  1. Hi Blueskys Thanks for sharing and I'm so happy that things are going well for you. Pushing your comfort zone definitely hits home for me. Something else you said really struck a cord which was to take pride in your baby steps, even if its only to make up ground from yesterday. There was someone I spoke to that said something very similar to that and it has stuck with me ever since. Thanks again for sharing and Merry Christmas!
  2. Hey there I'm so so sorry to hear about the passing of your wife. It's good that you have your family there to support you, even if they can't totally understand what you're going through. Despite everything that you have been through, you seem to have a positive outlook which is very inspiring. I hope things work out with the counseling and hope things start to get better for you overall. Wishing you nothing but the best.
  3. Hi Crewneck, I know this is a bit late, but I'd like to give my perspective in hopes that it will help you. A bit like you, I was hopeful that I would be able to land a job right after I was finished school, but job interviews always felt like a test in which the interviewer was just waiting for me to do or say one wrong thing. When I didn't get the job, all I could do is wonder what I did wrong. It never occurred to me that maybe I was perfect among a pool of other perfect candidates, but they could only choose one. I know how it feels to think you're not good enough, but try to understand that our mind can convince us of a lot of things if we let it. I believe confidence stems from the ability to ignore that annoying voice in your head that tells you that you can't. Everything that has been achieved started with the belief that it could be done. Try to set a goal of sending out a few resumes a day and don't take it personal if you don't receive a response back. There are a million reasons why you may not hear back or may not get a job after being called in; none of which may have had anything to do with your performance, so don't beat yourself up over it. Also, I don't know what you studied, but many people find that they are unable to get a job in the field that went to school for and that's OK. You may get into something else that you really enjoy and maybe you can continue trying to find a job in that particular field once you are financially stable. Wishing you the best.
  4. Hi there, I am sorry that you are going through this. I have always wished I knew exactly what I could do or say to help people dealing with depression, but it's not always that simple. If you need people to talk to, we are here for you. If you need to speak privately, you can pm me as well. Please be kind to yourself. Wishing you nothing but happiness
  5. Hi FerryJerry I was going to say exactly what Extremebeginner said; there may be other alternatives for exercise such as swimming, which has been found to be very useful for people that have trouble exercising normally. I find that instead of saying the typical, "things will get better", it's much better to say, you don't know what the future holds. I was in a dark place at one time and I would be lying if I said the my mind didn't go to horrific thoughts, but I'm still here today and although things aren't perfect in my life, I'm doing better. Have you tried joining a support group? The fact that your significant other got upset at you for not helping leads me to believe that she doesn't understand the severity of your condition. I think it would be helpful for you two to sit down and have a talk about this because this seems like an ongoing problem that isn't going to go away. Maybe it's also possible to figure out why the cat isn't using the litter box; it could be health related. I only suggest these things because you're at a time in your life in which you need as much support as you can get and I wouldn't want something like this to cause a rift between your significant other and you as it seems to be doing.
  6. I think most, if not all people wear a mask to disguise their true feelings. There are expectations placed on us from family, friends and society in general, even if they aren't aware of them. Even with me, there's only so much I'm willing to tell. Those that may tell you that they'll never judge you are only saying it in the moment. They have little control over how their perception may change if they hear something they weren't prepared to. Even if they truly would never think differently of you, if that person means that much to you, why would you want to risk telling them and possibly losing them forever in the process? I'd much rather just keep certain things to myself for better or worse.
  7. This was written for what feels like ages ago. Yeah, I always thought it would just come to me one day like an epiphany. People would always tell me "don't worry you'll figure it out", so I thought I would growing up. I honestly don't know if there is something we're all destined to do with our life. As disheartening as that may sound to some, I do believe life is whatever we make it to be. I am in a much better place now. Thank you :)
