You might be feeling disconnected, hopeless, helpless, unfulfilled and unhappy with yourself. If left unaddressed, your self-esteem and self-worth will be affected which will continue to maintain your feelings of sadness, anxiety, and disconnection.
It might feel difficult to muster up the energy to get things done. Your attention and efforts for self-care falls to the wayside, and you have difficulty seeing the good side of situations.
You may find yourself being selective or hyperaware of the things that could go wrong. We start to make negative and inaccurate assumptions about ourselves, others and our world around us through this “black” colored lens. Eventually, this affects our core beliefs about ourselves – feeling unworthy and unlovable.
