Exactly what I'm doing. It's bloody hard work. 😊 so much easier to just throw an emoticon out there. If only real life were like that.
Big hugs x
One step at the time. Make yourself a cup of tea first
Certainly tea as a first step.
Extra hugs for our Lydia. I've been feeling sorta the same these days, ever since I've crashed from my hypomania. Let's take care of ourselves and get all better soon.
Do you put milk in your tea?
Ahaha well put, my panda friend! I love it. I know it's not funny. I just want that phrase up on my wall stat :)
We can't always understands our emotions, especially when they are telling us different things. Best to just feel your feelings and try not to get caught up in them. It's tough when you realize your pain causes you to inflict it on others. Good job!
I mean good job recognizing it. Obviously not good job lashing out, but that's why we work on these things. ☺️ You got this, Lydia.
I'm right there with ya on the lashing out due to insecurities. It really sucks. And the whirl & swirl of emotions is SO exhausting! I'm glad you got to spend time with your grandpa. Cherish it! 💖
I just wish I wouldn't feel so worthless time and time again, as if I'm not existing and no one needs to comment on my texts. They probably don't need to, I just need my need of approval met. I don't think anyone is ignoring me, but why do
I feel like I'm being ignored? Am I that desperate for attention? Apparently. I hate this part of myself so much. I'm extremely lonely, and the internet won't change this, so why can't I just be content with listening to and supporting other people.
How do people deal with their triggers? Mine aren't even that big or bad, but I still don't know what to do about them. Helpless, hopeless, crying.
Maybe go for a drink with someone from yoga after class. Or same thing with a colleague or student. Do more irl stuff, push through these feelings. You are a valuable person who is a good help. Accept where you are, and accept that'll change, because
It's good to let out the emotion, as long as it makes you do something about it later. So let it out, then have a cuppa tea and make small plans... You don't always need one big plan, because you are putting all your eggs in one basket.
John has some very good advise here. Just try it and see how it goes.
I think you are AMAZING!! Be a little kinder to yourself. I know it's hard, but it's something I'm working on. If people aren't responding to you, they are either busy or not really that great of a friend. My opinion, of course. xx
Lacking in concentration and motivation, fleeing thoughts, missing words, unable to express myself the way I want to or even to put the finger on the real problem. Just aimlessly floundering through life without a concrete goal in my head.
Great Lydia. Have a great day.
If Miezer is anything like cats I've had he'll know you need a cuddle and stay with you all the time while you're there.
I miss my cat who used to literally live in my arms. A cat angel, he was. That's what the vet called him. He was a very sick kitty, though, and only lived for 8 years :( I still miss him. Maybe heaven is a place with all the cats we loved? :D
Why do you think that?
I hope you feel better soon!
Oh Lydia, keep going, you can finish uni and succeed at what you want to do. Keep going. Don't feel bad if you have a day off from things to deal with days like today.
I've been having similar problems recently. I've started to plan out my days to try to make myself feel less overwhelmed
Lol, quite recognisable! Nowadays I have a todo list for every day. Am only allowed to
Allowed to do useless thing when I have either a lunch break or everything is finished. Works wuite well for me
