    I could cry with how proud I am over the simple perspective in the most miniscule way… just four years ago I was mesmerized with the story of Anna Karenina and I completely glamourized Anna & Vronsky, and I identified with Anna a lot.

    Now in a healthy, growing relationship, I find myself wanting just that. A healthy relationship with myself…[Read more]

    • You truly do deserve a loving, fulfilling and positive relationship with someone special @invincible, remember to always be kind to yourself sweetie and please know that any relationship you are in will continue going from strength to strength, be with someone who loves you and who will stick by you through anything, don’t focus on those who…[Read more]

    Feeling a little disappointed and hurt. It just seems that I will try my hardest to dedicate myself and my time to the one I love but they can’t do that for me. My stomach was hurting before we called for a bit, it went away when talking, now after hanging up it’s back and I just want to sleep because I’m hurt.and over thinking

      They should do the same for you @invincible, you are such a beautiful, special and wonderful person Cecelia who deserves to love and be loved, any person who you are in a relationship with should treat you with the support, care, love, compassion and kindness that you show to them, it’s great to truly love someone but they should always return…[Read more]

    • Unfortunately, I know that feeling you describe Cecelia. Sometimes we try our best to be there for the ones we love, even when they do not reciprocate. If that’s the case, you should set boundaries, even if it hurts. Otherwise, they’ll keep benefiting from your kindness without worrying about you neither giving anything back. Something similar…[Read more]

    Just had a consult with a new therapist. He seems to understand what I told him and what he said about his approach resonates with me. Got an appointment for next week and I think this might actually help

    Whenever I feel normal at work, a coworker will raise their voice or yell at me and then I dissociate and get triggered lmaoo

If you need to talk, my DMs are always open <3 @invincible

    I decided to see a therapist since I currently have good insurance. I went through the entire intake including hours of paperwork and a very vulnerable session only to have the “therapist” decline to keep seeing me because I have a history of depression and admitted to self-harming 10 years ago. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FUCK. It’s not like I need…[Read more]

    Getting really tired of the colleague who says ”you were gonna switch shifts with me, right? Don’t forget to write it down.” when she didn’t even ask me! And when I react confused (obviously) she acts as if I knew and agreed. This isn’t the first time she pulled this, and with this kind of attitude, I don’t want to accommodate to her wishes at all.

    • I would ignore her and focus on doing the shifts that suit you @little-angel-2, always work hard Rain and don’t let anyone distract you from doing what is right for you, hope your colleague doesn’t bother you going forward Rain, everything will be OK, feel free to inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • ”No, I’ve never agreed to switch shifts with you. If you’ve wanted one, you should have asked in the first place ;) ”. She does not deserve a different answer than that. Her attitude it’s despicable, she’s making you feel guilty and gaslighting you.

    It’s ridiculous that the only therapy my health insurance partially covers is at a center where they refuse to help me because I’m autistic. Not only do they discriminate, they’re also basically saying you can only get therapy if you’re not mentally ill. (I hate that term, by the way. I’m not ill. My brain is just wired differently.)

    • That’s not right at all @little-angel-2, they should accommodate and support you Rain, I hope you manage to find the right therapy that truly helps you, please know that I will always be here for you Rain and so will the BT community, feel free to inbox me anytime if you ever need to talk Rain, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • And to whom exactly are they offer therapy then? To the ones whose mental health is okay and, by definition, do not need therapy? It’s deplorable that a center dedicated to look after people’s health has that kind of protocols. I hope you can find a good therapist as soon as possible @little-angel-2

    Being an adult is an endless cycle of paying bills and replacing things.

    • I’ve been feeling the same for a long time. We work endlessly to earn enough money just to pay for basic things we need to live (such as water, food, electricity, rent…), and if you have something left, it’s gone in contingencies as a broken car, something in the house to fix… I try to enjoy the little things to keep these thoughts at bay…[Read more]
