I’m having a hard time today. I mentioned it on Twitter but that seems too transient a platform to rely on for helping others feel less alone when they need it. So, this very brief post will just have a list of thoughts going through my head right now.
- It is not a character flaw to be unable to function due to a mental illness/disorder, to “can’t” as I sometimes refer to this.
- It is OK to can’t.
- There are probably people you care about that are can’ting right now.
- I am can’ting right now.
- Despite how it may feel, can’ters are not alone.
- I am safe.
If you can’t, please know that you are still worthy of love and compassion and that the world is better with you in it.
