I was surfing the internet one night and found this post on a blog by Chris Degenaars’ blog Thought Catalog 10-26-18
This is For The Ones Fighting Silent Battles
This one is for everyone trying their best to heal from things they don’t speak about.
This one is for those fihting their battles is silence, no matter the reason.
For every blog I have published and every demon I have faced, I still sit in silence trying to fight the good fight, trying to heal from thingsI dont speak about. I know that feeling of sitting in silence, sitting in silence like everything is okay even though you feel like you’re dying.
It is a scary place to be, fighting, healing from something that has caused you so much pain. Waking up every morning to fight the exact same demons that left you so exhausted the night before, and doing it all alone.
Maybe you have a friend or family member who’s there for you that you can turn to them, but they will never understand the pain you are in or the never-ending battle you fight every single day.
And so you stay silent, doing your absolute best to heal from the thing that has brought you so much pain. And every morning you wake up and try your best to continue to fight, to continue to heal from something no one even knows you are dealing with.
It’s the loneliest feeling in the world, I know. Trying to heal, trying so fucking hard to keep healing from something that nobody even knows you are hurting from.
Sitting in meetings, taking phone calls, talking to people and acting like you haven’t been tirelessly fighting to heal.
This blog is for you, so you know you are not alone in this silent battle.
This blog is for you, so you know you are not the only one trying your best to heal from things you don’t speak about.
It may feel like it, but you are not alone.
When I read this, I knew I had to share it.
