Why We Ignore Our Own Cries For Help

Wednesday, January 22, 2020

From a young age, many children are taught that crying is a bad or unhelpful thing. We’re taught this, to toughen us up to their dangers of the world. In some ways, you can see why the older generation may have done this. They went through very turbulent times both politically and economically. However, the more we understand about mental health, the more we should turn our back on this way of thinking. It can lead to one of the most unhelpful things of all; ignoring your own cries for support. You may have this trait in your personality but you’re most likely completely unaware of it. Here are a few ways how you could be self-regulating your cries for help.

Convincing yourself you’re fine

Unfortunately, it's quite common for people to feel ashamed of their weaknesses. When you feel you’re weaker than those around you, feeling unworthy of help is a mental passage you begin to walk down. You convince yourself that there’s something specifically wrong with you. Everyone else around you seems to be loving life and enjoying every day. It can feel incredibly lonely when you feel like you’re the only one with anxiety, depression and other mental disorders. However, studies show that 1 in 5 adults will go through some sort of mental disorder in their lives. That statistic doesn’t seem powerful at the time when you’re surrounded by people, who you’re afraid to confess to. So we convince ourselves that even if we did acknowledge our problem, it would be a burden unto others. It's normal to have deep psychological fissures. Don’t be afraid to speak to a professional or confide with someone close to you.

Being whisked away

When we feel there’s no one to talk to, we just want to escape. We want to dig a hole in the ground, lie in it and cover it with leaves. We don’t want anyone to notice our pain. This can lead us to things like substance abuse. Being whisked away, far from your problems is such an alluring proposition, it's difficult to resist sometimes. But you cannot let this be your solution. In the end, this will do you more harm than good and when you return from an experience, the same issues will be there. Confronting your self-abuse issue is the first step to standing tall and challenging the ghouls that haunt you. Speak to a heroin detox center who can help you with any withdrawal pains. They provide excellent individual therapy so you can openly talk about your darkest thoughts and the things that hurt you the most.

No one can relate

Who would understand you? That’s a question we spray paint on a mental wall, which blocks us from asking for help. You convince yourself that even if you did open up, no one would fully understand your troubles anyway. So what’s the point? This is so untrue, there are almost 8 billion people in the world, someone is going through exactly what you are. Take a chance and reach out to someone, anyone, and talk about your concerns.

Mental health is such an incredibly moving subject for millions of people. When you have gone through very troubling times and came out the other side, you will feel like another person. Don’t listen to your ‘I’m all right’ voice anymore and do something about your health.
