I’ve been doing okay recently but the past couple of months are just starting to take a toll on me. I’ve lost most my friend group, basically friendless, dropped out of school (yet, again), stopped going to counseling, unemployed, and I honestly feel like I’m going no where.
Dont get me wrong, I’m trying and I stay trying to better myself but it’s like I’m stuck in quick sand, the more I try, the more I sink and lose hope.
Please comment some inspirational message or comment your similar situation and tell me how you got better x
Hey @YourName, thanks so much for posting - I really appreciate your honesty and rawness, you're a very talented writer.
The metaphor around quick sand is familiar to many of us. You've been through a lot of huge challenges here, and I hope you know you're absolutely not alone in the journey even though it might feel it. In terms of your friend group was that a conscious choice on your end? Or have they just kind of fallen off? Sometimes in life we lose a lot at once in order to grow, I truly do believe in the depths of pain lies our salvation. I will tag some of the other members for their input too - @lokifish@Bee@ErinsAntics@scared01@DruidChild
If you ever want to chat about anything, you can also speak free with KHL at anytime, confidentially with a qualified counsellor. Speak soon!
Hey @YourName Stuck in quicksand, feeling like you're going nowhere... I can hear how painful and frustrating this must be feeling for you. It can be so easy to lose hope in the process of recovery - because recovery takes so long and can take so much out of you.
