Re: Feeling completely overwhelmed

@Bee @scared01 @lokifish @jess1600 @redhead I’ve had a pretty productive day today, got most of my assignment done. Just finishing touches now.

 

But I’m feeling really worthless about myself now. I receive a journal semi-related to my undergrad degree and it’s usually really good and allows me to connect a little bit to another hobby of mine... but reading it today has made me feel like a failure and a waste of space. Looks like tonight might be a night of just looking after myself... I’m having some suicidal thoughts too, but I’ll be safe.

Re: Feeling completely overwhelmed

Oh, and the icing on the cake is that my parents think it’s my fault I’m having such a rough time! Smiley Sad This coming from people who think self care is a waste of time and gets in the way of me being useful.

@mrmusic I'm sorry this is happening.

Re: Feeling completely overwhelmed

Awesome job on keeping safe @mrmusic, I know how hard you have been trying. Not everyone gets self-care.. I have experienced this first-hand myself and you should always put yourself first and continue self care. You can then either educate those around you or respectfully diffuse the situation and just keep doing your thing. It definitely is not your fault, you are doing your very best. I am glad to hear a night of looking after yourself is in order Heart

Re: Feeling completely overwhelmed

Thanks @Taylor-RO, it seems like an uphill battle a lot of the time, but it’s good to get some validation. Heart

 

Thanks @jess1600 @redhead for your kind words also. Heart

Hey @mrmusic well done on submitting your assignment! I agree with @Bee, I'm sorry to hear about your parents' view on self-care but I want you to know that you are doing the right thing in looking after yourself and practicing self-care Smiley Happy.
