I Am Too Busy To Exercise

When Your Loved One Is Self-Sabatoging and in Denial

When you are struggling with depression you build giant walls around yourself which make even getting out of bed an impossible feat each and every day. These walls are not fake, or invisible, they are very much real and the hurdle to overcome them is very much real and a daily feat.

It does frustrate me regularly.

What I try to do is regularly point out the benefits of speaking with a professional.

Being a friend to a person in this state can be really hard to do and sometimes, but it is better the give them space, rather than trying to propel them into something they are not ready for.

Create boundaries, let them know that you are there for them, but it hurts you to hear about their problem continually without them taking matters into their own hands.

I write about issues that are near and dear to my heart, with the hope that my stories, experiences, and struggles may empower others: amanlitt.ca
