Re: TW: Checking in

Hey guys, thanks for the tag @xXLexi_Lou122Xx

You guys have had a really interesting and difficult conversation about the nature of life, meaning and death, and I think you both did a really good job of expressing your ideas, listening and supporting each other. 

 

A lot of people start to grapple with big existential questions for the first time around your age, and so it makes a lot of sense that it would seem scary and overwhelming. In fact it can be scary and overwhelming for people long after the first couple of times they think about it. Everyone goes through these thoughts, and everyone eventually finds their own way of coping with it. For some, religion can provide the answers to the questions they have, while others look to philosophy, the environment, their relationships, or themselves for the answer. It might be helpful to read some existential writing @Bananatime04. I found this article that talks through some of the basics of existential anxiety. If you want to jump into some more adult works about existentialism, I really recommend looking up Jean-Paul Sartre, or Simone de Beauvior, who are both philosophers that contributed a lot to existentialism and how we think about it! (They can be a little dense, so sparknotes might be helpful to look at!)

Re: TW: Checking in

Aww, @Bananatime04.

I also hate when I become numb. Is there anything you can do when you feel this way?
Maybe cuddle Eddie for a while?

Re: TW: Checking in

Good morning @Bananatime04 , sorry to hear you have that numb feeling this morning. It's not a fun place to be sitting in I know. 

 

Do you think you could go for a walk outside, with Eddie maybe? Is there anything else that you've found useful in the past when you've felt this way? 

 

It's great that you called lifeline last night, how was the chat with them? 

 

You are an incredibly strong person, and we are all here for you. One day at a time Heart
