More meat for the grinder
- Apr 17, 2023
Your screen name is funnyI used to be very resilient. Since I was about 65, less so. Some days, not at all.
I think it's true that people on this forum are a lot stronger than the so-called normal people.I would usually say hell no, but then I often wonder how someone else would've coped in my shoes. I always say "anyone else would've killed themselves years ago if they had to be me" but it's hard to get perspective on something like that.
Me too. Abused from age 6. I guess we just gradually shut down. Our brains go into some kind of standby mode to protect themselves.I used to be, trauma and abuse chipped away at my resilience over the years growing up and I became progressively colder and numb to the idea of being alive. At 23 I feel completely empty and hollow inside after spending my developing years just trying to survive.
