Single AF... Not a jigsaw tho🍃
.
I think a lot about this matter, how we, as members of society, are taught from the moment we are born that we need to have a partner in life in order to be complete, to find a sense of success or to even become someone but... I am already someone.
Matter of fact I am a pretty fucking great someone and everyone is. We do not need to have a significant other to be someone. 
Relationships are important, they are the path to live a unique experience, true. But... They do not determine who we are or who we will be. We are not a jigsaw that's missing pieces, we are living creatures and if someone decides to do the trip with you, discover all the crazy, the sad, the happy, the anxious... Well then, enjoy the ride and just always keep fighting.

I try to be as open and honest as I can be about my lifelong struggle with major depressive disorder, and the panic disorder & generalized anxiety that struck in my 30’s. It’s a major struggle every single day, and it robs me of my energy. It’s hard for some to feel empathy for people with mental illness, but I see you. I know the struggle. Please reach out for help. It’s there if you need it. Don’t let anyone tell you your mental illness is not as serious as a physical one. In fact, it’s even more serious, as your mental state influences your physical state. Take care of yourself.

I recently bought this magazine @breathemagazine_australia and what a great read it is! It's full of wonderful articles to remind us of the importance of #selfcare and ways in which we can incorporate slow living into our fast paced lives to care for our mental health.

if you find yourself looking at the world with a new lens, unsure how to relate to the sphere of social media, you are not alone.

i deleted my fb and did not post on instagram for several months, ghosted. june-jan. an ironic disconnect from my job title as social media manager in which i am submerged in this sphere everyday.

call it paranoia but in a society that generally finds talking about death to be taboo, i found this isolation to be a way to protect what energy i did have. the idea of posting for likes felt so fraudulent. i wasn’t strong enough to share my story and i found no value in pretending to be okay.

five months after losing Matthew, i lost my first love, Jesse. and although we had not been together for a long time, he was still a guardian to me, a person i will forever be intrinsically linked to, and love deeply. they say when your twin flame dies the living twin experiences a soul shock. i have no doubt that this is what my mind, heart, body and spirit have endured.

with such severe loss, came an unexpected wave of light, love, and remembrance of exactly who i was.
matt & jesse's spirits began to pour through my life in metaphysical ways i could never imagine, and their deaths reconnected me with loved ones, while their physical absence was simultaneously destroying me.

divine beauty surfaced from loss.
a heartbreak so exquisite yet healing, i refer to it as, 'the horrible wonderful.'
.
speaking about loss, grief or death is not weak. it's brave. your chrysalis phase is for you, healing is not linear. "what the caterpillar calls the end, the master calls the butterfly."
.
just as someone once pushed me to share my poetry in front of a crowd, today someone encouraged me to post the type of content i want to see. they say you have to be the change.

for jesse,

right there.

with your nostrils warming my hair.
and your heartbeat pulsing underneath my palm.

that's the best home i ever had.
thank you for the unconditional.

i remember how that felt.
i know how rare it is.

I reallly really love you.

Y’all, I made it out to a badass yoga flow class again this afternoon!!! For the third Sunday in a row. ✨✨✨
.
My body and mind are feeling it. I never fully recovered after Mave’s birth + I haven’t been great with self care. 🙋🏼‍♀️
I haven’t been out for dinner, glass of wine, walk, anything with a mama friend, solo in over 3 years. How, right?! I’m just not the mom that was insistent on getting out alone and breastfeeding complicated this for sure.
And when you’re suffering from c-ptsd i.e. moments of depression, your focus in surviving not thriving and doing your best for you kids. (Clearly a house fire only made this worse). I’m only now understanding how focusing on myself in bits & time away are critical and worth it for everyone (daddy included because his bonding with my hyper attached daughter has been incredible).
So, to all the mamas that do the best for their kids + themselves, you are my heros. I’m getting there— I mean, I had a haircut today too (Mave was in my lap for the last one 🤦🏼‍♀️), I’m using masks, setting space boundaries at home... and it makes the moments with these two heartbreaks 👦🏼👧🏼💖 even better.
.
What are your favorite ways to self care?!

My takeover did not go as planned- i didn’t know I’d be going away when signing up and felt like I knew exactly what I was going to say despite it. But I found myself clueless on where to begin and without network when I was ready. Despite practicing what I’d say on the live and knowing what I’d want to discuss my nerves got the best of me and I just went with the flow. I found myself checking the numbers even though I said i wouldn’t. I found myself ranting and getting more nervous realizing it. As soon as I ended I remembered things I wanted to say but forgot. Felt like I could’ve done something to make it better and for a moment let my self doubt take over. But overall I felt like a burden was lifted and that the support was so surreal. Thank you all for tuning in and being so supportive. I appreciate all the love and self care tips that were shared. Having this safe space to share my story means more than I can express.
As a reminder to us all, it isn’t selfish to take time to take care of ourselves.
It is hard for us to take the advice we give our friends but we are beautiful, we are loved, we are humans and we make mistakes. That doesn’t take away from our worth. I’m ending my take over with a poem I wrote that helps me feel better when I’m down- my name itself means the living moon (Aysha=living, Qamar=moon) and I try to remind myself the beauty of that in itself. 
Thanks again for joining me in sharing my story, feel free to keep in touch @aqamar92 sending you all love, light and positive vibes 💕
-Aysha

Trigger Warning ⚠️ : fatphobia 
In this picture I look so happy and in this moment I was. I attended a conference that was beyond enlightening with such powerful women I couldn’t help but take a photo to remember it by, at the confetti booth. I felt like it perfectly captured my feelings until I shared it with others. The comments I got broke my heart. I was told I shouldn’t show anyone this photo because I looked too “healthy”. I was told by people I called my friends that if I shared this people would think that the reason I hadn’t posted in awhile was because I gained so much weight. I was told that it didn’t even look like the Aysha they knew. I was told my smile was way too big and made me look like the joker. I was told that I needed to work out more before the summer ended. I was told that your face is the last part of your body to gain weight so I probably gained a lot. 
No one noticed how happy I was. I cried for days and deleted the photos off my phone. I felt so bad about myself and began to notice all the flaws I hadn’t earlier. It took me so long to find this photo because it was buried deep in my emails. I never shared this but did end up sharing another version with some of the girls i met since I felt less conscious in that, months after. But honestly I’m tired. I’m tired of filtering myself or listening to toxic advice. I just want to be happy and have every right to be.

I've been a perfectionist for as long as I can remember, and it has stifled my life in more ways than I care to admit. Sometimes I want to shake myself awake and yell 'stop it'!
.
The truth is that perfectionism stems from a place of not-good-enough and that runs much deeper than simply changing your habits.
.
I wish there was a magic potion, a magic pill, anything... that could take away the shame, the pain, the suffocation, the resentment that is a consequence of the perfectionism monster. I'll let you know if I ever find one!
.
In the meantime, what I do to quiet my inner critic is practice self-love and self-compassion. It certainly makes it easier to move through life not feeling the constant weight of needing to be perfect.
.
Here are some of the ways I practice self-love:
1. saying a mantra that resonates with me: it could be something as simple as "I am worthy. I am lovable. I am enough."
2. meditation: carving out 5-10 minutes has helped immensely to 'quiet the noise' around me so I can hear myself better and get clear on what I'm needing in the moment
3. yoga: moving your body is magical for so many reasons: it helps you process your feelings on a somatic level, it releases endorphins (happy hormones) and diaphragmatic breathing lowers your stress level by lowering your cortisol (stress hormone)
4. sitting with my feelings: quiet, non-judgmental reflection of what I'm feeling, how it's moving through my body and where it ends up has been an extremely powerful way of simply holding space for my feelings
5. journaling- writing is one of my all-time favorite ways to move through painful or uncomfortable situations. it allows me to mind dump on a page without fear of judgment or recourse from anyone else. it's a special place for me to connect with myself. it's like going to a private retreat that makes me feel energized and cleansed afterward
.
Fellow perfectionists, how do you manage perfectionism?

Kids have such a clear sense of style. My 2 yr old has a thing for knee-high boots. Zoe has a thing for anything pinks, purple, sparkly, or fuzzy. Somehow as we grow into adults, we lose that clear, obvious sense of knowing who we are and what we want. We worry about how we will affect other people, what people will think of us, if something is “acceptable” or not and suddenly it’s no longer okay to go to the grocery store in spandex, a tutu, and aviators. •

Being in an abusive/ manipulative relationship is like when somebody gives you their old clothes rather than donating them — and I mean any manipulative relationship, not necessarily a romantic one (my husband is the best ☺️). You’re not really sure how you feel about the clothes, but you take them because the other person really wants you to. You try them on several times and you’re not really sure how you feel about them. Are they you? Would you pick them out in a store? Do they go with anything you have? It might be a beautiful dress, but it’s a little too short, or too loose, but you’d feel sort of guilty not wearing it so you wear it anyway and feel uncomfortable the whole time and can’t wait to get out. •

After a while you look at your closet and it’s all someone else’s garbage that they gave to you because it was easier than throwing it away. They might be fantastic clothes — fantastic choices — but are any of them really yours? How can you know if these are the ones you would choose if you went to the store? Would you want them enough to trade your money for them? They’re not an expression of you, but an expression of how much you want to do the right thing and not be wasteful — even at the cost of your voice. •

I also have some hand-me-downs that I’ve really come to love, and that’s how I see my life right now. Maybe it was someone else’s style, but it is good. And I do my own shopping from now own💁🏽‍♀️

We worry about how we will affect other people, what people will think of us, if something is “acceptable” or not and suddenly it’s no longer okay to go to the grocery store in spandex, a tutu, and aviators. • Being in an abusive/ manipulative relationship is like when somebody gives you their old clothes rather than donating them — and I mean any manipulative relationship, not necessarily a romantic one (my husband is the best ️). You’re not really sure how you feel about the clothes, but you take them because the other person really wants you to. You try them on several times and you’re not really sure how you feel about them. Are they you? Would you pick them out in a store? Do they go with anything you have? It might be a beautiful dress, but it’s a little too short, or too loose, but you’d feel sort of guilty not wearing it so you wear it anyway and feel uncomfortable the whole time and can’t wait to get out. • After a while you look at your closet and it’s all someone else’s garbage that they gave to you because it was easier than throwing it away. They might be fantastic clothes — fantastic choices — but are any of them really yours? How can you know if these are the ones you would choose if you went to the store? Would you want them enough to trade your money for them? They’re not an expression of you, but an expression of how much you want to do the right thing and not be wasteful — even at the cost of your voice. • I also have some hand-me-downs that I’ve really come to love, and that’s how I see my life right now. Maybe it was someone else’s style, but it is good. And I do my own shopping from now own🏽‍♀️ • #abusiverelationship #healthyrelationships #motherhoodrising #motherhoodsimplified #motherhood #momsirl #childhoodunplugged #mentalhealthawareness #relationshipgoals #mommysimonsays #mentalhealthmonday #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthquotes #postpartumdepression - 1 hour ago

Sunsets are my favorite and always help put me in a good mood or give me perspective on life. Who else collects sunsets?

Yoga is my medicine, I can't give enough love to a sacred healing art that has changed my life in countless ways!  It not only helps me navigate the sometimes murky waters of life, but gives me a sense of purpose.  Thanks to Yoga, I am able to manage my anxiety and depression better than when I took medications..honestly it is because of Yoga (and my amazing family) that I am able to remain stable! 
So for anyone wondering if Yoga may help them, it really can!

It's been over 15 years since I was diagnosed with clinical depression and anxiety disorder. Although I take my medication regularly (for the most part) and engage in talk therapy, there are some days that are more trying than others. It is on those days that I feel this way the most.

How do you prep for the next day? I noticed when we are prepared it can make life easier. We don’t rush out the house as much and rush into traffic. Prepping yourself can make your mornings run smoothly which will lead to better days. Staying up and coordinating next day lunches and breakfast is worth it! How do you prepare for the next day? Let us know! 
This also helps us mentally because we are not running around trying to get last minute things together. Our thoughts run a mile a minute and preparing for the next day is one less thing that can be added into our thoughts.

Hey hi hello

I had a breakdown about a week ago and became just too overwhelmed with how busy I was and took a little hiatus from worrying about posting on here 🙃

But I’m still doing the same things fitness wise - still working out 4-5 times a week and eating 80% nutritious foods for the most part {minus the last half of Derek’s spring break} 😅

I just kinda felt like I should get back at it today and start holding myself more accountable. I also felt like I’ve been too negative and stressed and it’s honestly ridiculous so I’m working on it👊🏼 All this to say that we all struggle and go through ups and downs... you won’t always be motivated and ready to go... what important is how you handle yourself and push through it ⭐️

A young black man was shot to death by police during a mental health check in State College, PA. There are multiple ways in which this could have and should have been handled that in no required lethal force.

I survived a three day migraine! Woo! Although I’m ecstatic that my head pain decreased, I feel like I have bruises all over my body from lying in one place for so long. I’m so sore. Anyone else find this after a long attack?

"My name is Katuska. I'm 50 years old and I've been dealing with bipolar disorder 1 for quite some time. What can I say? Nobody is perfect. I remember right before getting my official diagnosis that something wasn't right. At first I thought I was exhausted and miserable, stuck in a marriage that was going from bad to worse, and things were just taking a toll on me. I think for the most part I have always been a well put together person and suddenly in a matter of days everything changed. I was experiencing all these emotions, I was crying and sad, and at the same time I was behaving completely out of character. I just didn't feel like me anymore. I was all over the place - I was going out every night, drinking, spending, staying up all night and still able to function. I had a feeling of being unstoppable and basically could do whatever I wanted. I started feeling amazing, like I've never felt in my entire life, it was exactly what I needed to cope with the situation that got me to act like that in the first place." New article on the website! This was sent in by Kathuska from Equator. Kathuska writes about her experience with bipolar and how it affected her and everything around her. She also writes about having psychosis. She has gone into a lot of detail writing about this so make sure you go to mentalgladiatotmedia.com to read the article or click the link in my bio.

I’m slowly learning what self love and self care is each and everyday. I still have a bad habit of self blame, of feeling like everything that goes wrong is my fault or could’ve been avoided if I did something differently but im slowly trying to break out of that and learning to take care of myself more. Even on this trip that was supposed to be my stress free time, I found myself blaming myself for the littlest things- for forgetting to pack items I should have remembered or for not planning the timings of things better. When I went skiing for the first time today I felt so down because prior to our lesson we had an hour to just chill and I couldn’t seem to figure out how to move. I felt like I was keeping others behind and wasn’t meant for this sport, I somehow convinced myself to stay despite being on the verge of tears for my lesson. It turned out to be amazing- I learned how to ski and was actually quick to learn to. Obviously I’m not a pro but I learned to go down the bunny hill and most of all had fun. Writing for me has always been something that allows me to calm my nerves and let go at the end of a long day so here’s a poem I wrote :) currently practicing some self care of my own with a nice face mask 😉

I’m slowly learning what self love and self care is each and everyday. I still have a bad habit of self blame, of feeling like everything that goes wrong is my fault or could’ve been avoided if I did something differently but im slowly trying to break out of that and learning to take care of myself more. Even on this trip that was supposed to be my stress free time, I found myself blaming myself for the littlest things- for forgetting to pack items I should have remembered or for not planning the timings of things better. When I went skiing for the first time today I felt so down because prior to our lesson we had an hour to just chill and I couldn’t seem to figure out how to move. I felt like I was keeping others behind and wasn’t meant for this sport, I somehow convinced myself to stay despite being on the verge of tears for my lesson. It turned out to be amazing- I learned how to ski and was actually quick to learn to. Obviously I’m not a pro but I learned to go down the bunny hill and most of all had fun. Writing for me has always been something that allows me to calm my nerves and let go at the end of a long day so here’s a poem I wrote :) currently practicing some self care of my own with a nice face mask -Aysha . . . . . . . #vulnerabilityisstrength #nostigmanoshame #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #southasia #southasianmentalhealth #love #diltodil #mentalhealthstigma #destigmatizementalillness #health #holistichealth #wellbeing #recovery #youreworthit #loveconquersall #youarenotalone #mentalhealthmatters #livetinted - 1 day ago

These are things you should never say! If you hear anyone use mental disorders as an adjective don't hesitate to correct them and educate them on why they should stop. Mental illness is serious and is not something we should take lightly. People lose their lives due to mental illness so it's definitely not a joking matter.

The stop method.  This is for those days where you feel low and not in a healthy headspace.

Some helpful tips!

1.Saying this will make it easier for the person to open up without feeling pressured to do so
2.Saying this will show the person that you still enjoy being around them and that they are not a burden
3.Sometimes we just don’t have the solutions as much as we wish we did. Saying this will show support even if you can’t fix anything because by just being there you’re doing the best you can.
4.Sometimes people need to be reminded that they are loved (even when we think its a no brainer and that they must already know that they are cared for by many) going through mental health issues can often times cause people to forget their worth. Saying this will be a kind and gentle reminder.
5.It may seem cliche and it may seem useless if the person does not agree, but words of encouragement can be greatly beneficial as it could help the person strengthen their self esteem. It can help build them up and minimize the problem. —————————————

Many of us will experience times where our self confidence is not so high, maybe you’ve been that way since childhood or maybe a recent life change has negatively impacted your once soaring confidence. Whatever the case may be, it is never too early or too late to make subtle changes in your day to day life that could positively impact your confidence. It could be something so small such as practicing proper posture all the way to finally pitching that idea you’ve been working so hard on yet doubting at a work meeting. In any case, I think that because we see so many people appear confident around we often tell ourselves things like “I can never be like this person” or “If only I had the guts to do that when I had the chance” well guess what? You do! You always have the chance to improve, whether it's battling your thoughts that cripple you with anxiety or the voice in your head that’s telling you you’re not smart enough, you’re not good enough. Confidence radiates, so in a sense "fake it until you make it”. Be forward, be outgoing, smile at strangers more, compliment someone without being afraid that they’ll think you’re weird. Listen to your own advice, challenge yourself and try to grow as much as you can. No one ever gets far with a stagnant mindset. You have to start someday because you are capable of SO much more than what you tend to believe. —————————————

Boundaries are SO important. If you allow people to overstep and cross your boundaries you'll find your self drained & unfulfilled. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself. Look at the people around you, many of them enforce their boundaries on you, they don't let people walk all over them and sometimes they're actually the ones who overstep yours! Want to know why?! It's because you don't ENFORCE your boundaries. Don't be scared to do it, it's you're right. Don't like how someone is talking to you? Speak up (respectfully). Feel used? Speak up! Need time for yourself? Say so! If you don't, you're accepting how people treat you, and nothing will ever change.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.  Help spread awareness and change the stigma attached with mental illness. If you or a loved one is struggling, know that you are not alone and there are providers and resources ready to help. I know first hand how devastating it can be to watch someone you love struggle with mental illness. But I also know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. One of the organizations I found doing amazing work is the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The NAMI Helpline is (800)950-6264.
