I am shy, anxious, and social situations leave me cold. What brings you pleasure leaves me so nervous I can’t catch my breath. Panic makes my heart gallop and dizziness drowns me. I don’t mean to be a party pooper and I’m not deliberately being rude, I just struggle to cope with people. Please try and understand. My anxiety is just as real as depression or grief. Don’t judge me too harshly...  #shy #introvert #anxiety #nerves #fear #struggle #compassion #understanding

Being a bitch means I stand up for myself and my beliefs, I stand up for those I love, I speak my mind, think my own thoughts and do things my way. I won’t compromise what’s in my heart. I live my life MY way And I won’t allow anyone to step on me Or try and put me down. I refuse to tolerate injustice, bullying, judgment, abuse; If I see it hatred action, I won’t quietly pass by. I have the courage and the strength to allow myself to be me. So go ahead, try and stomp on me,  Try and douse…

No, you don't know what it's like When nothing feels all right You don't know what it's like To be like me  To be hurt To feel lost To be left out in the dark To be kicked when you're down To feel like you've been pushed around To be on the edge of breaking down And no one's there to save you No, you don't know what it's like Welcome to my life #lyrics #alone #lonely #depression #sadness #breakdown #lost

To Feel Lost

No, you don't know what it's like When nothing feels all right You don't know what it's like To be like me To be hurt To feel lost To be left out in the dark To be kicked when you're down To feel like you've been pushed around To be on the edge of breaking down And no one's there to save you No, you don't know what it's like Welcome to my life #lyrics #alone #lonely #depression #sadness #breakdown #lost

One symptom of PTSD is reliving the trauma - through flashbacks, nightmares, intense distress, physical sensations like pain or nausea. “I feel like I’m straddling a timeline where the past is pulling me in one direction and the present another. I see flashes of images and noises burst through, fear comes out of nowhere… my heart races and my breathing is loud and I no longer know where I am.” #PTSD #anxiety #flashback #nightmare #mental #health http://www.mind.org.uk/

Just because I am sensitive And feel pain deeply, even when it isn’t mine Doesn’t mean that you should taunt me  For fun, or just because you can. I am not as strong as you. I am weak, As tear-able as paper. If you crumple me, My words will disappear And all that I am Will be lost #sadness #depression #pain  #bullying #sensitivity

So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed. What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being…

It isn’t kidding around. My feelings are not a joke.  Bullying isn’t teasing. It’s not just a bit of fun.  It won’t roll off my back.  Words don’t hurt less ten minutes later,  when you are bored. They brand me. Burn me. Sear my mind with despair. An indelible tattoo Marking me as diseased #bullying #SelfHarm #depression
