Many people experience depression or some type of mental illness following their Twin Flame Path.
They could also feel like they are going through or have experienced the dark night of the soul.
I experienced all of the mentioned.
When I was around 16, as you know, I changed lots of classes and high schools.
That was about the time when my depression set in.
Even today, I remember the feeling of darkness while sitting with my parents in a hotel cafe, waiting to take my first medication for depression.
For months I tried to explain to my parents those dark feelings, but they just brushed it off by telling me I must be lazy.
Or that I should just spend more time outside with friends or study more.
I almost failed my last year in high school because of those feelings.
I could not fall asleep at night, and I would barely sleep at all.
I completely lost my ability to concentrate, so I used to drink lots of energy drinks because I thought they´d help me.
There was one night when I drank lots of those drinks, so my heart started beating fast, my palms were sweating…
I thought I was experiencing a heart attack, so I wanted to wake up my parents, who are doctors, from their sleep.
I went to a class and high school where most of the students were high achievers.
I used to be that one too before, so I was stressed out when my studying efforts were not yielding any positive results.
My depression became even worse when I was choosing which college to attend.
At that time I was not being my true self. I tried to act like I was someone different, so I would get accepted among my peers.
I was also not in tune with my feelings, so you can only imagine my difficulties when choosing my future career.
When I had tried to discuss my problems with the elders or with my teachers- they would tell me to have more fun. Because these are people´s best years of life.
Could you imagine how I felt when I heard that last sentence? -My depressed years of high school were supposed to be the best years of my life.
Yeah, maybe for the people who peaked in their high schools. Certainly, I was not one of them.
Adolescence is hard for many people. And as I realized afterward, when I talked to my school principal- everyone was struggling as I did. However, she told me I was the only honest one who had admitted her struggles.
Today I know that admitting your struggles is very brave.
When you reach out for help, for support, you get helped.
Perhaps some people would not comprehend what you are going through.
If you open up, you will see that even your family members, friends, or co-workers went through the same troubles you had experienced.
I personally reached out for help when I was only 17 years old, and that was the bravest decision I had made in my teens.
I struggled a lot with my mental health problems even throughout my 20s.
My Twin Flame path helped me heal my wounds. I received lots of healing from being on this path. I was always perfectly led to my next healing step. And I took it courageously. Even when I had to face my deepest sorrows and fears.
I received psychiatric help, psychological help, clerical help, twin flame help, trauma-related help…
Today, because of my experiences, I can help others on their journeys.
If you are one of those people who are struggling in the silence- you can reach out.
I would be happy to help you. 🙂
