Self-care – Yes, I realize I have to take care of myself, but my self-care may not look like what one might imagine or expect. I’m doing the best I can and some types of self-care are out of my reach or near impossible right now. I don’t need people criticizing how I’m taking care of myself right now. If you don’t like it or agree with it, you can keep your opinions to yourself because I have absolutely no patience for it anymore.
Any variation of “You’ve hit rock bottom, there’s nowhere to go but up” – Seriously? Why are you tempting the universe with that? I was pretty sure I had already hit the worst part of this year and then the universe rudely reminded me that I have control over nothing.
“You’re not alone” – I know I have a lot of support, but I’m still very much alone when it comes to certain aspects of this whole shitshow. Please know that I am grateful for those people who have reached out and are ready to help, but I wish someone would acknowledge this. I feel like something is wrong with me because I still feel alone. Maybe there is something wrong with me.
