Suffering is something we either do with diligence, or do it without. It is based on mental and/or physical pain and can be mild, or intolerable. The intensity of our suffering, will also depend on the duration and frequency of its occurrence. No matter your suffering, it is important you let someone know how you feel.
Suffering happens. Burying how we feel in the hope that what we’re suffering with, will go away but it doesn’t help. It goes away when we deal with the issue. Don’t let what you’re suffering with, or what you’re feeling go underground.
Many people in the world today suffer in silence through mental illness. We’re living secret lives around anxiety, depression, and social phobias, and other debilitating psychiatric conditions. For those of us who struggle with talking about how we feel are not living our lives on our own terms.
Suffering in silence, reinforces your symptoms, a resistance and creates persistence. Suffering without finding a voice, highlights your isolation and creates stigma. It stops you from healing or clearing negative thoughts. It delays treatment and will prolong suffering.
Finding a voice is the only way to work through the stigma and the only way you will heal. It is important you talk about how you feel.
