Been there before.

There now.

Will no doubt be there again.

It comes in cycles.

After doing a few past life regressions, though, I'm not tempted anymore. I want to get the lessons this time so I don't have to repeat them again.

I really like that a lot.

Steph, you won't always feel like this. Most people have ups and downs and some people have really dramatic downs. But if you feel so awful and low for more than a couple weeks, you really need to see a doctor imo. There's no need to go along like that for too long a stretch. There are good people to talk to who can help steer you in a healthy direction. And there are good drugs which act on your serotonin and so forth which can help.

Since you never know what's in store for the future...it's a mystery, maybe you can see it as something interesting to find out about as you go through life. Not that it's all going to be rainbows and butterflies, but that it might just prove to be interesting. You can do things to make it more interesting too... like take a new class or take up a new hobby to get your mind on some happier things.

I do hope your mood improves and you seek out ways to help yourself. Don't waste your life feeling lousy. Life really is a gift and it only comes along here once. (I don't know about after life.)

((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((hugs)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))

It is hard. I was there for sure a couple years ago. Barely anything there to hold onto other than a little tricolor fluffy puppy.

I'm still not where I want to be. I don't have as many friends my age as I would like. Not many to really go hang out with and I miss it. It seems like every person I've reached out to lately has said 'no'. But I try and a lot of times I look back and realize it was me saying no to them. A lot is changing myself and it's hard. But I'm adjusting and it's getting better. I've really just had to say 'screw this' and throw myself out there. It's easier said than done and I still falter back more often than I'd like. Right now I am fighting with a 'I can't' for something coming up tomorrow and sunday. It hurts sometimes and I think I get hurt easily when I really shouldn't be.

Every day I try to do something that is an improvement. Even if it's little by little. I try to talk to someone new or someone I barely know. Go somewhere new. If all else fails, take a walk with the dogs someplace fun.

I let myself get into a huge funk after my mom died, my friends moved away, and staying home and taking care of her every second of every day was so draining. It is slow going. Sometimes painfully slow. But it does get better. I am much further than I was a year ago and I keep reminding myself of that.
