Hard to tell what one is feeling

mixes of emotion lately...can anyone relate? is it a switch in mood every other moment at times? Hard to concentrate? Is it hard for you to tell what you’re feeling?

OCD and Racing thoughts compete to scare and make laugh.things like someone choking or other scary scenarios play in the otherwise happy thankfulness of the soul.

It’s such a fight. Suicidal ideation even though you’d never go and do it? But it will lift off of you, this burden when it chooses it seems no matter how hard you try!

🌸 yes I can relate. not fun at all. but as you say it does lift it's just getting through it and coming out the other side. hope you start feeling more yourself soon 🌸

I can relate and have been feeling like that this whole week. I wake up and feel bombarded by thoughts. Sometimes I can shake it off, but not lately. It does pass, although it sucks in the meantime. You are not alone in feeling this way. Keep moving forward 😊

You're not alone. Like others have mentioned do let those emotions pass as it is the depression not you. Thank you for sharing your feelings.

Picturing the thoughts passing me by on a leaf down the stream. Thanks

Maybe try to think of it like you are watching a scary or sad movie. You just turned the television on and immediately realize you do not want to watch that show so you jump up and turn the station. Find a way to turn the station. We experience things, see things we wish we did not all the time. The world is the world and we can not extricate ourselves; imagine how many things you have seen or experienced that you wish you could undo, like watching horror movies when we were teens. Once I was watching this show waiting to see what it was about and this scene came on before I knew it, I grabbed the remote and turned but it was too late, I could not unsee it. Do not let it bother you, just change the channel.💕

Until you succeed. You are strong, you are courage’s, (even when hit by fear we persevere). Giving up is not in our vocabulary, given in is not an option. Be well.

Got to get through. It’s so tiring; the fear, the sensation in my chest, but worth it to make it through to the beauty and truth and peace and joy even though it’s mostly bad feelings over and over and over , it’s just frustrating

I know. I think we have to get to a point where we are fed up being afraid of these things. Then it makes it easier to handle. Some say, it is not what we go through but how we go through.

I’m pretty damn tired of the fearing so I guess it will be leaving now 😆 seriously I am tired of it and ive come so far!!! I am proud of how far I’ve come as I no longer suffer and struggle in many different situations so I am grateful but I just came upon a new feeling that is really bothering...one of no control over the future. So I will be practicing meditation more now to be in the present... I’m having so much trouble concentrating but I won’t give up.

That day will come Starrlight. When I look back at my life, I am amazed that I survived. But I did and became a stronger person for it. Because of that success,

I have chosen to pay it forward in supporting others on their journey. You WILL be

that person one day as well. :) xx

Ok I am believing that it is possible. I’m glad you made it Agora. It reminds me of a sort of swimming race, a very long one and we are gasping for breath at the end we make it...

And I hope to find that the angels actually were looking after me as I felt I would drown like in my dreams.
