You Are NOT Alone!

Have you ever felt like you are the only person in the world going through a tough time? You look around. Everyone else seems to have it together. You don’t. You don’t understand it. “Why me?” “Why am I the ONLY one in the world hurting?” “Why did God allow this to happen to me?” “Why can’t I be normal?”

Well, none of us have it all together. All of us hurt and feel pain.

I have felt that way on several occasions and it’s not a good feeling.

Maybe you feel like you are the only one that has a health problem, a mental illness, or an addiction.

Many people in the world suffer each and every day.

Most of us will feel the pain of some of the following at one time or another during our lifetime…

  • Anxiety
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Fears
  • Depression
  • PTSD
  • Autism
  • ODD
  • Loneliness
  • Anger
  • Diseases – too many to mention
  • ADHD
  • ADD
  • Eating Disorders
  • Addiction
  • Divorce
  • Debt
  • Sleeping disorder
  • Grief
  • Mood disorders
  • Guilt
  • Homelessness
  • Stress
  • Abandonment
  • Dementia
  • Phobia
  • Hopelessness
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Family problems

These are just a few of the things we can face every day.

Being abnormal is normal!

According to Semantic Scholar (www.semanticscolar.org) there are reasons why we have these issues. They may be biological, psychological or sociocultural. See table below.

I’m here to let you know that there is help available.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help whether from a reliable friend or a professional.

Don NOT be ashamed of yourself as you face these difficulties.

We are all human.

I rely on my Higher Power, my husband and my family when I face difficult times. I have also relied on professional help in the past.

I have a daily devotion I read each day. I encourage you to check out Pastor Rick Warren (www.pastorrick.com) or use any other daily encouragement you prefer.

If I can encourage you today with one thing, I would tell you that if you feel all alone and feel like you can’t take anymore…

Tie a knot in the end of the rope and hang on! HELP IS ON THE WAY!

God loves you! Maybe you don’t believe in God. That’s OK. Test the waters. Check things out. Search for answers. Seek guidance.

STAY STRONG! YOU’VE GOT THIS!
