Narrative: the story, the juicy, the words we use to star in our own show! Here is my narrative you Naughty-no-it-alls Once upon a time,
How do people with Depression and Anxiety disorders find can’t-live-without-you love?
I have no idea, loving someone else creates feelings of vulnerability. Love layered in anxiety has led me to depression and more anxiety. I am learning to love who I am by focusing on being No-it-all-2.0. Learning to love myself is the path to loving someone else.
If you are anything like me, I am far harder on myself whether it was my fault or not. I will internalize and brutalize myself like a tough steak just pounding away obsessing over every detail. I can tell you from experience nothing good comes from internal beat downs. The best method for me is to breathe and circle back. Changing my thinking and refocusing my energy from kicking my own butt to maybe organizing the whole house, again. Go with what works for you.
Life is depressing Sometimes grownup me cannot tell that we have grown up. In order for me to move forward, I set intentions and avoid interventions.
I cannot change what has happened in my life. The choices I have made in the past have made me who I am now. Nor can I expect others to bow down before me because bad things happened that were beyond my control. In life, we play the cards we are dealt and sometimes that hand just sucks. Life is a hot mess, it is a lot easier to blame others for my unhappiness than to blame myself. Well according to Erica, my go-to guru, We control our own happiness, it is all on us to find our own path to happiness. My blame gaming has only ever held me back, I need to learn to forgive, let go and move on.
