Everybody gets down. Sometimes it’s a brief wade in the shallow end of the self pity pool. And sometimes it’s more serious. It’s okay to cry at an occasional Hallmark commercial. But if you’re also crying during those annoying Gizmo commercials it may be time to reach out.
Don’t underestimate the importance of emotional health. And don’t feel it’s something you should be able to figure out for yourself. Use MBC’s Counseling and Psychological Services. Talk to an RA or a friend. Take the TestWell Wellness Inventory and get a better understanding of all your different emotions and where you’re coming from. You can even talk to your regular doctor, and they can steer you towards more help. Just don’t stop talking until you get what you need.
