I don’t know why I’m still here

I feel hopeless and alone. I don’t see this changing. I’m tired of people expecting so much. I don’t feel understood or validated and I’m not sure that matters.

  1. It’s so difficult when others expect more than we can give. Many people don’t understand what it’s like to live as a trauma survivor and PTSD, as a result, they often invalidate what we are going through. I’ve learned through the years that it’s in my best interest not to seek outside validation. What’s most important is that I validate my own experience for myself. It is not easy – I still seek it from others sometimes. But I’ve learned that hoping for validation only leads to disappointment and my feeling bad about myself. I hope you feel better soon.
