...See moreI have thought for a long time that I suffered from depression but I am starting to think that I'm suffering from being surrounded by people who treat me terribly and who bait me to get a known reaction so they can put me down for having a reaction they know they can trigger out of me

...See moreHey, I would need a little help. I want to lose some weight, I binge eat and I'm overweight and I want to stop it but each time I try, I just stop eating and don't do any exercise or do a lot of exercise and count all of my calories but this time I really want to do things differently so I would like to know if you know any sport who would be funny, that would help me with my health and self-esteem and that I could practice without haviing to pay a lot because I have no money...
Thanks for your time <3
...See moreOk, my step 11 (now 14) is to get a long term listener. It has a link to a forum post. But there is no way to move past the step. If I click the button above I can do something else, but my next step is always to get a long term Listener. However here's the thing, I have a long term listener, I've posted on the forum twice and even talked with other non-long term listeners. I've up voted there post. I've done all I can to move on, but my growth step remains the same. What does this thing need me to do, I don't get it?
...See moreHello friends! I just wanted to share a project I've been working on for a while. I recently began creating a growth path for positive focus, which touches on the topics of self-esteem, self-love, gratitude, and a positive mindset.
I also wanted to make it unique so it includes journal prompts, videos, affirmations, and talks about my two favorite topics; philosophy and psychology. I felt like by including these topics, it gives a deeper look into the subject of happiness/positivity!
I've wanted to create growth path since the option became available, but I was motivated to finally start due to the H Prize! I am a contestant (although I'm just doing this for fun haha) so I would love it if you could interact with my path by upvoting! Also, feel free to comment on it or message me with suggestions. I always look forward to any type of feedback!
The path is called "Sophia's Daily Steps For Positive Focus" and you can find it HERE [https://www.7cups.com/path/playlist/sophia-s-daily-steps-for-positive-focus/].

...See morei have been struggling a lot with anger lately, and I actually came across this really good tip and trick to toning down anger when it’s too overwhelming or not needed, and though I didn’t find it through 7cups, I thought I’d share in case anyones going through the same: when you’re angry or upset with someone, imagine when they were little. Imagine your partner when they were 7 and they were crying because their father yelled at them about math homework, imagine when your mother was sitting on the curb waiting for her bus in 3rd grade, growing impatient and cold. Imagine all the things that brought them to this point, and find a way to rationalize that they are human too. We are all human, it’s only natural to get upset with on another on occasion, but try to think back to what’s hurt them as well.
...See moreI did the journaling path, and another path that I have forgotten; I believe it was the introductory path so to speak. I am currently on Rewarding Yourself for Change, and on the step where I am supposed to post. I will try to remember to follow up once I finish this one, as it is helping tremendously.
I created a token system, and color-coded tasks or behaviors and habits that I want to reward myself for, including long-term goals that will have bigger rewards such as meditating every day for a month, for at least 30 minutes. That one seems very difficult to me now, but I know I'll get there!
The tokens are for daily activities like making my bed, brushing my teeth, going to work, and finishing my whole shift, and they have a $0.25 cent value, so I don't overspend and have a way to make saving money easier. I'll sometimes use them in exchange for color-coded goal rewards if I've saved up enough, or use them day-to-day to earn things like Sodas and sugary treats, but some things like breakfast will just automatically have their own rewards, such as dark chocolate in the morning, which could help my mood as well.
I got a little obsessive about it, but it worked! I ended up being very very productive yesterday, catching up on things I'd been putting off like finding a psychiatrist and therapist since I recently moved.
It seems to be helping with anxiety, and a bit with self-esteem too. Sometimes feeling good about my accomplishments is hard, so giving myself permission to reward myself instead of always feeling guilty or overwhelmed for the time I spend doing things I enjoy. Many of the goals are rewards as well, such as being able to enjoy curling up with a good book again and falling asleep thinking of the story.
I hope I will be consistent, but not beat myself up if I have off days, but that's why I think the tokens will work. At first, I thought there was no way a token would be helpful for me, but it honestly makes me feel good about myself to think I've earned even $0.25 toward a new book or a movie rental, or a month's subscription to a streaming service. These are things I end up spending too much money on, not using, and then worrying about the waste, and not saving much money. Now, if I can keep this momentum going, even if it's a day where I only make my bed, I will mark that token and probably keep being inspired to earn the other tokens for daily self-care.
Sorry I post long, meandering streams of consciousness, I'm working on my communication, but I'm glad this place exists and the paths encourage us to share.
