Do an exercise with me.. ask yourself:

What is it?

(just write down all of your thoughts and feelings in example) i am tired of trying, i feel useless

What does it mean?

(this helps you find the core of the thought and find the logic or reasons behind your thoughts and feelings i. ex.) I have had a rough time lately and I am tired. When i am tired it’s hard to do stuff which makes me feel useless.

What can I do?

(here write a plan of action weather you can do something about it or not i. ex.) I need to give myself space to feel tired. I need to figure out if there are reasons why I feel this tired. (now add an affirmation, you don’t need to believe it right away. i. ex.) I am smart and capable I can figure this out. I know myself better than anyone.

Now breathe in time with this. It’s gonna be ok.

here’s the tough part.. You need to keep doing this.. I need to keep doing this…

you can’t guilt someone into recovering. that isn’t supporting them. recovery is a choice they have to make for themself and it isn’t beneficial to add to their struggles.

assess what your strengths are when it comes to supporting someone and offer them when you can when you can. ask what they need instead of assuming what will be helpful. distraction, comfort, advice, and just listening are some basic and general options.

“I always remember that I have created my judgments along the way. Something I would have thought as fantastic five years ago, I might consider neutral, or even bad, now. So judgments change, and that fact alone makes them unreliable. For me, I don’t take them too seriously. Especially the negative self-talk, which is mostly a bunch of nonsense. 

It’s also possible to hate oneself because of our past actions or inactions. Some actions are indeed evil, like deliberately making other people suffer or engaging in self-sabotage. In those cases, I think that negative judgment, or at least a slight aversion towards my actions, is helpful to get myself on the right path. However, beating myself up all the time doesn’t help anyone. Negative self-talk, especially when the negative self-talk is flawed or based on irrational thinking, can be very harmful.”

hello again😊

today I wanted to try and make a post about loneliness

I feel lonely a lot of the time, even when I’m around people that I love, sometimes it’s like there’s glass between me and everyone else. I don’t think I connect with people very well because I feel different from other people like everyone else knows the rules on how you’re supposed to talk and walk and act and I don’t know them so I’m not very good at being around other people, there are some members of our system that don’t feel like this and they know how to do stuff right

Well anyway I thought I’d try and put stuff that might help anyone that feels lonely

find a group of people with similar interests - so this could be here on tumblr, maybe follow tags of stuff that you like and maybe try talking to people that post the kind of stuff you’re interested in, maybe even Facebook groups? Or even groups in real life, like I keep an eye out for posters advertising stuff in the community like art classes and photography stuff (maybe this isn’t applicable right now but maybe when we can go outside again)

Reach out to the people in your life - this is something that I forget a lot of the time, when I feel sad and alone it can be easy for me to forget that there are people in my life, sometimes I call my grandparents and see how they’re doing and if there’s anything that they need, sometimes I check in with my sisters, I might post a funny video in my friends group chat and see how they’re all doing, (I know that this may not be possible for everyone but maybe try and reconnect with other people that are already in your life that you love)

Put on videos with people talking- I don’t know if this is just me but sometimes if I’m lonely or if my head is going funny, I put on a podcast and hearing the people talk can be comforting background noise and if I’m hearing stuff that isn’t there it can help drown it out

Practice self care- whatever that looks like for you, maybe take some time and give yourself some love, when I’m by myself Im trying to rethink it as time for myself, I make a cup of tea and put on a nice video and grab my sketchbook, maybe it can help

this isn’t as long as the posts I usually make like this but I thought maybe I could put something out there, I think also that therapy can be very beneficial for working through issues that you have but I know it isn’t possible for everyone

And if you just want someone to talk to, our messages are always open ❤️

Do you know how to get resources without approaching parents who may be unsupportive? I have cash but no type of card, and I can walk (I have no license) to Walgreen's, CVS, and 7/11, but those are about it. I'm transgender and have gotten diagnosed with ASD and ADHD, but they don't believe either and I desperately need a binder or stim toys (I've resorted to chewing and scratching myself, which is Not Good) but I can't get them.

Walgreen’s and CVS in my experience have more general retail items in their stores, so you might peruse the toy or fitness aisles to see if there is anything you can use for stimming.

https://whoneedssexed.com/post/152051630234/diy-stim-toys-masterpost

As for a binder, you’re likely out of luck because all retailers I know sell online, which will either need a card or will need a bank account to process payments with. There used to be exchanges where people sent their used binders to others in need, but I don’t know that they exist anymore?

Here are our trans and mental health resource tags for anything else that might be helpful:

How do you learn to take care of your emotions and communicate with ither people about how the things that they think are helping are actually hurting you a lot. I know vauge posting on tumblr isnt actually helpful, but its a start to me organizing my emotions so i can explain my problems better and maybe make things better for everyone involved. Please dont yell at me for this.


Im tired of being treated like a child and not having my boundaries respected. We are in the same age range, please do not infantilize me.


What you see as me avoiding a situation is actually me having acknowledged it already and trying to move on with the conversation. When you insist on continuing to berate me over my mistake it just makes it worse for me and causes my brain to go into a darker place. Please respect when i ask for it to stop and move on.


There are just so many other things that hurt so much but i don’t want to mention to you because i know youll just turn it back on me.


Im working really hard and despite being in a low spot overall right now. Ive actually made a lot of progress. But then you will maximize one thing and it hurts a lot and makes it feel like my progress and efforts dont matter.
