I met some friends today tht were nice but I went back to my coping strategy. How do I not think I'm a bad person? Coz I used to get judged

    @ellie2000 If you have bad feelings about yourself, my best tip is to not let them define yourself. Instead, focus on the good feelings about yourself, and be the best version of yourself possible~ :wink:

    Hi @ellie2000
    In my experience when we are used to having a certain reaction to something it's difficult to change how our brain processes it - though hopefully as we have more and more good experiences we start making more healthy associations. It might take time but I hope you'll be able to leave behind your coping strategy. In the meantime it might be useful to build self-esteem and as @Jimette said to start working on viewing yourself in a more positive light. Let us know how you're doing :)
