I'm trying to navigate a relationship and now thats gone to shit. Im trying to pick up my pieces, and i don't have a great support system. my mind is devastating me and I don't have the motivation to cope. i feel like i can barely keep myself afloat right now, but if anyone asked id lie. I feel like im destined to sabotage every relationship. I never want to hurt anyone cause of my shit again. i go to therapy and see a psychiatrist, but i dont feel any better. my self-image is trash and im trying to change that so any advice for that would go a long way. thanks

I also ended my relationship today and feeling like an absolute shit. I too go to therapy and have my psychiatric treatment, I think I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for that but I am still struggling. I know this is hard but we are resilient and we're aiming towards stability and that is A LOT. What had been working for me is to take life very calmly, like really trying to do my best in every activity I did. I kept my space clean and tidy not just because but because, I told myself, I'm worth it. I also challenged every horrible thought I had, I know you don't feel strong enough to do that but then I will tell you that you are not your illness, you are worth it too, and you deserve love
