Burden

This is a Really Real Mental Health Post.

I feel like a burden,

A load everyone else must carry.

I feel needy.

(Even while she reminds me “You’re not needy. You have needs.” Well, I have too many needs.)

I am too much.

Emotionally I take up a lot of space.

Physically I take up a lot of space.

I am not always self sufficient,

Even with the most basic tasks,

I’m sent into overwhelm so easily and I shut down.

I feel like a burden.

A load everyone else must carry.

I feel needy.

I am too much.

But even while feeling like a burden,

I still need help.

One thought on “Burden

  1. You are wonderful just as you are:
    Brave for being REAL.
    Beautiful for being TRANSPARENT.
    Strong for PERSEVERING.
    Courageous for seeking HELP.
    TALENTED, LOVEABLE, AND ONE OF A KIND.

    Mental health is a constant reminder that, in the 90 seconds that feelings exist ( each one only lasts 90 seconds without us stirring up our own suffering)… We grow capable of identifying our truth from lies, and embracing ourselves with gace and self care.
