    What self care thing did you do for yourself today?

    Yesterday... I expressed what I was feeling, as a way of caring for myself. Anyone else want to share what they've done? I thought it might be nice to encourage each other, in the little things that we do to show ourselves that we matter, that we're worth looking after and being nice to...

    Feeling unworthy of being loved

    I remember having a crush on this girl from college and I guess she liked me too but I never really asked because I thought I didn’t deserve her. Now she is married and I regret letting go of her just because I thought I didn’t deserve her love. Even now when I meet a girl and there is mutual...

    I think the depression is coming back and I’m scared

    Hello, I’m new here and don’t really know how this works so I’m sorry if I make mistakes. I’m posting because it feels like the crippling depression I had four years ago is returning and I really don’t know what to do. The thing is, I know it’s xoming back now because I have just finished a...

    How to get over someone?

    Hi guys, I need help. I work with someone who I have had an emotional affair with (sounds stupid to say it) and I know it has to stop and I think we have finally decided to leave each other alone. The problem is I can’t get this person out of my head and it’s hard to avoid them since...

    I deserve to be normal. It sucks being like this

    I hate the way I'm feeling right now. I'm dealing with constant severe fatigue, numbness and brain fog. I've been like this for 15 out of my 21 years of existence. I'm trying to write a reflection on a text document I've read but I can't because the fatigue is debilitating. I just want to be...

    How do I properly punish myself?

    I'm slowly coming to terms with the fact I'm a bad person, many people have made me realise lately how much of an emotional abuser and toxic person I am. So what do I do to get the full affect of making sure I feel as much pain as possible that I deserve? They're right when saying the abused...

    Is working hard enough?

    Whatever it is in life, almost everyone tries hard. But why is it that only a few make it? Life isn't fair is it. I know everyone has their own time to shine. But why do some people go backwards while some go forward in their life if both are trying hard? The ones who fall maybe didn't work...

    Why do I need to punish myself?

    I've had the family over today and had a nice time. Now I feel the need to punish myself. It's almost like I think that I don't deserve to be happy. The urges are creeping their way into my mind again. It's so unfair. But then at the same time I guess it's what I deserve.

    I Just Need To Vent And Maybe Some Support?

    So like probably no one cares but that's chill! But we can't afford my therapist anymore cause of insurance so maybe just letting this out will help some Only a select few know about my depression and anxiety disorder but even then I don't talk about it. I don't ever bring it up with anyone...

    Mixed feelings

    I've been away for the weekend to family, on my own. I had a lovely time. I find this really hard to say, but I'm proud of myself. OK, so now I have to be mindful of how I'm feeling now I'm back home, not to sabotage what I've achieved. I want to be happy. I deserve to be happy. Yet I...

    Fed up

    I'm really feeling fed up with myself. I am even considering leaving the forum because I don't feel like I fit in here. I have tried to be friendly, I have even shared my story with a member here that I deeply regret and I have made a fool of myself I think. What is happening to me? As usual I...

    I dont think i introduced myself properly so her's an update.

    I am my own worst ennemy. I'm always lucky to find good company and nice ppl but somehow i ruin it. The funny part (or sad part) is that i unintentially push them away while amtrying to bring them closer. Maybe cause i dont know how to not be so greedy and selfish and want the person all for me...

    I feel so much shame for my depression. It just doesn't make sense why I get sad because a lot of things in my life are great. I have a decent job and people who love me. I know I should be happy and greatful. But I don't understand why anyone would like me? I have a shitty personality and bad...

    Help? I'm really struggling

    Don't feel I can take much more. The pain is unbearable. I hate BPD so much but I hate me more. Can't stop thinking of dying. Everyone would be better off without me. I am a bad person. I don't deserve to live.

Recently, things have got a lot worse than they were before and he keeps trying to push me away saying that 'he doesn't deserve me' and...
