hey everyone, need some help/advice.. again (eye roll)..

For the past month or so I keep taking on depressive states and whether its beginning to drown my own energy or this person/s (suspecting more than 1) depression getting worse?

Iv'e been trying my faith practices to see if I can disassociate from them + heal myself and them, which sometimes I think helps but after a period of cleansing i'm questioning whether  I'm opening myself up more to these depressive energies and hence why I keep taking on more or attracting more? I think I figured out what helps and why (faith related) and its having like a magnet effect? which I guess might be tricky for anyone to shed light in this regard but here's to wishful thinking!

iv'e not actually taken on depressive states like this in the past, except on one occasion and that was moons ago and before I knew I was an empath..

what's worked for others?

salt baths again don't do anything in regards to this (tried a couple). being a vessel and allowing it to resonate and pass is very draining and fear consequences of it in my own personal relationships, (the longer i'm in these states I lose my sense of self)

crystals iv'e tried in the past for other enegies mainly emotions, not sure if they would have any affect in this case.. my own protection amulet not doing much either.. 

:/

@spiritualskies:

As an empath when you are anxious and depressed, that's a red flag that your chakras are too open and you are taking on too much energy. The steps to feel better start with removing/grounding that energy. And then working on closing and better balancing your chakras.

I would normally suggest several daily salt baths. But you don't seem to do well with those (although that's normally the #1 helper in this situation for fellow empaths so you may want to continue to try it). Are you near a lake or ocean? A swim in either place helps (especially salty water of the ocean will help). Grounding is basically off-loading that low energy and refilling your own personal high vibrational energy. Some people do that through meditation. But honestly, it  happens when you are out in nature, and doing things that you love. Some empaths feel better going for nice hike out in the forest. But another good option is music. Empaths as a general rule are very positively impacted by music. I would suggest going outside with a headset on while listening to some of your favorite happy music. Or watch a favorite musical movie that you like. Just make sure you do all of these things by yourself. Even having one person with you interferes with your energy.

Crystals are also a great way to balance out your chakras. Which ones are you using now?

I have that same problem where energy seems to be attracted to something in me....I can clear it as much as I want but it seems the energy just FLOATS or flys right in...and it seems to be at a place in my left chest where there's a valve in our soul body that controls the the entrance and exit of extreme emotional energy...that's where most energy that enters my system seems to end up...right at that spot...i've been trying to figure out if the valve is misfuctioning or someone is tampering with it on purpose...which is what i'm leaning towards as I keep clearing it to the point where I'm feeling relief and no more pain and something always comes back to restart the whole process....it also seems to be a vortex that collect negative energy as that when it returns the energy starts building and gravitates to that one spot...it affects my entire system....this for me is not a question of me being the cause or anything that I'm doing to make this happen...its something someone either human or not is doing TO me....for a purpose I dont quite understand....

The energy that enters of course is full of other people nasty low level vibrations and crappy thoughts and it goes throughout my system....it works a lot like anxiety as those thought forms get into my own brain and set up shop making it difficult to think sometimes....I know none of what's going on in my head is me at all....its taken me a long time to figure this much out...lol...

Depression is a miserable thing to go through. I've been there many times so I feel for both of your. Especially when you can't identify the cause. And empath depression is just like that. You often can't figure out where the energy is coming from that is effecting you.

I've been reading a lot of books on negative energy and how it lowers a person's vibration. And in one book the author said that it's been proven that taking long showers releases negative energy. In fact the author cited the use of showers as being common relief prescribed for depressed patients by their psychiatrists. I was wondering if either of you would want to try that (although I know Karen has some water limitations). From my understanding, taking a shower while depressed is kind of like taking an aspirin while having a fever. The aspirin will make you feel better for 3-4 hours. I think the shower similarly gives you short term relief. But that in itself could be helpful.

Depression from others is not the same as your own...knowing what happens at the energy level and how to clear anything not yours is important....I've found that not all technics work 100% of the time on certain types of energy....doing energy root pulling for the most part works the best on all types of energy as everything we feel is linked to us via cords...the psychic attacks from others who are using this form of energy purposefully to hurt others it works but it's like unravelling a yarn ball...it takes time and fiddling to break these things but it can be done...THEN you use the methods to relax and clear residual energies, do soul repair on your own energy...repair holes in your energy field...etc....learn to do energy work on your own energy after that you'll know exactly what's going on and what to do for each situation....

@womanwhowalks:

Excellent points. Except that you're talking about some advanced concepts that I don't think a lot of empaths know how to do. It took me quite a while to discern which is outside energy and which is my own. As it turned out the most depressing feelings I had were not my own. But they still made me feel upset and depressed so it was all very confused. When you're at that point, you just want to feel better. What ended up helping me was finding alternate methods to pull myself out of the dumps via grounding techniques. And I did that through salt baths, crystal work, and self-care (extra sleep, doing more enjoyable things like exercise outside etc...).

But if you could better explain your methods then maybe it's not as hard as I think it is to practice?

And while I do believe there are people out there who know how to practice psychic attacks, I also have seen with my own eyes people who have that ability and do it unknowingly. You know the type. The extremely jealous, or alpha male/female types. If you look at them wrong or try to threaten their dominance they strike with ugly looks, and words. My point being, there are a lot more psychic attacks going on then we can really quantify. And then add that to how many people are just unhappy in the world, and all of us poor empaths have a lot to overcome each day.

I do know all that too...root pulling works on that stuff too...you encounter a person you talk to them they connect to you via energy cords they attach to your energy you start receiving foreign energy everything they feel think etc is now being transferred to you...if you don't pull it out it continues...that how it works....you have to pull it out roots and all residual energy needs to be removed from your energy in order to stop the energy transfer...residual energy will eventually leave but only if the connection to the person in severed and completely removed...I dont do it for everyone anymore but will do a complete removal periodically to even out my energy...the more you do the better you feel...meditate like you would to sever cords but pull the cords out by the root instead...dont cut...pull...you also have to patch up the holes the roots leave behind...I knot everything...pull it together and tie a knot...some fill the holes with light...but for me  I look at the holes as an open would on the skin that needs to be sewn up or patched up in some way in order to keep closed so it wont be infected again...to find the cords think of the person you want removed...you will feel a tug somewhere in your energy...follow that pain ...that pain will be the root....it might be in a memory or a part of the body and just pull...

lol..why else do you think I disappear from this place for long periods of time?...every time I I open this site up I'm overloaded with ALL its members in this site and some of that energy I have to pull out and give myself a rest...I plug in....then I have to unplug to stop the energy from coming in...its not all good energy on this site...but I keep coming back so it not all bad...lol

I'm not a fan of depression, and I to get waves of it. Going out in nature has helped the best for me and remaining active. It seems what my heart and soul desire, but that brain. It always says "no, go back to bed" I recently hit a bad depression this year. I went out and bought a treadmill as the weather was still not great. I just felt I had to move my body. It was over powering, but again that brain. I went overboard and used it for over an hour. I noticed at a certain time into it, I'd have a burst of energy. Just like my bike riding. In 2 weeks I started feeling happier again. It's always hard in the beginning, but I just wait for that burst. I did take salt baths because I was sore and they always felt great, then I'd pass out to bed. Now that the weather has been nicer I'm out gardening again. The rainy days, I say "oh no" so I force myself around the house doing things and I start feeling better.

Music is great too and helps. Songs that are sad in nature I skip those, those that are high energy and I'm dancing on the treadmill. As for gardening, I think i fall in meditative states, that I often forget what I just did and where I left things.

Thanks to everyone whose commented.. It is a tricky one to get out of and I can relate to some of the things you've all mentioned. It actually gave me some new ideas to trial that I've not attempted 1) being, connecting to my guides in the way I suppose the manual of connecting to a guide came with, and I intend to do this the next time I take on the state of depressive energies and just analyse from there on if there's any progress.. 2) (@hop-daddy) I actually agree with you on using a shower to release own negativity and I think it's a great place or way to meditate, it's always been something I've turned to for myself but I suppose it doesn't always work with others.. and the main issue is though I know some of the people who are experiencing depression there's little I can do for them in practical advice if they're not willing to take it which is fare enough and then again depression in itself is a battle on it's own on top of say life everyone has to deal with.. Can also relate to @womanwhowalks that it is extremely tough to come away from those states and it's actually what you said about filling people's holes with positive energy, to me like a band aid or something and the ones that I'd selected thus far to come out from made that specific healing work a magnet for more depressive energies to leach on.. @tigetlily & @hop-daddy music does seem to help but it only for minutes or so and then it's back to square one, it like gives myself a break for a moment but in the long run I'm trying to find a way to completely disassociate from those energies, it's like in the past I kept having to deal with jealous and envious energies and never getting a break from them, now it seems it's depressions turn and problems on the surface for people that seem to be masking the underlying problems that seem to be fuelling it more. Like on a personal note I went on a huge rampage of self-discovery to what events in life made me the way I am, how many masks were on top of one given problem and digging my way out through every single one and that was from a TF journey.. although that phase healed all the broken holes or cracks within my own heart mind and soul for that past life, I can't do the same for others.. It's mostly women I'm connected to that are in these states and I'm just stuck for ideas, usually as a way of comfort if I don't get the chance to get it out of them in person I'll post something indirect but thought provoking to initiate reflection on positive notes, but that usually backfires and I come across obnoxious, self absorbed and what not, doesn't really bother me much as I know what I'm doing so I can take on those shots from people.. And @tigerlily exercise is a great way to release depressive energies that have that hold on you, I've been in several on/off depressed states in the past until I reached one that became constant and sinking deeper.. but whatever little excercise I used to do had a major benefit in my though patterns, moods and emotions and see that as a positive note in the sense being in an in/out state reflects an internal battle, just have to keep on ploughing through and knowing we have support is always a major booster wherever or whatever kind of support that may be for anyone.. I'd love to add more to this later.. Thank you all x

Exercise only helps me when I am outdoors, impossible for the next 4 months where I live. Gardening is great, I agree with TL, but I had  to stop due to insect sting allergies. 

Showers are expensive. H20 costs are outrageous here and showers must be kept as short as possible, not hot, and not every day on a fixed income. Tubs for salt baths rare in this area. Nobody takes baths in this climate. 

Music helps, but only the calm meditative kind for me. I use it before bed.

I pull out cords daily if I find them, but wonder how they get in through my shield, which seems very solid now. I do fill the holes with white light and it seems to close them.

Someone here at EC told me my depression is mostly my own. I can see why, due to my illness situation, but some of it must not be mine, or the below would not work......

For me, the biggest help is a late hour, when lots of people have gone to bed. I feel a huge weight lifted off of me than. People who are asleep do not seem to send out energy as much to me. Anyone else find that?

@cheshire-cat:

I feel very weighted down, foggy brained, and emotionally exhausted during weekdays from 6-8pm. I get home from work close to 7PM each night and often feel so weighted down that I almost fall asleep on the drive him. It almost feels like someone cast a spell on me. I read somewhere that this time frame is family conflict time through every community as families come home from work and activities and argue among each other during dinner (plus stress of getting kids to do homework bath, and go to bed). So there is a lot of anxiety in the air. And I think that makes sense for me as I pick all of that up and just feel really drained. And then magically around about 10PM I get energized like I just slammed down a couple espressos. I also read that because most people are winding down or asleep by 10-10:30, that all of that emotional energy in the ether goes away. And I really feel that as I feel very free, well, and excited for my personal free time between 10:30-12:30. Studies have suggested that this why empaths are largely night owls.

In thinking deeper into this I think when we fall asleep we go to a different place. Many spiritual and psychic people claim that when we sleep we astral travel to different worlds and dimensions. If so, this would be consistent as to why you and I feel an energy pick up after a lot of the world is off to sleep with their minds in another place.

@hop-daddy,

Thanks for the input! It's nice to know I am not the only one, and I definitely agree the energy feels a LOT better after 10 PM. This confirmation does make me sad that we can't move to the country like we had planned in retirement. I'll bet I'd feel a lot better back in the boonies. When I lived out in the woods before, I had never heard of an "empath", but that is probably why I felt so much calmer while living there. My non-empath husband doesn't think it would make a difference, but I do. 

I don't feel worse from 6-8 pm like you do though. I feel horrible, teary eyed and/or angry,  from about 5 am to at least 10 am. Maybe all the tired people getting up to go to work are rubbing off on me. 

That reminds me, I saw a video on YouTube once by a couple who belong to an empath group that lives at night. I think they are in either LA or NYC, where that is possible. The group has each other for a social life, and they sleep all day and get up when the sun goes down to enjoy the city at night when far less people are out and about.

Hey Cat, maybe one day we'll all get together and make our own community. Just a bunch of empaths all working together to make a life for ourselves. It's possible that this is what I'm subconsciously looking for when I'm hiking through the woods, because if it did exist, that's where it would be. If I find it I'll let you know. Boy, do you need a break from city life. You all do. I feel for you guys.

Some really interesting points raised @hop-daddy & @cheshirw-cat.. it's actually made me wonder what if how experienced we are in our life circumstances, makes or more susceptible to the energies we pick up and hence wear us down?

In the sense I'm a very quiet person in reality and like it that way, not very out going unless I feel I really need to, but the bunch of experiences I have had either empathy related or in personal life are all connected one way or another.. sometimes if open myself to exploring the social side more, it open up new dynamics in a spiritual sense too..

Like if I look at Ur situation hop-daddy, although you can experience those peak overwhelm hours is it partially because you can relate to it on a personal level?

When we go to sleep the soul does travel to numerous places, it's in another dimension where time is only for the 3d plane. But for me it's the opposite to what Cheshire Cat said, whether I'm asleep or awake people's energies flow through me and sometimes in a sleep state I'm conciously aware of it, and sometimes I'll dream their dreams too or what's going on within the body/mind states without them having any recollection of it and this is my partner I'm speaking of lol

@spiritualskies,

    How can you tell when you are dreaming someone else's dream? That is interesting! I wonder if I've done that. I have sometimes seen someone I know in a dream and when they see me they get a shocked look on their face....I wonder if I am doing that too. It might explain why I wake up in a state of fear so often.

@Zacharias,

     From your lips to God's ear!!! I am ready. Back in my hippie college days, I was in a commune and thought I would always live in one. We had the right idea, but most people were not yet in the right place spiritually and slacked off, putting all the work on just a few and ruining the whole movement. Sadly, I do not think enough people have changed yet, but we empaths are naturally responsible and considerate of how what we do affects others, so I believe we could make it work. I sure hope so. Let me know if you ever find such a place.....

@spiritualskies:

To answer your question: As far as I can tell, anxiety energy that I pick up during the 6-8PM time period has nothing to do with myself or my family interactions. In fact, quite often I'm the first one home at 6PM and that energy is there well before my family gets home. I was reading an empath self-help book a couple years ago that spent a whole chapter covering the drama energy around dinner time that empaths pick up on from society. And when I was reading that it was an ah-ha moment for me. Because I always feel a anxious, fatigued and a little beat up during that time period. That book also noted how many empaths become energized at night when most of society is asleep. And that is also me. In fact, I have a tough time settling down most nights to go to bed at a decent hour since I feel a caffeine-like energy high from 10:30PM on.

I did want to note that I know that all us empaths have different sensitivities. In my case I've noticed that over the past couple years I have become more in tune with the mood of my community, and even the mood of the country. And sometimes this gives me an ominous warning. I remember feeling sick to my stomach that morning back in 2016 when those Dallas Police officers were ambushed. That entire day I felt sick and nervous and had a feeling that something bad was going to happen. And then that evening that maniac was on a building roof in Dallas with a sniper rifle and he killed 5 police officers and wounded 11 others. If you all remember that was a real ugly time with riots and race relation issues in summer of 2016. I picked up on all of that before events happened.

@hop-daddy wow! That's a lot of energy you take on 😮.. gosh I can't imagine what that must be like.. brave of you to have stuck it out this long.. I hope you find a solution for it one day, can't be easy at all..

@cheshire-cat could possibly be true, dreams is not something I focus on, it just happens and usually I just know when I've dreamt someone's dream.. especially when it's non-empathic people, it's the psychological process that takes place once we drift off, I'll pick up anything the mind is processing for that person on that day etc.. it's happened a few times..

@spiritualskies:

I plan to be here until they force me out! Wink Although the energy drain and fatigue around 6-8PM most days is a little frustrating, I take it all in stride and try to see the positives. And my pick up of the greater consciousness comes and goes. It's not every day and tends to be when something major has happened or is about to happen. But I have in most cases found ways to see a positive in any of the negative experiences that I get as an empath. I've spent a lot of time reading up on this, studying myself, studying others. I feel that I have a pretty good handle on how most of this works, and how I can ground and lift myself back up. I think the #1 thing I've learned is to notice when my vibration is dropping and know that I then have a pretty immediate need to raise it back up. That keeps me out of the dark depressive space that we all fall in to with lower vibrations.

That's actually a good technique you have there, I think I might start doing the same, raising my own when I think it's lowered, why that never occurred to me before 🙄..

@spiritualskies- It isn't human nature to want to raise that level. We like to wallow in our depression. I've done plenty of it. It takes more effort to raise your vibe when depressed than when you are not. Depression has a compounding effect when your vibration bounces off of others. Well, good vibrations also have a compounding effect. I raise my own vibe by smiling big and complementing strangers. I watch their face light up and it feels good. Then I get to share that with more people. If we are to focused on ourselves and how we feel(which we again we have a natural tendency to do) we get bogged down. We need to switch our focus on others in order to help them a little and in turn help ourselves.

@zacharias:

I totally agree. For some reason it is very human to allow oneself to become exposed to negative things. It reminds me of the old newspaper adage "If it bleeds, it leads". How many of us can't wait to read about about a messy celebrity divorce, a cheating scandal, or even an untimely death? We pretty much all get sucked into negative stories, events etc... But understanding that is part of the process with being able to raise your vibration. We are all only as good as our weakest link. Examine that, and limit negative exposure on the path to raising your vibration.

Well your right, and all this negativity has a purpose. It's necessary for spiritual growth. I find that this process for my own journey has been to find out what I should resist and what I should accept. It ends up being opposite my nature. Ironic.

@zacharias I can understand what you mean by wallowing in one's own depression and have had many personal experiences with if but I'd have to disagree how or why I'm not sure but whenever I felt myself sinking somehow I was able to bring myself out by recognising early on, probably not even realising that I was kind of using a 'preventtion is better than cure approach'.

On the other hand taking on depressive energies is a mission on it's own because everyone is affected differently. And being HSP the subtlest amount is sufficient to make me feel like I'm being drowned and suffocated in it.

This past week by far has been the strangest on my empath journey I was under numerous depressive energies amongst other types, my telepathic connections and empathy were blocked almost. It's difficult for myself in the sense I don't really know how to raise the vibrations of the people these energies belong to or whether I should attempt at all fearing more harm than good..

Sleep wise I was consciously aware I've been having (sending/receiving) caliraudient messages, perhaps of all the people's whose energies I was under, upon awaking I was able to pick out small fragments of the conversations one of which was linked to a soul mate and and another that was perhaps prophetic?..

I kind of felt like I was asleep but not actually asleep, waking up tired and feeling as though I've not slept at all, somehow in a strange sense my own self was completely numbed out and I was being taken over by blackness that denoted again not in the negative sense but prophetic energies and I'm assuming it had a link with a chord I tried to cut with someone, not in its entirety but one aspect of it..

The moment I returned to the chord I was trying to cut I felt a huge burden lifted off of me, that I could literally finally 'breathe'..

I have no idea what to make of it.

And something really strange I noticed, I was watching a concert I think on Saturday and I saw the person facing towards me was not in they're own energies, how I was able to tell that I have no idea because I honestly was pretty much numbed out and all j was picking was really faint subtle energies, whether that was a mirror reflection of myself in a person (whether that's possible I have no idea).. they just didn't seem themselves, body language was different, eye contact was judgemental, composure didn't seem right, seemed withdrawn, careless..

Heartless even..

Depressive energies overall of others for empathic people are very dense and absorb slot from others..
I kinda felt like Morticia from the Adams family over the weekend haha but even with the colour black I caught so many projections like the colour became a magnet for various negative energies I couldn't possibly count them all.. the next day I wore the same outfit again and I can sense so much negativity from it and normally I'll sense those energies from the atmosphere..

I know all of this isn't relevant in this thread but I'm working on a blog so don't want to forget all this and want to add all of it there in a more helpful way hopefully so I add bits now and again..

'prevention is better than cure approach' . Please, let me warn you. This did not work for me. I stayed away anyone that gave off any negative vibe. I holed myself up in a cave by a river thinking I could just wait it out and die alone. I ignored the spirits telling me to take up the challenge of restoring my soul.

"A bleeding soul, becomes a bitter mind. He said it happens every time" It's from an old song. My soul had been bleeding since early childhood. I could tell you horror stories. I did not want to be here anymore. "This is not my home,. This is not my life. This is not me. I hate this!" A quote from another old song I used as an anthem to justify my anger at the world, and of God for putting me here.  Through life, I was able to get by with these gifts I had that no else seemed to have. An awareness of impending danger kept me alive(most of the time) in spite of how suicidal I was. The knowing of another's intentions guarded me against being taken advantage of. But instead of using these gifts for their intended purpose I used them to protect myself from pain. I avoided it.

There were goods things that happened in those times too. I had a child. My greatest joy! She redirected my focus from myself to protecting her. I quit work to stay home and raise her. I had to, I'm the empath, not my wife. I was at that point willing to face what ever I had to suffer through for her benefit. I didn't want her to live with the suffering I had to endure. The emotional scars of going through the world with this "gift" are deep cuts. I wanted to spare her, but that can't happen. I wouldn't be sparing her anything. I would only be forestalling the inevitable, and that could make the pain worse. 

Suffering is good! I know, this is a backward concept. This is what drives us to move forward in this journey. We resist because we fear pain. The fear is the enemy, not the pain. in fact, the pain isn't real. It sure feels real, but I know that it isn't. We can turn it off. 

I say all this hoping you can come to an understanding I wish I had to long ago. I wish you well, and leave you with this: "What we resist, persist" Carl Jung.

@guitarherogod47 I did some stuff yesterday to see if I could clear the energies you were trying to come out of, did anything clear?

@zacharias I can sympathise with some of what you said, but this has always been my argument and one which I hold steadfast to, that everyone's journeys are unique to them, not everyone we come across will always be able to help, support, guide etc but believing that help from higher power is always around the corner is what I suppose always held on to no matter how rough things have been in life, and iv'e never been failed in that, even when I think the worst is happening I come out to realise/understand that those mishaps were blessings in disguise, not solely for myself but those all Myself and how others are connected to. 

perhaps some of those scars still remain with you that need healing? if its one thing ive learnt on this continuous journey is that even as empaths, we can be empathetic towards one another, sympathise and compassionate but what we haven't been able to do, least I haven't come across anyone, is to empathise with someone else's empathy, whether we've been born with it or developed it either way the burdens and joys of it we can only to a certain extent conceptualise and process. and it doesn't stop that, because that's not all we deal with, life as a whole has burdens and joys too and not everyone sees or understands what we have to endure but we carry on with hope, that one day this shall too be over, I couldn't possible imagine some of the stuff people have to live through nor have the strength to fight or courage to go on but that in itself is something for us to decide, what can we do to help, to change, whether it be make someone's life that little bit better, or the world a better place etc for that we need growth within ourselves or we become just as useless to ourselves as much as to anyone else..

wish you well too and I hope I haven't said anything negative or offensive, as its not my intent to x

@spiritualskies- That's good to hear. Nothing you've said is in any way negative. I did kind of come up with a very simplistic solution that for us is just to simple. We have to be aware and deal with the effect of this negative soup that we are in as well as these entities that seem to target us. So depression is not just from within but it's also put upon us seemingly without our consent. I try to explain things as I see it from my personal experience because we are all on a unique path. We are, however, going in the same direction. I look to others for incite in getting over these obstacles in my path. I've had many of them because of those deep wounds. The ones I still have yet to heal. I'm looking for those wounds in my life that causes me to resist what is truly good for me. 

You know, I meet empaths all the time. Most are broken. Some are on drugs and living in utter confusion. Some are hermits that surround themselves with their stuff to feel protected. Some are in mental institutions. The ones I meet that are aware and actively practicing are easy to spot. They know me right away as well, and we eminently trust each other. We talk about our families and grounding because we are very concerned about each other. I'm no longer concerned about you, @spiritualskies, but we all need to be concerned about them, the broken.

I totally agree with what you said and I guess it's why I try my best in whatever ways I can and it's not easy at all, focussing on helping others that are broken emoath or not is not an easy journey.. I'm sure we all will have started off rocky somewhere until, fortunately for some of us were pulled back to our senses while others are still wondering souls trying find themselves on the midst of it all..

And it's like after my last post I give hope to others where mine kept being snatched and put down by other people and I get called dereogetary names for knowing certain stuff or using the methods that I do to locate and understand energies as well as the human mind, body and soul, and I wanna give up sometimes.

I honestly wanted to pursue something that one day perhaps would have helped many, I've kind of lost track of that for fear of other aspects getting in the way and I don't think I could cope with everything occupying me right now..

So I'm forever grateful that I know I've found a group of people who can somewhat relate and understand and push me.forward even if it's by lending an ear or words of encouragement, and I hope sincerely just as I found people to support me on my way that others find that someone too and if not find solace in a higher power above ones self whatever or whoever that might be, no one should be left to suffer in any way and feel as they have no one, it's the worst feeling in the world..
