Sunday Sound-Off v. 124

Shared it:
  1. My beloved "square breathing" makes this list: 10 ways to boost your energy from World of Psychology.
  2. I struggle with this SO MUCH. 3 times you shouldn't delegate (and 3 you really should) by The Muse.
  3. It's rather comforting to know I do most of these. 4 ways we calm ourselves down without really knowing it via Huff Post's Third Metric.
  4. This one made me stop and think (dammit - lol). Addicted to helping: why we need to stop trying to fix people by Tiny Buddha.
  5. I've really been struggling with my body-focused repetitive behaviour (BFRB aka dermatillomania or skin picking) lately, so this one struck a hell of a nerve because, as much as I've vehemently denied it up to this point, I've come to realize that I'm engaging in a form of self-harm: stop the violence within from Spirituality & Health.
 But first, let me take a celfi.

Appreciated it:
  1. Clean sheets
  2. Help with dinner
  3. Making babies smile (3 for 3!)
  4. Biting into a crunchy apple
  5. Replacing my favourite wore-em-so-much-I-wore-em-out flats

Alone in a Crowded Room

Yep. That's me right now. That's been me for a couple of weeks. Not sure when it started. Not sure how it will end. I'm just... tired. Tired of lonely. Tired of confused. Tired of scared. Tired of... everything. I'm overwhelmed, and I feel like I'm drowning, but I don't know why I feel overwhelmed, so I don't know where to even begin to fix it. 

Emo-word-vomit is the new black.
