- Mood : Sad
earlier today, I finally let out these problems that I had been keeping bottling up inside for several months but when I told a certain stranger about these problems they only ended up making me feel worse. It took a lot of courage to finally let it out so it was really upsetting for me that the first person I told it to had to be a jerk.…[Read more]
I’m sorry that happened. As someone who usually listens this is good advice and I’ll try my best to be as understanding to anyone who is talking to me. I’m glad you could find someone who was able to make you feel better and I hope whoever you talked to firsts words don’t affect you to much.
I’m so sorry that happened to you @rockyraccoon, please know there are so many more kinder, compassionate and understanding people on BT who are willing to be there to support and help you, feel free to inbox me or reach out to any of our kind members if you need to talk, do continue to use the chat, some people can be horrible on the chat but…[Read more]

Take deep breathes and focus on all the things that put a bright smile on your face @rockyraccoon, you will be OK, keep smiling because you are a survivor, stay upbeat and always believe in yourself, keep going forward and never give up, you can do it, inbox me anytime if you want to chat or vent, stay strong, you are never alone (hugs)
Focusing on your breathing it’s a great, as @oliver and @invicible said. The 478 rule it’usually helps you to focus more deeply in your breathing; 4 seconds inspiration, 7 seconds holding in (this one can be reduced 1 to 5 seconds, if 7 feels like too much), and 8 seconds exhalation. If you have the chance, do it in a comfortable position…[Read more]
