This is something I wrote to someone else today when a friend had a bit of a public meltdown. I switched it around a little but I think more people need to hear it because so many people are fighting their own battles from anxiety, depression or family crisis. I know when I feel that liar telling me I am alone and not worthy I need people to say these words to me because no one is really as alone as they think they are when anxiety or depression strikes.
You have a lot of people that care about you and just as many that have “been there” before.
It is part of the human condition.
Find someone to help you sort it out. Know that even if people don’t admit, we all have moments where we realize we need to start putting things that are in our heads into stacks and start sorting them out to make room for all the good that is NEW. Make room for the good and let it occupy the majority of your head space. There is good in abundance and sometimes we think we don’t deserve it. Take what was haunting you and look at it in the eye and be happy it came, because it made you, but tell it YOU NO LONGER NEED IT and file it away in the attic.
You are much stronger with the people you love and the people that love you back in your corner. Let them help you help yourself.
Thinking of you even if you can’t talk about it yet. Find someone to help.
Here is a little thing I wrote about when I felt and it includes the words my sister used when I reached out that made me laugh. My wise, wise sister. “Unloveable but Likable” Link Click Here
