Talking about mental health is not attention seeking! People die in silence everyday due to this judgment and then people finally say “I wish they would have said something!”
We live in a society that stigmatizes mental health but mourns suicide!
The axe forgets, but the tree remembers!!
If I could show you how awful you made me feel, you would never look me in the eye again!
Mental health relapses happen! It doesn’t mean all your healing is thrown away! Accept what comes and remember allowing yourself to feel, even the uncomfortable things, is part of the process!
You are not required to set yourself on fire to keep other people warm!
The heart gets confused when it’s constantly told “I love you” by the same people who destroy it!
It’s not an apology:
I’m sorry, but….
I love you…..
Just forget about it…..
You’re being too sensitive…
It’s not my fault you feel that way…..
I didn’t mean it that way….
I will apologize if….
I’m sorry that you….
Let’s just move on….
I don’t know anyone else who would get upset over this…..
I only said that because you….
If you know someone with a mental illness who has stopped showing their struggle, don’t assume it’s because they’ve gotten better!
Sometimes the moment they atop showing it is the moment they’re really getting worse!!
Are you okay??
No, I’m not okay! I am depressed, my life is falling apart, I want to tell someone! I want someone to hug me and tell me honestly that everything is going to be okay! I want to tell someone everything that is hurting and bothering and/or happening to me….
Sure, it’s okay, I’m fine, thanks!
Having anxiety and depression is like being scared and tired at the same time! It’s fear of failing but no desire to be productive! It’s wanting friends but not wanting to go out and socialize!
It’s caring about everything and nothing at the same time! It’s wanting to be alone but not wanting to be lonely!
Don’t be so hard on yourself, you are doing the best that you can!!
Mental illness is not a personal failure!!
Your feelings are valid!!
You deserve to be loved unconditionally!!
You deserve to be happy!!
If all you did was wake up and survive today, you are doing great!
You are enough!!!
What did you do today to make yourself feel good????
