I wish I could be as healed as you.
You can get there! Work on coping mechanisms, ERP, and mindfulness.
@Nica Just doing meditation? What other tips
@vmurso22 I mean, I can give you a bunch of different coping mechanisms but those don’t work for everyone. That’s why there’s so many coping mechanisms because not all of them work for everyone. So, you have to test out the ones that work for you and toss out the ones that don’t.
@vmurso22 Meditation and mindfulness are different, by the way. But they’re connected.
@Nica They are ?
@vmurso22 When you’re practicing mindfulness, it’s constant and always on. When you practice mindfulness, you focus on one thing at a time. When you start to drift away, you bring yourself back to the present moment. Meditation is a different act and more focused. I’ve told you many times to look into practicing mindfulness, so you should know the difference by now if you wanted to actually do it.
How to be present though when your mind is racing? Literally the only thing that has allowed me to do that is to "delay" dealing with whatever flavor of the week thing is trying to be answered.
