Those Nights

Anyone’s had those nights where you lay in bed with your hand over your mouth, holding your breath so your sobs aren’t loud for anyone to hear, and then having to pull yourself together to go on about the NEW day as if nothing happened? Cause lately I’ve been having a lot of those and honestly it’s hard pretending to be ok when your just falling apart.

Hi Madi_22,

Now I have lots of support and I don’t always have to put on a brave face. However, just a few months ago, I was in your position. It’s hard, I know. But you don’t have to. It’s okay to be upset. You don’t have to pretend everything’s okay, because if you do that, nobody will ever know what’s going on.

I kept up a brave face for years, and now I am unable to express my negative emotions. All those years of hiding how I felt just took away a part of my humanity. I try to cry, to look upset, to show my parents that something’s not right, but I can’t. And so they say, ‘You don’t look upset.’

I hope there’s some way or someone you can reach out to. You’re not alone, we’re all here for you. I’m thinking of you. Lots of hugs 💖💞
