So I was in a car accident yesterday. I came out physically unscathed, but the emotional trauma will leave a very deep scar forever. I want to talk about this with anyone because it’s the only way I know how to cope, but it’s so difficult to open up about emotional trauma because no one will ever understand. They think I’m just an overreacting, wimpy, weak girl and that I should just get over it. This is probably why people who suffer from mental anguish or illness keep their depressing thoughts to themselves and have no one to reach out to. Others treat them with judgment, scrutiny, or pity. It’s a shame when these are the people who really need attention.
