Giving up

Postby Lonelytimes » Wed Jan 15, 2020 6:23 pm

Never posted on any forums before but today has been a bad day. I’ve suffered with depression and anxiety since my teen years I’m now in my late 20s I don’t know how much longer I can go on with this. I’m off work sick due to this having breakdowns and loosing my temper at the wrong people. I’ve told myself so many times now to hang on for those few people that I love and I know love me. But can’t help but think that if I keep going continuously going through these vicious circles just for those things what if In 5 or even 10 years I look back nothing has changed I’m still stuck in this endless pain when I could just end it all now. I mean it’s already been going on so long clearly it’s not going away any time soon. Like most I don’t know what if anything happens when you die but even complete darkness and silence would be better then this. Thoughts?

When I struggled with anxiety I never imaged a life without anxious thoughts. Only a life where I learned to live life with it this weekend I sat in a restaurant with my husbands family and genuinely enjoyed myself. I couldn't of imagined this is the thick of it. But here I was enjoying myself. This is possible for anyone.

Nothing has changed because you have let it be that way. The people who love you will leave you because the negative feelings you have could lead them to be driven away, but its an easy fix. Anxiety is state of mind. Your angry with yourself and at life, change the mentality and then things will change for you. Dont let negative thoughts influence your choices in life.
