It’s terrible when the brain malfunctions because it knows everything about you; all your hopes, dreams, and all your fears. It knows exactly what buttons to push to bring you to your knees, sobbing.
With extreme emotional pain, time stops. You feel like you’re in a pocket of everlasting pain. You don’t remember whenever you were well. And you can’t recall that fact that the emotional pain will pass in time. You forget all the things that would help you through.
That’s why it’s so important to have people to support you because they’ll bring you back and help you remember.
