but hadn't done the homework yet and I still haven't looked at it now that I have until next Tuesday. Feel very stuck in a rut and dismayed that my 'breakthrough phase' was so short-lived. I'm also stueggling with texting people back I get like this

When people just tell you 'It's OK' and you don't feel that way, it can lead to feeling invalidated. Make sure then, in those situations that you self-validate. 'I am feeling X and that is OK/it is normal to feel that way in this situation.'.

Give yourself permission to experience each emotion fully, even the painful ones. To process and move through emotions, we must first accept them, non-judgementally, allow ourselves to feel them without berrating ourselves, trying to repress those

emotions or just wish we weren't going through that experience. But especially remember: don't forget to validate yourself and YOUR emotional experience. It is not anyone else's experience to say how you are feeling or how you SHOULD be feeling.

Cry sometimes it helps to get your emotions out and then empty. It is better than anxiety. Maybe bad advice but still...Wish you to see the bright side of life)
