what to do when feeling/getting stuck with thoughts/emotions?
I've been journalling for a while now and it helps somewhat, but I've noticed that I get stuck - and I mean really stuck - ever such a lot. When it tends to happen - I hit a glitch in my thinking or emotions - I either retreat to bed, sit in a chair and stare just stare at things, or what especially happens is I come online.
All the while I'm going to these default behaviours, my problems and jobs that need to be done are building up, and life is passing me by and some situations get worse.
I've been trying to think how can I unblock when this happens. Does anyone know what causes a person to get stuck? I wondered - is it because they've experienced invalidation?
At the moment I know I need to go to the shops but I feel that really I want someone to talk to - perhaps to help someone else - but really I know that I need help to unblock. I'm not sure why this keeps happening. I tend to feel like I really want to be with someone and turn to them for some kind of emotional support or reassurance.

Re: what to do when feeling/getting stuck with thoughts/emotions?
I don't know, but I can really relate to what you wrote about feeling stuck. Right now I feel like everything is falling down around me and my energy is gone. I end up on the Internet for hours just zoning out, emotionally eating, obsessing - whatever. I need to do so much, but I just can't. Is it mental exhaustion? I don't know but I've experienced a lot of invalidation in my life. I like the idea of needing to unblock - but I'm sorry to say I don't know how to do that yet
