    this isn’t the best, but i tend to gravitate towards weed lol. it makes me feel so much calmer and helps me forget about whatever is going on.

    i turn to an “it is what it is” attitude so aggressively that i just let myself be numb. it isn’t always the healthiest thing, but i get so overwhelmed if i don’t push it down that i kind of need to act like it isn’t happening in order to function

    I like naval ravikant’s idea of “you’re the main character in this exciting movie”. You narrate it. Like “and this is the part where she falls back and figures out how to bounce back” etc

    Sit and process all of my emotions. Let myself feel everything. You don’t wanna bury your emotions or run from them because it’ll catch up to you. Try journaling. It’s helped me immensely. Seeing my progress from when I started to now has helped changed how I view myself and my life exponentially.

    Probably to cry, breakdown, stop working. I cannot process immediately. I cannot function.

    I watch true crime to get my mind off of negative things(which sounds backwards). I love listening to stories it takes alot of stress off of me. So maybe if you don’t like true crime you can try an audio book or listening to your favorite podcast.

    Thank you guys for all the comments. I've actually done most of these, dabbled in smoking. I wanna get into maybe micro dosing with mushrooms

    My initial reaction is to hide. I often find myself nesting when I’m stressed or anxious. Once I recognize that I’m overwhelmed I try to take time to sit with my emotions and feel whatever I need to. Or, if I’m really busy, I sometimes end up just “shelving” my emotions/anxiety with the thought that I’ll come back and let myself feel later. That habit definitely isn’t the healthiest but sometimes you just have to get through a busy day. It’s been a long process of learning when and how to take time for my mental health.

    escapism is definitely a frequent flyer for me. it’s got the gold card and everything. it for sure depends on the circumstance, but i like to think of it as the climax of my coming of age piece. i’ll turn to weedz, writing, or just sobbing to music. anything that takes my mind away from the current reality of what’a happening. if it’s a really bad day, i’ll go numb. i don’t recommend this process to anyone, but i digress. hope everyone’s doing their best today (whatever that is for you) !! :))

    Honestly I used to run and hide but now I’m getting better at standing my ground. I went through a lot so instead of running away I now hold my ground and fight. It’s something that my anxiety hates but is helping. I learned that if I take things head on for me it feels better. So if I get something unexpected I breathe, smile, and keep going.
