I am having trouble finding value in myself, especially this time of year. I am disabled and when things get dark it’s too easy to tell myself that I don’t matter and very difficult to find reasons that I do. I feel myself starting to spiral and I really don’t want to go to that horrible place again.
I’m sorry you’re feeling down. You matter more than you know! Being disabled doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to be happy. I suffer from seasonal depression and lately I’ve been trying to not spiral as well. Do things you enjoy! Make things , sing , scream if you want to! You’re feelings are valid and I want you to know you have a place in this world. I love you.
