Mental health and relationships
I wrote this short poem while reflecting on a time when I kept putting the needs of those who I cared about before my own. When it comes to the people we love and care about the most, it becomes more difficult to open up about how we are truly feeling. I did not want my feelings to become another thing people had to worry about, I didn’t want to burden them with my problems. Soon I began to realize that that thought process was just not healthy, and the people around us are there for a reason, because they care about our feelings, and want to be there to support us.
