There is no normal
By Sometimes it's hard on April 11, 2014
One of the biggest things depression took away from me is my ability to trust myself and my own feelings.That bitch.I've known this for a while, but when I was talking to a friend the other day I realized how insidious the language we use to talk to each other (and ourselves) can be."I worry a lot about other people, is that normal?""I resent my kids sometimes, is that normal?""I lose my temper when my kids are whining and yelling at me, is that normal?""I feel tired, like I need a break, and I don't want to do aaaaaaanything, is that normal?""Wait, are other people worried about these things.
