When life's got you down, where do you go? To others for help? Well then, were do they go? I'll tell you where they go...
People who seek help think they have the worst problems, but I believe that it is those who don't who suffer more. Everyone has stress and most have conflict, no matter how much people deny it. However, when people try to dismiss the issues they face, they usually end up shutting everything in. This is a terrible thing to do, as it causes more worry, ignorance, depression, and every other negative emotion you can think of.
This is what I have been doing for years, building up a wall to block everyone from what I was thinking/suppressing. The only problem was that this shield worked in both ways. By concealing my obstacles, my wall prevented me from getting out there and experiencing my life, as it should be. I never took chances, had pride in myself, or cared too much for my well-being, all because I was afraid of making my life more difficult.
Well, I realized what i was doing about a year ago. And since then, or mostly the past few weeks, I have been trying to dismantle my wall, one brick at a time. I can tell it is slowly coming down. I just hope that I have the strength to continue. It was a wall built over many years of experiences, so there is a great deal of bricks. Thankfully my friends are there to lend a hand, even if its from across the state.
Thank you. Lets demolish this wall together, and then move on to yours.
