Have you ever felt dead inside? Like no matter what's going on, there is the empty filling in the pit of your stomach.
It's in the back of your mind until suddenly a sense of dread comes over you.
You try to ignore and move on with your life, but it keeps coming back to the surface, in your thoughts, your dreams until you can no longer put the feeling aside.
I don't know why I am feeling this way
Have you ever felt dead inside? You don't even know why you have this feeling. Everything in your life is beautiful; you have a good job, good friends, and family. I wish I were you.
That's what they will tell you when you try to say you don't feel like waking up anymore; it takes all of your energy to put on a presentable face,
you work so hard to push this feeling down in the most bottomless pits of yourself to survive or appear normal. I want to be normal.
Have you ever felt dead inside? You start to agree with those around you.
You have a good life; you are one of the lucky ones, you need to put your chin up, man up, and let go of the negativity.
Maybe you should pray more? Have you put your faith in God recently? You're just sick in mind but, He will wash away those wicked feelings you have. Try mediation or yoga.
You don't need to be on medication. You are just fine, won't you please say you're okay?
I am not okay.
Have you ever felt dead inside? I know what it's like to have the whole world giving you advice, telling you that it's easy to get over it. I wish it were easy to get over it.
I can remember a time driving down the road and thinking, why do I feel so alone and empty. My life is excellent, I am okay, and just like they tell me I am fine.
Until I wasn't and realized that you could only push down these feelings for so long until eventually, they erupt.
Over time it becomes harder to ignore the pain you have felt, and you have to decide if it will take over you or if you will finally stop listening to the lies of others and get help.
It is okay not to be okay.
Do you ever feel dead inside? I know I do.
