This world is broken! I am broken and scared! I just don’t get it, you know, why people are so blind to the pain of others. Why people are so against helping others heal, especially their mental health.
Here is the thing. I was bullied as a child for being different, but I’m not going to go harm innocent children who had nothing to do with it. I’m not going to seek revenge on anyone. Why? Because I’m working through my trauma with a therapist.
Yes, we need to have stricter gun laws, more background checks, and all that jazz. But, what we really really need is more access to therapy and to stop the stigma that needing mental health is a bad thing.
It doesn’t make me weak to see a therapist. No, it makes me strong because I’m facing my trauma. I’m working through my pain and trying to make sense of my depression. I’m trying to climb out of the dark hole that I’m currently in.
I know some people don’t understand why talk therapy works. But it does. It’s an unbiased outlet to cry, to vent, to sort through the pain that is embedded deep inside you.
Basically, what I’m saying is, check on your people. And let’s help make therapy as normal as going to the dentist!
