"I don't know...This sounds like a waste of time...."
Often times when we're online searching, reading
or talking to someone in hopes of finding the answer, that "Magic Answer" that will fix all of your problems, we get more insecure than we already are. We're very sensitive. Sometimes we feel very hurt & raw. Other times we're in a horrible mood.
Sometimes every word we read sounds ridiculous.
It's just hopeless. We don't understand what our problem really is. Most of all, we feel like something is wrong with us, but we can't put our finger on it.
The emotional feelings network of sites is here
covering a broad spectrum of problems that people commonly have. The strange thing about it... they all seem to touch each
other in some way.... by this I mean... they're all related to each other in some way.
It's a vicious circle. If you feel as though
all your troubles are related, it's because they are. When so much is wrong & so little is right...
As you can see, or count above, you've been offered 41 opportunities
to learn something more than what you see right here on this page, some opportunities that might help you feel better, by
using the tools provided:
the underlined link words.

of the symptoms listed for anxiety disorders or depression are things that you are experiencing. recognizing what you're experiencing
is important. you can do it! just reading thru the descriptive articles will help you until you find something that sounds
just like what it is that you're experiencing!
there's also the opportunity of reading more aobut that particular similarity by clicking
on the underlined linked titles of articles that have similar information which can be found on each page!
Do you feel like... the light's on ... no one's home!
You're understanding what I'm saying but you keep thinking... this isn't about
When you're experiencing a mental disorder, it's a medical
illness. Many people don't believe that, but it's true. Your thinking may be distorted. You might not be making the best decisions.
You may be self medicating your pain and hurt being caused by these bad decisions with negative coping mechanisms. Drinking,
smoking, using drugs, etc. can also cause distorted thinking.
If you weren't experiencing something wrong.... you wouldn't be
Each emotion or feeling page offers you a definition of the word, articles pertaining to the word & explanations in
some cases, of how to deal with the emotion or feeling.
That's the truth... so you must learn how to deal with them.
Learning how to correct behaviors that you've been using your entire life...
got teens? if you have teens, are a teen or know someone that has teens, or you'll soon be dealing with you kids becoming teens...
this is the place to turn... it's mental illness, emotions, feelings & life as teens deal with it.

in there... there's more than enough info to keep you busy reading while i finish up the site!

Need to make changes in your lifestyle? changes will also help you with those changes you need to make.

If you procrastinate... this site's for you!
Of course, the self pages.... learning about your own self is essential in recovery.
where does all the information on the sites come from?
The information is researched on the internet,
in books, in magazines, ezines, newsletters & thru my own personal experience; as well as the experiences reported to
me by other victims or those in recovery with whom I've spoken to personally.
At the bottom of each page is a list of web links that
are the web addresses to the site from which I found the articles displayed on each page.
If references are listed at the bottom of the
articles I read, then you can usually find the references listed below the underlined link article title. Clicking on those
links will take you to the page the article was posted on.
i can't do this!
If you continue thinking that you can't do something....
you won't be able to do it.
If you begin to explore the sites in the emotional feelings network of sites and you still have a negative attitude, you'll most likely never use
the opportunities offered you with every underlined link word in the site.
When you're reading along and you see an underlined
link word, you'll most likely ignore it. Negative attitudes hurt us as much as being totally pessimistic can hurt us. If all
you think about are bad things....
....then bad things will happen. If you don't take advantage
of the opportunities afforded you to educate yourself, so you can understand more about what you're feeling.... well, then
you'll continue to feel bad, have a negative attitude and become an eternal pessimist.
Positive thinking can change your life. If you've been living in fear, perhaps you have been
imagining lots of "what ifs." That's what I did. I lived in fear for most of my life. It's not a good thing. Positive thinking
can change your life.
What if you just said, "I can do this."?
Your goal needs to be recognizing similar symptoms that you're experiencing to be able to
begin to identify what your problem is. Positive thinking, feeling confident in identifying with what you're reading about
can happen, if you choose to follow the path of underlined link words! It's a method to tie together all the small likenesses
of your feelings, symptoms & emotions!
When you click on the underlined
link words on each page of every website in the network, you'll travel to another page, that might be in another site.
A new window will pop up and it will give you information concerning the word that you clicked on.
Each underlined link
word is an opportunity for you to understand more completely, adding additional educational benefits to your immediate
knowledge of the word.
What can additional information
do for you? What opportunity am I talking about when I mention opportunities being offered with each underlined link
Each piece of information
may open a door for you. It might not be a door opened today, but the more you learn, the more likely you will acquire knowledge
that will open your mind more, offering you a more complete understanding of what you're facing in your life.
Might be, two months down the road, you'll think....
"My dad used to feel like a failure. I remember clicking on that word, "failure"
& reading about how feeling like a failure can cause depression. Maybe he was depressed and not mean like I thought he
was. Maybe the reason he acted like he didn't care was because he was so depressed!"
What happens when you realize something
It's inspiring. It's insight
you can use to further your understanding of your life dysfunctions so you can better recover
It's reason to keep trying.
It's a reason to be hopeful for more understanding....
no matter what stage of recovery
you are in.... realizations are precious! That's why underlined link words are so important.
They are the stepping stones that you'll need to step on in your recovery.

you'll need & expose some issues that are connected to your core issues, whether they be mental health issues, an eating
disorder, sexual abuse, domestic violence, an unresolved trauma just to name a few!

layer down under that! just as the meaning indicates... another layer of things to
discover, mull over in your mind or continue learning about from the other sites!
