Hey lovelies 💕,
This is just so true. Some people when they have a bad day easily say oh “I’m so depressed”. Others say way too soon to others when they are dealing with mood swings “Oh you are acting so bipolar”. I saw bloggers on Tumblr even posting pictures when they self harm and pictures of how depression makes them more creative and all this bullshit.
I’m so done with that. There is nothing beautiful about having a mental illness. There’s nothing beautiful to want to die. There’s nothing beautiful to be anxious all the time. There’s nothing beautiful in self harming. Suffering from anxiety myself I don’t like it when I feel anxious, nauseous, not having control of my body and when I’m crying all the time. It’s just the worst feeling ever.
Everybody can feel nervous or sad at one point in their lives. That’s normal in life. When you feel anxious, depressed for a long period of time and this doesn’t seem to go away then it’s more than just being nervous. It’s a mental illness when this is affecting your life in all areas and you just can’t seem to be happy and live your life.
So please, stop romantizing mental illness. I don’t follow depressing accounts because it just isn’t helping my anxiety. It’s making it worse. I love the inspiring instagrams and blogs. I love how it makes me feel connected and I love to know that I’m not alone.
Thanks to the mental health community online I feel even more supportive. It’s just makes me so happy all those postcasts, blogs and posts with advice and positive vibes! 💜💫 Keep up the good work! Love you all! 💕
