Have you ever had this moment?

Yesterday when I was working in the office, I felt sad from my heart suddenly, with the insecurity and helplessness. I am not sure if I was concerned too much about my future. I tried to breath deeply and released these negative feelings with the ways recommended in psychology books, but neither worked out. I couldn't even walk after work. So dear friends, have you ever had this moment?

This happens too many times. I feel cold suddenly or just don't want to talk to anyone. Sometimes I couldn't tell what the feeling really is. A little angry but also with sadness. Most of the time I don't know what I'm upset about. Maybe I am just tired or lonely at that moment.

Hey indahfth, I am sorry for the late response as I was on a business trip last week, and quite busy these days. I know don't need to be worried about the future, as the future will come as its own way. But sometimes, just worrying, couldn't control myself. Have a good day~

Yes, people do suffer from insecurity from time to time. That can be due to mental streses coming from things that took place in the course of the day, I would say. Relaxing the mind will help getting relieved of the depressive feelings. Mindfulness meditation is one good way for mental relaxation.

Maybe it has something to do with my life model. I would try the mindfulness meditation. There's a saying in psychology books, all feelings(both positive and negative) are energy, they will come and will go. So the best we can do is to face them and keep them flowing. Thank you for your advice.

I do feel this once in a while. It's either an anxiety attack, or the feeling of helplessness. It comes with all the burden that I struggle in life. It's hard to shake off the feeling. I look to family and/or friends when I feel this. Sometimes I rant about it here on myLot to make myself feel better. I do hope you're feeling better now.

Hi, bounce, thank you for sharing your experience here. Yes, I do feel better now though things didn't go well in the past months. I'm learning that, no matter the anxiety or the helplessness feeling, are just my emotions, not myself. So I think I can face them better when they occur again next time. And good luck to you~
