Again, I write from my own experiences…
I was once told by someone that I am fragile. I have also been told by someone else that I am not as strong as them…
And I get it, they have probably seen me cry more than once and also know about my breakdowns.
So my question to you is: is being depressed or even anxious a sign of being fragile and/or weak?
What are your thoughts?
Yes, when I am going through a bout my self esteem takes an enormous hit. So I feel less than anyone, I believe I am less than anyone else and feel unworthy.
Does that make us fragile or weak?
Do we still wake the next day although inside we’d rather sleep forever?
Do we still wonder what we can do to get rid of the internal heartbreaking pain we feel?
Do we still research, read about, sometimes ask for help or reach out, etc in order to find something that will work for us, although we have no energy in our bodies?
Do we still manage to somehow function somewhat, and get through the days at work, school, or looking after children, etc?
Yes, we hide it all behind a smile many times, but that is not a sign of weakness, is it?
I know what I think about all that, but I am very interested to see what your thoughts are…
Share your thoughts with honesty please. Don’t say what you think others may want to hear…
Share also what you think when you’re down or anxious even if it differs from what you think when you’re doing ok…
I guess I am doing a bit of research for future posts, so help me out! 😉
