My mental health obsessions

Right now my mind is consumed by worries about my mental health. I’m plagued with thoughts that everything is wrong with me - from the way I think and express myself to the decisions I make.

It’s exhausting. Every time I start to relax and have a good moment, these worries creep up and disrupt my well-being. No matter how hard I try to push them away, they come back when least expected.

I’m perfectly aware of how irrational my obsessions can be, but it’s not easy to ignore those inner voices that are screaming inside my mind telling me everything will never turn out ok and that nothing good will ever come out of this cycle of obsession and worry. It’s an endless loop that just won’t let up.

The worst part is realizing that this isn’t going away anytime soon. It’s an exhausting process every single day just trying to make sure I don’t break down because of something minor or insignificant that got out of hand in my head unnecessarily. How much more energy am I supposed to burn before I finally accept it as part of me and manage better?

I guess all we can do is keep trying in hopes our efforts ultimately pay off.
