What is one thing you can always turn to when life gets hard? I’ve always been envious of religious individuals who can turn to a higher power, but I’m not religious and would love to hear other thoughts!
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Restlessness and Agitation
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Sexual abuse, suspected
Greek mythology. I have been obsessed with it for almost a decade and it’s my happy place. Just getting lost in the myths and culture of an ancient time makes me forget I exist 😅
I usually turn to journaling or art of any form 😊
I do diamond painting or talk to my fiance
I am a Christian and would love to talk to you if you ever are interested. That’s truly the only reason I’m still here after all the medical issues I’ve had. But with that I would agree with journaling for sure. And music; just make sure it’s music that won’t make you think in a dark way. I think it’s good if you can cry to it and get emotions out, but just be careful if you’re angry or really depressed you are careful about what you pick! 💙
Also, diaphragmatic breathing is big. And having a box of stuff prepared if you get in a really rough spot! For example, mine has a fuzzy blanket, pictures that make me smile, etc. It’s nice to have that to go to!
Sorry, just adding things as I think of them! Essential oils are great as well!
I turn to music! Creating, free styling for fun, and listening. Both are very therapeutic.
Maybe you're trying to reach God and have faith (you do!) and you are envious because you see what others "have" and you want it too! But you just can't seem to hear God's voice. Steven Furtick on YouTube can help to find God's voice, digging thru the Bible, and also just knowing that God loves you thru think and thin and you can always speak to God whenever wherever. Also trying out a church service, congregating with people is really helpful. I have really amazing days after attending a Sunday service. I found God thru my deepest struggles. I was alone with myself going thru a really realllllly tough night after leaving an abusive ex and I had so much worry in my brain I didn't know what to do with it. It was extreme man. It sucked, at 4 am. Then I had no other choice but to give it to God and I felt the presence and the fear had lifted right out of me. I always cling to faith when it's the last resort.. but it's the best resort ;) ;). So I try to thank God everyday for everything I have and how far I've come. Good luck on your faith journey!
