Getting better

I’ve been struggling with my sense of self a lot lately, but was able to take a little step with feeling more confident in myself today. I customized my character in Pokémon Sword to look like me! I’ve been using games as an outlet to express myself.

Before I realized I was being gaslighted/back when I was a lot more confident in myself, it was a really big step for me to make female characters in games that let you customize your character; an even bigger step to make myself.

I remember making myself in another game for the first time since I was little, and I remember being really happy and proud of myself and I hope I can feel that confidence again.

It’s silly, but I was really proud!

How can you find reliable peer support when you verbally process?

After someone really close to me recently told me that they feel they cannot support me (despite them doing so for the past 5 years and they have helped me the most - and I do the same for them) because everything they do or say "turns to dust", and they said harsh and judgemental things, I am feeling at a loss for supports who understand how I process.

Everyone in my life struggles with mental health/and or physical health issues. I know that having a large support network is key, along with having people that are "doers, listeners, distractors". I have a therapist, but my sessions are almost up. I need someone who doesnt mind checking in with me every day and who has empathy and compassion. I have had enough tough love, people dismissing or demeaning me, ableist attitudes and responses. Im working through intense trauma, and finally need to focus on me. But my resources have dried up and I'm hurting, frustrated, feel silenced, and very alone. #Need support #needhelp #emotionaltrauma #emotional #ExhaustedAlways #Recoveryinprogress #struggling #seekingsupport #MentalHealth #FeelingAlone #Processfeelings #proccessingtakestime #processdifferently #needingvalidation #silenced

For a few months, my Type ll diabetes has been out of control, because of unbearable family stress. Today I begin insulin, and I have been so very ill I am grateful to do so. This anonymous quote is a wake-up call for me, and reminds me not to absorb every iota of everyone's pain. Perhaps it will help one of our Mighty community. Here it is: "I love you. I bless you. I release you to your own indwelling sense of God." May this go where it is needed.
