So I’m scrolling through Twitter as I do every morning while I lay in bed. Normally while I start mindlessly scrolling my mind starts to wander. I spaced out for awhile and during that I came to the realization that when I go into these moods of depression and sadness, I tend to distance myself from people. Me being me, I had to tweet it because that’s just what I do.
I think realizing what I’m doing is an important part of fixing the issue. A lot of the time, I don’t like to talk about my problems. I would rather help other’s with their problems so I don’t have to deal with mine. Like a temporary distraction. I don’t mean to distance myself from the most important people in my life, but somehow I manage to do it subconsciously. One of my Twitter buddies said it was called isolation and it happens when people are feeling unwell. I’m glad I’m not the only one that does it.
It makes me feel bad though, because I don’t want to hurt my friends or leave them in the dark. Friends are supposed to help you when you’re going through a hard time. I guess I feel like they might get mad at me or think I’m just being stupid. I don’t really know what my brain is trying to tell me. Now knowing what I do, I want to change it. Instead of hiding my problems and acting like they’re not there, I want to talk them out with my friends and not leave them hanging in the dark. It might make the hard times a little easier, and I think you should challenge yourself to do the same.
