Default My self esteem is in the tank

I知 struggling with major abandonment issues and I feel absolutely horrible . Just for today I知 going to try to stop crying out and just sit in the center of the vortex. I知 still getting less then 5 hours sleep. I feel like I知 burning up with passion, like I知 spiritually sick with consumption. The only thing that makes me feel good is running.

Smile Re: My self esteem is in the tank

I'm sorry you are having such a difficult time. You mentioned sitting in the middle of the vortex. As you may already know (if by chance you've happened on some of my previous replies to various threads) my own technique for handling intrusive thoughts & disturbing emotions is the practice that is referred to as "compassionate abiding". I think it is perhaps similar... simply allowing oneself to dwell in the eye of the storm, feel it's power, breathe into it & perhaps even smile to it with as much compassion & lovingkindness as one can muster. I am glad that running helps you to feel good. I myself don't run. But I do walking meditation. And that is helpful for me. Hope you begin to feel better soon.
