Lonely? Desperate? Get Lost!

Posted 28th July 2015 at 14:07 by indigo777

I hear the advice often of making sure you donít come across as too desperate, too eager to other people.

You've got to have a dream
If you don't have a dream
How you gonna have a dream come true?


I try to write things down sometimes to help me understand , to make me feel better but honestly my mind is so dead most mornings that even putting a coherent sentence together is difficult and everything becomes muddled and mixed up. This is even when I dont drink so its a depression thing. Likewise trying to be positive or friendly on an anxiety forum is so hard I have given...

Do these positive affirmation things really help?

Posted 3rd June 2015 at 13:47 by indigo777

I have never particularly liked the obsession with positive affirmations as if they work for everybody and the almost insinuation that people who dont like them are just being negative or wallowing in self pity.

I read this the other day on a shyness blog;

In fact, every scientific study recently done on affirmations has consistently shown that they donít work, and can even make you feel worse!

The researchers asked people with low self-esteem to say...
