the people in your life only want you to get better for their own sake?

Sometimes but often I feel like they would do that for me so I would do that for them maybe? :)

Ahh
For me it's really other people.. it's not like I asked for these mental health issues and I am trying to get better. I think people could just learn to be kind. It would help so much..

I understand I had this issue in the beginning of my recovery. Struggled to really be understood by staff and peers. I wished for kindness and I received it! Maybe you can really ask for some change from those around you if that what you think you need

I want to get better but pushing me won't help. Thing is they don't want to understand you and be kind, they want to feel good about themselves 'helping'.

Or hurting in some instances. I just find it better to have a give and take kinda relationship instead of just others taking from me. It’s hard to understanding when it happens all the time... I’m happy for my mental health team because they are very understanding but it’s others I’ve been struggling with. Things that matter to me don’t matter To them! Or vice versa like I have little to bring to the table. I’m unmarried no children and a prescribed pill popper. Can’t get much lower in the family chain.
What I find helps and helps the mood is hope. Hope can lightened many self defeating feelings and hope can give happiness even if just brief.
I hope you both feel better as I hoped I would feel better and that I am
