Sometimes having a Mental Illness can be a really lonely place to be, your friends who think they understand dont, and your family who try to be empathic dont really understand and get hurt and frustrated at not seemingly able to help.
Sometimes people dont even know how to act around you and are scared to invite you anywhere in case you kick off.
How do we overcome this ?
The best answer is to let freinds and family help with the small stuff so they feel useful and build up a support network of other like minded people with Mental Illness.
Sometimes we have to remember to protect people aswell, especially people who love us who feel really sad and frustrated when they cant help us.
Let family and freinds help with the small stuff so they feel useful and talk to your peers and support networks about the tricky stuff, what do you think ??
