    Anyway, don't be a stranger Prestigious

    Yeah I guess I'm used to friends letting me down. And a lot of it in adulthood isn't even personal it's just people's adult lives being busy and things happening, but I feel like I'm always like... Abnormally more dedicated than most ppl? Like I can rattle off all my friends birthdays, remember little things they say, and I've started to pull back because I'm tired of feeling dumb and like I care too much.

    But yeah, it's nice when things do work out.

    Nah. If people make plans, they should stick to them!

    Which is why I don't make plans. Can't disappoint people that I don't wanna go out on the weekends if I never promise anyone anything.

    Yeah I've had to get better at declining plans. But like I'd rather someone just decline plans straight off than accept plans and cancel. I used to just go along with anyone's plans to not disappoint, but lately I'm like lol no screw that it sounds terrible and I'm not doing it. I'm constantly doing favors for friends and being like the social worker to friends and I don't mind it sometimes, but it often feels one-sided. More and more I just wanna do things alone and not worry about others.

    That's good. You need to be able to say no and not just be there when they need you. Definitely needs to be some give from both sides.

    If I needed any confirmation that I was going to be an overly emotional mess today, Georgia by Phoebe Bridgers came on a playlist and I started crying almost immediately soooo that's how it's going to be today I see haha.

    Wow idk how to process this. Feel like I can't confide in others because I don't want to risk secondary trauma, so I'm just struggling. Bummed cause I usually have therapy on Fridays but I don't tomorrow. Someone I could normally confide in without breaking confidentiality has a different stance on this issue so I feel like that's not even an outlet for me. Idk idk

    Never feel like I’m good enough.

    I'm far enough removed that you could chance talking to me about it, if you needed to vent; though I know the confidentiality aspect is rough.

    Either way, hope you're hanging in there!

    Thanx! I hung out with my nephew after work and am planning a decent weekend so I hope that helps. It'll be okay. Just super devastating and there's nothing I can do so it feels v powerless

    Well that all sounds positive! Hopefully the weekend is super fun. Sucks to feel powerless about a situation tho. :(

    Haven't been doing too well this week. No reason in particular that I can discern; just kind of not being able to hold myself together very well. Glad today is Friday and I work from home so I can just sort of quietly exist. I dunno, my brain is bad.

    That's how the last 4-5 months have been going for me. Very vacant feeling after an onslaught of a lot of rough times that I haven't really been able to shake. Finding bits of solace in the drink but know that's not really the best cure to any of it really.

    Sorry to hear that! I hope things start looking up for you soon. 4-5 months straight of this mood isn't good for anyone. :heart: I tend to spend money I don't have on things I don't really need, which adds stress when I go to pay bills.

    The world is just completely against me today and for the first time in what feels like way too long it’s actually not getting the best of me. I certainly don’t understand this mood I’m in, but I’d like it to last please and thank you

    That was a phase I went through as well for a bit. Had to cut that real quick.

    I’m trying to deal with the past trauma in my life, the events and the people who hurt me. It’s been painful and it’s made realize hard truths about myself but I find myself getting better every therapy session.

    This up coming weekend would have been our 2 year from our first date. It makes things a little harder knowing I won’t see year 3 like i thought. I wanted us to do something nice, but I guess me taking long to open up about things was too much to handle. It only took long because he’d make certain comments that made me feel like he won’t understand where I’m coming from

    My fiancé and I are atheists. I was raised Catholic. Baptism, first communion, confirmation...all that stuff. My family will have a fit when I tell them I don’t want the wedding in a church or anything religious. I know toxic people are toxic, even if they’re family, but I’m nervous how they’ll react.
