    How to cope with regret? Guilt or what if thoughts 💭?

    Recently going through a breakup, somewhat mutual but I brought up the fact that maybe we are going around in circles breaking up and getting back together, I had a bad panic attack/ crying I was stressed/ overwhelmed and they meant well to support me but were comparing me, saying I should be stronger, crying makes me weak etc, English isn’t their first language but they speak it well 🗣️, and I guess I was hurt because I know they meant well but it just made me feel more crappy and stigmatized, they kept going on and on and comparing me to other people etc. I know they loved me and were just concerned, but it sucks i feel regret though I feel in my gut it was problem for the best for both of us. But almost 3 years into a relationship
    It’s still hard to let go. I’m proud of myself for doing a lot better than I expected but it’s hard when you get those emotional breakdowns and are just overwhelmed by everything and life in general.

    I am scared as hell about someone. Had a dream about them a couple nights ago that they had a medical emergency and didn't make it. Then I realize they have been MIA for a week. Reached out but no acknowledgement which is unusual. I am crying. Been praying like hell. Trying to trust God. There's a song that came to mind and am striving to do this even though it is so hard to do.

    Even when the fight seems lost
    I'll praise You
    Even when it hurts like hell
    I'll praise You

    #Childhood #Trauma !!!

    Phew! I do not intend to offend anyone, but I believe in the Lord and he is using this TBI recovery time to uproot deep tiers of childhood trauma!!!👍!!!

    Hey, when you can cry about the hell you have walked through that IS a sign of being healed. And I shed a serious amount of tears today! The hardness is melting. A softening is occurring. Emotions ARE supposed to be expressed:

    When happy you smile.
    When hurt you cry.

    Being taught to not cry “or else I’ll give you something to cry about” is abuse, in my opinion. But communication is how you talk the tears away; using caring words and an expressed form of verbal compassion.

    To other adults who have been programmed to absorb abuse, as I was, I invite you to do yourself a favor: cry. It’s okay. ❤️!

    #tears are necessary.
    #Crying brings healing.

    Trigger warning* not sure if allowed to post I feel maybe I have some Bipolar condition as well as my anxiety

    I don’t think I actually am but sometimes I wonder, I know only a professional can diagnose me I think it’s just really bad highs and lows with life changes/ stressors etc. but it happens so often and during the week sometimes I don’t know if my extremes could be something else or not. Was just curious if others who know they have bipolar disorder or are officially diagnosed with it could explain a bit how it is for them? Thanks.

    I’ll seek a psychiatrist or doctor to evaluate
    Im only diagnosed with
    And depression etc

    Thanks appreciate any help.
    I think I’m just having a tough time right now and I just need to get some help which I’m setting up, but just wanted to hear from others who do struggle with other disorders bpd, ocd, anxiety, depression, or in particular bipolar.

    I’m pretty sure I’m having more than my one or two diagnosis but can’t tell what it is

    Thanks for any help, but I will seek an evaluation and get some help to confirm. #Bipolar #Diagnosis #Unsure #confused #struggling #Trying #Crying #panic #Doctor #Psychiatrist #Hope #help #Depression #Anxiety #MightyTogether

    #EatingDisorders #BulimiaNervosa

    I relapsed last Wednesday with my eating disorder. I’m struggling and not okay. Eating disorder recovery has been a lot harder this time. I have had a lot of emotions come up and crying just being one of them. Sometimes I just have to cry when everything is not okay. It may not get better overnight and recovery is not a straight line but I will get through this! #EatingDisorders #BulimiaNervosa #Depression #Anxiety #Crying #relaspe

    Do you find it easy or hard to cry?

    Crying is an enigma. We are literally born with the capacity to cry as it's our only way of getting our needs met. And some point we begin to be socialized to not cry because it makes others uncomfortable.

    But somehow some people manage to maintain the capacity to cry, both when they are happy and when they are sad or mad. While others, like myself, will avoid crying at all cost. I absolutely hate crying.

    True story: This weekend we were supposed to have a big event occur. Someone was put out by our asking them to accommodate us for 30 minutes. Before long I could feel a lump in my throat because this was really important to our future and I felt like I was stuck between making this person happy and doing what was right for myself. As per usual I swallowed my tears away and put that person's needs ahead of mine.

    Moral of the story is...I will always squash mySELF to accommodate others or hide how I really feel, especially if I'm sad or mad.

    Do you cry easily or do you also have trouble allowing yourself to cry? Share below.
