  1. Someone said Reddit. I agree. But don’t take every answer or response verbatim. It’s a random perspective at the end of the day, and you need to place your own judgment on if the comment or post has validity👌

  2. pick up my phone and headphones, put on my backpack, go outside and start biking. i’ll do this no matter what time it is, with no destination and no idea how long. bike until im too tired to worry anymore.

  3. My kitchen. When I need time to think, process, or even just breathe and relax, I can always walk into my kitchen and start something. Bread, bagels, a sauce, soup, stock. Prep some rice for fried rice tomorrow. Break down that chicken.

  4. For me I looked internally. Nobody truly knows what youre going through and talking with the wrong people can only make certain things worse.

    Told myself who is in bed at night laying up with me? Just me right? So I looked within. Once you stop looking for outside help, I believe you start to do more selfish acts to better yourself and life.

    For those that say drugs and alcohol, get help. Those are temporary and only make things worse in the long run.

  5. Depending your circumstances and where you live there’s very easily a dozen aid organizations that can help or point you in the right direction.

    If you don’t know where to turn, try the Red Cross. They’ll at least help out a little and find someone better suited to help if they can do it themselves. Once my family was moving cross country and the family car’s tire blew out. We barely had enough money for the trip and they put my parents in touch with a group that was able to pay to get us a new set of tires.

  6. My therapist, genuinely. Every time I feel like my life is falling apart and I can’t reach out to family or friends for x or y reason, I schedule an appointment and try not to scream HELP ME as I calmly describe what’s going on, I cannot think of a time that it didn’t help at least a little bit. Therapists have tons of tools and experience and are there solely to help you— I find at least their fresh perspective helps me slowly put my own ducks back in a row somehow. When I feel like I’m on the edge of an inescapable relapse or that surely there’s no good way out of a situation, I schedule an appointment just on principle even if I don’t feel like it will help at the time.

  7. If the gig is up and you truly have nowhere to turn, then your only option is to turn within and submit yourself to a higher power for wisdom, strength and clarity.
