Default Highest level of functioning

I absolutely hate these words. It is what you are left with in this life. I am supposed to be happy and grateful i made it to this point.

I am sorry but look around there are so many "higher levels of functioning" i know dont compare myself to anyone doing better than me just look around and see how much better i am than a homeless person (per DBT philosophy) find a person who self harms is in the hospital constantly etc etc etc. UGH UGH

Just venting UGH. One of my alone nights.

Smile Re: Highest level of functioning

I can't even imagine what my highest level of functioning would be. Maybe where I'm at is it? Seems incredible... but maybe it is. I'm not interested in trying to do anything about it under any circumstances. I've now just sort-of become a floating reed carried this way & that by whatever currents I happen to encounter.

I'm so sorry you're hurting so much, dancinglady I'm so sorry you're feeling so lonely. Is there anyone that you can reach out to? Any friends or family members? I'm so sorry, it must be very hard for you. Please don't give up. We're here for you to listen to you if you need it. We won't leave you alone you here. Comparing ourselves to others is tempting, but it's best to avoid it. Remember that even the people who seem the happiest at the moment may be struggling with something at the moment. You don't know for sure. Try to remember that if you can. I'm sure you'll be able to get through all of this. Just try to do your best. That's all you can do after all. Remember that we're here for you if you need it. Feel free to PM me anytime. Let me know if I can do something to help you. Wish you good luck! Let us know how it goes. I'm so sorry you have to deal with all of this, dancinglady

I think just doing what we are mentally & physically capable of & willing to try more if the opportunity arises is what we should be satisfied with.
