Hi milkshake. Do you practice meditation? I use the headspace app and sometimes learning how to observe how you feel and think but not get wrapped up in those feelings can be helpful.
Post certain situations and let’s talk about them, other people have/are going through the same things and it helps to talk about it.
I’ll add one, I’m going on 60, great wife two great sons, I have everything to look forward to, but sonething not letting me feel happy like usual? Im scared of the future, been with my wife since 16, can’t imagine life without her, or my kids, or them without me..,. Fills me with anxiety and leads to ocd I think or the other way around? It’s been on and off twice in the last 6 months, idk why but it hit me
Yes I have tried meditation but after doing it, I’m back to square one. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. It works for a bit and then it stops
As I understand it, it’s not so much about achieving anything, as it is about cultivating space in your mind, and learning how to sit back and observe your thoughts in every moment of every day. I find it very difficult, but I’m slowly getting better at the practice
