Welcome to the Heart Support wall! How did you hear of us?
I’m sorry to hear about your friend. Seems like there is quite a few people on the forums right now who have been struggling with friendships. I’ve read a few now that seem to have some similar struggles.
Do you want to talk a little bit about what happened to the friendship and why you think they cut you off? You don’t have to if you don’t want to. I know sometimes being able to vent a little bit helps. Sometimes it’s just nice to be heard.
You know, a lot of my friends who are off to college see a counselor while they get through their studies and have said that it really has made a huge difference for them and their mental health. Do you think this is something that could of help to you? Maybe it could help you worth through your anxiety, friendships and depression.
Friend, I know you are hurting right now, but you are not alone in all of these feelings. Here, I’m going to leave the link to the Heart Support discord. Where you can join if you want, to connect with other people around the community. If you aren’t already. https://discord.gg/z6wyy7
Something that I do when I’m feeling stressed is blog or journal. I have a private blog that I write on over on Tumblr. But I also recently started journaling. I bought a binder and some paper just for this. Got some nice pens, gel pens, pencils and highlighters. Writing can be very therapeutic. Self reflect a little bit. I know with being in University, writing may feel like you already do a lot of that. But taking some time out for you to just write out how you are feeling can be really healthy. Unless you prefer to blog where it can be safe from roommates.
Something else I have turned to in the past was making collages. Cutting things out that I felt connected to. Photos, words…anything really. Visual journaling is also therapeutic.
Meditation is always a great way to help clear your head and deal with depression or anxiety. Youtube has a lot of videos and audio. There is also https://www.headspace.com/
Relaxing and calm music is good for clearing the mind. Good for studying. Good for helping you sleep. Lots of that can also be found on youtube. There is also this site that I really enjoy: https://rainymood.com/ Which I believe can also be put on your found. There’s an app.
Friend, I’m really sorry that you’re struggling right now. But if you want to talk a little bit about the situation with your friend, willing to listen. Or some of what is causing your depression and anxiety.
Your feelings matter. What you’re going through matters. <3
