Hi Elefante. I hope today you may be feeling a little better. And if not, know you will feel differently than you are. And it wont take months or years. I know when we are in ‘pits’ the end can seem invisible. Just know its there, although perhaps too dark to see right now. I’ve definitely been there, and coming from a toxic family can leave deep wounds that we struggle to heal from. You are not alone, and as much as you may subconsciously tell yourself that you’re in the alone, it’s far from the truth. It’s so easy to forget how strong you are, and to disregard the many times you’ve made it through situations that were big enough to knock you down. Just remember, “I may not be where I want to be, but thank god I’m not where I used to be”. And know, always, that there are people who will be there for you.
TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues. We know what it’s like to feel alone, stressed, worried, sad, and angry. We’ve lived through the ups and downs of self-harm, drugs and alcohol, and the struggle to find help.
