Sometimes it can seem lonely when your life feels like a constant uphill battle compared to those around you, and you’re dealing with constant pain. Sometimes it can become quite overwhelming. What makes it harder is that we often don’t want to honestly share the journey we’re on – the pain we’re feeling or the struggles we’re having. We have to stop ourselves from spiralling too far down when we start to think like this. There are people out there who have our back. Making ourselves vulnerable, especially to those who support us and who are there with us through the thick and thin, can help us grow stronger. And, who knows, it may even help someone else who’s going through pain in their own lives. We are not alone.
