Like whiffing too much perfume until you can't smell anything, too much trauma numbs our emotions until we can't feel anymore. Joy, happiness and excitement abandon us, and we're left with depression, anxiety and fear. The irony is, when we're in our deepest darkness, we crave not to feel anything anymore and want to stop everything. We're left scraped out and hollowed. We need to be restarted and jolted back into the person we used to be, but it's near impossible to do without help.
Ask for the help you need and deserve.
Stay safe everyone, and let's look out for each other.
