So, if you read my last post, you probably imagined me as a vulgar, immature crybaby.  I tend to act before thinking and my last post is evidence of that so I am sorry if I scared or offended anyone with what I wrote.  I am feeling much better now and my mom and I apologized to each other and made up.  Please ignore my last post, and if anyone if actually going through serious issues right now I sincerely hope that you will persevere and feel better.  I hope everyone has a good night.

    As always, you never have to apologize for posting here. This is a safe space of people who are here to listen to you and support you. I’m very glad that you were able to speak to your mom and apologize to one another. Everyone gets frustrated and upset sometimes, it’s not a matter of being immature, it’s human nature. Communication is so hard, and we are bad to have issues when we are communicating with others.

    Stay strong and be gentle with yourself,

    I’m glad you’re feeling better! Everyone has those moments, try not to beat yourself up over it. You did the right thing by apologizing and the next step is moving forward (which is always the hardest part for me). Every single person has rough days and lashes out occasionally. You’re not alone. If you need anything from us, let us know. We are always here for you. Thanks for the update. <3

    Hi, colton95. I’m glad to hear you’re feeling better and were able to make up with your mom. You are totally allowed to have angry, immature moments. Everyone has them. I definitely have them. Even my mom has them! It happens. There’s no reason to beat ourselves up over it. Usually the quicker I catch myself in these moments and apologize to whoever I am acting out on, the quicker I feel better. Thanks for sharing and reminding me that these moments sucks but we can get through them.

    Hi colton95,
    You don’t need to take back what you said. We all have those days where something just sets us off and it shouldn’t but hey, we’re human. I definitely have days where everything should be fine and one little thing sets me off and ruins my day. I yell and rant to everyone that will listen. And then it’s done and I realize I was being immature. It’s just part of life. I’m glad that you trusted us with that moment of anger, and I’m also glad that you’re feeling better and made up with your mom. Never be afraid to use this as an outlet when you are having a hard time.

    Much hope,

    Hi colton95,
    I didn’t think that at all. We all have those moments when we get frustrated and angry. I agree wholeheartedly with Andy’s comment, and I think that rings true for all of us. Your feelings are valid.
    I’m glad that you’re expressing how you feel on here. It can help to talk to people about how you feel instead of simply seething internally. I’m also glad that you and your mom made up and that you’re feeling better. Having time to calm down can help a lot.
    I hope you’re doing well, and thank you for updating us!

    No apologies necessary! Honestly, I would rather you storm up to your room and post here to get everything out than say something hurtful that you don’t mean to your mom, or anyone else that you truly care about. Seriously, if you feel most comfortable using this as an outlet/journal, do it! Whatever is best for you, is perfectly fine with us!

    I hope things start going better for you! You’ve got this. Stay strong, Colton!

    Absolutely no need to apologize. I am glad you and your mom were able to talk things through. And I am glad your are doing better. Also, thanks for the word of encouragement to others.

    Dear Colton,
    No need for apologies…we are happy that you feel safe enough to freely express your feelings and vent to us. It is good to hear that you were able to talk to your mom and work things out. Recognizing the things we want to change in ourselves it the beginning of being able to change it. Taking three deep belly breaths has really helped me maintain composure when I am feeling upset. With the first breath I say to myself, “I am safe”. Second breath, “I am calm,” and third breath, “I can handle this”. It helps me to not internalize and take other people’s actions/reactions personally. Of course, there are times that I make a mistake and have to go for a take 2. We are all human and just want to know that we are safe and loved.
    Sending you love and strength,

    I just read and commented on your last post before I saw this one. Check it out, no one’s issues are more or less serious than anyone else’s. This is because we each live in a subjective reality. What triggers one person may not another and so on. This is a space where you are free to post whatever your truth may be- so write away.
    I thank you for consistently posting and keeping us all involved. We are all in your corner mate.

    Peace and love,
