is the time you spend thinking of who you could have been,
and no amount of substance abuse will quell that sense of loss.

No point dwelling on the past. Our lives may not be perfect, but we always have things others wish they did.
Don't forget to count your blessings. We are often better off than what it seems.

And do your best to move forward and improve.

It's easier said than done for some, we're all different and struggle from different issues. Those with traumatic pasts could struggle from countless mental issues that make it feel impossible. Sometimes the accepted advice, therapy, and treatment only numb or potentially worsen the problem.

It's great to strive to let the past go, it's just the road to that point can be longer and more painful for some, and that's perfectly okay, sometimes it's part of the process.

This is all true, as well. But always good to keep in mind we have options.
Let's just do our best with what we have~

Acceptances are the hardest part of healing. Like cleaning the infected flesh from a wound, it's something that needs to be done, but you still have the nerves to remember the pain of everything. And the rot can always come back. The next step is forgiveness, and in a culture of perfection, allowing ourselves to first accept, and second forgive ourselves for the mistakes we've made can feel damn near impossible, especially when the cycle of self talk starts.

Also are those antidepressants or supposed to be opioids/mood altering drugs? Because if it's the former then fuck I feel this even harder.

Yeah, exactly that. I get into a cycle of dissociating everything when my regular outside-my-brain life gets hard, and then I have to accept what happened to me all over again, once the memories come back. It's a cycle that makes it pretty much impossible to move on.

 And the yellow ones are painkillers, the white ones are mood altering drugs. :)

Yours is possibly the most expressive form of art i've seen on this site, you can tell a very powerful story with one image and a short description and that's beautiful in its way.

There's many people who'll relate to this, looking back with "what ifs" is a very common thing, heck I do it a lot. There's no one answer and no one key, but it's important to push forward as best you can and BE the best you can. Not to impress anyone else, not for some kind of approval, but to do it for you, because you matter. Even if you sometimes forget it. <3

Awesome work as always Perish x

That means a lot, thank you. :'O

I had a feeling this pic would resonate with a lot of people, no matter what the reasons for that particular feeling is.

I spent a good bit of my early 20's with severe depression which ate away at the person I was. Despite growing and learning to accept who I am, I admit sometimes I get that deep dark pit in my stomach and wonder what could have been. It's not very useful to go there but sometimes it's hard to avoid.

Thanks for sharing the art, good to see a post, hope your health is getting better.

I know exactly how this feels. I am intimately familiar with these thoughts and doubts and dependencies. I feel for him, for you, anyone who is or has ever dealt with this. It fucking sucks

honestly, i wouldn't wish this sort of thing on anyone, but I hope my art can help others like us. :)

Yeah, I think just letting people who have gone through this know that they aren't alone helps a lot. It helps relieve the sense of isolation. I think you do good work with this stuff

Some advice brought up by someone: Treat yourself like you would if you were a different person given the responsibility of caring for your wellbeing. I'm sure, if granted the power to do it, you would do it for someone else who needs it. Perhaps for a sick pet. But not for yourself? Why? You don't think you deserve it? You are the kind of person who would help and care for someone else in need afterall so you deserve it every bit as much as they do.

thank you, this is the advice I really needed to hear a few years ago, and still need to some extent... but, I have really learned that since I survived everything, I need to basically become my own caretaker, and treat myself with compassion. I mostly hate the situation I'm in, and the self hatred has severely waned, but a reminder is always nice.
