What is my obligation when everything I tried failed? I don’t have any more fight left in me for mental health battles. Nobody knows how bad it is and I’m not about to tell them, they probably don’t think everything’s fine and I’m keeping it that way. I spend a lot of time out with people having a great time, going to community events, play dates with the kids. People who say “just be busy and distract yourself”must never have fought these battles. Someone died in my community today and my first thought was she’s kind of lucky. I’m out of things to try, I won’t get better, it’s a matter of time.
Klal Yisroel in general and women specifically are compared to the moon. The moon has times that it is bright and lights up the night, but other times we can’t even see it. Even at times when everything looks dark like a blacked out moon, we know that things are going to get better. Rosh Chodesh is a day we celebrate, because even when things are very dark we know that they will improve. I am sure you can remember other times that you felt down and out in the past, but that past and things got better, so too, this time tings will also improve and you will feel better about yourself and life.
You’ll get past it, and keep up the good work!!
When we can’t see it
