Hey.
Today I contacted a person that's very important to me. I don't really want to reveal all the details of the conversation, but I hadn't talked to that person for around 8 months.
I'm feeling so bad right now. I don't know what to do. After the talk I felt as if I was insane. I really wanted to self-harm and I didn't because I didn't have any tools and I'm visiting my family rn and there's barely any privacy here.
At first I was feeling like sh, just as I mentioned, but now I'm only feeling empty. Everything seems senseless after that conversation. I love a lot of things in this world and I wouldn't like to leave it, but I don't know how to go on at this point...

I'm sorry that conversation was a bit overstimulating for you.

Perhaps it was too much information for the brain to comfortably handle.

Do you have a safe place or safe person you can go to when you need some down time to unwind?

If you ever need someone to talk to, I'm here.
Also don't worry, it's perfectly fine.
I have a similar situation to yours, and I feel like shit, too.

Hey there, Sue.

I'm sorry to hear about this conversation. Considering you haven't spoken to that person for about 8 months, I can see how it would bring up strong feelings, especially depending on what topics the conversation covered. I understand and respect the fact that you don't want to go into the details of the conversation, but if you feel like you need to talk about it you can PM me, okay? I don't mind listening and will keep it between you and me.

In a way I am glad you weren't able to self-harm at that time because it allowed you an experience you were able to stay safe in. Is there anything that helps calm you or distract you when you're feeling that way, with self-harm urges in the mix? Coloring can be relaxing if that's something you enjoy.

Many of us have behaved rudely and upset those around us when we are feeling so low, so be kind to yourself, okay? It may seem like a mess now, but it may be very beneficial to talk to your dad. You could apologize for upsetting him and explain you just wanted to be alone, and from there on it'd be great to talk about how you've been feeling lately. Do you think you can talk about that with your dad? You can start small by simply saying you've felt depressed, and if he seems supportive you can go into the deeper issues such as the thoughts you've been having and the self-harm. If talking verbally is too difficult you can write him a note.

Emptiness can be a difficult feeling to have, and it can influence almost every single thought by making each action and even life itself seem pointless. That isn't the truth though. I understand it feels like you don't know what direction to go in at this point and aren't sure how to go on, but life is worth it. You mentioned you love a lot of things in this world; write down those things on a list for when you need positive reminders. And even write down goals and experiences you'd like to have in your life. Things will get better, okay? You can do this, Sue.

You can message me anytime - my inbox is always open to you. Take care and hold on, take it one day at a time.
