If any women(any age) are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, feeling lost, lack of self love, etc. I hope this group can help you and allow you to feel comfortable to say anything you would like and I will tell you exactly what I went through and how I got through so many things and ended up where I am today. As well as myself, other members that join the group can also give advice and tell their experience. It's best to look at many women's experiences and solutions because all of the topics that this group will be supporting(above in the first sentence) can affect everyone differently.

Thank you Destiny for creating this group. I'm new to online support groups and would like to start using this as a safe place for discussion and growth. I'm not sure where to start in my "story" but I'm someone who battles anxiety, depression episodes, and am lost on an almost daily basis. I'm able to cope in that I have a job, relationship, family, and friends to keep me distracted (at times but sometimes they add to this!) But I always have this struggle playing in the background. I'm currently taking antidepressants and have been seeing a therapist but my mood can spiral easily. And I especially show my mood to those closest to me (i.e., boyfriend/family). I'm struggling between whether I am too sensitive or I am just around toxic people. I hate that I have to question it and I hate that the toxic people includes my boyfriend/family. I'll speak of my boyfriend since I'm most recently upset. He will at times make poor jokes that hits at insecurities I have. Whenever we talk about them, he apologizes and says it's a poor/throwaway joke but it happens more than I'd like. And he will keep trying to cheer me up or ask me what he can do to make things better. Aw now I feel like a whiney tale. Which makes me think I'm too sensitive. Does anyone have any experience in dealing with people you love who at times can come off so tactless and inconsiderate? I feel like I just put him in this box where he's always inconsiderate and rude but that is not always the case. And how do you cope with this? I feel like I have to brainwash myself. Any advice/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
