Why You Shouldn’t Quit

Spread the love

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.

Firstly, no matter how you are feeling, you’re not alone in your fight, sadly, far from it. Because we are limited to living in our own heads, we are subjected to its state at any given second in our lives. This creates our individualistic perception of self and as a result, we see the world from our point of view.
If you are locking horns with depression, anxiety, etc, then you know the battle is real and can feel like you’re the only one on the planet. But, are you? of course not. So then, what makes it feel like we are? I believe that your mental illness has infiltrated your mind and has exacerbated the feeling of loneliness by its very gifted talent; the art of negative self-talk. I know this mental health enemy very well and this has been my biggest battle.

Fight back, beat negative self-talk

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.
