Never Alone Story

and be a part of telling
over 100,000 Never Alone Stories.

Never Alone is here today because I decided to share my story of depression and struggle after my father died. The weight that lifted off my shoulders from writing the story was only matched by hearing from people I didn't know thanking me for sharing it.

Imagine if 100,000 stories were shared.
Think of how many people we can help realize that they are not alone.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU DID THIS?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I do this all the time. Lately, I have been avoiding taking the time to meditate while in-bed before I finish reading.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
EVERY time I take 10-20 minutes to put my kindle down, shut my eyes and practice meditating (practice is the keyword here) I get an AMAZING DEEP AND UNINTERRUPTED sleep. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Yet, I find myself doing it only 3-4 times a week.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There are not legit reasons why the rest of the days I don't do it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Other than avoidance.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I am in bed already.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I have the time to do it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I have nothing else going on.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I even think about it every night.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
YET I STILL AVOID IT.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
🤔 I have a question for you⁠⠀
⁠⠀
What is one thing you avoid, that you would like to learn to accept to do on a regular basis?⁠⠀
⁠⠀

🧠mental health help VS physical health help🏃🏻‍♀️⁠⠀
⁠⠀
When talking about these two online, I want to know what your thoughts are on whats "safe" to talk about and what isn't?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And Why?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Because I am having a very hard time in seeing the difference in these two.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Especially if we actually want to change the stigma around talking about mental health. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
How can we change the stigma when those people / business's / brands are not willing to to speak honestly to those who need it.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
A lot of people are curbing the growth by playing it safe.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Fuck safe, We can’t grow when we are in our safety bubbles.⁠ ⠀

HELP ME ❤️ HELP OTHERS 🙏🏻 LEAVE YOUR TIP BELOW⁠⠀
⁠⠀
My own anxiety is wide-ranging. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Something as small as meeting someone for lunch or dinner and stopping 2 blocks away because I do not want to be the first person sitting down by myself.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The feeling of having to sit around playing with my phone all by myself messes with my head.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
👇🏻 3 Tips 👇🏻⁠⠀
⁠⠀
My top 3 tips for easing these anxiety feelings are⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(1) Stop / Take 10 deep breaths through my nose⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(2) Talk to myself (literally out loud), running over what is happening and what the worst things that can happen actually are⁠⠀
⁠⠀
(3) Putting myself into these areas makes me anxious ON PURPOSE ... over and over and over again until I get comfortble with them, and the action becomes normal which means less scary for me.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I'd love it if you shared one of your tips with the community in the comments.⁠⠀

I WENT TO MY FIRST THERAPY SESSION SINCE / FEBRUARY 15TH ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
☝🏻❤️☝🏻❤️☝🏻❤️☝🏻❤️☝🏻❤️☝🏻❤️☝🏻
⁠⠀
As I said in the video, I tried the zoom therapy session during the lockdown. Once the session was over, I clicked leave meeting and sat there and took a second to feel what was going on inside my head and chest.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Why I say chest, is that whenever 'hard' things come up in my days I first notice it in my chest.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
It sits heavy and feels tight.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
And when im in a therapy session these topics come up and that same tightness occurs... yet at the end of the session, I feel like the clamp is loosened.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The ability to talk through the situation and plan ahead for the next it will occur leaves me in a place of quiet confidence.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
THIS did not happen after the online zoom call.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
There was nothing.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So, I am VERY happy that I was able to get in yesterday!⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⁠⠀
👉🏻I'm curious, have you been doing zoom call therapy sessions and are they working for you?⁠⠀
