I’m a pretty private person myself.
I have to say that finding the courage to say something- anything- and not keeping it to yourself is admirable.
Sorry if I sounded cheesy though.
I’ll just leave the quote. Sometimes when it gets hard I like to look at it.

@Willowbean , it’s fine if this isn’t a part of the therapy thread. She’s going through a really hard time and it’s fine if she wants to make a thread to talk about it and let her feelings out, because no one should have to keep those feelings bubbled up inside. Depression is a demon.
Also, please don’t take offense to how she responded, she’s just upset. I would be upset if someone told me that as well when I just made a post talking about how I’m feeling and why it’s hurting me inside.

@fcukforcookies My PM is always open if you want to talk, no one should have to go through this alone :heart:

Definitely not going to tell ya to talk to someone about it because it’s not always that you can get the right person, ya know? And it’s no one’s fault because they can’t understand what they can’t.

I had my own… phase and I feel like I am almost out of it. Of course you can never be completely fine but I am as good as I could be, I think so I’ll suggest what helps me. It might or might not help you but trying won’t hurt!

  • Always be open to laughter. Like sometimes even if you just can’t laugh, force yourself. You’ll laugh forcefully for days and it will be weird but eventually you’ll be so used to laughing and smiling, even smallest things will be enough to take your mind off everything.

  • Try to be, like, careful who you tell about these things cause ya know, some people just pretend to understand when in reality they are completely blank.

  • Surround yourself with crazy and funny people as much as you can! That’s what will get you through your bad days. You know, that kind of people that can make you laugh and smile after a bad day or lift your mood always? Keep them for yourself! Even if you are being clingy, just keep close to them!

  • This will sound like a weird advice but when I felt low, I kept myself busy with everything. If you just wanna skip the ‘I am being sad and lonely’ part, all you gotta do is try new things and activities and keep your mind busy but know that this won’t always help you because one day, it’s all gonna come crashing down.

  • Oh and there’s this habit that always makes me feel better. When you feel particularly sad about an event or something, write it down and then tear it up. Do it once, twice, thrice until you feel like you can smile again! And trust me, eventually, you will!

  • Lastly, my dad signed me up for therapy after what happened with me and it helped me a lot. Like seriously, if you can talk to a professional, trust me on this, there can’t be anything better than that.

And above all, I am here if you gotta talk. I know we don’t know each other but who says we cant change that?

Yes! Most of them are so normal things and I felt silly myself for not realising it before but when I did, I wrote it all down lmao so I would be able to remind others and myself whenever needed.

If it helped even in the slightest, I’d be really happy! Everyone is going to tell you to talk to someone but sometimes that’s not enough! No one is going to tell you what you yourself do know, keep smiling till it comes to you so naturally that you won’t even have to think about it to actually do it.

This might seem like helpful at the time, but it’s one of the things I did, and regret, cause I gotta live with them now, and watch how people react on them.
Anyway thank u, ur words might not be comforting for most I guess, but they are sobering.

U didn’t hon) Being mentally sober is better than comforted.

Well, we haven’t met yet and I’m sad that we are meeting like this but I want to tell you that you can always pm me! I don’t know if I’m a therapist or not as Flora said but still I can try my best to atleast make you feel slightly ok or I can totally listen to you and try my best to help you reduce your burden (temporarily atleast!) :heart:

All of ya’ll are so sweet for helping her out. :sleepy: This is the side of the community we need to show more of. Inshallah, it’ll be like this sooner or later. But one problem I have is you popping of at Willow for asking a simple question. You could have been more nicer. Being rude doesn’t show you as the better person in the situation. You could have just answered and be done with it. Either way, I hope you the things people have said helped. It might be hard but with your strong attitude and will-power, I think you got it. :heart:

I feel the same. Don’t harm yourself please. I bit myself and it did not make me feel any better. We’re in this together, you’re not alone. I guess just survive until a better time like I’m trying too…

Unless you abuse someone, you’re a good person.

Edit: This is a specific topic, I’m wondering why does it break the guidelines?
