Mental health is a very important topic for discussion. A lot of people go through mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, etc. Many of these people feel alone most of the time, but reaching out to ask your friends how they’re doing can definitely make people feel a little less lonely and feel cared about. When someone opens up to you about their mental health disorder, the worst thing you could do is talk about yourself, or compare them with people who have it worse, because you could never know how someone feels and what is going through their head. NEVER. Even if you think you know. There is no right or wrong way to feel. You can’t put someone in that position. If your friends are going through a difficult phase, be there for them. Imagine what your friend could be thinking if he/she had accepted the fact that they think no one is there for them and that they are alone.
If you yourself are feeling lonely, know that eventually there will be at least one person who listens to you, understands you, and tries to help you. Mental health disorders can make you do things like push away the people closest to you. In my opinion, I believe that when someone tries to push you away, instead of leaving, you should try to understand them, especially if you know what’s going on. Getting mad at them is never going to solve anything, mostly for them. You are not alone.
