Or even if you don’t consider yourself and empath, would you rate what your anxiety and or depression has been like over the last two weeks? 🙏🏻❤️

I’m trying to find the words to describe how affected I’ve been in the last couple of weeks.

Everything...the absorbing, the feeling, the inability to process, filter, extenuate has all been so incredibly high. There was one point where I looked into whether or not a full moon was drawing near because I felt that outside of myself. (When I searched for that answer, the full moon was in fact the next night.) Yesterday after lunch I completely crashed with little warning. I hadn’t felt that consumed by tiredness in some time, and that’s coming from someone who suffers from insomnia. I rested, legit rested and woke up feeling like a reset had come. Just like that, things started to make more sense to me and I could think more clearly. Moments like this don’t stick around for too long so I’m not allowing myself to feel too overly confident about this shift, but I am soaking it up and enjoying peace being there more than it has been.

If any of this sounds familiar, try to find time to rest from the world and even yourself because the mind can be just as draining as outside forces that don’t know which end is up. Probably more so because our mind is something we can’t escape. We can help direct its energy though with enough light, love, and/or peaceful breaks from taking so much in.

[@436944,PerfectionOfTheHeart] Beautiful as always and I’m so thankful you found rest and reset ❤️

I don’t know what the heck I am anymore. I’d say I’m treading water, and the sky above is a beautiful blue and right over there’s a dreamy island, but I haven’t the energy to swim, only to tread. No one can rescue me and that island’s probably too far away even if I can muster some oomph, so I’m mostly just drawing breath and trying to enjoy the view. The next moment might be lovely, but it can’t quite erase the dread of what’s to come. 🤷‍♀️

[@23104,JustNik] This.... there for me there is some panic associated with that tread. 😘

I'm just a mess atm. Even my relationship is being burnt to the ground. I can't see a way out
HotMessExpress102 · 41-45, F
[@467717,Gangstress] I’m so sorry. 😔

I tried something today that is supposed to help... 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of water. It’s supposed to calm you and balance your ph. I did just try it and I do feel a little bit clearer in my mind and heart.

Anxiety and depression is a very real thing and there are lots of people that just don’t understand how hard it is sometimes.

Blessings and peace to you ❤️

I think 4-6 is a legit number... for so many reasons, and I know I'm not alone. It's definitely been worse, and also better. I am hopeful for a better future. I just wish it wouldn't wait so darn long to get here...

[@2159,CCMorgan] I am actively working on myself and I do know I will find my way.

My wish for you and everyone here is to do the same ❤️
I'm barely keeping it together. I've written about it, only to be left feeling worse. I've even went on trips, but can't escape it.😐

[@1137766,DandelionDesires] Not that it will make you feel better, but I did ask this question because I read about the stars and the universal pull right now and apparently it’s WAY bad for a lot of people. 🤷🏼‍♀️

I do too pray it releases its hold on all of us very soon!
[@15873,HotMessExpress102] Oh wow! I can believe it, we're basically made of stardust after all, and the cosmos is more powerful than most think, imo. I know it isn't Covid related because I'm reclusive by nature. Damn it, I hope so too! Sigh...😕

The last two weeks have fueled my anxiety - I’ll leave it at that.

[@11805,Noble] Thank you for sharing that. I’ve struggled greatly.
