This is a Really Real Mental Health Post.
Sometimes it comes out of nowhere. No real cause, nothing to set it off.
Angry. Grumpy. Frustrated.
Sad. Hurting. Alone.
I feel overwhelmed but nothing and everything is the cause.
I’m just sitting here, and I was fine, but now I’m not.
And my reaction is to withdraw, crawl inside of myself, close the world out, don’t let anyone in. I’m alone and I want to be more alone.
I want, need, crave connection when I feel like this,
but I don’t know how to ask for it.
My words leave me.
I want to push everyone and everything away, but really I just want to be held tight so that I have something to push against for a little while.
I just need to feel safe enough to be angry at nothing.
Because anger still doesn’t feel safe.
