“You’ve been found guilty by your own consciousness, and you’ll be facing a life sentence in your own mind unless you can prove yourself to be innocent.”
“You’re a catch twenty-two. Win or lose I’m screwed.”
There is no shame in admitting that we, as humans, do not understand our emotions and do not have the tools to control them at all times. Sometimes, we need to call in for back up; call for someone who has spent many years trying to understand why our minds process these types of situations these ways.
There are people want to help you. Whether you know it or not, someone out there values your life and your recovery. You just have to see that you are valuable too.
