How often do you sit at home and wish someone would ring? How often do you have a night out or arranged coffee with friends and suddenly "these 4 walls" seem the only safe haven because it's the only place you don't have to pretend you are ok, so you cancel. Or when you are invited out you tell them how terribly sorry you are but you're already booked up that weekend, when you are actually just really busy holding it together in your safe box. And so the first problem starts, all by itself , people stop asking you and the isolation that at first wasn't true becomes your truth.
Please don't give up on your friends, ring them, go around, even when they don't want you too, because they really do they just don't know how to say it. #dontstopcaring #stayaware #mentalhealthawareness
