Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

My above post illustrates my pessimism and despair. Remembering that I couldn't have imagined being who I am today a couple of years a go, reminds me that anything may happen. Explored the pessimism and despair last night, saw them for what they are, a waste of head space. The pessimism is a learned...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

So, I'm trying to reconcile myself to probably never having a relationship. I'm well into my forties, it has been fifteen years since I have dated. These days, I am morbidly obese, food is my only coping mechanism, I cannot see myself losing significant weight anytime soon. I find it hard to accept ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry 30 September Said goodbye to my counsellor of 18 months yesterday, I'll really miss her. Tears and hugs occurred. Was really nice that she didn't charge me for the session. Made so many gains working together. The big dog is that I am now beginning to value myself and feel good about mys...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary entry 27 September 2020 Still feeling relaxed :). My motivation has seriously slipped in recent weeks. Not been doing much walking, dieting or anything else. I put that down to the heavy MH work I've been doing, along with the loneliness and boredom of lockdown. Now it is past time to engage s...

Diary Entry 25 September 2020

Been feeling strange the last couple of days. Not tired, just not tense.
Maybe this is what relaxed feels like? :)

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry 22 September 2020 Second to last counselling session today. It was really emotionally draining but also really productive. Some weeks ago, I managed to get in touch with the emotions of very young me (somewhere between toddler and six) and I got as close to crying as I can, wet eyed and ...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary entry 21 September Been attacking my belief that acquaintances and strangers are dangerous via CBT today. On a break, this stuff is tough. Tackled the feeling where I didn't want to leave my home because there were people outside and the belief that I would be verbally and perhaps physically a...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry 20 September 2020 So, over the last few weeks, I have been slowly slipping down the well of depression. Tonight, I am full of sadness and sorrow and a little jealousy. I used to love living in a student area. At this time of year, the energy and excitement of the freshers is wonderful. T...

Re: Emotional resilience and the impact of its lack

Diary Entry 18 September 2020

My thinking and my anger is moving over to the bullies among my childhood peers. This bullying, at school and in the neighbourhood, has had a much bigger impact on me than I have previously realised. Having been bullied by so many people is a hard thing for me to admit.
