Feeling sad and alone most of my life was the inspiration to create these unique illustrations. Struggling with depression since I was a teen it took me years to unlearn a lot of ideas that I was socialised to believe, many of which were negatively impacting my mental health. I'm still figuring out how to be alive in this world but sharing my thoughts and realisations with others has proven to be a very rewarding process. The more I learn about how to live and love more fully the more I like to share my thoughts and realisations with my online community Recipes For Self Love. I've been running my Instagram account for about two years now and have built a following of over 445k people from around the world. I want to continue growing my online community while spreading awareness and truths that I found to have helped me a lot.

Self preservation! Often in life one needs to put oneself first, and there's nothing wrong with this. You need to look after yourself and protect yourself, and this doesn't mean you're a selfish or bad person

This one gets along with the other one about work. Only people who truly love you will recognize your self-sacrifice, so don't do it for others. It's really not worthy and it will be seen as the opposite of what you wanted to achieve.

This one is true. I'd just add that, sometimes, it's your non-nice side that protects you from harm (both psychological and physical), and from people who misinterpret your niceness. You really gotta learn to see who deserves your nice side and in which situations.

I agree with everything so far, I even agree with this to an extent. I do worry that the ones with this sort of message can be taken out of context. "No Longer Healthy" or "toxic" (seen above) -- that could be something where there is a definite need to remove a person from your life. I can also see people using this as a way to justify not dealing with things too though... and not only that, but not giving the person any chance or opportunity to work on things. I guess I read these and I am immediately like "yeah, definitely" and then I think about friends, and if they thought this way about me, and it kind of terrifies me lol

The problem is that women get raped/abused and men and boys get raped/abused also. The commun person who abuses most women, men and boys/girls are : MEN. It is a men problem and we should address it as such. We should help men and try and find out why there is so much abused perpetrated by men and try to address the situations. It's a real problem and I am sure there are good solutions. We just need to stop blaming the women and telling them what to do to avoid this situation. NO. We should help the men stop these behaviours.
