does anyone else feel like you’re always being attacked? like always being picked for something, or getting picked at. i don’t know how to explain it lol i feel like maybe i’m just overthinking it, but it’s hard to tell.

      I think struggling with mental illness can affect our perception of things because our nervous systems are on overdrive. I know for me personally with my social anxiety and PTSD, etc., I am hyper aware of the people around me, I read body language and facial expressions wrong, I'm triggered easily, and I read way more into things than I should. It can feel like everyone around me is judging me and thinking I'm stupid, etc. when in reality, I'm reading their minds and projecting my feelings onto them. I'm not sure what advice to give since I'm still learning to differentiate between what is factual and what is my overactive nervous system, but I do think this is something that is not understood by a lot of people, especially those who don't struggle with mental illness. Trauma can literally rewire our nervous systems to keep us safe from future threats. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm discrediting your experience, though. ❤️ It is possible that you are picked on more, and I'm sorry you have to go through that.
