Rough day


Feeling really lonely today, unimportant and somewhat unworthy. I feel like these emotions may get the best of me. Not sure how to reach out when I feel so pitiful...

You seem to be reaching out just fine Charliee.

To me, you're none of those things

Can you try and counter that negative self talk with some positives?

Hang in there, Charliee! The feeling will pass. You are worthwhile!

Sorry you feel so bad, reaching out and talking will help.

When I felt like that I would do something to make me feel good, go for a walk, shop, watch a good film, having a long bath. Try and do something to counteract the feelings of low worth.

Hope you feel better soon.

I totally get it. You did the right thing by reaching out. All you have to do is extend your hand - we'll reach for it & carry you while you need it.

Hugs & love.

Charliee, I hope you are feeling better today. I get those feelings sometimes. It stinks but they usually pass. You did great reaching out here.

I've felt that before but look in the mirror and just smile. Then you'll see you're worth it (the smile helps ).

Hang in there

Just by posting you've helped my sobriety. Being AWARE of the problem and taking ACTION is what i need to do on a day by day basis.

You've shown a PERFECT example of what to do when these feelings surface.

Talk about it! We care! SR cares!

Great that you reached out, Charliee. 'Unimportant' and 'unworthy' don't belong in the same sentence as Charliee.

So now I'm at the dentist, needing a tooth fixed, also needing a pain killer, makes me a little nervous but also a little happy

Hey Hun I hope your feeling a little better now. It seems to be part of the withdrawal and getting used to life sober I think. Felt quite similar a few days ago but feel good tonight. When your having a bad day know that it WILL pass and try to do something nice for yourself even if you don't feel you deserve it at the time because you really do!!
Xx
