What “society” are you referring to? Your high school? A certain section of Tumblr? Not everyone thinks like that.

your right not everyone thinks like that, Most people with depression and suicidal attempts don’t just start that way its a source that the suicide and depression is coming from it isn’t naturally in the air “Society” is a group of opinions and options that make that depression for you. So No its not high school nor tumblr.

What society expects from you isn’t important. The opinions other people have about you aren’t important. You don’t have to be any certain way, or live up to social norms to be happy. The opinions you have about yourself are very important. In short, you’re allowed to be yourself despite what people in the outside world are telling you.
I’m interested in knowing what society you’re talking about as well, just because I’m curious. Not all societies are like that. Here we all are as a society of sad people trying help each other through suicidal thoughts, and we all accept and love you for who are. Everything I’ve said to you, I’ve said out of brotherly love and genuine concern. I’m just curious is all.

What society thinks about you is completely irrelevant towards your life’s journey. You must understand that what society thinks about you doesn’t matter as long as you are happy. Period.

I kindda get what you are saying… I cant say its everyone… But im sure a lot of people i know and im related to who trash talks me now and just magnifies every single mistake i made (specially that of which i made 19 YEARS ago) would suddenly realize…

… Oh… But she was always sooo happy (or so they thought)
Oh… She was always there for us…
Oh… She was always so funny…
Oh… She was always so nice…
Oh… She was so artistic..
Oh… Oh…

… Too late.

Why cant they realize that while im still here?

Beauty standards really are ridiculous, they always have been. I’m Sorry it’s been getting you down, I think a lot more people get depressed over self hate than we think. Once I became more of a feminist and joining support groups for self acceptance, it’s become a bit easier, though I still struggle with self hate.( I’m working on it) Just remember that you are enough.

At times i wonder why the beauty standards have been kept for so long. I know one reason is because it sells, but people themselves keep on perpetuating and defending them (while busting their asses to keep up with them). It’s true that keeping a healthy diet and being fit is a good thing for everyone, but shoving down people’s throats that they must be perfect and flawless (according to society’s definition of it) is ridiculous.
