Insecure, low, well these two are my constant feelings, sometimes they are accompanied by overthinking. Fortunately today is not one of the day. This constant need of assurance is eating me alive and this feeling is making me push everything that is good in my life. I don’t know how to overcome that, I don’t know how to tell myself that these feelings will go away and I will be better soon because I have had these feelings for as long as I remember, worst and the funny part is now when I’m happy( which is a rare happening) i get scared as if I’m not allowed to be happy, that feeling is so unfamiliar that I feel something is bad going to happen soon. I wish I could be at peace, I’m tired of this feeling.
You need to let your insecurities and your fear out from your mind. I would be grateful if you would share what you are going through and I might help it out
All I can think right now is that everything is downhill from here, I would never come out of this, this feeling, I’m not even sure What it is, I feel distant from everyone and everything, I feel no one really cares how I feel, and feel suffocated, I feel trapped. I want to let myself go, I don’t want to feel this way, I want to feel normal. I know it’s hard to comprehend whatever I’ve written, it all makes sense to me, in my head.
I’m experiencing that too, what is working and helping for me is, sleeping early and waking up early, exercising, eating healthy, and no social media… Very simple things and general things but help in a wonderful way
I have tried, I have tried all that, but I sit with myself and my thoughts it all comes back, and my heartbeat gets faster, I get this sinking feeling in my chest, I have lost touch with everything especially myself
In my opinion in a way that is your body and mind telling you that you want to change your life and want to be happy…
So being happy eventually comes down to very basic things like I said above…
Hey, It’s totally alright to feel that way. We humans need assurance at times when we’re at our lowest which gives us hope during unprecedented times.
I have been in a similar situation and what helped me was that I took a break from social media (instagram, facebook) and during that time introspect, feel what i’m feeling and thinking about it as much as could instead of repelling my thoughts. Thinking about ‘em helped me look at the situation from a different perspective; eventually making peace with it. So that the next time it were to happen again, I’d know how to tackle it.
I joined Instagram in May, I have never really used any sort of social media before this except for WhatsApp. What’s strange is I have spent most of my life with myself and my thoughts, I never really repelled them, I didn’t have much friends which is sad but that’s how it was. I don’t know, I have been seeking help, but nothing really helps.
What I can suggest is: jot down all that is bothering you. Once you’ve done that, think about them thoroughly and get to the crux of it and find out the one thing holding you back and with your beloved ones try to be more direct in terms of your expectations and talking it out goes a long way buddy, trust me.
