    Meaning

    I love Alan Watts. He has such a charming way of making fun of the mind and all the trouble we put ourselves through. Do you find yourself trying to get somewhere? Or maybe feel lost while trying to find meaning or an understanding of it all? Can it be done? And if it could be done, then what? There is, of course, nothing wrong with developing your life or having goals, but if it's causing anxiety, depression, or other challenges, it could be useful to reflect on why you think it's happening and why you think you have to continue. Have you ever realized that something you were doing served no purpose in your life and then decided to let it go? How great did you feel when you did?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    it's nothing personal

    So often, when bad things happen in our lives, we think it is happening deliberately to us, rather than it just happening. So often we take these events personally which really takes a toll on our mental health and out outlook on life. Please remember that good and bad things are happening to everyone all the time. We are all battling visible and invisible demons and showing the world our scars in various ways. Please don't let these events bring you down or take away your wholeness. Nothing outside has anything to do with who you are inside. I know this can be difficult at times, but does anyone have any advice for how to practice or be better?

    Reconnecting with other humans

    I’m going to an oddities and curiosities festival this weekend. I’ve missed being around people, so now that I’m vaccinated, attending events is important for rebuilding my mental health.

    How are you reconnecting with others during this time of transition?

    One year with Zoloft

    Today is my anniversary with antidepressants and wow, it's been a ride. I feel much better and have seen the positive effects: I've been less impulsive, more patient and can regulate my emotions quicker than I used to. I've learned that it's okay if my serotonin is store bought. #BPD #d Depression #a Anxiety #Z Zoloft

    We are little today. No words, just preverbal moans. Memories of utter helplessness, no way to fight back or protect my body, and being subjected to the horrific cruelness of the monsters masquerading as my human father and his friends. So today we eat good foods, hold our stuffed lambie and listen to Spa Music on Pandora. Later, some preschool cartoons on Kidoodle. SHE, had no say in what happened to HER. TODAY, SHE gets to choose what WE do. TODAY is all about HER, and what SHE needs. Sweet little baby. SHE is safe and loved here.

    I'm Gonna be A Child of Divorce #Depression

    I'm 21 and I've always been mature for my age. I'm 21 and that's nowhere near a child's age but right now I feel like one. My parents are getting a divorce and I've seen it coming -anticipated it even, because all of us could see that it's the best thing to do. I'm even a little mad they didn't get it sooner because I'm sure that would've been better. It's just that since I'm no longer a child, they decided that they're not gonna spare me all of the horrible details. Oh how I wish that I'm an actual child right now so I don't have to hear what I've heard. And it sucks. Because these are two people that I thought I love but I'm seeing how horrible they can be. Especially my dad. Not to pick a side but he's honestly the worst person I've ever known. I don't know if I'm allowed to hate him, but I do -oh how I do. And it's hard because I'm not the only one going through this, my older sister and my younger brother are in the same boat. I want to be their anchor, I want to be the one who could stay strong for them but it's getting harder and harder. The night of their (my parents) big fight both my sister and my brother cried. And holding them both whilst sobs wracked through their bodies is heartbreaking. I didn't cry. Not because I was trying to be strong but because I can't. I've been moping around and my depression is at an all time high but not a tear escaped me. I wish I could cry but all I've been feeling are there extreme pangs of numbness and emptiness. I don't know what to do. Stress of my final year of Uni is also catching up and these days I feel like trash. Like actual literal trash -chewed up and thrown out only to be picked up astray by the wind. Not knowing where I'm headed, just drifting, just floating. Barely alive; only living. I'm tired, very tired. I just hope I can hold out.

    Sacrifice #PTSD #d .I.D. #Anxiety

    She vowed to never trust another
    After so many had burned her
    But she met someone who was such a charmer

    So perfect through every set of her eyes
    Even after all the lies
    She put down her guard and threw away her ties
    Only to find....
    More identities would be created that she'd have to hide
    No one could know all she possessed inside

    For fear of being alone
    She gave up everything she owned
    And said Bye to her safe home
    Little did she know though
    It was the road
    That would lead her to being alone

    So now she sits under the tall trees
    On the floor of a Forrest that feels so deep
    Unable to flee
    Scared to leave
    And finding it hard to even breathe
    Praying someday she will find a way back to just one identity
    Find the road that sets her free

    Question

    Are there any groups in the TabletopRPG community (D&D and the like) that's for HSP?

    I can't seem to find any groups that can handle my enthusiasm and stuff. #d &d #rpggaming #tabletop #Gaming #DungeonsAndDragons
