Gratitude For here/you all

Hi, all

i just wanted to say I am grateful for the encouragement and support have received so far with hair & other things

Sometimes, i am not able to respond right away due to diagnosed depression , and feeling low now . Am very frustrated with several aspects of that and recent setbacks this past week .
but trying 1 day each time to do small hopeful steps :)

And feel very lucky to be able to learn here. Hugs and positive energy to everyone , today !!

    I've been dealing with depression for the last 2 months, so I feel your pain. (((HUGS)))

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."

    People pop in and out of here all the time, don't feel obliged to post if you're not feeling up to it. Hope things get better for you soon, take care.

    That's very sweet of you.

    On the bright side, with the diagnosis, you now know where you stand and can work on getting a handle of the situation, in small steps, as you said. I understand depression isn't "just a phase", but keep in mind the setbacks and the lows are in themselves temporary and things do get better.

    Do not hesitate to ask for help if and whenever you need, from your doctor, friends, family and of course we are always happy to send positive vibes your way.

    Right back at you :) Thank you for this sweet little uplifting thread. I know how it feels to be going through depression too. Sometimes getting out of bed is so difficult...bits of gratitude and positivity like this are appreciated.

    Hi, buddies

    I am very very sad today. I had to sacrifice my curls, due to several things. am hoping will be able to grow out again eventually.

    Will be gone for awhile since hair currently doesn't qualify.
  • spiderlashes5000spiderlashes5000 Registered Users Posts: 17,898 Curl Virtuoso
    It's more than just hair; stick around!

  • PerriPPerriP Registered Users Posts: 6,613 Curl Neophyte
    Ben!

    Curls are not mandatory!

    perhaps should rephrase that, buddies. my self-confidence was so low, i got semi-bullied into cut that took away progress/ all of length pretty much . :( . i look like a sheared lamb
  • PerriPPerriP Registered Users Posts: 6,613 Curl Neophyte
    That's okay
    You're welcome here looking any whichway!

    I'm sorry you're feeling down and now have a visible reminder of how down you're feeling but know that just as your hair won't stay the same, neither will the bad feelings. Find one thing if you can,that makes a tiny part of your heart smile and hold onto that.

    I'm sorry you're feeling so down, all the more reason to stick around, hopefully we can make you smile a little.
    My hair's driving me insane atm and I'm thinking of abandoning the curls for a while, so you don't have to feel alone.
