    "Love yourself"

    "You look beautiful" means nothing unless you believe it So stop telling me that tight black dress looks good on me because honestly I feel disgusting in it And it's too tight around my belly to the point where it makes me want to puke everything I ever ate And stop telling me "love yourself"...

    Is pushing people away basically a fight or flight response?

    Like I noticed today I was in a great mood and decided I wanted to visit my bf at work. I’ve been in a funk the past few days and haven’t wanted to be around anyone, even him. But I figured since I was feeling a bit better I would visit. As soon as I was with him I felt all my walls go up. I...

    Found out something I thought was normal was a symptom

    So I've been chatting with my therapist and I mentioned that some of the things I do, things I either thought were normal or were just casual quirks, and he said these were actually symptoms of my anxiety. For example, I tend to be very compulsive in hand washing. I'll wash my hands dozens of...

    anxiety working in a group but trying hard to make it

    hi, here I am again asking for life advice... I have bad experience with feeling uncomfortable working in a group for one project. Once, I was in a theatre group as one of the choir, and somehow I got into certain awkward situation and couldn’t really talk with anyone in the group. I got...

    It’s a day

    when you start a new medication that could possibly make you nauseous so you are just a ball of anxiety due to your emetophobia, and you’re not sure if you actually feel nauseous, if you’re making yourself feel nauseous by worrying, or if you feel nauseous because it’s also day one of your period

    Can you survive a bad first impression in the workplace

    I made a combination of what I consider good, and what my new acting manager considers bad first impressions. And naturally I am panicking that I'm a complete failure and will never be seen as a valuable employee again. So just I just want to know, is it possible to be seen as a non valuable...
