Trying not to judge myself

Don’t break your own heart 💜

Breathe into the goodness that you are 💗

I’ve been hard on myself today. I wish I could cry but I haven’t been able to for a while. I feel it rising but then it shuts off. Had a panic attack and tried letting myself feel it but it was extreme and I fled. Things seem so breakable.

I plan on trying to be gentle with and accepting of myself today. I hope others out there will do the same if struggling to feel good enough.

Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. Maybe just maybe it is time to stop crying and experience joy. Right when you are about to get your breakthrough to a better time in your life, things may get a little uncomfortable. We have to be able to experience something not good so when we are in a good place and something bad happens so we do not let that have a permanent effect, it was but for a moment. Then you move right back to your good place. You may have ran but God has you hidden in his arms.

Yes, let’s help each other stay STRONG. Let’s start fresh when we hit a point that is hard and hurtful. Keep up the good work.

Needhelp, I love the thought of moving right back to my good place. And well I can hope that God has me in His arms. I miss the connection I once Had with God. Maybe this is to teach me what it is like to be without Him so I don’t stray and maybe I will realize the closeness when it is time.

Hey there. Hang in there. Loving yourself is one of the hardest things to do. I am sending every good thought your way. We all need to support one another here without any judgement. Sometimes when I cry I feel much better and it breaks the fog that I am in with my depression. But sometimes I find it impossible to feel anything. I know exactly how you feel.

Thanks! Today is an ok day. I tend to have mood swings. But I am trying to think positively. I think this site is all about being there for each other, so please share anything you want to! You are not alone. Actually I have been so depressed before that I have thought of something really sad to make myself cry to feel something. So definitely know where you're coming from. :)
