Khi đủ trưởng thành bản thân lại hiểu lắng nghe nhiều hơn nói sẽ tốt hơn... Cần thiết hãy mỉm cười cho mọi thứ nhẹ nhàng trôi qua... Vì không phải ai cũng muốn hiểu mình như cái mình đối với họ... #sobad#solonely
Avui en @rmn_rmn es fa gran (física, perquè mentalment ja sabem tots que és un avi). I resulta que ha decidit que no m'estima prou com per passar el seu aniversari amb mi. I si, ara estic parlant de mi i no d'ell, però no ens enganyem, dels dos jo sóc la més simpàtica i divertida. I ara ja m'he oblidat del que us deia...
Res, que en Róman em fa enfadar moltes vegades, però jo l'aprecio i aquestes coses maques que es diuen dels companys de pis.
Just in the past few weeks have I began opening up to the closest people in my life, and a few others, and sharing with them that I deal with depression from time to time.
And to my surprise I’ve heard back more than once, “Yeah, me too.”
For most of my life I can say I’ve always had a dark cloud hovering over my head.
During and after the best of times of my life I forgot about the cloud and that’d last for a couple months. In those months I’d make the most of my “progress,” you can say, in life.
Got cool jobs. Went on trips. Made some money in international modeling. Reached peaks of physical fitness. Read so many books. Got amazing girlfriends. It all shaped the part of me that I want to grow and eventually have become the largest part of me.
But I always drifted back to sadness. To constant worry and anxiety.
I’ve read enough self help books along the way to know how to keep my head above water for a good while. But even then sometimes I’d fall so low that I’d experience suicidal thoughts .
Thankfully in those moments, I remembered sound advice from some book or YouTube video saying that those thoughts aren’t who you are. You are the one aware of them. Ah yes, Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now.
One of those books that forever changed my life for the better.
So no matter how bad and awful I felt when I started having those thoughts, I placed a little anchor of belief that kept me bobbing near the truth that I am not my thoughts.
This is going to pass.
And they did. But to be honest, and a bit painfully vulnerable, they are not that far behind me.
Though through the last phase of life’s wave, the deep dip and now the climb up, I’ve learned a few techniques I use on myself to stop myself from sinking faster into despair.
Techniques that have been working so well for me recently that I have an uncommon and yet strong feeling and belief that I will soon bust out of my cacoon.
