Re: A bit of a mess

Hi LilyCakes, Wait, people on forums are not “actual people”? :O lol Thank you so much for sharing a bit about your story. You definitely don’t want to ignore what is going on in your life, no matter how painful it is to face up to it. It will just get worse and harder to deal with the longer you le...

Re: Just diagnosed, not sure if I need meds

Hi CrystalClear, It might be an idea to see another health professional, as sometimes it’s good to get a second or even third opinion. It sounds like you’ve been under considerable, prolonged stress. This can wear us down and even induce depressive symptoms. Is your current employer a decent person?...

Re: testing the waters | please talk to me

Welcome to the forums. Have you tried to tell them, face to face, how you feel? It’s interesting how they all stopped responding to your texts, isn’t it? I don’t know the situation, but another thing to look at might be your expectations. For example, are you depending on them too much or being clin...

Re: Just want to find way to help myself

I used to have a bit of a temper myself lol. My family also has a temper, and I was brought up in an angry and violent environment. My parents did not teach me how to manage my emotions. Well, how could they when they didn't even know how to manage their own emotions? So my temper was understandable...

Re: Hello out there

Based on what you said, I feel that if she wants you to be a more assertive husband, a good leader and what have you, then it is her role as a wife to support your headship. She should be helping you to develop that confidence and headship, not shutting it down. Instead of belittling you, she should...

Re: Update on my life

Hi jinnie, Thank you so much for sharing. It was a good read and, speaking for myself, makes you feel like you are not alone with the struggles and pressures of life. With more freedom comes more responsibility, that’s for sure. For what it’s worth, I think you are doing an amazing job. And I do enc...

HI Me254, Welcome, and thanks for sharing. A double degree, full time job, and a good drink. I’m not surprised you are exhausted, buddy lol So what do you mean by “failing”? And why “pathetic” and “undeserving”? It’s always good to challenge unfounded or negative thoughts lest they become our truth....

Re: I don't know whats wrong with me

I doubt any of us here would know, either. I would imagine a qualified health professional, such as doctor and/or therapist would be the place to go to get to the bottom of it.

Re: can someone talk to me?

I totally hear you. I found it exceedingly frustrating in my own life. I was highly ambitious and had dreams that I wanted to make a reality. I had all the qualities and drive to fulfill my ambitions. But, at the time, I could not reach my full potential because I was struggling too much with depres...

Hi Theonlyme, You are certainly not alone. I’m sure many people here can relate to how you are feeling, including myself. I felt like I was nothing and life would always be painful. I dare not repeat the thoughts I had of myself and the way I felt lol but it was ugly. I felt this way about myself an...

Re: Hello everyone!

Hi Val87, Welcome to the forums. I was at a town with my puppy having a latte. He got first place ribbon at obedience training, so I took us there straight after training for a celebration. We went for a stroll up the road that leads to the town Church. It’s a lovely quiet spot lined with big trees ...

Re: Progress Report

Hi Welby, Thank you so much for keeping us updated. From what I can tell, you are doing all the right things. The fact that you felt uncomfortable is actually a good thing, in my opinion. This means that you stepped out of your comfort zone. After all, we can’t make progress by always staying in our...

Re: Howdy

Hi Joshuat, I can’t even begin to imagine what I would be like if I had been given an actual estimate of my time left on earth. I certainly don’t think it is unreasonable that you feel this way. Perhaps make it a matter of prayer. Keep talking to God, ask him for guidance, strength, peace, and wisdo...
