🎧Not knowing what can happen increases anxiety.
Fear of what is yet to happen.
Fear of what might take place.
🌻🌻🌻
Fear to be present and international.
Fear to speak up.
Fear that is riddled in trauma.

Darker.

My sister told my mum that I need to see a phycologist after my mum shouted at me just because I decided to have a break for the 1st time at that day by eating popcorn and watching a tv show. She kept saying that my blood pressure is always high because of these snacks and I never cared about my body and I don’t care about my self. I did nothing when she said that, she went to the living room telling everybody about how selfish I am. I went to take a shower and finally, I cried a river. I felt awful, I DID NOHING, I’ve been struggling with hypertensions 2 years ago. I did many things to understand when it gets high, but I don’t know yet what is it. And now because of a popcorn ? Actually I felt a little bit better that day because all of this drama happened, because I went outside to water the plants and feel the wind playing with my hair for around 30-40 minutes. So I enjoyed my time seeing the stars and the flying airplanes, and I decided to do it everyday. But I am more hopeless after what happened, My parents turned everything to lectures about things I am not even thinking about, they can’t understand, and I never wanted to tell them because I knew what will happen if I did, they simply don’t understand and I am tired of explaining and I don’t want them to get angry on me, because I also know hat will happen. I don’t blame my sister, she wanted to help, she tried, but she couldn’t, that’s why she told her, but I guess I will never tell my sister too, because she keeps on worrying too, and I don’t want her to worry about me, she have a beautiful life ahead her, and a medical school she need to take care of, so I’ll just pretend that I’m fine and happy, for her, and it’s going to be better to have no one knows anything about my mental health. By this way no one will tell anyone ever. I woke up today feeling darker, heavier, sadder, more depressed than ever before. I know my parents care about me, but how they think what is wrong with me doesn’t make any sense to me, they’ll never understand, and I don’t blame them and I’m not alone, I got my own back.

hey. I struggle with severe depression and anxiety which not only makes it very difficult for me to function as a normal person, but keeps me from being able to do things that I would love to do (exercise, healthy eating, etc.). it leaves me constantly exhausted throughout the day and unable to motivate myself to get into a routine of any kind. I oversleep, struggle with self hatred and feelings of not even being worth enough to do the things I want to do... (will continue)...

continued: “so I stay in this cycle that I can’t seem to break out of. I was wondering if you have ever experienced this and if so, what did you do to get yourself out of this cycle?”

as a current master’s graduate student and counselor-in-training, i cannot begin to express the importance of seeking professional help, from a counselor/therapist. especially with the upcoming generations of practicing clinicians…i feel that there is a lot more knowledge and GOOD practices among professionals in the mental health field.

like…i could go on and on about what i personally feel may help you based on what has helped ME in the past, but that would be foolish, because we are soooo different. and you didn’t start to feel this way overnight – it’s from a lot of things built up over time because of many factors, and you can work through that, one on one, with someone who is able to help you professionally. like, i wish i could tell you to come sit down with me right now and talk, but i’m not licensed yet.

right now i’m reading a book for one of my courses about the link between lack of nature & increased rates of depression, anxiety, and other attention disorders because of the rise in technology and oh my gosh this book, is incredible, and makes so much sense. but it’s only one part of a puzzle

If you want something to read…

I’m currently posting a rewrite of a book I wrote three years ago called “The Mental Storm” on Wattpad. I post a chapter on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s, and Saturday’s. The main premise is that the main characters live in a world where your mental maturity age determines your legal abilities.

Anyways, if you wanna read it, go to Wattpad.com/AnnaZverina.

Have a great whatever time of day it is for y’all!

Hi, i am a people-pleaser

I write these words because I am feeling troubled.

If we are being honest troubled doesn’t even measure at what I am feeling now because it’s my way of introducing to you that I am completely fucked, and I need someone to not be scared away.

The thing is, at the point when I started writing this which I still do not know what this is, I did not want to scare you away but as I am beginning to write, my breathing is steadying, and my heart rate is slowly getting on track. A nice change of pace if I may add, truly cathartic, very peaceful. Guess that explains the current trend of journaling. Either that or I just simply do not have any more fucks to give. How rebel of me.

Why would I scare you away? Because that is one of my god given talents.

Let me address my nature. My instinct is to automatically please, get you to stay with me and that is what has gotten me fucked up. I always try to please people and fuck, how annoying is that. Something that is truly good in its core and somehow gets all twisted. You praise your children, commend their behavior if they care for others. But how did my mind get on this level? You can preach me, how naïve you, goody two shoes, the wolf eat the sheep, the world is what it is but why am I like these? Why do I try to get so badly on your good side?

In the last years I learned the though way that the wolf devour the sheep. I gave pieces of me to hold people together, thought that was the way it was supposed to go and paid a price to heavy. Being the sensitive gal that you may have judged I am, I felt turned apart, ripped like a fucking ragdoll someone got tired of. Lost friendships, lost my health, lost my time, lost myself and was in too deep before I realized it. So, in the last two years, I took my chance at recovery. And guess what? Scared away even more people in the process because that is peachy sunny life. And I could lie and say I never stopped smiling!!! But no, it was a slow process, full of deep lows and small victories like losing some sort of persistent fuzz in your frontal lobe and gaining back the will to learn. I cannot even explain how hard I had to fought it out because you are not supposed to have some sort of static in the brain and lose the ability to learn. What a hell of a win it was. Guess I addressed the sickness in me.

But besides the wolf, what consumes me is what is inside me. The deepest longing to have someone. Someone that understands and considers you and my nature even in the smallest possible ways. It pushes me to devout myself to the people around me and leads to setting myself to disappointment. And since you are willing to do everything for them it racks up to hurt because you realize not all people would do what you do when the time rises. You realize you can’t rely on anyone the way they count on you, a lonesome feeling in your gut. It grows, it settles and then you feel misplaced. I cannot talk about it otherwise it is my fault for reacting the way that I am and all you can do is wait. When the circumstances surge then they remember you are in the background, you suddenly have a use and because they count on you, you cannot let them down. The circle comes together. Why can’t they see the pattern in the way they are treating me? Why do they treat people like this? And a better why, why do I allow it? Troubled, conflicted, confused and hurt I push these feelings aside and be there for them, the way I wish and long for them to be for me. Is this human nature or just the fucked-up nature of mine?

Glad you made all the way through my ted talk and a sincere thank you for not running away.

My new favorite bag came with this little love note from its maker, theschooloflife.com: “We are all privately haunted by a fear that we’re freakishly odd. But in fact, as this bag celebrates, no one is ever quite normal. The only people we can mistake for ordinary are those we don’t yet know very well. From close up, we are all gloriously compulsive, over anxious, confused and bizarre. There is no reason for shame, just confirmation of our essential shared humanity. We should never be lonely under the mistaken impression that our deep selves have no counterparts in those we meet. We are all fascinatingly peculiar – a truth to which this bag bears public witness.” #wednesdaywisdom https://ift.tt/2FPwdpy

Tips for Making Life Work

1. Focus on doing one thing at a time. Tackling multiple activities may seem more efficient, but giving one task your complete attention is actually more productive in the end. It also cuts down on your levels of stress.

2. Slow down and enjoy the journey. Whatever you’re doing is important right now. Don’t wish that it was over – and try and make it fun.

3. Stop being such a perfectionist. Don’t stress out over details and impressing everyone.

4. Learn to delegate to others: take the pressure off yourself. Perhaps other people won’t do the job as well. But that’s how people grow – so why not give them that chance – and spend your own time doing things that you’d prefer to do.

. Don’t always be waiting for the other shoe to drop. Lots of people spend their lives terrified of what might happen – and most of the time things work out to be just fine. Thus, they’re worrying for nothing when they could be having fun!

6. Focus on what you have, not what you wish you had. All of us have things we can be grateful for. Not everything is awful –and life’s not always bad. And if you change your focus to what you’re thankful for, you’ll find you feel much happier, and worry a lot less.

7. If things go wrong, just shrug your shoulders and smile. Remind yourself that life goes on - so don’t wreak your life wishing things were different or regretting what you’ve done. Also, things might work out next time. Tomorrow’s a new day.
