I know we all feel this way, even if we know it’s not true.
“You know that you’re not the only person on this planet to be in pain.
But it doesn’t matter. Because it looks like everyone around you is just fine. You’re the only one who has a hard time getting out of bed, who feels overwhelmed by everything, no matter how small. You’re the only one who feels like an impostor and a fraud. You’re the only one who feels irritable and on edge for no reason. You’re the only one who can’t seem to get through the day. You’re the only one who has strange, sad, uncomfortable and cruel thoughts.
But you’re not. You’re really not.”
I’ve said it before. We all know plenty of people who are dealing with mental health issues, even if they don’t talk about it. So, you aren’t alone. This is true. The article below has a lot of good advice on how to remind yourself of that on a regular basis. I’d give it a read if you feel this way, and even if not, I’d file it away for the next time that you do.
