I found this on Miss Miriam's blog  and think it is worth repeating.

The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.” ~ Daniell Koepke

  1. I agree with the sentiment, however, I think one must be careful that the "struggling" and "too needy" do not become what defines you. Yes, everyone has rough patches, but the people who allow the rough patch to be the shining example of who they are, are typically the ones that you don't want to be around. I'll support my friends through their nadirs just as they support me, but when you become the depressing, Gllomy Gus 100% of the time, then no one wants to be around you.
