Hey everyone!
A silent overthinker here, who realised it's time to break the silence and talk to someone before this brain of mine explodes. I've been struggling with my mental health since I was quite young, always thinking it would pass - puberty you know - and I would grow older into being happy and full of life. Well, it didn't happen and I don't know where did I go wrong. Anyway various series of episodes have finally brought me here. I am in a good place in my life at the moment (the healthy part of my brain acknowledges it) and I don't want to ruin it with my negativity, anxiety and moping. I hope you are all healing one way or the other. Sending much love to everyone out there and please remember that you are all needed here!

Hello! 🖐 I'm so happy you're in a better place at the moment, remember its still okay to not be okay though, and to be gentle to yourself in times when perhaps you do struggle more xx

Thanks darling for your kind words. What I mean being at a good place is I have job, relationship etc but despite of that I still feel lost, empty and numb. I always thought if I achieve this or that I would be this happy bright person a lot of people seem to be. Happiness in small things, right? I can do it for a little while and then I fall into this hole again. At the end of the day I realise that if I would die today, I would finally be at peace. I'm tired feeling like this. Just tired. But thank you for your energy! Hope you are well! Xx
