If you aren’t being believed

knownaslonerknownasloner Posts: 48 Boards Initiate
If you’re here you must be feeling like you’re being belittled, ignored, accused of lying/attention-seeking or not taken seriously. Whether that’s by a family member, friend, authority figures, mental health services or anyone else, no one deserves to be cast aside. But I’m here to (hopefully) give you the confidence to not stress about the haters.

Whether you’ve been diagnosed or not, no matter what you’re mental illness may be you deserve support. Unfortunately, there will always be those who don’t support you. But it doesn’t matter if the people around you don’t believe you. After all YOU know the truth, YOU know you’re struggles are significant and valid. Repeat that to yourself. Remember that just because someone says your lying it doesn’t make them right. They’re not you, they‘ll never truly understand the storm you’re facing. 

But there will be people out there who will listen, accept and try to help you. They won’t claim they understand but they’ll help. Until then, keep fighting because there will always be one person who will stand by your side.

    Thank you <3
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "
