How Do I Let My Friends Know That Sometimes I need Help Too?
I am always there for my friends, even during the pandemic. However, recently I have found they are not really there for me. None of them asks how I am, even after I have shared something that has upset me. Sometimes I need a little care, a hug, a little backup, or something to lift me up to. I do not hate being that person for them, but I do hate myself when I am trying to lift a friend in need when I have not dealt with something of my own. I sometimes think the shell I built after my daughters death is so effective, people think I am fine.
