One step forward, Two steps back

by They Call Me Amy

Hi everyone, serious question. Do you guys feel like when you are finally getting back on track, something happens so you go back to the place you started?

This keep happening to me, so I would like to know if you guys go through this and what do you do to keep moving forward, because I am seriously almost giving up

Its up and down and up and down again. Probably everyone even normal people experience it in some form. It can be really irritating when you just start to think that you are getting ur shit together and then something happens or your mood gets bad without a reason. I know perfectly what ur talking about. ButThereing positive to it tho. There would be no ups if it werent for the downs. You would experience nothing at all. And despite this up and down nature of reality progress is possible. Even if it is not so visible you can make it so every low is just a bit higher than the previous one and so the high is.

I was formulating a response when I read what Pathetic Male wrote, and couldn’t agree more. It’s all cyclical, and all you can do when you find yourself back at square one is move ahead, yet again. It’s just the cycle of our lives, of everyone’s life. To answer your question, yes, I find myself moving backwards often. It sucks.

Being knocked down falls into 2 categories. It can be a random tragedy (your car gets stolen), or it can be the result of something you did (you and crash your car).

When I’m beginning to get my life together and something bad randomly happens, I try to remind myself that at least it happened during an upswing. Because if it happened in the middle of suicidal depression, I might not survive.

If it’s the second type of tragedy, the result of something I did wrong or carelessly, that’s a lot harder to handle. I usually sink back to suicidal depression after stuff like that because it’s too real of a reminder that I’m a fukup.

I don’t know, Amy. Sometimes things happen and you can never get back on track. It’s like running a train off the tracks. But we could ask those types of rhetorical questions all day, if you think it will help you.. or anyone.

Of course. But everybody is always moving forward, inescapably. It’s always a new kind of wreck with its own nuances and subtleties. On one hand, that’s terribly disconcerting, but on the other, you have to poke around and explore to find new possibilities to build on. And there’s always something new to find when you’ve finally reached the point where you start looking.

I just feel like the world has been telling me for a long time I’m not good enough. Today I walked home behind a young couple and he was a shady type and trailed by a long tail of weed smoke. Smokers always walk annoyingly fast, so you can’t overtake them. So basically I had to walk home behind them, wondering why that obnoxious asshat has a girl and I don’t and probably never will. It’s so fucking obvious that I’m an evolutionary dead end. FML. Fuck the world. Fuck society.
