    What is going wrong?

    @neeno Everything. It's the same rollercoaster but it always lands in a miserable place where nothing works and nothing matters.

    @rutee07 what's up bro? Wanna talk about it?

    t.me/Floydimus if you want to just vent to someone without judgement.

    I can understand how frustrating it could as I am in the same boat.

    @F1973 Some are work related, some are not. I just want to take a break from everything. Quit my job and disconnect from everyone else and just sleep all day.

    @rutee07 damn, that sucks. Does it have anything to do with that thing with the CTO you mentioned in a past rant?

    If you have no one to talk to or don't have anyone you can trust/feel comfortable talking to about this stuff, I have found that it helps a lot to just write somewhere all your frustrations. I was pretty upset a while back but I have no one I can share some deep stuff, so one day I needed to vent and I pulled up my phone and started writing on a note-taking app. It helped, didn't cure, but helped.

    @neeno Not much about that. Career, personal life, etc. I think my mental health is going downhill once again.

    @neeno Thanks for the suggestion.

    Can't you take a break from everything? Like call in sick for a week or two, stay away from computers a bit, try to find some new hobbie? I imagine that'd help.

    @rutee07 that sucks man.

    In all this mess, make sure you take care of your physical and mental health. Time once lost cannot be gained again. Everything else can be fixed.

    We are here for you. Stay strong.

    Also, you can try using the app 7Cups to talk to an anon stranger and get therapy too. Solid concept.

    @rutee07 when the emotions become overwhelming I do what @neeno suggested as well. Write everything on my phone's notepad. Other times I get a good cry and follow that up with a long sleep. Or just muffle a good shout into a pillow. Anything that feels I let something out of me. Somehow people helps too. They don't have to talk they just have to be there. And we your fellow DevRanters are here 🤗

    @neeno I tried to take a break for a week. It didn't help. I wish I had more money to feel secured about quitting my job without any backup. I have some money but anxious that it may not be enough.

    @F1973 Thank you. I tried 7Cups and it didn't work for me. Maybe it's just the person I matched with. I'm thinking about signing up again for therapy.

    @iamai I'm gonna try this out again. Thanks. I used to write my thoughts and feelings but when I go back and read them, I feel bad about how fucked up my brain is that I would ever think about those things I wrote.

    @rutee07 definitely try to go to a therapist/shrink, it'll help wonders.

    @rutee07 Yes, please go for therapy.

    If you haven't earlier, then let me tell you that it is immensely helpful.

    Journalling thoughts, venting out, talking to a friend, or therapy all work the same way. They help us get thoughts out of our mind and provide a kind of validation/reassurance.

    Also, one of my strategy to solve any problem at life or work is first to understand the problem well and then figure out the root cause.

    This actually helps me find better and lasting solutions.

    Addressing symptoms will only have temporary relief. So maybe that's why your one week break didn't help.

    @rutee07 HEY! *slap* *slap* man up! There are women dying in corners of the world right now because they can't make enough money to support themselves. There are men starving tonight because they can't affor enough food! Shut up and get back in the fight! Your fight is not over yet! You have to get somewhere in life! You understand me? This is not your stop! Take your punching gloves and get back in the game! You have no time to be tired! *kicks her out*

    @NoMad don’t *slap him as a punishment. He likes being hit!

    So everything going left then?

    Be strong!

    @NoMad I might as well just die in the corner too 'cause I'm a broken, unstable, toxic piece of shit who ruins everything I lay my hands on.

    @rutee07 excuses, excuses!
    You're still alive and have a life. Use it while it lasts. Life is a time-limited free gift.

    (PS. I know depression makes shit harder than it should be, but no one can fight it but you. You are the chosen one for this fight. 😘)

    Sorry to hear that man. I probably give the worst advice going in these situations so I'll hold off from pretending to have all the answers, but thinking of you. You got this 👍

    You can try playing Hyperscape. I just started yesterday. Drown your sorrows in games my friend.
