Are you feeling depressed, anxious, overwhelmed? If you are anything like me, your first instinct is to close yourself off to everyone. I’ve leaned that’s not the right instinct. We all need to talk about it.
Call a trusted friend or family member and talk it out. Ask for support from friends and family via text if voice-to-voice contact feels like too much. Ask them to check in with you via text daily/weekly. Whatever you need.
When I was going through a difficult time in my life. My instincts was to shut down and deal only with the bare necessities. After speaking with my doctor, she asked me to connect with my best friend at least once a day and to have her check in with me on a regular basis. It did help a lot to share my woes with someone who wouldn’t judge me or the situation.
