Follow Friday #31: @makedaisychains helpt je door een mindere dag

We scrollen allemaal graag door onze Instagram-feed. Om niet depri te worden van de zoveelste influencer die gratis in het Hilton mag logeren, focussen we ons het liefst op kwalitatieve content. Elke vrijdag schotelen we je een account voor waar je inspiratie uithaalt voor je eigen gram. Deze week: @makedaisychains.

Soms zit het allemaal even tegen en voor je dan teruggrijpt naar een *inspirational quote* of tien moet je eens door de feed van dit account scrollen. Met toffe tekeningen, simpele acties en heel veel katten(tekeningen) maakt @makedaisychains je dag weer een beetje beter.

Just reposting this because I really like it. I believe you. [image description: hand drawn digital image of a tabby brown cat resting its head on the side of a pink table. Above there is a speech bubble which says “I believe you”. The background is an aqua colour.] #ibelieveyou #metoo #cat #mentalhealthrecovery

@makedaisychains

@makedaisychains is een mooi voorbeeld van hoe er op Instagram ook plek is voor ernst, als je het maar goed inpakt. Met veel roze tinten en kattentekeningen bijvoorbeeld, want wie wordt daar niet blij van, denken wij dan.

De vrouw achter het account is de Londense illustratrice Hannah Daisy. Ze zet zich in voor mentale gezondheid (denk bijvoorbeeld aan depressies en anxiety), voor chronische ziekte en voor de LGBTQ-community.

Ooit kampte ze zelf met psychische problemen, nu put ze uit die ervaring inspiratie voor haar posts. En terwijl ze de wereld een beetje beter probeert te maken op Instagram, is ze in het echte leven ook nog psychotherapeut.

Boundaries are important and a life long navigation of learning what you need. [image description: a hand drawn illustration of a white cat face in a circle of purple. The outside circle is beige and has “be like a cat. Cute with boundaries” written in it. ] #mentalhealthrecovery

One of my oldest but favourite drawings. It’s a reminder that sometimes people may appear lazy, but are in fact sad and depressed (or have an invisible illness, disability and/or pain). If you see this drawing, it’s by me. . . . [image description: hand drawn digital illustration of a purple teardrop. Around it is a pink banner which says “sad not lazy”. The background is solid sky blue. ] #sadnotlazy #mentalhealthrecovery

I did a drawing for #internationalmensday , I mean everyday is men’s day ?‍♀️ but at least I get to use today to put this message out there. The is the worst thing to say ever. Men out there, please don’t say this, what does it even mean? Just means don’t talk about your feelings and what you’re struggling with and young men have the highest suicide rate, even more so if you’re gay and/or trans. Shoutout to any trans guys reading this, you’re seen on international men’s day ????. (This is drawn from the meme that was going round a while ago) . . . [image description: hand drawn digital illustration of two cats. A brown cat has his paw over a ginger cats mouth. The brown cat is saying “man up” and the ginger cat is saying “when you say “man up” you actually mean “shut up””. ] #mentalhealthrecovery

#boringselfcare

Hannah Daisy lanceerde ook de hashtag #boringselfcare, om de échte betekenis van het nogal muf klinkende ‘zelfzorg’ terug te claimen. Zelfzorg is niet iets waar alleen sukkels nood aan hebben, zelfzorg is er voor iedereen en het zit in hele kleine dingen. Een bad nemen bijvoorbeeld, of een hele middag Netflix’en in plaats van mensen te zien. #goals

Went to bed early #boringselfcare (am aware some people can’t get out of bed/can’t leave bed for many reasons or this is challenging for homeless people or people without secure housing. ) [image description: hand drawn illustration of a phone. Oknthe screen it says 10pm with an alert saying “go to bed”. The phone has a picture of a daisy in it. To the right it says “went to bed early”. The background is lilac. There is a circular border and is dark blue. Below it says “boring self care”. ] #boringselfcare

Survived a day at work. [visual description: hand drawn illustration. a white person with a shaved sides of the head and some purple hair on top sits at a desk resting their head on their hands. They have their eyes closed and look content. They have a green cardigan on, light pink shirt and a mid tone pink tie. This person is Deaf and wears a cochlear implant on their left ear. The desk is brown and has a pen resting on the table by their right hand. On the desk it says “SURVIVED A DAY AT WORK”. The background is yellow. There is a circular border which is dark purple. Underneath it says “BORING SELF CARE”. ] #boringselfcare

Again this is a really complex task requiring a certain level of physical ability, knowledge of how to do it, access to a washing machine, somewhere to dry it, motivation to take it down and a place to put items away! Plus having enough money to do so. What do you think? [image description: a hand drawn illustration of a washing line. There are a pair of pink knickers, a green towel and a yellow sock. The back ground is blue. It says “did my laundry, took it down and put it away”. The border is circular and pink. Underneath it says “boring self care”] #boringselfcare

Met heel eenvoudige tekeningen laat ze zien dat je best wel eens wat vaker trots mag zijn op de kleine dingen die je bereikt, zelfs op een mindere dag. En: dat het helemaal oké is om niet altijd de leukste, vrolijkste, meest sociale versie van jezelf te zijn. Valt dat even mee!

Yeah it’s ok to be angry. As a society, anyone who isn’t a cis man is socialised to internalise the anger we feel, almost to erase it as if what happened to us didn’t happen. (Whatever that was and include trauma as well as structural oppression ). Anger feeds into depression, anxiety and other mental health problems. It’s ok to be angry. PS I make a lot of drawings when I’m angry. #boringselfcare was borne out of anger.(Obviously cis men struggle with anger too) . . [image description: hand drawn illustration of a thin person of colour with mid tone to dark skin, a straight black bob hairstyle with some white flecks in it. The person has their arms crossed and looks angry. They are holding a daisy. To the left it says “it’s actually ok to be angry”. There is a red circular border. ] #anger #angry #angermanagement #mentalhealthrecovery
