I think I'm highly sensitive and feel very deeply. I have hurt feelings very easily. I'm frequently deeply sad, regretful and can cry easily. I need help managing this

Reasons to Avoid Being 'Too Good to Be True'

1. People will take you for granted:

People expect you to be there for them, but they don't want you as a wellwisher, sometimes some people use you beyond the limits.

2. You'll miss out on excellent opportunities:

If you're being available for someone by saying "Yes" if you could've said "No" there are chances that you could've spent time on yourself. Chances are you might've accomplished a milestone instead of over-helping someone whose intention is to simply ruin your energy or anything.

3. You'll have a sense of burned-out:

Anyone who uses you may give you tasks that you take a lot of effort to do usually. And, people won't entirely value your efforts. So this eventually kills your comfort line and slowly gives you a sense of burnout.

4. People will diminish the respect they have for you:

Anything available in an extensive amount is taken for granted and less valued. For example, if you go to Gulf countries they take oil for granted for the level of feasibility. But they consider water as a precious gem, while the vice versa happens with the other countries, likewise with people. So, being more available will diminish the respect people have for you.

When you're living this life you'll always crave better attention, respect, care, and love from everyone. But, in reality, just think if all the people that you've helped will visit your grave when you die. If the answer is a " yes" then help them, but have limits. You alone matter more than other people's opinions and care.

The one with depression, sadness, anxiety, no one could understand anything are overlapping. #Depression #Sadness #MentalHealth

When you think that your counselor seems cannot help you with your depression and anxiety, since they might never feel how hard it is to live in such depressing moment every single day.

Where life is too much to handle, started with financially shortage, stressful day because no one cannot understand the way your brain works, and the fear of talking with any one, the overload worries because you just cannot control it.

I want to try to start my life with wake up happy and be productive, but this thing called anxiety always gets in the way.

And everytime I tried to counsel this in my therapy session they only gave me the big question -- "why are you afraid?"

if I had already known the answer, i would not have a session in the first place.

I just cannot control it. That is why.

Especially when I need a job right now, I just cannot think anything good but a failure. I even have not yet applied to anything.

Just need some nerve soothing to ease the pain.

Got no cleaning done today

It's been a bad day. My #Depression is bad right now. There's a local leather bar in my town and it's just outside my ability to walk there but I don't have transportation to get there either. They had a big event this weekend and I couldn't get to it. I don't have connections in my community like I used to.

Years ago I was in a puppy competition and it was wonderful but after I lost I basically was forgotten. It's a big popularity schtick. If you're not hyper sexual and in the winners circle you don't exist. So I'm a nobody. Just a trans puppy in a cis community and I don't fit in.

I need new friends but I can't get out to make new friends. It's a shit sandwich.

I didn't have any spoons to clean. I did a lot yesterday and the day before yesterday. I'm gonna try again tomorrow. I've just got my dining room and vacuuming to do. I am trying to be kind to myself and learn to be gentle with when I'm struggling.

How to accept your depression/ sadness on bad days?

When it strikes out of nowhere sometimes or is constantly there even though you try hard to be positive or accept your emotions or do things to manage it. I’m used to feeling anxiety but I guess have a tougher time when I’m tired, fatigued or struggle when I’m down and can’t try to change it.

It’s a part of life we can’t constantly be happy etc but I guess it’s just hard sometimes.
