An open letter to the fatherless this father's day: I see you. Not every father was a dad. I know this myself. You are not alone. Let's not celebrate the people who hurt us. Rather, let us celebrate those in our life that helped us when a father should have. Celebrate where you are in life despite what they did. Celebrate family even if family is a group of good friends. I am here with you. You are not alone. #fatherless #fatherlessfathersday #nodad #notdead #notdad #celebratefamily #mermaidofmemories #cptsdwarrior #cptsdandme #cptsd #herewithyou

Tomorrow is the last day of voting! Please vote for me to be the Atlantic region @finfunmermaid ambassador! I would make a good ambassador because I have worked with finfun tails exclusively for my mermaiding classes. Many people are talking about diversity. So here's what makes me diverse: I'm Puerto Rican, Italian, and a bit Asian. I have an associate degree in musical theatre and I'm working on my batchelor's in marine biology with a minor in ASL. I also am a #cptsdwarrior. CPTSD /PTSD is very underrepresented outside of veterans. While veterans do get CPTSD and PTSD, most people get CPTSD from childhood trauma. Either way, I want to be a voice for those like me who never stepped foot onto war grounds but have fought a battle. #cptsdawarenessmonth #cptsdwarrior #cptsdandme #cptsdawareness #awareness #mentalhealth #june #purpleandteal #ambassador #ihope #pleasevote #thankyou

for day 9 of #positivemermay, I wanted to share a video of me playing the ukulele. this is a song I have written. there are mistakes left in the footage because the point of the song is that no one is perfect but you have to find your peace from within and not what others say. I hope you all enjoy it! (all rights to the song belong to me) #mermaidkita #mermay #mermaidlife #song #singing #ukulele #whatdoyouthink #workinprogress #wip #mermaidofmemories #cptsdworrior #cptsdandme #cptsd

For day 6 of #positivemermay , I wanted to touch on CPTSD. Now it may not seem like a light happy positive thing to talk about, but may is national mental health awareness month and I want to break the stigma. I have CPTSD. No I never served in the armed forces. I hope that one day I can become a voice for those who are like me and for children who are fighting a war. My goal as a mermaid is to reach out and make people smile. This may seem like such a small thing but I know how hard life can be. And sometimes a little smile, even if for a moment, could mean the world to someone who is struggling. So, as you go through the day, I want you to think about what other people could be going through and act in kindness. Try to make some smiles today. šŸ„° #cptsd #cptsdwarrior #cptsdandme #mermaidofmemories #addthemagic #makethemsmile #justasmile #smilebright #mermay #mermay2019 #mersona #mymersona #mymermaidlife #mermaidlife #reallifemermaid #professionalmermaid #mermaid (@mermaidkita) #mermaidkita #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthawarenessmonth

For day 5 of #positivemermay , I would like to share my official mersona script (typos and all. Because not even I am perfect). This is the base write up for my character. She is based off of my CPTSD and my actual life and incorporates it as well. This is Kita in her true form. For birthday parties I tend to just play the mermaid half as it is usually all they want to know about. Let me know what you think! #mermay #mermay2019 #mersona #mymersona #mymermaidlife #mermaidlife #reallifemermaid #professionalmermaid #mermaid (@mermaidkita) #mermaidofmemories #mermaidkita #addthemagic #cptsdwarrior #cptsdandme #cptsd

I love the symbolism of ā€œthe Phoenixā€, rising from the ashes. It marks strength and devotion for overcoming and change.

We have to accept ourselves as imperfect! Perfectly imperfect. The past no longer exists, don't look back unless it's to become better. Dream your dreams, but don't be anxious of the future, it hasnt happened yet. Just be who you are right now. As you are, perfectly imperfect. You are beautiful! Your soul knows what needs, just listen, and be. ā¤ #authenticself #yourtruth #adultsurviourofchildabuse #adultsurvivor #slaying #slayingdemons #selflove #healthyself #unfuckwithable #savagesoul #knowyourworth #dissociativeidentitydisorder #dissociation #alteregoĀ  #mentalhealthawareness #wildone #ownyourstory #cptsdandme #cptsd #nosurrender #whatiamnot #stoptheviolenceĀ  #childhoodtrauma #healingisfuckingmessy #youareworthit #builtforthisshit #indianprincess #humoroushealing

šŸ“· @cptsdandme - a snap from a long walk up the mountains in the Czech Republic. In fact the very mountain ranges that #sigmundfreud was born in. šŸ„¼ Todayā€™s thoughts: Itā€™s been a tricky road this far but believe me, only ā€˜goodā€™ will come of it. . As I navigate my personal journey, I find myself often unpacking an artillery of emotions. . On one hand, Iā€™m tired, frustrated, deeply sad, resentful, fearful, anxious, hurt, lonely, infuriated, insecure, irritable, enraged, disappointed, disillusioned. And many more. . On the other hand, I find myself feeling a new range of emotions that inspire me to keep going. . I feel proud, optimistic, amused, excited, relieved, stimulated, triumphant, eager, cheerful, moved and inspired. . Before my journey began, I found myself, more often than not, overwhelmed with the former. . Having now, the strength and new perspective. I spend more time in the latter and whilst I canā€™t yet say Iā€™m thriving. I can say Iā€™m more than surviving... finally! . Hang in the peeps. It gets better. šŸ’ŖšŸ˜˜ ā€¢ ā€¢ ā€¢ ā€¢ ā€¢ ā€¢ ā€¢ ā€¢ #complexptsd #cptsdawareness #warriors #ptsd #cptsd #learningtolive #anxiety #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #mentalhealth #quotes #instaquote #wordsofwisdom #wordstoliveby #jj_emotional #ptsdsurvivor #cptsdwarriors #cptsdwarrior #quotestoliveby #quotesoftheday #quotesdaily #depression #cptsdandme #thisishowicopewithcptsd #complexptsdrecovery #stress #mentalhealthawareness #jj #dailyquotes

Maybe I'm too much of this or not enough of that. Maybe my wild ways are too intimidating, maybe I get loud, say what's on my mind or get too lost in deep thought...but that's me, my heart is no home for cowards and if you don't have the spine to stand next to me, then slither away like the snake you are and find a mouse to devour because I eat snake for dinner! #heathens #wildwoman #takemeasiam #morethanenough #bymysideorinmyway #nocowards #slaying #slayingdemons #selflove #healthyself #unfuckwithable #savagesoul #knowyourworth #wildone #ownyourstory #cptsdandme #cptsd #nosurrender #whatiamnot #youareworthit #builtforthisshit #indianprincess #humoroushealing
