Thanks for the reply.
Mental health is hard for us to get our heads wrapped around mainly due to what ever under lying issue/s are causing the depression and/or anxiety.
For me anger was and sometimes still is a problem, anger and hating the world and everything in it then comes the sadness out of nowhere. Meeting the expectations of others was something that I once thought highly of but after a while it seemed to me that was part of my problem/s ( worrying about) what others thought or expected of me which only caused a downfall when when they wasn’t met once I realized that I started focusing on what I expected from myself and stuff the the others.
When I decided to finally seek help and actually going to see someone brought out the anxiety at first but got easier as time and visits went on but that’s the main thing for us do ( seeking help) rather it’s talking to a close friend/family member and so on which helps a lot as well though the counselor was and at times still plays a big part in the recovery process due to them being a outsider, nonjudgmental. On that note I did see a Facebook post from a registered professional here in Australia who is offering online, phone counseling for a very low fee of $35 a session, I’m happy to get her details for you if you’re interested?
That is my intention as well joining this forum, reading through, communicating with others and how they deal and cope with what they’re going through. With that said Liv, I’m always happy to lend a ear and chat with anyone.
Cheers and have a good day stay positive and safe.
