Mental Health Check: Who am I?

who-am-i

Sometimes I wonder if life is moving on without me. I am being left behind. I don’t fit in with the crowd. I don’t feel comfortable in my own skin. I am not a happy camper. I fight with things other people do with relative ease. In fact, it feels like life is a constant struggle. Things don’t go as planned. To cope, I have learned to fake it. I smile and laugh as I go through each day. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

There is a war going on inside my head. I am confused. It feels like bad luck is my best friend. It seems like misfortune follows me and shows up right on time. It hinders my progress. Something always gets in the way. The “good” news is I have learned to deal with it. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

I take two steps forward, and then circumstances cause me to take three steps back. Do the math: I am not getting very far. I am the quintessential hamster running on a wheel. I go round and round without making any progress. I am tired of running, but I keep moving anyway. I don’t know any other way. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

I see others who are “happy”. Maybe things come easy for them. They sure as hell don’t come easy for me. I try hard, very hard. I work hard, very hard. When will my effort and hard work pay off? Maybe it’s time to stop working. I deserve to take it easy so that’s what I’ll do. I’ll just take things one day at a time and “enjoy” life. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

My mind sends me mixed messages. Sometimes it says I will not amount to anything. It says: “Why try? You won’t succeed. You will get the same sorry result you got the last time.” Other times my mind says something different. It says: “Try your luck. Maybe this time will be different.” So I try again because I can still put forth an effort. On the surface, it looks like everything is fine. But it’s not. I need a mental health check.

Who am I?

I am your mother. I am your sister. I am your daughter. I am your wife. I am your grandmother. I am your aunt. I am your niece. I am your cousin.

I am your father. I am your brother. I am your son. I am your husband. I am your grandfather. I am your uncle. I am your nephew.

I am your friend. I am your associate. I am your coworker. I am your employee. I am your boss. I am your customer. I am your neighbor.

Who am I?

I live a double life. My mental health, attitude, and self-esteem is an important issue. This is why you should check on me as often as possible. Do not assume that I am doing well just because it looks like I am doing well. I could be hiding something. Sometimes the only “cure” is to hear from you. Maybe I need to talk to you. Even better, maybe I need to see you. Please take a moment to reach out to me.

Who am I?

I am anybody, somebody, definitely not nobody, and hopefully not everybody.

I need a mental health check.
