One of my high school friends last night posted on Facebook that she was tired of the depression and anxiety she was feeling. Once I read that, I felt like I should reach out to her. Even though I am not at my best right now, I am getting my mental problems under control. However, there is a lot stopping me from talking to her.
I have not talked to this girl probably since graduation. And while we were close, we were not best friends. Our relationship was kind of up and down for no particular reason.
To reach out to her would mean that I would have to admit that I have mental problems. That is something people do not know about me. Except for my two friends that found out by accident, nobody else knows about my messed up brain. If I was to reach out to her, I would do it through a private message rather than comment on the post. I just do not know what is right in this situation. I would love to help but were just in different places (physically) and have been for years. Would she even accept what I had to say, if I was willing to be vocal about my problems?
