Lately my friends and religious leaders have been pressuring me to do stuff that I wouldn’t say is fun in the slightest.
I would just say no but I can’t I’m way to “nice” of a person to say that, and it bothers me that I’m getting so many requests and assignments, my life feels heavy on my shoulders.
My friends say things to my religious leaders in front of the group to volunteer me to do something and then the “spotlight” is pointed towards me, so if I say no I look heartless, and if I say yes I’m doing something that nobody else wants to do (including me).
What do I do? I can try avoiding my religion, but I’ll look like I’m inactive or need conversion.
I feel stuck and taken advantage of.
PS. I know this is technically supposed to be in Anxiety but it’s like a ghost town there.
I know it was touched on briefly before but what is it abot that time of year makes us off. For me I seem to loose jobs that time of year and the holidays have lost their meanings.
I’ve been having this obsessive thought for over a week now of being back in high school in art class. The thought is of me running an exacting knife across my wrist. Not meaning to cut or harm myself, just kinda playing with it. Only I never ever did that at all. But the thought occurs obsessively throughout the day. And the thought is making me want to cut. I feel like the thought won’t go...
