross" I'm pretty tall for my age being only 14 and 5'8 probably almost 5'9 but, I weigh almost 160 pounds, I keep getting stretch marks and I hate even wearing shorts because my legs are covered in them. I work out and I've cut down on what I eat alot but, I started a new medication and it made me gain a lot of weight and no matter what I just keep gaining weight. pt. 1

Diet pills aren’t good for anyone under any circumstances. Never ever take diet pills. Ever.

You also have to remember your age. You’re still growing and your body is still figuring out its weight range.

Tons of people have stretch marks and tummies with fat on them and thighs that jiggle. I have all three!

You are beautiful. With or without stretch marks. With or without a flat tummy.

You only have one life and you are so young, don’t spend it hating yourself and your body.

There is no one definition of beauty. Don’t let society or those around you fool you. You’re beautiful just as you are.

The only thing you need to worry about is health. Are you eating a balanced diet? Are you getting enough physical activity? Are you sleeping enough? Are you staying hydrated? Are you being kind to yourself?

Those are the questions you should be asking yourself. Taking proper care of your body is what you should be focusing on. This is the only body you’re going to have. Take care of it so you can live a happy life.
