Journal Luke727's Journal: I don't know what to do. 2

I feel like I'm trying to treat the symptoms instead of the disease. Wednesday night was bad; last night and this morning (and potentially tonight) were no picnic, either. I don't really enjoy social gatherings (even small ones), but lately I'm not really enjoying being on my own, either; forget about any type of meaningful relationships. Without something to live for, life is a bit pointless. Honestly I just don't know what to do; I may need to seek professional help.

I don't know what to do.

    Never wanted to do it, but I was getting really depressed.

    Just having someone to tell how many stupid people you had to put up with that day helped.

    Psych also provided some coping strategies.

    • Absolutely agree. I always thought of therapy as a great idea for everyone else. I went through it when I was going through my separation and it has helped me immmeasurably.

      The analogy I use is if you think of emotions as muscles. A good therapist is like a personal trainer teaching you how to use your emotions. Plus, its nice having someone on your side.

      Good luck, and feel free to email directly if you feel the need.

He who steps on others to reach the top has good balance.
