Feeling a burden

Postby penelope299 » Mon Oct 14, 2019 12:26 pm

Why is it that we are encouraged to tell someone if we feel low or suicidal but when you do you end up feeling that you're an attantion seeker and being a pain? Telling people how i feel just leaves me feeling worse and vulnerable. I almost feel cringe worthy. Is this part and parcel of depression? My depression boils down to thoughts that permeate my life telling me im a joke and a failure.

Hey yes depression tells us lies and makes us feel bad. Try to think how you would feel if a friend told you that they were feeling low.. would you think they were a pain? No, you’d be happy they trusted you and you’d want to help in any small way you could right??? Talk to yourself kindly as you would talk to a friend xx
