EMPTY IS HEAVY
Imagine feeling nothing at all, you’re not scared, happy, sad, mad, you’re just numb. Nothing seems to matter anymore, its like you’re paused but the worlds just rushes on, like you’re stuck in an empty place where nothing makes sense anymore, and everyone else is just pushing and pulling on you. This is a part of depression. Its not always being sad, its also worse, being numb and not feeling a thing. If someone is depressed and you try to help them, don’t get mad if they don’t take your advice, don’t tell them they are just stubborn, appreciate the fact that they are trying to get through the day, that they still try even if it may not seem like it to you, because they are. Its exhausting not feeling a thing, you just want to rest and wake up when you feel something again, you can’t work with nothing, so how are you supposed to do something when you don’t even know whats right? When we feel empty, we need support when we ask for it, but also space to rest and make up our minds, all on our own terms. Be there for them, let them know that you care and that the moment will pass, hold their hand so they can lean on you when they want to, but don’t pull on them when they are not ready to stand up yet. When we feel empty, we are already confused about ourselves, we are already in war about what we should do to get back up again, don’t make us feel more worthless than we already do, just be there and let us heal.
