I'mma have to ask everyone to take this to the top. Rain upvotes! Please. Thank you.
That's why I love the internet. You can ask the stupidest or most inappropriate questions and it's more than likely that : 1- someone has already asked the same question or 2- someone will gladly give you an answer. At the same time there will always be that someone who will bash you for anything you might say or do (too ugly, too pretty, too fat, too skinny, etc).
To find out more about the internet’s beloved project A Safe Place Inside your Head, which currently has 773k followers on Instagram, we reached out to the creators behind it. We spoke with Tanner Hamilton, the CEO at A Safe Place Inside Your Head, who said that he and his mom Joanne “created this non profit in honor of my brother who passed away from suicide.”
Hamilton added that “We wanted to raise awareness around his death and for his memory to live on through helping others.” He is the original founder of the non-profit and brought Joanne into the project later on.
Going through hard times definitely didn't make me stronger. It made me sadder and a lot more fragile and took away a lot of my faith in things.
When asked how the creator of A Safe Place Inside Your Head would best describe the audience who follows their page, Tanner said: “it is a group of like-minded people who want a community where they do not feel alone in their thoughts. We talk about the ugly side of mental health in a relatable way.”
The success of A Safe Place Inside Your Head has to do with relatable memes that hit close to home for many people browsing online. “We make some, we get some from the internet and meme publishers who want to support the cause,” Tanner said when asked how they select content to share on the page, “It is a group effort,” he added.
I will admit that when my depression was at its lowest (besides suicide attempt). I didn't brush my teeth, brush my hair or showered in over 2 weeks. It was all just too hard.
Why does his expression match that statement perfectly. Lol. Good on you eagle.
I remember mom picking me up early from school in 4th grade to go see the 1st Star Trek movie. Still one of the best school memories, ever.
I wish social anxiety was an excuse. It has ruined so much of my life.
Me looking into the mirror: "This is all YOUR fault!"
"You need to work harder". "You need to give up on the lattes". "You need to .............."
I just felt a weight drop onto my shoulders when I read this.
I needed people who actually cared about me and wouldn't ditch me on the playground for someone else and leave me alone without any friends for the rest of the year at the drop of a hat
This post is about me and I accept it....it's true. P.S. I'm not a doctor, my parents are still disappointed.
I felt this to my very core. Not to mention the loss of sleep over the associate anxiety.
Sometimes I question myself if I’m a toxic person. I may hurt others without realizing it. I really want to change to be a better person
One time when I was at my lowest I was driving around and contemplating where to park and potentially take my own life. An older gentleman was walking down the back road I was on with his wife and he turned and smiled at me with the most genuine smile I'd seen. His wife turned and did the same and they both waved. That couple saved my life by just showing me a moment of genuine humanity by smiling. Guilt was what drove me to want to die. This post made me remember this.
As though you had a choice to be depressed when in reality you were having very serious mental health issues.
I did this too. I survived three attempts that night.
My mom says she had anxiety but I don't think she understands how serious mine really is
Pretending not to be depressed is exhausting and then one day the energy it takes isn't there
I'm so very appreciative and grateful that I have a hubby like that. He has dealt with so much with me and my depression. He has supported me and loved me throughout everything.
Yeah I realized I burnt out at the beginning of the year but I'm still going and (sort of) fine!
I cope with my suicidal thoughts by planning out super elaborate suicide methods i could never possibly pull off.
That's me at the moment. I'm also still trying to get into a good routine now I'm studying.
Thoughts like this coming to mind, At 3 am in the night
Our generation is the one that's dealing with wake up calls for everything that has been wrong. We're fed up with toxic people, toxic masculinity, homophobia, gender discrimination, glass ceilings. I think it's a hard time to live but it's a historic time to watch and enjoy.
I'll also lose a lot of sleep...so its best we discuss it right now.
This is what happens when you grow up being told to suppress your emotions and never to ask for help or let on that you're hurting because that's "weak". It's so bloody sad. :(
Lol I never thought about that before, good on you washing machine. Next time that'll surely make me chuckle.
