    Really nervous about these mood swings…don’t want to grow old with them. Don’t want to be like this forever. Don’t want them to define me.

    Mood : Ashamed
    • Don’t let sadness get you down @rolivia128, remember to stay upbeat and do your best to focus on the things that bring you brightness and hope, let the amazing parts of yourself shine through and always believe in yourself, you can do it, go forward and never give up, I’m always here if you ever need to chat or vent, feel free to inbox me anytime, stay strong, you are never alone :) (hugs)

    • I canI can relate to that feeling of shame but really there is nothing to be ashamed about,most people get mood swings to a certain degree, some alot more severe than others. To me people who struggle with severe mood swings and who learn to be able to sit with those moods and not let those emotions do something they don’t want to are admired and anyone aiming to reach that goal is equally deserving of that admiration because that’s tough. The future is never as bad as we think it will be,you can get through this and be stronger person for it!

    • Thanks for the advice. I just feel guilty when I get in my mood swings because the only reason I do comes from how I feel about MYSELF. When I treat my friends according to those swings I feel so guilty because I’m not trying to hurt them, I just feel super insecure about myself sometimes, then I let my anxiety take over. I just need better coping mechanisms. Do you have any that help you?
