You are Not Alone

“It’s okay not to be okay.” “You are not alone” has become a cliché thing to say to bring awareness among people. But when reality hits, it makes us feel like we are all alone in this. We care so much about our physical health that when something goes wrong, we immediately run to the hospital to get it checked and fixed, whereas when it comes to mental health, we choose to suffer in silence and feel numb about the clichéd statements thrown out, which makes it even worse.

Mental health is the cognitive, behavioral, and emotional well-being of a person. The term is alternatively used for mental disorders. As we know, our mental health can affect every aspect of our lives (social, economic, physical, occupational, academic, etc.). For many years, psychiatric care was ignored or ridiculed for being insane. With the development in different fields, the area of mental health has also enhanced in recent years, spreading the importance and educating people about mental health.

A rough patch, a bad day, a major setback, or sometimes something goes wrong after another. Unexpected challenges or obstacles might hit harder, which leads to stress, worrying, and not knowing what to do about them. When this state persists, it can cause significant changes in mood and behavior.

If you are feeling not okay, here is the message for you:

Never resist when you are feeling bad, lost, unmotivated, or lonely. The truth is, you are not alone. Don’t look around; what is happening around you might make things even worse for you. Even in circumstances where you feel like not wanting to talk to someone, always remember that there is nothing wrong. This phase of not wanting to talk and not knowing what to do doesn’t last forever.

Here are a few things that you can do:

  • Connect with people—family or close friends.
  • Engage in physical activity.
  • Talk or write about how you feel.
  • Consciously take the effort to do things that keep you engaged and like doing them.
  • Listen to music.
  • Challenge the irrational and unhelpful thoughts.
  • Eat healthy and sleep well.
  • Work on breathing and relaxation techniques.
  • Inquire about counseling services or ask someone to direct you to them.
  • Take a break from your responsibilities in your personal and professional lives.
  • Try to do something for someone. Prosocial behaviors can help an individual feel better.
