Down and defeated

I feel so lonely and hopeless. Whats the point in trying? No one can stand against the dark

Feelings can be so strong, but they may not be in any way accurate.

A lot of my misleading feelings come from thoughts that are distortions of what has happened.

When I am feeling similar to what you are expressing I find something simple to do that requires me to move and walk somewhere in doing it.

The simplest everyday activity is shopping for groceries. I do have an exciting life:)

When I do this shopping, I ensure I smile at people and be pleasant to people and expect nothing back. But if I do receive any response, I treasure it as the gift that it is.

Exercising and giving when it is hardest has helped me.

Good luck!
I know what you mean. I’m facing my shadows, doing the work, but most aren’t. Don’t even understand. You always tell me keep going, my turn to tell you. I don’t know if we can change anything, but we can build our lives as we want because we have courage.

@BrokenAbyss do you mind if i ask why you struggle with getting close to people? You dont have to if you dont want to.

It's only dark until the sun comes up. I've had those feelings before and it is possible to get better.

The point of trying is to get through the day and to live for the things you love.....

If you stand in darkness then you need to be the source of the light.
