I’m not complaining, I’m asking for a hug. #compassion #Emotionalsupport #ChronicIllness #Anxiety #JudgementFreeZone #ChronicPain
Those who you spend time with, those who care, those who say they are there for you don’t show up when you need them most. You reach out, you say what you’re going through to family and friends and a lot of times...crickets...
I personally can’t relate to those who choose to ignore, choose to not acknowledge, and choose to not give the support and love that I deserve. How tough is it to say something as simple as “I’m so sorry you’re going through this.”?
I get, it gets old to hear the bitching and complaining. I’ve been on both sides. I know what it’s like to get those crickets and to see the people who I care about the most get even more crickets. What I have experienced to matter the most is to be acknowledged and to be seen.
That is why I have decided to join The Mighty community. To be able to express myself judgement free and not get crickets. I want to be able to do the same for you all and be the person that you know cares. I’d like to exchange crickets for hugs, for comments, for support! I’m acknowledging that WE ALL DESERVE not to have crickets. You have been heard. #nocrickets #acknowledgement #Support #HereForYou #Spoonies
