Here's your Christian Thought for the day:
One of the Devil's greatest weapons is Isolation. You are tricked into thinking that you are alone, no one else has nor would understand the problems you have, and if you reached out or told someone, you would be treated with revulsion or judgment. In this way, you are kept in a state of unhappiness, both because of the things you know, deep down, you need help for, and because you feel like you're alone in them.
It's a shocking and very releasing thing to finally admit something, and hear someone else say "I thought I was the only one."
Despite what you or anyone else tells you, you are worth the effort related to your problems. It's okay to reach out and reveal those problems, and it's just as okay afterwards to let others share that load with you a little bit.
Of course, on the flip side of this, the person you choose to trust and open yourself to could actually reveal themselves to be not worth trusting at all, and have the exact reaction you're afraid of (for reference: Jamie and Josef, featured in Chapter 6). In which case, if someone tells you who they are, believe them. I swear that there are people in the world that will genuinely care for you and who deserve your trust. Sometimes they're difficult to find, but they exist. Find them.
THAT'S THE END OF THAT THOUGHT.
