It’s easy to get isolated and feel alone. Although our world is the most wired and connected society ever, it’s increasingly clear that technology doesn’t always provide the nurture and care every human deserves. But what happens when we get in the way and begin to form a worldview that cycles around isolation?
“No one understands” is a phrase I know I’ve said many times. And if I think about why I said it it generally orbits around me not having the strength or courage to try and get help. In fact, if I’m honest, I usually say this when I’m lazy and sinking into apathy. But worse yet, by saying this, I’m perpetuating my downward spiral into isolation and loneliness. In short- I’m causing my own destruction.
Of course, mental health is about the health of our mind. If we’re healthy then we’re able to make good decisions that profit us. But it’s we’re mentally ill we make bad decisions and those decisions can pile up and make things even worse – to a point where we can’t see the hope that lies all around us.
There are people who understand your situation. But you need to share the struggle for them to know you need the help. Why not bring it up with a friend or trusted adult sometime today?
