I always seem to shut myself down from wanting things I can’t have. But maybe it’s healthier to actually just admit you want certain things (even if you can’t have them).
I want my negative and cognitive symptoms cured.
It seems to be an impossible fight.
I want things I cannot have, and can admit the specifics to people in real life… i think everyone goes through it…
When I was younger, I had a crush on someone and [i think crushes are more difficult when you’re younger] but my peer, an English Teacher said to me:
‘History and literature are chock full of this sort of thing’. It made me feel better…
Getting used to it.
when youre happy i feel like people dont really think about what they dont have.
idk im happy and dont really feel like i need anything
especially with physical things, i feel like the less i have actually is the better and happier i am
Sometimes i think i Wanna try life in another place.
It’s a tough habit to break, but it won’t make you happy. Been through that. Are the things that you could possibly work toward?
That’s what I’m wondering though. Is it healthier to admit you want things you can’t have. Rather than suppressing the desires.
There are lots of things I want that I can’t have but it doesn’t bother me in the slightest. Sometimes I imagine I have what I want, what it would be like, like fantasizing about it, and it puts me in a good mood for a bit.then I move on with my life thankful for what I do have.There are a lot of people way worse off than me.
The only thing that I want that I cannot have is an end to my negative symptoms…with an end to those I could get whatever else I may want on my own.
Helen of Troy.
Yes. It makes you more whole
reminds of the a story from Aesop’s fables lol
theres a fox who wants grapes in a tree and he cant reach them so he basically says “i didnt want those sour grapes anyways”.
idk maybe its good to admit we want those things but to put them in perspective also. Acknowledge but also let go. because in life there really are greater things to have and those are free.
blessed are the poor in spirit
Like the saying goes, it’s more important who want what you have than have what you want. Sometimes I’m grateful just to have a roof over my head
I want Adelen Russillo Steen!
Yeah, about three of the women soldiers at work. I don’t stand a chance.
IMHO it is always healthier to be honest with yourself about your feelings.
I want to travel overseas with my platonic gf (same one). But I can’t because of her darn dog. We have no one to take care of her. And she has two more good years on her. I’ve been waiting forever.
Absolutely! That’s what I want too. A cure for my negative and cognitive symptoms.
