anyone else feel like they self-sabotage their own recovery sometimes? i feel like im almost causing my depression at times.
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Chronic Generalized pain
Definitely can relate to this sometimes I feel like I am for sure
me too it's like I can't help doing the things I know makes it worse
Yes when I'm at my lowest of lows I'm usually easy to give up and just get swallowed up in my depression.
this is exactly how I feel too - its like i get exhausted with the performance of it so I just give in to it
I definitely self sabatoge I think in all areas of my life😥
I'm currently going through a breakup and exams and I've definitely made them both worse for myself so I get this
breakup and exams oh man "deep breaths" you got this
definitely, its almost like i feel better at my worst than being happier ya know? so i tend to cause myself to fall back into everything, even though it hurts
exactly! It feels like a performance to be happy, and I get so tired with it I fall back into it all because it feels natural
i force myself to get sad so i can relapse lol.the only way i can stop is by ignoring emotions and not thinking
I'm the same I need to completely shut off my brain most of the time :(
Ooh ooh I know this one because it was me for years. I used to do bad things as a coping mechanism and I lied to myself so I could keep doing them. You can stop, society really makes us make excuses. My best advice..... Just Stop
this is great advice, I've been really practicing holding myself accountable for my feelings and the things I do to make them worse and its definitely helping slowly!
Man me too like the people I’m around the places I go and other stuff your definitely not alone. But so sorry your also struggling you got this tho! ps im proud of you:)
thank you sm, I'm proud of you too :)
I don't think I've truly gotten over my mom's death, and that was almost 3 1/2 yrs ago. I'm angry with her for continuing to smoke even after watching her her own mom died from smoking. So I'm tucking those emotions away because I don't want to deal with them.
sorry about your loss, I'm also experiencing grief at the moment its so hard ❤️
yes it is. I wasn't ready for her to go.
I feel like this constantly. I have the want to get better. I’m around people who will help me. But I have the constant urge to ruin that. To runaway. Maybe I’m scared? I also have everything I need now to get a therapist but im just scared. So I get this feeling in a way.
I get this! I'm also so scared, I'm not even sure of what exactly, maybe the work involved? Or that it still won't be enough.
all. the. time. i quit therapy because i didn’t put the work in between the sessions. i want to get better, of course, i want to live a better life and be happier and not empty. but its just so hard. especially when you’ve lived that way for so long
its so hard to describe to someone who hasn’t experienced it, i think. because they’re just like why don’t you put the work in? dont you want to change? and it’s just not that easy
no I 100% get what you mean, its so hard to explain it to other people. What's helped me describe it, to others and myself, is in terms of a performance - putting work into it, changing, ect for the most part to me feels like a performance of being "well", and to have to do that 24/7 is exhausting, even if you want to do those things it wares you down, it's demanding.
