It's okay to not be okay
Having friendship/relationship problems happen every year definitely took a toll on my selfesteem and mental health. I became withdrawn, isolated and depressed. I began to selfharm when I was 12; nothing too dangerous but it still wasn't a healthy habit. A passion of mine has always been to help others feeling this way, but I could never understand how I could help someone if I too needed the same help. I felt stupid for needing help because in reality, my life isn't that bad. I have a roof over my head, I am provided with food and clothes, yet here I was feeling like I'd rather die than continue breathing. When I contacted eHeadspace I learned that is it okay to reach out for help if you are struggling. All of the people I've spoken to through eHeadspace have all provided different aspects to help me overcome these bad thoughts and behavours. I still have a long way to go on this journey but I trust that I can make it through. Thank you eHeadspace for being there when no one else was.
