If you suffer from a mental health condition you know how hopeless it feels. The deep dread that has hijacked your happy makes it seem like you’ll never rid yourself of the symptoms, the way it makes you think and the absolute lonely. It can be an all-consuming experience that comes with these unseen ailments.
Because the feelings of isolation tend to be intense, we end up ruminating on how alone we feel. This can make it difficult to move past this emotional intensity and find paths to reasserting our authentic selves as lord and master of our minds.
So, here’s why I think you shouldn’t quit. If you keep going and keep in mind that you’re truly not the only one in a constant state of mental pain, then I think you’re gonna have a better shot at reaching out to find like-minded people. Also, you may get to a place where you awaken to see your loved ones, friends and family as people who want to see you get better and are willing to support you, all the way.
Keep going until you find the support you need, I found a tremendous support system on twitter of all places. When I was at my lowest and loneliest point, those with mental health challenges reached out and as a result, I made some good friends and didn’t feel like I was battling PTSD and depression on my own… Maybe Twitter can help you too.
