The thing is, I can’t tell people how I feel because I feel like I don’t deserve to be pitied.
I feel that because people I know, have much bigger problems than my own and they don’t even want to hear about my pea-sized problems. Yes, I have harmed myself in the past, get panic attacks AND I have clinical depression. I suppose all of those things make me COMPLETELY normal.
I say this to you now: your problems do matter! Even if your close friend is in an abusive relationship or you think about problems the third world countries have to face.
Sometimes your problems cut deeper than the blade you once cut yourself with.
I guess what I’m trying to say is, talk about your problems so they don’t accumulate into a heavy tonne of more problems. You’ll feel a lot lighter. Warning: weighing scales will not be affected.
And now I’ll leave you with a little slice of advice:
They might not always be as big of a problem as your friends are, but they are the biggest problems to you.
