I'm at a standstill. It seems like no matter how good things seem to be going (self-care, support system, etc.) it doesn't overcome the feelings of loneliness and impending doom. Part of me is trying to accept that this is what reality feels like. That life itself is just sad. Little glimpses of light peaking through the clouds to let us know that there are good things, but are just out of reach. It feels like once you jump off a conveyor belt of conformity, you're still stuck in a system of some sort. I don't know what to tell myself to get out of this way of thinking/feeling.

@hvi888 I totally get what you mean. I think we're conditioned as a society to fit into little boxes - to act a certain way, think a certain way, dress a certain way, etc. etc. And when you break the mold or don't fit into the box or label or whatever they've decided to pin on you you're labeled as "different" or "weird" or whatever. It can really get to you. Happiness and good things aren't out of your reach, you deserve them too! Try not to let society or other people around you make you feel like you don't deserve to be happy. You do.

I find myself struggling with a circle that I can’t seem to get out of every weekend it’s been the same thing over and over same everything it’s like I’m stuck on a roller coaster the keeps going and going … this last week I’ve been dedicated to break out of it … I’m done drinking done smoking done with anything that leaves me tied to this cycle of hell and depression and let down … I’ve put myself and those close to me in this cycle for too long and hurt those who mean the most to me … I’m dedicated to this change with everything I have .. I just hope it’s not too late

So I went on a mini staycation with my lil family at a nice hotel not far from where I live. We swam ate pizza watched movies had some fun..but something wasn't clicking for me. I had to keep reminding myself to smile act happy. I don't know if it cause I have been in the dark so long I don't want to see the light but damn I feel so empty. Soo dead Insude like no matter what I do....I'm too far gone. Forgot what not feeling like this feels like if that makes any Sense.
