One of the most frustrating things I’ve found throughout various therapy sessions is the requirement to move beyond things that I keep coming back to in my mind and that undoubtedly hold my mental wellbeing back.
Thing is, it’s easier said than done. So much easier said than done. I feel as though I owe it to myself and those closest to me to keep perservering and pushing through to try and get past them, whilst at the same time recognising that my current inability to so is okay. So long as I am able to manage the feelings to some extent and don’t let the burden of guilt and shame weigh me down to the point where it’s completely overwhelming and affects me long term.
Don’t know if this makes sense or helps - but I think it’s fine so long as you are able to maintain distance from whatever it is more than you can’t.
I have to keep clinging onto the hope that there will be a time where those feelings aren’t at arm’s length.
Stick with it, mate.
