Moving forward

Hey everyone 


I have recientaly been struggling with how to move from whats making me upset and down i keep trying to find ways but i keep feeling like im hitting a brick wall 


Re: Moving forward

@Farmchick  Hi Farmchick I know exactly what you mean. I have excessive feelings of guilt which at times have held me back for 9 years. My pdoc has said to me on numerous occassions isn't 9 years enough time to persecute oneself over events which happened when I was extremely ill. I don't know what the answer is ..... well I do I want to be totally honest with my loved ones about what happened but if I do that it could break up the bond between family members ..... so I have to carry around this burden of guilt until I can finally get the courage to shed it....


I tell you one thing that has helped me is my spirituality. I am not a religious person but spiritual and I find that believing in a all forgiving creator and trying to be a good person and repentant really helps me.
