People cannot read minds.
It would be cool if they did, and maybe a bit creepy if they read your mind. But it can’t happen.
So don’t be mad at someone if they can’t see that your “I’m doing ok” is actually a bold-faced lie.
Telling people that you’re okay when you’re not is the decision you make.
People can’t read minds. They don’t know what’s going on until you tell them.
Don’t expect someone to read you like airport security.
If you’re drowning,
When someone is drowning you don’t hear them silently going under the waves. They scream their lungs out trying to get help, trying to get someone’s attention.
To get a life preserver thrown at them.
You can’t expect someone to throw a life preserver out at you when you’re not even screaming for help.
It’s not lame asking for help.
Is it weak caring about yourself and your well-being? Hell no.
Personally, I don’t like asking people for help. Because I feel like I’m bothering them.
But I 100% believe that your friends, loved ones, etc. want you to go to them about your problems instead of watching you silently suffering.
And if you don’t completely trust someone with your problems, don’t tell them.
But if the reason you’re not telling them is because you’re scared- don’t be.
If they love you, they won’t judge you or feel bothered.
Violently scream like a little kid in the movies when they see a ghost.
Scream for that life preserver.
Because no one was born with the ability to read minds.
Over the past few days, I’ve reached out to people and I never realized I’ve always had some amazing life preservers.
