Too good to be true

Even if you're suddenly happy, the trick is to hold on to it otherwise it doesn't matter. Which is an ongoing battle for me

Hey you💕

Hey you! Yes you. I hope you are able to find some peace today. Even for a moment. I hope you are able to enjoy some sunshine, breathe some fresh air and enjoy the stillness of time as you listen to the birds and trees. You are alive my friend. You are here for a purpose and your journey is your own. Life is of balance and duality..there can’t be light without darkness. So I know the feeling of anguish, feeling hopeless, like your going crazy, like you can breathe and that nothing matters. I know it hurts. I feel it so often and I still feel it now. But there can’t be darkness without light either. I also feel an abundance of love I have to offer, compassion and empathy and passion. Whatever you are struggling with just know that things can get better..through self reflection, compassion, love, rest and support things can and will get better. Just hold on to the notion that you are more powerful than you feel. An event triggers a thought which produces an emotion which leads to a reaction. Pinpoint the thought when triggered slow down and process it and respond instead of react. Choose how you will respond. Don’t feed into those negative thinking traps. This has helped me immensely to catch myself before I spiral or panic. Easier said than done and it takes practice and self reflection. Ask yourself why that thought and emotion came up for you. Explore your initial responses to your triggers and try to gain a new perspective on them. You are resilient and so am I, we survive a near constant battle within ourselves and with life. You are strong and more powerful than you know. I know nothing I say can take away your hurt or difficult situations life throws but I hope maybe anything I said could give you a tool or new way of looking at things or just know you aren’t alone. It’s hard and I don’t always practice what I preach. It’s difficult but be gentle with yourself and I hope you find some peace today..even for just a moment. Love and light to you 💕

Got my hopes up for no reason

I'm so tired of getting hurt the second I decide to trust someone. 😮‍💨 Not really expecting a response or anything I'm just depressed and don't really know where else to say something

I think I'm done.

Why do I keep trying? I only get the same results over and over... disappointment, frustration and pain. Yet I still put myself out there only to know deep down that it will end the same way. Why do some people not care about hurting others? I'm just tired... so damn tired.

Check on your friends

These last 2/3 days i have been in a terrible head space. I havent talked to anyone, havent been to work, hell i cant play a smiple video game with my daughter. Im so emotional. a song, tv show, movie scene, even the tone of someones voice bring me to tears. When i tried to open up i got told dont worry your strong you will get through this. I know im strong but sometimes i need to be ok feeling weak. I need aomeone to be there for me. Help me get my strength back so i cant fight another day. Check on your strong friends let them know its ok to open up and not be ao strong sometimes. Just be there for them. Idk anyway i hope you have a blessed day thanks for listening to me for a minute

How do you cope with depression days?

I can feel my depression getting bad again.. I feel stuck, lonely, abandoned. It's hard to get outta bed, because I cant find a good reason except that I have to feed my cats. I can't understand why I even keep showering..

How do you feel happy again when you're down so low you are hardly surviving. How do you get your personality back after been through trauma for so many years? I feel broken.

Words I am waiting to hear

There are words I am waiting to hear these past few weeks. I am actually going through a lot that I am not showing physically at all. I act fine. I know people can't be there for me all the time or to listen to me (even if they are saying they'll be always there for me). I know this is a safe place for me to share my thoughts. I've been jobless for 2 years.. everyone at my house is always shouting at me. Small things that I wasn't able to do right, I am being lashed out at. Maybe they're frustrated that I am the eldest daughter, but I am a good-for-nothing adult. I couldn't even share financially. I am actually thinking if it would be best for everyone if I am not around anymore. Maybe, they'll have one less mouth to feed... I am just holding on because of my pets. Of course also my family, but sometimes I just feel like a maid/stranger to them. I also don't have friends I can talk to deeply. I really do have a problem ain't I? Sorry that my post is long..
