Re: Good Morning!

Hey @WIP ,

 

Day 3 in anything is the hardest. It's the make or break point.

 

I have confidence in you that you will make it and rock it! 

I've spent a day in Eildon, Victoria, with my fellow-adventurers while on our virtual tour sounds Australia. Join us on our virtual walk around Australia! 

How'd the footy go? Also, were you able to take Levi out? The Melboune weather was gorgeous today!

 

 Waiting to hear from you!

Re: Good Morning!

Hi @BPDSurvivor 

Sounds as though you had a lovely day exploring.

 

As soon as I opened my eyes this morning, I felt it was going to be a struggle of a day. Managed to take Levi to the dog park, but all I could notice was that I was the only person on their own - everyone was in couples, friends or family. I didn't even crack a smile watching Levi race around and have a ball, playing with other dogs.

Came home, broke down and have been in a bad way since.

Thanks for the encouraging words that I will make it - I wish I shared your optimism. 
Day 3 wasn't the hardest last time, it merely went downhill steeper from then. Guess I'll see what happens this time round.

@BPDSurvivor I don't have a life. I merely exist where I count down the hours every day till it ends & hope with all my might, that I'll be able to sleep & get some relief from reality for awhile.


Catch you later, X

Re: Good Morning!

@WIP ! Hold your horses! Day 3 is the hardest in that it is the make or break day! 

Today, being day 3, is the day when you can try something different. In the past, your day 3 was when you spiralled downhill. Knowing that, how about make this day 3 a day where you will work against your comforts and reach out instead?

 

I can empathise with you when you went and saw families, couples etc at the dog park. I have felt that way before, but then later realised, 'if I don't enjoy my own company, how can I ask anyone to enjoy my company?' This was a turning point. I reflected, and realised I needed to demonstrate self-compassion for myself, and be satisfied in myself. Now, I'm not worried whether I'm with someone or not, because I am content in myself. I bring that contentment with me whether I am with someone or not. Secure relationships and bonds may be what you desire, which is a beautiful thing. Now, you need to work on where you currently are, and determine the stepping stones or bridge to get to that ideal you. 

Remember, I am not a super human being...I am very ordinary. Yet I am proof that coming out of depression is possible. If only I had a comparison to show you. 

Hold on tight my fellow-soldier and friend!

There is light.

Re: Good Morning!

Thanks @BPDSurvivor , I'm trying to hold on, but when you wake up feeling very unstable again it's difficult to.

 

I wasn't going to reply, but sorry, you've hit a nerve with your advice on being satisfied with myself.  I don't like myself, I haven't for a very long time.  And I understand why I am on my own, because I'm unlikable - I don't like who I am, so why would anyone else, I don't expect them too.

I don't like being around myself (I struggle to look at myself in the mirror).  I hate being a depressed, anxious, negative person!!!! And I have tried to get well, ask for help from medical professionals & been let down a lot along the way.  Having meaningful relationships feels like something I will never achieve. At this point in time, I'm just trying to get through the day and find it almost impossible. 
It's great you are a proof that coming out of depression is possible. I'm really, really happy for you. I don't hold hope that I'll be so fortunate based on history and the reality of each day being excruciatingly painful. It's not a life, but just an existence.

 

I'll be laying low today. I'm too negative, unstable frame of mind and not fair to dump my crap here.
