Struggling

I’m just having such a hard time just trying to keep my head up I know everybody has their good and bad days but lately I just feel like everyday has been a bad day. I do what I need to do I’m in school Full time and working full time just nothing feels right. I just don’t feel happy anymore and I haven’t for a long time. I’m thinking about going back to therapy but I just don’t know yet. I just wish things were how they used to be. I know I’ll be okay and I’ll get through this but right now just everything going on has just been a lot to handle and i just feel like I’m always expected to be the strong one and be okay but the strong ones struggle too.

Hi friend. I can sooo relate to being the strong one all of the time. Sometimes it feels like people forget that those that play the strong roles have struggles too. And then it feels lonely trying to get through them because people don’t seem to see it. Been there. You are not alone!

I’ve been having a steady run of bad days myself lately. I’m sorry friend. I don’t know what all you’re going through but I see you and I hear you. I want you to know that someone cares and loves you.

If you need to talk about it, you’re welcome to, okay? Things can get better. I’m sorry it’s tough right now. Do whatever you need to refresh your mind. Have you tried using guided meditation audio? This has helped me a lot lately.

Sending hugs your way.

Hello,

I’m sorry that you’ve been having such a hard time recently. It sounds like you are trying your hardest to keep yourself busy, which is good, but just know that no one should have to be strong at ALL times. That is an unrealistic standard for yourself, and while it’s hard to let go of the idea of being the strong one that constantly keeps it together, you absolutely deserve to rest, care for yourself, take breaks, and seek help when you feel overwhelmed.

Going back to therapy is a good idea if you need someone to talk to and help you sort out some complicated feelings.

Just know that you are never alone in your struggles. I’m sure there are people in your life who love you and want to see you doing your best, whether that best is tackling lots of things, or taking time off to heal and recuperate emotionally and physically. And if you ever need an anonymous place to vent, we are all here for you as well.

Hang in there, and choose to do what you feel like is best for your health. Your mental and physical health trumps all else. You are heard, you are seen, you are loved. You are brave and I’m proud of you for being here after life has been so rough for quite a while.

Much love to you.
