Struggling Activist And Feeling Helpless

if you are struggling with your mental health, please try to let go of any guilt that you feel for not involving yourself in activism you care about.  You should be your main priority when you are struggling or when you are sick.  You cannot help anyone else if you are not looking after yourself, it is never too late to start so you can take your time.   And to those who watch from the outside, who see a lazy, uncaring, unempathetic person, it isn’t as simple as that.  People who you would expect to care may also be working through some heavy stuff, and it may be time to practice some compassion.
