The voice of loneliness and doubt speaks to everyone. It is the one that says, “if people only knew how you felt…what you did…who you really are”.
This is the voice that makes people pull away from getting the support they need right when they need it the most. It says that suffering alone is better than revealing one’s pain to someone - especially to someone you know! And sometimes there is not a safe person. Or perhaps your friends and family have already listened as much as they can, and you don’t want to burden them further.
In times like these, you need a supportive person who can help you to feel better as soon as possible. If you are feeling this way today, please call me to see if therapy might be right for you. No one should have to do it all alone.
