Resentment and exhaustion are just part of life, right? Constant frustration and frequent crying for no reason are …. well, are they normal?
You can’t turn your brain off and stop overthinking. When you’re still, your brain thinks of all these terrible things that might happen. You KNOW it’s not rational, and these things probably won’t happen, but what if they did?! It’s enough to make you feel crazy.
You know you take on too much, but you can’t say no when someone asks you for help. You’re the go-to for everything. Since you HATE confrontation saying no is definitely not an option. You’d feel so selfish if you took a break or declined another project- but you’re exhausted.
Maybe you know your family life was fcked up, or perhaps you think it was good but you don’t remember most of it (but your know your dad was an alcoholic). Either way, you want to learn from your past and not let it define you.
