I don’t know about you, but when I’m not feeling so good, or feeling low, emotional or alone, I just want to hide from the world and everyone in it. The last thing I want to do is run to someone for help, I prefer to be on my own, and cope with whatever I face by myself.

I know I don’t ever need to face anything on my own, as God is always with me, and will always help me. But when it comes to interacting with the world and the people in it, sometimes I just don’t want to, especially when it feels like no-one even notices when I’m not around.

At those times, that’s when I do run to God, because He’s the only one who truly knows and understand me, and how I feel. He gives me peace and hides me under His wings.

Hide Myself by Michael W Smith

I’ve heard the thunder before
I’m not a stranger to storms
Even in the flood
I can always run
To where You are

I’ve had to wait in the dark
And hold the truth in my heart
Even in the night
Still You open wide
Your faithful arms

And I hide myself
Where I find my help
And I hide myself
I find only rest
Find only peace
Beneath Your wings

You are the refuge that stands
You hold my world in Your hands
The quiet in the noise
The stillness of Your voice
Will be enough

And I hide myself
Where I find my help
And I hide myself
I find only rest
I find only peace

And I hide myself
Where I find my help
And I hide myself
I find only rest
Find only peace
Beneath Your wings

And it’s Your presence alone
That changes all that I know
‘Til all that I know
Is just Your presence alone
I’m safe in Your shadow

And I hide myself
Where I find my help
And I hide myself
I find only rest
I find only peace

And I hide myself
Where I find my help
And I hide myself
I find only rest
Find only peace
Beneath Your wings

Even in the flood
I can always run
To where You are

    I totally get what you’re saying. Your feeling low so want company but you still don’t want to have to interact anyone as you feel too fragile. I feel for you, but also want to thank you for your honesty. Too many of us don’t share with anyone about our mental health, but its amazing how many can relate when we do share.

      I’m not one for being particularly open about my feeling in public, however I do find it easily to ‘talk’ about them in a non verbal way. I just hope that people reading this who have never struggled with their own feelings or emotions, realise that just because someone says they’re ok, does not mean they really are! Press them to give you an honest answer, because they probably are in need of comfort, reassurance or even just a hug, but they’re never likely to actually ask.
