Sometimes, when we experience deep emotions, we can feel alone. We may believe that nobody else in our life could be going through the same thing, assuming that no one else would understand or share our emotions. As a result, we often dismiss or downplay our feelings, considering them as "silly" or "invalid." However, it's crucial to remember that you are not alone in what you're going through. There are people who are facing similar challenges, and it's essential to acknowledge and process our emotions. All feelings are valid and significant.
To help you when you're feeling alone with your emotions, we have compiled a list of important reminders. Rather than trying to work around your feelings, it's essential to work through them. We hope this list brings you comfort, knowing that you are never alone, your emotions are always valid, and you are enough.
- Your emotions are valid, even if you're unsure of what you're feeling.
- Your emotions are valid, even if you experience multiple emotions simultaneously – it's possible to feel both depressed and cheerful, or extroverted and lonely.
- You are allowed to feel the way you feel – embrace your emotions and establish your emotional boundaries.
- Your emotions are valid, even if someone else has experienced something "worse."
- Your emotions are valid, even if someone else has gone through the same experience but doesn't feel affected by it.
- Your emotions are valid, even if the event occurred a long time ago – regardless of time, the emotion remains valid.
