Is it too much to want a better future for myself? Don’t I deserve what other people have? What about ME? What’s wrong with ME? When will this end? Why can’t I be happy, even for just a little while?

Is it just me, or is life really difficult? I don’t mean just now and then, but all the time, hard. It’s like there is no end to the misery and you ask yourself if the constant struggle is worth the effort.

I can only speak for myself here, but if you are reading this, then you too have had the feelings of helplessness and despair. The intellectuals tell us that “this too shall pass” but they really have no idea what it is like to wake up every morning and feel like there is nothing to look forward to and nothing to bring a smile to your face or soul.

One of the hardest parts is that society seems to take difficult times for granted and expect everyone to “just get over it”. If it was that easy, then we wouldn’t have the suicide rates we have or the need for so many mental health facilities or professionals. Life is challenging for everyone, I get that, but as individuals, these challenges manifest in very different ways and there is no ONE way to “make it”. I love the term “Fake it till you Make it”. It seems like I have spent most of my life using that philosophy, but I still haven’t “made it”.

In this series of blogs, I hope to reach out to you who are feeling lost and alone and struggling to put one foot in front of the other, or maybe know or care for someone who feels this way. I hope to give some insights into how I am breaking free from the darkness to create a better future. So please keep your eye out for my next post.

Please feel free to contact me and ask any questions you may have. I hope you will feel safe in reaching out to me, because I know how hard it is to explain your feelings to most people. Give me a chance to help.
