As someone who intentionally engages with mental health issues, I have developed an unrealistic expectation for myself: to always be good. It often feels re-enforced by people who depend on me for one or other reason: "If you aren't good, what's going to happen to us?" When times of difficulty come, it feels like this should not be happening; like "I should know better". But the reality of things is that sometimes it gets difficult for all of us. In the midst of these emotions, I decided to journal. In this episode is that entry.
Enjoy the episode.
