Helpless

16/05/2018

here’s a late night thought for you…

Over the past few months or even a year or so it has been brought to light that more and more people my age are feeling depressed and anxious.

These people are my friends and my life and i can’t do anything to help. It breaks my heart to see the people i love most going through a difficult time and not being able to fix it just like that.

Some times you would never be able to tell and other times the emotion is pouring out of their soul, but i’m mainly sad because despite all this going on, mental health is not taken seriously by the government and many people continue to suffer in silence because nothing is ever done.

i wish i could fix things with the snap of my fingers, but i can’t and i’m sorry, broken leaves fall and cloudy sky’s clear making way for happier thoughts.

I just wish there was more i could do…

    Mental health is definitely something we all need to be more aware of so I’m glad you shared this post xx

    It really is heartbreaking and frustrating in equal measure I think when those around you are struggling and when you know so many more people out there also feel alone or are in need of help, and you feel you can’t do anything to help. The fact that you obviously care so very much is more valuable than you may think; just being there for your loved ones and friends will mean a lot to them, being willing to listen. When it comes to the bigger picture with government and such, I think that anything you can do with raising awareness, such as on your blog, is fantastic, and I do little things to make me feel I am doing ‘something’ to help, such as signing petitions I see going around for government (I often get these through Mind, Sane, Beat etc newsletters) or writing to my local MP about a certain issue that’s been in the news or is important to me/someone I know. More does need to be done, you’re absolutely right; hopefully in time things will improve, we’ve just got to have hope… ♥

      thanks for your comment Caz that’s really reassuring, sometimes it’s just so difficult when all you want to do is make it right and all you can do is offer a should to cry on!xxx

Let me know what you thought of this post!
