You never really know how much the people around you are hurting. You could be standing next to someone who is completely broken inside and you wouldn’t even…
All that I am, all that I ever was...
I believe without reservation that the biggest hurdle we face on our journey to recovery is ourselves. Recovery requires self-confidence, self-esteem, self-awareness and self-acceptance. Without this, recovery is not just impossible, it is also not worth it. ~Ron Colemsan
The Truth About Mischa Barton's Breakdown

The only times I could understand forced hospitalization in a mental institution would be if a person was a serious danger to himself or others, or that they are so unwell (i.e. suicidal, psychotic, delusional) they are unable to make their own rational decisions.

“Habits Are First Cobwebs, Then Cables”
HABITS ARE FIRST COBWEBS, THEN CABLES. If we do not nip our bad habits in the bud (so to speak), what started as intricate cobwebs in the beginning can eventually turn into heavy cables weighing us down (burdens)... ultimately resulting in a mental breakdown. We should never allow ourselves to be mastered by habits which bring us away from God. While nothing should master us, there IS someone who should be our master.
What is a Nervous Breakdown?
A nervous breakdown can be seen as a sign that one’s ability to cope with life or a mental illness has been overwhelmed by stress, life events, work or relationship issues. By disconnecting from their regular responsibilities and routines, an individual’s nervous breakdown may allow them to try and regroup their coping skills and temporarily relieve the stress in their life.
