Loneliness is one of the hardest things I’ve had to fight through lately, it’s made harder by the fact that it’s often irrational. I have family and friends that are always there for me (within reason) and I know a lot of people going through these issues don’t have that support. For this I am lucky but the problem still remains, I feel lonely. Feeling alone and isolated in a room full of people is a weird experience, withdrawing from people and isolating yourself when you already feel lonely seems counterintuitive. Herein lies the problem with these mental health sicknesses, they are not rational, they distort our view of reality and that’s why they are so dangerous and hard to overcome. Waking up in my apartment where it is only me is still a weird and uncomfortable experience but one I need to come to terms with, sometimes I have to remind myself being alone is ok but when it becomes too much that’s when I need to execute my plans for dealing with the spiral before it gets bad. It’s the constant battle of knowing what I need to do to fix my situation and actually finding the will to do it when I feel terrible. I have to hope that on the bad days as long as I get out of the house, do the right things, go to school and try to be social it can stave off the worst feelings. About the photo, this Arbutus tree stands alone between the ocean and a strip mine, it somehow managed to survive when nothing else did. Stay strong, more to follow. #victoria#bc#beautifulbritishcolumbia#outdoors#camping#photography#yyj#victoriabc#adventures#life#nofilter#hiking#vancouverisland#vanisland#neverstopexploring#landscape#mentalhealth#mentalhealthadvocate
