I remember the first time I heard this quote from Mr.Rogers, it’s struck me right away, there is always somebody that can help you.
For the last months I’ve been meeting new people, talking with new friends and creating new connections, all of this thanks to opening up regarding my mental health
I realized not only that there was a lot of people going through the same than me but also that I could help many the same way I was being helped.
So after each therapy session I write down what I learned , new exercises, new tips and when somebody close to me needs then the most I give it to them.
I’ve become in someone that helps others going though the same than me of even worst situations, I am using what used to affect me in benefit to others
My anxiety is no longer my curse, is my base for teaching and helping others.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not “cured” , I still have it in me, still fight my mind everyday, but I can go to bed knowing I helped somebody that needed me like once I needed help too.
So, if you’re going through something hard, look at it as a possibility to learn and teach others about it, don’t look at it as a curse or punishment , you might have inside of you the answer that many have been looking for a long time
Become the helper.
