Take A Trip Into The “Upside Down”

Recently, I watched the new science fiction series called, “Stranger Things.” The characters in this web show face the challenge of venturing into this dark world called the “upside down.” Some of the characters get lost in an alternate reality where they are being chased by a monster. Their loved ones frantically try to find them and help them to escape. This world, as dark as it was, existed right underneath their noses, and they didn’t even know it.

face your inner demons

While I was watching this show, I was triggered and I started to experience flashbacks from traumatic events in my past. A wave of intense fear came over me, and I started to cry. At that point, I realized that I still had yet to explore my own “upside down.” There was still a lot of underlying fear and sadness that I had not dealt with from my past. I think that we all have our own inner demons that need to be faced and dealt with properly. Everyone has their own, “upside down” world, where everything seems gloomy and frightening. Some people call it depression, others call it anxiety, and others still might refer to it as bipolar disorder.

Face Your Inner Demons

Nobody wants to face their inner demons. It isn’t an easy adventure to complete. However, once you make that choice, you won’t regret it. You will come out of the journey stronger and wiser. Even if you collect bumps and bruises along the way, it’s better to get to the heart of your sadness and discomfort. It’s not healthy to shove your feelings down to the bottom of your soul, to the point where you can’t feel anything at all.

Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help

If you need guidance along your journey, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Some people are afraid to face their fears because we are told that we aren’t allowed to have an, “upside down.” We are told to, “snap out of it”, and, “just be happy.” This advice does not prove to be helpful, and pushes us further into the abyss of fear. When we are struggling, we need to be met with love, not fear. Don’t let another person’s judgment stop you from completing your journey. Also, don’t let your own judgments of yourself hold you back. You owe it to yourself to face your fears directly.

There is no shame in asking for help. There are many resources on the internet that can be beneficial when you’re feeling blue. If you’re looking for an objective listener, you can go to the website: www.7cupsoftea.com. On this website, there are many, “listeners”, who received some training to help people with their problems. It is still a peer support group, and should not be replaced with professional help. However, you can talk to one of the listeners about your problem, and they will do their best to help you.

If you’re looking for some relief from your problem, but you don’t really feel like talking about it, then I would recommend a guided meditation. There are many guided meditations on YouTube for PTSD, anxiety, and other disorders. There are also meditations that will help you to relax or fall asleep. I hope that you will find the solution that works best for you. I wish you the best of luck on your journey into the, “upside down.”
