You can tell your friends that you have a serious funk. Don’t let it getting in the way of doing a good thing. Get help where you feel comfortable doing so. Spend time with those with a healthy view point. Toxic friends are toxic. There are plenty of articles are out there on that. Pull back from the toxic. Relatives can be toxic; someone said “relatives know how to push your buttons because they installed them”, Look for a new perspective on things, adopt the healthy perspectives you like. Minor healthy changes can help set the stage for major healthy changes. Get healthy in all respects. Reflect and plan ahead. Space out the time you need for yourself and move forward. There are no cold beers in heaven, hell or elsewhere….unless you reincarnate as a Trappist Monk in which case I would buy a case. If you are in a funk, make the case for taking care of you.
