Alive, Apparently, and Come Over: I'm a therapist and keep this poster in my waiting room, apparently it's saved a few lives I DONT LIKE THE PHRASE "A CRY FOR HELP"ェJuST DONT LKE HOW IT SOuNDS, WHEN SOMEBODY SAYS TO ME, "I'M THINKING ABOUT SUICIDE, I HAVE A PLAN: I JUST NEED A REASON NOT TO DOITTHE LAST THING I SEE IS HELPLESSNESS. I THINK: YOUR DEPRESSION HAS BEEN BEATING YOU UP FOR YEARS. IT'S CALLED YOU UGLY, AND STUPID, AND PATHETIC, AND A FAILURE, FOR SO LONG THAT YOU'VE FORGOTTEN THAT IT'S WRONG. YOU DON'T SEE ANY GOOD IN YOURSELF, AND YOu DON'T HAVE ANY HOPE. BUT STILL, HERE YOu ARE: YOU'VE COME OVER TO ME, BANGED ON MY DOOR, AND SAID, "HEY! STAYING ALIVE IS REALLY HARD RIGHT NOW! JUST GIVE ME SOMETHING TO FIGHT WITHI I DON'T CARE IF IT'S A STICK! GIVE ME A STICK AND I CAN STAY ALIVE!" HOW IS THAT HELPLESS? I THINK THAT'S INCREDIBLE. YOU'RE LIKE A MARINE: TRAPPED FOR YEARS BEHIND ENEMY LINES, YOUR GUN HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY, YOU'RE OUT OF AMMO, YOU'RE MALNOURISHED, AND YOU'VE PROBABLY CAIGHT SOME KIND OF JUNGLE VIRUS THAT'S MAKING YOU HALLLICINATE GIANT SPIDERS AND YOU'RE STILL JUST GOING, "GIVE ME A STICK. I'M NOT DYING OUT HERE." "A CRY FOR HELP" MAKES IT SOND LIKE I'M SuppOSED TO AKE PITY ON YOu, BUT YOU DON'T NEED MY PITY THIS ISNT PATHETIC. THIS IS THE WILL TO SURVIVE. THIS IS HOW HUMANS LIVED LONG ENOIGH TO BECOME THE DOMINANT SPECIES. WITH NO HOPE, RUNNING ON NOTHING, YOU'RE READY TO CLIT THROUGH A HUNDRED MILES OF HOSTILE JUNGLE WITH NOTHING BUT A STICK, IF THATS WHAT IT TAKES TO GET TO SAFETY ALL IM DOING IS HANDING OUT STICKS YOU'RE THE ONE STAYING ALIVE irondad-not-ironsad: aurora-nerin: tea-rabbits: ultimate-science-nerd: positivelyqueerace: dreamsrainandwitchythings: intp-again: muslimintp-1999-girl: asexualchristian: mentalmentalhealth: girlwhorpsalot: I needed this. Thank you to all the people who posted this so I ended up seeing it. I really needed this right now. Thank you! Yeah… Not gonna lie… I cried… We need more people like this Goddamn it stop making me feel human The therapist I wanna be. Text in the image: “I’m a therapist and keep this poster in my waiting room, apparently it’s saved a few lives.” I don’t like the phrase “a cry for help.” I just don’t like how it sounds. When somebody says to me, “I’m thinking about suicide. I have a plan: I just need a reason not to do it,” the last thing I see is helplessness. I think your depression has been beating you up for years. It’s called you ugly, and stupid, and pathetic, and a failure, for so long that you’ve forgotten that it’s wrong. You don’t see any good in yourself, and you don’t have any hope. But still here you are: you’ve come over to me, banged on my door and said, “HEY! Staying alive is REALLY HARD right now! Just give me something to fight with! I don’t care if it’s a stick! Give me a stick and I can stay alive!” How is that helpless? I think that’s incredible. You’re like a marine: trapped for years behind enemy lines. Your gun has been taken away, you’re out of ammo, you’re malnourished, and you’ve probably caught some kind of jungle virus that’s making you hallucinate giant spiders. And you’re still just going, “GIVE ME A STICK. I’M NOT DYING OUT HERE.”“A cry for help” makes it sound like I’m supposed to take pity on you, but you don’t need my pity. This isn’t pathetic. This is the will to survive. This is how humans lived long enough to become the dominant species. With NO hope, running on NOTHING, you’re ready to cut through a hundred miles of hostile jungle with nothing but a stick, if that’s what it takes to get to safety. All I’m doing is handing out sticks. You’re the one saying alive. I legit cried at this. I’ve needed to hear it put this way. Bless this post. Every time I see this post I stop to read the whole image. It always helps — even on the good days. Because it wasn’t weakness. It wasn’t shameful to seek help. It wasn’t pathetic to “cry for help”. I was looking for a stick, be that from myself or from someone else. I was trying to find a way out. I was trying to heal myself. this is fuckin incredible.  I’m sorry if I repost to many of these, but if it could be someone’s “stick” then it’s worth it

Bad, Bad Day, and Family: coolben94 Dear past self, When u cut off ur hair mom wont be that mad and you dont have to run away. From Ben (that's you) Source: coolben94 just going to vent here for a lil' bit if you don't mind. im really really struggling at the moment which is probably no secret because whenever i think im going to do something stupid, i post a sad caption and then i get sad about posting a sad caption because i don't want to make other people sad :-( 2017 has been the worst year of my life so far. I've hit a low point and i feel like im stuck in it. i know a way out of it but the only way out could either make my life amazing or make things so much worse than it already is. that thing would be to come out as trans to my mum but right now it's not even an option because my home life is extremely bad no matter how much i deny it. my friends are really good like they notice when im feeling down and i could look them dead in the eyes and say im fine but i know for a fact they see right through me. this year ive had many times where ive questioned living and to be honest im still questioning it (i really am not saying this for attention, i just need to vent so don't feel the need to swoop in at me ). today particularly was a bad day because i got home from a holiday that i really wasn't enjoying because of how im feeling inside, to be purposely locked out my house and then when i phoned my mum to apologise (i didn't do anything wrong but it was the only way she'd let me in) she put me on speaker in front of some of my family and i could hear them all making fun of me and it made me feel like shit. so you kinda see where I'm at. I can't do anything because I'm not in the right situation to do it and i know im in denial about how bad things are at home. for the depressing stuff that i don't really like to talk about, i really need to see a professional so im going to attempt to persuade my mum again tomorrow. also (on a different note) i have a lisp (many people do) and when I was young it was really bad but i went to speech lessons and its sorta okay now but recently (due to my lisp making things hard to say) i have been stuttering on many words and sentences and i think im developing a minor stammer. congratulations if you read this far and partially understood what i was saying. Love you all - Finn 🐢

Children, Parents, and Control: 13 Helpful Phrases You Can Say to Calm an Anxious Child "I AM HERE; YOU ARE SAFE." Anxiety has a way of making things look worse and feel scarier than when we are not feeling worried. These words can offer comfort and safety when your child is feeling out of control, especially if they are at the height of their worry. "TELL ME ABOUT IT." Give your child room to talk about their fears without interrupting. Some children need to have time to process through their thoughts. HOW BIG IS YOUR WORRY?" Help your child verbalize the size of their worry and give you an accurate picture of how it feels to them "WHAT DO YOU WANT TO TELL YOUR WORRY?" Give your child room to talk about their fears without interrupting. Some children need to have time to process through their thoughts. "CAN YOU DRAW IT?" Many kids cannot express their emotions with words. Encourage them to draw paint or create their worries on paper. "LET'S CHANGE THE ENDING." Anxious children often feel stuck in the same pattern without a way out. Help them see different options by telling their story, but leaving off the ending. WHAT OTHER THINGS DO YOU KNOW ABOU FILL IN BLANK)?" Some children feel empowered when they have more information about their fear (especially things like tornadoes, bees, elevators, etc.) "WHICH CALMING STRATEGY DO YOU WANT TO USE? Work proactively to create a long list of calming strategies your child enjoys Practice them during the day, at random times when your child feels calm "I'M GOING TO TAKE A DEEP BREATH Sometimes our children are so worried that they resist our encouragement to pick a calming strategy. In this case, use yourself as the calming skl! Verbalize what you are doing and how it makes you feel IT'S SCARY AND." Acknowledge your child's fear without making it even more frightening by using the word "AND." After the word "and" you can add phrases like, You are safe." or You've conquered this fear before." or You have a plan." "I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR ABOUT... It's hard to see our kids suffer with worry. Many parents rush in to rescue their child from an anxiety-producing situation "WHAT DO YOU NEED FROM ME?" Instead of assuming that you know what your child needs, give them an opportunity to tell you what would help "THIS FEELING WILL PASS." This may be a phrase you can both use when your child is at the height of panic. All feelings pass eventually. It often feels like they will never end, you won't make it through, or it's too hard. And that's OK. Don't let your brain get stuck in that moment, focus on the relief that is on the horizon Source: This infographic was created based on a wonderful article written by Nicole Schwawrz found at Lime Adventures.com.
