It can be pretty terrifying to have suicidal thoughts because it feels like something you have to hide. The stigma around it makes it difficult to talk to open up, because oftentimes people don’t get it. They dismiss the hopelessness you feel or they want you to go to the hospital.

You constantly feel the pressure. You carry the weight of all the problems: work, family, friends, you name it. You are great at keeping all of these things in, but on the inside you are constantly worried and stressed that you are going to let people down or embarrass yourself. It feels like you are not allowed to make mistakes. Your standards are high and it’s hard for you to experience joy because it never feels enough. We will address your high expectations to make space for compassion.
You often do not find yourself as a person with worth without having to earn it. You constantly have to prove yourself. Like Luisa in Encanto: “I’m pretty sure I’m worthless if I can’t be of service.” You don’t get your needs met because that would require you to inconvenience others. It feels impossible to respect yourself. You dream about being confident in yourself.
