well when i was unmedicated, i was battling with my voices all the time, but sometimes a voice would express love towards me and it messed me up, i was uncapable of accepting love back then, preferring my battles. now i’ve mellowed out a lot on meds and think i could accept love from others, but i wonder if i prefer like instead of love.
I’m really working hard on this one myself, @Lifer. I’ve had it rough for some times in my life when it seemed as if no one valued or appreciated me. I got so used to people hating me (or, so I thought), that at times, I wanted to kill myself. If I had continued down the path I was on, I reckon I could’ve become a hardened criminal, or at least I could’ve gotten into weed and/or hard drugs.
I love to be loved and adored.
There’s this guy who I once came across this year. He is good at expressing himself but I just freeze so yeh had to call it quits
It is frustrating when I feel love being given but can’t reciprocate. Very upsetting.
I think Rita ora does a good song on this it’s called why can’t I let you love me.
I receive love from my husband and I love him back. You may be having trouble accepting love, but we all need love. It’s a basic human necessity. So maybe get a therapist to work with on this. It’s really important
Love isn’t sexual, your friends, your family, etc can give you love.
Drugs is horrible. I’m happy to see you were saved from the turmoil.
I became a heavy weed and cocaine user. I’d use other stuff, but nothing like those two.
In between lectures I would sniff just to be able to function.
In between nights I’d smoke just to eat and sleep.
It cost me a lot of time, and of course financially wrecked me. More importantly - it destroys your mental health when you’re psychosis prone.
The climb back has been sad and difficult, but I have to say: it is good to be in a nicer and more pleasant world. Because the street world is not nice.
I can’t accept love. I love to love others though.
I get to accept love and then love is to strong.
Some types of love I can accept. Other types I can’t.
I love to be loved and adored too:slightly_smiling_face:
Yes I can accept love and being loved I welcome.
I was hated and bullied as a child and teen but as a old adult who is sober things are so much better.
Life is better for me now.
I hated being younger.
