I woke up this morning feeling sad. I am a genuine believer that we are in control of our thoughts and emotions, and not the other way around, but lately it hasn’t been feeling that way. I’ve been finding ways to get upset over the smallest inconveniences and then I just let it ruin my mood from there on out and I don’t know why or how to stop. It’s so stupid but it’s taking a toll on me and my relationships and if I don’t learn how to be in control again I feel like I’m going to stay sad in this same loop forever.

Hey! It’s not stupid. I sort of get it. Perhaps it’s because you expect your life to be headed in a certain direction, but it isn’t going where you want it to go. I’m a half-glass empty person, so I am always frustrated, but there are days when I can disconnect with anxiety and can stop and smell the rose, and it’s joyful, and then I’m grateful. Almost all the time people advise me to look at the bright side. As hard as it is, I have been trying to maintain a gratitude journal and a frustration journal where I sort of label my darkest feelings. I write down everything. It’s been helping me slow down my thoughts and focus on the good. I’m not saying smelling the rose will do it. It’s a mindset shift and it might take time. I’m having a hard time sticking with it is why I’m on here. But hope my experience helps. Also, to save your relationship from the collateral damage, just loop them in about how you have been truly feeling. If you don’t feel like you can open up to them, then perhaps that is why you may be frustrated.
All the best!
Wow, you have no idea how much I needed to read that. Thank you for taking the time to type that out, it honestly helped me more than you’ll ever know. You were right about my life not heading in the direction that I want and that is why I feel so frustrated and down most of the time. I used to start journaling and it helped me a lot so I’m going to get back into it. And I talked with my boyfriend about it, I’m so grateful that he’s understanding and willing to help me through whatever it is, because getting through it alone is not easy.
Again, thank you. I wish you all the best <3

I’m happy to hear that you have help! <3
Hey!! These situations are quite natural…but what we need to understand is when mood change to a sadness,give some time and think like, what happened now, what’s the root for this problem…nd solve it…
And also we are all humans,we can’t be like a same every time…our mood change in seconds…so be brave to face it…and believe in our own self!!!
Have a good day
Be brave and face it 🏼 I like that a lot, it’s definitely not easy but understanding where the sadness comes from is so important so that you can feel it and then heal it so that it doesn’t drag on into the rest of the day. Thank you, I hope you have a beautiful day.
This is really good to see that girls are trying to help each other in the way they should. Specially that no useless comments are there for a genuine problem, but only genuine help.
I won’t give you any advice, as you already got something better ☺️
I’m happy to see you and here just to appreciate you all. 👍🏻
It truly is a beautiful thing to be able to relate to another person going through a similar thing. All anyone wants is to be understood, and to feel like you are not alone in this world is an incomparable feeling. Thank you, I hope you have a wonderful day :)
As I understand this world, people with broken hearts can easily relate to something like this. And if someone understands us, it’s the extra ordinary thing for us. You just believe in you.
Have a nice day to you too…
Stay positive ✌🏻 stay strong 💪
