I know what you're going through...and it's going to be okay
Depression and/or anxiety is no joking matter, and for as much as people share information on the web, it still is a very young illness. We still have experimental drugs, therapy methods and misunderstandings about it. But I am here to tell you that you do matter. That there are reasons for you to be here. That even though it is hard you are going to get through this. Please understand you are not weak just because you struggle to get out of bed. You are not a failure because things become to hard to handle on your own. I know what its like to be curled up in the fetal position in your bed, staring at the ceiling with no more tears to cry. I understand that it was hard to shower, brush your teeth or even answer the phone.
Please don't be scared to reach out for help. Those that truly care about you will do everything in there power to help you. Once you climb out the darkness you will be able to see them again. Don't be afraid to reach out to professionals, don't be scared to send a million text messages to friends. Hell message me, I'll chat with you. Start small, don't try to tackle the large things all at once.
I promise you that you are important, you mean something. We are not meant to live just to want to die. This world is messy and painful and you are not alone in feeling this. Having confidence and loving yourself takes tons of work and most of us struggle with working on that. People sometimes don't see things that are hiding under the surface. Trust me when I saw that if we work together we can be a much better society. Be there for friends, loved ones and show kindness to someone you think is struggling.
I am here for you and I will always try to be honest in my blogs. I want to show you that you are not alone. That no matter what your background is that mental illness is a very real thing. Am I nervous about seeing a psychologist? Of course I am. But I know that I will finally be able to voice out the demons that hang inside of me. Do what you have to do to seek the help you need. You matter to me, to someone and to yourself.
*In effort not to write an entire novel and save some of the gory details for another day, I have left some details out about the past few weeks. I will however update you on progress and therapy sessions as they arrive. Stay strong and remember you are loved. <3
Love and Hugs Everyone
