Has anyone ever told you that in a way that made you feel like your problems were insignificant and there was something horribly wrong with you because you couldn’t just snap out of whatever you were going through? I most certainly have experienced this. Not a good feeling!
The other way to say this is to let you know that you’re not alone. Other people are fighting some of the same battles as you. We’re all trying to make sense of our lives and our surroundings. This is the human condition. And there are people who actually do understand precisely what you are going through, but that doesn’t make it any less painful or less scary.
And to re-iterate: you are not alone and there are people who get it or who are willing to get it.
