Everyone has demons that they battle throughout their lives. These demons are different for each and every one of us. And every one of us handles these demons differently. For each of us, these things that we suffer with and through are huge for us, and how we deal with them will determine how we cope, move forward, and how these things ultimately affect us emotionally and physically.
Whether your demons are depression, anxiety, other psychological ailments, physical ailments, or circumstances that are beyond your control, there is help out there.
I know first-hand that these types of circumstances can seem like the end of the world, especially when it seems like there’s no end in sight or like there’s nothing I can do about it.
My plea for anyone who is suffering with their demons – please get help with your problems, regardless if you feel like anything can be done or not. Counseling, suicide hotlines, psychologists, family doctors – there are tons of resources out there for everyone. You just have to seek out the help.
I thought I could battle my own demons on my own. I have had a rough life in my own way and at first I thought I could just handle it, that I was strong enough, that I didn’t need help from anyone. After a while, I decided to seek help – really just to find out if there was something someone can do for me. Now, through help I have received, I know that there is light at the end of the tunnel, I have learned how to process information better – in my own way, and I have let go of things that I haven’t been able to in the past. I am a better person for seeking and receiving help, for working through my own personal issues, and for allowing someone (a professional) in to my inner world to help me.
Robin Williams passed away too soon. He was loved by so many as he made us laugh and cry through his wonderful ability to entertain, through his exceptional talent.
Please, before your demons get the best of you, please seek some help.
