I need toughen up like a hard boiled egg. I need to learn to let go of things. I need to realize you can’t make everyone happy. I just don’t seem to have the skill set even with therapy I still struggle. It’s no way to live life.

    I agreed with you, it is not easy, but also it is not impossible. I have been struggling with depression, anxiety and PTSD for 35 years(I am 40) and I learned that loving yourself, thinking about you first and doing what makes you happy, is a great way to start. And I repeat, it is not easy, and some times you have to fake it until you make it(as recommended by some of my therapists). Believing that you can and practicing/using everything that you learn, can definitely change your life, with time. Recovery is possible and working to achieve it is a 24/7 job. With all respect.

    Don’t cut yourself short. It takes A LOT of hard work. It is not easy in any way shape or form. That makes us warriors. We fight so hard to overcome everyday obstacles PLUS mental and emotional obstacles. One day at a time. One thought at a time. Once you are able to do that, you can move on to more. You have to find the strength within you to make the first step and hold yourself accountable. And if you fail? There is always tomorrow, a new day! And if you fail? It’s NOT the end of the world. We are not infallible. It is how you perceive things that will help you along. Don’t give up on yourself just yet, girlfriend. You’ve got a lot of fight left in you, even though you may feel tired and weak.

    I’m a sensitive person too. It’s hard isn’t it?!
