Going through some changes in my life, in career, and really in a confused place where I am doubting everything I have done for the past 10 years, where has it brought me. These things are weighing on my mind and affecting my relationship also, I am not able to control my emotions, I am always irritated, get angry on small things and cry for hours over menial things. It is draining me everyday not being able to control my emotions. I used to self harm but have been clean for the past 10 years, but I don’t know why nowadays whenever I am overwhelmed with emotions my mind goes towards thoughts of self harm. I don’t want to go to that place again, I don’t want to buy I am feeling like it is the only way to calm down myself
I don’t know what to do

So don’t go to that negative place. Don’t. Try to come out of it.
Good that you are aware about it. Just learn meditation and do lot of physical activities to start with. Be active and don’t keep thinking too much. Just learn deep breathing. I am sure you will find a way out

I understand how self-doubt can cast a shadow over our perceptions, making it challenging to find contentment. It takes strength to confront these feelings, and your openness about overcoming past struggles, including self-harm, is truly commendable. It’s a testament to your resilience and ability to navigate difficult circumstances.
Remember, this current situation, though overwhelming, doesn’t define your entire journey. Acknowledging your emotions and seeking help is a powerful step toward positive change. You’ve already shown great courage in facing challenges before, and with support, you can navigate through this as well. Don’t give up – you have the strength within you to overcome these obstacles. If you need further assistance or guidance, reach out to me for professional help. You’re not alone in this journey.
