Does it dawn on you that maybe the sleepless nights you spend overthinking miniscule moments during the day or constantly worrying about the same issue might be part of a bigger concern? Overthinking is normal when something unexpected takes place in your life, but if it prevents you from doing your daily tasks or takes away your mental peace for longer periods of time, you might be dealing with anxiety. Let's tackle these stormy thoughts together!
Going through a mental health challenge can make you feel isolated and afraid, among many other things. I remember feeling this way when I was in a difficult place, and that's when I signed up for a buddy circle at HiO. Although I was scared at first, that changed to relief and a sense of hope. The buddy circle reminded me that I'm not completely alone in my journey; help and company is always an arm's reach away :')
Buddy Circle serves exactly what it promises! I remember being a little nervous about my first session, but as you see people open up one by one and you relate with other's struggles, it feels like you're a part of a community, and you can really understand each other. What I liked about the buddy circle was that it always provides us with a learning strategy, something to take back and implement in your everyday life.
