Even though BirdSong wrote things in a way that triggered me, she/he has a point. I often do still bring up ODing or suicide when I feel badly. I think it may be a way of communicating my intense emotions. I want to not feel bad emotions so intensely, but on the other hand, it is part of who I am.
How do I balance accepting myself and change?
I think BirdSong triggered me because I thought she was saying I was not good enough. I've already made a lot of progress, but it just seems like it is never enough and I feel frustrated.
How would you feel if you were trying your best and people still tell you it is not good enough?
Everyone has faults, why can't the world accept me for who I am?
