Feel Better Today: Open Up About Your Feelings

Every single person in the world has days where they don’t feel 100%. Some people have weeks of it. In some cases, this is depression, and it can be quite serious. After all, you can’t just flip a switch and feel better. You can watch as many fluffy puppy videos on Facebook as you want; that feeling of hopelessness still stays, because it’s about an imbalance of chemicals in your brain.

You should never feel ashamed if you feel depressed, or if you’re simply having a low couple of days. Sometimes, this is a good opportunity to take a mental health day off work, to spend some time looking after yourself, even for just wrapping yourself up like a sushi roll and binging on Netflix. However, if you want to feel better, opening up about your feelings is a good idea. Whether you think it’s going to help or not in the long run doesn’t matter right now; simply trying it and letting somebody know what’s going on with you is important.

People Want To Help You
The first thing you need to realize is that people want to help you. Your friends and family care more about you than you know, even though it may seem like they don’t. Feeling low can distort things and make you see the world differently, but always try to remember that the people close to you would be happy to help you if you asked for it. Why not message a friend and ask if they are free to talk? Open up a dialogue with a partner or parent? Letting somebody know that you don’t feel OK is more than OK.

There’s A Light At The End Of The Tunnel
It’s important to remember that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes, dark days can make us feel like there’s no way out. This can result in irrational feelings and decisions; permanent solutions to temporary problems. Going to a counselling session might seem scary or useless, but it could very well be a step you take to organizing your feelings and thoughts and eventually feeling like you again.

Never Suffer In Silence
It’s not always possible to cope with your feelings and worries alone. If you try to keep them to yourself you’ll end up living in your own head; this can be like a prison sometimes. By simply saying out loud what’s bothering you to a professional or a friend, you should feel better. If you struggle to open up about your feelings, it could be worth going to see somebody you don’t know, such as a therapist or psychiatrist. They will not judge you, and are trained in this kind of thing.

We all deserve to live happy, positive, fulfilled lives. Sometimes, we may feel lost and alone, and that’s totally normal. People have fought those feelings and come out of the other end time and time again. You can too. Take a duvet day, speak to somebody you love, and start focusing on the positive today!
