Compassionate Love: Displaying Compassion for Those Who Struggle with Mental Illness (c)2015 Nancy Virden
I am not sure it is ok to bother anyone with my
happiness, pain, proud moment, fear
I am by myself with no one coming to help, no one to rescue me
I am inadequate, ugly, stupid, always making mistakes
people are hurt by me, tired of me
Who are these who tell me to turn my mood around, change my thoughts?
I am weak, cannot bring improvement to this world!
they do not see
I’m not worth fighting for
I will not tell anyone of my experiences or opinions
I’ll skip the meeting, crawl under the covers, not call anyone and refuse calls,
I’m ashamed, and
better off alone.
Comments are always welcome (see tab below). NOTE: I am not a doctor or mental health professional. I speak only from personal experiences with and observations of mental illness. In no way is this website intended to substitute for professional mental health care.
If you are struggling emotionally today or feeling suicidal, or concerned about someone who is, please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Hope and help can be yours.
