The last couple of days have not been great. The one good thing about the daily “What’s on TV” posts is that it gives me one thing to post that takes little thought. It was hard to get motivated to write anything else today, but I thought it would be better for me if I did. So, here is the recipe for the place I am right now.
Take one person with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.
Add in a dash of social isolation and loneliness.
Mix in a severe lack of decent sleep.
Add a big heaping serving of gaslighting and deception.
Enhance the low self-esteem with a dash of minimizing accomplishments.
Add in a big heaping serving of making them feel worthless.
Add in a dash of a toxic relationship with “productivity” and looking busy.
Add a dash of self-destructive thoughts.
Let it simmer for eternity.
