    I am new to this sort of thing. Not sure where to even begin: I'm exhausted. Struggling to be present. Pulling myself out of the comfort of bed.Pushing myself into society. Knowing there is much to be thankful for, looking to acknowledge the blessings.Thankful for a beautiful sunrise.

  • I have realized that I get very negative when something bad happens to me, which doesn't have to be very bad, and I also go to the past and it is very difficult for me to get out of the situation and help myself. I start repeating negative thoughts again and again or whatever hurt me and it is quite difficult for me to get out of that.  Does somebody know what can I do to get out of the...
