You will always hear someone say to you “always treat people with respect and kindness because, you never know what’s going on mentally.” And it’s unfortunately the truth.
I have had my own battle with depression & anxiety. It’s not fun at all. Making everything seem like it’s fine and you are happy. When on the inside you just wanna explode and drown in your own sorrow.
Usually people that deal with this don’t want to worry their loved ones that they are going through some tough times and don’t want to burden them with their own problems.
You have to always take care of yourself first before taking care of others.
If you want to make sure your circle is okay and happy, you have to make sure that you are okay to continue on because, if you don’t face it everything goes down beginning with yourself.
Talk about it.
It is scary and you don’t want to bother others with this but dealing with personal problems that you just need to talk someone to let it out is one of the best things to do. Dealing with something mentally and trying to handle it by yourself can crumble.
I am always the type of person that wants to take care of everyone and make sure those around me are okay and doing good with their lives when I forget about my well being.
If I don’t focus on the well being of my mental health, I can’t continue onto the things in the future to that I want to accomplish.
Make some changes.
If there are problems going on with a relationship/friend/school/work etc, and you know you have to get out of the equation get out.
Never stay somewhere toxic knowing things can or will get ugly.
I deal with personal problems everyday and it always helps to talk about with my loved ones. Some days are good and some are bad but as long as I progress myself to get out of that “funk”, something always helps.
Remember to always treat others with kindness because you never know what is going on personally which words can sometimes trigger negative thoughts.
