Is it really that bad?

I've put my mental health on the back burner for years because my situation isn't as painful as others. The way I cope with it seems exaggerated compared to others. And when I do reach out for help, I feel like I'm being ignored and maybe coping with it a different way would help me get the help I need. I often go misunderstood because I hide my emotions and when I come across a situation that reminds me of the trauma, I lash out. And people don't get it.

Re: Is it really that bad?

It doesn't matter if it isn't as painful as others. It is still pain, a rose with thorns. You are still hurting, pricking your finger. Stop and breathe. You deserve to be happy, you deserve to love yourself. Under those thorns there is a soft rose that needs to be cared for. Nobody will water your flower if you cannot expose it. It will never grow without sunlight.
