Burnout update 

Supper is a Marmite, processed cheese and Twiglet sandwich. Don't judge me.

Burn-out 

A lot of #mentalhealth therapy modalities like CBT and ACT talk about "Acceptance". This can be confusing or difficult to accept for many as we are accustomed to equate acceptance to surrender. Well, it is not!

Acceptance = Acknowledging something exists. This is good.
Surrender = Believing nothing can be done about it. Not so much

The following graphic depicts very clearly What is acceptance.

@Gina A colleague just bought me an early Xmas present of a infosec book he'd had recommended to him by a woman he met at a conference who worked in the cybersecurity sector. Of course my reaction was "lol, right". ๐Ÿ˜‰

This says a lot about the 60โ€™s 

Less Obvious Factors That Lead To #mentalhealth Issues:

- Saying yes to everything
- Trying to fix/ save everyone
- People pleasing
- Putting others needs above yours
- Defining a "successful life" based on another's/ society's expectations

Your mental health matters. Prioritize it

@rnd I'd still rather chew my own testicles off than give one moment of my time to Chris Roberts after the debacle that is Star Citizen. ๐Ÿ˜

I think at some point this weekend I will have a good, healthy cry. I'll try to make it as manly as possible, I promise.

(I won't)

@voidspace It's the Goddess Chant, typically done in Wiccan circles (pun intended). ๐Ÿ˜

I find it's quite a useful mantra to ground me (and gods know, I need that this week!)

I Have Had #mentalhealth Issues: I'm not seeking attention or sympathy.

I'm sharing because:
โ€ข Many suffer in silence and I want those people to know that they aren't alone.
โ€ข There's times I haven't been easy to be around - I'm sorry, but that're most difficult for me too.
โ€ข The more I've hid my "inner world", the more distant I've felt from everyone.
โ€ข More people should talk about it, share and appreciate the "real" version of us not the"filtered" version of social media. #endthestigma

#fediverse, I need your #help!

I work for Mama Cash, an amazing NGO that supports women, girls, trans and intersex rights. We have an environmental justice portfolio that funds those that suffer the most from climate change. Unfortunately we're almost out of funds, so we're trying to raise at least 20K.

My goal is to raise 500 euro. If you can, please help by donating: for.mamacash.org/fundraiser/Gi

The largest donation will receive a personalized gift from me ๐ŸŽ‰
