I can't stay sad, to put it simply. Whenever I feel sad or upset, I get the usual cold feeling on my chest and tightness in my throat, but it quickly goes, along with any negative emotions. The desire to be sad is still there, but it's like my body and mind move on, even though I still feel sad deep down.
While this sounds great, I find it extremely frustrating. I can't stay sad or upset for more than say, 15 minutes, then I just resort back to my old happy self - I don't forget about it, or even move on, the feeling of sadness just disappears. I know it sounds strange, but I want to be sad. I wouldn't call it depression, but I seem to enjoy being upset, even if it's just for the short time I am.As to why, I'm not sure. I don't recall any trauma that would result in this natural happiness, and I've never self harmed, nor want to. If anyone could help "diagnose" me, I suppose, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.1 AnswerMental Health8 months ago
We've been together for almost a year now, but from day one I've had the impending feeling that she doesn't actually love me. I know this fear itself is completely irrational, but I genuinely don't know what to do. Do I tell her? What if she gets upset? What if it's true? Thanks in advance.2 AnswersSingles & Dating9 months ago
Ever since I was a kid, I ve always hated going on holiday. Regardless if it s camping, caravanning, or just staying in a hotel; I ve hated it. I m not sure why, I always try to enjoy myself but it seems there are better, more useful things I can do with my time back at home - and quite frankly, I enjoy being at home more. It really bothers me, because my wife loves holidays, and I m scared to tell her because I know it would break her heart, (she lives for going on holiday).
Is this normal? And are there things - if any - that I can do to enjoy them more?2 AnswersPsychology1 year ago
