Feeling Down This Morning

I was keeping busy, feeling less anxious, and actually sleeping better. Then suddenly I start feeling bad again. The anxiety flares up, not sleeping as well, depressed mood, etc. It definitely gets frustrating when this happens.

Has there been a trigger for the sudden change? Anything at all no matter how small. Sometimes for me it can be a look. Or a dream. And i fall into a horrible state of self hate for about three days. sometimes I just don't know why or it seems out of my control. I always ask myself why though. Hope you feel better soon.

Yes, I have experienced that too.
Whenever I feel down or worried I listen to good music. Music is therapeutic. It heals, refreshed and uplifts your spirit.
I suggest you listen to these songs every day:

Overcomer by Mandisa
Good Morning by Mandisa
Fearless by Jasmine Murray
Happy by Pharrell Williams
I Believe I Can Fly by R Kelly

These songs have helped me a lot and continue to help me.

Also, exercising is very powerful in getting out of negativity. According ti studies, exercise makes you happier and smarter. I exercise with those songs as background music.

Remember that you were born to have a good mindset and be happy.

I'm not sure what my trigger is. I was stressed and haven't felt the same since. Some days I feel ok and others I struggle. I get vivid dreams at times and that makes me feel anxious.

About half an hour ago I wasn’t feeling too bad.
Now I am beginning to slide downwards.
I don’t know why.
This often happens and I have no idea of triggers.

Perhaps dreams are a trigger. If I have a disturbing dream it can ruin my whole day. What caused you to be stressed? Some days you just cant win I understand, I hope you are feeling a little better today?

Triggers for me are mostly my own negative thoughts, or a sneaky way for my brain to stop me from being productive. Therefore I should hold myself accountable for my bad moods? It seems like there are two of me, one hates me and the other is pretty much silent. I don't have solutions I am struggling too, so at the very least you are not alone.

I understand what you are saying Empty-void.
I had never quite thought of it being like that.
I’m sorry you are struggling too.

Hope things improve for you soon.

Thank you, and I hope you day gets better too. It's like a battle every morning. But I have to say I wouldn't be me without other me constantly pushing me. I hate it but it's a part of me. I have to learn to live with it. I'm trying to counter my depressed moods by keeping busy. It's not easy but I suppose in a twisted way it wants the best for me? Sometimes.

You sound a very kind and wise person.
I wish all the best for you. 🙂

Thank you pollypop, I am definitely not wise, some days are clearer to me. Other days I won't listen to reason. I hope your day improves somewhat.
