A mental breakdown is horrible. You’ll find yourself lost and struggling. You’ll lose all interest in hobbies or activities, and the only things you’re likely to do aren’t going to help you become better. You’ll feel helpless. Like your bed is your only solace, and even then, your thoughts never leave you alone. The light at the end of the tunnel seems so far, and it feels like you’ll never reach it.
A mental breakdown is one of the worst things for a person to ever go through, and it will never be great, but it can be an opportunity for change.
When you’re at the lowest point of your life, it also means that you’ll have nowhere to go but up to the person listening to this at their lowest points. Know that this may feel like the worst feeling ever—and it might—but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost. The very fact that you are brave enough to click on this video, that you are brave enough to keep on going—to try, is enough.
One small crack does not mean that you are broken. It just means you should take a breather (or a couple) to settle down. To decide the things you should do next. To be better.
A breakdown happens when we are no longer able to deal with things and when everything feels like it’s too much. But maybe that’s the case. Maybe you’ve been overworking yourself in pursuit of so many things that you’ve forgotten to take care of yourself.
Maybe you’ve been too focused on finishing your work quotas or making the extra income that you’ve forgotten to take a break from everything that’s been wearing you down. Grab that morning coffee you’ve been avoiding because you wanted to cut on expenses.
Buy that cute cat ears headphone you’ve wanted to buy on the internet. Don’t be afraid to reward yourself.
Sometimes a breakdown can also happen when we struggle to untie things and when we struggle to let things go. Maybe our life is in a knot, and we’re confused with what direction to take. Maybe there are things we can’t come to terms with. Maybe we’re dealing with loss and with grief. Chances are, you breaking down is your body, your mind, and your heart telling you that you should do exactly just that. Take a break. Loosen up.
To truly find the good in the worst, first we have to acknowledge the worst in us. Come to terms with our flaws. Cut off all unhealthy friendships and connections that inhibit us from healing.
Stay away from things that have been flooding our heads with thoughts that do not help us become better. This is how we can start to make things better by acknowledging that they are not. Find strength in where we are weak. Reinforce the aspects of life where we feel we are lacking. Change habits that have done nothing but make us feel bad.
The Upsides of Having a Mental Breakdown
And most importantly, never forget that breaking down is not you giving up, but you finding the right time for your true self to breakthrough. You are loved. You are valid. You are worth it.
