    Had a tough day and just typing my thoughts.
    I crave attention but I don't know how to handle it when I receive it.
    I feel lonely but I push people away and prefer to be alone.
    I'm emotional but I find it hard to express my emotions and feelings.
    I help others be positive but I'm negative about myself.
    I'm pretty messed up 🙈🤯
    Tomorrow is a new day

    This shows a lot of self-awareness. I can relate to a lot of what you said. Hope your day improves.. ❤️

    Thank you ❤️

    I wonder if most people wake up to greet the day with hope and eagerness, bring it on type of feeling or try to hide their head back under their pillow, cursing, automatically figuring it's gonna be a bust.

    My boyfriend says he wakes up every day wondering, "What fresh hell is this?" But he's been depressed for years.

    I wake up and sort of tranquilly wonder what possibilities I have today, and lay there for a second and sort out what hurts and how badly (Fibromyalgia) because that will impact it, point out to myself that getting up on time prevents migraines, and once I'm up I'm good.

    While I don’t always like getting out of a comfy bed, I like mornings. It’s when I work out so I have my me time and mornings are fresh and full of no mistakes or heaviness yet (usually). Plus breakfast is my favourite meal so it’s not a drag to get up.

    Mid-afternoon on the other hand, the WORST time of day.

    The most accurate wake up statement ever. I also have clinical depression, so maybe that's why.

    I read this in a comical manner and would personally say it that way until you reminded me he's dealing with depression.

    I wake up surprised to be alive and then thank God before a round of morning devotions.

    Tomorrow, I may just end with "Now... What fresh hell is this?" (but in my giggling way) in honour of your partner.

    The fact that - despite the statement- he still gets up, gets to it (even if slowly even if partially) and eventually gets the day started means he's a warrior. So are you 🤗

    It largely depends on if I am doing fun things, or boring things that day.

    I think self-awareness is something many people don't do much of. They don't like admitting why they feel a certain way. This is why I like this thread a lot. It kinda gives you an outlet for whatever it is that's weighing you down yet you open yourself up to the rawness of it. I am seeing bits and pieces of myself in many of these posts then I hug the crap out of them in hopes that they know they aren't alone in those feelings.

    For me, it takes a bit more quiet/still time than I have most days, so I don't get to really think/reflect as much as I'd like. A lot of that is COVID related... Hard to find time away/alone right now.

    I don't tend to think about days as being good or bad, but most mornings I wake up thinking about what I'm going to do or accomplish that day. So most days start with the potential to be productive, beneficial days. That usually goes out the window around 10:30am.

    Take care of yourself #1 lady - *kitten* all your other responsibilities (other than your kids and you)...
    Its 'hard to do' (for me, anyway) but just take the time off, for you. If anyone has a problem with that in your life - red flag...rethink that situation
