How do you anons keep pushing forward when having very rough times in life? I recently have had a difficult time when some unexpected events just happened very suddenly recently, and I'm having trouble maintaining a decent, positive attitude and wanting to keep going forward. I feel like checking out mentality, and maybe also physically. The only thing that seemed to keep me together was maintaining the mindset where I try to figure out what priorities and tasks are more important to fix at the moment, and then set out to complete it. Other than that, I feel my strength and will draining every hour.
On top of that, my family doesn't seem to care react too much to my current situation. They did help me as much as they can, but I get the feeling that they view me as the black sheep of the family, the one who is a disappointment and a failure, and helping me seems like a burden to them. I know many anons stress to maintain strong friend and family ties during current modern times, but my family doesn't feel like a traditional happy family that ever else seems to have, and I can't seem to connect with anyone else except in the chans. When I do some self-reflection, I seem to have low self-esteem and view and value myself negatively. I do consider myself as a disappointment, and I feel very much alone. Finding a support group in meatspace is a difficulty. The only solution I see is to self-improve mentally and focus on my career choices and financial situation, before making physical attempts like working out and strict diets. But I do feel my will draining from me to even want to continue forward.
I know there are some anons who have had situations even worse than mine, but I still feel like I can't continue. If any anon has suffered very stressful and difficult times, how did you pull yourself back together and keep going? Or if it was someone else, how did they pull themselves back together and keep pushing forward? Right now, my priorities have shifted to making sure I have a solid stable life financially and career wise, before doing any other /pol community building and activities in meatspace.
