So tired all the time.
The anxiety over this job thing is killing me.
DO YOU EVER JUST GET NERVOUS ABOUT LITERALLY NOTHING AND YOU DONT KNOW WHY BUT YOU ARE
All the damn time.
I think there’s a common misconception that depression is about something or depression is sadness or some form of negativity. It can represent a sadness or a self-loathing, as the first half of my depression did. It sort of circled back on itself and made me dislike myself more because I was so sad and I didn’t know why and I felt like I needed a reason. … It took me a long time to figure out that something was broken on a fundamental level. There was no reason behind it; it was just the way things were.

It’s only 56 days before 2014 and I feel like the only thing I’ve done this year was disappoint everyone including myself
I usually feel good after socializing too, but then I require a day or two of no people to recover. :p
SAME! My mom is such an extrovert and she thinks it’s crazy that if I go out like once or twice a week I’m feelin’ good about my socializing level.
I need recoup time.
Ugh my mom’s the same. I work as a cashier, so I work 25 hours a week at a job that literally involves constantly dealing with people.
So on my days off, I want/need to stay inside and be alone to recover. But because I’m an introvert and my mom is an insane extrovert, she’s obsessed with the idea that I spend all my time “isolated” in the house and need to be around people more, so she never lets up on me about it.
I usually go hang out at Starbucks a day or two a week, (I usually work 4 days a week), and the rest of the time stay home and cuddle with my cats. For me, that’s plenty.
But not for my mom, because god forbid I would have a better idea of what is good for me than she would, especially because she doesn’t know me at all…
