get depressed when we are overwhelmed?
well, I can see why...
overwhelmed means afraid......afraid we do not have what we need to do it all or cope.
And fear is not easy to feel. So we change that to anger to feel more in control.
And then we turn that anger towards ourselves if we cannot figure out how to get it out. So maybe this makes sense.
Very quickly if I am overwhelmed, I become depressed.
Like always, has to be broken down into managable steps. And so I will work on this next week. Write down the steps. Also good to talk about feelings so I will on here and with my therapist. Plus, get myself to nature. Journal. Be with friends.
Plus, remember that only one thing has to be done at a time. And that is all that can be done. Then faith and a positive attitude.
I still feel depressed, but I will push myself to take baby steps in a positive direction.
I know I need many many days out in the wilderness so I will try to give that to myself to clear my head.
