“You are not alone” is one of my favourite mantras. It’s something I so passionately try to express in my writings and it is also why I especially enjoyed making this “gentle reminder”… hoodie for a very special customer last evening.
We all go through our own set of experiences and challenges which can oftentimes leave us feeling isolated, disconnected or alone.
Maybe it’s the overwhelm we experience from the pressure of a new job or becoming a new parent.
Maybe it’s the trauma we are facing from a relentless bully.
Maybe it’s the grief we experience after the loss of a loved one.
Maybe it’s the emotions we go through when we feel like no one truly understands our mental health struggles.
Maybe it’s fearing we are stuck in an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
Maybe your feelings aren’t being validated or your needs aren’t being met by those who are closest to you or maybe you truly believe that no one cares at all.
But the truth is, no matter what challenges you are experiencing right now “you are not alone”. If you just go looking for it you are sure to find many more people out there who can relate to your own challenges or experiences you are going through.
You don’t need to carry your burden all alone.
Support is available. You are not alone.
Ask for help. You are not alone.
Reach out (right now!) to the people in your life you care about and let them know that no matter what, they too are not alone.
And as one final gentle reminder…if you are unable to reach out to those closest to you or someone you trust, help is still available in other ways as well through 24/7 distress lines, your local emergency room, mobile crisis response teams, online forums and more (see full list of resources available below). There is always someone out there for you. You are never alone.
