Conquering Emotions One Playlist at a Time- Unwell

Everybody wants to feel validated, to feel heard, and to feel understood. Especially in the midst of difficulty. Sometimes that difficulty is with an experience, and other times that difficulty is with our emotions. 
 
Often it is helpful to know that we are not alone in the way we feel. That we are not the only one who fights with depression or anxiety or anger or whatever other challenges we may face. Sometimes there is comfort and support found in others who just seem to get us. 
 
People want to be accepted, and not judged by others for the things they struggle with. They need people in their lives to support them, be patient with them, and stand by them every step of the way. It’s difficult for those who don’t experience it to understand or to know how to help, but sometimes just showing unconditional love and support is all that is needed. 
 
This week’s song is “Unwell” by Matchbox 20. It validates those who experience depression and anxiety, and it reminds us that though we may sometimes struggle and seem to spiral out of control, that we can find ourselves again. And it can be easier to overcome if our loved ones are patiently there in our time of need. If you know someone who is struggling, don’t give up on them because you may be just what they need to get through their difficult time.

LYRICS
All day staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something
Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
And I don't know why
But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be, me
I'm talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
And I know, I know they've all been talking about me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow I've lost my mind
But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
I've been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away
But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be
Hey, how I used to be
How I used to be
Well, I'm just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be
I'm just a little unwell
