Summer rearing it's head...

When I was little I used to love summer but over the years I've had disappointment after disappointment and it has left me anxious when it's approaching. It reminds me of occasions where my friends didn't invite me on holiday, or when I was younger and didn't do anything because we were too poor. It just brings up a lot of negative emotions. Is there anyone else who doesn't feel so massively excited or maybe even a little depressed when they realise it dawns on them it's approaching? I dunno what to do about this mindset I know it's really negative but I can't help it

All posts welcome not necessarily just people who feel the same.

Thanks

This doesn't apply to me but I have a couple of friends who feel like that - did you know this thing has a name? It's apparently called seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and affects a lot of people, so you're definitely not alone. I can also see why you're not too keen on it, because of the experiences you've had over the years.

Yeah, the winter season affects more people because of lack of sunlight (and this can mostly be treated with proper lighting), so it is commonly associated with this disorder, but it happens in the summertime as well. Don't have any idea of what the treatment for that is, though :rolleyes:

Maybe some kind of therapy that deals with the negative associations I'm making

I wonder if the thread will be moved to Chat so that OP can't post anonymously anymore?

Well it doesn't have anything to do with relationships. It's more to do with Mental health though that forum isn't as popular, but at least you can post anonymously there
(So yeah, move it to Mental health )

it's more of a relationships/chat/mental health I thought it's best to stick it here. But we'll see.

Your opinion on summer?
