Life is funny

Posted on

I’m struggling today or really right now. I was triggered I into some suicidal thoughts and looping on certain subjects. I’m so tired of my mind. I wanted to do a happy New year post but I can’t. Why do I let other people effect my self worth?

    I know everyone will just say that “it’ll get better,” which it does, but I know that when I’m feeling the way I suspect you are, I don’t want to hear that. My mum always tells me what I’m going to say to you. “It’s perfectly fine to fall apart. Only then can you learn how to put yourself back together.”
    You don’t have to always be strong. We’re not build that way. No one is. Just keep breathing and remember that you can always take horrible pictures of the people who hurt you and draw faces on them. Then, you can tag them in the photo on facebook. Just saying…it works for me.

    Good luck!

    Borderline Problem’s well-said comment reminded of the book “Going to Pieces without Falling Apart” by psychiatrist Mark Epstein, MD (Harvard Medical School). From Good Reads

    For decades, Western psychology has promised fulfillment through building and strengthening the ego. We are taught that the ideal is a strong, individuated self, constructed and reinforced over a lifetime. But Buddhist psychiatrist Mark Epstein has found a different way.

    Going to Pieces Without Falling Apart shows us that happiness doesn’t come from any kind of acquisitiveness, be it material or psychological. Happiness comes from letting go. Weaving together the accumulated wisdom of his two worlds–Buddhism and Western psychotherapy–Epstein shows how “the happiness that we seek depends on our ability to balance the ego’s need to do with our inherent capacity to be.” He encourages us to relax the ever-vigilant mind in order to experience the freedom that comes only from relinquishing control.

    I hope today is a good as it can be. Peace
