I'm so tired of this endless cycle


My problem may seem insignificant to some, but for me its just ruining my life.

I could be feeling so happy, having fun or whatever, but then I'll suddenly remember something upsetting. Like the time some of my bullies saw me in a bar and poured a drink over me. Or the time my 'friend' stole money from me. Or the time someone brutally insulted me. I could literally go on and on and on. I go over these same memories constantly. Once they are in my mind I cannot get them out.

I cannot seem to break free from this, after YEARS of going through the same thing, I have had enough and I feel desperate for it to stop

Although it goes a tad different for me, I can relate a lot. At one second, you find yourself doing just fine and 5 seconds later your world has turned upside down. Only thing I can advise you to do, is to talk to someone about it, be it a friend, family member or a therapist. Stay strong out there.

I can definitely relate. I'm never fully relaxed, I mean never! My mind is always being invaded by intrusive thoughts, and they can even distort my perception of the past, making it seems way worse than it really was.

I'm only at fully mental peace when I"m sleeeping

Do you have an outlet for them? Have you spoken to someone about them? Maybe if you have an outlet for them, they won't interrupt your thoughts so much x

When people are in good spirits, they usually become more open and more trusting of the world. Part of you might be bringing up those hurtful memories as a way to prevent your openness from leading to additional pain.
