A chant of nononononononotagainpleasenotagainnotthisnopleasenotherenotthis. Not this, not again. No, no please. No feelings, just a crushing weight and not understanding why and not being able to escape. Trying hard, and yet failing and falling harder every time, and having the feeling of getting up only to have the rug pulled out from under your feet again.
It's been a bad week. I feel like crying all the time now. I want more than anything to do well, but it feels like I just fail at everything I try at and I've started to not even care anymore. I'm scared and anxious and depressed and it feels like there's a bowling ball in my stomach that keeps me from being happy. I feel like I'm unfeeling, I can't understand emotion anymore. I offend people without meaning to because I don't know what to say or how to speak and everyone knows when I smile I don't mean it. I don't want to be like this again, and I know it can't get any worse than it was last year, I don't want to go back to that, not ever, but I can't help it. I'm scared.
I know this is barely a show entry, but I wanted to do an entry for Otachi this week, and I just couldn't make anything happy or show-y. Sorry, no story this week. Thinking of doing something next week. I've always wanted to use 'The Tempest', so maybe next time.
This is so amazing in combination with the music, it amplifies eachother very well! Also, I love the flowers and adornments, the pose and the lighting! And the tail and the background.. Well actually it's just very good overall! And the poem thingy suits it nicely too, though I hope you're feeling better nowadays
Days are on and off right now - sometimes there are good days, sometimes there are bad days. But I have always liked the quote "Bad times are just times that are bad." - kind of reminds me that every day will not be awful forever
You're welcome Yes that's a simple but very good quote. I don't know your exact situation, but when I was feeling very depressed and tired I even began to like feeling that way, perhaps that was a way of accepting it and slowly letting it go. And I guess the worse you feel, the better the good times may feel thereafter. You just have to go through it and make art to get your feelings out
Yeah, last year was really bad for me and I've been trying really hard not to get like that again uvu;; I don't think I will (I was almost suicidal at some points last year, and I do NOT want to be in that place again - and I couldn't talk to anyone about anything because of my anxiety keeping me from talking at all, so it was really hard to get out of that without help), but I can't help being scared of the fear itself ; A ; guh dumb anxiety dumb depression I can't wait until I can get out of this town, I've been bad ever since we moved here uvu;;
I suffered from something that seems like what you described, coincidentally. I know the fear you face. Thank you for opening up to me like this. It's really good to know that you consider us friends to this extent. If you ever need to talk, I am right here. Please don't feel uncomfortable dropping me a note sometime. <3
