Anxiety and depression has been with me for a very long time. Don’t we have it all inside us? Some of us hide it better than others, some of us are lucky to be surrounded by people who genuinely love us and support us. It has been hard dealing it alone. You can’t fool yourself that it’s better to be alone, confided with your high walls. You don’t bother anyone.
Staying away and staying silent because you don’t want to disturb your friends. They can be easily fooled into thinking you are doing fine.
A lot of people will say choose yourself, love yourself. Let’s not sugarcoat those words. It is so overrated nowadays. It’s not that simple. It never is. A lot of us are stock in the “planning” never progressing. Time flies so fast. Do you really want to spend it being stock? Push harder and push through.
