Dear.. - February 18th 2014, 06:25 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I'm not sure if other threads like this have been done, but I've wanted to post this for a while. Everyday, take some of your struggles, and write to it; talk to it and say what you want to say to it.

I'll go first.

Dear dissociation,

Please let me remember my day sometime. I don't like feeling non-existent in the world.

I think this thread is a really good idea

Dear Bipolar Disorder,
I know that you're not just going to go away, and for the most part I have accepted that. But I'd really like it if you could keep the impulsiveness you make me feel to a minimum. I'm tired of being scared to make decisions, never knowing if I'm thinking straight or deciding out of impulse. It's really confusing and I just want to be able to trust myself again.

Dear insecurity,
Please just leave me alone. Stop telling me what a bad person I am, or how unattractive I am. Some days I believe you and some days I don't. But I want you out of my life for good. You've caused so many problems for me and I promise you I'm going to beat you and be a confident person again. There's no way you're going to win. I can't wait till the day that you are no longer a part of my life.

1st

Dear Shyness,

Please stop making me nervous of talking to foreign people or making me nervous when I have to go somewhere and I didn't plan the day.
If I don't plan the day, you would get everything over and over.

2nd

Dear Anxiety of school days,

If I don't know what to do for the next school day or if I am afraid to go because of the teachers, then you come. And I don't want you to be with me in bed in the evening before the next day of school!

Dear Mr. Tendency to Schedule Way More Stuff Than I Could Ever Get Done,
I do have a life,y you know. Just for once, I would like your little voice from the back of my head to keep quiet when someone mentions an extra class option, or an out-of-school activity, or a competition, or a new sport. Let me have a little time to kick back, without thinking that participating in everything will greatly benefit my life. I think getting a little rest would be greatly beneficial to life...
Yours truly,
Stelles

Dear anxiety (at least that's what my therapist/I think it is, but I haven't gotten a diagnosis),

Stop making my life a living nightmare. Please just stop. I didn't think it was that bad until one person told me it's crippling me, and another mentioned something that basically got me thinking, "What if it goes down that road where you can't work because of the anxiety?"

Stop making me too afraid to do anything. I do nothing, I procrastinate because even doing something simple spirals out into all of these things that could happen to me, all these things that totally are going to go wrong, all of these things that I just can't fix.

You make me feel like nothing will get better and I'm tired of it. I'm tired of wanting to cut, I'm tired of wanting to die. I'm tired of hating myself over every little thing that I do. I'm tired of feeling worthless, like nothing, like dirt.

Why can't you just go away?

-Dez

Dear Depression,

Either make life easier or leave. No compromises. I'm as strong as I'm gonna get and you are not helping one bit. I'm tired of living like this.

Dear Yes

As you should know, I would like to have at least an hour per week just for myself and what I want to do so please, if someone asks me if I want to join their sports team, help them with something or do some extra work, please ask me before you agree. It would make life so much easier if I would not dissappoint everyone beacuse I'm backing out last minute or can't make it.


Dear Mood swings

It's ok. I'm not going to tell you to go away, but please keep it down yes? If you want me to go from happy to sad thats ok, but please do it more slowly and not lift me in the highest highs just to crush me over night. It's exhausting and confusing.


It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!

Dear anxiety,
Stop making everything so hard for me. It's not fair no one else has to fight against their own mind every minute of every day. There's no reason to panic, so stop panicking. I need to get off medication. I need to function normally. I don't understand why my brain resorts to thinking this way but it's annoying and frustrating. I want to be able to do things a normal college student can do. I don't want to have to avoid things because of you. I hate making up excuses for you. It's just not fair. So take a hike. And don't come back. Because no one loves you. Especially not me.
Sincerely,
I'm done with you


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

Dear PTSD,

I am aware that I've had traumas, I know that. Except, I hate actually admitting it. I wish you wouldn't have to manifest yourself in this way. Please stop being so debilitating; you're holding me back.

Dear negative thoughts and depression,

Why do you do this to me? Why do you not ever let something good last for long? Why do you have to take every little thing up and rip it into pieces? Please, just stop and let me be happy for once.

Dear anxiety,

Don't make school tomorrow any more miserable than it has to be. Please. It's going to be awful enough.

Stop making me dread the moment when the sun goes down and the world becomes dark.
