    hi

    it’s not that important. I’ve been just feeling low from the inside.

    things don’t seem bad. i just feel hurt for no reason

    I’ve been following this artist recently, and I noticed they often post about their hardships and things they go through in life. The stories they shared were very sad. It included suicide, and childhood traumatic memories, and physical voilence. It made me really worried and concerned about their condition. I reached out to them, they replied. Then I messaged them some days later again. But never heard back from them. I didn’t take it personally though. I know we’re complete strangers and yada yada.

    somehow the topic of suicide and other things have been stuck i my head. i feel something quietly sad in me. i know these are just fleeting feelings and won’t even matter in some days. but i just wanted to tell soneone that i’m hurt right now. i just want someone to listen about this hurt i don’t know why. it doesn’t even matter.

    anyway thanks for reading if you did

    Dear Javaira:

    Welcome back, I am glad to read from you again, and hope to read from you again and again, whenever you feel like posting.

    “I’ve been just feeling low from the inside. things don’t seem bad. I just feel hurt for no reason”- it is the hurt from the past, when there was a reason to feel hurt.

    When we feel intensely bad as children, those intensely bad feelings don’t disappear, they are still there under the surface, and  they rise to the surface once in a while, sometimes spontaneously, in a dream, at other times just because we feel tired or unwell, or when something reminds us of a time when we hurt (for a reason).

    We remember hurt sometimes without remembering the events regarding the hurt, that is, we re-experience feelings.

    How about listening to your favorite music,  maybe sad music that will help you to cry,  or taking a walk outside in the cool fresh air, feeling energized again.. or both things, at different times?

    hi anita,

    thank you once again.

    i got you. it’s that hurt perhaps. As you said “we remember the hurt sometimes without remembering the events.” that really felt correct to me.

    i actually tried taking a walk(i love walks) and have been listening to music too(both sad and happy), cried a lot too. Any more suggestions?

    Dear Javaira:

    You are welcome. More suggestions: mindful guided meditations (the Mark Williams series available online free, I believe), an online or in-person yoga class, a variety of classes available perhaps in a gym, watching a pg-13 movie or comedy show, taking a nap, a hot bath, a cool shower, hot tea, work in the yard, if you have a yard, and look under Blogs in the Home Page, I bet you will find ideas there.
