“It’s OK to not be OK” is the line from Stranger Things that got to me. What isn’t Ok is when you are afraid to talk about it. Sure, it may make sense since a lot of people don’t understand what you’re going through and say a lot of stupid stuff topped off with judging you. It happens no matter what the circumstances are. You do have to be selective about whom you decide to open up to. A close friend, a professional, or people in your family, usually can be trusted. Above listening to you, they can offer you support, and a lot of the time, they will seek ways to help you find a way out of the darkness you’re in.
Strangers and people you aren’t really close to, tend to not listen very well and offer very little help for you. Trying to open up to them, will tend to leave you shutting down with the ones in your life that have your back.
